'As a person sheds worn-out garments and wears new ones,
likewise, at the time of death, the soul casts off it's worn-out body and enters a new one'.
The word dhoti is derived from Sanskrit: dhauti "to cleanse or wash" | The cleansed garment which was worn during śrauta sacrifices or religious sessions in general. The Dothi's of men living in an ashram, who left their earthly life and their families behind. The last stage, the last chapter in life is lived in solitude to reflect and learn to embrace death and impermanence. Death is never sudden, it's prepared, not something to sleep through but to be experienced. It is after all an absolute end, no one here wishes to come back to live an other life on earth. The garments are paper thin, worn out and washed everyday so one is always ready to leave earth.
