七七斋

七七斋
Masses for the dead on every seventh day for seven times. During this period the deceased is in the (sa) antarābhava or intermediate state, known as 中有 and 中陰; at the end of forty-nine days, judgment having been made, he enters upon his next state. By observing the proper rites, his family may aid him in overcoming his perils and attaining to a happy destiny.
