“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Oh yeah, sure I've done funerals. In Buddhism, and Vajrayana in particular, you get to do a lot of the ritual yourself, much more so than in Christianity. You are expected to. There is Sukhavati, and Amitabha practice in general. I was just doing one last week as it goes.

I've meditated with corpses and I've watched cremations where they burn the body in front of you. One of my best friends is a hospice chaplain (Buddhist but does all comers). So yeah.
