A Paath, also called Path, is the pious chanting, recitation, or reading of a sacred text among followers of Hinduism. Garudpuran Paath or the reading and recitation of the Garuda Purana is a very important cornerstone of the lives of Hindu devotees. Smriti is a collection of Hindu sacred texts. Part of it are the 18 Puranas. The Garuda Purana is one of them. It is a grand epic that is presented in the form of a conversation between Lord Vishnu and Garuda, the King of Birds.
Essentially as a benchmark of Hindu philosophy, the Garuda Purana talks about the meaning and reason of human life, atonement of sins, sacred mantras, worship methods, and austerity measures in life, among others. It also contains detailed concepts of the afterlife, reincarnation, and funeral ceremonies.
The recitation and chanting of the Garuda Purana or Garudpuran Paath is done as a Hindu funeral liturgy during funeral rites. The chanting of the Garuda Purana epic is said to help in the attainment of supreme destination, after experiencing desires on Earth. The recitation of the Garuda Purana also explains the life of the soul after the demise of the human material body, as well as the general meaning of life before physical death.
Among traditional Hindu devotees who have had a recent death in the family, the recitation of the Garuda Purana is customarily conducted until the completion of all rituals by the 13th day after the death of the loved one. Punya or sacred virtue is said to be achieved when one listens to or reads the Garuda Purana. For followers of the Hindu religion, the Garuda Purana is read during cremation of the body of their dearly departed.
