Question about Buddhist Funeral

Do they normally keep going on for weeks?

I swear I have never seen one last for more than a week or so.

This one by my house has been there for 2 weeks + now.

The chanting has stopped though.

Oh, but then a Buddhist sound truck came by this morning to make sure I got my daily ration of Buddhist chanting.

I really don't mind this, except it clashes with the idyllic Buddhism in my mind...silent meditation in a mountain temple...maybe the occasional deep "BONG" of a bell ringing.

I also don't like those "GO VEG. SAVE THE PLANET" bumper stickers.

We all know that the diet best suited to saving the most animals actually is a beef, dairy, and vegetable diet.
