The body is carried to the burial site on the lucky daytime. Meanwhile a large number of cypress branches is going to be burned to make smoke to be able to attract condors to be able to eat the body. If the vultures occur and eat the body, it implies that the dead has zero sin thinking that his/her soul has gone peacefully to the Paradise intended for Tibetans believe the condors on the mountains across the celestial burial platform are generally "holy birds" along with only eat the skin without attacking any tiny animals neighborhood. Any continues to be left from the holy birds have to be collected "up" and burnt protected Lamas chant sutras to be able to redeem the sins from the dead, because the remains would certainly tie the spirits to the present life.
