about

In the distant horizons of antiquity, Sri Lanka was an Island kissed by nature, blessed by gods, haunted be demons, gripped by mysteries and ruled by occultism. There could not have been any other people so preoccupied than Sri Lankans in the bewildering world of sorcery, cult practices, occult art, magic, necromancy, theurgy, thaumatury, demonology, bedevilment, witchcraft, exorcism, enchantment, mysticism, clairvoyance, spiritualism, table-turning, thought reading, charms, spells, spirit manifestations, capuism and grahaism.

In other countries, rituals and magical arts might have exercised sometimes considerable influence and even commanded many devoted votaries, but in Sri Lanka they were - and are - molded into a regular religion, arranged and methodized into an elaborate system, and even carefully preserved in writing through the ages.

Funeral In Heaven, is nothing more than a congregation of a few concerned and ardent individuals belonging to one of the few and remaining cautiously orchestrated systems of preservation of the dark arts of Sri Lanka.
