Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

I quit Pariprashnena several months ago


But the site doesn't have account deletion button so it may look I'm still there.
Whoever was/is asking me anything there, please do it here, in forum, by pm or email.

Re 10 days after death when the soul still stays on earth:

This is hinted at in Garuda Purana (trans. J.L. Shastri/A board of scholars, Motilal Banarsidass, Delhi 1982):
2.10.82 Whatever pinda the sons or kins give him during the ten days, the same unites the Vayuja body with the pindaja body.
2.15.74 On the eleventh day and the twelfth, the soul of dead eats to his fill.
2.15.76 On the thirteenth day, the soul of the dead is taken to the High Way. Now he assumes a body of the pinda and feels hungry by day and night.
2.18.39 Here [in Yamaloka] he [dead man] gives up his dreadful body, of the measure of arm, which he derived within ten days from the ten pindas gifted to him by his descendants.
