Our fascination with death is universal, but around the world we deal with it in wildly different ways—from the burning corpses that fill the Ganges in India, to the macabre exhibitions of “plastinated” bodies created by German anatomist Gunther von Hagens. In Toraja, Indonesia, dead relatives stay in the house for years, and are worshiped as shrines, and offered food and drink. And in Mexico, witness the ancient Toltec ritual of being buried alive for a night—one that's enjoying a revival as a new-age quest for enlightenment.
