Sadness and grief are universal  feelings, yet ways of coping with them differ in various cultures and religions.

While some religions have prescribed mourning periods and memorial events, others celebrate the end of life with joy. 
Explore the richness of bereavement in various cultures and faith traditions through the walk-in exhibitions, enriching exchanges, informal discussions or an inter-faith commemoration ritual.
