Funeral Prayer

Trace a circle on the corpse's forehead with a paste made from wet powdered red chalk

I anoint you with the red of blood:
may the blood of life return to you in that other world.
I anoint you with the wet:
may the suppleness of water return to you in that other world.
I anoint you with the sun:
may the warmth of the sun return to you in that other world.
I anoint you with the red, moist sun:
may life return to you in that other world.
