Different countries probably vary, but in the UK this would be out of the question. Crematoria here do occasional "open days", when the public can go "behind the scenes", but you would not get to see dead bodies.
I tried this in Norway. I was initially trying to get a job there and was in dialogue with the agency that was contracted to operate the place. There was no chance of employment but i was invited to take a look in the oven:)
I hope it wasn't occupied at the time!
I was kind of disappointed about not getting the position and ended up not going to look but they offered me to look at bodies being burned. However if i remember correctly they told me that they got bodies packed in bodybags that the bags went straight in the oven and that there were cameras monitoring the burning as well as the option to look directly into the oven.

The funeral parlor jobs are quite lucrative and it is way easier albeit not that easy to get work there compared to getting a job at the crematoriums i think.

I came to add something, but I also bookmarked quite a few links here. Thanks for sharing, all.

Personally what I have used for asubha in the past was "Body Worlds," Gunther von Hagens' plastinations.


Whenever I see a beautiful woman in public, I recall Body Worlds and....ya....it helps.

https://bodyworlds.com/

Will not post any pics; a google search of "body worlds" will more than suffice if anyone is interested.
Is there something more powerful than any sacrifice? Worth more than a trillion dollars?
Lets find out!


Give neither money nor attention to those who promote adhamma as dhamma.

Give money and respect to those who promote dhamma as dhamma.

“Come, Friend, you too must die. Why moan about it so?
Even Patroclus died, a far, far better man than you.
And look, you see how handsome and powerful I am?
The son of a great man, the mother who gave me life--
A deathless goddess. But even for me, I tell you,
Death and the strong force of fate are waiting.

Perhaps, but seeing that original image on this Forum, could trigger lust among some males. I know the intention is good, but this image is a bit intense, imo; perhaps a link to the video would be more appropriate, rather than just scrolling down then suddenly there's a naked woman...

Here is an asubha source for me: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019 ... -be-caged/


After seeing the photos in this my libido decreased drastically.

Careful, reading that website may also make your iq decrease drastically :tongue:
A dying man can only rely upon his wisdom, if he developed it. Wisdom is not dependent upon any phenomenon originated upon six senses. It is developed on the basis of the discernment of the same. That’s why when one’s senses start to wither and die, the knowledge of their nature remains unaffected. When there is no wisdom, there will be despair, in the face of death.
