Bajoran Funeral Ritual (Brief version)


Star Trek Celebrations webpage by Maureen McTigue.

Bajorans light a lamp called a duranja for the dead, which is supposed to burn continuously during the period of mourning. Over the candle, one says the following, in Bajoran:

Raka-ja ut shala morala. Ema bo ru kana. Uranak ralanon (name). Propeh va nara ehsuk shala-kan vunek.

("Do not let him walk alone. Guide him on his journey. Protect the one named (name). Take him into the gates of heaven.")
