The Aghori Babas, who live in the city of Varanasi, India, are famous for eating the dead. They believe that the greatest fear human beings have is the fear of their own deaths, and that this fear is a barrier to spiritual enlightenment.

These people are set afloat down the Ganges, where the Aghori pull them from the water and ritually consume them.
