David Bowie's Ashes to be Scattered as Buddhist Ritual

THE INDEPENDENT
By Serina Sandhu
Over five decades David Bowie sold more than 140 million records and amassed an estate worth $100m (£70m). The beneficiaries of this remarkable career were revealed as his wife, Iman, and his two children. Bowie, who died at the age of 69 on 10 January, also requested that his ashes be scattered on the Indonesian island of Bali in line with “Buddhist rituals”. His last wish comes as no surprise as the artist had been fascinated by the religion and even studied it in London. [link]
