[name of] the role and the practice of giving robes or cloth (white, orange) to monks at a funeral. New robes are placed on a coffin and received by the monks who then chant and pour water for the deceased in order to transfer merit.

notesOriginally from a "rag robe" (from Sanskrit/Pali "Pansukula" dust heap) which monks picked up from e.g. a cemetery where corpses were wrapped into cloth. They then wear it as a sign of strict asceticism (one of the 13 ways of dhutanga). Extinct usage.
