This presentation summary notes that in Hindu religion, suicide disturbs the cosmic balance & equilibrium of society. It identifies changes that have occurred for Hindu migrants to The Netherlands but notes that the taboo on suicide has remained thus necessitating involvement by both western professional helpers & Hindu priests in overcoming the impact of suicidal deaths. The Dutch Government has appointed special migrant teams in areas where there is a dense Hindu population.
