Can we go to the grave on the twelfth day of the first lunar month in 2021? Should we worship our ancestors and burn paper
is a historical culture in China. Since ancient times, sacrificial objects have been divided into three categories: Immortals, earth and gods. When it comes to the first month, there are many taboos and stresses in sacrificing ancestors. How about going to the grave on the twelfth day of the first month of the lunar calendar in 2021? Come and see!
can you go to the grave on the twelfth day of the first month of the lunar calendar in 2021? Lunar calendar: the twelfth day of the first month of 2021; Gregorian calendar: on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, Pisces [suitable for the old yellow calendar] sweeps the securities transaction, pays money, buys clothes, installs a bed, receives livestock, buries, herds, mortuaries, moves coffins, moves the upper beam and vertical column of the grave [forbidden by the old yellow calendar] From the point of view of the taboo of the Yellow calendar on the twelfth day of the first month of 2021, this day is not suitable for ancestor worship.
what needs to be prepared to burn paper for ancestor worship? First, prepare incense. Incense is like the signal we dial with our mobile phone. As soon as the incense is lit, our ancestors know that it is our children and grandchildren who come to sacrifice. Second, prepare fruit. Since the cemetery can manage our five generations, we'd better take five kinds of fruits. It's really inconvenient. You can take one. Don't be lazy. Third, prepare cakes. Fruit represents Yin and pastries represent Yang. In ancestor worship, we usually prepare fruit and cakes. It is only a custom in some places to sacrifice meat to ancestors. In the past, sacrificing heaven and land required three animals and five animals, which was more sacred. Our ancestors did not achieve the merit of heaven and earth, nor did they have the great blessing of heaven and earth, so the things that supply meat and blood are disrespectful to our ancestors. Fourth, prepare paper money. What kind of paper to burn? Pocketed paper. This is very orthodox. Such as ghost money and tianditong bank are all done by swindlers. Like counterfeit money, taking this kind of money to burn in Graves also defiles our ancestors. Think about it, how angry you would be if you took fake money?! This will not bring good luck, but disaster. Including burning mobile phones, telephones, cars and buildings, these are all businesses' acts of collecting money and are useless. We should not be fooled. We should not think that burning these is called filial piety.https://dailyq-a.com/Culture/22844.html
