Tomb Culture News
Today, I would like to say a news explain what has happened in Henan Province. Henan is the most populous province in China. Some people said say that Henan has a bad reputation, because it has an AIDS population of more than 30%, with patients, and people who from Henan will always be considered as liars. Nevertheless, it is located in the Central Plains area of China, and has a long history. They have attached great importance to the graves of the family members who has have died. The graves are round, look like small hills. You could imagine that how many "hills" there are in Henan, which has the largest population in China. So, the local government felt embarrassed, especially when some central leaders inspected Henan and a local officer had no words to answer the question of why there were so many "hills". Could they have replied " we have so many graves because we have so many people"? Then, Henan launched a grave levelleding policy. After that, 95% of the graves were leveled. However, many local people felt particularly sad, as they were afraid that their fathers (father's father...) who slept in the ground may not happy. Some people were against such policy, even against the local government. In order to avoid this these sort of things (as it quickly become a conflict) the government decided to stop leveling graves. As a result, the next day, after the issue of this file was just launched, many many "hills" appeared again. After the local people hearing heard the news, they got up at the middle of the night, called on the family to mound up the graves. You can see, how important the tombs are in people's hearts. In Chinese culture, burn paper is burned to honor dead people is also which is a significant thing. There is a saying that a person who dead died would went go to Sheol. Burning paper money regularly to the dead person could supported his/ her in the afterlife.
I have no idea what you are talking about.
