More than a thousand graves scattered over the fields, occupying more than 100 acres of land. In order to solve the problem of the "devil land" between the dead and the living, the villagers in Siluo Village, Siling Township, Wuxuan County (Laobin City, Guangxi Province) negotiated and relocated the remains of the ancestors to 8 cemeteries. This action not only saves a lot of arable land, but also saves a lot of time and energy when the villagers sweep the grave. It also facilitates sweeping and is recognized by the Ministry of Civil Affairs.
The first time the burial was carried out, it was reprimanded to be a â€œrevengeâ€
The first move of the graves was the Si Bing Village primary school teacher, Ping Bing, who was deeply worried about the grave-burial burial and the death of the dead and the struggle for living. Every year on the Ching Ming Festival, when he saw villagers gravely not only spent a lot of time and energy, but also made a mess in the village, he strongly hoped to reform rural tombs.
"It would be nice if we can relocate the remains of the ancestors to the designated places." This is a bold proposal to the elderly in the village.
"Unless we are dead, you can relocate the ancestors' bones!" The idea of â€‹â€‹obliviousness was scolded by the elders and criticized as being "rebellious", but others thought that his idea was feasible. There is no discouragement in this article. Once he is free, he goes to the door to explain to the elders the benefits of unified relocation. With his efforts, the elders finally nodded in agreement.
In September 2002, the remains of the first ancestral graves in Sirao Village were buried in a designated tomb area. On the day of relocation, hundreds of villagers came to watch. Under the mobilization of the founding article, the tribe moved more than 30 ancestral remains to the same cemetery for burial.
No village, more convenient to grave
In the afternoon of April 11, the reporter saw in the village of Sirou that the sweeping activities in the village had ended and the villagers were busy farming in their own land.
â€œBefore this time, we were still in the mountains and we were busy sweeping the tombs everywhere!â€ said the villager Pei Yun-gun, told reporters that their family had lived here for hundreds of years, and that the ancestorâ€™s grave had more than 30 sites scattered throughout Wuxuan, Xiangzhou, Xingbin District and other places are far from Maping Township in Xiangzhou County. Every year during the Ching Ming period, he and his family have to go around and spend a week cleaning up more than 30 tombs. When his family buys only sacrifices, firecrackers and round-trip tolls, it will cost two or three thousand yuan.
He Yunjuan said that since the founding articles took the lead to relocate the remains of their ancestors to the cemetery, the grave-sweeping tombs on the Ching Ming Festival have become an opportunity for relatives and friends to reunite, and dozens of people in the clan have agreed to go to the cemetery and come up with sacrifices. Firecrackers took only an hour or two to complete the sweeping ceremony. Afterwards, the entire tribe took part in the reunion dinner together, leaving only twenty or thirty yuan for each household.
After seeing the benefits of exhumation, other villagers in the village followed suit. After several years of hard work, the remains of thousands of dead people have been buried in the 8 cemeteries in Shiluo Village.
Land-saving, cemetery has many advantages
On March 11th, the reporter saw in the village of Siluo that in front of the houses of the villagers, there were a large number of flat farmlands. Behind the houses were pleasantly landscaped mountains. The whole village was clean and tidy, which contrasted sharply with the phenomenon seen everywhere in other villages. .
The reporter saw that the eight cemeteries were built in deserted wastelands, each with an average height of about 2 meters and an area of â€‹â€‹about 50 square meters. The cemetery is a cement structure, leaving a gate to the south of each cemetery so that the villagers can preserve their bones or ashes. The floor of the tomb was a ladder-like staircase and the gold altar with the bones of the dead was placed in order according to the age of death of the deceased and the order of generations.
The villagers said that the initial starting point for the relocation was only to facilitate the sweeping of the Qing dynasty. What everyone did not expect was that after the graves were buried, there were a lot of arable land available in the village. According to traditional thinking, as long as there are tombs, the surrounding land is mostly abandoned. With an average of 0.1 mu of cultivated land occupied by each grave, the villageâ€™s 1,000-plus tombs will occupy at least 100 mu of cultivated land, while the eight cemeteries occupy only about 0.6 mu.
Government support to promote stimulating experience
Liao Maoteng, deputy township head of Siling Township, explained that the practice of Sirou Village belongs to the spontaneous nature of the villagers. In November last year, the leaders of the civil affairs departments at the two levels of the Autonomous Region and Laibin City came to inspect. They fully affirmed the practice of Sirou Village. After inspecting the superiors, they suggested that the whole village should bring together the cemeteries of each family, which would make it easier for everyone to concentrate on the confession.
To this end, Wuxuan County will establish Lingtang District, Jiugu Chenfang District, and tomb plaza in the cemetery area, and will separate the plaza from the mourning hall so that the villagers will have a meeting place when they savor the ancestors.
At present, the Ministry of Civil Affairs of the autonomous region has allocated a special amount of 300,000 yuan to build 3 cemetery demonstration sites in the three villages of Sanwen, the ancient class and the ancient village of Siling Township. The relevant cemetery drawings have been designed by relevant persons from the Wuxuan County Housing and Construction Bureau. According to the cemetery's two land occupation plans of 100 and 150 square meters respectively, the villagers will select according to their own circumstances, and the fees will be paid from the civil affairs special funds. Once the time is ripe, it will be fully promoted in the remaining five administrative villages in the township.
