Chapter excerpt

In traditional Chinese thought, the highest harmony called "wo". One of the most ancient Chinese classics "Yi Zhuan" said: "the trunk changes, all is life, harmony, but cheer." Here the "Tai" "too" is the ultimate meaning, "and" refers to the harmonious, the whole sentence: the Yin and yang balance both things, suitable, no partial victory, to reach the harmonious perfection. Therefore, the "harmony" is the highest of human society the most 'state. Song Daru Zhang Zaiyun: "Tai He called Road, covered in ups and downs, lifting, the movement phase, dense phase finishes the outcome is the beginning of flexion and extension." The "harmony" to "Tao" in height, is the highest ideal for human society, harmonious state but also the people hope for the best overall. "The words" also said: "the great and the heaven and the moral, with the sun and the moon with its clear, shut its sequence with the four seasons, and the demons and their fate. And the days of birth against Inverness, the day after tomorrow and Mukden, day and put back, let alone to human being, and depending on the condition on the." The so-called "adult" is the ideal state of "perfect person", its lofty behaviour, its bright with sun and moon, the advance and retreat of the order and the four match, the match with the good or ill luck and rewards. This not only of the people and themselves, people and people, people and social harmony, but also the human and the nature and the "ghosts" each other through mutual fusion and unity. This is in fact the Chinese harmonious funeral should strive to achieve the highest goal and the best state. So, the core concept of Chinese harmonious funeral should be: "heaven and earth into the dance". What is meant by "heaven and earth into the dance"? "Heaven and earth" and "the nature", "human" is the subject and society, "God" is dead. "Heaven and earth into the dance" that is the nature of the universe, the human society and the spiritual harmony, coexistence and common prosperity. In traditional Chinese folk culture, "God is dead". From the life management perspective the funeral industry from the angle of life philosophy, and in fact is to let the living and the dead are able to in a good communication and interaction of state, living and deceased can maintain a harmonious relationship with the society, the good. However, the funeral industry of China to see obviously haven't achieve this goal on the whole. For example, widely practiced cremation cause people resist psychology and behavior; the funeral industry in some departments and the industry is not standardized, service level is not high, resulting in the funeral industry with the family and social disharmony; mass graves cemetery. Buried, no planning, or planning is not in place, the tomb became "the cancer", let the unrest, the lament the destruction of nature, resulting in the living, society and the nature, the universe is not harmonious; worship of improper arrangement makes the living and the dead to communication causes disharmony. These are worthy of our attention problems.......
