Visit a Cemetery Day takes place on the last Sunday in October each year. For many, this is a traditional day on which it is necessary to visit the places where relatives and friends are buried. Although they are not with us in the physical plane, they will forever remain in our memory. Make the date a tradition.
Cemeteries have existed for a long time. The concept has not changed to this day, but this is not only a place for those who have left forever. Here you can plunge into thoughts about the eternal, sit in silence. Some people think that you can meditate here – the energy is so high. Looking at the tombstones of different people, you involuntarily think that life is short, you need not put it off until later.
Visiting cemeteries, one feels a connection with the dead. In the physical world they lie underground, but spiritually they are with us. Today we need to say words of gratitude for the fact that we have become what we are now. Usually this is the merit of our relatives.
