火花的消失是
你與彼岸連接的證明

Fire is believed to have the power of sublimation in ancestor worship. The spark disappears into the world beyond that transcends time and space. The very moment of transcendence is what worshippers count on. Shattered gold leaf, which is left on the body, indicates the boundary between the deceased and the living, and expresses the different emotions you think about when comparing the living with the deceased. The absence of the deceased does not represent their absolute vanishing, but their lack of presence will continue forever.

在拜祭先人儀式上,火被相信具有昇華的力量。火花穿越時間和空間,消失至彼岸。這一瞬間成為拜祭者的依靠。身上沾有的金箔碎告訴你逝者與生者的界限,在於憶起逝者與憶起生者,距離和心情上有著怎樣的不同。逝去並非等於消失,而是這不在的狀態會持續下去。
