Confucian Family Ceremony for The Ancestor in My family, Korea

in #life4 years ago (edited)

December 19 was 3rd years aniversary since my dadd had passed away. I can’t believe that my dad does not exist in this world. I still remember his voice, his face and his silly humor…

In Korean family, a special ceremony for the ancestors has been undergoing in the House of Confucian tradition family.
I think Korea is the only country where the Confucian ceremony has been served until now which has been originated from several thousand ago

Buddhist family also has performed this ceremony in Korea.
In some case, Buddhist family is inclined to serve this ceremony more and bigger.

In Catholic family, also this kinds of ceremony is undergoing under the circumstance of any spiritual signal removed.

In Protestant family, this ceremony had been banned from it’s beginning.

My mom is Catholic. This ceremony is very important to her, because she had grown up in Confucian family. Even though she believe in God, the ceremony for ancestors is the most important thing to her.

She is still believing through this ceremony, our ancestors are taking care of us in the Heaven.

She prepared foods by herself for the ceremony.

Photos could show you better than my poor English
The table setting for the ceremony

There is a provided procedure for the ceremony

The ceremony is a kinds of the invitation for the ancestors

With Rice wine and Bow, we need to show our respect to the ancestors.

Last procedure is burning the paper for the invitation of my father.

Burning that paper is as same as saying a good bye to my father's soul.

For long time ago, they really believed in that this paper would invite the soul of family ancestors.

Thank you

Oh. Cool photo. Thanks for your sharing.

님의 마음처럼 정성스럽게 차려진 제사상이네요.
저는 아버지 기일이면 선산을 찾아갑니다.
거울을 보면 내나이 때의 아버지를 보는 느낌입니다.
세상 사는게 다 그렇지요
다시 볼수 없는 것들을 그리워 하면서....
눈치 안보고 자주 찾아 뵙겠습니다.
영어가 짧아 우리말로 씁니다.

감사합니다.
시간이 갈수록 아버님이 그리워 집니다.
사람이 더 그리워지구요.
세상일 아무것도 아닌 것 같은 생각도 듭니다,

yummy))

Give my greatest respect to your father and your family.May you safe and healthy forever. thanks for sharing.

thank you so much

Fantastic Photos, the clarity is amazing! Very nice post here, Thanks.

This is a fantastic post! Thank you for inviting us to join you for this ceremony, and teaching us a little about the culture and tradition.

Your father's memory will live on forever on the steem blockchain.

My thoughts exactly. What a wonderful post. Respect to your father and ancestors @slowwalker.

thank you so much

Reading your post I think it's really a touching ceremony. From to cook food to the burned paper to say goodby, it's all very touching. I think to know the tradition on how to "remember" our ancestors is one of the most interesting thing in every culture and It's touching for me to see how much love you show for your ancestor.

thank you
but now it is changing now even in korea

nice, i love te'!

Always love and stay with your family guys.
peace and love for you @slowwalker.

Stay strong my friend, stop grieving after him, but never forget him!

when I was young, whenever my father burn that paper at the end of ceremony, I worried that my father's hand might be burnt.

Merry Christmas all the best wishes to you @slowwalker

nice work hopefully we make same you for one post

Because you took the time to remember and reflect, you did invite the souls of your family back. That is what it takes. If we just go on down every road and through every door opened to us without taking time for pause we lose the soul of what family and other humans all hold dear in the best and worst of times.

I'm new here. I don't know anything or anyone. can you help me, please?
Also Please like my post,please vote,comments and resteem it.

It makes me smile to see other people are still practicing their culture and tradition. My Father passed away on 22 December 2007 , and it's just a different day for the family and we all have something we do to remember them by. Bless you for this wonderful post :)

yes.
every people has it's own unique tradition

Love and respect for your family. Nice ceremony and pictures. Keep enjoying.

Nice post ,relly good ..

@slowwalker i am sorry to hear of your very sad loss . this ritual cermony sounds like a great way to help deal with passing i a hope you have a very merry xmas

I think Korea is the only country where the Confucian ceremony has been served until now which has been originated from several thousand ago

Is it true?? I have thought China also has served like us :ㅇ

as far as I have heard, there is no more ceremony like that in main land china

I didn't know it. I just got to know they don't do anymore.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely honoring ceremony and letting us into a special space in your life and heart! I hold ceremony close to my life, as I try to make every day ceremonial in its own ways, I come from Native American descant so honoring myself, family and our Mother Earth is a part of my life. I love that your mother is catholic but still honors and puts her heart into the ceremony... Cheers to life and the never ending flow of energy!

This is a traditional ceremony of Korea as well as some parts of East Asia where they follows Confucianism to show respect to the ancestor and family. Thanks for sharing the interesting East Asian culture to the foreigners :) This is somewhat they are really interested in. I also share some Korean traditional cultures to foreigners when I am with them. When they hear it, sometimes they reveal that they can't believe what I just said. Since the globe is big, and we all have different culutral value from time to time, and place to place, I hope Steemit becomes a platform where we can communicate and share about our lives and culture :)

I hope you are doing well all of the time !

thank you
your comment gives me strength

My father passed away last June 11, 2015 and it's really hard to accept the fact that he is not here anymore. Especially on occasions like this (Christmas).

We have different beliefs and culture but there's one thing that we all have in common. RESPECT.

I was so amazed! I wonder how Koreans' Chinese New Year would be. Thank you for sharing with me the Confucian one. I can feel the love and respect in your family as well. Thank you very much.

저희집은 지방을 쓰지 않고 사진으로 대신합니다.
오래전엔 어르신이 지방을 끝까지 태우는 방법을 알려주시기도 했는데요.
정성스럽게 준비된 제사상이네요.
잘 보고 갑니다.

Family ancestor ceremony is always done by families who are left to commemorate the spirit of his body, according to their respective beliefs and customs of a place ..

The rite acts as a bridge to maintain the relationship with family today. It is a day when relatives living in a faraway land gather to honor their ancestors. Happy New Year.^^

irs very good keep it up....

Thanks for sharing, even visited several countries each country has different culture for their family ancestors. I also agree with that, the Korean has a unique culture.

thank you for your comment

d job
Have a nice day
FUND me

What a marvelous ceremony, you are so lucky to have a mother like him and you are also very lucky to have a very good father.
Although it's dead but you always remember him ..

"December 19 was 3rd years aniversary since my dadd had passed away. I can’t believe that my dad does not exist in this world. I still remember his voice, his face and his silly humor…" For our family it was already the second Christmas without my dear father. He left us too early, but he will always be part of the family. His laughter accompanies us every day and we all carry his happiness in our hearts....

I miss my father
