Last day

Today marks the last day of this year’s autumnal equinoctial week.

.

During vernal and autumnal equinoctial weeks, Japanese people customarily visit their family graves, clean them and present offerings.

.

However, I haven’t given much thought to that.

.

Now, I have learned that in Buddhist thinking, during these weeks the distance between the land of the living and that of the dead becomes smallest.
