辭靈儀式空前絕後， 二百軍陣， 弓馬全裝，填街塞巷，親屬堂客，轎子上百， 人山人海，殯壓帝京。

There is a ritual every seventh day, on the 2nd 7th day, the chief monk from Jade Temple leads chanting…on the 3rd the monk from Forever Lucky Temple comes chanting…on the 4th Zhao Lama comes praying…28 days later it’s a Farewell Ceremony. There are 200 troupes riding horses, fully filling in the lanes of the street, over 100 relatives in carts, hundreds of thousands people cover the town, a bigger ceremony than a royal event.
