How does one dispose of things which are either considered sacred, or hold too much sentimental value so that throwing it in the rubbish bin feels wrong?
Are there any objects which may be considered sacred anymore? It would seem that, in our mass production era, objects rarely hold sacred value by virtue of their existance. The sacredness is given by their owner, through their continued use in ritual, or by the significance of the person who gave it to us.
Since we lack spiritual training, these things tend to accumulate, and the bearer is soon overburdened, not knowing how or where to give them their appropriate place.
It is said that the proper way of disposing of the Quoran is either burning it in a ceremonial way, or burying it covered in cloth on sacred ground. It would seem a sensible way of aleviating the burden when one ought to remain lightweight.
