The God of Hades Cremation Ritual

At the beginning of the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, the urn masters will bring the urns to the celebrated location and then a ritual will be performed to invite the God of Hades to that place. And during the end of the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, the God of Hades will be sent back to where he came from. This is done by burning the paper statue of the God of Hades. In some case where there are no paper statue of God of Hades, they will just simply burn the joss papers.
