If a man is hanged, a string is suspended in the house on the occasion of the guar, so that the spirit may descend along it.
The second feast to the dead, also sacrificial, is called the guar.
Every one of the stones has been put up at one of these guar feasts.
The guar is supposed to give the Kulba considerable satisfaction, and it does not injure people as it did before.
But, as the guar does not quite satisfy the Kulba, there is the great biennial feast to the dead.
The great feature of the guar is the erection of a stone in memory of the deceased.
I once came across some hundreds of Saoras performing the guar Karja.
