Honouring ancestors is a nearly universal spiritual practice. In some religions, it appears as ancestor worship or praying to those who have gone before...or, as it says in Leviticus (19:3), to "revere" our fathers and mothers, who went before. (Bass, Dianne Butler, Grounded Finding God in the World - A Spiritual Revolution)
