Also, if lightning poured Chura or split it in such a way that part with the face broke off and fell to the ground. Rite Farewell to churom is solemn, but not festive, without guests.

If the attackers tried to burn Chura (and they would have to raise around a fire) it is difficult to distinguish between the two hearths — Sacred and divorced around Chur. However, the difference is still necessary to carry out (if possible).
