Buddhist Funeral Services

To understand what our Buddhist Funeral Package Singapore contains, it is necessary to decode a Buddhist Funeral Service. Buddhist Funeral Services customs and rituals may vary upon region to region or country to country. This is due to the inflows of traditions and cultures and also the different school of Buddhism. However, at the core of Buddhism there is the concept of ‘Samsara’ – the cycle of life and death. Therefore, a Buddhist funeral is a ceremony of transition from this living world to the unknown or the next phase of life.

A Buddhist funeral is peaceful, calm, and serene. Most of the people in Singapore loved to plan Buddhist Funeral Services which are simple. Now, the center of the attraction in a Buddhist Funeral is the Buddhist altar. In addition, flowers and vegetable fruit offerings are made. And, no body touches the dead body for four (4) hours as this helps the soul to leave the body. In conclusion, cremation is taken place after the wake.

There are no specific guidelines for a Buddhist Funeral Service in Singapore. Therefore, often Singaporeans got influence from Chinese traditions while performing Buddhist Funeral ritual. Now, a Monk or a group of monks lead the funeral ceremony. Chanting Buddhist sutras, ringing gongs or bells are the inevitable part of Buddhist Funeral ceremony. This is a overview what you can get in Buddhist Funeral Packages.

Buddhist Funeral Rituals may vary depending upon the schools of Buddhism, within the schools and also depending on the country. The religion “Buddhism” founded by Siddhartha Gautama 2500 years ago in India. And, the heart of which is attaining “Nirvana” – The ultimate path of life. In addition, Buddhist people believe in afterlife. Thus, Buddhist funeral is all about a ceremony, chanting, and prayers so the dead may transit from one life to another peacefully.

Chanting Buddhist hymns is very important during a Buddhist funeral procession. A Buddhist funeral depicts the various stages of life and death of human being. It describes how we suffer, what causes us to suffer, and what we need to do to stop suffering.


Buddhist Funeral Packages

On a Buddhist funeral wake, guests light one single joss stick to pay respect to the dead at the Buddhist altar. Illuminating one single joss candle is a great way to pay respect to the deceased. Most people simply light one stick to represent that they want to honor someone. Guests pay respects at the altar, and then family members bow down as a form of appreciation.

Monks chant during the first day , last night, and on funeral days. Prior to being cremated, a monk will have a brief chanting session. After the funeral ceremony is over, the cremation takes place.
