Taoist Funeral Services

To understand, Taoist Funeral Packages we must understand about Taoist Funeral Services & its elements. Now, ‘Taoism’ or ‘Daoism’ had its roots in ancient china. It is more than a religion and it is a philosophy or way of life. Taoism instructs Taoists people to exist in harmony with nature. The balance between ‘Yin’ & ‘Yang’ is the teaching of Lao Tzu. To conclude, Taoism focuses on balancing of the good and the bad inside us and achieves inner peace.

Around 8.8% population of Singapore consists of Taoist people. However, the origin or believes of Chinese Taoist people of Singapore adhered to the Zhengyi school of Taoism. Now, there are different dialects of Taoists in Singapore (e.g. Hakka, Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese, & Hainan). Funeral customs, services may vary slightly depending upon the dialects of the deceased. And, City Funeral consider all the rituals of Taoism carefully based on different dialects. Therefore, our Taoist Funeral Package is crafted conserving the emotions and believes of the Taoists of Singapore.

One of the most important aspects of Taoist funerals is celebrating the deceased’s life rather than mourning their death. Preparing a feast for the deceased’s spirit to enjoy on its long journey back to heaven is part of this. The celebration should be joyful and upbeat, with no negative feelings or memories of the deceased.

In conclusion, we may conclude Taoism also focuses on after life. Therefore, a Taoist Funeral Service is based on this afterlife concept of Taoism. And, a Taoist Funeral is an absolute celebration of life and helping the soul in smooth transition to the different world.

Taoist Funeral

A Taoist Funeral Singapore will include an altar with a sacred lamp and two candles, as well as a photograph of the deceased placed in front of the casket. Around the altar,  joss sticks and candles will be placed for family and friends to pay their respects to the deceased.

As an offering to the deceased, their favourite foods will be placed. The Taoist priest will chant and recite scriptures and sutras. Following the chanting, the priest circles a fire in which the nine tiles are placed. The nine tiles represent the underworld’s nine levels.

The priest then waves a sword to ward off any evil spirits present in the ceremony and breaks the tiles to free the deceased’s soul from the underworld. A priest sits on a lotus-shaped seat throughout the funeral procession, praying to Guan Yin, the Chinese goddess of mercy.

Taoist funeral ceremonies frequently include an altar with a sacred lamp, two candles, tea, rice, and water.
The sacred lamp represents the light of wisdom, but it is also known as the Golden Pill or Elixir of Immortality.
Two tall candles, one on each side of the lamp, represent the light of the sun, moon, and both eyes of the human body.
In front of the altar, cups of tea, rice, and water are placed. Tea represents yin, water represents yang energy, and rice represents the union of yin and yang.


Five fruit plates are used to represent the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Green, red, yellow, white, and black are the colours associated with these elements. These elements are all part of a cycle that, when balanced, ensures the body's health. In the center of the five elements is an incense burner. Incense burning represents the refinement and purification of the soul, also known as the inner energies.


The ceremony is usually held in a person's home over an odd number of days, usually three, five, or seven. During the time before burial, the candle is lit for the body. The relatives wear white during the vigil and funeral.


Taoist people believe in resurrection soul. And, funeral is not the end of life rather an another beginning. A Taoist funeral is always a celebration of life and helping the soul to reach afterlife.

Now, it may seems Buddhist Funeral or Taoist funeral both are same and happens for odd no. of days only. No, that is not correct. Buddhism started in India and based on Buddha's teaching to attain 'Nirvana'. On the another hand, Taoism is a Chinese folk religion based on the writings of Tao/ Dao. Now, both of them have different outlook over death. As a result, rituals or funeral rites are completely different.

There are 49 days of mourning period in Taoism. And, it can be extended up to 100 days. A Taoist Funeral Singapore only happens for odd no. of days. For example, 3, 5, & 7 days.

In City Funeral, Taoist Funeral Service starts pricing from $SGD7588 (Peace). There are 2 more Taoist Funeral Service Packages Honour ($SGD9588), & Legacy ($SGD11588).
