3 Days Buddhist Funeral Package

Due to this, the Buddhist funeral services in Singapore also differ per the beliefs and practice changes. However, for most of the part, Buddhists have faith in the reincarnation of the soul after death. Despite the difference of opinions, this principle is fundamental and determines the underpinnings of most Buddhist funerals.

Buddhist Funeral Traditions in Singapore

Funerals, while inevitable, can be shrouded in mystery and anxiety. Our four-part series aims to shed light on these practices, guiding you through the funeral customs, traditions, and etiquette of Singapore's major religions.

This first chapter delves into Singapore's respectful and meaningful world of Buddhist funeral traditions. Let's explore the rituals and customs honouring the deceased and guiding them on their next journey.

In addition, we can also assist with a range of other tasks frequently required in making funeral arrangements, such as organising professional photography and videography to document the ceremony and TV video montage.

The excerpt about Buddhist funeral customs in Singapore:

Monks and Chantings: The sombre atmosphere is often punctuated by the rhythmic chanting of monks reciting sutras (sacred Buddhist texts). Families may choose to have monks present throughout the wake or only at specific times. Their presence guides the deceased on their spiritual journey and offers solace to those grieving.

The Final Procession: A short procession takes place as the wake concludes. Family members follow the hearse carrying the casket for a brief distance before departing for the cremation or burial site. This procession symbolizes the final farewell and the deceased's passage into the next life.

Showing Respect: A Guide to Buddhist Funeral Etiquette for Guests

As we attend a Buddhist funeral, a natural question arises: how can we, as guests, respectfully participate in this ceremony?

While the core traditions involve the immediate family, familiarizing yourself with Buddhist funeral etiquette demonstrates courtesy and respect.

Dress Code:

  • Family: Typically dressed in white.
  • Guests: Opt for darker colours. Avoid red, a celebratory colour in some cultures.

Offering Respect:

  • Joss Sticks: Lighting an incense stick is a common practice, but not mandatory.
  • Alternatives: If you're uncomfortable with joss sticks, a simple bow or silent contemplation near the deceased is a perfectly acceptable way to show respect.

Remember:

  • Quiet Demeanor: Maintain a respectful and quiet presence throughout the ceremony.
  • Following Cues: Observe how monks or family members behave, and adjust your posture accordingly (standing when they stand, sitting when they sit).
  • Offer Condolences: Express your sympathies to the bereaved family.

By following these simple guidelines, you can ensure your presence at a Buddhist funeral is both respectful and supportive during this difficult time.
