What Happens In A Buddhist Funeral Service?
A Buddhist funeral service is a thoughtful ceremony that includes chanting, prayers, and rituals led by a monk or layperson, with attendees offering incense and participating in reflective practices.
The service often includes a sermon on Buddhist teachings regarding life, death, and impermanence, aiming to comfort the grieving family and friends. A final farewell ritual may also be part of the service, allowing attendees to pay their last respects to the deceased.
Buddhist Funerals & Customs
Buddhists believe in Karma and its consequences on reincarnation. Death marks the beginning of a new round of rebirth, determined by the quantity and quality of karma accumulated during the deceased’s lifetime. In accordance with Buddhist beliefs, the body is first bathed and clothed to prepare the body for the funeral, which is meant to be simple, dignified and a solemn expression of grief.
Buddhist funerals in Singapore are held according to Buddhist funeral rites with chanting led by monks to assist the deceased in transitioning more smoothly into the next life. Having a proper funeral send-off and performing funeral activities extends beyond a display of filial piety or a final meaningful act of love; it is also when the bereaved family can cherish a peaceful closure and aid the deceased in their afterlife journey. This funeral ceremony serves as a good reminder to all in the present, of life’s transient nature.
