Soka Funeral Services Gallery
Soka funeral services are held by Soka Gakkai members for their loved ones who have passed on. The purpose of the Soka funeral ceremony is to offer support, sympathy and sincere condolences to the family of the deceased, share in their grief and help the deceased to attain enlightenment.
Soka Gakkai organisations
Soka Gakkai (创价学会) is a Japanese Buddhist religious movement based on the teachings of the thirteenth century Buddhist monk, Nichiren as taught by the first three presidents of the Soka Gakkai movement.
In Singapore, the Soka movement is led by the Singapore Soka Association (SSA). SSA is part of the international network of affiliated organisations under Soka Gakkai International (SGI) which has memberships in countries and territories across the globe.
Creation of value
Soka recognises that all life has infinite inherent potential. As such, its members believe that Buddhahood exists in everyone, ready to be awakened through the practice prescribed by Nichiren. Soka teachings focus on guiding practitioners towards living a worthy life, maximising their full potential and being a useful member of society.
Simple, sincere funeral services
Reflecting these beliefs, Soka funeral services are simple and sincere ceremonies. Funeral arrangements are minimalist and meaningful, with the occasion being marked as a solemn time for all involved to offer their sincerest condolences and sympathy to the deceased and their family.
Leading the chants
Soka funeral ceremonies are conducted by a Soka Gakkai leader who leads the recitation of the Sutra and chanting during the funeral. Soka Gakkai members believe it is not rituals, but sincere and wholehearted recitation of the Sutra and chanting of the Daimoku by the leader and members during the funeral ceremony that will help the deceased to attain enlightenment.
