Guide For A Taoist Funeral Service
Navigating a Taoist funeral service requires understanding its deep-rooted customs and traditions. Our Taoist funeral packages at Casket Fairprice are designed to honour these practices, ensuring a respectful and meaningful service.
Taoism and Death: A Fundamental Understanding
Before we delve into the specifics of Taoist funeral customs and traditions, gaining an insight into the Taoist perception of death is crucial. This foundational knowledge aids in grasping the symbolic and ritualistic elements integral to the service.
Taoists perceive death as a vital phase in the ongoing cycle of life, death, and rebirth, referred to as the Tao process (轮回).
Upon death, the individual embarks on a journey guided by the Heibai Wuchang (黑白无常), two deities who serve as escorts to the afterlife. The journey leads to the ten courts of hell, where the Ox-head and Horse-face (牛头马面) stand guard.
Here, the individual’s life is thoroughly examined, and a judgement is made by the Kings of Hell, weighing the individual’s virtues against their sins.
Taoist Funeral Traditions, Customs, And Beliefs
Taoist funeral services are steeped in rich traditions, with specific customs and beliefs guiding the proceedings.
Central to the ceremony are Taoist priests, who conduct various rites and chants, ensuring the soul’s peaceful transition to the afterlife. They are crucial in navigating the intricate rituals that define a Taoist funeral service.
A ceremonial altar is set up, adorned with items significant to Taoist beliefs, where family and friends can pay their respects.
Here, offerings of joss paper, symbolic of wealth and prosperity in the afterlife, are burnt as a gesture of goodwill and support for the departed soul.
The attire worn at Taoist funerals is also essential, with white being the traditional colour of mourning. It reflects reverence and respect for the deceased. Close family members might don more specific Taoist funeral attire, adhering to traditional customs.
Condolence money, or ‘pek kim’, is another customary practice where attendees present a white envelope containing a monetary gift to the bereaved family.
This act is a tangible expression of sympathy and support, reinforcing the communal aspect of grieving and remembrance in Taoist tradition.
Through these practices, a Taoist funeral package ensures that all aspects of the service align with Taoism’s profound beliefs and customs, offering a fitting farewell and support for the family during this solemn time.
