Supporting You With The Preparations
Our Buddhist funeral services still carry this solid credence: birth, old age, and illness. All of this translates into planning for the next life. The rite leads to the peaceful transition of the deceased from one life to the next. Therefore, hiring an experienced Buddhist funeral director is critical. As a consequence, in Singapore, we are well-versed in managing Buddhist funerals. We’re not saying we’re fine. People tell us we are healthy, for instance. In Singapore, we are trusted by many. We make it simple for Buddhist funeral services.
In Singapore, Buddhist funeral rites and rituals mostly focus on the belief in reincarnation. This belief in karma and its influence on rebirth is also the subject of much of the Buddhist religion. Therefore, death marks the beginning of a fresh round of rebirth for a Buddhist, measured by both the nature and amount of karma accrued during a deceased’s lifetime. For the family, rather than giving a meaningful and dignified sendoff to the deceased loved one, the funeral helps to help him move on to his new life smoothly. The funeral will also act as a strong reminder of the fleeting existence of life for everyone present.
In addition, you might fail to find the right Buddhist monk to perform a funeral service for Buddhists. Care Funeral Services also allows you to find the best monk for the deceased. We also guide you through all the conventional teachings of Buddhism related procedures. We are only advising you on what is required. Our goal is to help you achieve cost savings. Just like any other family, we care about you.
Buddhists, therefore, generally assume that life and death are part of a cycle known as samsara. The death of a loved one needs a straightforward reality. And that life is sacred and has meaning. Though it is inevitable, such trials can occur during the lifetime of someone. We’re here ready to assist.
In other words, you can call us directly to ask if you want assistance in the planning and execution of a Buddhist funeral. Singapore Funeral Services offers comfort and guide for any Buddhist funeral procession. We make troubling times convenient for all, thus. We are a leading Buddhist funeral director who strives to achieve excellence in serving you.
Setting Before Death
For the sake of a dying loved one, a serene atmosphere should be preserved just before and during death. Better yet, through this dying process, a monk or representative of the Buddhist group to which the dying person belongs should be present to support him.
Intermediate States of Afterlife
Many Buddhists assume that before the deceased person is eventually reborn in another body, there are 3 intermediate afterlife states. Buddhist practise also calls for the body to stay undisturbed for around 4 hours after death and at least 3.5 days before cremation, following this belief in the stages of consciousness after death.
There is not one practise or service common to all, because there are several branches of Buddhism. That said, Chinese Buddhist funeral ceremonies typically last 49 days, the most important being the first 7 days. Before funeral arrangements are confirmed, the deceased family member’s Buddhist community should be consulted to ensure the correct rituals are performed.
Cremation or Burial
Traditionally, following the example of Buddha, Buddhists are cremated after death. However, this is not obligatory, as burials are still permitted. To lead the chanting, a monk should preferably be involved during the cremation or interment. This service is included in our kit for Buddhist funerals.
