Soka Funerals in Singapore
We are the experts who arrange and host Soka funeral services in Singapore. All people hold a semblance of Buddhahood, according to the Soka Association ‘s beliefs, and there is no need for a priest or cleric to be present in the Soka faith. A common misunderstanding of Soka is that it is a type of Buddhism that is condensed. Soka, however, is primarily a Japanese Buddhist religion based on the teaching of Nichiren, a 13th-century Japanese priest.
Supporting You With The Preparations
In different countries across the globe, there are several Soka organisations. We work closely with the Singapore Soka Association in Singapore, which is part of an international group of Soka-affiliated organizations which are part of the international Soka Gakkai movement.
Our Soka funeral services are in line with the Nichiren Buddhism concept. The central aim is to cultivate and convey sympathy for the deceased. Compared to traditional and traditional Buddhist funerals, a Soka funeral set up is comparatively more straightforward. A Soka Gakkai chief, instead of a Buddhist monk, is the one who performs the funeral service by leading Sutra recitations and Daimoku chanting. Such prayers help propel the dead to the height of enlightenment of Soka, the Eagle Peak.
The traditional Japanese Buddhist funeral ceremony, rid of many of its excessively formalised and complicated rituals and practises, is often seen as a simpler, modernised version of Soka Funeral Services. Many members of Soka Gakkai think that Buddhist teachings focus on how to live and how to achieve enlightenment, rather than on rich, elaborate and frequently formalised practises and rituals.
Soka funeral services are carried out by a Soka Gakkai chief rather than a Buddhist priest, unlike other Buddhist funerals. This member presides over the recital and chanting of the Sutra. Soka practitioners believe that having a leader conduct the funeral with the Sutra ‘s entire heart and heartfelt chanting is more profound and heart rendering than just rituals performed by a priest. Members of Soka Gakkai often claim that it is not ceremonies or priest sermons that will assist the deceased member to attain enlightenment, but rather the leader and members during the service, the genuine and steadfast recital of the Sutra and chanting of the Daimoku.
In the funeral ceremony and on memorial tablets, the secular name of the deceased member is used as members of Soka Gakkai do not practise giving posthumous Buddhist names to kaimyo.
Settings of a Soka Funeral
In all, the Soka Funeral’s modernised, minimalist feeling is very much in line with the firm of Soka members believing that achieving enlightenment is very much the product of their faith and practice, the Buddhist way, rather than by funeral rites, giving posthumous Buddhist names or sermons given by the Buddhist priest and intercession.
Role of a Funeral Director
Prior to 1991, within the Nichiren Shōshū branch of Buddhism, the Soka Gakkai was still deemed a lay Buddhist movement; it is thus a relatively recent religious movement. In addition, teachings centred more on guiding practitioners to maximise their full potential in life, to live a worthy life and to be a helpful contributing member of society, with Soka (meaning Value Development in Chinese), funerals and death being less of an emphasis than living the present life well. Therefore, on new media outlets, such as the Internet, not much is written about Soka funeral ceremonies.
