Supporting You With The Preparations
In Taoist practise, there is some form of influence of Buddhism and funeral services are aware of the Taoist practises regarding funerals. There is essentially a funeral director who plays a key role in the funeral service of the Taoists. He not only offers management services, but also has expertise in the practise of Singapore Taoist funeral services, which is why he offers family members with advice and guidance to ensure the smooth process of the funeral. To manage all of the funeral arrangements needed for a Taoist funeral, you can employ our Taoist Funeral Services. We have advisors who are familiar with the rituals and Chinese funeral traditions and you can count on them whenever appropriate to get the right advice. To find out more, talk to us.

The custom of Taoist funeral services is also to rinse the body using a moist towel and talcum powder to do so. After that, the dead man gets clothed in the finest linen. The fabric can vary in colour, but they do not explicitly use red colour. As a Taoist funeral service owner, after the burial process, we also arrange the funeral feast. In what we do, we are fine.
Traditionally, Taoists claim that they focus more on wellbeing and survival than on the afterlife. The aim was to attain immortality, with the practise and cultivation of various tasks categorised as Neidan and Waidan, particularly in early Taoism. There is little documented about Taoist funerals, even on the internet, combined with the fact that Chinese usually avoid talking about death. Therefore, with each passing generation, there is a pattern of Taoist funerals becoming more streamlined, with old, lost or sometimes forgotten rituals.
Taoism co-existed with Buddhism and Confucianism for much of Chinese history, to add to the mystery. Therefore, in the Taoist tradition of some Singaporean families, there is some influence from Buddhism. Examples of these involve making monks and Taoist priests conduct rituals during a Taoist funeral wake for the deceased. The above often leads to Taoist families losing what to do if a family member is beset by death.
The Role of a Funeral Director
The position of a funeral director becomes even more important, given the above. A funeral director, knowledgeable in Taoist funeral traditions and rituals, rather than only making the arrangements, will be able to provide the family with advice and encouragement to ensure that their loved ones are properly remembered with a respectful and dignified funeral. We have over 20 years of experience helping with funeral services and arrangements for Singapore Taoist families. Our funeral advisors are familiar with both Taoist rituals and Chinese funeral practises and can be relied on whenever appropriate to provide the correct advice. Above all, our workers are well educated, understand the sorrow of the family and are always attentive to the needs of all members of the family. That is why, when it comes to funeral services, many Taoist families in Singapore trust us.
Overview of Taoist Rites
An alter is set up with a holy lamp in a typical Taoist funeral, signifying the Elixir of Immortality with candles, cups filled with tea, water and rice, plus 5 plates of fruit to represent the five elements. The alter set-up is completed by an incense burner right in the centre. Within Taoism, since there are several different religions, rites and rituals may vary for the deceased. Some traditional rites performed during Taoist funerals, however, include those for obtaining merit for the deceased; protecting the body of the deceased from demons and monsters; separating the dead from the living; and giving the family blessings and protection. Usually, these days, Taoist funerals last 3, 5 or 7 days.
