What to expect for a Buddhist Funeral Service in Singapore
Buddhists believe that the reincarnation of the soul takes place after death. This forms the foundation of most Buddhist funeral traditions, and there are rituals and prayers that are regular features in Buddhist funerals.
Although souls are believed to be reincarnated in Buddhism, it is still a sorrowful experience for the family. We understand the importance of post-funeral care and we can assist the family to hold memorial services on the 3rd, 7th, 49th, and 100th days to pay their respects.
According to Buddhist funeral tradition, the departed can be laid to rest by burial or cremation. Burials can be carried out at Choa Chu Kang Cemetery. However, due to the shortage of space in Singapore’s cemeteries, graves will be exhumed after 15 years. For cremation, monks may be present at the crematorium to lead the chanting.
