For a Dignified FUneral

Buddhist Customs

According to Buddhist beliefs, the body is first bathed and clothed to prepare the body for the funeral, which is meant to be simple, dignified and a solemn expression of bereavement.

Buddhist funerals are held accordingly to Buddhist funeral rites with chanting to assist the deceased in transitioning into the next life smoothly. Having a proper funeral send-off and performing funeral activities is a final meaningful act of love and also a way for the bereaved family to cherish a peaceful closure and aid the deceased in their afterlife journey. This serves as a good reminder to all in present, of life’s transient nature.
