Buddhist funeral services in Singapore are a solemn and meaningful way to pay tribute to a loved one who has passed away while adhering to the spiritual and cultural customs of Buddhism. These funerals are deeply rooted in Buddhist traditions, emphasizing respect for the deceased and the journey of their soul in the afterlife.
Buddhism teaches that life is transient and that death is a natural part of the human experience. Buddhist funeral services serve as an opportunity to express compassion, support, and respect for the departed soul. They provide comfort to grieving families while guiding the deceased towards a peaceful transition into the next life.
When attending a Buddhist funeral service, it is important to dress modestly and respectfully. Dark, subdued clothing is typically preferred. Visitors should also conduct themselves with solemnity and adhere to the customs and practices observed during the ceremony.
Buddhist funeral services emphasize the importance of offering condolences, support, and empathy to the grieving family. By showing kindness and compassion, attendees contribute to the healing process of those mourning the loss of a loved one.
Buddhist funeral ritual ceremonies are characterized by a series of rituals and customs designed to honor the deceased and facilitate their spiritual journey. These rituals often include:
During a Buddhist funeral service, monks or family members may chant Buddhist scriptures and offer prayers for the deceased. These chants are believed to guide the soul towards enlightenment and liberation from the cycle of rebirth.
Family members and attendees often engage in acts of merit-making, such as offering food, alms, or donations to monks and temples. These acts accumulate merit for the deceased, helping them on their spiritual journey.
Cremation is a common practice in Buddhist funeral rites. It symbolizes the impermanence of life and the release of the soul from the physical body. The ashes are typically collected and placed in a stupa or urn.
After the funeral, memorial services may be held on specific days, such as the seventh day and the 49th day after the passing, to continue offering prayers and support for the departed soul.

Buddhist funeral services in Singapore are held with simplicity and dignity. They take place in funeral homes, not temples, within a week of the loved one's passing. The ceremony includes an evening viewing, typically held in venues near the deceased's home or funeral parlors. In some cases, tentages are set up at HDB void decks, with bookings managed by the Singapore Government's Housing Board.
Chinese Buddhists allow the families to either bury or cremate the dead as per their family custom. Once the ceremonies get over(post funeral), the casket bearing the dead is taken to the burial site which is often on a hillside via a funeral procession service. In Singapore, land burial site is at Lim Chu Kang Cemetery. While the casket is being lowered into the ground, it is customary that the family looks away as a show of respect. During cremation, it is a traditional custom for the family to witness the cremation. In Singapore, regardless of land burial or cremation, post funeral rituals and chanting must be performed by a monk.
In Singapore, mourners can either send sympathy cards or white flowers to the family after learning of the death of their loved one. Chinese customs include giving condolence money to help ease the funeral spending of the affected family. However, anything red should be avoided. Gifts, donations, or food can also be sent as a show of respect and charity. During the funeral, it is expected to bring flowers to present to the family as a show of honor and respect. These should be placed near the altar. Mourners are also expected to join in the chanting and meditation that takes place during the funeral and should refrain from documenting the ceremony post funeral.
During the cremation ceremony which takes place on the morning of the burial/cremation, monks are invited as per Buddhist funeral traditions. They chant verses, Buddhist scriptures, eulogies and give sermons thereby aiding the family with the whole ceremony. Organ donation is not prohibited since it is seen as a way of helping others. However, the medical practitioner is expected to wait for at least three to four days before the autopsy since it is believed that the soul departs the body during this period. While embalming is a common custom for Buddhist Funeral in Singapore, mourners are advised to wear white as it symbolizes sympathy and grief.
Since the traditional Buddhist belief is that it takes 49 days before reincarnation of the deceased, prayers will be conducted by the same monk. Buddhist funeral rites are similar to that of Taoist funeral in Singapore, where in both religions, it is believed that after the 49th day, the deceased will reincarnate. The 49th day, Buddhist funeral prayer will be conducted by the monk with a series of chanting. Whereas, Taoist funeral customs are led by priests, a Taoist ritual, known as “Gong Teck” which consists of burning of paper house.
At a traditional Buddhist funeral, the family wears white or cover themselves using a white cloth. Mourners should wear simple, black or dark clothing. Wearing expensive or flashy clothing/jewelry is seen as a display of wealth and not in keeping with Buddhist funeral etiquette.
A Buddhist funeral package in Singapore typically includes services like venue setup, transportation, monks or priests for religious ceremonies, cremation or burial arrangements, floral decorations, catering, and administrative support. Customizable to individual preferences for funeral rites, and Buddhist traditions, our funeral service package offer a comprehensive solution to honor the deceased with Buddhist funeral service.
Buddhist funeral services offer various packages to honor the deceased. These packages encompass memorial services, cremations, and burials, with the choice depending on regional beliefs and customs. Typically, you can opt for either cremation or a Buddhist burial.
There are two main types of Buddhist ceremonies: cremation and burial. Cremations are common and usually held in a peaceful crematorium set amidst natural surroundings. Burials, reserved for specific cases, take place in Buddhist cemeteries, often in similar serene crematorium settings. Additionally, there are memorial services, services involving food and drink, and service of offerings, all frequently conducted at temples or Buddhist places of worship.
In Chinese culture, funerals are considered unlucky. So pregnant women are advised to avoid going to funeral-related activities. If you have to, wearing an auspicious red scarf around the belly is said to counter the negative energy from funerals.
There is no hard and fast rule as to whether a pregnant lady can attend a funeral or ceremony. It depends on how you feel, and it would be advisable to check in with the bereaving family and your own family (if you are attending as a guest) as this is seen as a taboo to some.
Yes, it is entirely up to the choice of families on the types of funeral services they wish to carry out for their deceased loved ones. Some families may opt for “direct cremation” or “direct burial”, where the body is sent for cremation or burial shortly after passing.
Families may conduct simple prayer services at home, or at the crematorium service hall, before the cremation. Some families may also choose to hold the memorial service after the cremation, i.e. the ashes are present at the memorial instead of the body.
