Funeral Director in a Taoist Funeral
Given the above, the role of a funeral director becomes even more important. Other than just providing the arrangements, a funeral director, experienced in Taoist Funeral practices and customs will be able to provide advise and guidance to the family to ensure their love ones are properly honored with a meaningful and dignified funeral. Holyland Casket Singapore Pte Ltd funeral services team has more than 20 years of experience helping Singapore Taoist families with funeral services and arrangements. Our Funeral Consultants are familiar with both Taoist Rites and customs and can be counted upon to provide the right advise whenever needed. Above all, our staff are well trained, understand the family’s grief and are always sensitive to the needs of all family members. That’s the reason why many Taoist families in Singapore trust us when it comes to funeral services.
Overview of Taoist Funeral Rites
In a traditional Taoist Funeral, an alter is set up with a sacred lamp, symbolising the Elixir of Immortality, 2 large candles, cups filled with tea, water and rice plus 5 plates of fruits to represent the 5 elements. An incense burner right in the middle completes the set up of the alter.
Because there are many different denominations within Taoism, rites and rituals for the deceased can differ. However some common rites performed during Taoist Funerals include those for:
- Gaining merits for the deceased;
- Protecting the deceased body from demons and monsters;
- Separating the dead from the living; and
- Blessings and protection for the family
These days, Taoist Funerals are typically held for 3, 5 or 7 days.
