Buddhist Funeral Rites

What is a Buddhist Funeral?

 Buddhists believe that once a person has moved on from this world, their souls go through reincarnation. This is the common belief that many Buddhists share, even if they may incorporate aspects of other religions into their funeral rites or service. On the other hand, there are Chinese Buddhist families that may choose to adhere strictly to traditional Buddhist funeral procedures.

Generally, a Buddhist funeral is a ceremony that is held at the family’s home or a funeral parlour. A monk will usually be present to act as the officiant of the funeral. An experienced funeral director will usually be present at the ceremony, followed by chanting and prayers by the monk. Meditations, eulogies, and sermons can also be included in the ceremony depending on the Chinese family’s preferences.
