Why Choose Our Buddhist Funeral Package?
Buddhist believe in Karma and its effects on reincarnation. And a Buddhist funeral, with chanting led by monks, held in accordance with Buddhist funeral rites, can help the deceased transition more smoothly into his next life. Hence to Buddhist families, having a proper funeral sendoff goes beyond just a show of filial piety; it's the final meaningful act of love the bereaved family can shower upon the deceased, to aid him in this afterlife journey.
Unfortunately, because funeral rites and customs are seldom discussed within Chinese families, most are not familiar with it. Thus having a Singapore Funeral Director, experienced in Buddhist funeral rites as well as Chinese funeral customs and traditions is important. We have more than 20 years of experience helping Buddhist families in Singapore with such funeral arrangements. Indeed when it comes to funeral planning and arrangements, few can boast to be as good as we are. But don't just take your word for it; check out the many testimonials that we have received from our happy clients. Many feel we are professional, caring, patient and above all knowledgeable in the area of funeral planning.
