A Taoist funeral service in Singapore usually places focus on the prayer ritual conducted by Taoist priests of the dialect group of your family. Different dialects have their own practices and rituals to conduct during a funeral, and as such these Taoist funeral rites are specific to the dialect group (e.g. Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese etc). While the rituals differ from each other, the fundamental meaning behind these actions and prayers are the same: to ensure a safe travel as well as a comfortable afterlife for the deceased. It is also seen as a final act as filial piety for the children of the deceased.

Our Taoist funeral package includes the various fundamental services like other funeral package as well as the fundamental Taoist rites by the priests of any dialect group in Singapore. It also includes a paper house which will be burned and sent to our loved one at the end of the Taoist ritual. You may contact us anytime so that we may advise you and help budget the funeral expenses for your dialect group.

Note that as size of families and number of visitors in a funeral vary greatly, items such as fridge and drinks, mobile toilet, incense and joss paper are provided where needed. These items are not included in the price of the funeral packages. We charge the consumption of items during the funeral by quantity used rather than in bulk so as to prevent oversupplying and wastage of resources.
