Since its establishment in 2009, Nirvana Singapore has provided its dearly departed customers with high-quality columbarium niches and a conducive and pleasant environment for individuals to respect their ancestors. The funeral service team at Nirvana Singapore is also well-versed in handling funeral services in the country, thus making the send-off of deceased individuals dignified and respected.
In this article, we’ll learn more about the two aspects of Nirvana’s services – funeral services and columbarium.
The Concept of Nirvana in Buddhism Perspectives of Afterlife
The word Nirvana is also closely related to the Buddhism concept of the afterlife. It is believed that once an individual passes away, their soul leaves the body on a journey toward rebirth. This cycle of life, death, and rebirth is known as samsara. Therefore, in Buddhism, death is the beginning of a new life. It is believed that an individual has to live through countless life cycles to reach Nirvana – the state of enlightenment. Therefore, attaining Nirvana is the highest form of enlightenment from a Buddhist’s perspective.
By understanding the concept of samsara, the objectives of a funeral practice are – to give the deceased a dignified farewell and to comfort the bereaved families during this challenging moment.
Comforting Peace for the Bereaved Families
Nirvana Singapore is part of NV Multi Asia. In 2012, during the Asian Funeral Exhibition (AFE), NV Multi Asia won accolades such as “Outstanding Brand of Asian Funeral Service Industry” and also “The Outstanding Award for Multi-Asian Expansion .” Such recognition puts the Nirvana brand on the world map as a high-end quality columbarium and a quality funeral service provider in Asia. In 2016, Nirvana Singapore was awarded with Largest Bereavement Company in Singapore Book of Records.
As mentioned earlier in the article, the key goals of any funeral service provider are to make sure that the departed is given a dignified send-off and also, at the same time, to bring comforting peace to the bereaved families.
Here are some of the reasons why Nirvana Singapore is one of the best choices when it comes to funeral services.
#1 – Industry Knowledge
As a funeral services provider, it is essential to have in-depth knowledge of the various types of funeral customs and rituals in Singapore. It is not just a criterion for the funeral director to have in-depth knowledge but also for the entire funeral service team. In this way, the funeral customs will be solemnly meaningful and will not simply be just like any event. With a clear understanding of the practices, the staff can also help to explain more to the bereaved families. Thus, giving them peace and comfort with the knowledge that the funeral is well taken of.
#2 – Experience
Besides theoretical knowledge, it is crucial to have hands-on experience. So that in this way, the funeral services team can carry out the funeral smoothly with zero error. Newer staff will usually be tagged with senior staff so that they can learn as they work. However, for technical aspects of funeral work such as embalming, it is essential to engage highly experienced and qualified embalmers. We want to ensure the dearly departed will look the best and at peace during the funeral.
#3 – Service
At the time of grief, it is quintessential to have someone to listen to or care for one’s needs. The funeral service team at Nirvana Singapore is highly trained in providing excellent services and backend support for bereaved families.
#4 – Communications
The bereaved family member may need to do several things to get the funeral in operation. For example, they need to get approval from the town council to arrange a funeral event at the HDB void deck or event hall; they need to organise the catering, the priests for the ceremony, booking the columbarium niche, and many other miscellaneous works. Hence, having an experienced funeral services team around is highly beneficial, for they can provide guidance and help for the bereaved family members.
#5 – After-Funeral Services
An excellent funeral service provider doesn’t stop when the funeral is over or when the ashes are collected and placed in a columbarium. They will do more than that. It is vital to share the knowledge of the afterlife ritual with the bereaved family member, so they know what to do after the funeral.
For example, in Buddhist practices, the soul leaves the body after death and continues a 49-days journey toward rebirth or reincarnation. Hence, conducting An-Ling prayer sessions for the deceased on the 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, 35th, 42nd, and 49th day after death is paramount. These prayer sessions will ensure the protection and safeguard of the soul on the journey to rebirth.
In other words, good after-funeral services help to peace for the deceased and comfort for the bereaved families.
A Peaceful Resting Place for the Dearly Departed
Besides providing high-quality funeral services, Nirvana Memorial Garden also provides state-of-the-art high-end columbarium services for the dearly departed. Its good feng shui location, quality interior architecture, and modern facilities thus offer a peaceful final resting place for the departed individuals.
Conducive Environment for Ancestor Worshippers
The columbarium is also surrounded by a picturesque garden landscape, making its ambience gentle and pleasant. The columbarium is also fully airconditioned with spacious suites and quality furnishings. Therefore, it provides a conducive environment and a comfortable place for people to pay respect to their ancestors.
Serving Customers with Respect and Dignity
To add value to the visitors’ experience, the customer service team at Nirvana Singapore is always available to provide excellent service for them. To summarise, one can find peace and comfort with Nirvana, especially during grief. Its highly experienced funeral services team will ensure that the funeral is professionally carried out so that we can give a proper and dignified send-off for the dearly departed. At the same time, the conducive environment and the service Nirvana columbarium provides will ensure a peaceful final resting place for the deceased and a better quality visiting experience for the worshippers.
