    Donating coffin to the dead is considered one of the greatest merits in Theravada Buddhism.

    This family living in poverty could not afford to purchase a coffin for their deceased family member, and the deceased can only be placed in the Mortuary Body Refrigerator rented from the hospital.

    帮助善心人士把捐款交給窮苦的家庭, 加上自己的一分餘力, 幫助他们已去世的家人買棺材, 辦喪事, 何樂而不為
    Helping a kind devotee to pass his donation to a family living in poverty. I also added my share of contribution, to help them purchase a coffin and to hold a proper funeral for the decease family member. I was more than happy to do this.



    Today I have helped a devotee to arrange for his donation to be passed directly to an underprivileged family in a rural area in Lampang, Thailand, to purchase a coffin for a 35 year old man who has died in a tragic car accident.

    The money will go into the purchase of a proper coffin, conducting a decent funeral and setting up a grave for the deceased. We would like to thank the kind and generous devotee for his great compassion in helping the less fortunate.

    [​IMG]


    The monk has also conducted a ritual for both the donor and the deceased. The ritual serves to inform the deceased of the kindness of the donor and to bless the donor for his kind deed. Your kind deed has given the deceased human dignity and also peace of mind for the family living in poverty. Our gratitude towards your kind deed is beyond words can express.

    [​IMG]

    The donation will also go into finding a resting place for the deceased and for a proper funeral to be conducted to give the deceased a sense of dignity that will bring emotional comfort and solace for the family.

    [​IMG]

    The idea of donating coffin is to provide the deceased with a decent final resting ground. From a Taoist point of view there will be less homeless, wandering and distressed spirits.

    Many people in Thailand and other Asia countries are too poor to provide a proper burial for their dead loved ones and they will seek help from the temples. As times go by, the practice of coffin donation by devotees to help the poor becomes a norm and a way for Buddhists to gain merits, and gain good karma. To them coffin donation is for good luck and to reduce the impact of negative karma, and is one of the quickest and most effective ways to change one's destiny for the better.

    The pursuit of merit is the Buddhist way to develop a wise sense of self. Merit then sets out in general terms the types of meritorious activities that conduce to the happiness, focusing primarily on three: giving, virtue and meditation .The happiness of generosity can be maximized by wisely choosing the proper motivation for giving.

    In the course of developing a wise sense of self in the pursuit of merit, one already is learning how to let go of unwise ways of "selfing" as one learns how to overcome stinginess, apathy and hard-heartedness through the development of giving, virtue and goodwill.

    [​IMG]

    It is well-known to people in Hong Kong that the entertainment mogul and philanthropist Shaw Run Run, who was one of the most influential figures in the Asian entertainment industry, has also donated many coffins throughout his entire life. He lived to an old age of 106, and his success in both commercial and humanitarian causes is something that need no more elaboration.

    In Chinese character, coffin is actually written as 棺材, which shares the same pronunciation as 官財 in the idiom 升官發財, which means to be promoted and prospered. The act of donating a coffin 棺材, carries a very auspicious meaning and implication for 官財 (promotion and prosperity) to return to you.

    Morgue in the hospital where human corpses are being stored. From the office here, families living in poverty will be able to register and request for kind donors who could contribute and help them to purchase a coffin for their deceased family member.

    [​IMG]

    Through referral from the hospital, another family living in poverty is found. When I arrived at their house, they have tried to decorate the Body Refrigerator, getting it ready to house their deceased family member.

    The monk was also present and has also blessed Mr Lim for his good deed. The merit was made to help this family to purchase a coffin for their decease family member, to conduct a proper funeral and set up a grave for the deceased. On behalf of the family, I would like to thank Mr Lim for his kindness and generosity. May you and your family be blessed!

    The joy of giving is something that cannot be put into words, and could only be realized through action. Thank you Mr Hee for bringing a smile onto the face of a grieving family member, who was not able to purchase a decent coffin and set up a proper funeral and grave for her deceased loved one.

    The entire process was updated to Mr Hee with photos and videos in real time.

    [​IMG]

    The monk who volunteered in helping this family was also informed of Mr Hee's kind act, and would pray and bless Mr Hee. May good Karma and fortune return to you. On behalf of the family I would like to express my deepest thanks towards your kindness and generosity.

    The day was spent helping another kind and compassionate devotee to pass his donation directly to an underprivileged family who cannot afford to purchase a coffin and conduct a proper funeral and burial for their deceased beloved family member. A senior monk was invited to conduct a ritual to bless the devotee for his kind deed so that good Karma will come into his life.

    The deceased for now can only have a body refrigerator as his final resting place. But with the kind devotee's donation, the family living in poverty and under much emotional distress will be able to have a peace of mind and emotional closure knowing that their deceased loved one will soon have a proper and dignified final resting place.

    The entire process will be updated to you in real time with photos and videos. If you wish to help underprivileged families who cannot afford to purchase a coffin, arrange a funeral and burial for their deceased loved one, please feel free to contact the following:

    Ccoffin donation has been carried for another family living in poverty with deceased member. Money would be passed directly to the underprivileged family. The family has conveyed their thanks to the donor and monks who volunteered to conduct the funeral have been informed.

The deceased family member, who passed away due to a food poisoning, was in the room, but out of respect, no photo was taken.

    During the Wan Khao Phansa – Buddhist Lent Day, is a very auspicious time to cultivate good merit. A kind devotee has carried out the highly virtuous and compassionate deed of helping a family living in poverty to purchase a coffin and arrange for funeral and burial for their deceased family member.

    Many people living in Thailand cannot afford to give their deceased loved ones a proper and dignified way to be buried, and often it's a regret that brought much emotional pains for the family. As could be seen in the picture, the deceased family member could only be placed in a body refrigerator.

    May this kind devotee and her family be blessed for this merciful act, and may the deceased rest in peace. Thank you very much for the kind support.

    From now on, donation drive for purchasing a coffin, conducting a funeral and burial for deceased members from underprivileged families will be opened to any amount of donation.

    In otherwise, you may donate any amount you wish, and the amount collected will be documented and recorded down onto this thread. Once the balance of donation reaches the amount needed for the family to purchase a coffin, conducting a funeral and burial for their deceased members, the funds will be handed over to them (Approximately 500sgd, depending on other needs of the family involved).

    All amount collected and handed over will be properly documented to keep everything accountable.

    Thank you very much for your kind support!
