What's the difference between a Buddhist & Taoist Funeral?

September 21, 2017

 A Buddhist funeral consists of rites performed by monks, while a Taoist funeral consists of rites performed by a Taoist Priest. Each dialect group needs a priest specific to them; for instance the Hokkien people use a SaiGong while the Teochew people use a Gengshi.
