Funeral Day

Cleansing

It is believed that death is pollution and putrefying as it causes a disjunction, violating the order of normalcy. The family of the deceased is considered to harbour a danger and “bad luck”. The inheritance of pollution can be mitigated with a cleansing process, often involving water scented with pomegranate flowers. This “cleansing water” (净水) cleanses, purifies and eliminates the pollution arising from the onset of death.

We provide special setups for the bereaved family and guests for cleansing right after cremation.
