What is the limit of expenditure for a funeral? All these questions can simply be answered in this way: e funeral must be simple, with the least amount of fuss, but with dignity. Perhaps the most sensible thing to do would be for the immediate members of the family and close friends to have an informal discussion on the best way to conduct the funeral service in conformity with prevailing practice, with quiet dignity and without incurring unnecessary expense. If they are unable to attend to this themselves, then it is advisable that this be left to a reputable undertaker as he would understand all that is to be done and thus will take much trouble and responsibility off the relatives’ hands.

Children must learn from a young age that death is a natural part of existence. ey must learn not to be unnaturally afraid at the sight of coffins and corpses. ey must know what is the sensible thing to do at a funeral. If this is not done and when a death occurs, young adults will be at a loss and be at the mercy of unscrupulous religious people who either use this opportunity to convert them to their faith, or make them spend large sums of money on superstitious and other meaningless practices.
When viewing such funeral rites people of other faiths often wonder whether what they are watching is a procession celebrating some happy festival or a solemn funeral.

One would therefore gain the impression that the ceremony is designed more to make an outward show of affluence rather than to express genuine sorrow and respect for the deceased.
