However, buddhists consider burial ceremonies as important occasions. Funerals reconfirm the Buddhist teachings that nothing is permanent and that rebirth follows death. A Buddhist funeral takes place in a temple or a funeral hall. Priests, with the sound of bells, gongs, and wooden blocks recite prayers over the bier or coffin. Mourners then burn incense before the body. After twenty-four hours, the body is taken to be cremated or buried. Most Buddhist families build a family altar in their home and have an ancestral tablet along with other sacred objects on it, and the picture and name of the deceased.
