We visited Bayon Temple, Siem Reap. Cambodia. 😁 When you close your eyes, you can feel the peaceful energy move through you. When you open them, you are mezmorized by the skill, craftsmanship, and determination of the people that created this monument. They all have the same serene smile, with eyes closed, representing the all-knowing state of inner peace, and perhaps even a state of Nirvana….
Angkor Wat is obviously the must do when you go to Cambodia… ✌️You also can’t miss a blessing by a Buddhist monk.
Water blessings are a traditional Cambodian Buddhist practice that dates back to ancient times.
I remember the smoky denseness of the incense and candles, the heavy scent of the sandalwood and lotus blossoms as I sat with my heads bowed.
I remember the twinkle in the monk’s eye and I can still hear the deepness in his voice as he chanted blessings over me, then showered my head with water and lotus petals.
The offering of holy water symbolizes the cultivation of the virtues of calmness, clarity, and purity of our body, speech, and mind. This water symbol reminds us to cleanse ourselves of our attachments and generate generosity, compassion, and wisdom.
Feeling truly blessed right now!! The monk places a lucky string around my left wrist (Female, right wrist for Men)
The string serves a reminder to show compassion to others.
Thank you again, @wellapro_anz for this life changing and memorable experience.
