We wanted to send a reminder that our KNY celebration is coming up in two weeks on the weekend of April 16-18. All visitors are expected to wear a mask except when eating or may be briefly taken off when taking photos. Please also maintain recommended social distancing. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them in the comments below. We have provided a flyer in Khmer and English. Due to Covid-19, there may be changes in the events that are planned for each day. There are indeed food/merchandise vendors and live music for our guests. Let's cooperate and make this celebration safe for our resident monks, nuns, elderly members, and all other attendees.

The Cambodian Buddhist Temple of Dallas anticipates being open the weekend of April 16, 17, & 18, 2021 for Khmer New Year. On these three days, the public can come in for merit making, alms-giving, and blessings. This was a short-noticed decision so we are still trying to get vendors and live entertainment for our visitors, if possible. We HIGHLY recommend all guests to continue wearing masks on our premises and to continue social distancing. We will be notifying of any updates or changes on our page. We've provided a flyer in Khmer in the comment section.

Donations are still being accepted in-person or by U.S. mail:
To send checks, please make payable to The Cambodian Buddhist Temple of Dallas and send them to 5701 Crystal Lake Blvd. Dallas, TX 75236

Thanks for your continued support.

🕯️Today is Meak Bochea (Māgha Pūjā)
This Buddhist holiday commemorates the last sermon given by Buddha in which he spoke about the "heart of Buddhism" in three principles: ceasing from all evil, doing only what is good, and cleansing the mind.
The group that assembled that day to hear the sermon are sometimes called the “Fourfold Assembly” because of four factors that were in place:
•the 1,250 listeners were all “enlightened ones” •they were all ordained by Buddha himself
•according to the tradition, they came without being summoned
•it was a full moon in the month of Magha

Hello, hope all is well. The Pchum Ben weekend will be on September 19-20, 2020. Due to COVID, only the Buddhist ceremonies will still occur. We also have received questions on how donations to the temple are being accepted since our major festivals have been cancelled. Please refer to the bottom of the photo to see how you can contribute. The temple relies on donations to help pay bills, utilities, and maintenance for the year. With the cancellation of our major events, we haven't been raising as much money as we use to. However, we want to thank those who have been supporting us through these past months and we really appreciate the help. If you decide to join us for the ceremonies during Pchum Ben weekend, we want to remind everyone to please practice social distancing, safe hygiene, and wear a mask. Ceremony for both days begins at 9:00 A.M.
Thank you,
CBTofDallas Committee

Today is Vesak Day.
•Visākha Pūjā (Vesak Bochea)•
It is one of the most important days in Buddhism. On this day the Buddha was born, and 35 years later, achieved enlightenment and in another 45 years, passed away into total nibbana.

សួស្តីឆ្នាំថ្មី! HAPPY KHMER NEW YEAR. The Year of the Rat.
Although we aren't celebrating together, we still want to wish everyone happiness, prosperity, and most of all, good health in the new year.
The 2020 New Year angel is Koreak Tevy and she arrives from the heavens to Earth on Monday April 13 at 8:48 P.M. Cambodia time. Koreak Tevy wears an aromatic flower Ankeabos tucked behind her ear and pearls around her neck. She drinks oil and carries a sword in her right hand and a cane in her left. Koreak Tevy rides a tiger.*

*The animal that the New Year angel rides does not represent the zodiac animal. These are two different entities.

This Buddhist holiday commemorates the last sermon given by Buddha in which he spoke about the "heart of Buddhism" in three principles: ceasing from all evil, doing only what is good, and cleansing the mind. The Buddha also declared that he would pass away in three months, so some believe that the Buddha might have used this event to make this announcement.
