The Cambodian Buddhist Temple of Dallas

Founded in 1985.

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.

Bonn Meak Bochea will be held on Saturday Evening Feb. 8 @ 5 P.M. and Sunday morning Feb. 9. @ 9 A.M.
Bonn Meak Bochea (Magha Puja Day)
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.

Time to update our logo. Proud to represent both Traditional Cambodian Dance and Ancient Cambodian Martial Arts here in Dallas, TX.

🚨temple parking lot FUNDRAISER🚨
As you know, the current parking areas gets super muddy when it rains, making it difficult to drive on. We are raising money for this specific project in order to give you a better surface to park on. Most donations the temple receives goes into the temple's general maintenance (bills and things of that sort) so inorder to take on a big project like this, we have to do a separate fundraiser. It will cost about $35k-$40k per 60ftx200ft for an asphalt covering. Even if we do not meet this goal that night, we want to start getting some money in so that we can start paving little by little. So please come out for some fun. There will be a live band, social dancing, and food vendors. The next day will be our annual Bonn Pka Prak (money tree blessing ceremony)

Summer 2019 projects continuation:
1) our cultural troupe's studio getting ready for concrete assembly
2) lovely garden team doing their weekly beatification of the flowers and plants
3) new outside patio kitchen that's connected to the inside extended kitchen ready for use
4) making mold for the big naga head so that we can duplicate more

Selepak Khmer Angkor

There are actually different types of ancient Cambodian martial arts, or in Khmer (ក្បាច់គុនបុរាណខ្មែរ), including Bokator, Yuthakun Khom, Baok Chambab, and more. Like many things that involved our culture, this combat sport was almost lost during the Cambodian Genocide in the late 1970's. Most survivors were traumatized by the Khmer Rouge tactics, and had no interest in bringing it back due to fear. However, there has been a growing interest within the sport in the past decade, and now people from all over the world are helping to revive the art form back to life. 🇰🇭
