Water Blessing at Angkor Wat

Water Blessing at Angkor Wat

Water blessings are a traditional Cambodian Buddhist practice that dates back to ancient times. 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. I stumbled across these pilgrims receiving a blessing from a monk at a temple near Angkor Wat. It was a beautiful experience to witness this Buddhist blessing as well as to photograph.
