The joy of learning, the blessing of Yorn Chea.
I met this beautiful boy and his friends when I was in Siem Reap, Cambodia. They are learning English at Yorn Chea's free school. Yorn and I are Facebook friends now and I try to stay connected to the work he is doing to help his village sustain itself and this next generation of Cambodia overcome grief, illiteracy and poverty.
It is the Khmer New Year now and in celebration, Yorn sent me a blessing. I share his words, verbatim, with you.
In this new year May you right understanding, right thought, right speech, right action, right concentration, right livelihood, right effort and right mindfulness.
May you free from all of evil deeds, cultivate only good deed for your mind and then purify your own mind.
Value of people are :feel pity & compassion, find joy in another’s happiness, be sincere.
New year may you success what you are doing or you are going to do or aim to do , all enemies who aim to make trouble with you, may they dying away.
Good luck, good health, long life, strong energy , happiness, and peace of mind, may all these happen to your family, your parents, your wife and all of the who are around you .
New year, new success, new happiness and new prosperousness for you .
Happy New Year .
Your Best Reguard
Please "friend" Yorn Chea on Facebook too. Find out how little it takes for you to help make a big difference for the future of Cambodia.
