Photographer's Note

Wat Damnak

We had half a day time before leaving Phnom Penh. No idea what to do we are strolling outside the touristic path through Siem Reap. We found this beautiful Wat. On the webside we found only a note about a historical information: "coming soon ...". But on the main page there are some interesting sentence I would like to share with you:

"Do not accept anything simply because it had been said by your teachers"
"Do not accept anything simply because it had been taught and written in your sacred books (religious texts)"
"Do not accept anything simply because it had been believed by many"
"Do not accept anything simply because it had been handed down by your ancestors"
"Do not accept anything simply because it seems acceptable or possible etc"
"Believe and accept only according to what will enable you to see truth face to face, self-confidence and when you know for yourselves that certain things are wholesome, good, to be moral, be conductive to well-being and true happiness, or leading to true happiness etc" The Buddha said.
"Do not be a slave of Religion!"
"Man is not for Religion, but religion is for man!"
"See Other as Yourself"
"Make a world smile because of your presence"
"May all be happy, peaceful and friendly"
