    Cambodian Buddhism seen from India Nepal:

    In Nepal, around Buddha birth place (Lumbini) and Katmandu (Nepal capital) where Buddhism has been revered, Hindu’s sentiment toward Buddha is similar to Indian’s. Nepaleses said Buddha was from Hindu family, thus was their son. They have nothing to hate their son’s fame or teaching.

    Having witnessed two countries benefiting from revering Buddhism and Brahmanism/ Hinduism, I keep questioning reason to hate one religion over the other in Cambodia. As a note, Cambodia has had both Brahmanism and Buddhism along with Kruism.

    Cambodian Buddhism seen from India:

    Cambodians have been brainwashed over and over for centuries to deny Brahmanism/ Hinduism. I keep hearing from Cambodian Buddhist monks that Brahmanism/ Hinduism is bad and is against Buddhism.

    In India, around Buddha enlightenment place (Buddhagaya) and death place (Kusinara), Indian Hindus I spoke to had nothing against Buddha and Buddhism. Buddha has been a respectable personality for them. Given the fact that Buddhist tourists flock their towns and showered them with cash, they don’t hate Buddhism.

    Buddha had never hated any other doctrine as well disciples of him would not do so but he simply pointed out their failures and nobody was able to win this “battel” of truth. All other doctrines have something which one needs to believe and unreasonable inside.

    The different between Buddha Dharma and Hinduism is very simple. There is no such thing as “I” “soul” “personality” or “being” with is the fundamental root cause of all suffering. To believe in an “I” “soul”… is simply wrong view and therefore moha delustion and never compatible with Buddha Dhamma. In hinduism there is an understanding of cause and effect but no idea of escaping form the circle of suffering, so it is an endless circle and founded on the idea of a omniscient soul. Here a good explaining form Ven. Chanmyay Sayadaw to understand the difference between Brahmanism and Buddhism:

    Attá in Brahmanism

    We should understand the concepts of sakkaya-ditthi and atta-ditthi from the point of view of Hinduism.
    According to Hinduism or Brahmanism, the whole world was created by Maha-Brahma. This Mahabrahmahas many names such as, Isvara, Paramatmaand Prajapati. ‘Pati’ means creator or master. Prajameans creatures or living beings. So he is the master of living beings because he created them.

    Paramatma is a Sanskrit or Hindu term. In Pali it is Paramatta. When we divide this Paramatma into two words, it is Parama and atma. Here parama means the noblest, the holiest; ‘atma’ means soul or self. So Paramatma means the holiest soul. Some translate this word as the big self or big soul. This soul is big enough to create the world and living beings. When the condition of the world was good enough for living beings to live in, he created all living beings- men, decas, Brahmas, and animals. He even created tigers, lions and poisonous snakes, which are a great danger to man. When Maha-Brahma or Paramatma first created living beings, they were like corpses; they could not move, sit or stand. Then Maha-Brahma wanted to make these creatures come to life. So he put a soul into each creature or living being. Then all the creatures got up and moved stood, sat and so on. In this way, that small soul or self existed in every living being according to Brahmanism. Even an insect has a small soul in it.

    That soul is called Jiva-atta. It is everlasting and indestructible and cannot he destroyed by any means, even an atomic bomb, because it is supported by Maha-Brahma or Prajapati. But when this body is about to disintegrate, that soul knows that the body is about to disintegrate – so it has to be prepared to leave that body and reincarnate into another body. It has to take existence either in a lower or higher world, depending on its kamma in this life. If that soul performs meritorious deeds in this life, these meritorious deeds are good kamma so they lead the soul to a higher level of existence. When the soul reincarnates into another body, we call it reincarnation. But that everlasting soul, jiva-atta or self cannot be destroyed in the next existence either. So the cycle of reincarnation continues.. This is what Brahmanism believes about soul. In short, according to Brahmanism, there is an everlasting entity in us, the so-called self, soul or ego.
    That belief or concept of an everlasting entity, soul, self or ego, known as Atta-ditthi, is due to the non-realization of the true nature of the natural processes.

    Attá in Buddhism

    We are not Hindus but we have the concept of a soul, though the concept is not so strong because we follow the doctrine of the Buddha. We understand theoretically that there is no soul or self or that there is no everlasting entity, yet we believe that when a person dies, the soul comes out of the body and stays near his house or his corpse or his coffin. It Is a common belief that if we do not make offerings to the monks (Bhikkhu ) and have not shared our meritorious deeds with the departed ones, the soul has to live around us.

    Though we believe the doctrine of the Buddha, we still have this concept of atta-ditthi, and based on this concept we have another concept of personality, individuality, a being, a man or a woman -sakkaya-ditthi (sakkaya here means nama and rupa, ditthi means wrong or false view). We have this concept because we do not comprehend the specific and common characteristics of the mind-body processes; we take them to be everlasting.

    If you ask yourself, “Will I die tomorrow?” – you dare not answer the question. If I say you are going to die tomorrow, you will get angry with me because you have the idea of permanency of mental and physical processes. You think your mind-body processes are permanent; at least until tomorrow. Yes, that is the idea of permanency. You hold it because you have not realized the appearance and disappearance of the process of mental and physical phenomena. If you see the constant, instant appearance and disappearance of mental and physical phenomena, you will not believe them to be permanent.

    Theoretically you understand that none of the mental and physical processes last even a second according to the doctrine of the Lord Buddha, but practically you do not believe it because you have not realized their impermanent nature. Only if you have personal experience of the Dhamma, do you conclude that it is impermanent. You can then accept, “I may not even live until tomorrow. I may die this very second because every phenomena is subject to impermanence Actually, when a man has not realized the arising and passing away of mental arid physical phenomena, he takes them to be permanent. The idea of personality is based on the belief in a permanent entity within us. So atta-ditthi and sakkaya-ditthi are the same.

    If we say, “Now I am lifting my hand”, then you ask me who is lifting the hand. I will say, “I am lifting the hand.” Who is that ‘I’? A Bhikkhu, a man, or a being who is living? If we do not believe in the permanent nature of mind-body processes, we do not take them to be a being. But actually, the dual process of mentality and physicality, which constitutes a so-called person, is subject to change, arising and passing away but we do not realize it. We take this dual process to be a person, a being, a dog or an animal. This view is called sakkaya-ditthi. Unless we can rightly comprehend these mind and body processes in their true nature we are unable to overcome or destroy this false view.

    That is why the Buddha teaches us to be mindful of any activity of mind and body, or any mental and physical processes as they really are, so that we can realize the two processes as natural processes. This insight is called knowledge of Sabhava-lakkhana (right understanding of the specific characteristics or individual characteristics of mental and physical phenomena). This insight knowledge destroys the concept of soul or self, person or being which is the main cause of defilements (kilesas) such as greed, anger, delusion and conceit and so on. So we can say that this concept of a soul or a self is the seed of all defilements. When we have exterminated the seed there will not arise any defilements and we have got rid of suffering. That is:

    Sakkaya-ditthi pahanaya sato bhikkhu paribbaje.

    ‘Sakkaya-ditthi pahanaya’ means to overcome this false view of a soul, a self or a person; ‘sato’ means mindful; Bhikkhu means monk. A Bhikkhu who is mindful of phenomena must strive or practice to overcome the false view. When he is able to destroy that sakkaya-ditthi, he is sure to deliver himself from all kinds of suffering. This sakkaya-ditthi is the cause of all kinds of defilements or the seed of all defilements. So we have to try to exterminate it through right understanding of mental and physical processes by means of mindfulness meditation.

    Many Asian cultures have developed a tantric version of Buddhism to overcome this problem for especially for laypeople which used Brahmanism context to transport the understanding of Dhamma.
    Every kind of soul believe would maximal lead to heavenly realms but never out of the wheel of suffering. That is why many sects try to motivate on ideas regarding metreyya or other reason so search for heavenly realms rather to putting suffering an end.

    In the forum you will find the khmer version of tantric theravada as well, it does not mean that it transports a different understanding but it is an integration of material attachments and transform them into right view at least.

    Brahmanism is indeed contrary to the approach of Buddha as it leads (look at India and its suffering of billions of people today) to more suffering. Here a quote of Ajhan Fuang:

    “When we see Hindus worshiping Siva lingas it looks strange to us, but actually everyone in the world worships the Siva linga — i.e., they worship sex, simply that the Hindus are the only ones who are open about it. Sex is the creator of the world. The reason we’re all born is because we worship the Siva linga in our hearts.”

    The ärathanear”/ invitation by Preah In Sakkatevareach was seen in Buddha Tumneay as well.

    In Buddha Tumneay, Preah In invited a Tevabot to come down to earth to save it.

    Neak Mean Bonns keep dealing within their family for important world and earth matters.

    My Boramey connection told me that the invitation went to a Neak Mean Bonn also

    My recent visit to India and Nepal brought me another light on Neak Mean Bonn definition.

    Chatting about God and Buddha contact, a Cambodian monk staying in Nepal talked about invitation (Arattanear in Pali) made by Preah In Sakkatevareach to Buddha then residing in Tusita (heavens).

    The invitation was made prior to Buddha birth as prince Sidharta.

    The invitation was done because Preah In Sakkatevareach (God) saw that the Tusita Buddha had enough merits to come down to earth for a final life in order to save the world which badly needed help.

    The Tusita Buddha accepted the invitation…

    The interaction in Tusita is written in the Tripitaka, the Cambodian monk said. ( I have not verified this claim yet).

    Beside showing another instance of interaction between God and Buddha, it appears like Neak Mean Bonns (Buddha included) and the Preah Family keep working with each other to run the world.

    Neak Mean Bonns also appear belonging in Tusita one time or another!! By Boramey telling, Tusita is supposed to be the heaven I’ll supposed to go back after this life.

    Neak Mean Bonns were from Tusita and of God/ Preah Family :)

    I am aware of repetition of several concepts in these Boramey threads. I keep talking over about the same thing within a thread and also in several threads.

    Readers may need to pay extra attention to follow up theses threads.

    After all, these writings are my research scrap papers. A careful synthesis at the end would be needed if one would want to make sense out of these scrap papers :(

    The Arathanears:

    Invitations/ Arathanears have been a way to get a Neak Mean Bonn to do something that the world needs.

    In many cases, the inviter has been Preah In Sakkatevareach, otherwise known as Preah Beida Tep Ek, God, Brahma, Shiva… and a lot more given names.

    The invitees have been one of His relatives out of Neak Mean Bonn family known also as Preah Family.

    Preah family history is actually Neak Mean Bonn family history. That was what Lokyeay Mao in Pich Nil referred to when she came to talk to me over three years ago or so.

    I did not know what she meant then. I do now.

    Preah family is Neak Mean Bonn family!

    As I am composing the follow-up postings about the Preah/ Neak Mean Bonn family, I remember several Boramey tellings that one of my duties is to find the family members.

    So far, I have met and talked to several Preah family members except about 5 more. These members include Preah Kokkasantho, Preah Neak Kummano, Preah Kassapo and a few more reincarnated souls.

    For the Preah family finding, I can see myself busy exploring more soul meetings in this coming new year of 2012!

    2012 is a date/ year Nostradamus and the Mayans etc predicted the end of the world.

    2012 is the year that Preah In Sakkatevareach denied the end of the world claim. It is the year that good things will start to happen to Cambodia and the world.

    According to Preah In Sakkatevareach and Borameys, in 2012 and 2013, I will be part of the positive change. Well, the year 2012 will start in a few weeks!

    The prediction/ promises:

    Prediction and promises in myths such as Buddha Tumneay have been there for generations and are of no surprise to many elders.

    More recent Boramey telling to my ears though was about Boramey involvement in the New Oudom Mahanokor.

    The involvement started roughly three and a half years ago. It geared toward the establishment of Nokor Vongkot Borei aka the Khmer Oudom Mohanokor.

    Follow-up:

    While furthering my research into Boramey world, the Nokor Vongkot Borey/ Khmer Oudom Mahanokor telling has always been exciting to me.

    Born and well educated in Cambodia, I was one of the Cambodian kids who grew up to appreciate who we are. With that, we want the best for our people. The Khmer Oudom Mahanokor is always ideal…

    Since hearing the Khmer Oudom Mahanokor telling from a Neak Mean Bonn over three years ago, I have quietly followed up to see whether anything would show positive sign of the telling.

    You should not forget that you could die every day, so do not waste your time. *smile* 2012, 2013… or today…

    No Match for an Ox

    An ox that’s been pulling a loaded wagon a long way — the closer the sun lowers to the horizon and evening comes on, the faster it walks, because it wants to reach its destination quickly. It misses its home.

    We human beings, the older we get, the sicker we get, the closer we are to dying: That’s the time when you have to practice. You can’t make old age and illness an excuse not to practice, or else you’ll just be worse than an ox.

    One of the things that I follow up is Boramey involvement.

    As they elected me to be working along with them, Boramey offials and army (all bodiless) were said to work along with Neak Mean Bonns to establish the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor. All these started to happen around four years ago.

    During all these times, as my naked eyes cannot see Borameys or their actions, my human recourse has been to wait and see whether concrete signs of the involvement along with concrete artifacts would show.

    On top of its territorial coverage, the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor essence is about peace and prosperity.

    Peace is the contrast of a turmoil Cambodia which has survived chronicle war conflicts for hundred of years. Just in my short lifetime alone, I have witnessed three major arm conflicts and a few more minor ones.

    Prosperity is the contrast of a starved Cambodia in Khmer Rouge time and even today. Before rice crop, as I am composing this text, many Cambodians have to skip meals for insufficient rice stock.

    Since the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor, I have been looking for signs that would show improvement in peace and prosperity.

    As anyone could guess, peace and prosperity are of very general concepts that are hard to evaluate and follow up.

    How to act to have benefit from material wealth:

    Then Anathapindika the householder went to the Blessed One and, on arrival, having bowed down to him, sat to one side. As he was sitting there the Blessed One said to him: “There are these five benefits that can be obtained from wealth. Which five?

    “There is the case where the disciple of the noble ones — using the wealth earned through his efforts & enterprise, amassed through the strength of his arm, and piled up through the sweat of his brow, righteous wealth righteously gained — provides himself with pleasure & satisfaction, and maintains that pleasure rightly. He provides his mother & father with pleasure & satisfaction, and maintains that pleasure rightly. He provides his children, his wife, his slaves, servants, & assistants with pleasure & satisfaction, and maintains that pleasure rightly. This is the first benefit that can be obtained from wealth.

    “Furthermore, the disciple of the noble ones — using the wealth earned through his efforts & enterprise, amassed through the strength of his arm, and piled up through the sweat of his brow, righteous wealth righteously gained — provides his friends & associates with pleasure & satisfaction, and maintains that pleasure rightly. This is the second benefit that can be obtained from wealth.

    “Furthermore, the disciple of the noble ones — using the wealth earned through his efforts & enterprise, amassed through the strength of his arm, and piled up through the sweat of his brow, righteous wealth righteously gained — wards off from calamities coming from fire, flood, kings, thieves, or hateful heirs, and keeps himself safe. This is the third benefit that can be obtained from wealth.

    “Furthermore, the disciple of the noble ones — using the wealth earned through his efforts & enterprise, amassed through the strength of his arm, and piled up through the sweat of his brow, righteous wealth righteously gained — performs the five oblations: to relatives, guests, the dead, kings, & devas. This is the fourth benefit that can be obtained from wealth.

    “Furthermore, the disciple of the noble ones — using the wealth earned through his efforts & enterprise, amassed through the strength of his arm, and piled up through the sweat of his brow, righteous wealth righteously gained — institutes offerings of supreme aim, heavenly, resulting in happiness, leading to heaven, given to priests & contemplatives who abstain from intoxication & heedlessness, who endure all things with patience & humility, each taming himself, each restraining himself, each taking himself to Unbinding. This is the fifth benefit that can be obtained from wealth.

    “If it so happens that, when a disciple of the noble ones obtains these five benefits from wealth, his wealth goes to depletion, the thought occurs to him, ‘Even though my wealth has gone to depletion, I have obtained the five benefits that can be obtained from wealth,’ and he feels no remorse. If it so happens that, when a disciple of the noble ones obtains these five benefits from wealth, his wealth increases, the thought occurs to him, ‘I have obtained the five benefits that can be obtained from wealth, and my wealth has increased,’ and he feels no remorse. So he feels no remorse in either case.”
    ‘My wealth has been enjoyed, my dependents supported, protected from calamities by me. I have given supreme offerings & performed the five oblations. I have provided for the virtuous, the restrained, followers of the holy life. For whatever aim a wise householder would desire wealth, that aim I have attained. I have done what will not lead to future distress.’ When this is recollected by a mortal, a person established in the Dhamma of the Noble Ones, he is praised in this life and, after death, rejoices in heaven.

    from the Adiya Sutta

    For me as a human, there would be no more joyce than seeing peace, the absolute no-war ideal.

    Neak Mean Bonn told me though that the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor is not about absolute peace. The peace means no big arm conflict such as world war or so. Little conflicts here and there remain part of human worlds.

    For the peace issue, Neak Mean Bonn and I did talk about Prasat Preah Vihear conflict between Thailand and Cambodia. The Preah Vihear case has been an object of my follow-up for which I look for sign of progress in the Khmer Oudom Mohanokor divine project.

    My Neak Mean Bonn said the Preah Vihear case is a step toward the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor in which Thailand was supposed to be part of. In the telling which happened around four years ago, Neak Mean Bonn referred to ex-Thai prime minister Thanksin a Sdech (price). My Neak Mean Bonn said then that Cambodia successfully won over the Thai prince.

    While the Prasat Preah Vihear conflict remains a minor arm conflict, there are signs of coordination between Thailand and Cambodia. Provisional international court ruling of troop withdrawal from he conflict area is being implemented as of this writing.

    While my follow-up continues, positive signs of progress in the matter of peace have been noticeable.

    With the positive sign of peace, I have been glad that Cambodia has not gone through recurring wars again( …, 1970, 1975, 1978 )

    While my follow-up continues, positive signs of progress in the matter of peace have been noticeable.

    For me as a human, there would be no more joyce than seeing peace, the absolute no-war ideal.

    Neak Mean Bonn told me though that the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor is not about absolute peace. The peace means no big arm conflict such as world war or so. Little conflicts here and there remain part of human worlds.

    As anyone could guess, peace and prosperity are of very general concepts that are hard to evaluate and follow up.

    Like peace, the prosperity sign is hard to follow up

    On top of its territorial coverage, the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor essence is about peace and prosperity.

    Peace is the contrast of a turmoil Cambodia which has survived chronicle war conflicts for hundred of years. Just in my short lifetime alone, I have witnessed three major arm conflicts and a few more minor ones.

    Prosperity is the contrast of a starved Cambodia in Khmer Rouge time and even today. Before rice crop, as I am composing this text, many Cambodians have to skip meals for insufficient rice stock.

    Since the new Khmer Oudom Mohanokor, I have been looking for signs that would show improvement in peace and prosperity.

    Like peace, prosperity is a very vague abstract. I do not know any good stick (or econometry) I could use to measure it. No reliable number for GDP or so to calculate prosperity progress.

    My follow-up relies on general human observation.

    With my general observation way, I could not hide my smile as I travel across Cambodia nowsaday. For the last four years, I have spent most of my time in Cambodia since I agreed to help the Neak mean Bonn’s Khmer Oudom Mohanokor divine project.

    There has been quite a bit of positive changes in Cambodian life.

    As poverty is a fact inherent to human life and cannot be eliminated from the world, Cambodia communities have shown small signs of progress toward prosperity.

    In Phnom Penh, unlike decades ago, roads are flocked with tall buildings, cars and motorcycles. Food vendors are everywhere. People appears to have cash for spending!

    In countryside, farmer life also appears to change. There are more farming mechanical tools than decades ago. Farmers’ daughters and wife who traditionally stayed home doing housekeeping only now have jobs in factories somewhere bringing home salary that contributes to new motocycles, car or mechanical farming tools. Very remote villages now have taxis that take people straight to Phnom Penh or main cities nearby.

    The poor Cambodia appears to be moving positively toward prosperity.

    Sure, there are some square meters of forest left. *smile* Ohh I forgot, money comes from the cash machine and electricity from the socket. How comes it that we are already so smart.

    Many foreigners including the US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton mentioned a fast development progress/ recovery in Cambodia.
