Observers of the Cambodian New Year plant sticks of incense in the mounds, each one representing an ancestor or loved one they wish to bless in the next life. As one of the most important Cambodian New Year festival traditions, the mounds represent Culamuni Cetiya, the stupa at Tavatimsa, where the Buddha's hair and diadem are buried.
Cambodian buddhist monk, Savann Mey, meditates during Cambodian New Year ceremonies, or Chol Chnam Thmey, at the monastic temple, or wat, off Highway 63 in northern Boone County. Cambodian Buddhists from all over Missouri and beyond gathered for three days of festivities marking the beginning of a new year according to the Cambodian calendar. Savann Mey has been living in Boone County for four years and is the only Cambodian Buddhist monk in the state.
Colorful felt decorations on sticks adorn one of the sand mounds fashioned on the temple grounds.
Cambodian Buddhists listen to the monk as he performs a dedication ceremony to their ancestors in the Cambodian language during a moment of Wanabat, which is the second day of the three day New Year celebration. According to tradition, Cambodian Buddhists give charity to the less fortunate in honor of Wanabat.
Attendees of the festival playfully pose for a group picture. Not only a time for pious observance, the Cambodian New Year festival is the perfect time of year for family and friends to spend time together and reunite.
