 Many of them display the Angkor temples still inhabited today by Buddhist monks just as their ancestors did during the height of the Khmer empire (from the 9th to the 13th centuries), when Angkor was the capital city. I just fell in love with how the traditional orange in the monks vests contrasts so beautifully with the green and calm surroundings. These are just so beautiful, honestly,  I dare you to like or reblog this post without seeing each one in large.

Quote 6 Sep
Listening to your own heart is really very interesting. This untrained heart races around following its own habits. It jumps about excitedly, randomly, because it has never been trained. Train your heart! Buddhist meditation is about the heart; it’s about developing the heart or mind, about developing your own heart. This is very, very important. Buddhism is the religion of the heart. Only this. One who practices to develop the heart is one who practices Buddhism.
— Ajahn Chah, Food for the Heart
