Kan Ben Bodhikaram Temple September 6 – 19, 2017

Bodhikaram Temple, Ottawa.JPGWhat is Kan Ben Ceremony? 

Kan Ben ceremony or festival is the traditional Ceremony of the Cambodian Buddhism that our ancestors have been observing for generations as the worthy heritage to the next generation.

Our forefathers defined this ceremony from the 1st to 14th day of waning moon in the 10th lunar month, the month Bhadrapada (usually falls in September) as Kan Ben ceremony and the 15th day of waning moon as Phchum Ben (Khmer Ancestor’ Day or Festival of the hungry ghost). These 15 days are called Phchum’s Season (Rodov Pchum) which is held every year. It is believed that during this time the guardians of hell release all hungry ghosts to come to earth to appreciate the merit of their relatives who bring foods, fruits and other requisites to offer the monks in the temple and dedicate merit to them. After the hungry ghosts appreciate the merit that their relatives dedicate to them, they are no longer hungry ghosts in the suffering realm, but they turn to be heavenly beings living in Heaven. With gratitude, they bless their relatives who have accumulated good karma on their behalf and wish them happiness and prosperity. That is why our forefathers have been holding this ceremony from the ancient time until now. Each Kan Ben’s Day people gathering as a family or group taking turn bringing food and requisites to the temple to offer to the monks and dedicate merit to their ancestors and late relatives. On Pchum Ben Day, people all groups and family come to the temple to celebrate it together.

In 2017, the Kan Ben Day will be started from September 6 to September 19, and September 20 is the exact Pchum Ben’s Day. Under the circumstance that we can hold the event only in the weekend to give people the time to come and celebrate together, Bodhikaram temple will start Kan Ben from September 6 to September 19, except on September 16 we don’t have Kan Ben Day, but celebrate Pchum Ben Ceremony together.

We would like to invite you, your family and group to take turn for Kan Ben (Kan Ven Ben) any of your available day from September 6 to September 15 and come to celebrate Pchum Ben Day together on September 16 and then we continue the Kan Ben’s day until September 19. If you are available on September 20, please come to celebrate the exact Pchum Ben day again. 

Thank you for helping us to preserve Buddhist Culture for the sake of all beings.

Three Days of Khmer New Year

-Maha Songkran: Maha Songkran, derived from Sanskrit Maha Sangkranti, is the name of the first day of the new year celebration. It is the ending of the year and the beginning of a new one. People dress up and light candles and burn incense sticks at shrines, where the members of each family pay homage to offer thanks for the Buddha‘s teachings by bowing, kneeling and prostrating themselves three times before his image. For good luck (according to ancient belief) people wash their face with holy water in the morning, their chests at noon, and their feet in the evening before they go to bed.

In Buddhist Teaching, the three ways of good luck as mentioned above are reminding people to do good deed by purifying the three actions which are Verbal Action, Mental Action and Bodily Action. To have good luck or Happiness in their lives they have to cultivate good speech, good thought and good work.

-Vearak Wanabat: Vearak Wanabat is the name of the second day of the new year celebration. People contribute charity to the less fortunate by helping the poor, servants, homeless, and low-income families. Families attend a dedication ceremony to their ancestors at the monastery.

-Thngai Loeunng Sak: Thngai Loeung Sak is the name of the third day of the new year celebration. Buddhists cleanse the Buddha statues and their elders with perfumed water. Bathing the Buddha images is the symbol that water will be needed for all kinds of plants and lives. It is also thought to be a kind deed that will bring longevity, good luck, happiness and prosperity in life. By bathing their grandparents and parents, children can obtain from them best wishes and good advice for the future.

The Cambodian New Year this year will start on Friday, April 13 at 7:11 PM and complete three days as Thngai Loeung Sak on Sunday, April 15, at 11:43:48 PM .
