The Original Words of the Buddha
Buddha’s last word (ខែ្មរ/Khmer ritual poem)
the Buddha passed away, he told alot of thing to Ananda (Buddha’s
cousin and his closed follower) to look after his religion. This ritual
chanting is called “Smot” in Cambodian tradition. I’ve never done any
class about Smot, but I used to hear peopledo it over and over again
many times in Cambodia. So I try to do it during my free time or when I
stay alone. These days, not many young Cambodian people like to know or
hear it. They might even get scared sometimes because they don’t listen
to the meaning at all. When I was a child, I didn’t know what it was
all about too. Until I grow up, I realise that it is a beautiful way of
reading a poem. I am not good at Smot, if anybody out there has a
beatiful voice, you should try. It is fun too. Enjoy the Cambodian Smot.
Peace to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!

An archaeological expedition in Kyrgyzstan has discovered a large

Archeologists in Kyrgyzstan have unearthed a large Buddha statue, in the hills outside the capital Bishkek.
Archaeologists from the Kyrgyz Academy of Sciences, working with
colleagues from the Russian Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, were
digging at a site thought to be the remains of a Buddhist monastery
The newly discovered Buddha statue is 1.5 meters tall (almost 5 feet), and depicts the Buddha sitting in the lotus position.
[Valery Kolchenko, Archaeologist, Kyrgyz National Academy of Sciences]:
“This sculpture is as high as two humans. If we could straighten it out
and put it vertically, its height would be about four meters, as it is
sitting, it’s about one-and-a-half to two meters (high).”
The Buddha statue is believed to date back to a time between the 8th to 10th century.
[Asan Torgoyev, Scientist, Oriental Studies Department of the Hermitage]:
“The excavation of this sculpture is a very laborious task, that is why
we cannot date this artifact to any particular time. First of all we
need to excavate it and then we can say how old it is. Currently we can
date the monastery to a period from the 8th to 10th century.”
Finding Buddhist remains of this kind is rare in the mountainous regions of Kyrgyzstan.
Pre-Islamic Buddhist culture is well documented further south in
Tajikistan, but very unusual in its northern neighbour, Kyrgyzstan.
Locals are accustomed to the excavations, knowing very well that their farm land is in a rich archeological area.
[Zulpihar Aliyev, Local Cattle Herder]:
“As children we collected iron things, a lot of coins, bronze and
copper items here. Almost 50 years have passed since then.”
earlier excavations at the same site near the village of Krasnaya
Rechka, archaeologists have discovered remains of a Buddhist temple, a
fortress, a Karakhanid palace complex, and Buddhist as well as early

Life Of The Lord Buddha Part 3 (Lao/Thai)
Published on Jun 3, 2012
Main article: Buddhist philosophy
Some scholars believe that some portions of the Pali Canon and the
Āgamas contain the actual substance of the historical teachings (and
possibly even the words) of the Buddha. Some scholars believe
the Pali Canon and the Agamas pre-date the Mahāyāna sūtras. The
scriptural works of Early Buddhism precede the Mahayana works
chronologically, and are treated by many Western scholars as the main
credible source for information regarding the actual historical
teachings of Gautama Buddha. However, some scholars do not think that
the texts report on historical events.[dubious — discuss]
Some of the fundamentals of the teachings attributed to Gautama Buddha are:
The Four Noble Truths: that suffering is an ingrained part of
existence; that the origin of suffering is craving for sensuality,
acquisition of identity, and annihilation; that suffering can be ended;
and that following the Noble Eightfold Path is the means to accomplish
The Noble Eightfold Path: right view, right intention,
right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right
mindfulness, and right concentration.
Dependent origination: the mind creates suffering as a natural product of a complex process.
Rejection of the infallibility of accepted scripture: Teachings
should not be accepted unless they are borne out by our experience and
are praised by the wise. See the Kalama Sutta for details.
Anicca (Sanskrit: anitya): That all things that come to be have an end.
Dukkha (Sanskrit: duḥkha): That nothing which comes to be is ultimately satisfying.
Anattā (Sanskrit: anātman): That nothing in the realm of experience can really be said to be “I” or “mine”.
Nibbāna (Sanskrit: Nirvāna): It is possible for sentient beings to
realize a dimension of awareness which is totally unconstructed and
peaceful, and end all suffering due to the mind’s interaction with the
However, in some Mahayana schools, these
points have come to be regarded as more or less subsidiary. There is
disagreement amongst various schools of Buddhism over more complex
aspects of what the Buddha is believed to have taught, and also over
some of the disciplinary rules for monks.
According to tradition,
the Buddha emphasized ethics and correct understanding. He questioned
everyday notions of divinity and salvation. He stated that there is no
intermediary between mankind and the divine; distant gods are subjected
to karma themselves in decaying heavens; and the Buddha is only a guide
and teacher for beings who must tread the path of Nirvāṇa (Pāli:
Nibbāna) themselves to attain the spiritual awakening called bodhi and
understand reality. The Buddhist system of insight and meditation
practice is not claimed to have been divinely revealed, but to spring
from an understanding of the true nature of the mind, which must be
discovered by treading the path guided by the Buddha’s teachings.
