ANGKOR WAT, CAMBODIA: Unconditional Love in Action – January 19th – 30th, 2017
Join New Thought Minister Rev. David Ault for a profoundly heart-opening spiritual journey of service to Siem Reap, Cambodia – home of the incredible ancient temples of Angkor Wat. To open oneself deeply, to risk feeling the suffering of others, and to wish to relieve that suffering – is the definition of compassion and the cultivation of the Buddha within us. As Gandhi once said: The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Mysterious & Ancient Temples
You’ll have the opportunity to explore the amazing temple complex at Angkor Wat – or at least a part of it! Built in the 12th century, Angkor Wat lies north of the modern town of Siem Reap and was originally Hindu dedicated to the God Vishnu. Around a century later the official religion was changed to Buddhism. Since Buddha was a Hindu, the change of religion was adopted seamlessly and people converted from Hindu to Theravada Buddhist, which continues to the present day.
Unconditional Love in Action ♥
Service is often called unconditional love in action – to give totally of yourself is to be free of ego, 100% present, doing what is needed without judgment. In these moments our heart opens and the truth of who we are comes through – our divine presence. Volunteer travel is a powerful experience – you risk coming home with a clearer vision of what you want in life, a deeper sense of self-realization, and clarity about who you are and your purpose in life!
There is Good Here
Take a moment to enjoy the beautiful video below that David created from pictures of his previous journeys to Cambodia and which shows his special projects: building fresh water wells, providing anti-malaria nets, chicken husbandry program, and a school for the children. Truly David is an extraordinary man passionate about a wonderful cause.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
