Family being blessed by a monk at Angkor Thom, Cambodia. Blessed with great luck, great riches, a great new job, a beautiful wife and healthy children. Monks usually give a blessing to any folks that have been to make merit ie.. gave a donation to the temple, brought everyday essential things for the monks' use or gave them some drinks or a Buddha image.

Minutes before this photo was taken we sat through the monk ceremony of their chanting which was unbelievably uplifting, an experience we will never forget!
