KHMER STUDENT COALITION CONFERENCE 2013
“Nurturing the Mind and Body”
Hosted by the Cambodian Student Association of California State University, Sacramento
Saturday, November 23rd, 2013
As we, Cambodian-Americans, transitioned into our adopted country, we not only left and lost loved ones but we also began to incorporate different cultures into our daily routines. As we continue to move forward, it is time to reassess. Questions such as: Who are we? How did we get here? And how do we move forward? These questions will continue to be in our consciousness.
We decided to go back to the Buddhist philosophy of nurturing the mind and body. The idea is that the mind and body are intertwined, and if they are regularly practiced, this will, “Lead to deep spiritual intention, to peace, to mindfulness and clear comprehension, to vision and knowledge, and lead to wisdom and awakening (Buddha).”
We feel that the only way Cambodians and Cambodian-Americans as a whole can progress is by going back to the roots and focusing on how to become a better person. Thus, we turned to the Buddhist philosophy of Nurturing the Mind and Body. There is a yin and yang within each and every one of us. To keep the good side and bad side in check is something we must continuously do in order to improve ourselves as a person. Inevitably, once you become a whole person in this nature, then together we move forward and progress as Cambodians.
