Sermon on Virtues of Parents

By Chhay Daroth

Five students from the University of Cambodia (UC) were invited to listen to a sermon at the Ministry of Cults and Religions on September 14. The sermon, “The Minute of Buddhism in Relation to Society,” was delivered by five monks from Preah Sihanouk Raja Buddhist University under the topic of “Virtue.” Hundreds of Buddhist people in Cambodia attended the event.

Many individuals were emotional after listening to one of the monks read a poem describing the virtues of parents, and acknowledged that their parents have sacrificed much for them.

The students who attended this event said they were very happy to participate in the activity, and believe that respecting and appreciating one’s parents is an honorable virtue.
