Description

Ven. Vicheth Chum Talks about Day to Day Responsibilities as a Monk.

"Our services our busy every day, mostly every weekend, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. People make ceremony in this hall. Sometime they invite us to their home for seven days or one hundred days up to [after] their family member passes away. Funeral home, hospital, nursing home or whatever they need advice from us. Need us to explain to warm up with their mind, their feeling, their problem, or issue. Either they get treatment from their doctor for the physical but we [monks] are Buddhist, religious helper or worker. We help them with mental issue kind of stuff."
