This talk explores the transnationalism of Cambodian Buddhism by looking at a number of inter-related phenomena taking place since the early 1990s in Sri Lanka and India:
– Cambodian monks pursuing education,
– Buddhist pilgrimage by Cambodian groups,
– the building of Cambodian-style temples,
– and, underpinning all of this, religious donation – by
Cambodians from Cambodia itself as well as the overseas Cambodian community.
The talk asks: to what extent do these transnational processes tell us something significant about the direction of contemporary Cambodian Buddhism?
