A Buddhist monk uses leaves to sprinkle water over Pursat
villagers in a roadside blessing ceremony during the 15th Dhammayietra walk. This
year, 83 monks and around 30 laypeople are walking for 21 days to promote peace and
hope, and disseminate educational messages about the environment, HIV/AIDS and drug
abuse to rural communities. The caravan of goodwill is expected to finish at Boribor,
in Kampong Chhnang province on March 31.
