Dear Falk,

it is very difficult to read, I will ask. More than 50% of the khmer script is not read able. Maybe you can do this pictures one more time so that the flash does not take so much of the rest color.
One starts with sompeah what means bow or great. I guess those are prayers. It doesn't looks like khmer-pali, but I can be wrong. So if you have a change to make them one more time I would ask.
Just that! *smile*

If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

Dear Falk,
it seams to be pali/sanskrit but it could be also that it is Thai. Thai used Cambodian script in religion for a long time. Please be patient it could need a long time *smile* lets see.
