Blessings and mantras form the backbone of Buddhism, and a simple gesture of tying a string around your wrist, loaded with positivity, can enrich a visitor’s journey through Cambodia.
According to beliefs, the bearer of these strings will carry Buddhist teachings with them and should keep them wrapped around their wrist until it falls off automatically. A sign that the blessing has done its job, and a signal that it is time for a new one.
It’s the experience that counts here.
A reminder of how such simple acts of spiritual belief imbues the bearer.
