Cambodian Buddhist Temple Plays Host to Mayor Nutter

Friday, August 22, 2008

Venerable Muni Ratana, the community CEO and Mayor Michael Nutter

by KYW's Jim Melwert

Mayor Michael Nutter visited a Cambodian Buddhist Temple in South Philadelphia.
The Cambodian population in Philadelphia is about 20,000 and Michael Nutter (file photo above) is the first mayor to visit the community, according to Robert Koch with the Bra Buddha Ransi Temple:
"It gives the Cambodians a little respect because they've always wanted the mayor to come visit. We've had a lot of promises, most of them were if you want to call broken promises."
Nutter was greeted with a traditional dance in front of the Temple and was presented with a Cambodian flag and other gifts. He says he might be the first mayor to visit the Temple, but he hopefully won't be the last:
"I look forward to working with you over the many years that I'll be in office. But we want to make sure that your presence goes beyond whatever my time is."

Live in Joy

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.
