Welcome to Watt Dhammaram of Hawaii !
Watt Dhammaram of Hawaii was built under the constitute of Cambodian-Buddhist
Association of Hawaii (CABAH) which is a non-profitable, no partisan and
CABAH is a not-for-profitable and non-political affiliated association;
and it bears no distinction of race, gender or religious faith. It was
established on April 25, 2007 by Cambodian-Americans in Hawaii who are
considered as having a higher labor force participation rate than other
refugee groups and the general population (Tom 1988). The registration
number is: 04/25/200720065. The Cambodian people mostly migrated here
during the civil war 1970-1988. Their resettlement in Hawaii has significantly
enriched multicultural society and contributed healthier community to
Hawaii State as whole.
"Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and
a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity."
We, Cambodian-Americans, strongly believe in community-based development
through social participation and volunteering because this can surely
bear us fruits of happiness, prosperity, and sustainable development.
We set up our goal to promote happiness, peace, harmony, prosperity, human
rights, democracy and sustainability through the practice of Khmer culture
and Buddhism among Cambodian-American community and local mainstream people.
- To find a meeting space or build a Buddhist temple as a center and
main place for gathering of community members.
- To provide religious and educational programs which include: retreats,
mindfulness meditations, knowledge and teaching in Buddhist philosophy,
chanting from Buddhist scriptures, a short religious address and a traditional
- To open Khmer language class, culture and tradition education in both
theory and practice.
- To provide a venue and opportunity for people to gather for cultural
and religious purposes and to the community at large for a variety of
CABAH is lacking adequate funding to achieve its objectives especially
to find a suitable space for community gathering. So your participation
and contribution are invaluable for us.
