The Venerable Vijaratanapanna Maha Yoeung Sin passed away

Respected Venerables,
Dear Compatriots,
Ladies & Gentlemen,

The late Venerable Vijaratanapanna Maha Yoeung Sin, age 75, born in Preah Rusey province, Kampuchea Krom, president of the Khmer Kampuchea Krom Buddhist Monks Association in Cambodia and abbot of Wat Samaki Raingsey, had passed away on Tuesday September 28, B.E.2554, A.D.2010 due to illness.

His Body lies in a state at Wat Samaki Rainsey, at Stung Meanchey, Khan Meanchey, Phnom Penh. It will be kept till 30 days for making Ceremony.

The venerable was fiercely courageous in advocating the respect of religious and human rights of his fellow Khmer Buddhist monks, compatriots in Kampuchea Krom and Cambodia.

The Khmer Kampuchea Krom community just lost one of the heroic Buddhist monks and human rights advocates. This great loss is for the Khmer Nation and the world.
