[IRASEC Conference Series: Buddhism & Society]

The manuscripts engraved on latanier leaves, copied from generation to generation over centuries, were stored in the libraries of the monasteries of Cambodia. War, the Khmer Rouge regime as well as neglect led to their almost complete disappearance. Reading those that remain can nevertheless help us understand and comprehend the organization of the most ordinary Buddhist rituals in Khmer society.
