Buddhism, or Preah Putthaasasna, is one of the largest religions in this world. The Khmer Krom people are the devotees to Theravada Buddhism. Buddhism has become a key part of their identity. The community members generiously provide funds to construct Buddhist Temples, or Watt. Beliefs, clothing, language, diet, social etiquette, education, social interaction and spiritual development etc., have been sponteneously agglomorated in the temple.
As the world has been changing into a more globalized than traditional place, Khmer Krom Theravada Buddhism is the main linkage between old and new, tradition and modernity. However, its shape is more divergent than others. The "hidden transcript" of Khmer Krom Buddhism is comparing like one black sheep among all the white. This phenomena happens as Khmer Krom Buddhism is locating inside the capitalism economic society with restriction of social participation and multicultural society development. The teaching of Lord Buddha is broader than what we think about modernity. Buddhist tradition has never left its isolated past, but it has always integrated itself through time, space, people, regime and society.
