History of Buddhist Meditation Centre of Kingdom of Cambodia There are two directions of Dhura in Buddhism. 1. Kuntha Dhura : is based on study of Buddha Teachings such as Pali, Dhamma, and Discipline. 2. Vipassana Dhura : is based on study of moral concentration, on acquisition of attaining enlightenment or Nibbana. However, most of Cambodian Buddhists don’t know about both Dhura, especially about Vipassana Dhura. As a result, the cabinet of His Royal Highness Supreme Patriarch(Somdech Preah Songhareaj) and the Minister of Ministry of Cults and Religions codially decided to create Vipassana Centre and appionted MASTER VENERABLE SOM BUNTHEOUN(Preah Vipassana Som Buntheoun) as the President on the 26th August 1996 and located in Watt Nondamuny Temple, Sangkat Stung Meanchey, Khan Meanchey, Phnom Penh Capital City. At the moment, Buddhist Meditation Centre has moved to the west hill foot of Atharas Mountain in Commune of Phsar Dek, District of Srok Ponhea Leu, Privince of Kandal. This new place is named Vipassana Dhura Buddhist Centre of Kingdom of Cambodia.
