There are two directions of Dhura in Buddhism.
1. Kuntha Dhura : is based on study of Buddha Teachings such as Pali, Dhamma,
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
creat Vipassana Centre and appionted MASTER VENERABLE SOM BUNTHEOUN(Preah
