Vipassana in Cambodia

Postby Hanzze » Mon Oct 04, 2010 1:58 pm

Do anybody have any experience about the standard of teacher and where to find good teacher in Cambodia?
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ... Peace is Possible! Step by Step. - Samtach Preah Maha Ghosananda "Step by Step" http://www.ghosananda.org/bio_book.html

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

I understand Ven Yos Hut Khemacaro teaches regular weekly classes in Wat Langka in Phnom Penh. A Cambodian monk Ven Sanghabodhi ( who is primarily based in USA) leads many of the Goenka retreats at the Battambang Centre.

I recently learned about a meditation center in Cambodia named Phnom Sombok Meditation Centre, about 15 mins outside the town of Kratie ( pronounced Kracheas). It may be related to the Pa-Auk tradition of Myanmar. The teacher is Ven Dhammacari.

There is another new centre near Phnom Penh called Aural Mountain Meditation Centre ( sometimes also spelled Oral), named after its location, but I know little about it.
