2. Vision and Mission Statement:

Most Cambodian people recognize themselves as Buddhist in which this faith has embraced their spirit, way of life, culture and thought. Buddhism has played important roles in the Cambodia society. Through the profound teaching of moderation, middle path, self-reliance, mindfulness, ethic-based individuality, compassion, tolerance, non-violence and enlightenment validate Cambodian people to a high standard of spirituality.

Decades of civil war, all social infrastructures have been violated and damaged especially Buddhism which is considered as the significant institution of society. During Khmer Rouge regime, those perpetrators destroyed temples, sacred sites, scriptures; disrobed and murdered Bhikkhu monks. Viciously, they killed most of the educated stratum of people.
