Rebuilding the Saṅgha under Socialism
This chapter discusses the aftermath of the oppression of Buddhism during the Democratic Kampuchea period, arguing that while Buddhism had been in danger during the time, it was never totally extinguished, despite the claims of Angkar to the contrary. It goes on to describe various efforts at restoration and rebuilding, both of the memberships of the monastic order, as well as the more physical aspects of Buddhist institutions, such as its infrastructure. Moreover, the chapter details official and unofficial ordinations, which have caused some friction among the monks, as well as other miscellaneous aspects of this new era of Buddhism in Cambodia. Finally, the chapter turns to a discussion of Buddhism in the late PRK (People's Republic of Kampuchea) period.
