Sampeah Kru Ritual

The rituals of Sampeah Kru (ពិធីសំពះគ្រូ) or Wai Kru (พิธีไหว้ครู) are believed to have derived from ancient animistic beliefs, influenced by the spread of Brahmanism from India. This is evident in the ceremony of traditional dance and music, where specific mention is made to Ishvara and Narayana, along with other Vedic deities.
