When people think of Cham, they often think of temples, or Kate festival. But I am aware not only Cham art is important; literature is, too.
Where is the Cham literature?
Solving this problem is a really difficult thing for someone like me. Not only because I have never written any research paper before, but also because reference materials on Cham literature are very rare.
It does not matter! I spent all my youth wandering throught the most of Cham villages to collect manuscripts, then study and write to realize my own aspiration.
Finally, after 24 years of work, I achieved my goal. In 1995, “The literature of Champa: Outline and selections” of over 1,000 pages were published.
Almost of all Cham people have never seen a literary collective like that before.
Although the research books were hard to sell, I decided to print 2,000 copies per volume. Most of these ones are the gifts for Cham readers.
I hope that this volume of literature will bring a spiritual value to every Cham family.
