Hot Girl Didn't Have Eyes - Tearjerker

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related.

Hot Girl Didn't Have Eyes - Tearjerker

I liked this video and think it's a good example of Khmer culture and karma.

English subs.

Ooops... My apologies - I haven't had a beer yet and only watched it without sound as my kids are running riot and destroying the house.

Sorry Sorry

You still owe an explanation of the Khmer karma 🙂

The debatedly 'Hot' lady looks down on street cleaner, bullies a small girl and then it turns out the small girl's father is her boss who sacks her.

What goes around comes around.

The politeness of the Khmer even under immense provocation and their belief in karma is one of their strong points in my opinion.

However their head for an eye when pushed toooo far is evident also.

Don't wind a local up and don't look down on the edjie.

I have had a big mouth sometimes and regretted it - maybe Mish is mellowing

A person shouldn’t be kind to others all for the sake of karma

The nine kinds of arrogance are explained in The Tritise on the Source of Wisdom and The Dharma Analysis Treasury.

"Arrogance and attachment to biased views are hindrances in attain Buddhahood in your future existences. You should be ashamed of them. You should fear them. Fame and honor are nothing but decorations in this life. To change your Karma, you should lay down the banner of arrogance, cast away the stave of anger. "

Pretty basic Buddhism actually. I hope this settles the debt you felt "owed". I would be happy to explain Karma to you as well if need be

Yes, thanks. Karma is not especially difficult. I thought from the opening post it’s got to do with some trait only Khmer people have in their national character. As described now, the same could be said about Thai people and probably others too.
