Another rural idiom

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

FTFY..or how I think it makes better sense...the English at least, my Khmer is minimal, but much the meaning is implied

It involves a kind of communication/knowing between animal and man, which is very prevalent in animism/Theraveda Buddhism
yeah, of coarse, although my focus isnt the English translation,
my focus is the breaking down of the Khmer words used to find the source/roots of the idiom
