Against criticism

Dear Editor:

The gentleman writing your Khmer Sayings shows a thorough indoctrination of the Khmer

language. He demonstrates his knowledge of how the sayings are to be used by giving

examples. This is a good means to familiarize outsiders with Khmer philosophy. However

lately, his application of examples is critical of Khmer politicians.

He being familiar with Khmer philosophy knows the meaning of karma. In this case,

criticism being judgment, therefore invites judgement. The ancient saying, "judge

not, lest ye be judged" can be applied here, and the gentleman should heed the

words of a bard, who said "Physician heal thyself." If however this admonition

is unacceptable, then in the words of a former U.S. President should be applied,...

" If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen."
