In the end… We blame it on.. เวรกรรม (wain-gum)
The other day, someone said “Thai ppl are peaceful coz: for the very worst case, we just blame it on wain-gum.” I’ve never realized that but I think it’s quite true.
Let me try explaining ‘wain-gum’ now. Gum literally means ‘Action’. Err.. I’m not very sure what wain means. Let’s say, in this context, wain-gum = gum.
For buddhism belief, action always come with reaction; same as Newton’s first law. What ever action you do, sooner or later, the result of that action will return. it applies to both good and bad ones. So when you get into really really bad situation, you can sooth yourself by thinking of it as “It might be the result of my old Gum ” That’s make it easier to let go– no need to be furious/be upset with anyone coz it’s all because of you yourself… may be it’s what you did yesterday, last month, last year.. or even..last life.
