I was sitting with Bhante, talking about Cambodian history. " Well, you know Cambodia is a mix of Indian and Chinese races. That's why it used to be called Indochina, " he said with a smile. I thought about what had happened to Cambodia lately. Since Ankor Wat it had been pretty much a downhill ride. It was really a vicious spiral of corruption and violence.

I asked Bhante why he had taken on a Cambodian body in this life. I mean these Cambodians played for keeps. There was a pause in the air. I could hear the fan whirring in the background. Bhante stared into space and said quietly, " Somebody has to help them. " I was bowled over by the answer. This was a bodhisattva speaking. The sutras made sense now.

Bhante winked, " Remember, you're the problem and the solution. " I finally got it, that one's salvation was really internal. It could also be eternal if you could apply this wonderful wisdom NOW. I mean RIGHT NOW.
