2. អប់រំ និងចំណេះដឹង (Education and Knowledge)

Khmer word : ដឹងថាខ្លួនល្ងង់ គង់នឹងមានប្រាជ្ញា

Khmer spelling : (deung tha khluon lngong' kong neung mean prachgna)

English by Khmer: (know that oneself ignorant sure about have intelligence)

English Description: If you know you are ignorant, you are full of wisdom. This insight belong to the traditional Chinese treasure of wisdom, which is meanwhile also part of the Western culture.
