Khmer Saying : សុភាសិតខែ្មរ: សីលជាស្ពាន ទានជាស្បៀង

This is the Khmer Saying to share all Cambodian and others  with a brief explanation. You will find out all the words are useful and meaningful.

1. សីលធម៌​ និង សាសនា (Moral and Religion Khmer Saying)

Khmer word : សីលជាស្ពាន ទានជាស្បៀង

Khmer spelling : (sel jea spean,  tean jea sbeang)

English by Khmer: (moral is like bridge, alms is like food)

English Description: Morals are the bridge, alms are the food. Through the rhyme speam-sbeang we have here a short lesson in Buddhism that attaches great importance to the merits we accumulate for our future life; they are the bridge that facilitates the passage from one life to the other. The term sbeang means food provision and also merits, bringing future enjoyment as the reward for accomplished good deeds.
