In Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, Monks Preserve Traditional Khmer Culture and Literature

By Micheal Huff

Once, very far away and very long ago, a powerful king from the West met a wise monk from the East. To test the monk's wisdom, the king posed many difficult questions: Why do good people sometimes suffer while evil people sometimes prosper? How can we know what truth is? How can there be rebirth without an eternal soul ? He asked many such questions. To each, the monk answered with brilliance and serenity. After their talk, the king left his throne and joined the monk in teaching the Middle Way.

The classic "Vietnamese think Khmer Krom as Khmer, and Cambodian think Khmer Krom as Vietnamese" scenario arose when Truong Thi May became the runner up of the Miss Viet Ethnic 2007. Some Vietnamese newspapers have tried to discredit her by claiming that she's of Kinh's ethic (majority ethnic of Vietnam). Some Khmer on the other hand believe she's a Vietnamese. Khmer Krom have always been facing discrimination by both the Cambodian and the Vietnamese population.
