"Wan Org Pansa" What is this The Lord of the Rings? The Thai word for leaving/exiting/going out is ออก which transliterates to something like "aawk". No "r" and definitely no Orcs involved. 

There are a few Orcs about in my area... but they are not Thai Buddhists.

Blame the Brits for the horrid transliterations they read or sound as aw... just awful.

Why the question mark alant?

From what I've read Siddhartha Gautama "The Buddha" hated monument/deity worship, was married and had children. Took a break from his walk about and never said don't drink. His wife joined him on his second walk about. The 3 truths are as valid today as they were when he first spoke them (nothing about not drinking or sticking sharp objects into one's body). So that I believe is the question mark or that's what I take from the?

Oh, I was asking alant. But thanks for your enlightening reply. And are the Ten Commandments as valid today as they were when Moses, alledgedly, got them from 'God'.
