there was a thread on tattoos not long ago and this looks similar, it looks thai to me although the tattoo I thought was thai turnes out to be Khmer.

that is about all I can guess it is related to.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …

He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

I should of added more info. I know the language is Pali or Pali Canon. I am wondering what it says in english or what it means. It was sent to me and all I have found out from others is what language it is. I will check tattoes and see if I can find anything Thanks :namaste:

I was talking about the origin of the motif & script.

The script is Thai. The language is also Thai. It is definitely not Pali. I think I can read the Thai word for "money" in the text, but I will leave translating it to someone who knows Thai better than I do.
