Generosity and Culture

An interesting commercial has been released in Thailand which emphasizes the importance of giving in life.  As a number of Facebook friends have pointed out, it is a real tear-jerker whether you are in Thailand or anywhere else.

Being Thai, this is undoubtedly inspired by Buddhist concepts of karma.  But the story, for different reasons, also perhaps reflects Calvinist ideas of pre-destination, or what is sometimes called “theology of works.”

Bottom line, however you look at it, giving is a good thing.  So be generate habits of generosity in the fashion described in the film!
