  1. If you want to get involved in supporting our nonprofit mission, check out our Patreon page:! We're trying to bring free educational materials to every learner in the world… and we're giving out some pretty cool perks. 🙂

  2. I know nothing of Cambodian myths, but I will say that Moni Mekhala is a beautiful name. It rolls off the tongue. I really like it lol

  3. With all due respect,
    I'm Cambodian but I never heard of this myth. Are you sure that you are not confused about Cambodian's myth with Indian? (not sure about Indian 's myth neither but some of our Khmer tales are inspired by Indian tales especially when it comes to God and religion.
