BUDDHA-YOGA-ŚIVA HYBRIDITY AMONG THE OLD KHMER AND SIAMESE

S. Sritantra

Abstract


This essay explores some cultural fusions, infusions and confusions among the Old Khmer and Siamese kingdoms, two geographically contiguous neighbors in the Lower Mekong River Basin—a region remarkably rich in enigma but regrettably shrouded in disregard. This essay furthermore aims to provide an array of access tools that would at once explain and counterpoise the prevailing neglect within “etic” colonial erudition for “emic” indigenous methodologies that are basic to the subjects that it seeks to uncover.
