A new recording of the profound Nalikae Tree lullaby, with a direct English translation by Prof. Peter Skilling. 


"Mapraw Nalikae"
A palm tree, a palm tree,
A solitary palm tree stands alone
In the middle of a sea of wax.
Rain does not touch it,
Nor does thunder reach it.
In the middle of a sea of wax.

The only ones who reach it
Are those who go beyond good and bad."

Recording by Chatupon Phechobun.
