Description:English translation (by Maran Seng Pan) Once upon a time, there was a boy. He did not listen to his parents. When he became a young adult, he started drinking alcohol. Soon he was addicted to alcohol and he did anything which he could get money from. When people asked him to castrate a pig or a cow, he never refused. He also did not share the money he earned with his mother. He just used it all to buy alcohol. His mother warned him, "Son, don't do that kind of work so much! It is not a good work to do always. They are living things. They also have feelings." "Mom, you do not know anything. I do not kill them. So, it is just a normal job. And I get paid from it," the son replied carelessly. His mother warned him again and again after that. But he did never listen to her. After a long time, his mother gave up on him. He lived on like that and his mother passed away when he was an adult man. He continued doing that work for his living. One day he became seriously ill. He couldn't recover from his illness even though he tried many treatments. Soon after, he passed away. There were quite a lot of animals which he castrated when he was alive. But he was still lucky enough to be reborn as a human in the next life. He was reborn as a boy in a village that was across the stream from the village he lived in his previous life. However, as a consequence of what he did in his past life, he was a gay in his new life. When he became a teenager, unlike the other boys he was attracted to the same gender as him. The boys whom he chased dreadfully dispraised him, "You were born as a gay because you castrated many animals in your past life. Don't you feel shame that your body is a man and you are now living like a girl." However, he denied, "It wasn’t me. I did not do that kind of work." Since the people dispraised him badly, he felt not happy about it. One night while he was thinking about it, he fell asleep. He dreamed of the last cow which he castrated. In the dream, the cow threatened in its mind that one day Karma would get back at him for what he did to the animals and he would know how it felt. He was shocked by his dream and he understood why he was reborn as a gay. He regretted what he did in his past life as well.
