Rak the Book
Translation of Rak Tamachat from Thai to English:
Rak = Love / Tamachat = Nature
if put together they mean in Thai
“Love & Protect Nature – Love Natural”
“Rak the Book“, is meant to bring the whole Rak Tamachat experience and beliefs under one umbrella so it can be shared, copied, stole as many times as possible.
We feel the only way we can share our lives with the most people is without the need to derive monetary value from our shared efforts.
We want you to feel free to use or modify our work and adopt any of the beliefs we have with you own, we also want to share with you in your journey, so feel free to email us to discuss any points, positions, etc…..
We are always happy to share. We recognize that not all people are ready to accept our positions, we will be here to help them to understand where we are coming from and at the same time they may help us to expand our understanding of the world we live in.
After all expanding our knowledge base is one of the main ways we can fight back and sharing it with the world is our best weapon!
