  • [to] do good deeds (This literally means "Attaching gold lead to the back of a Buddha statue", which comes from the tradition of attaching bits of gold leaf to Buddha status during various merit-making (ทำบุญ) rituals in Thailand. Gold leaf attached to front-facing part of the image is seen by everyone, whereas any attached to the rear is much less likely to be seen even though it's an equally merit-worthy act. Hence ปิดทองหลังพระ has come to be used for anyone doing a good deed even though others may not realise or appreciate it.)

Did You Know ?

na in Thai
The particle นะ na is extremely common in spoken and informal Thai, at least as much so as any of the polite particles. It's used to make a sentence sound gentler, softer or more persuasive, when expressing opinions or making statements looking for approval or agreement, when making compliments or encouraging statements, and to make commands, requests, criticisms and warnings seem less abrupt. na can be considered almost mandatory in requests and warnings, unless you want to sound particularly forceful.
