Saya U Tin Maung Nyunt’s birthday is December 30. He usually celebrates his birthdays by taking eight precepts and practicing vipassana meditation.
Saya is one day older than Saya Allen Htay (GBNF). They came back together from the US on the same ocean liner. Since it was a long trip, they usually play Bridge with Saya U Soe Paing and Saya U Ko Ko Lay (GBNF).
Saya’s height has shrunk 1 or 2 inches, but he does not mind. He is fond of the saying “All great men are short.”
Saya stays in shape by hiking, stationary biking and practicing meditation. He invites his dhamma friends to his house to take part in the meditation sessions.
Saya donated $500 to the “Staff Training Component” of the YTU Library Modernization Project via Northern California RIT Alumni Association.
U Myint Swe (EP74, Secretary) presented the donation receipt and the Appreciation Award to Saya.
Saya also took care of selected old friends in Myanmar. Saya also donated to selected monasteries and meditation centers in Myanmar.
