Nga Kyan Pyan Kyaung Centennial
The first Resident Sayadaw was from Dawei (Tavoy). He successfully recited five Dhamma Texts (Kyan). A book was published to celebrate the Centennial of the founding of the “Nga Kyan Pyan (Dawei) Sasana Yeiktha“.
I was asked to contribute an article. I stressed the importance of time.
I received a copy of the book. I was sad to see some typos and errors that should have been caught by the proof reader and the type setter.
Two sermons translated by U Pe Maung Tin
Sayagyi U Pe Maung Tin was Professor of Pali and Burmese.
His students include
- ICS U Sein Tin (Theikpan Maung Wa)
- U Thein Han (Zawgyi)
- U Wun (Minthuwun)
U Tha Win requested Sayagyi U Pe Maung Tin to translate into English the two sermons that Buddha gave to his five disciples at the Deer Sanctuary.
Dhammacakkapavattna Sutta is the first sermon delivered to the five disciples.
Anatta Lekhanna Sutta is the follow up sermon given to the five disciples.
Note : Hemanwunta Sutta given to a celestial is considered as Buddha’s second sermon.
Saya U Aung Zaw (UCC) sent me an early version of the book. It has three columns :
- English (translated by Sayagyi).
Dr. Kyaw Tint (Science Scholar for Physics) has an old worn-out copy of the book. He had typed a few verses and posted on his time line.
We hope some reader has a good copy that is easy to scan.
