Saya U Ba Than’s birthday

October 2

For more than a decade, Sayagyi invited his former colleagues and students to the annual Birthday Soon Kyway at Tipitaka Yaw Sayadaw’s Kyaung

The mini-gathering was put on hold due to the pandemic.

There were Zoom sessions organized by his nephew.

Sayagyi received Photo Album / Book compiled by his brother U Tin Htoon (A60) and U Htaik San (Henry Kao, M81). Due the pandemic, the USPS (United States Postal Service) failed to deliver the book and returned it to the sender (U Tin Htoon). Saya U Tin Htut (M60) offered to send the book by DHL. Sayagyi was extremely happy to receive the present from his three former students. He has read the book several times.
