During my visits to Yangon, I paid homage to Sayagyi U Ba Toke with (a) Ko Ohn Khine (provided the ride) (b) Sayagyi U Ba Than (would pay respect to his Saya at least once every year) (c) Saya U Tin Htut (d) “Oo Lay” U Aung Soe (GBNF, was Sayagyi’s dhamma friend and a member of the group who would walk every weekend from Yankin to Shwe Dagon Pagoda)
Sayagyi gave an autographed copy of the book about him.
Saya Dr. Khin Maung Swe (Tekkatho Maung Thin Char) interviewed Sayagyi resulting in six audo cassettes.
Sayama Daw Myint Myint Khaing (Saya KMS’s spouse, daughter of Arzani Mahn Ba Khaing) helped with the transcription.
The book not only covers Sayagyi’s life journey, but also describes some events at the University of Rangoon, and a list of the early Thin Char Sayas (e.g. U Aung Hla, U Kar, U Net)
Phwa Bet Taw
Sayagyi was born in December 1920.
