U Aung Moung
U Aung Moung

Sayagyi U Ba Than lost his “right arm man” U Aung Moung (M73) in early January, 2018.

Whenever Sayagyi asked for U Aung Moung’s help, he will be at Winner Inn as fast as time and schedule permit.

I met him last year at Winner Inn. He was visiting Sayagyi U Ba Than as well as Daw Win Mar, younger sister of his childhood friend.

U Aung Moung was active in RIT-related activities and in his neighborhood monasteries. The monks voluntarily offered to take part at U Aung Moung’s final journey at Yae Wae. Actions speak louder than words.
