U Pe Maung Tin

Update : December 10, 2021

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) 

Myanmar Sar Mi Thar Su had unveiled Sayagyi’s bust in the RU Main Campus.

Two Sermons

U Tha Win requested Sayagyi 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 :

  • Pali
  • Burmese
  • English (translated by Sayagyi).

Dr. Kyaw Tint (Science Scholar for Physicshas an old worn-out copy of the book. He had typed a few verses and posted on his time line.

Hope some reader has a good copy that is easy to scan.
