Pay Respect to U Ba Toke *


  • 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)
