September 23, 2018
I prefer to have a ride with someone to attend events at a considerable distance from home. It is difficult to attend several events happening concurrently.
(On September 23, 2018, several events happened in different parts of the USA.
- Saya U Myat Htoo (C68, Chair of BOD) and Daw Hnin Maung Maung hosted the face-to-face meeting of NorCal RITAA.
U Myint Swe (EP74) and Daw San San (EC74) provided the ride to Saya U Myat Htoo’s house.
U Yu Ket (Edward Saw, EC85) took us back home. He provided ice cream at the Giradelli Chocolate Factory & Ice Cream Shop on our way back.
- We could not attend the 90+ birthday ah hlu of U Tun Mya (Bagyi Mya) at Mettananda Vihara (now in the border of Castro Valley and Fremont).
- We could not attend the 49 day (after demise) ah hlu for Daw Pu (Dhamma friend).
Some performed Dana for their loved ones.
- There was a Su Paung Soon dana at TMC (Tathagatha Meditation Center) in San Jose.
The donors include the spouse and mother-in-law of Edward Saw (EC85), two sisters of U Sein Yaung (Fred, M67) & the family of one sister.
- U Wynn Myint Aung (EC76) offered soon in Maryland in memory of U Than Tun (father-in-law).
