The Senior General planted a Maha Bodhi banyan tree at the designated place and fed fertilizer to it. The Maravijaya Buddha Image is being built with the aim of showing flourishing Theravada Buddhism in Myanmar to the world, to be a focal point of Theravada Buddhism in Myanmar, to ensure the peace and prosperity of the nation and to be a peaceful and prosperous world. Carving of the Buddha image has been completed by 95 per cent and the Buddha park, 83.3 per cent. — MNA/TTA
