The ceremony was held at the Ayeyawady Hall of the embassy on 25 May for two Sayadaws – Most Venerable Dr Shinkai Kori, Chief High Priest of Nenbutsushu Sampozan Muryojuji Temple in Kato, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, and Bhaddanta Pannita of the Myanmar Monastery of Moji World Peace Pagoda, Kitakyushu, Japan — who were awarded religious titles for 2024 by the State Administration Council, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
Present at the ceremony were Ambassador U Soe Han and his wife, Military Attache (Army, Navy, Air Force) Maj-Gen Kyaw Tun, staff of the Myanmar Embassy and the Myanmar Military Attache Office, Myanmar guests, Buddhist well-wishers in Japan, other Theravada Buddhists from World Buddhist Supreme Conference, Nenbutsushu Sampozan Muryojuji Temple and the Vipassana Retreat, and Myanmar government scholars studying in Japan.
After reciting Namo Tassa three times and observing the Buddha’s attributes by Japanese monks, the ceremony was opened, and the attendees took five precepts in the presence of the Sayadaw Bhaddanta Nyarnotetara.
Ambassador U Soe Han explained the purpose of holding the ceremony and delivered words of thanks. Afterwards, the titles and insignia were conferred on Most Venerable Dr Shinkai Kori, who received the title of Abhidhaja Agga Maha Saddhamma Jotika title, and Sayadaw Bhaddanda Pannita, who received the title of Abhidhaja Agga Maha Kamatthana Cariya title, and the Sayadaws responded words of thanks.
