RK 1
Annual Meeting 2023 and Research Paper Reading are being held.

An annual meeting and research symposium of the Rakhine Literature and Culture Association (Yangon) was held at the Rakhine State Dhamma Hall near Shwedagon Pagoda on the morning of 19 February.
A symposium on Rakhine history research was included in the ceremony. The thesis writer Maung Phyu (Kywi Te Kyun) read the thesis on finding the coins of the western kings of the Rakhine Waithali period by the hunter’s footprint method, and the thesis writer Htay Wai (Kyaukphyu) read the thesis on Kamaranga/Kama Lanka/Kangyan/Rakhine study. The thing that cannot be completely left out of the coins of the Western kings of the Rakhine Waithali era is the Buddhist Synod Mawgun Stone inscribed by King Ananda Candra.
This stone is a complete record of the kings who ruled from the Rakhine Waithali period (from the 1st century AD to the 7th century AD). In addition, the name of the Kanyan people in the ancient history of Rakhine and Myanmar is a name that changed from the name of Kamaranga city of Oh Htein Sanskrit stone inscription.
Thesis writer Htay Wai (Kyaukphyu) recorded that the name of Rakhine Kamaranga state was called Kamaranga city in the AD 6th century.
The Rakhine History Research Symposium was chaired by Lifetime Literary Award-winning author Phoe Kyawt and National Literary Award-winning writer Kyun Sin Myay Saw Khet, and Chairman of Rakhine Literature and Culture Association (Yangon) U Than Maung (Sittway), and Rakhine History Researcher Prof Dr Saw Tun Aung and Prof Dr Saw Mra Aung participated.
Images of Rakhine coins related to the theme of the symposium, Rakhine rock paintings, pictures of Rakhine culture and historical documents were displayed and history books were also sold during the event.—TWA/KTZH
