Yaw Sayadaw reverently presents 100-tical gold to Shwedagon

Yaw Sayadaw, Tipitakadhara Tipitakakovida, Tipitakadhara Dhamma Bhandagarika, Agga Maha Pandita Bhaddanta Sirinda Bhavamisa, donated over 100 ticals of gold to Shwedagon Pagoda and the ceremony was held without any ostentation as per the wish of the Sayadaw, said lay attendant U Win Thein on the Facebook.
To offer gold plates to the Shwedagon Pagoda in the highest devotion to the Buddha’s omniscience, Yaw Sayadaw donated a viss of pure gold, one gold coin and the state-awarded Thiri Pyanchi Title (six-tical gold) to Shwedagon Pagoda Board of trustees and Regional Chief of Religious Affairs on the morning of 27 February.
Members of the Myanmar cybercommunity were incredibly ecstatic, and their expressions of appreciation spread to every corner of many Facebook pages and posts.
“We published the news of Yaw Sayadaw’s donation of gold to Shwedagon Pagoda. We wished people would joyfully recite Sadhu three times when they saw and heard it. Some people complained that they had not been able to attend the ceremony. The owner family of a gold shop that has been successful in Yangon for many years and who are Sayadaw’s close donors addressed appropriately to Sayadaw, and they donated as the Sayadaw wished,” U Win Thein wrote.
Three trustees, including U Win Thein, were brought before the Sayadaw in early February and ordered to donate all gold pieces to the pagoda.
“In all procedures from beginning to end regarding this donation, we followed the Sayadaw’s instructions to carry it out in a simple manner without any superficial show,” he wrote. — Htet Oo Maung/ZN/ED
