    1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/michaelasanda-2081721-myanmar45-mingun3/
    2. 2. Mingun is a village on the western bank of the river Ayeyawaddy, approximately 7 miles north of Mandalay. It is reached by ferryboats across the river and takes 1 hour for up-river and 40 minutes for downriver. It is famous for many Buddhist shrines, monasteries, meditation centre and monuments of historical and cultural importance.
    3. 3. Taxi
    4. 4. Acacia trees
    5. 5. Weaver birds build the most amazingly complex nests Houses are built of bamboo in the traditional style: bamboo plaited frames.
    6. 6. Weaver birds nests, woven out of grass strands and based on a knot and hop around a branch.
    7. 7. Taxi The fuel supply station
    8. 8. Mingun Monument to The Venerable Mingun Sayadaw
    9. 9. The Venerable Mingun Sayadaw U Vicittasarabivamsa (1911 – 1993) was a Burmese Theravada Buddhist monk, best known for his memory skills and his role in the Sixth Buddhist Council
    10. 10. The Venerable Mingun Sayadaw in 1953, became the first monk ever to be awarded the title of Tipitakadhara, meaning Keeper and Guardian of the Tipitaka.
    11. 11. In 1985, the Guinness Book of Records recorded the sayadaw as a record holder in the Human memory category. The exact entry was Human memory: Bhandanta Vicitsara (sic) recited 16,000 pages of Buddhist canonical text in Rangoon, Burma in May 1954. Rare instances of eidetic memory -- the ability to project and hence "visually" recall material-- are known to science
    12. 12. Nerium oleander is a highly toxic ornamental shrub
    13. 13. Euphorbia milii (crown of thorns, Christ plant, Christ thorn) is a species of flowering plant. The sap is moderately poisonous.
    14. 14. Euphorbia milii (Christ thorn
    15. 15. In about 1970, Mingun Sayadaw established a home for old people who did not have family members to care for them. “It is the custom there that elderly people live with their family. If they don’t have any family left, they are considered and called orphans. This elderly home, The Buddhist Home for Aged People is for orphans. Beautiful people, all; there is only one nurse taking care of more than 80 people, so they take care of each other. They live on donations from Buddhist people. And it is a happy place! Unlike so many elderly homes in the West.”
    16. 16. The Buddhist Home for Aged People
    17. 17. Burmese culture is deeply rooted in the Buddhist teachings and so the respect and veneration for the elders is thoroughly embedded in the heart of Burmese people. To have a ceremony during which the elders are honoured and showed reverence is nothing unusual in Burma.
    18. 18. In one of his discourses, the Buddha said that one could not repay one’s parents, even if one were to carry them on one’s shoulders for the rest of one’s life.
    19. 19. The glass cabinet of medicines, from all around the world, most of which had been donated by visitors.
