Shinbyu: The Sangha making ceremony of Myanmar
Shinbyu is the Burmese term for a novitiation ceremony (pabbajja) in the tradition of Theravada Buddhism, referring to the celebrations marking the samanera ordination of a boy under the age of 20.
Almost two thousand years ago, the tradition of Theravada Buddhism was started with the inheritance ceremony of Rahula, who was the son of Buddha. Nowadays, in Myanmar every boy under the age of 20 goes through the samanera ordination in order to embrace the legacy of the Buddha. The Burmese families celebrate the ordination of their young son into the Buddhist order of the Sangha in a traditional way. This occasion is an essential rite in the life of every Buddhist male in Burma which is called Shinbyu, the Shangha making ceremony. The families without having a male child normally seek for an orphan boy or a boy from very poor families in order to receive this special dispensation by the Buddha as this act provide them great blessings and comfort in their lives.
