Thank you!
The Shwedagon Pagoda (officially titled Shwedagon Zedi Daw), also known in English as the Great Dagon Pagoda and the Golden Pagoda, is a 99 metres (325 ft) gilded pagoda and stupa located in Yangon, Burma. The pagoda lies to the west of Kandawgyi Lake, on Singuttara Hill, thus dominating the skyline of the city. It is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda for the Burmese with relics of the past four Buddhas enshrined within: the staff of Kakusandha, the water filter of Koṇāgamana, a piece of the robe of Kassapa and eight strands of hair from Gautama, the historical Buddha

Yangon, Shwedagon Pagoda3

  1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/michaelasanda-2100256-myanmar77/
  2. 2. When Myanmar Buddhists go to the pagoda, they know in their hearts that they are treading the noble path to that state where the best of human nature will have a fair chance to manifest itself in deeds of generosity, loving kindness and compassion for one's fellow beings. Visits to pagodas are important to Myanmar Buddhists. The guiding force is faith in the efficacy of one's own karmic deeds. For example, contemplation of the infinite compassion of Buddha, as one makes one's way to Shwedagon's great stupa, is a good karmic deed. The pilgrim, on his way up the steps of the pagoda, buys flowers, candles, coloured flags and streamers.

  9. 9. Traditionally the Victory Ground is the ground where kings, princes, generals and solders of ancient Hansawaddi Mon kingdom come and pray for success before they leave for war. In recent years, this place is associated with student political movements as student activists usually use this ground for launching their anti government activities. Not surprisingly, this place is one of the most closely watched places in Shwedagon. Just in front of the Victory Ground is the Eleven Shrine Cluster. This is a cluster of eleven shrines with a standing Buddha in the

  14. 14. Singu's Bell is associated with an interesting history. In 1825, British attempted to steal it from Shwedagon Pagoda. However, the ship that carried the bell to India sank in Rangoon River together with the bell. After several unsuccessful attempts to salvage the bell, British finally gave up.

  16. 16. Sandawdwin Pagoda The Hair Relics Well is said to be fed by the Ayeyarwady River. The Buddha's hairs were washed in this well before being enshrined in the main stupa.
