SHIN BYU


Shin Byu
A Shin Byu procession is in central Burma. An ethnic Burmese boy, like all Buddhists in Burma, is not considered a good Buddhist until he has gone through this initiation rite, which involves him dressing up as the Prince Siddhartha Guatama (who became the Buddha) and riding to the monastery, where his head is shaved, he takes on the robes of a monk and he lives in the monastery to receive instructions.

Very intesting to learn more about your country. I have been to southeast Asia - Thailand, Sinapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan -all wonderful places...and, of course, I didn't have nearly enough time there. I worked once in the O. R. with a Burmese anethesiologist...very nice and gentle man.

Thanks for joining my blog. Hope to learn more of your country.
