At the 20th meeting of Shwe Kyin Nikaya religious order in Hmawbi township, two monks are likely to be promoted as deputy head monks, as wished by the order’s head monk, said the joint master of ceremonies Ashin Thiri Kizanar Biwuntha.

“Two leading monks will jointly become head monks. The selection will be according to the wishes of Shwe Kyin’s head monk,” he said.

The meeting, which began Monday and continues through Wednesday, will be attended by over 800 Shwe Kyin monks, including 60 foreign monks from 18 countries.

State Ovadacariya Shwe Kyin Head Monk Waso Sayadaw, Bhaddanta Aggiya, passed away at the age of 100 while undergoing treatment at Mandalay General Hospital on February 18, 2017.


According to the rules of the sect, there will be three joint leading monks. With the head monk’s passing, first leading monk Bhaddanta Vijjota becomes the head monk.



what do you think of this now? are the new mr monks gonna be as good as the old ones were or did shwe make mistakes?
