A Living Memory of Saya Thet Gyi

This short video depicts U Myo Myint, the former Burmese Ambassador to Russia. Made in 2015, he is believe to be the last person alive at the time who had direct experience meditating under Saya Thet Gyi.

Saya Thet Gyi (who passed away in 1945) went on to teach Sayagyi U Ba Khin (who passed away in 1971), who is the teacher of Sayagyi U Goenka (who passed away in 2013). Given this remarkable history, hearing the reminisces of U Myo Myint in the present day is quite special indeed.
