An Honored Guest

“In our several trips to Burma, we have always made a personal pilgrimage with Ko Kyaw Ngwe or—in the last few years—Ma Khaing. We never tire of visiting these inspiring places because of their impact on our meditation practice but these trips were always made even more special because Ma Khaing made us feel part of her family. We were welcomed with open arms by Ma Khaing, her parents, her brothers, her sister-in-law (who happened to be a professional chef with an impressive repertoire of vegetarian versions of traditional Burmese dishes) and her daughters. Traveling with Ma Khaing we never felt like tourists but rather the honored guests of the Burmese people. Ma Khaing’s presence also added to our experience of the Dhamma places we visited, not only because of her ability to connect with the monks and the lay-people there but also because she was always eager—as we were—to meditate in these memorable spots.” Laura Mills, USA
