Dear All,
We are greatly saddened to learn that Dr. U Kyu Poe (92 Years Old), beloved father of Dr. Win Wah Kyu passed away at Yangon, Myanmar on Thursday 7:30 am, Aug 01, 2019.
Please join us in conveying our deepest condolences to Dr. Win Wah Kyu + Dr. Tin Aung Hla and family, for their great loss.

“Sabbe sankhara anicca” ti
yada pannayapassati
atha nibbindati dukkhe
esa maggo visuddhiya.

“All conditioned phenomena are impermanent”; when one sees this with Insight-wisdom, one becomes weary of dukkha

(i.e., the khandhas). This is the Path to Purity.

Regards,
