About Us

The Government, with the aim of establishing a Sasana University, invited the leading Sayadaws for consultation. And it was decided that the task of setting up a University should be entrusted to a person of competence, in the person of the late Bhaddanta Vicittasarabhivamsa, the Mingun Sayadaw, who at that time was over seventy years of age.
