Religious objects, along with two Buddha images carved from marble stones, meant for the Eternal Peace Pagoda were displayed in Toungoo yesterday to allow people to pay their respects, as part of a nationwide ceremonial procession.
The Eternal Peace Pagoda is under construction in Nay Pyi Taw. The religious objects and Buddha images were carried on decorated vehicles from Loikaw, Kayah State, yesterday morning and arrived at Toungoo, Bago Region yesterday evening.
The procession arrived in Toungoo after passing through Pekhon, Pinlaung, Naungtayar, Kalaw, and Pyawbwe. The religious objects were placed at the Sasana Hitakari Beikman in Toungoo for public obeisance.
At 7 p.m., Shweparami Forest Retreat Sayadaw Ashin Sandar Dhika delivered a sermon about peace to mark the arrival of the religious objects for the Eternal Peace Pagoda. Among the congregation were Bago Region Chief Minister U Win Thein and members of the Bago Region cabinet. The religious objects and the Buddha images will be brought to Tatkon in Nay Pyi Taw tomorrow. The Eternal Peace Pagoda is being built on 1.3 acres of land in the compound of the Yanaungmyin Shwe Latt Hla Pagoda in Nay Pyi Taw. Dedicated to eternal peace in Myanmar, the pagoda will be 54-feet high when complete. — Han Lin Naing
