Blessing in disguise from God: Conqueror Mongols were conquered by their Muslim wives

November 8, 2013

I used to tell my Rohingya and Chin friends to regard their fled as blessing in disguise from God. If they continue staying in Burma they would be poor farmers and fishermen there w/o progress.

The Guest House

December 20, 2011
“The Guest House”:
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival. …
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
Some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
Who violently sweep your house
Empty of its furniture,
Still, treat each guest honorably.
[They] may be clearing you out
For some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
Meet them at the door laughing,
And invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
Because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond.
Rumi, in the 13th century said in his poem above.

Nay Aung Kyaw With Sayar Nay Win Myint

XXX Oo Hey. You look smart but Sayar Nay Win Myint looks like real Ka Lar Gyi ( Old Indian from southern India). P:

I respect him and love him.    It is a sad state in Myanmar that Chinese Buddhists could disguise as PURE Bama but Indian Buddhists R called Ka Lar.
