The full moon day of Kason (May), 6th May of 2020 in English calendar, in 1328 of Burmese Calendar, was Sunlun Sayadaw U Wara’ 74 years Birthday. Actually Sayadaw U Wara was born on 15th May of 1946 in English calendar. But Burmese days were preferable in the religious purposes. Every year Sunlun yogis held Sayadaw U Wara’s birthday on the full moon day of Kason, and have the alms-giving ceremony and hundreds of Buddhists come and participate.

But this year, because of the pandemic situation there would never be.

Sayadaw U Vinaya was born on 5th August in English calendar, and on the full moon day of Wah-Kaung in Burmese Calendar. His birthday this year in Burmese calendar came on 2nd September 2020. It was Wednesday, the day Sayadaw U Vinaya was born. It was a rare coincidence!
(Sayadaw U Wara said,
‘You all have to try to meditate harder, because today is Sunlun Sayadaw U Vinaya’s 106th Birthday.’ 
on 2nd September 2020, the full moon day of Wah-Kaung.)
