"With very limited material on Myanmar culture and literature translated into English, this book covers collections of codes of conduct, principles of morality, maxims and ethical recommendations for different kind of people (general reader, powerful elites, etc) in ancient times in Myanmar. Reading these beautiful texts will expand your knowledge on Myanmar Buddhist culture and tradition…This book will be a valuable gem for those interested in learning about Burmese culture and literature in ancient times."
