This Wheel booklet offers a short history of Buddhism in Myanmar from its origins until the beginning of the colonial period in the late 19th century.

It is intended to show how Buddhism influenced the development of the Myanmar people until the Theravada Buddhist teachings became their second nature. [From the back cover.]
