Greetings fellow Dhammafarers, it so happened was looking up a Pali word and came across Ven Webu Saydaws translation of the Mahabuddhavaṃsa Great chronicles of the Buddha’s , and was wanting to cross check with the text in KN, am I right in thinking Ven Mingun Sayadaw made his own headings hence the disparity in content?

Here is th link to Mingun Sayadaws book

If my understanding is correct Ven Minguns Book is like a compendium of the Mahabuddhavaṃsa, and not a literal translation*

Hi Bhante,

The work is Mingun Sayadaw’s own composition, made at the request of the then Prime Minister, U Nu. It covers the same ground as the KN’s Buddhavamsa and its commentary but isn’t a translation of them.
