Re: QUERY> Help finding a book - Hla Maung. My Early Monastic Education.

Dear Justin,
If you contact me off list (turnera@yorku.ca) I can help you get the book and related sources. My guess is that this is either an unpublished thesis or locally published article from Yangon. I will also connect you with other people working on the topic. If we cannot find the source you might want to post the request to the Burma Studies list.
All best,

Summer Program> Summer Sanskrit Language Intensives at CBS in Kathmandu, June 10 - August 8

QUERY> Help finding a book - Hla Maung. My Early Monastic Education.

Dear List Members,

I need help finding this book,

Hla Maung. (n.d.) My Early Monastic Education (Yangon, International Institute of Advanced Studies).

cited in this article:

Boisvert, Mathieu. 2000. "A Socio-cultural Analysis of the Burmese Shin pyu Ceremony". Journal of Beliefs & Values. 21 (2): 203-211.

This book is not contained in my institution's library catalog (Harvard's HOLLIS) or Worldcat.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
