Searching for Myanmar's Myanmar's Myanmar Bell
Dhammazedi Bell's destiny is one of Myanmar's darkest secrets and a lifetime long arc. In Yangon, Rangoon, four hundred years after the world's largest bells were last seen, a new recovery effort is underway that is drawing large numbers of people. Filipe de Brito, a portugese explorer and soldier, took the doorbell with the goal of smelting it into canons.
A few have included multinational crews and elaborate subsea gear, but to date no one has been able to determine exactly where the giant dome is located. "We will have more trouble if we just trust in advanced technology," says San Lin, the head of this recovery effort. In his opinion, Buddhist "nats" or ghosts prevent the finding of the bells and that only the Buddhist spirit he represents can find them.
"so that the dragonghost won't keep the bell," he says. For most of his lifetime, the historic figure San Win has researched and wrote about the Dhammazedi bells and followed the recovery work that went wrong. "However, when we look at the three most important Myanmar storybook, wrote 200 years after the sinking of the belfry, none of them cite it.
You have no question that Myanmar's sacred tomb lies somewhere in the silt.
