PREFACE
Just after this ILCAA has published my work on "The Significant Role of the MonVersion Dharma
śā
stra" in 1991, I started compiling my second work on "The SignificantRole of the Mon Language and Culture -in Southeast Asia ". I have had the intention of writing over 300 pages and I did my best. I worked almost seven days a week. However, asthe fiscal year was going to end, the office of this ILCAA must send my typed script to the press in time.Consequently, I have to put this work as Part One. I will continue to compose PartTwo during my remaining period in this ILCAA before the end of this year.On the other hand, permit me to state that prior to 1991, I held no degrees in my lifeand I conceived a feeling of acquiring a doctorate as other scholars are holding.Subsequently, I applied for admission to the Pacific Western University at Los Angeles in thefirst week of July 1991. Very soon, on 24 July 1991, the Academic Committee of the PWUaccepted my application as a student to work for both B. Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in a major of Cultural Anthropology with emphasis in Mon Language and Culture.In view of my distinguished academic career for so long, the University AcademicCouncil of the PWU gave me assignments to submit Resume, Portfolio, Degree ProgramWarrant and Demonstration of Professional Expertise without writing a new dissertation.Besides submitting all of my numerous previously published books in Mon, Myanmar andEnglish, research papers, articles on various topics and lectures delivered in many universitiesand institutions , I sent them also the draft copy of this work as my DPE to the PWU.After examining , verifying , evaluating and assessing all my documents and materialsincluding the draft of this work, the Academic Council of the PWU congratulated me andwith pleasure conferred on me B. Sc. (Hons.) on 15 November 1991 and Ph. D. also withhonors on 15 December 1991 . On account of my book on code of law (Dharma
śā
stra), thePWU honored me with an Honorary LL. D. as of 15 February 1992.Therefore, this book is part of my fulfillment of all the necessary reqirements to beawarded three degrees by an American university within one year duration .I sincerely hope that the Mons both in Thailand (Siam) and Myanmar (Burma) as wellas other scholars and students in the international academic circle would appreciate my work for which I have exerted with strenuous efforts in its compilation.3
