On 22 September 2007 at 12.00 pm, our monks stated marching from the foot of the Shwedagon Pagoda , passing Myaynegon. Burmese Broadcasthing Service, Hledan Junction, University Avenue Toad, and current Daw Aung San Suu Kyis house to reach the place in front of National League for Democracy Headquarters. More than 7000 monk and 20,000 people took part in the march. On this day, Daw Aung San Su

Kyis came out of her house and garden to pay homage to the monks from All Burma Monks Representative Association. Then all the monks recited in unison the sermon for the protection from evil and harm for about 15 minutes. We also said the prayer for compassion and love for Daw suu. We were extremely sad and heart-broken to see Daw suus tears and her crying bitterly while she listening to our sermons.

One significant event on this day was that we recited the sermon to prevent harm in front of the Pinma Hall in the University Avenue Toad while our monks were warching to wads Daw Aung San Suu Kyis house. While reciting the sermon, we were heart-broken to see people who were listening to our sermon crying sorrowfully.

We felt that their fear and hatred in their heart- what they felt and what they wanted immediately seeped into our vein. While going to Daw Aung San Suu kyis house, we encountered the complete blockade at three check points by members of the security police. After having explained thoroughly to the understanding of these security policemen they allowed us to spoceed to wards Daw Suus house. However, some members of intelligence forces of the SPDC took many photographs of our monks who are members of All Burma Monks Tepresentative Association.

It had been four years that Daw Suu had been incarcerated for security reasons since 2003 Depayin incident; I had heard that Daw Suu was in poor health; so, I felt sad and concerned that we would not even see Daw

Suu. However, we were elated when daw suu came out to see us immediately after she heard our prayers for compassion from her house. Daw Suu came out to greet our monks , students and people. At that time, we saw over 30 mumbers of security police standing and obstructing in front of Daw Suu.
