Ma Su Nawe at the Zayyar Theinggi Nunnery

“Many times family and friends are not ready for you to become a nun,” Ma Su Nawe told my guide. “They fear that they will lose you and wonder how you can live without working. Sometimes they think that you are selfish, and that you have made a decision that will bring them suffering. They may think that this is just an escape from your responsibilities.” Ma Su Nawe followed her calling and faith. She still visits with her family.
