The world-famous incident of the South Pole monk who miraculously protected the plane when it was about to crash. Now for general knowledge related to religion. It was an extraordinary event 38 years ago. The South Pole Sayadaw, who spent three weeks at the South Pole Forest Resort near Meikhtila, Mandalay Region, was once known as an arahant.
San Lwin, a writer and director who has authored several books on the Three Jewels, converted to Buddhism under the auspices of the South Pole monk and traveled around Burma in the guise of Ashin Adisiran Thi.
In the 1970s, a plane flying to the United States was about to crash into the sky. At that moment, the two pilots saw a monk in a robe directly in front of the cockpit, and the plane suddenly recovered and returned safely to the United States.

The news was widely reported in American newspapers, where a Burmese monk rescued the plane. The flight attendant was surprised to find out about the flight’s departure to the United States that day. Two Burmese nationals were among the passengers that day; one was Daw Khin Win and the other was a South Pole abbot.
When Daw Khin Win showed the pilots the picture of the South Pole Sayadaw Pagoda, it was the monk who was standing at the bow of the plane and flying in a robe. Thanks to these pilots, a South Pole meditation camp has been set up in the United States, and missionary work is still going on.
