Myanmar Connection: Nats


There were lots of nats in Myanmar long before the 37 Great Nats. A nat of the Great 37 is a bit like a saint or a martyr. such a nat was often a person highly honored and love in life, who died violently.

Other nats may be quite different and highly varied. Some may seem or be little interested in a human connection. Still the represent an energy which may exercise an important influence on a person. In thinking of a nat it may be helpful to recall hearth spirits and wood spirits. Its often best to have them not interested in you. It is very important not to have them against you.

King Alaugsithu

Perhaps later we can find time to peruse history forward and back word from the reign of the Great Nat King Alaugsithu AD 1112-1167.
He was king of Pagan. He had Malaysian connections. He followed king Kyanzittha the pious irrigation systems builder who reigned about AD 1084-1112; who was preceded by King Sawlu 1077-1084 who adopted and Arab.
I believe that Alaugsithu was fathered by Sawyun, a sun of King Sawlu.
