U Khanti had formerly been a monk in the 19th century when he saw that many Buddhist sites were suffering greatly as a result of the loss of the Burmese king and the rise of the colonial period. Therefore he disrobed so that he would be allowed so that he would be allowed to handle money (for monastics may not touch money) and led massive restoration projects while collecting smaller donations from thousands and possibly millions of Burmese lay people.
