Notes
Content: No. 31. Min Síthú Nat and No. 32. Min Kyawzwá Nat. King Thénzwin of Pagán had two sons by his Northern Queen, the Anauk Míbayá, named Síthú and Kyawzwá. He determined to make another son, Shwé Laung, his heir, and in order to avert danger from him in consequence, he sent the brothers, Síthú and Kyawzwá, to suppress the Karens on the Taung-ngú [Tonghoo] border, which service they performed with great success. Subsequently, they made a great dyke to drain the Myaungdú village, founded by Min Nyénaung, and quarrelled over turning water into it; whereupon Síthú killed his younger brother, Kyawzwá, who became a Nat, and revenged himself by afterwards doing Síthú to death by enchantments. Síthú in his turn became a Nat, too. There is another legend, which makes out Min Síthú Nat to be Alaungsíthú, son of King Shwégú-dáraká of Pagán. The Nat Min Síthú is represented as a young man in high class Court dress, seated on a lotus throne in the attitude of preaching; and the Nat Min Kyawzwá as a young man in high class Court dress, riding violently.
