With almost 90% of the Burmese population practicing Buddhism, it’s no surprise that spirituality holds a very strong influence on society. Religion has shaped Myanmar’s values since the 1st century, and it remains at the center of the country’s rich culture.
Despite the recent developments in press freedom and technology, Myanmar’s connection to Buddhism remains strong. In fact, you’ll notice the religion’s links to the Burmese way of life, be it tradition, language, arts, literature, architecture, education, and politics.
Buddhism is so ingrained in the people of Myanmar that it shows in their conservative attitude towards interaction. Indirect communication, for example, is more accepted by the Burmese; in a local context, it would be better to use “we” instead of “you” when confronting someone.
Much like its own religion, Myanmar can be quite complex, but enlightening--as soon as you understand, respect, and appreciate its ways.
