: [No. 28. Tíbyusaung Nat], No. 29. Tíbyusaung Mèdaw Nat, and No. 30. Yómàshin Mingaung Nat, called also Bayinmàshin Nat. Kyaungbyú Min had, among others, three sons: two by one queen, named Kyízó and Súkadè, and the great king Anawratházaw by another queen. Anawratházaw was much younger than the other two. Kyízó and Súkadè dethroned their father in 348 B.E. (986 A.D.) and Kyízó became king. He was a mighty hunter, pitching his camp at Nyundun on the Chindwin. When twenty-eight years of age he was accidentally killed at Pagyí, near Mt. Pópá, by an arrow from an huntsman and became the Yómàshin Mingaung Nat. And so, in 354 B.E. (992 A.D.), Súkadé became king and married his step-mother, who was the mother of Anawratházaw rebelled against Súkadé, who was killed by a lance. When Kyaungbyú Min was dethroned, his family were sent to a monastery, and the king himself was forced to turn monk. On his death Súkadé became the Tibyúsaung Nat. The mother of the above Nats became the Tibyúsaung Mèdaw Nat. Her votaries are women, who carry a rosary and wear a golden head-dress. In this case, Tibyúsaung Nat is represented, both as a young and as an old man, in the costume of a daukchá yathé, or what purports to be such, seated on a lotus throne. Tibyúsaung Mèdaw Nat is represented as a girl kneeling in full Court dress on a lotus or on a lotus throne. The outward turned elbow is an accomplishment of which Burmese young ladies are very proud. Bayinmáshin Mingaung Nat is seated on a lotus throne in full Court dress of a high class, and sometimes with a bow unstrung. [p. 51-52]
