Pongyi

   (Hpoungyi)
   In the Burmese (Myanmar) language, literally "great glory," used to refer to members of the Sangha who have been ordained (thus excluding koyin, or novices) and have pursued the monk's life for an extended period of time. When speaking Burmese, a layperson will use the term to address a monk, as a title, and the monk will use it to refer to himself. Pongyis are considered to be, in terms of their spiritual status, "sons of the Buddha" and fundamentally different from ordinary human beings (lu in Burmese).
   See also Paya (Hpaya); Sayadaw (Hsayado).
