He first organised a Pali speaking panel at Sitagu during the Theravada Buddhist universities conference. Another one took place at Mahamakut Buddhist University in Thailand in the same year. Since then Sri Lanka, Thailand and Myanmar have organised a few such confidence or panel. Actually a conference of international Pali speaking scholars took place also in Taunggyi last year to mark his birthday.
