Pau Cin Hau

Pau Cin Hau is the founder and the name of a religion followed by some Tedim and Hakha Chin in the north-western part of Burma.

Pau Cin Hau was born at Lailui Khua, in the Tedim Khuapi Uksung in 1859; and lived until 1948. He started a religious movement based on the worship of a god known as Pasian.

He also invented a script known as "tual lai" ('local script') or "zo tual lai",[1] now called Pau Cin Hau. Today, apart from the Pau Cin Hau system for transcribing Chin languages, there is also a written language for them using the Roman alphabet.

Pau Cin Hau's religion is also known as "Laipian" ('script religion'), and Pau Cin Hau is also known as "Laipianpa" ('script religion creator').
