Hello panna,

Have you tried this yahoo group – set up specifically by Maung Lwin?

He describes the group as:
‘’ The Most Venerable Mingun Sayadaw of Myanmar (Burma), Bhaddanta Vicittasarabhivamsa (1911-1993), had written “The Great Chronicles of Buddhas” or the Myanmar version of the Pali Text 'Maha Buddhavamsa' on the 25 previous Buddhas who had made their appearances through out the various periods of the world cycles. The text was translated into English by a team of distinguished Buddhist Scholars and published by ‘Tipitaka Nikaya Sasana Organization, Myanmar’ in 1994 and re-printed in 1997 by the Selangor Buddhist Vipassana Meditation Society of Malaysia. The complete set consists of 6 volumes in 8 books (6" x 8") of which 2007 pages describe the biographical account of Buddha Gotama.
I am now attempting to present this masterpiece on Buddha Gotama to Internet users across the world, with one or two articles a week. It may thus take a number of years to complete the project. The first messages were posted on the New Year's day.

Try www.dhammadownload.com under Mingun Sayadaw.
You will see all the volumes in both English (The great chronicles of Buddha) and in Burmese (Maha Buddhawin).
