Baybayin and Gat Andres Bonifacio

In commemoration of the 152nd birth anniversary of Gat Andres Bonifacio, Father of Philippine Revolution, a gem of a book from 1939, written in our ancient syllabary Baybayin no less, “Maiikling Salayhay – Short Biographies” from the seminal “Sinupan ng Wikag Tagalog” by Jose N. Sevilla and Aurelio Alvero, with illustrations by M. Ronquillo. Brownie points and bragging rights to the first five people to translate the baybayin text correctly. We will publish your names and answers.

Advisory: the Lopez Museum & Library, and the Roberto M. Lopez Conservation Center are closed today for the National Holiday commemorating the birth anniversary of Andres Bonifacio (1863-1897), the Father of Philippine Revolution.

  1. Itanim sa iyon puso na
    ang tunay na kahalagahan
    ng puri’t kaginhawahan ay ang ikaw’y mamatay
    dahil sa ikaliligtas ng inang-bayan.
