The Young Buddhist Project was born out of a weekend event held in 2008 to tackle the lack of young people in Triratna.

In this instalment from our '5 Years of The Buddhist Centre Online' series we focus in on different aspects of this project: the Young Buddhist Co-ordinator, event coverage and the Young Buddhist movement across the Triratna world!

On the evening of Urgyen Sangharakshita's funeral and burial, after the departure of most of the 1,200 guests, those who remained gathered together to perform a special, final sevenfold puja and close an extraordinary day.

Padmavajra led the devotional ritual, specifically dedicated to Padmasambhava. In this extract we hear Surata reading verses to Vajrasattva known as 'The Confounder of Hell', followed by a rousing version of the Great Guru of Tibet's mantra.

Voices were uplifted and many offerings made: to say a last farewell with heartfelt thanks to the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Community.

Recorded on Saturday the 10th of November 2018, at Adhisthana.
