Currently the main activity of the KYC is to facilitate a direct exchange between global youth and HH Karmapa and other Buddhist masters who wish to teach and connect with young people throughout the world.
One way this connection can be made is through video interviews. Various Buddhist masters are asked questions by the community on topics such as the relevance of art and sports in Buddhist practice, the relationship between love and attachment, the use of the internet in spreading teachings, and how to preserve Dharma in the West. So far, the list of interviewees include some of the most popular teachers of Vajrayana Buddhism including: His Holiness Karmapa, His Holiness Sakya Trizin, Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.
Karmapa Youth Community is dedicated to promoting youth projects inspired by HH Karmapa and invites feedback and suggestions by the global community either here or through our facebook page.
