The Sevenfold Puja (in Sanskrit and English)

by Various

Here's a recording of a special puja from the American Order Convention 2008. It's unusual to hear the Sevenfold Puja performed in Sanskrit and English, so a real treat for all ritual lovers courtesy of Satyadhana, the puja leader. And it's all augmented by some rather lovely harmonic chanting of the Manjushri (Manjugosha) mantra. There's also a special section of chanting at the end, wishing long life for Punya, a much-loved member of the Order who was seriously ill at the time of recording.

Recording made at Jikoji Retreat Center, California, 2008
