In 1996, a few dedicated young men, with the concept of spreading Buddhist Education and Meditation, established an ad-hoc committee with the objective to register an association. The efforts started by Bro. Lee Swee Poh, Sis. Liaw Shuh Shih, Bro. Liaw Fern Chan, Sis. Lee Su Miin, Sis. Chan Siew Fong and Bro. Lee Tian Chi, Seremban Prajna Buddhist Association was successfully established on 7 March 1997. The first batch of executive committee members was elected and led by Chairperson, Bro. Lee Swee Poh.
Under the leadership of Bro.Lee Swee Poh, Young Buddhist Fellowship was officially established. Seremban Prajna Buddhist Association joined Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia on 1st January 1998 and became one of their flagships.
Although Seremban Prajna Buddhist Association has no own a building yet, the members were grateful for being able to organise their activities at Pusat Buddha Wah Yan and Jing Ye Buddhist Association. Later on, Seremban Prajna Buddhist Association and YBAM Negeri Sembilan Liaison Committee worked together to rent a unit at shop house to organise its activities. In 2002, they both worked together once again to restructure a house and turned into their premises.
In 2005, in order to develop further, the association moved its operation to Wisma Lee Geok Lin. After 3 years, due to the change of ownership, the association stopped its operation and move to a residential area. From 2009 till now, one of the executive committee, Mr Wong Kim Choy donated his 3rd storey shop house to be used for activities.
From the beginning, Seremban Prajna Buddhist Association has been organising few Buddhist Youth Camps continuosly, Meditation classes and short courses such as (Heart Sutra) Study Group, (India Buddhism History) Study Group and etc. Every week, there will be Saturday Study Group or Dharmma Talk and Friday Meditation Class. Once in every month, there will be a cleaning activity, not only to clean the premises, but also to clean the heart of the committee members.
In 2005, an adjustment was made to its activities. A few activities has been added such as Tuesday Yoga Practice to help those involved in meditation class to relax their mind and body. Besides, there was Sharing of Dramas organized once a month, Buddhist hymns singing twice a month and Sutra Chanting once a month.
From 2012, Seremban Prajna Buddhist Association also organise Prajna Sutra and Pu Men Pin Chanting Session , every month either on the 1st or 15th of lunar calendar. There is an advance meditation class which lasted for 6 hours, to be organized once a month. Till today, many groups of youth has been trained and exposed to all kinds of Buddhist activities. Dharmma Talk Series have been organised and many masters has been invited to organise Buddhist activities, as part of the effort benefited to everyone where most of them are able to listen and learn from the Dharma.
At the same time, due to the premise’s space limitation, big event such as camps might need to borrow other place. Recent years, Seremban Prajna Buddhist Association main focus is to find a suitable location to build a permanent premise.
