In 2016, Khyentse Foundation funded Arjuna Pranidhi’s project of translating Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s “Heart of Compassion” into Arabic. After a year of hard work, the project was recently wrapped up and the book is now available online for free.

The members of an online Arab Buddhist community have collected the funds to print the book in Beirut, Lebanon. The book will be available in October 2017 in book stores in Beirut and Damascus at a nominal price, just enough to cover printing expenses with a margin to secure a second print.


“Such a treasure would not have been available to us without your support and the support Shechen, which gave permission,” said Pranidhi, who coordinated the translation.  “To all the team of Khyentse Foundation in the name of the emerging Arab Buddhist community, many thanks for your generosity.  I can’t find enough words to express my deep gratitude, thank you all!”
