Khyentse Foundation Turns Fifteen
To mark the occasion of Khyentse Foundation's 15 year anniversary, we commissioned French animator Marion Dupas to create this short introduction to the story of the foundation.
We couldn't think of any better way than animation to tell the story of how the foundation came to be and what preceded it. This 2 minute video illustrates the development of Rinpoche's mandala from his youth to today.
We hope you enjoy it. There will be versions in voice-overs by other artists and in other languages coming soon.
