On March 20, 2010, the first BLHP awareness event was held at Tai Pei Buddhist Centre, Singapore. “An Evening of Appreciation & Awareness” gathered more than 80 volunteers, sponsors, and friends of the BLHP to hear Rinpoche discuss the importance of translating the words of the Buddha, to ask questions, and to share their appreciation of the project.
“Now there are Croatians, Czechs, Poles, Texans, New Yorkers—these vast numbers of people who suddenly have at least an amazing curiosity toward the Buddhadharma. To introduce the words of the Buddha to them, as a Buddhist, as a follower of the Buddha, I don’t think there’s anything better that one can do.” —Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
