One of the Buddha's first disciples was a blind man named Aniruddha. The Buddha himself washed and mended his clothes, fed him and made certain Aniruddha heard the teachings.
In order to continue this most excellent example set by Lord Buddha, the Dharma Access Project was launched. It is our sincerest wish that the Dharma be available to all persons, in particular the blind. For this reason we offer for free, upon request, bound Brailled copies of The Four Immeasurables and The Prayer of Shantideva as well as the Heart Sutra to all Dharma centers or individuals who would like one for a family member or friend who is blind.
For a small donation, we will customize your reuqests to suit your Buddhist tradition.
In this way the selfless motivation of Shantideva can be shared, "may the blind see forms."
We encourage you to contact us with your mailing address:
In addition to English, Brailled prayers are available in: Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and German. When contacting us, please do so in English. Donations, while not expected, would be gratefully accepted. Thank you.
May all who visit this site achieve unchanging happiness and realize the true Buddha nature of all beings; and, may this be of benefit to all sentient beings.
