Abhidharmahṛdaya (C. Apitan xin lun 阿毘曇心論), or "Heart of Abhidharma," is an early attempt at a "systematic presentation of abhidharma according to the Sarvāstivāda school."[1]

The treatise is attributed to Dharmaśreṣṭhin, who was from the Gandharan region of Central Asia.[1]

This text is no longer extant in Sanskrit, but survives in Chinese translation.[1]
