Sharon Stone - Sunday 13th November 2005

DALAI LAMA'S LAND ROVER TO BE AUCTIONED OFF A vintage Land Rover once owned by Buddhist leader the DALAI LAMA is to be auctioned off on website eBay.com. The spiritual hero owned the army green vehicle from 1966 to 1975, and it was recently named among the 10 most exclusive Land Rovers in the world by Land Rover Life magazine. The highest bidder at the 10-day online auction, which begins on Friday (02Nov07), will also win the chance to sit next to actress Sharon Stone at an upcoming Dalai Lama Foundation gala in San Francisco, California and meet with the Buddhist guru as part of a private teaching session in India next March (08). Eric Gazin of auction house Auction Cause, the company behind the sale of the vehicle, says, "This is an amazing item that rarely becomes available at auction. "This was the Dalai Lama's daily transportation vehicle before he passed it on to his brother, who, in turn, donated it to the Dalai Lama Foundation here in California. "We understand the Dalai Lama used this Land Rover to visit Buddhist encampments in the Himalayas. Despite it's age, it's in great shape and the transmission has just been re-done, among other things." The auction house reserve price on the vehicle, Sharon Stone meet-and-greet and Dalai Lama teaching session package is $75,000 (GBP37,500). It is expected to fetch more than double that amount. All proceeds will go to the Dalai Lama Foundation in California. (KL/WN Worldwide - October 2007 DALAI LAMA 70th birthday at the MCI Centre Washington DC, USA - 13.11.05 (4 images)
