First Paris wants to help drunken elephants and now the Dalai Lama’s Land Rover will hook you up with Sharon Stone? What the hell is going on?
The Dalai Lama’s 1966 Land Rover, once used as the official transportation for His Holiness, is up for grabs on Ebay. 100% of the proceeds from this sale will go towards the Dalai Lama Foundation; which promotes and develops projects and curricula for ethics and peace.
Here’s where things get interesting — obviously, you win the auction, you get the Land Rover (which appears incredibly well taken care of for its age). In addition, you also receive a three-day Buddhism study session with the Dalai Lama in India (travel expenses not included), and a dinner date with Sharon Stone at The Missing Peace Art Exhibit show.
Bizarre. I think a dinner date with famed Buddhist Richard Gere would have been a bit more appropriate. Stone’s actions with wearing fur on a regular basis just don’t seem to gel with the Buddhist philosophy of compassion and love for all things. In fact, in a speech in August, the Dalai Lama said, “I am ashamed and don’t feel like living when I see all those pictures of people decorating themselves with skins and furs.” How is Stone in association with this His Holiness?
