Announcements


Saturday, September 14, 2019, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Location: Alberta Centre for Peace and Meditation

EVENT DESCRIPTION:
From September 6 to14, 2019, Gaden Samten Ling Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Society will host an Online Silent Auction Fundraiser. This is the first time the Society has used an online format for an auction. We are looking forward to the added fun and ease this new format will provide! It will allow a greater number of people the opportunity to participate in the auction, contribute to our Society, and acquire unique, high quality auction items.

The Society has carefully curated a number of very special items for you to choose from. For example, our very own Spiritual Director Kushok Lobsang Dhamchöe has created a beautiful piece of framed calligraphy. All items will be listed on the Online Silent Auction Site at www.32auctions.com/GadenSamtenLing.

The Online Silent Auction begins Friday, September 6 at 6:00 p.m. and ends Saturday, September 14 at 8:30 p.m. On the evening of the last day, Saturday, September 14, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Society will host a Fundraising Dinner with Tibetan Monks at the Society’s Alberta Centre for Peace and Meditation. In addition to Kushok, we will be honoured to enjoy the company of Khen Rinpoche Jampa Sopa, Abbot of Dzongkar Choede Monastery in India, and other monks from the Monastery. Khen Rinpoche is a very special friend of Kushok and our Society. Enjoy a delicious meal from Haweli Indian Kitchen and Bar. Bidding on the Online Silent Auction Site will end at 8:30 p.m., so you might even be able to take a prized auction item home with you!
