The auction is Ligmincha Institute’s main fundraiser for the year. We are gathering many wonderful Bon ritual and other dharma-related items to inspire our practice and connection to the precious teachings we receive from Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and other lamas and teachers. Included in the auction will be calligraphy from Tenzin Rinpoche, malas, pendants, statue, thangka and much more. At the auction you may find something that will be perfect for your shrine, home or personal use, plus have the satisfaction of knowing your contribution will help support the work of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and the Serenity Ridge Retreat Center.

We invite all local sangha, friends, and all who are attending the Summer Retreat, to join us. If you live at a distance and are unable to come, you can bid now on a number of special items listed on the Serenity Ridge website.
