Bidding is drawing to a close. Only a few hours remain. So far more than 500 people have taken part. Thank you all for participating with such enthusiasm.  

If you have any questions about particular items you still have time to drop me a line using the "Ask a question about this item."

If you've yet to jump in, here's how you do it: You can either register to become a member of the auction audience and simply observe the proceedings or you can add a credit card and become an actual bidder. Here's what you do:

  • first you register: follow the "Register to Bid" link at the top of this home page to the right of the login fields.
  • then you bid: go to the item of your choice and, if you've already provided your credit card information, simply "Bid Now." If you've yet to do so, simply click "Add Credit Card". Once you've added a credit card "Bid Now" will automatically appear. You can also add a credit card and become a bidder by clicking the "My Account" button in the upper right.

The Annual Online Auction: Where Giving and Receiving Meet

We hope that you, like us, find the auction an enjoyable way to support our efforts: every purchase you make benefits the Foundation's ongoing work. Both Buddhadharma: the Practitioner's Quarterly and the soon-to-be launched Mindful magazine are examples of the types of initiative the Shambhala Sun has been able to mount with the assistance of fundraising. The proceeds from this auction will be directed similarly.

We are tremendously grateful to auction donors - the advertisers, contributing artists and writers, and supporters - whose generosity in each of our six years has allowed us to present this auction.
