Dear Friends,

We are proud to present the 2024 ‘Art of Devotion’ Guru Seva online art auction, in honour of Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche!

This presentation represents the coming together of the extended global sangha, in an outpouring of devotion, and a recognition of Khenpo Rinpoche’s enduring blessings, anchored in physicality by his nuns in Nepal and Bhutan, and their supreme activity.

All proceeds from the auction will go towards the Marpa Foundation Nunnery Endowment, which serves to support the lives and activities of Rinpoche’s nuns in Nepal and Bhutan, together with their education, and the long-term stability of their monasteries, shedras and retreats, so that the influence of Rinpoche’s teachings and lineage may continue to increase and flourish.

The auction comprises art from several continents, traditional and modern, and it endeavours to offer something for everyone, while valuing quality over quantity.

This said, we would be delighted to include further treasures, which we can upload at regular intervals to keep the site fresh and developing. So, in case any artists or students feel inspired to offer something after seeing the presentation, and the variety of works, please feel free to contact us at: [email protected]gro.noitadnuofapram@enidualc

The auction will run from 10th February until end of 1st March, and the cut off time for all submissions is 23rd February.

We do hope that you enjoy this eclectic mix of creativity, and that you will feel inspired to take part, by making a bid, by pledging a donation, and by sharing this link far and wide!

May our activities be blessed, and may all beings be truly benefited!
