So many people view the Dalai Lama as a symbol of peace, humanity and compassion, and if those qualities aren't worthy of recognition, we don't know which ones are. Who knew he was an off-roader or closet car enthusiast, though? We recently discovered that the Dalai Lama Foundation has listed the 1966 Land Rover once used as transportation for the holy figure on eBay. The sale of the completely restored vehicle will go 100% towards the organization and its cause. The auction winner not only gets the immaculate vehicle, but also a three-day Buddhism study session with the Dalai Lama himself and a meeting with Sharon Stone. We hope the winner asks Ms. Stone what she was thinking making Basic Instinct 2... oh yeah, and enjoys his or her enlightening time spent with the Dalai Lama. We hear he's the Dalai-est of Lamas of ever.

      I would not buy a car from this Dalai Liar or Lama scoundrel. What a snake oil salesman!
      The Dalai Lama talked about peace and justice for the world, but what about peace and justice for those murdered by his good friends such as Shoko Asahara, Dr. Bruno Beger and Augustine Pinochet? The Dalai Lama is a major hypocrite and greatest fraud of the century. Sure he got a congressional medal, but the U. S. congress was never fooled by him. Bush may have been fooled by him, but then again an elephant could fool Bush. Why did Congress give him a medal? It was an ego boost. Congress gives Lama a medal for peace that he didn't deserve so Congress could say that they are thumbing their nose at China, when they know that giving Lama a medal is really a meaningless gesture. Congress doesn't really want to rile China. Congress could reprimand China about human rights abuses, but that might cause China not to invest in America or interfere with American investors making obscene profits in China with their virtual slave wages. No, Congress would rather play it safe and lie to you and themselves and honor a liar and scoundrel who pretends to be a holy man, but is no more holy than Josef Stalin. Anyone who mistakenly thinks that the Dalai Lama is a holy man, check out Salon.com with Chris Hitchins or see a picture history of this fake posing with terrorists and other criminals on:

      Careful folks....this is a big scam. This is very cheap and very, very sad. No one...no one will get three days with Holiness for purchasing a car! It is a scam like all those chant Cd's floting around out there with HH name on them....they are all fakes. The real deal is a lot harder to come by than just buying a car....right.

      It's not that he was an off roader. But there was not much road in Tibet back then.

      Cool -- I especially like the rear, fold-up jump seats that leave the floor wide open for cargo, or maybe even a mattress back there!

      But with a starting bid of $75,000, nearly 4 days into the auction, no bids. Doesn't look very promising...
