We are really looking forward to Tuesday evening, Lama Tsong Khapa Day, where we celebrate the life of the Da Vinci of the Tibetan renaissance. We will be doing a meditation on the seven wisdoms, making dedications, and offering all the tsa-tsas painted here at LTC.
**Tuesday is also the day to donate to the Merit Box Fund, as Lama Tsong Khapa Day is the international day for donations for this project. If you have a MERIT BOX tin, bring it in, or donate online or over the phone. Donations go to Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s Vast Visions and Dharma projects around the world. To date, over a million dollars worth of projects have been sponsored, and Langri Tangpa Centre has been a recipient of three of these grants!
The Sangha Wishing Tree in reception is looking better and better, filling up with auspicious baubles. So far we have collected $610 in donations to help our wonderful Sangha attend Rinpoche’s teachings in 2018. (Why not give a bauble and dedication to a loved one for Christmas?) All proceeds go towards helping our Sangha attend Rinpoche’s teachings in 2018.
Langri Tangpa Centre offers classes in meditation, yoga, emotional balance, mindfulness basics, Buddhist thought and practice, and regular teachings with touring Tibetan Lamas. Our centre is open to everyone with an interest in making their life happy and meaningful. There is no need to be a Buddhist to benefit from the courses on offer, and we encourage questioning and open dialogue.
Langri Tangpa Centre is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1982, and run entirely by volunteers. We are a teaching and meditation centre in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and provide a friendly and supportive environment for learning and putting into practice the teachings of the Buddha.
Langri Tangpa Centre is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an organisation of over 140 centres throughout the world, founded by Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. We seek to reflect their teachings throughout our extensive program, and to support our principal inspiration, HH the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.

We invite you to browse our catalogue and discover a wealth of Dharma! Our extensive library has grown thanks to the generous donations of LTC members and friends. It is also funded from proceeds from book sales in our Dharma shop. This means we can maintain an extensive collection and invest in rare or highly specialised texts.
Although only members of LTC can borrow from the library, visitors are welcome to browse before class or any time on a weekend when the shop is open. The catalogue is hosted by the amazing LibraryThing community.
