Centre Sangha


A Langri Tangpa Centre monk or nun (ordained Sangha) is a member of Langri Tangpa Centre who offers service to the centre on an ongoing basis no matter where he or she resides.

Langri Tangpa Centre is currently raising funds for our Sangha to attend upcoming teachings in Australia by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in 2018. You can donate here on our Causes and Projects page.

Sangha from all traditions are always welcome to attend teachings, meditations, pujas and any other event held at Langri Tangpa Centre.

Ven. Lhagsam is a registered FPMT teacher and a graduate of the Basic Program. She has 20 years experience in palliative care, and has been a Buddhist nun since 2000. She brings the insight and experience of both the wisdom of the Buddha and the modern medical field. She has helped many people (and her cat) through protracted illness and death, and conducts funerals for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.

Resident Western Teachers

Eddie Peet

FPMT Registered Teacher

Eddie has been teaching at Langri Tangpa Centre since 1997. Not shy of life's dirty reality, several tragic life experiences brought Eddie to Buddhism. He first met the Dharma when he attended meditation classes with Ven. Pende Hawter, the founder of Karuna Hospice Service. Eddie is a registered western teacher within the FPMT, and has attended advanced study programs in Buddhist Philosophy and practice. He has read almost every book in our library. Just ask him about the topic you are interested in, and he can point you the right direction!

Miffi Maxmillion

FPMT Registered Teacher

Miffi runs the spiritual program, and is an FPMT registered western teacher. She left behind a thriving haute couture and costume business in Melbourne, when her mother Inta (who ran LTC) became sick with cancer in 1997. Packing her bags for two weeks, she is still here 19 years later! Miffi was brought up a Buddhist and had the great good fortune to play with Lama Yeshe as a child, and his hook of compassion sustained her through the many rebellious stages of growing up. She readily admits to watching far too much TV and is an avid New Yorker magazine reader.
