How We Got Started

Inta McKimm started the centre for Lama Zopa Rinpoche in 1982, and she ran it single-handedly for almost fifteen years. She financed the activities almost exclusively with her pension, and the suggested $5 donation remains unchanged since that time. When Inta died in 1997 some people suggested we close the centre until things settled down, but Inta's daughter Miffi thought that since LTC was her mother's life work, the most important thing was to ensure that it continue.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche is the Spiritual Director of LTC (and of the FPMT). He has dedicated his life to bring the benefits of Tibetan Buddhism to the west. He tries to visit the centre every 3-4 years. His inspired presence and teachings have changed the lives of many thousands of students.

Originally called "Chenrezig City Centre", Rinpoche re-named the centre after Geshe Langri Tangpa, a Kadampa master renowned for his practice of exchanging his happiness for the sufferings of others. The practice of lojong - giving away ones happiness and imagining taking on the suffering of others - was at the heart of the centre, and Inta lead many retreats and classes based on practicing this compassionate method.

When Inta died, Miff took over the day-to-day running of the centre, and Eddie began leading the regular classes and meditations. The committee grew as more people became involved. The classes grew as more people became interested in Buddhism. The library grew as people donated more books. What seemed to shrink was the size of the house!

After an exhaustive 4-year search, we finally found the church building at Camp Hill. Due to the thorough and realistic business plan prepared by the LTC committee (all volunteers), we received an amazing $600,000 anonymous donation. This enabled us to purchase the current property. The mortgage papers were actually signed during the visit of HH the Dalai Lama to Australia in 2007. The first major activity held in our new premises was the Holy Relic tour. This blessed the building, and brought many more students and volunteers into the LTC family.

Since then the program has grown, and the building has transformed into a unique blend of 1940's minimalism, Tibetan artistic richness, mixed with a light-hearted slightly quirky Queensland flavour!
