How Buddhism Helps

Explore essential aspects of Tibetan Buddhism, that guide our inner journey of both personal liberation and global harmony. Each class has a presentation on a key aspect of Buddhism, time for questions and a guided meditation to integrate the topic into daily life.

Everyday Dharma for Daily Life

Whether we are religious or not—we all want to make the most of our life and not be caught in wasting time on distractions! Discover how to make every moment of the day meaningful, regardless of work, and how to transform our mundane activities into the path to lasting happiness.

Meditation, Discussion & Chai

Meditation on Shakyamuni Buddha purification and blessing, alaternated with meditations on cleansing body, speech and mind! Join us for a relaxed, informal meeting every Sunday, beginning with a guided meditation, then a short Buddhist DVD and informal discussion, and ending with delicious chai tea and biscuits in reception.

Cleansing Body, Speech and Mind

Meditations to cleanse one’s body, speech and mind to direct our day in a positive manner. Ensure that what we do becomes of benefit and doesn't harm, what we say is useful and people listen to us, and our positive attitudes become stronger and clearer.

Healing Depression and Anxiety

In Buddhist psychology, unhappiness is viewed as a symptom of the afflictive emotions, and the root of these is the distorted way we conceive of ourselves. By recognising and developing a realistic appreciation of our innate human qualities, we will naturally be able to overcome our fears and become happier.

Mind Training Like the Rays of the Sun

with Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim

Teachings for learning how to work with difficult situations and people with compassion and wisdom. The mind training teachings are concerned with developing the altruistic mind of enlightenment, and deal with transforming our mental attitudes, especially with how to transform adversity into advantage. Not only do these instructions help us open our heart towards others, they also help us transform whatever difficulties come our way into something valuable.

Geshe Tenzin Zopa 2017

We are very excited to announce that Geshe Tenzin Zopa will return to Langri Tangpa Centre for public talks and weekend courses. Geshe Zopa ia an extremely popular teacher and writer whose tour last year with Phuntsok Rinpoche was so warmly remembered by all who had the good fortune to meet him. He is fluent in English, and will be teaching on "A Wise Heart for the Modern World".
