2019 New Year highlights…
We invite you to come along to the Beginner’s Orientation (Tuesday 29 January, 6.30 pm) or Starting Point (Saturday 2 February, 2 pm). Both events are an ideal introduction to our centre and its programs, and an overview of Buddhist practice here in Brisbane. Come to either one (they are very similar in content, it’s mostly so we have an opportunity for both the evening and the daytime people).
International tour of the much-loved Geshe Tenzin Zopa, a Tibetan lama who is fluent in English, has a warm and enthusiastic manner, and is a master at presenting challenging philosophical topics as well as introducing the essence of Tibetan Buddhism for everyday life. Geshe Zopa will be presenting a comprehensive program of public talks, a weekend course, and ritual ceremonies. Geshe-la will also be giving a talk on the Gold Coast.
What we do at the Centre
Langri Tangpa Centre offers classes in meditation, yoga, emotional balance, mindfulness basics, Buddhist thought and practice, and regular teachings with touring Tibetan lamas. The regular weekly program of 3 day and 3-4 evening classes per week continues as usual (see below for details). All classes are by donation.
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.
About us and our lineage
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.
It is with much anticipation that we welcome back Geshe Tenzin Zopa for a 10-day visit and teaching tour at Langri Tangpa Centre. Fluent in English, Geshe-la shows us how to integrate Buddhism into everyday life. This is a precious opportunity to connect with an authentic teacher in an informal manner. An ideal introduction for first-timers to Buddhism, and a unique opportunity for more in-depth students. Geshe-la’s humour and gentleness carry across cultures and religion to speak directly to our heart.
There is a suggested amount so we can cover our costs, but please offer what you are comfortable with.
Suggested donation for the public talks and teachings is $20. No need to book, just come along!
The suggested donation for the weekend course of three teachings is $120 (or $50 for just one teaching). Bookings are appreciated so we can prepare enough notes.
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.
