Two new courses begin this week: The beginner’s short course Everyday Dharma for Daily Life (Thursdays 10.30 am from 24 May) on goal setting to make your life most meaningful, bring lasting satisfaction and not become distracted by worldly activities.
The in-depth course The Spiritual Teacher (Wednesdays 7 pm from 23 May), explaining one of the most misunderstood and confusing topics – the role of the teacher/guru on the spiritual path.
In addition we have Tara Puja twice (Tuesday 22 may at 10.30 am and 6. 30 pm) and Guru Puja (Thursday 24 May at 6.30 pm) in the downstairs gompa. The week ends with a Tsa-tsa painting contemplative workshop (Sunday 27 May 2 pm) – no artistic skill required!
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.
