Exciting events happening this week…

Our regular Drop-in Meditations (Sunday 23 & 30 June, 10.30 am) continue to be very popular, with around 30 people each week enjoying a couple of simple guided meditations, informal discussion, and a chai and social quality time together afterwards.
The centre takes a break for two weeks over the school holidays. We are closed from 1-14 July. We re-open on Tuesday 15 July with Medicine Buddha Puja, in the morning, and again in the evening.
Term two has new courses beginning for both beginners, in-depth students, as well as many new balancing emotions courses and workshops, based on Buddhist psychology, and relevant whether you are religious or not.

There is no need to be a Buddhist to benefit from the courses on offer, and we encourage questioning and open dialogue. We have a regular weekly classes are held in both the day and evening.

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.
Our pets mean the world to us, so we must use our strong relationship with them to connect our pets to the Dharma in this life, and help them as they reach the end of their life.
How we can help those who have just died? with the Sur practice we can channel our concern and grief to help the recently deceased on their onward journey.
By donation (suggested $20 an evening, but no set amount). No need to book, just come along!
Join us in reception for tea and biscuits before and after the teaching.

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.
