About Us

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.

There is no need to be a Buddhist to benefit from the courses on offer. We  encourage questioning and open dialogue, and welcome everyone with an interest in making their life both happy and meaningful. Feel free to join a class, even if we are part way through the course.

We hold regular weekly classes in both the day and evening. There are several in-person meditation classes during the week, led by the western nuns. Our full teaching curriculum is offered online.

The virtual world has opened up to become the Langri Tangpa Centre mandala  – a digital net of light to hold our community together. You can join a class for as little as $1, as all our events are by donation.


Proudly Affiliated with the FPMT

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.

VEN. ROBINA COURTIN
When We Work On Our Minds We Can Handle Anything

Happiness is the mind that is free from junk: clear, blissful, happy and stable. The Buddhist expertise is the mind, and its phenomenal potential.

A calm mind can be a busy, engaged mind. What causes the problems isn’t a busy mind, it’s when the busy mind is caught up in fear and worry. “…that’s the stuff that causes the misery. But if you fill your mind with thoughts about being useful to others all day, and being content with yourself, you don’t have a problem!”

Ven. Robina will lead three Saturday morning teachings, sharing key aspects of Buddhist ‘mind-training’ practices, and the resilience which help us transform problems into opportunities, and maintain a peaceful mind in the face of life’s challenges.

Saturday 13, 20 & 27 March

9 am – 11 am
(ONLINE exclusive series)

Langri Tangpa Centre Library

Discover Our Online Library Catalogue

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.
