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.
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.
9 am – 1 pm. Run by the LTC volunteers, and stocked with Dharma and meditation books, and all your ritual needs. Incense from Tibet, Nepal and Japan (including smokeless incense), meditation cushions and stools, Tibetan ritual implements, chai tea, cards and a wide range of thangkas, printed and hand painted.
Langri Tangpa Centre acknowledges and pays respect to the Jagera and Turrbal people, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our centre resides. We pay our respects to Elders, past, present and emerging, and acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who visit our Centre, with respect and gratitude.

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.
Interested in courses on Buddhism, meditation and emotions, but unsure where to begin? Join our beginner’s welcome (talk, tour & tea).
During our time together, you’ll meet our volunteers, have a guided tour, learn how to get involved, and be introduced to key concepts of Buddhist thought and practice. Enjoy a short guided meditation, information about the program and the centre, delicious chai tea afterwards, and free book to take home.
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.
