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.
Join us for the best Buddhist party ever! This all-night ceremony is very powerful in removing obstacles and reinvigorating your Dharma practice.
It is a little different from the regular Tara Puja. As well as long mandala offerings, we have homages and prostrations, circumambulation of the holy objects, and mantra recitations for each of the 21 Tara’s.
The first session will be especially dedicated to perfect human rebirth of George Palmer, a major LTC benefactor, who passed away in September.
You can even join us later in the night if you have prior engagements! Or wake up really early and join us for the final morning session!

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.
