Careful study and contemplation of the Heart Sutra will lead us to a profound understanding of reality, through the correct understanding of emptiness. Although short, this sutra presents all the teachings necessary to attain the perfect state of Buddhahood. Even a small understanding of the empty and dependent nature of phenomena can revolutionize our thinking and have far-reaching consequences for both our present and our future peace and happiness. (First in a 5-week in-depth course, ONLINE)
Learn the disadvantages of selfishness and the advantages of cherishing others. Learn to employ the special techniques of mind training (lojong) to transform problems into happiness. (Second in an 8-week in-depth course, ONLINE & IN-PERSON)

Welcome to Langri Tangpa Centre!
Langri Tangpa Centre is a teaching and meditation centre in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. We provide a friendly and supportive environment for learning and putting into practice the teachings of the Buddha. LTC is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1982, and run entirely by volunteers.
Our centre is located on the southside of Brisbane. We hold classes both in-person and online. All our events are by donation. We don’t ever want financial considerations to be the reason you cannot come! There is a suggested donation of $10 per class, but there is no set amount – please offer what you are comfortable with. We thank you for your generosity. Your contribution ensures that Langri Tangpa Centre can continue to offer the program, pay the mortgage, and cover running costs.
At LTC we embrace diversity and equal opportunity with respect to race, religion, ethnicity, culture, gender, age, sexual orientation, and physical abilities. There is no need to be a Buddhist to benefit from our courses. We encourage questioning and open dialogue, and welcome everyone with an interest in making their life happy, helpful and full of meaning. Feel free to join a class, even if we are part way through the course.
