Monday 24 February is Losar – Tibetan New year! – and we are beginning the 14 days of celebrations with a special Losar Vajrasattva Tsog offering (6.30 pm). This was a practice very dear to Lama Yeshe, the founder of the FPMT and our centre, who passed away on this day in 1984. It is an opportunity to reflect on our priorities in life and Lama Yeshe’s emphasis on our developing a growing awareness of our potential for inner awakening.
On Saturday 29 February, a special Buddha Day where the results of everything we do are greatly magnified, we are holding a Virtual Pilgrimage (9 am) right here in our meditation hall! Come visit the eight great places of Buddhist pilgrimage from the comfort of a chair and in just a few short steps!
This Sunday 1 March is the Starting Point beginner’s afternoon (2 pm). It’s a great introduction to the centre, to find your way around our extensive program, and a nice way to introduce friends and family to your home away from home!
Yoga classes are open to all and customised for all skill-levels. We have four classes a week on Mondays and Wednesdays (9.30 am & 6.30 pm). All classes are lead by qualified instructors, and are a flat fee of $15 per session (cash only please). Enter through the doors at the street. All equipment supplied, but BYO water bottle.
We are open to everyone with an interest in making their life happy and meaningful. 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. Please feel free to come along, even if the course is part way through!
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.
Most of us will experience a point where we just want it all to stop. Even tasks we’re passionate about can become too daunting and we shy away or do them with a sense of obligation or resentment. When this burnout and fatigue strikes, there are steps we can take to get back on course and it’s simpler than you might think. Join us for a fascinating and practical combination of modern research findings and ancient practices to help you be at your best and still give your best to others.
No need to book, just come along! By donation. Suggested $10 a class, but there is no set amount, please offer what you are comfortable with.
Ever wondered where to start? Have a family member you would like to introduce to the centre? Come along to our beginner’s welcome and orientation, and enjoy a guided tour, short meditation, and an information session about the program and the centre. We share delicious chai tea afterwards, and you receive a free book to take home.
This event is free. Bookings appreciated but you can also just come along on the day!
Join us for a unique inner journey as we explore the Twelve Deeds of the Buddha’s life by enacting a traditional pilgrimage, with prayers, offerings and short readings from the sutras. Discover the stories, pictures and events from the time of the Buddha. This is a completion activity of “Discovering Buddhism”, and a wonderful occasion to enjoy the company of fellow students.

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.
