Even though the reception is closed to the public, we are slowly opening up the main gompa for guided meditations and pujas to be held in person. You must still register online, as numbers are restricted by covid-19 health guidelines. We encourage people to wear a mask, and if you are feeling even slightly unwell, please stay home.
Our full teaching curriculum remains 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.
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. We hold regular weekly classes in both the day and evening. Please feel free to join a class, even if we are art way through the course!
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.
Direct and in-depth teachings on Lojong (thought transformation) to help deal with uncertain times and the COVID-19 crisis.
The ability to keep a relaxed yet focused mind is an essential skill in these uncertain times. Geshe-la shares his vast experience with characteristic humour and humility. These teachings are freely offered. We invite your consideration in making a donation towards costs and offerings.
Uncertain times are upon us, and western nun Ven. Robina shares the Buddha’s teachings on how to live with a courageous heart, free of fear.
How do we find peace when everything around us seems so crazy? Whether we are overwhelmed by troubled relationships, the spread of coronavirus, loss of a job, the hectic demands of family life or the uncertain state of global affairs; we can undo destructive habits of reacting to our external world.
Ven. Robina will lead three Saturday workshops (six teachings in all) addressing our anxiety about change, uncertainty and impermanence, sharing her extra-ordinary life experience, and giving us courage to be true to ourselves and live the best life that we can.
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.
