Happening this week
Monday 16 July is one of the holiest days of the Buddhist calendar! Any positive activities done today, on the anniversary of the Buddha’s first teaching, become very powerful, especially if they are done with an altruistic heart and for the long-term, not just this year or this life! We have a special Sutra recitation to celebrate First Wheel-Turing Day (6.30 pm).
Monday is also International Sangha Day, and we invite you to make a donation to our wonderful LTC nuns on our Projects & Causes page, and personalise your dedication! The LTC Sangha Fund helps our nuns attend teachings with Lama Zopa Rinpoche and other milestone events.
On Tuesday 17 July (6.30 pm) we start a 6-week Healing Anxiety and Depression course, based on Buddhist psychology, and one of our most popular course. This week is our monthly Tara Puja on Friday 20 July (7 pm) and Guru Puja on Sunday 22 July (6.30 pm).
What we do at the Centre
Langri Tangpa Centre offers classes in meditation, yoga, emotional balance, mindfulness basics, Buddhist thought and practice, and regular teachings with touring Tibetan lamas.
Our centre is 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.
Our 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.
Mind Training Like the Rays of the Sun is an accessible and highly relevant teaching for modern times, mind training helps develop the altruistic attitude, and transform adversity into advantage. These instructions help us to open our heart, develop wisdom, and overcome difficulty.
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.
