Over the last week we have had a warm and welcome response to our newly live-streamed classes. All our courses have been able to continue online without a break! You can join a class for as little as $1, as most of our events remain by donation. Even though the centre is physically closed, the virtual world has opened up to become the Langri Tangpa Centre mandala – a digital net of light to hold our community together.
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.
Buddhist philosophy is profound and vast, and once we get a handle on the theory, our real challenge is to integrate this wisdom into our everyday lives. How do we put the puzzle pieces together to bridge theory and practice? Discover how to integrate the essential points into your own life, how to reflect and meditate effectively on the topic, and enjoy a short video.
Examine what the nature of the mind is, and how it creates all happiness and suffering. Learn to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes to create a positive and joyous mind!
Discover practices that develop our innate qualities of compassion. Learn to apply these techniques to generate bodhicitta, the mind of enlightenment, known as the very heart of Buddha’s teachings.
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.
