We have implemented a COVID-safe plan at LTC, and review it in relation to current updates, including the latest COVID cluster for the greater Brisbane area. Our in-person events stringently adhere to physical distancing and hygiene practices and each event has a thorough cleaning afterwards. We have a 22 visitor limit in the gompa, and all our seating is assigned and spaced appropriately. When you attend in-person, you will be asked questions whether you have recently been in any hotspots identified in the latest cluster. You are strongly encouraged to wear a facemask, and we have them freely available at the door for anyone who needs.
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 masks are required for pujas. 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.
Take an in-depth look at the Buddha’s radical wisdom that shows us how to use every situation – pleasant or unpleasant, good or bad – on the path to enlightenment.
Be guided in the special techniques of mind training (lo-jong) to transform problems into happiness, and confidently embrace all challenges. The course is suitable for both the committed beginner and more established students.
You are most welcome to come along to the first few classes and see if the course suits you. If you miss a class, please email us for links to catch up with the soundfiles.

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.
