Special events this week…
This week we have two new course on balancing emotions, based on Buddhist psychology. Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life on Thursdays (10.30 am), and a Healing Anxiety and Depression workshop this Saturday 19 October (1 pm – 4.30 pm).
This Friday night is the short monthly guided Vajrasattva Cleansing Meditation (7 pm). To finish the week in a wonderful way, Geshe Tsultrim is here on Sunday 20 October (1.30 pm – 4.30 pm) to continue his gentle and wise teachings on Mind Training Like the Rays of the Sun. All welcome!
Both visa applications for Geshe Sherab were denied, so it is with great sadness that we have been forced to CANCEL this tour. See the calendar, or details below, for the REPLACEMENT PROGRAM.
Open to all and for all skill-levels, regular yoga classes on Mondays and Wednesdays (9.30 am and 6.30 pm). The yoga classes are lead by qualified yoga 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.

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!
About 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.
All replacement events are by donation (suggested $10), but no set amount. No need to book, just come along!
This evening we will recite the Diamond Cutter Sutra together as a group, so we can create the much needed merit for future tours and visits from our precious Geshes. Eddie Peet will also give a short talk on the extraordinary discovery of this sutra.
Eddie Peet will give a short explanation of the analogies in the verse at the end of the Diamond Cutter Sutra:
“So you should view this fleeting world —
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream,
A flash of lightening in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.”
After the break we will recite the Diamond Cutter Sutra together.

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.
