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.
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. Feel free to join a class, even if we are part way through the course.
We hold regular weekly classes in both the day and evening. There are several in-person meditation classes during the week, led by the western nuns. Our full teaching curriculum is offered 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.
Run by the LTC volunteers, and stocked with Dharma and meditation books, and all your ritual needs. Incense from Tibet, Nepal and Japan (including smokeless incense), meditation cushions and stools, Tibetan ritual implements, chai tea, cards and a wide range of thangkas both printed and hand painted.
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.

Sunday 29 November (9 am) Q&A with Geshe-la afterwards
Cultivate the positive qualities of compassion and kindness, avoid burnout, and put in place strategies to deal with anger and attachment.
Discover how to cultivate the positive qualities such as loving-kindness and compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity. These universal qualities are essential for creating harmony, within the family, in the workplace, and between countries. They are skills we can all develop – there is no need to be Buddhist, or even religious, to appreciate their value and enjoy their benefits. In the context of discussing these practices we will also look at how to deal with anger and attachment.

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.
