Our first week for the new year features an international tour with two evening teachings by Geshe Thubten Sherab on the Four Close Placements of Mindfulness, on Tuesday 30 January and Thursday 1 February. The talks are sequential, but you are welcome to come when you can.
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.
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.
The Four Close Placements of Mindfulness are on the body, feelings of levels of happiness, the mind, and phenomena. Mindfulness is a mental factor that holds on to an object of focus and prevents forgetfulness or loss of it. It functions somewhat like mental glue. The purpose of the four close placements is to generate renunciation and compassion.
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.
