The spread of the coronavirus has upended our daily lives. Here at LTC, we have been assessing how we can continue to benefit others in this new environment by continuing to provide meditation classes, pujas and teachings. We recognise that the Centre is an indispensable lifeline at all times, good and bad.
Effective from Sunday 22 March, Langri Tangpa Centre will be closed to students, visitors and volunteers. This was a difficult but necessary decision to protect the health of students, visitors, and teachers.
However, our full teaching program will be presented online via live streaming. We will be updating our online calendar with the links to the livestream where, at the scheduled start time, our LTC teachers will be live.
Please remember that social distancing is a continuous act of generosity and compassion for all. The LTC virtual mandala can become a digital net of light to hold our world together.
The Centre will be closed at least until the end of June 2020, the mid-year school holidays. We are preparing to stay closed until the end of the year if we need to, depending on community developments within Australia.
Our committee is going into social isolation and we will be having all our meetings online. Miffi and Eddie will be onsite, relegated to Bekandze’s cat enclosure, to look after the LTC grounds and the gompa. To protect Eddie, who is in an at-risk category due to his asthma, there is a strictly no visitors policy.

Langri Tangpa Centre has no paid staff – we are run entirely by volunteers. Our resident western teachers are accredited with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).
We rely entirely on the support of members, friends, benefactors and bequests. Classes are offered on a by donation basis, and these weekly donations and membership fees help to keep the centre flourishing.
