This week we are starting two new courses, and for now classes will continue as normal. If you are feeling even a little unwell, please stay home, as an offering of protection to all sentient beings.
Ven. Lhagsam is leading the 5-week beginner’s course Buddhism in a Nutshell, on Thursday mornings (10.30 am) and repeated on the following Tuesday nights (6.30 pm). Carolyn Mason will be leading From Theory to Practice, on Tuesday mornings (10.30 am) and repeated on Wednesday evenings (7 pm) to ease you into the in-depth Discovering Buddhism program and get a taste of the topics, especially relevant in such uncertain times.
Practices to purify the karmic causes of coronavirus on Sunday afternoons (2 pm). We will go through how to recite the mantras, what to visualise, and how to help oneself and protect our community and the world. All welcome.
Yoga classes are open to all and customised for all skill-levels. We have four classes a week on Mondays and Wednesdays (9.30 am & 6.30 pm). All classes are lead by qualified 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.
We are 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. 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!
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.
Buddhist philosophy is profound and vast, and once we get a handle on the theory, our real challenge is to integrate this wisdom into our everyday lives. How do we put the puzzle pieces together to bridge theory and practice? Discover how to integrate the essential points into your own life, how to reflect and meditate effectively on the topic, and enjoy a short video.

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.
