If you would like to support Langri Tangpa Centre and become a member, and enjoy all of the many individual benefits of membership, there are several options available to you. The Single and Family memberships are for those of you who can regularly visit the centre. If you are a distance student or overseas we recommend becoming an online friend. Sangha (ordained monks and nuns) enjoy a substantially discounted level of full membership, and a Friend option, as a way for Langri Tangpa Centre to support the sangha living in the west, with all the challenges that involves.
- Full Membership is for one year. After that you have an option to sign up again for another year, or to create a recurring membership at a discounted price. You will need to nominate two LTC members to sign for you.
- Online Friend is for six months, with the option to renew for another six month period, or create an automatically renewing account (also with discounts available).
By applying for Langri Tangpa Centre membership you acknowledge your membership will entail both rights and responsibilities, and that you have read, understood, and will abide by the Langri Tangpa Centre policies.
All visitors and members must abide by the Five Precepts whilst on centre property. The five precepts are to not kill, steal, indulge in sexual misconduct, lie or take intoxicants (includes alcohol, narcotics and cigarettes).
Members are asked to follow the advice of our Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche in regard to centre matters.
We also require that no LTC members practice Shugden. Information clarifying the history regarding the Shugden practice can be found on the FPMT website.
There are many benefits to becoming a Full Member of Langri Tangpa Centre. It is possibly the best investment you will ever make in your own long-term happiness! You receive online access to the soundfiles of all our classes, and library borrowing rights from one of the best Buddhist libraries in Australia. We make donations on your behalf to Rinpoche’s vast visions, to HH the Dalai Lama long life pujas, and to other holy projects around the world, and you share in the merit of these extensive offerings. We make regular dedications at our pujas for all of our members. You have access to the on-site retreat room, we help you plan your retreat and curate the reading list, and you are eligible for receiving sponsorship for retreat. In addition, you have priority and exclusive access to attend member’s only events with visiting lamas such as Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
Thank you for considering becoming a Member of Friend of Langri Tangpa Centre. Your contribution allows us to continue offering all of our many activities. You in turn can benefit the many members, students and visitors that rely on the Centre for a safe haven and a source of inspiration and education. Thank you!
