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.
Full Membership has all the bells a whistles – library, soundfile archive, all the class notes and powerpoints, member only events, and the opportunity to get more involved with LTC by volunteering. Membership is for one year, single or family, and you will need to nominate two LTC members to sign for you.
A Soundfile or Library Subscription is for six months. Library subscription is just what it says – borrowing rights to our amazing library. Soundfile subscription is most suited to those who cannot visit regularly, as it gives you access to over 10 years of soundfiles and video teachings, including current courses and the LTC archive.
By applying for Langri Tangpa Centre membership you acknowledge your membership will entail both rights and responsibilities.
- You agree to follow the advice of our Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche in regard to centre matters.
- 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).
- You are aware of and agree to abide by the Langri Tangpa Centre policies.
- 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 membership. 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!
