How to make your life most meaningful and collect mountains of merit

Langri Tangpa Centre is run entirely by volunteers, and has been for over forty years. It is thanks to the efforts and dedication of the volunteers that LTC continues to flourish.

There is much that goes on behind the scenes to ensure the centre runs efficiently and people continue to feel relaxed and well looked after. Becoming part of the LTC volunteer community means you can benefit countless others by helping to keep LTC running smoothly and safely!

We invite you to consider the positions listed here. They are for a great variety of skill-sets, and have a varied and flexible commitment of hours.

Transform your skill-set into the bodhisattva path

Our aim is for you to find the role you shine at and that you love, and help you transform it into the path to enlightenment!

Help at a Special Event

Would you like to join the team for one-off events? We need many helping hands for one-off events and festivals. This is a great way to connect to the broader community, and to share with others the precious jewel that is LTC.

Join us at the Brisbane Pride Festival stall in New Farm park to support the LGBTIQA+ community! We will have a small LTC community stall with brochures and information to hand out. This is the first time LTC has been involved in Pride, and we invite you to come and join the LTC family under our new Bodhisattva Pride banner. We need lots of volunteers to help!

Open Day only comes around every two years, and when it does we need help with ushers, making and serving chai, information stalls, guided tours, set-up of tables, videoing the teachings, and help on reception and in the shop.

A day at the Powerhouse looking after the LTC stall. Our display is mostly of free books, Mandala Magazines and information, so there is no ‘selling’ or till to manage. You will have a chance to listen to the events on in the main area, and have a wander around the festival.

Do you love your LTC? Have you benefited from attending the Centre in any way? Would you like to share that benefit with others? Become part of the face of LTC by welcoming visitors to the Centre and to the Dharma and all the Buddhas will smile upon you. As our Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche says, this is the best way to enjoy our life, it is the most fulfilling.

Are you compulsively methodical? Are you patient, task focused and are you able to draw upon your own mindfulness practice when working with computers? Do you wish to practice the ultimate generosity of sharing and preserving the Dharma?

Help create the mandala! By developing and nurturing our dedicated volunteer team you directly support the flourishing of the Dharma and all the students who benefit from it.

Protect and strengthen your Dharma practice by offering respect to the texts. Offering brocade creates merit for realisations and future dharma resources.

If you want to nourish your relationships from this life to the next, and to always have the support of Sangha, can you help administer our membership renewal system and ensure the steady support of your LTC? This role requires an exceptional eye for detail and a high degree of administrative and data processing skills.

You can nurture Lama Yeshe’s ‘family feeling’ right here in Langri Tangpa Centre and become the ‘word of mouth’ of the Buddha. Capture the richness of Langri Tangpa Centre life and share it with all our members and friends who cannot physically come to the Centre or events. Help LTC become an international presence and weave the historical fabric of the Centre’s 30 years of growth and success.

Do you want to secure the full benefit of your practice without degeneration? This job might seem small and inconsequential but the results are enormous! Just as all those coins add up to being beneficial for the Centre, so do all your everyday virtuous actions add up to achieving enlightenment.

Help create the causes and conditions for all success in your dharma studies! Create the necessary mountains of merit so you can gain realisations from your study and practice. There is no higher form of generosity than providing the Dharma. You are opening the door to enlightenment for every person who walks into LTC.

Do you always want to have an abundance of Dharma resources and bring the unexpected joy of a Dharma ‘show bag’ to new members?

Do you want to always have access to the teachings and closeness to your guru? Do you have infinite appetite to revisit the teachings in the editing process? Do you have a keen ear and an eye for detail? Do you like working at your own pace in your own space?

If you want to remove your obscurations to enlightenment, and you have a love of Dharma objects, can you commit to a few hours per week to clean the altars and holy objects?

This is an easy, contemplative task. No skills are required but discretion and confidentiality are a must. This task develops discriminating wisdom, especially of the speech. It protects (guards against) abandoning the Dharma which is one of the heaviest negativities.

Your role of coordinating our register of precious Wheel-Turners is one of our easiest jobs. You create mountains of merit by rejoicing in the generosity of LTC Members who pledge monthly donations to pay off the LTC mortgage.
