Langri Tangpa Centre

Following the inspirational example of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Langri Tangpa Buddhist Centre is dedicated to serving others with kindness and wisdom, and to educating people in ways to reduce suffering and promote the development of a more kind, compassionate and peaceful human family.

Langri Tangpa Centre is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an international not-for-profit organisation devoted to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through teaching, meditation and community service.

We take our spiritual guidance and protection from His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, from Lama Zopa Rinpoche the Spiritual Director of the FPMT, and from the teachings of Lama Thubten Yeshe.
