LTC Policies

This is where you will find our world's best practice policies, the FPMT international policies, and general precepts we ask all our members to abide by. The five Buddhist precepts are the basis of ethics in all FPMT centers. The FPMT Handbook states: For the centers to offer a Dharma environment depends on each member of the community emphasizing Dharma in their own life. To facilitate this all those visiting or living in a center, while in the center are required to live within the basic five precepts. The five precepts are not to kill, steal, indulge in sexual misconduct, lie or take intoxicants (includes alcohol, narcotics and cigarettes).

LTC Mission Statement

Following the inspirational example of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Langri Tangpa Buddhist Centre (an FPMT affiliate) 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.

How We Got Started

Inta McKimm started the centre for Lama Zopa Rinpoche in 1982, and she ran it single-handedly for almost fifteen years. She financed the activities almost exclusively with her pension, and the suggested $5 donation remains unchanged since that time. When Inta died in 1997 some people suggested we close the centre until things settled down, but Inta's daughter Miffi thought that since LTC was her mother's life work, the most important thing was to ensure that it continue.

Attending the international CPMT meetings at Chenrezig Institute were over seventy directors and spiritual program co-ordinators (SPC's) from around the world. Experienced and dedicated people, some famous, some new, some struggling and many with boundless and very helpful advice.
