Resident Teacher,

The Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago is modern Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Zamling. Gen Zamling has been a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for many years, and has taught in the United States and in the UK. Gen Zamling completed an intensive 6 month Special Teacher Training Program with our General Spiritual Director, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, to further his qualifications as a teacher.

He is well-loved by his students, and sets an immaculate example of someone who has taken Buddha's teachings to heart. Gen Zamling is known for his practical approach, warmth, and clarity.

Branch Teachers


Under the guidance and instruction of our Resident Teacher, a number of our senior students also teach meditation and Buddhism at Kadampa Meditation Center Chicago's Oak Park and Wicker Park locations. By incorporating Kadampa Buddhism into their lives, each is able to present Buddha's teachings in ways that are clear and relevant to modern day life.
