About the course

When things go well in life, it is relatively easy to stay happy, however when things deteriorate at work, home and in the world, it can prove challenging to feel secure or to remain calm and content.  Buddhist wisdom shows clearly how we can thrive amidst the uncertain and constant adversity we all face in our life.

This half-day course will emphasise meditation and mindfulness to gain personal experience of the ‘training the mind’ teachings (Tibetan ‘Lojong’) which offer clear, profound, and effective methods to transform the mind in a positive, meaningful direction in the face of life’s challenges.

About the speaker

Kelsang Zamling is a modern Buddhist monk and the Principal Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Glasgow.  He has been a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for many years and has taught in the United States and in the UK.  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.  Zamling is known for his practical approach, warmth and clarity and we feel very fortunate to have him as our teacher at KMC Glasgow.
