Our Resident Teacher

Gen Kelsang Rabten is the National Spiritual Director for Kadampa Buddhism in Australia, New Zealand, and South East Asia. Gen Rabten is also the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Brisbane and teaches all the main classes and courses at the Centre.

Gen Rabten has trained under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for over twenty-five years. His deep faith in Buddha’s teachings, and the sincerity of his practice inspire many people to embark on a meaningful and rich spiritual life.

Volunteering at the Centre

Kadampa Meditation Centre Brisbane is dedicated to bringing inner peace and happiness to the people of Brisbane and beyond. To fulfil this aim our Centre relies entirely upon volunteers – from those who drop in to the Centre to help out on occasion through to our dedicated managers and teachers.

If you have the wish to help out in any way please let us know! You don’t need to have any particular skills or make any regular commitment. Our volunteers are from all walks of life and help us with a vast range of tasks. Any help is welcome! Email info@meditateinbrisbane.org if you would like to help.


All of our Centre’s activities depend upon the kindness of our community. Every Kadampa Centre is completely run by volunteers and it is through the generous support of the community – by volunteering and making financial contributions – that we are able to offer classes and courses throughout Brisbane. If you wish to make a one-time or recurring donation to the Centre’s activities, you can do so at any time. Every donation regardless of size, is a significant contribution! Email info@meditateinbrisbane.org if you would like to make a donation.
