Australian-born Tibetan Buddhist nun Venerable Robina Courtin travels the world teaching Buddhist psychology and philosophy and helping those in need. Well-known for her work for 14 years with people in prisons in Australia and the US, including inmates on death row, Robina’s life and work is the subject of the award-winning documentary film Chasing Buddha (2001) and ABC’s Key to Freedom (2008).
Ordained since the late 1970s, Robina has worked full time since then for Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche's Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, a worldwide network of Buddhist centers and activities. Over the years she has served as editorial director of Wisdom Publications, editor of Mandala Magazine, executive director of Liberation Prison Project, and as a touring teacher of Buddhism.
"Not believing in the way things appear to us: you can't get more radical than that." Ven. Robina
