Ven. Robina Courtin

Ven. Robina Courtin is a Buddhist Tibetan nun and teacher, being part of the Gelugpa lineage,

studying from Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.


Robina was born in Australia.

At the age of 23, already a hippy in the 60’s, she arrived to London and became involved politically

as an extreme feminist, looking for the truth and ignoring happiness. After several stormy years, at the age of 31,

she met Buddhism and her teachers – LamaYeshe and Lam Zopa. She went on to Tushita, India,

where she became a Buddhist nun, studying, practicing and confronting her mind.


Since then she has been going around the world, spreading the teachings of the Buddha,

in an articulated way, matching the Western mind which she got to know so closely.

One can find her talking to Google team in Boston or giving Buddhist teachings in Dharamsala,

as well as in Tao’s Center, Greece.
