Robina Courtin was born in Melbourne, Australia, and brought up as a Catholic. She studied classical singing until her early twenties, then went to London in 1967, living there for four years. She became active in the radical left, working mainly with a London-based support group for black prisoners. In the early ’70s she became a feminist and returned to Melbourne in 1972 to work with other radical feminists.
In November 1977 Robina went to Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal, where she was ordained. Since then, she has lived as a Buddhist nun in the Tibetan tradition, traveling, teaching, and bringing the Dharma to people around the world, both in and out of prison.
