"According to Buddhism we all possess—innately—astonishing potential within our own being, right now, to be more happy, more wise, more loving, more kind."
This podcast was recorded in December 2013, during Venerable Robina Courtin's third visit to The Interdependence Project. You can access her 2012 talk at this link: http://www.theidproject.org/media/podcast/ven-robina-courtin-awakening-our-hearts-world-part-1-2
Venerable Robina Courtin was born in Melbourne, Australia, and brought up as a Catholic. She became active in the radical left in the 1970s, working mainly with a London-based support group for black prisoners and radical feminists. In November 1977, Robina went to Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal, where she was ordained as a monastic. Since then, she has lived as a Buddhist nun in the Tibetan tradition, founding The Liberation Prison Project, and traveling, teaching, and bringing the Dharma to people around the world, both in and out of prison. http://robinacourtin.com/
