“Explore Your Mind” by Ven. Robina Courtin. Spanish translation by Alma Ayon

In late January I had the wonderful experience of being the translator of the Ven. Robina Courtin for a week during her cycle of teachings in Bogota. It was a challenge since she speaks quickly, but I learned a lot being so close to her because she is an exceptional person filled with inspiring qualities. I think her teachings were fabulous and very suitable for our contemporary society.

Here I share the first conference entitled “Explore your mind” which was given at one of the best schools in Bogotá.

May you enjoy it and if you have questions, I’ll be happy to answer them.

 

 

 

My teachers

I’ve studied with several teachers, Tibetan, Western, Zen, Theravada. In this photo I am with my teacher Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche in Nepal.

 

My main teacher is Alan Wallace, who is a disciple of the Dalai Lama, from whom I have received teachings too.

Alan is a scientist who studies consciousness and emotions. He was a monk and he’s is one of the great thinkers of our century. The Dalai Lama is my ultimate role model, he is someone full of compassion and love for all beings, it shows when a teacher doesn’t cling to his ego and he is one of the few ones that give us this example.

 

 

 

This is a video of Alan (subtitled in Spanish) where you can see him talking about emotional and mental balance.
