Rob Nairn is a well-known and greatly appreciated teacher of meditation, mindfulness and Tibetan Buddhism in Southern Africa and internationally in the UK, USA and Europe. He is a successful author with several books on these subjects including Tranquil Mind, Diamond Mind and Living, Dreaming, Dying. He established the Kagyu Samye Dzong Centres in Southern Africa with Akong Tulku Rinpoche and was instrumental in setting up Mindfulness UK and the first Mindfulness MA course at Aberdeen University.
He left a successful legal career as Professor of Law and Criminology at the University of Cape Town in 1980 to follow his spiritual path and entered a four-year cloistered retreat at Samye Ling Tibetan Centre in Scotland, training in meditation and compassion practices.
His combination of incisive analysis drawn from his legal background, his intense study, respect for Buddhist teachings and awareness of Western psychology makes him a unique teacher of meditation practice in the West, with a practical and down-to-earth approach.
Buddhism teaches that the mind is the source of all unhappiness and Rob Nairn has spent a lifetime bringing the insights of Tibetan Buddhism to show how the mind works and how it is possible to tame it, allowing the discovery that happiness, wisdom, compassion and clarity are inherent qualities in all of us.
