Singing nun raises money for Nepal
From Reuters – Buddhist nun, Ani Choying Dolma, a 37-year-old Tibetan-Nepali known as Nepal’s “singing nun”, has soared to global fame with her eight albums of Tibetan and Sanskrit meditation songs.
The income from her CD sales has helped Dolma build the Arya Tara School, which has 58 students drawn from poor Nepali families, including some from neighbouring India and Tibet. Dolma wants to set up a kidney transplantation hospital in Kathmandu in the memory of her mother, who died of kidney problems.
With audiences across Europe, Asia and the United States and more concerts planned in Germany this year, Ani might just achieve her dream.
