London: Renowned Nepali singer, Ani Choying Drolma, enthralled nearly 1,500-strong audience at the Lakeside Country Club in Camberley on Sunday.

During the musical concert entitled ‘Inner Melody for Inner Peace,’ Ani Choying -also known as ‘the singing Nun from Nepal,’ presented a fusion of Himalayan Buddhist mantras, ritual chanting, and Nepali music. The programme aimed at supporting Nepal’s Manav Sewa Ashram’s building project, a charitable organisation dedicated to provide love and care to homeless adults and orphans.

Ani Choying sang timeless prayers like ‘Buddham Sharanam Gachhami,’ ‘Asatoma Sadgamya’ and Om Shanti Om. She asked audience to join her while she song a widely popular Nepali song which says ‘for a flower the world is full of flowers while for a thorn the world is full of thorns.’

She urged the audience not only to adopt children but elderly citizens living in various homes being run by the Manav Sewa Ashram. “Your generosity means a lot to needy people in Nepal and you will gain peace of mind and deep satisfaction,” she added.

Addressing the function, Ambassador of Nepal to the UK, Gyan Chandra Acharya, said that Ani Choying was a rare combination among charity, humanity and music. He said that Ani Choying was introducing Nepal to the world through music. He urged all to support the humanitarian campaign of Manav Sewa Ashram.

Founder of Manav Sewa Ashram, Ramjee Adhikari, said that various homes under Manav Sewa Ashram were currently providing shelter and humanitarian service to nearly 3,000 previously homeless people at 23 shelters across Nepal. He thanked all friends and well wishers for their ongoing support to the Ashram.

President of Manavsewa Ashram UK, Sunil Babu Khadka, urged all expatriate Nepalese as well as friends of Nepal to support the activities of Ashram. Your support will go a long way to help and support vulnerable homeless people and underprivileged children in Nepal,” he added.

Some one dozen Nepali organisations in the UK had joined forces to make the event a great success.

People from all over UK had arrived to take part in the concert and support the campaign of Manav Sewa Ashram.
