Episode 381 of 3777 episodes

We meet the international singing star, women's rights activist and Buddhist nun, Ani Choying Drolma. Escaping a life of poverty and family abuse in Kathmandu, Ani Choying took refuge at age 13 in a convent in the foothills of the Himalayas where she learned to sing and chant. Now a star in the Buddhist world, Ani Choying Drolma travels the world with her modern spiritual songs and melodic Buddhist chant, recording best-selling albums which she uses to fund her numerous humanitarian efforts.
