If you are fan of Tibetan chants and music, you may have heard this name, Ani Tsering Wangmo (Ani is a prefix added to the name of a nun in Tibetan Buddhism). I have posted many post about another Tibetan nun Ani Choying Drolma and her Albums. this is my first post about Ani Tsering Wangmo . I thought many times, after listen her album "Alokhe", that i will also write a post about Ani Tsering Wangmo. So here is the post about her.
So lets back to Ani Tsering Wangmo, she was born in Lhasa,Tibet and became a nun at the age of twelve. She joined the Yuloko Jetsun Ling Nunnery in Yanglashöe after fleeing Tibet in 1991 and arriving in Nepal.
Upon completing the traditional three-year retreat in 1996, she began and continues to work on the Ewam Pecha (religious text) project, collecting and digitizing the pechas for Gochen Tulku Rinpoche of Ewam.
Currently, she resides at Ewam Sang-ngag Ling in Montana where she has learned English. She continues to support Rinpoche's many worldwide projects. her albums see inside..
Ani produced her first album "Turquoise Leaf" in 2000, which was recorded in the US. It was in the traditional Tibetan chant genre, and based on the Buddhist chants from nunnery. The album was well received in the US. In 2004, she recorded the "Laughter of the Dakinis", based on Longchen Nyingthig Chöe practice.
Except from this two albums, she have another six albums and all the profits made by the sale of Ani's six CDs will be donated to three causes as below. So here you can listen two Chants by her in Album "Alokhe" first song is Heart Sutra Mantra and second is Chenrezig Mantra. This song is post here only for promote her albums.
medical clinic in Tibet, The proceeds from the Immeasurable Joy, the Gyaling, and the Immeasurable Equanimity CDs are all for the benefit of a medical clinic in Tibet.
This clinic is for Tibetans who have very little money but need medical care.
The Yulokö Jetsun Ling Nunnery in Nepal, The proceeds from the CD, Compassion will go toward the Yuloko Jetsün Ling nunnery, in Nepal. This nunnery is under Gochen Tulku Rinpoche’s care. For half of each year the nuns are in solitary retreat in their rooms. For the other half of the year they study Dharma under the guidance of Rinpoche’s brother, Namchak Khenpo.
The Ewam Magadha Garden of 1000 Buddhas, The proceeds from the CD, Immeasurable Loving Kindness, will go toward the Maghada Garden. Gochen Tulku Rinpoche chose the name, "Maghada" because it is the district in India in which the holy land of Bodhgaya is located. He intends that the Magadha garden in America eventually be like a Western Bodhgaya.
At the center of the garden is a large statue of Yum Chenmo (the Great Mother) also known as Prajñaparamita. She will be surrounded by the thousand buddhas of this age. A thousand trees will be planted there, and a thousand stupas as well. They will all be arranged in the shape of a giant Dharma wheel, with many flowers, walkways, and an arched bridge. All of this is surrounded by large mountains in every direction, and the vast Montana sky, currently being built in Arlee, Montana. Her Six Albums are:
Immeasurable Loving Kindness
Immeasurable Equanimity ( a traditional Dudjom Rinpoche's Thröma Nagmo)
