BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY. From the age of five, not a day of Ani Choying's life went by without a beating from her father. The day he nearly stabbed her to death, she ran away. She escaped her violent home for a monastery in Nepal, where a Buddhist monk offered her sanctuary and understanding, teaching her to embrace life again. Slowly she learned to channel her rage towards her father into helping others. One day, an American jazz guitarist heard the young nun sing and was so enthralled by her voice that he invited her to record an album with him. The royalty cheque was an unexpected windfall that enabled her to fulfil a long-cherished dream: to set up a school for young girls like herself, in a country where 80 per cent of women are illiterate. In 2000 Ani Choying opened Arya Tara School, just outside Kathmandu. She went on to adopt a little girl, then two, and then another followed - until they became sixty. In Singing For Freedom she tells her shocking and inspiring story.
