Simple Monk — Lyrics
Personal Journey — Tsewang Sherpalama

Migyul, the Himalayan Community Magazine of New York, has produced the first-ever music CD in Nepali in praise of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Tsewang Sherpalama, a resident of New York City who claims that the Dalai Lama had a huge influence on his life, envisioned the music CD and wrote the lyrics. Buddhism in Nepal has come a full circle with this music CD. The Dalai Lama, the most revered international Buddhist leader, has been venerated and honored by Tsewang Sherpalama in the language of the land where the Buddha was born.

Some of the biggest names in Nepali music industry such as Nhyoo Bajracharya, Manila and Uday Sohtang, Ani Choying and Dhakal have lent their voices to The Simple Monk. Four of the seven tracks are translations of the Dalai Lama’s teachings in Nepali, while two are in praise of the Dalai Lama. The seventh song, “ Ah yo Hai Losar”, proclaims the coming of Losar — New Year for all the Himalayan people.

It is the aim of the CD to take the simple message of peace of the Dalai Lama to the Himalayan people in the region of Nepal in the language that they are most comfortable with — Nepali.
