National Anthem of Nepal - सयौँ थुँगा फूलका... by Ravi Mhrz

National Anthem Lyrics

Woven from hundreds of flowers, we are one garland that's Nepali
Spread sovereign from Mechi to Mahakali
A shawl of nature's wealth unending
From the blood of the braves, a nation free and non-moving
A land of knowledge, of peace, the plains, hills and mountains tall
Indivisible, this beloved land of ours, our motherland Nepal
Of many races, languages, religions, and cultures of incredible sprawl
This progressive nation of ours, all hail Nepal!
