HBHH – Happy Birthday His Holiness

Today is the birthday of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, Tenzin Gytaso.

I have blogged about him and Tibetan Buddhism previously so will not say anything more here than, “Happy Birthday” and repeat the traditional Long Life Prayer chanted throughout the world everyday:

Gang ri ra wä kor wäi zhing kham dir
Phän dang de wa ma lü jung wäi nä
Chän rä zig wang tän dzin gya tsho yi
Zhab pä si thäi bar du tän gyur chig.

In the land encircled by snow mountains
You are the source of all happiness and good;
All-powerful Chenrezig, Tenzin Gyatso,
Please remain until samsara ends.

(This is the short version, long version here.)
