Happy Birthday Shangpa Rinpoche !
The mother Bhagawan, the source of the Victorious Ones (Buddhas) and also their sons (Bodhisattvas)
gracefully manifests with a smiling countenance, like a new moon beaming
and the recollection of Her bestows splendid longevity
Immortal Yidshin Khorlo (White Tara), kindly grant your Blessings.
By the wonderful activities of the renowned Karmapa, the Lokeshvara,
which have nobly governed the world,
May you, the embodiment of the three secrets of the exalted Bodhisattvas,
the Saviour of all beings, stay in this world, like the unchangeable nature of the Vajra.
By hearing, contemplating and practising, the youthful knowledge blooms;
and the life stories of the intelligent, diligent and virtuous ones are always popular in this world.
May you, the embodiment of those who have been expounding, debating and writing;
the holder of the victory banner of Dharma, remain in this world, like the two spontaneously arising benefits.
Sown in the field of devotion were the seeds of aspiration prayers which,
having been moistened by the rain of the unerring two Truths,
have ripened into the joyful wish fulfilling feast for those who are fortunate.
May you remain in this world for the benefit and support of the three Dhatus
