Dalai Lama's Birthday

Let us be grateful and pray for the long life of Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.

His birthday is 6 July.

Happy Birthday to the him, may he continue to teach, inspire, and spread the Dharma for many more years.

The essence of a real practice is to bring our intellectual understanding to the level of our heart - so as to feel it - to live it!

In this holy Land surrounded by snow mountains,
You are the source of all benefit and happiness
May your lotus feet, O powerful Chenrezig, Tenzin Gyatso
Remain in this world until the end of existence.

Rest in natural great peace this exhausted mind,
Beaten helplessly by karma and neurotic thoughts
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.
Rest in natural great peace.
~Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche

Happy Birthday to HH Dalai Lama! May you long remain in our world to gladden and teach all beings! May you be immovable until samsara is emptied.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
