Buddhist Birthday Song? Huh??

I bet you, as a Buddhist (if you are not one, you are excused ), also do not know about this birthday song!!  

I also did not know it until I joined B.I.S.D.S as a teacher!  And I say it is a more meaningful song compared to the normal Birthday song  

First, check out the lyrics here:

Happy Birthday, this is your day
May your wishes come true
May the Buddha bless you always
May the Dharma guide you!

(For adults)
Ever growing in the Sangha
Both in wisdom and compassion
Be a refuge unto yourself
Till you’re free from delusion!

(For children)
Ever growing in the Sangha
Both in wisdom and compassion
Little children love your parents
Little Buddha’s you’ll ever be!

Happy Birthday, this is your day
May your wishes come true
May the Buddha bless you always
May the Dharma guide you
Happy Birthday to you!

Next, sing along lor!

 

Which birthday song do you prefer?
