Your birthday falls so close to
our great holiday,Thanksgiving, that
I am filled with gratitude,
knowing full well that
your gifts are beyond thanks
and I must live always
with this infinite
debt of love.
Lacking the merit to attend your birthday,
I send these vain words and make the same promise as
Prince Candracchattra made to Tathagata Bhaisajyaraja
long ago in the universe called Mahavyuha
to hear, believe, honor, uphold, penetrate, and incorporate
your beautiful teachings in all my lives.
May your health be perfect.
May you be ageless as you are wise, like Nagarjuna.
May your Buddhas’ smile shine on forever.

As the co-founder of Kagyu Samye Ling, the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre in the West, Akong Tulku Rinpoche always ensured that all Buddhist teachings given at Samye Ling were transmitted by the very best teachers. A renowned scholar and highly realised master who has been tutor to both the 16th and 17th Karmapas, Kenchen Thrangu Rinpoche has been a frequent visitor to Samye Ling and has given numerous precious teachings and empowerments. He is a veritable jewel of the Kagyu Lineage and everyone at Kagyu Samye Ling wishes him a happy birthday and a long life. May his wisdom and compassion continue to illuminate the world for many years to come.
