“Chogyam Trungpa always had everyone sing “Cheerful Birthday,” not “Happy Birthday,” saying that Happiness was a state of mind that had Sadness or Unhappiness on its flip side. Cheerfulness, he said, better described a fundamental way or attitude of being. So, growing up in the Buddhist tradition, we always sang Cheerful Birthday to you… Either way is great, as long as you consider that you’re not wishing a temporary state of being based on circumstances—but rather that the you may truly continue to become friends with oneself.”

Waylon Lewis – born and raised in an American Buddhist family.    Re-posted – Jen Maidenberg’s blog, ‘Yadda Yadda Yadda’ :                                                    Post – “Cheerful Birthday to Me .. A Ballad Sung Solo”

“We are like butterflies that flutter for a day and think it is forever.” 

Dr. Carl Sagan
