Music Video: “The Auspicious Triple Gathering” By Tashi Thaye

High Peaks Pure Earth has translated a music video titled “The Auspicious Triple Gathering” written, composed and sung by Tashi Thaye.

The video has been online since May 2011 but there is little background information available about the singer and the song to give it more context. In the first verse, “The Auspicious Triple Gathering” makes references to the three auspicious signs related to nature – sun, moon and stars, used by Tibetans as a metaphor for the Dalai Lama, the Panchen Lama and the Karmapa, as shown in an image in the video. A gathering of three is also significant in Tibetan Buddhism as the triple gem are the three things that Buddhists take refuge in, the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha. Tibetans will often refer to the Dalai Lama as Yeshe Norbu, meaning wish-fulfilling jewel.

This is music video number 38 translated by High Peaks Pure Earth since the Wednesday music video series started around this time last year. Be sure to go back and watch our other videos using this link: http://highpeakspureearth.com/category/music-from-tibet/

“The Auspicious Triple Gathering”
Lyrics and Composer: Tashi Thaye
Singer: Tashi Thaye
Editor: Tashi Gyal

 

The day of auspiciousness
The sun, moon and stars gather
An auspicious day
A wish-fulfilling day
When the sun, moon and stars gather
Tibetan loyalty won’t be forgotten
When the sun, moon and stars gather
Tibetan loyalty won’t be forgotten

The day of auspiciousness
The kind parents gather
An auspicious day
A wish-fulfilling day
When the kind parents gather
Do not forget to repay their kindness
When the kind parents gather
Do not forget to repay their kindness

The day of auspiciousness
The dear brothers and sisters gather
An auspicious day
A wish-fulfilling day
When the parents and children gather
Joyful dances are performed
When the parents and children gather
Joyful songs are sung
When the parents and children gather
Joyful songs are sung
