To Our Respected Master
On the birthday of our Master
Even more your practitioners think of you.
Consecrated is our sincerity
In front of the Picture with flowers and fruits.
A lighted fresh incense stick
Is presented to our respected Master who is far away.
For sixteen years the Fa has been spread
And now seen throughout the world are the Pure Lotus Flowers.
For sixteen years Dafa has been spread
By surmounting all kinds of hardships and difficulties.
With the lighted fresh incense sticks conveying our gratitude to our Master for his kindness
Our pure hearts have formed predestined relationship.
With thousands of dangerous passes that have been surmounted
All fated calamities are already culminating.
When we follow our Master to the Heavens in the future
The whole world will exclaim its abstruseness in admiration.
