Birthday


Explanation:
"Shengri" as a word ( and I guess you are after the meaning of this word only) means "Birthday" and not "Happy Birthday".

The phrase is best translated as "Wishing you a Happy Birthday".

"Happy Birthday" is usually translated as simply "Shengri Kuaile".

Hope this has helped.
