吉祥三宝 is a very beautiful song by a Mongolian composer 布仁巴雅尔. It is sung by a little girl, and a man, and a woman, as a little girl and her parents. In the lyrics, the little girl asks her parents what are the Sun, Moon, and Stars? and other silly questions, and her parents tell her it's the joyous-three-treasures, painting a most beautiful picture of life's basic joys.

Three times three is nine; Nine wishes all come true.

Three times three is nine; Nine wishes all come true.

Parents: Norma?
Girl: aye!
Parents: What are the sun, moon, and stars?
Girl: What?
Parents: What are leaves, flowers, and fruits?
Girl: I forgot.
Parents: What are papá, mamá, and us?
Girl: the Joyous-Treasures!
Three times three is nine; Nine wishes all come true.

Look at the little girl in the last stanza. She knew not what are the heavenly bodies, nor about plants, but when asked about her family, she knew well it is a joyous treasure of life!
