Usage of 'congratulations'

Can someone please tell me if the following setences are OK?

Congratulations Jacob on winning the Best Performer Award

Congratulations Jacob on the Best Performer Award


It would seem better to add a verb here like ‘on winning’ or ‘on getting’. Possibly if you want to omit a verb, you could say:

Congratulations Jacob on YOUR Best Performer Award.


Hi Alan,
Do you agree that in a broader context where the speakers know exactly what is being referred, we can use ‘the’ instead of a possessive adjective?

Tom: Paul, do you know Marry has just won the Best Performer Award?
Later Paul met Marry and said to her:
Marry, congratulations on the award/the Best Performer Award.


I think if you are talking to the winner, I would personalize it a bit, don’t you?


Your usage may be correct or not, but one thing… I am sorry to tell you that you (actually your material body) cannot live forever in this material world. You may live for 125 years at the most. Even if you are able to live for 1000 years (which is highly unlikely), you(and me) have to die one day. You are actually a spiritual particle-a soul, and the soul is actually eternal. You have to first understand your real identity. “You” are not the body. “You” are a soul and this is your body. The body is always dead, the soul is always eternal. The soul gives “life” to the body, because the soul, in principle, is actually “alive”-eternally.
