It is the final verse of the Heart Sutra (Mahayana) and means:
“Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone utterly beyond, Enlightenment hail!”

(Sanskrit)

Transliterated in English it looks like 'gate' (like an airport gate) but is actually pronounced gah-tay.

The German for what Santa says there ("Immer dies Buddhisten"), reads, literally as:

"[It's] always these Buddhists!"

or perhaps better
"[It's] always those Buddhists!",
as English and German use the words "this/that", "these/those" slightly differently.

(I can't see how they get "Of all those Buddhists"?)
