Today, we Falun Dafa practitioners come here to celebrate the first World Falun Dafa Day and to celebrate eight years of spreading the Fa.

Eight years ago today, Master Li, with his enormous compassion and profound wisdom, gave his first public law lecture. He connected with peoples Buddha natures, which moved and inspired those who listened. Since then, Falun Dafa has been cleaning up the dirt and filth in the world, awakening those who were lost in the maze, and creating the sentient beings for the new universe. The great book Zhuan Falun is shining brightly with Zhen-Shan-Ren, and guiding all who were lost to return to their true selves and rightful place in the universe.

Today, more than one hundred million people throughout the world have already listened to the genuine Truth of the universe, bathed under the sun of the great law, and embraced the universal principle Truth-Compassion-Tolerance. The Great Law is saving people compassionately, and rectifying the ignorance and fallacies of mankind once again.

We praise Dafa because its power of truth allows mans lost nature to find the meaning of life. We praise Dafa for helping the prodigal sons to return, the wicked to become virtuous, and the virtuous to upgrade. We praise Dafa because it does not fear the old forces of evil, and allows Buddhas light to shine once again in the universe.

We can clearly see the compassionate nature and the greatness of the Dafa, the seriousness and sacredness of the Dafa shines even during the harshest tribulations of reality. Let us forever remember this special day, May 13, as World Falun Dafa Day. The practitioners from Ottawa thank the Master from our hearts and will continue to assist the Master in rectifying the Fa and in bringing Falun Dafa to every kind-hearted person who deserves it.

Lastly, we wish every success for the Canada Falun Dafa experience sharing conference.
