Today of 8 years ago, our Teacher spread the Buddha law - Falun Dafa to the human world. Over the past 8 years, Falun Dafa has been disseminated from Mainland China to every city, every town and the countryside of the entire world. Those who have predestined relationships "come one after another, entering the Tao and obtaining the Fa [law]. They will distinguish the righteous from the evil, receive the genuine teachings, lighten their bodies, enhance their wisdom, strengthen their hearts, and board the boat of the Fa, sailing smoothly", "strive forward with every effort until the completion of cultivation".

However, in the past year, the dissemination of Falun Dafa has suffered a severe test. Fellow practitioners in China have been experiencing extremely harsh tribulations. Looking upon the people all over the world, while a great number of people have recognized the truth of Falun Dafa, some are against it, and some are dubious of it, some curse it, and some are indifferent to it. Those people who have been indulged in the maze of the human world have lost their inborn nature. However, more and more people of predestined relationship with Falun Dafa have had chance to hear the Buddha Law in this severe condition, understand Falun Dafa, and enter the cultivation of Falun Dafa.

"Upon making further advance altogether, the future would be brilliant" is Tearcher's encouragement and advice to us practitioners. It is also our Teacher's wish to promulgate widely Falun Dafa and let all people with predestined relationship learn Falun Dafa. Eight years ago, it was Teacher himself who started to spread Falun Dafa. Today, 8 years after, Falun Dafa practitioners are all over the world. It is our wish to assist Teacher to spread Falun Dafa in the human world. Spreading Falun Dafa widely is every practitioner's responsibility. For further widely spreading Falun Dafa in the human world and for all people who are predestined for Falun Dafa, we, 100 million practitioners worldwide, will hold Falun Dafa introduction activities worldwide on May 13, 2000, the first World Falun Dafa Day. Practitioners in Edmonton, Canada are also going to have group practice and introduction activities from 9:30 AM at the front of the Strathcona Library, Edmonton. We would like to warmly congratulate on the first World Falun Dafa Day and wish that our fellow practitioners worldwide successfully hold their introduction activities at this time.
