The World Needs Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance
Throughout the ages, the world has paid countless tributes to those who won people's admiration by their persistent quest for the truth. Over the course of history, beings have endured hardships of every kind but still waited with longing. On May 13th ten years ago, a date forever marked in human history, Falun Dafa was first taught in the city of Changchun, its birthplace, and began its spread in heaven and earth, marking the beginning of a new song of life.
The cosmic principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" as taught by Falun Dafa transcend the boundaries of time and space, and forge a bond in the hearts of people from both East and West. Falun Dafa awakens the benevolent innate essence of the human race that has been lost for so long, enabling beings to understand the true meaning of life. Falun Dafa's principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" have taken root in people's hearts.
Today, no matter if you were born in the East or the West, no matter where you live in the world, no matter what your station in life might be, everyone is steeped in this greatest mercy and Buddha's infinite grace.
Over the course of the contest between goodness and evil, justice and truth are emitting an ever-brighter radiance. In the past three years, many countries' governments and kind-hearted people have honored and supported Falun Dafa while condemning the evil persecution. This has enabled many people around the world to choose the most wonderful future for themselves. Now, we welcome the ten-year anniversary of Dafa's spreading in the world, a date of celebration that signifies the renewal of people's lives.
In his congratulatory statement to the New York Fa Conference, Master said, "In history's past, you brought to humankind the splendor it should have; in history's present, Dafa has bestowed upon you the mission of saving all sentient beings; in history's future, everything of yours that is pure and righteous will be what ensures that the colossal firmament has formation and stasis, but not destruction. Walk your paths well. The beings who are saved are to be your sentient beings. All that you do establishes all that you will consummate."
Everyone is encouraged to embrace the theme of "The world needs 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance'", as it provides an opportunity for the salvation of more beings, an opportunity for the awakened people to understand the blessings Falun Dafa brings to them, and an opportunity for those organizations in society and kind-hearted people who have shown their support to us to express their good wishes, even if it is just a few words.
Dafa's spread all over the world has entered its tenth year. With the rapid progress of Fa-rectification, with the Mainland China disciples' mighty compassion and forbearance, and with the exposing of the evil by disciples outside of China, our truth-clarifying efforts have helped people of the world become more and more clear-headed.
In "Dafa is Good," Master says,
Falun Dafa is good
The colossal firmament illuminated by the Fa's light
Only after the immense force of Fa-rectification sweeps through
Are the boundless wonders known
Falun Dafa is good
Gradually entering the human realm
The sentient beings need not worry
Gods and Buddhas are already smiling
