Showing Thanks for Master’s Great Kindness with Greetings and Cards
(Minghui.org) Each year, the Minghui website sorts and publishes many greetings and cards that respectfully wish Master Li Hongzhi a happy New Year. The greetings come from inside and outside of China, from practitioners and non-practitioners. The greetings and cards from China cover nearly all regions, all social levels, and all walks of life. Each one represents either a region, a company, a Fa-study group, a family, or an individual. The greetings and cards from China are sent to Minghui by breaking through the Internet blockade using anti-blockade software.
Publishing New Year greetings from China on Minghui started in 2002, and it has continued for over ten years to this day. Sorting and publishing these sincere greetings commence at the start of each New Year. Through these greetings and cards, people can see that Falun Gong practitioners in China have a firm belief in Master and Dafa, and that they clarify the truth to people despite 13 years of brutal persecution by the Communist regime. More and more people have come to understand the truth, and many have even started practicing Falun Gong. These greetings allow us to see the pure belief of Dafa practitioners and the impelling power of Master’s moral character.
Sincere Thanks from Practitioners in China
The practitioners in a Fa-study group in Changchun City, Jilin Province, respectfully wish Master a happy New Year. They said, “Master, you have worked hard. We will follow Master’s teachings, make good use of time, look within, cooperate well, cultivate diligently, save more sentient beings, and fulfill our prehistoric vows. Thank you, Master, for your salvation!”
A practitioner from Mujiayu Town, Miyun County, Beijing, said, “Under the guidance of Master’s Buddha Law, your disciple has found his attachments over this past year. I am constantly purifying my heart and mind with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance amidst doing the three things. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the principle of life that Master bestowed to disciples. Master gave up everything for the disciples. Master, you have worked hard. Your disciple greets Master for the New Year, wishing that Master will return to Beijing soon. Thank you, Master, for your compassionate salvation! I will do the three things well.”
Practitioners in Fuzhou City, Fujian Province, wrote, “During the precious time that Master has extended for us with his great suffering, as Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples, we will look within, cultivate ourselves well, reach the standard of Dafa, fulfill our prehistoric vows, save more sentient beings, and return home with Master!”
Practitioners from three Fa-study groups in Guandu District, Kunming City, Yunnan Province, wrote, “Our revered Master creates a new hope for all sentient beings with his enormous suffering and effort.

Greetings from the Police, Military, Justice, and Education Departments and from All Walks of Life in China
Chinese Dafa practitioners span all industries and fields and all departments of government. They all send greetings to wish Master a happy New Year.
A practitioner from an army group in the Nanjing military region in Jiangsu Province wrote, “Over the past ten-plus years of cultivation, Master has taken care of me while walking through hard times, laid a bright road to an eternal future, and bestowed upon me the most magnificent things. I shall correct every thought of mine with Dafa, validate Dafa with a most righteous character, and save sentient beings. Only then will I not let down Master’s arduous salvation, not let down the sacred title of a Fa-rectification Dafa disciple, and return home with Master.”
A practitioner in the judicial system in Central Shandong Province wrote, “Master, you have worked hard! Your disciple has been walking on the path of cultivation for ten-plus years under Master’s great compassion. There’s nothing I could do to pay back your compassionate salvation. The only thing I can do is follow Master’s teachings, cherish Dafa, cherish everything amidst cultivation, and be diligent in Dafa.”
A practitioner in the education system in Changchun City, Jilin Province, wrote, “Time flies fast. Snowflakes are falling again. During the time when we wave goodbye to last year and welcome in the new year, we miss Master! You have worked hard! I will upgrade myself, do the three things with my heart, and repay Master’s boundless benevolence.”
A practitioner from the People’s Bank wrote, “I looked back on the path I’ve walked. It was all under Master’s compassionate care. Master picked me up from hell and purified me with the grand Buddha Fa. Everything of mine is bestowed by Master and Dafa. Only when I assimilate to Dafa and fulfill my prehistoric vows, will I not let down Master’s compassionate salvation!”
Illegally Detained Practitioners Respectfully Wish Master a Happy New Year
Numerous practitioners have been detained in prisons, labor camps, brainwashing centers, and detention centers since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong in 1999. Even while in detention, practitioners uphold their belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Practitioners that are incarcerated in the Liaoning Province Women’s Prison wrote, “Please do not worry, Master. Even though we are being imprisoned, our belief in Master and Dafa cannot be moved. It will not block us from following Master and returning home, nor will it block us from doing what we want to do. A genuine Dafa disciple is shining gold no matter where he goes.”
New Practitioners and Those Who Understand the Truth Respectfully Wish Master a Happy New Year
More and more Chinese citizens have come to understand the goodness of Falun Dafa through practitioners’ truth-clarification efforts. There are new practitioners continuously walking into cultivation and benefitting from Dafa. In the New Year, new practitioners and people who understand the truth also send their greetings and express their thanks to Master.
One practitioner in Jilin Province wrote, “I started cultivation three years ago. I changed from a person full of illness to a person without any illness. I sincerely thank Master for your compassionate salvation! There are no words that can express Master’s kindness. Only by genuinely cultivating myself can I repay Master’s kindness. I will work hard tirelessly, catch up with the progress of Fa-rectification, and return home with Master.”
Personnel in the Henan Province Judiciary system wrote, “Sincere thanks to Master Li’s compassionate salvation! There are many signs that the CCP will disintegrate and be destroyed soon. We hope that everybody can understand the truth, not be fooled by the CCP, and choose a bright future for themselves!”
Falun Dafa teaches us to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, to value virtue, and to improve the mind. It has five gentle exercises that are suitable for modern people. Everyone who genuinely practices Falun Dafa experiences physical and mental improvement as well as improvement of their moral character. Because of their personal experiences, the practitioners in China steadfastly believe in Master and Dafa, even under the brutal persecution. They clarify the truth to others and uncover the lies of the CCP. These greetings from inside and outside of China show the firm belief of practitioners and the goodness of Falun Dafa. We hope that more people come to understand the truth and receive blessings from Dafa this year.
