(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners and others around the world have established a tradition of sending New Year's greetings to Falun Gong founder, Master Li Hongzhi. The Chinese language Minghui website published over 130 pages of greetings on January 1 alone. Some 10,000 greetings have been received.

The vast majority of Falun Gong practitioners are from Mainland China, and so too are the bulk of the greetings. Such a public outpouring of respect and gratitude is rare in the Western world, and is a truly remarkable phenomenon.

The vast number of greetings bears witness to the high esteem in which Master Li Hongzhi is held; to the majesty of Falun Dafa; and also to the remarkable resilience Falun Dafa and Falun Dafa practitioners have demonstrated, even after having endured over fifteen years of persecution at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.
