(Minghui.org) October 4, 2017 is Mid-Autumn Festival. It is an important traditional holiday for families to reunite and reflect on life and what one is grateful for.

At this special occasion, young Falun Dafa practitioners and college students across China also took the opportunity to send their greetings and express their gratitude to the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi.

“Benevolent Master, you teach us the universe's principles 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.' You guide us to walk on the path to return to our original, true selves. You bring hope to mankind. We are so grateful for you and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to cultivate Falun Dafa.” wrote one student from Tsinghua University, one of the most prestigious universities in China.

Another young practitioner in Beijing said: “Dear Master, you helped me take on a positive and hopeful look on life. I feel I'm the most fortunate person and every day is a happy day for me. You had given me so much. I really miss you and long for your return to China.”
