Moon Festival Greetings from China: Falun Dafa Brings Hope for the Future
(Minghui.org) Thousands of greetings have poured into the Minghui website during the Moon Festival, thanking Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, for introducing the practice. While the authors of the greetings come from varying backgrounds and experiences, they share the same heartfelt gratitude. Below is a sampling of greetings from different corners of China.
Understanding the Truth
“Because our society has sunk so low, many people in China now fight for personal gain, and corrupt officials are everywhere. Thank you, Master Li, for helping me to discern the truth and clearly know what is right and what is wrong. I think this is important for our future. Thank you!”
A man in Jilin City, Jilin Province, wrote, “After my wife began practicing Falun Dafa, she became healthier, more open-minded, and even tempered.” The author then shared that because of her belief, his wife was arrested and detained. “I know my wife and other Falun Dafa practitioners are innocent. I will try my best to help them so that they can regain their freedom soon.”
“Knowing Falun Dafa is the best thing that has ever happened to me, because it helps me to recognize what is right and what is wrong in this chaotic society. As a result, I stopped just going with the flow and acting against my conscience.”
One resident of Beijing said that, although she is not a practitioner, she believes in the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. “We are truly proud of what you have brought to Chinese people and the world.”
Peace and Happiness
“There are four generations in our big family, and many practice Falun Dafa. The rest support the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, so our entire family is blessed. We are grateful for our peaceful and happy life. And we hope Master Li can return to China, so that more people can benefit from Falun Dafa like us.”
“Although I have not practiced Falun Dafa yet, with my own eyes I have seen how the practice has improved people's health and character. Right now, my entire family is happy, and I think the credit goes to Falun Dafa. We sincerely support Falun Dafa.”
“I am a man in my 80s. I know what Falun Dafa is and often recite, 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' I do not have any health problems.” This person shared that he sometimes worries about family members who practice Falun Dafa because of the ongoing suppression. “But I never tell them to stop, because they are doing the right thing and I fully support them,” he wrote.
Quitting the Communist Party Organizations
“I am a man in my 70s. Through Falun Dafa practitioners, I learned that this practice and Master Li have been wronged. I no longer believe in the defamatory propaganda and I am willing to renounce membership from the communist party organizations.”
A person from Beijing said he understands the significance of what Falun Dafa has brought to mankind and how much Master Li has sacrificed. “You helped me to understand the heavenly law and do the right thing.” This person said he has quit the communist party organizations and supports the lawsuits being filed against former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin for persecuting Falun Dafa.
Appreciation and Thanks
“Master Li, I admire you and Dafa practitioners, because over the past 18 years, practitioners have risked their lives to let people know the facts about Falun Dafa. Thank you for helping so many people become better citizens.”
“Thank you, Master Li, for putting so much effort into introducing Falun Dafa and helping practitioners, as well as society. Although I am not a practitioner, I truly feel the pressure caused by the persecution over the past 18 years. I am also very touched by your compassion. We are all counting on you. Thank you!”
Hope for the Future
“I agree with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. And my conscience tells me to support Falun Dafa and its practitioners. Thank you, Master Li! You are our hope.”
A woman in Shandong Province who practices law said she is fully aware of the corruption of the communist party. “I am truly thankful that Master Li has bought Falun Dafa, something so wonderful, to us. I know it is now suppressed in China, but it is practitioners' determination in their righteous belief that gives us confidence for our future.”
A middle school student in Beijing said he had seen the positive changes Falun Dafa has brought to his family. “It is a tradition in China that we are grateful for what we have received from others. During this Moon Festival, I am especially indebted to what Master Li has done for us.” He hopes the persecution will end soon, and, when it does, “I will practice Falun Dafa, too.”
