Taking the Opportunity of Chinese New Year to Raise Awareness About the Persecution of Falun Gong in China
Falun Gong practitioners around the world, the vast majority of whom are of Chinese descent, continue to raise awareness of the persecution of the practice in China even during the most important Chinese holiday. Two such events were held a continent apart in New York and Helsinki.
Hundreds of practitioners gathered at Edinburgh Place near Hong Kong City Hall on January 28, to celebrate the New Year and send best regards to Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa. Attendees included local practitioners in Hong Kong, as well as immigrants and visitors from mainland China. While speaking of the the great benefits they have received from Falun Dafa, several practitioners were moved to tears.
At the Chinese New Year, thousands of Falun Gong practitioners and supporters sent greetings to the founder of the practice, Master Li Hongzhi. They wished him a Happy Chinese New Year and expressed gratitude for the benefits of the practice and its principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
Among thousands of New Year greetings received by Minghui, a large number of them come from family members and friends of practitioners. Here we present translations of a sampling of such greetings that were recorded and sent to the Minghui website as audio files.
Following the Falun Dafa principles led a woman to learn to place the needs of others before her own. Caring less about profits above all else, she began to produce the highest quality organic vegetables she could, benefiting others as well as her own family.
"I was skeptical of Falun Dafa until I became healthy and my argumentative behavior was replaced with compassion."
