New York Senate Celebrates 19th World Falun Dafa Day
(Minghui.org) The New York State Senate unanimously passed resolution 4488 to commemorate the 19th Annual World Falun Dafa Day Celebration, to be observed on May 13, 2018. This is the 8th consecutive year that the New York State Senate has passed a resolution acknowledging this special occasion.
More than 100 proclamations in honor of Falun Dafa being practiced for the past 26 years have been received from New York federal, state, county, and city officials since mid-April. These proclamations also declare May 13 as the 19th World Falun Dafa Day.
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, was introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi on May 13, 1992. Based on five exercises and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, this meditation system is now well received in more than 100 countries, with teachings available in more than 40 languages.
