(Minghui.org) On the grand occasion of the 2019 Chinese New Year, Falun Dafa practitioners around the world are sending their heartfelt wishes to the founder of the practice, Master Li Hongzhi, through the Minghui website.

Although many of these practitioners can't deliver their greetings in person, they all express their deep gratitude for Master Li and vow to be more diligent in their cultivation in the new year.

Falun Dafa practitioners imprisoned in China for their faith, who have to break through layers and layers of internet firewall to get their messages out, are in a special category of those who have sent greetings.

Despite the fact that they are incarcerated and have lost their freedom, they haven't wavered in their faith or lost hope. Instead, they are awakening the people around them with their utmost compassion and kindness.

One practitioner in Fanjiatai Prison, Hubei Province, wrote: “Although we are now locked in the darkness, we believe that dawn isn't far away. With Master's guidance and protection, we have no regrets. We will hold onto our kindness and deliver hope to those around us.”

Other greetings were received from practitioners incarcerated in the following regions:
