Falun Dafa Practitioners and Supporters in China Celebrate World Falun Dafa Day and Respectfully Wish Master Li Hongzhi a Happy Birthday (24 Greetings)
(Minghui.org) Many Falun Dafa practitioners and their families and friends who support the practice sent their warmest greetings to the Minghui website in honor of the 20th World Falun Dafa Day.
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is a spiritual discipline based on the values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Shortly after it was introduced to the public by Master Li Hongzhi on May 13, 1992, it became popular all over China, and 70 to 100 million people learned it.
Many of them experienced tremendous health benefits after learning Falun Dafa and they gained a new appreciation for the importance of integrity.
A practitioner in Enping, Guangdong Province, recounted how her neighbors used to be hostile to her because they misunderstood Falun Gong but eventually became supporters. She wrote, “Everyone has a predestined relationship with Dafa. As a Dafa disciple who is responsible for helping Master with the Fa rectification, I looked for my own faults when I was treated unfairly. I didn't fight for my personal interests. Instead, I was considerate of others and put them before myself.
“My behavior changed my neighbors who used to misunderstand Dafa. They once threatened to report me to the police. Now they have learned the facts about Dafa and have quit the Communist organizations. The neighbor across the hall used to invade our shared public space. She has moved her pile of stuff back into her apartment and gotten rid of the trash. She told me that she wanted to be a good person like me [a Falun Gong practitioner]. A downstairs neighbor always greets me and says she appreciates having a Falun Gong practitioner as her good neighbor. This happened because Master has shouldered the karma for sentient beings and extended the time with his own sufferings. Master has given them opportunities to be saved. Their changes are reflections of the power of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance!”
