(Minghui.org) On the 20th World Falun Dafa Day, many Chinese who have benefited from the ancient spiritual practice have sent heartfelt good wishes to celebrate the public introduction of the practice and to wish the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi, a happy birthday.

One family of 68 in Huainan City, Anhui Province, wrote: “You’ve given us so much that we can’t express our gratitude in words. With deep reverence, we want to shout out to the world, 'Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!'”

A resident of Nanchong City, Sichuan Province, wrote: “Please accept our entire family's most sincere good wishes. Thank you for your great compassion and for teaching Dafa to the world! Both my parents and in-laws are Dafa practitioners. As their children, we care about their health. I witnessed all the improvements they’ve made since picking up Dafa. They enjoy such good health from the practice!

“My parents often share the wonderful stories about Dafa with us, teach us the principles of how to be a good person, and help us have a clearer understanding of this world. Although we haven’t started practicing ourselves, we know Dafa is great, and we try to follow the principles in our daily lives. We have all benefited from Dafa. And everything is because of your grace. I hope the practice spreads far and wide all over the world!”

A Shanghai resident wrote: “We have always supported our family members who practice Dafa. When they are threatened with persecution by the government or people make irresponsible comments about them because they believe the state-sponsored slanderous propaganda, we always speak up for them. We know that Dafa is innocent and righteous. We’ve helped Dafa practitioners we didn’t know to hand out information. We are always glad to help. It is our honor.”

Another family in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province, wrote: “My mother is 96 now, but she is still in perfect health and takes good care of herself, because she benefits from practicing Dafa! My mother isn't the only one who has been blessed. My son had a brain tumor last year. He had surgery and completely recovered. He went back to work and also got married. It's just wonderful!”

An 85-year-old man in Shandong said he used to be very resistant when Dafa practitioners tried to clarify the facts to him. “I believed the demonizing propaganda, so I was scared every time they talked to me. This year when I went back to my hometown in Shandong Province, two of my sisters, who have practiced Dafa for more than 20 years, talked to me again. I had always refused to listen to them and thought they were getting political in the past. But this time, I actually wanted to discuss the issue with them.

“We had a serious conversation. I watched some documentaries on the communist regime's history and listened to Master's lectures. Finally, I understood everything! Falun Gong is really great! It teaches people to be good. I was deceived for so many years by the communist regime. Although I haven't started to practice Dafa myself, I'm 100% supportive of it. I will try my best to protect the practitioners and persuade people to quit the communist organizations.”

A college student in Changchun, Master Li's hometown in Jilin Province, wrote: “Congratulations on Falun Dafa's 27th anniversary! Thank you, Dafa, for helping me free my mind from the control of the communist regime. I've gained new understandings about life. Thank you for teaching the practice in this time of chaos and for bringing us blessings!”

Another resident in Ziyang City, Sichuan Province, who has quit the Communist Party, wanted to thank Master Li and Dafa practitioners for helping him understand the truth about Falun Dafa. “I was saved from despair. I'm no longer a lost soul. You have given me and the Chinese nation hope for a bright future! I long for the day you return to China!”
