On the occasion of the 20th Falun Dafa Day and the birthday of Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of the practice, practitioners around the world held celebratory events to let people know about this ancient spiritual practice and express their gratitude to Mr. Li. This report covers events held in Toronto Canada, Stockholm, Sweden, and Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
Over one thousand practitioners from northern Taiwan gathered at Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall in Taipei to celebrate Master Li’s 68th birthday and the 27th anniversary of the practice being introduced to the public.
Falun Dafa, first brought to the public in China 27 years ago by Master Li Hongzhi, is now embraced by an estimated 100 million people worldwide. People of all ethnicities have enhanced their health, uplifted their heart and mind nature and improved their quality of life through practicing Falun Dafa. May 13, World Falun Dafa Day and Master Li's birthday, is a special day for Dafa practitioners everywhere.
A woman who had her terrible illnesses healed by Falun Dafa spread the practice to her family, and then the rest of her village. She gives her account of how she and those around her have enjoyed the benefits of being a practitioner.
Practitioners and supporters of Falun Dafa from around the world held activities in Germany, Finland, and Switzerland to celebrate this holiday. They demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises, performed traditional Chinese dances, presented musical offerings, and raised awareness of the ongoing persecution in China.
To celebrate World Falun Dafa Day, practitioners, their friends, families, and supporters gathered to mark both the anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction and Mr. Li’s birthday.
