Practitioners in Hong Kong gathered for meditation and music performances, celebrating the New Year and wishing the founder of Falun Dafa, a Happy New Year. They were touched by many citizens who showed support. One participant shared, “A young lady asked for some materials, and helped distribute them. At another time when it was raining, two young men held an umbrella over my head for about half an hour, as I handed out materials to pedestrians.”
Falun Dafa practitioners across the globe live by the same teachings and follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. To celebrate the New Year, they have sent in greetings to express their gratitude to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, for their good fortune and good health and all the many blessings they have received from practicing this ancient form of cultivation.
In their greetings, many practitioners expressed deep gratitude toward the founder of Falun Dafa and reflected on their journeys of self-cultivation and countering the persecution in China over the past twenty-plus years. "We will continue to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to become better citizens," practitioners from one city wrote.
Kaohsiung, Taiwan: Falun Dafa Practitioners Wish Master Li Hongzhi Happy New Year, Share Cultivation Stories
Practitioners in Kaohsiung gathered at the end of December to study and share experiences, reflecting on their cultivation as they ushered in the New Year.
At the New Year, a practitioner outside China submitted a letter expressing appreciation to Master Li, writing, "You really pulled me out of a filthy world of bad deeds, words, and thoughts; actually, a bad 'reality' that I had blindly and unconsciously created for myself."
Getting fired for refusing to be involved in misconduct, a practitioner finds himself starting over in his career. Realizing nothing is coincidental, he seizes the opportunity to improve in his cultivation.
