Taiwan: Pingtung Practitioners Wish Master a Happy New Year
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners from Pingtung, Taiwan, gathered at Hakka Culture Park to wish Master Li Hongzhi a Happy New Year on December 23, 2020.
Falun Dafa, also called Falun Gong, is an advanced cultivation practice of mind and body. It was first introduced to the public by Master Li in 1992 in China. Since then, millions of people in over 100 countries around the world have taken up the peaceful spiritual practice. Nevertheless, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a systematic campaign of persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, which continues to this day.
Practitioners had a group photo taken in front of two large banners that read, “Falun Dafa is great!” and “Wishing Master a Happy New Year!” They then demonstrated the Falun Dafa exercises to other park visitors.
Local practitioners have been clarifying the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong to residents of the city, even though the pandemic has put everyone under a lot of stress. They set up display boards and pass out fliers to passersby near the heavily trafficked Pingtung Park near the city center every weekend. Many people signed a petition condemning the CCP for the persecution of Falun Gong and the harvesting of organs from living practitioners in China.

“I will follow Master to the end”
Schoolteacher Zi-zhen benefited greatly after starting to practice Falun Dafa nearly two decades ago. The insomnia that had troubled her for many years disappeared as did the sick feeling during her periods.
She is no longer short-tempered and can handle things with more consideration.
“I am fortunate to have obtained Falun Dafa”
Li-fen and her husband Bai-shuan, both high school teachers, have practiced Falun Dafa for 18 years. They brought their four children to the event.
Being a schoolteacher, Li-fen noticed how the moral standards in society have deteriorated. Many students are addicted to cellphone games. Traditions and morality are no longer valued.
Bai-shuan said his friends and relatives often don’t agree with his way of educating children with tradition and values. But he is confident because he has faith and follows Falun Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
“It is the most fortunate thing in my life that I obtained Falun Dafa 18 years ago. Master, thank you very much!” said Li-fen.
