Hong Kong: Former District Councilor Writes Poem to Wish Master Li Hongzhi a Happy Chinese New Year
(Minghui.org) Millions of Falun Dafa practitioners and people around the world sent greeting messages, homemade greeting cards, poems, and well wishes to Minghui.org to wish Falun Dafa’s founder Master Li Hongzhi a Happy Chinese New Year.
Mr. Lam Ying Yin, former councilor for the Sai Kung District, wrote a couplet at the Tianti Bookshop on February 10, 2021, to wish Master Li a Happy New Year. He also complimented Master Li for promoting the spirit of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance and said these principles cleanse peoples’ hearts and souls. He hopes that, since the epidemic has not ended, more Hong Kong residents will practice Falun Dafa.
Mr. Lam Ying Yin, an accomplished calligrapher, visited the Hong Kong Tianti Bookshop (which sells Falun Dafa books) and wrote a couplet on behalf of local residents: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” “Wishing Master Li Hongzhi a Happy New Year” to wish Master Li and Falun Dafa practitioners a Happy New Year.
Mr. Lam said, “I wish Master Li Hongzhi a Happy New Year! I wish him good health! I am most grateful to Master Li Hongzhi for guiding hundreds of millions of people to cultivate Falun Dafa. The whole world is full of appreciation and praise for Falun Dafa practitioners. Not only do they enjoy good health, but they also practice Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance in their daily lives.”
Mr. Lam sighed and said that the people in Hong Kong have been suppressed for the past two years, especially this past year. Using the epidemic as an excuse, the Hong Kong government implemented orders restricting peoples’ movements. This makes it very difficult for them to hold protests. Despite this, Falun Dafa practitioners kept doing the exercises in parks and clarifying the truth. “This really touches me,” said Mr. Lam.
This was Mr. Lam’s first visit to the Tianti Bookshop. Although the shop is not very large, he said that its books were, “Priceless treasures. Especially at this time when the entire world is facing the pandemic, life is very hard.” Mr. Lam hopes that more people can start to cultivate, because, he noted, “Falun Dafa practitioners cultivate every day and I believe that their immunity to the virus is definitely much stronger.”
The Tianti Bookshop staff and Falun Dafa practitioners also wished Master Li Hongzhi a Happy Chinese New Year. Ms. Liang Zhen, who runs the bookshop, said she is grateful to Master Li for guiding people to be compassionate. She said, “Cultivating Falun Dafa not only makes a person healthy, it also guides his moral character to elevate. Since the bookshop opened in September last year, more and more people have started to cultivate Falun Dafa. On the eve of this new year, we are grateful to Master for bringing the goodness of Falun Dafa to the people of Hong Kong.”
Bookshop employee Ms. Tan recalled two incidents. She said that a lady who came to buy a copy of Zhuan Falun told her that book had great energy so she wanted to buy one. Three days later she brought her son to the shop and bought another copy. She also bought one for her son’s teacher. “She said that her son’s teacher touched the book and also said that the book had great energy and asked her where she bought it.” Another person came in after watching an Epoch Times video. “Although things in Hong Kong became very tense after the implementation of the National Security Law, more people have come to look for Falun Dafa. They are happy to see the Tianti Bookshop here.”
Falun Dafa practitioners who continue to clarify the truth in Hong Kong’s bustling city center wish Master Li Hongzhi a Happy New Year.
Ah Zhen clarifies the truth on Mongkok Soy Street all year round. She said that ever since Hong Kong implemented the National Security Law, nearly every day presents Falun Dafa practitioners with new challenges in their efforts to clarify the facts. At times, people from the Hong Kong Youth Care Association have damaged or badly vandalized most of their banners.
The Hong Kong Youth Care Association, which is an arm of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), has been creating disturbances for Falun Dafa practitioners for eight years. Although it was disbanded last year, former members of the association continue coming to the truth-clarifying sites every day to take photos and create disturbances. Despite the interference, practitioners continue their efforts.
When the CCP virus (coronavirus) began spreading, life in Hong Kong became even more difficult. Ah Zhen’s new year wish is for more people to understand the truth and “remember Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good so that they can survive this catastrophe.”
People in more than a hundred countries and regions and of different ethnic backgrounds practice Falun Dafa. Mr. Li Hongzhi’s main book Zhuan Falun has been translated into more than 40 languages. Many governments and international organizations have officially recognized Falun Dafa with awards, and people are thankful to Mr. Li for bringing Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance to the world.
In 2007 Falun Dafa’s founder Master Li Hongzhi was ranked number 12 on the list of the world’s top 100 living talents. He was the top Chinese person on the list and is now the most influential Chinese person in the world.
