(Minghui.org) Thirty years ago, on May 13, 1992, Master Li Hongzhi first taught Falun Dafa, an ancient spiritual and meditation discipline, in a small park in Changchun City, Jilin Province.

Since then, the practice spread through word of mouth across China. Many people, although they don’t practice Falun Dafa themselves, they also identify with Falun Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and have received blessings for their support.

On the 30th anniversary of Dafa’s public introduction, which is also the 23rd World Falun Dafa Day and Master Li’s 71st birthday, many of the supporters extended their warmest greetings to Master Li and wish him a Happy Birthday!

In this report, we present a selection of 6 greetings from ordinary people in Shandong Province, China.

An entrepreneur from Zhaoyuan City Thanks Master Li Hongzhi’s Teaching

My mother suffers from dementia. None of my siblings was willing to take care of her. I am the only one who takes care of her.

At first, I felt very indignant. I wanted to take them to court. After I read Falun Gong materials, I was no longer angry. I understood that honoring and taking care of the elderly is a Chinese traditional value and virtue. Good is always rewarded with good and evil with evil.

The truth is that for a few years now, although I was the only one taking care of our mother, she has been doing well and did not cause any problems for me. And my business is doing really well. I made plenty of money. Those who know us say that we are good people and are rewarded with good fortune.

I am grateful to Master Li’s teaching. My family and I had withdrawn from the Communist Party organizations.

Thank you, Master Li, for your blessings! Wishing Master Li success in spreading Falun Dafa! Wishing Master Li a happy birthday!

“My Parents Practice Falun Dafa, I Learned to Be a Good Person”

My parents have been practicing Falun Dafa for over twenty years. Not only do they enjoy physical health, but they always think of others first and never minded personal losses. Under their influence, I learned to be a good person too. As a Chinese saying, “Filial piety is the most revered virtue of all.” Even though I do not cultivate Falun Dafa, I try to be a good person following the principles of truthfulness-compassion-forbearance. I live in another city from them, but I often send food, clothes, and other articles for daily use to my parents. I also help them financially. I support Falun Dafa. I do what I can to help spread the messages of Falun Dafa.

92-Year-Old Woman: “I Know Falun Gong Is Good Through My Neighbor”

Hello Master Li,

I am 92 years old this year. I don’t practice Falun Gong. But I know a woman who lives near me that practices Falun Gong. She often tells me about Falun Gong and I like to listen to her. I know Falun Gong is good because of her.

She is not related to me, but I feel that she is closer to me than my own family. She always bring me tasty food she had saved up and help me with chores. When I feel down, I like to tell her about it. After talking to her, I would feel my heart becomes lighter and I don’t feel bad anymore.

I cannot read. She gave me three Falun Gong amulets. I put them at the safest place at home. I take them out every day and hold them and say, “Falun Dafa is good.” I have been very healthy and able to take care of myself. I can cook, wash, and clean the apartment. I know that’s all because I have been protected by Master Li for believing in Falun Dafa. Thank you, Master Li! I sincerely wish a happy birthday to Master Li!

Farmer: “I Want to Follow the Principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to Be a Good Person Too”

Although I have not started cultivating Falun Dafa, I know from my heart that Falun Dafa is good.

There are several Falun Gong practitioners in our village. They often give me Falun Gong materials and tell me cultivation stories. As a result, I want to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person too, because good people are always rewarded with good.

I often tell my children and grandchildren that Falun Gong is good and that those who practice Falun Gong are all good people. I tell them not to believe what was said on TV and those are lies to defame Falun Gong. The practitioners are kind and they won’t take advantage of others. I like to be with them.

I hope that Falun Gong’s name will be cleared soon and those who persecute Falun Gong will meet their retribution. My entire family and I wish Master Li a happy birthday!

Brain Tumor Patient Recovered by Reciting “Falun Dafa Is Good”

I was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor and needed surgery at the peak of my life. After consultation with medical experts, I was told there was high risk with surgery and a very low success rate. I might not able to survive the surgery or I could be in a vegetative state for the rest of my life. My family and I were shocked by the news and didn’t know what to do.

A relative heard my condition and told me, “As long as you believe in Falun Dafa and recite ‘Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” sincerely, Master Li will help you and save you.” Without any other choice, my family and I started reciting those auspicious phrases. As a result, I could feel the moment I got out of the surgery and I recovered quickly. I have been completely recovered without any aftereffects. One of the famous surgeons in Asia thought it was a miracle.

I am so grateful to Master Li because he had given me a second life. My family and I wish Master Li a happy birthday!
