(Minghui.org) Over the past 25 years of the persecution of Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party, countless practitioners have been arrested and tortured. Undeterred, they have held fast to their faith and refused to bow to the tyranny and violence. Their perseverance and spirit are like the blossoms of the plum tree that bloom in the harsh winter.

On the special occasion of the 2024 Chinese New Year, many practitioners incarcerated for their faith have managed to send their new year greetings to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa. They thanked him for teaching Dafa to the world, helping them understand the purpose of life, and enabling them to become better people. No matter how severe the persecution is now, they believe justice will prevail and they will one day be able to freely practice Falun Dafa in China again.

An elderly practitioner detained in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province, wrote: “Although I’m detained, I believe it’s only temporary. I must cultivate myself well, get rid of my human attachments, and treat everyone well under all circumstances.”

Another practitioner incarcerated in Nanchong City, Sichuan Province said, “Thank you, Master, for protecting us! No matter where I am, I will let people know how wonderful Dafa is and uphold my faith.”
