(Minghui.org) As the 2018 Chinese New Year approaches, supporters of Falun Dafa from around China are sending their heartfelt greetings to wish revered Master Li Hongzhi a Happy Chinese New Year. In this collection, we present greetings from well-wishers in the following areas:

The Haidian District in BeijingChangchun City in Jilin ProvinceNanjing City in Jiangsu ProvinceHandan City, Shijiazhuang City, Pingshan County, and Fuping County in Hebei ProvinceZhaoyuan City, Zhucheng City, and Shengli Oil Field in Shandong ProvinceHarbin City, Suihua City, Heishan County, and Baoqing County in Heilongjiang ProvinceShenyang City, Fushun City, Yingkou City, Chaoyang City, and Yi County in Liaoning ProvincePengzhou City and Nanchong City in Sichuan ProvinceJincheng City in Shanxi Province

Although these people do not practice Falun Dafa themselves, most have family members, colleagues, friends, or neighbors who do. They have come to understand that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is wrong to persecute this peaceful self-cultivation practice that has transformed so many lives for the better. Many of these well-wishers have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations and subsequently experienced tremendous positive changes in their own lives.

Gratitude from a Retiree

A retiree in Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province writes, “My wife is 60 years old and she has practiced Falun Dafa for 21 years. The practice has given her good health and made her a better person.” He describes how she became more considerate and how her relationships with other family members and the community greatly improved.

Over the past 19 years that Falun Dafa has been so severely suppressed, the husband's attitude has changed from objection, confusion, fear, and worry to full support. “My wife's experience has shown me what Falun Dafa really is—that is, it can truly change a person into a better member of society. Happy New Year, Master Li!”

More People Should Follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance

A resident of Yantai City, Shandong Province, said he knows that practitioners are innocent, good people and that Falun Dafa is a righteous way. He remarked that, if more people followed Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the world would be a better place. He added, “The CCP is cruel for persecuting Falun Dafa. Sooner or later, the Party will come to an end.”

Understanding the Truth

A tax collector from Shandong Province said that, because of practitioners' consistent efforts to clarify the truth  to him all these years, he finally understands that Falun Dafa saves people, while the Party is doing wrong by suppressing this upstanding cultivation way. He wrote, “I know many [Dafa] practitioners and they are really nice people. I am grateful to Master Li for all this.” He said that many people are aware of the terrible things the Party has done and have quit their membership in the Party and its other organizations.

A resident of Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province, said that he recently began reading Zhuan Falun, the main teachings of Falun Dafa. “I have learned so much from it and now understand why practitioners do not give up their faith despite the harsh persecution,” he wrote. “Chinese communism has no future. And Falun Dafa is the best. Thank you and Happy New Year, Master Li!”
