(Minghui.org) During the recent 19th annual World Falun Dafa Day celebrations, greetings were received from more than 50 countries to congratulate the 26th anniversary of Falun Dafa's public introduction and the birthday of Dafa's founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi.

Most of these greetings came from Falun Dafa practitioners, while many were from supporters of the practice. One group of practitioners in Heilongjiang Province, who often study the Falun Dafa teachings together, said they had all benefited tremendously from the practice. “Master Li has sacrificed so much to take care of us. We are all very thankful and excited about this special occasion.”

Spiritual Uplift

Many practitioners expressed that they are very fortunate to be Falun Dafa disciples. One family in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province wrote, “Master explained to us the purpose of life. We have now understood that fame and material interest are transient, and we know that Fa principles and the improvement of our mind nature are the most important. Thank you very much, Master!”

Two practitioners from a family in Jiangsu Province wrote in their greeting, “Our gratitude towards Master is beyond words. We will continue studying the Fa, doing the exercises, improving our mind nature, as well as telling others about Falun Dafa and sending forth righteous thoughts.”

Physical Improvement

An elderly practitioner in Baoding City, Hebei Province, wrote, “I am already 91, but people often say I am healthier and look younger than those in their 70s. I know that Master has been helping me along the way. Thank you, Master.”

A 67-year-old practitioner in Chicheng County, Hebei Province, said she was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago. “I visited numerous hospitals and none of the doctors could find a cure. Later, I learned Falun Dafa and my health recovered. Thank you Master for giving me a second life. My entire family is so fortunate and we sincerely wish Master a Happy Birthday!”

Becoming More Diligent

Practitioners in Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province, said they were in tears when preparing their greetings. “There is nothing we can do to return Master's compassionate care. We will continue cultivating ourselves solidly and be fully assimilated to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”

In a greeting from Linqing City, Shandong Province, practitioners wrote, “We are determined in practicing Falun Dafa because it is the most righteous and Master is great. On the remaining cultivation path, we will keep looking within to improve ourselves, let go of attachments, cherishing what we have done in the past, and saving more people.”

Greetings from Supporters

Many of the greetings received by the Minghui website are from people who have not yet taken up the practice. But by hearing about Falun Dafa and supporting the righteous, these people were also blessed. A government officer in Xi'an City, Shaanxi Province said he wad diagnosed with late-stage diabetes and the serious complications pushed him to a life-threatening condition. “A practitioner explained to me what Falun Dafa is, something quite different from what the media propaganda has claimed. He also suggested that I recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Now my health is back to normal. I am so happy to hear about Falun Dafa and glad to see the illness gone.”

A family in Weifang City, Shandong Province, said that everyone had renounced their membership in the communist party and they are happy as well as healthy. “My daughter has been married for five years but had no child. Later, she began to recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' and had a baby this February. The baby is very healthy and he likes Falun Dafa music a lot. Thank you very much, Master Li!”

A doctor in Huaihua City, Hunan Province, in his 70s, learned the facts about Falun Dafa several years ago. He wrote, “Falun Dafa has helped our society so much that I hope the persecution will end soon and that Jiang Zemin [the former dictator who initiated the persecution] will be brought to justice.”

A Bright Future

Practitioners from Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province, contributed a poem to the Falun Dafa Day celebration:

In the year 1992,benevolent Master introduced Falun Dafa to the world;We all benefited from it physically and spiritually,as the principles Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance shine throughout the society.

The old forces began to interfere,manipulating Jiang Zemin to persecute Dafa;We practitioners remain steadfast in cultivation,telling people the facts of Falun Dafa and saving them over these past 19 years.

Three hundred million people have renounced the communist party organizations,with two hundred thousand joining together to sue Jiang;After totalitarian rule that harms countless numbers of people,the communist party comes to an end.

The Buddha Fa sheds light upon every corner of the earth,making everything renewed and refreshed;The entire world celebrates Falun Dafa Day,as we are embarking on a brighter future.
