(Minghui.org) As we bid farewell to 2020 and usher in 2021, those who recently started to practice Falun Dafa have experienced the beauty of the spiritual discipline just like hundreds of millions of other practitioners. They are grateful to Master Li, the founder, for the opportunity to practice cultivation and they wish him a Happy New Year!

New practitioners, a husband and wife from Beijing said: “Thank you Master for your compassionate salvation. Because you didn’t give up on us, we were able to become your disciples in this extraordinary year of 2020. Although we still cannot clearly understand your teachings, we feel your immense compassion when watching your videotape lectures. We realize how difficult it must have been in resisting the persecution for the past 21 years.

“Master you have worked hard. We will always treasure this opportunity to practice cultivation that is so hard to come by. We will study the Fa frequently and be strict in following your teachings. Thank you Master for everything you have given us and for bringing us home.”

New practitioners from Dongfeng County in Jilin Province said their lives underwent an extraordinary change after they learned the facts about Dafa and realized that it is good, unlike the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda against the practice. An elderly family member suddenly recovered from a stubborn ailment. Another family member’s health improved and they no longer had to go to work with an ailing body. Now that they are practitioners, they are also doing things to save people. They are grateful to Master for giving them such a wonderful practice and they have pledged to do even better in the new year.

A new practitioner from Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province wrote in her greeting: “I had a low-grade fever for three months and doctors could not find the cause. My neck and stomach were in pain then and my whole body felt terrible. My relative who is a Falun Dafa practitioner told me to give it a try. My relative read Zhuan Falun to me and half an hour later I was alright. We read eight lectures together in four days. When I went for a health examination subsequently, I was fine. My whole family thinks it is a miracle and are very grateful to Master Li.”

A 14-year-old boy and his family of nine in Chiping District, Shandong Province sent a greeting wishing Master Li Happy New Year. He wrote: “I am 14 years old this year and recently started to practice Dafa. My whole family lives by the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. We hope Master will return to China soon and save more people. From now on, I will recite 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good' every day. I will be strict with myself and get rid of human notions.”

Below are a collection of greetings received from new practitioners in China. These well-wishers come from Jilin, Sichuan, Hebei, Jiangxi, Heilongjiang, Jiangsu, Liaoning, and Yunnan Provinces, as well as Chongqing, Beijing and Shanghai.
