Practitioners in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area Celebrate World Falun Dafa Day
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in the Dallas-Fort Worth area celebrated World Falun Dafa Day and Master Li Hongzhi’s (the founder) birthday on the morning of May 10, 2020. To adhere to the government's social distancing guidelines, their annual celebrations were held in small groups with adequate space between each practitioner at four locations.
It was a fine day for the activities. Practitioners wore yellow T-shirts and held colorful banners under a clear blue sky. Their activities created a beautiful, peaceful scene in the parks. Passersby could read their large banners that stated, “Falun Dafa Is Good,” “Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day,” and “Falun Gong Is a Voluntary Teaching.”
Ms. Liang who participated in the celebrations at Berkner Park in Richardson, said countless people around the world have had their health restored and have improved their morals by cultivating themselves according to Falun Dafa teachings.
Ms. Hu has been practicing the Falun Gong exercises at Russell Creek Park for years. “Over the past 20 years, Falun Dafa has carried me through difficult times and improved my health and spirit. I’ll cultivate myself more diligently and never let down Master Li’s compassionate salvation,” she said.
Since the practice was first brought to the public in 1992, Falun Gong has empowered more than 100 million people in over 100 countries with better health and has improved their morals. The main study book Zhuan Falun has been translated into almost 40 languages.
Huy, a Vietnamese student at the University of Texas at Arlington, has been practicing Falun Gong since 2015. He remembers first reading the Falun Gong book his mom shared with him and it answering so many questions he had about life. He said the book completely changed his view of life. He has since learned how to be a good person according to the Falun Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Huy said, “I would like to take this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to Master. He has taught Falun Dafa, which has benefited so many people, including me.”
