New Jersey, U.S.: Falun Dafa Practitioners Wish Master a Happy New Year
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners from New Jersey did the exercises together in Boyd Park in the city of New Brunswick and wished revered Master a happy New Year on January 1, 2021.
The forecasted cloudy, rainy day turned out to be blue skies. Golden sunlight and a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere emanated throughout the park. Although it was a little cold, practitioners felt warm doing the exercises together. They expressed their gratitude to compassionate and great Master and held a specially-made banner to wish Master a happy New Year.
Practitioners who joined the group practice included veteran practitioners who have practiced Falun Dafa for more than 20 years and practitioners who just began practicing in 2020. Through doing the exercises together, they gave more people an opportunity to learn about this beautiful practice. Passing vehicles and pedestrians were drawn by the peaceful scene of practitioners doing the exercises. Some vehicles honked their horns to show their support.
Mr. Li came to New Jersey before the outbreak of the CCP virus (also known as COVID-19) in early 2020. He then began practicing Falun Dafa.
“The CCP virus has ravaged the world in the past year and has had a major impact on every family and every person. This is unprecedented,” Mr. Li said. “Given such an environment, I am very happy to be able to participate in some Dafa related activities. Coming to the park and practicing the exercises outdoors on the first day of this New Year feels like a new beginning.”
Despite the cold winter wind, practitioners performed the exercises with dignified, peaceful and warm expressions on their faces. Mr. Li said, “I feel very warm when I’m with fellow practitioners. I no longer feel suffocated. When we gathered and did the exercises outdoors, I felt that the surrounding space was full of a positive energy field. The vehicles and pedestrians on the road also felt it. This kind of positive energy field is also affecting and changing the world little by little.”
“2021 will be an extraordinary year,” Mr. Li said. “I will do what I should do and cherish this eternal opportunity.”
