(Minghui.org) As the 2022 New Year approaches, practitioners from around the world are expressing their gratitude to Falun Dafa for the great spiritual and physical benefits they have received.

Falun Dafa practitioners from Los Angeles gathered in the Mile Square Regional Park in the City of Fountain Valley on December 19, 2021. With their hands in the heshi gesture in front of their chests, they recited “Los Angeles Dafa Practitioners Wish Revered Master a Happy New Year!” “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” Several local practitioners took photographs and made video recordings.

Practitioners faced with the turmoil of today’s society are not confused and can face difficulties calmly by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is an advanced cultivation practice of mind and body. It was first introduced to the public by Master Li in 1992 in China. Since then, millions of people in more than 100 countries have taken up the peaceful spiritual practice.

Chen Li was born in the 1980s and remembers occasionally hearing about Falun Gong while studying for his doctoral degree in the United Kingdom in 2014. “After completing my research, I found that Falun Gong is a practice that can cure diseases, keep people fit and teach people to be good, so I wanted to practice,” Chen recalled.

Practicing Falun Gong brought him health and wisdom. “My old injuries and pain were healed,” he said. “Dafa also helped open up my wisdom and enlightened me to better ways to solve research problems, so that I achieved very good results in a relatively short period of time.”

Falun Dafa enabled Chen to view the world with a more peaceful attitude. “I am calmer and no longer eager to achieve fast success and quick gains. It actually lets me achieve better results. With the job I am currently doing, my clients are introducing more clients to me.”

Marta Poprawa migrated to the United States from Poland. She had heard about Falun Gong five years ago, but only started practicing it two months ago.

Recalling her wonderful feelings while learning the practice, she said, “I don’t know how to describe it. I just felt energy flowing in my body and it was so harmonious. It was a very important and special experience.”

Stress used to make it difficult for her to relax, as her life was busy and she was always filled with a sense of urgency. “After practicing (Falun Gong), I feel very relaxed and very smooth,” she said. “While practicing, I am constantly examining myself and looking inward, trying to become a better person. This also allows me to communicate better with others.”

Psychotherapist: Falun Gong Cured My Depression

Psychotherapist Jane Yu Anderson provided treatment to patients every day, but she could not cure her own depression after her husband passed away. It wasn’t until after she started practicing Dafa that she felt reborn.

“The changes were shocking to me. I had depended on medicine to relieve my depression because my husband passed away. However, the depression disappeared after I practiced Falun Gong for three months,” she recalled. In addition, the spinal degenerative disease, bone hyperplasia she had suffered were all gone.

Anderson said that she could help clients with a clearer mind and she had more energy during the day. “It was amazing. You know I’m happier, more carefree, and can communicate with patients [the merits of life].”

“I am forever grateful to Master for giving me this gift. I don’t know how to repay this. For me, the best way to repay him is to be a good person and continue to do good deeds for others,” Anderson said.
