(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Tuscany held events in Parco delle Cascine in Florence on Sunday, May 9, 2021, to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day (May 13) and the 29th anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public and to wish Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, a happy 70th birthday.
The sky was clear and the sun shone brightly on May 9. Practitioners in yellow T-shirts with “Falun Dafa Is Good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” printed on them gathered in Parco delle Cascine in Florence. They wished revered Master a happy birthday and expressed their gratitude for his compassion and painstaking salvation.
They demonstrated the exercises to show the beauty of Falun Dafa to the people passing by in the park, hoping that more will learn about the practice and benefit from it.
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is an advanced cultivation practice of the Buddha school. It was founded by Mr. Li Hongzhi and is based on Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, the highest characteristics of the universe. Since its public introduction in Changchun, China, on May 13, 1992, Falun Dafa has spread to more than 100 countries and regions around the world, and hundreds of millions of people have practiced and benefited from it both physically and mentally.
