(Minghui.org) May 13 is the 23rd World Falun Dafa Day and it also marks the 30th anniversary of the practice’s introduction to the public. On this special occasion, practitioners in 30 provinces of China have sent their warmest greetings to the Minghui website, wishing a Happy Birthday to Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa. 

Practitioners in Pingdingshan City, Henan Province contributed a poem:

Gratitude to Master

Celebrated in heaven and earth, Falun Dafa has given the cosmos a new birth;Having waited for this generation after generation, we are now bathed in Master’s compassion. 

Assimilated to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, we practitioners have the mission of telling people facts for saving them;The 23-year-long persecution is a brief period in history,we will happily return with Master to the origin.

Practitioners from Xi’an City, Shaanxi Province, are very thankful for the guidance of Falun Dafa. “We are reminding each other to be good citizens by following Falun Dafa’s teachings. By looking within and identifying attachments, we will remain diligent and do better on the remaining cultivation journey,” they wrote in their greetings. 

“Despite the suppression in China, we have been maintaining group study every day,” wrote practitioners in Jixi City, Heilongjiang Province. “That helps us to align with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, as well as assisting Master in saving people.”

Practitioners in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province, said they are happy to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s introduction to the public. “The practice of Falun Dafa gave us good health and taught us the purpose of life,” wrote the practitioners. “We will tell people what Falun Dafa is, so that they can follow their conscience toward a better future. Thank you, Master Li and Happy Birthday!”

A poem was received from practitioners in Xinjiang:

Thirty years ago, Master introduced Dafa to the public with compassion, now there are 100 million practitioners in over 100 nations;Despite 23 years of rain and storm, we practitioners continue saving people as blessings from Dafa keep us warm.
