(Minghui.org) The 2023 Year of Gui Mao has arrived. Practitioners in 30 of China’s provinces and provincial-level cities sincerely wish Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, a Happy Chinese New Year.

They are: Hebei Province, Hainan Province, Henan Province, Jiangsu Province, Shandong Province, Heilongjiang Province, Sichuan Province, Shaanxi Province, Guangdong Province, Liaoning Province, Fujian Province, Guizhou Province, Zhejiang Province, Yun’nan Province, Anhui Province, Shanxi Province, Jilin Province, Jiangxi Province, Hu’nan Province, Hubei Province, Gansu Province, Qinghai Province, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Chongqing, Xinjiang, Guangxi, Inner Mongolia, and Ningxia.

It was another year that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continued to persecute Falun Dafa and its practitioners. But Dafa practitioners have been able to follow Master to cultivate well and overcome tribulations. In this Fa-rectification period, they have spread the facts of Dafa to every corner of society so that more people could be blessed by Dafa.

Practitioners in the Haidian District of Beijing said they would do the three things better in the New Year. They wrote: “We will tell people the facts of Dafa and help save them with humbleness, compassion, and bigger hearts. We will send forth righteous thoughts well and really look within to improve ourselves. Instead of forcing our opinions on others, we will cultivate ourselves solidly with a pure heart, assimilate ourselves to Dafa, and return home with Master.”

In their greetings from Jingzhou County in Hunan Province, the practitioners were not disturbed by the incidents such as the “zero-out” campaign and the COVID situation. “We know the importance of constantly improving ourselves and saving people,” they wrote.

Practitioners in Shenyang City noted the passing of another year and that time is limited, so they are aware that it is critical to study the Dafa teachings well, cultivate themselves, and send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the vicious communist elements. They wrote, “Facing this pandemic, we will oppose all arrangements by the old forces, maintain firm faith in Dafa and Master, do well on our cultivation path, and return with Master.”

Practitioners from Yinchuan City, Ningxia, wrote, “We are very grateful to Master for all the compassion and protection over the years. We will continue to do well during the New Year, both in improving ourselves and saving people. Thank you Master for everything, and Happy New Year!”

A poem was also received:

The haze of cold winter is close to an end,as ice and snow melt with everything mends,Sentient beings are saved and enter a better tomorrow,when Master turns the Falun (Law Wheel) with cosmos renewed.
