(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa has been spreading far and wide since Master Li Hongzhi introduced it to the public in 1992, saving countless sentient beings with its mighty virtue. About 100 million people in China were practicing Falun Dafa before the Chinese Communist Party launched a nationwide campaign against the practice in July 1999. The persecution remains unabated in 2023, but true cultivators of Falun Dafa have never been deterred. Instead, its practitioners have become more steadfast and mature over the past 23 years.

On the occasion of the Chinese New Year (January 22), practitioners still detained in China’s prisons, detention centers, and brainwashing centers sent in their best wishes to Master Li for a Happy New Year and vowed to stay firm in their faith and live up to their mission.
