(Minghui.org) February 20, 2023 marked the 30th day since Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, published “How Humankind Came To Be” on January 20 (in Chinese).

In the past 23 years, Master Li has published on Minghui.org 229 short articles, long lectures, and congratulatory letters to various Falun Dafa experience-sharing conferences. The first one was “Master Li quietly watching the world from amidst the mountains after leaving New York following July 20th, 1999” published on January 19, 2000, while “How Humankind Came To Be” is the latest. 

Based on the readership that Minghui is able to track (to be explained at the end of this report), Master Li’s latest article ranked the 16th in just 30 days among the 229 publications. The most-read article is “On Dafa” published in May 2015.

The scripture of Falun Dafa is clear and direct with profound meanings. Although the topic is not a popular one in the era of the information explosion, the broad attention that “How Humankind Came To Be” has received demonstrates that the article attracts a wide range of readers and has a huge impact. 

One practitioner in Singapore said her older sister began to practice Falun Dafa in late 1998. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the persecution in July 1999, however, the sister believed in the CCP’s slanderous propaganda, stopped practicing, and occasionally made negative remarks about Dafa. When her older sister in Singapore told her about the article and read it over the phone, she listened quietly and said, “I understand it now. We need to be good people.”

In “A Story of Deities Coming Out of the Mountains,” the author, whose third eye is open, had a conversation with some deities, who expressed their gratitude to Master Li for publishing the latest article. “We have been cultivating for thousands of years, and finally, we understand,” one of them said. 

The article “How Humankind Came To Be”, in some 2,000 words has revealed many heavenly secrets. This article opens the hearts of readers and brings them blessings. In case you have not read it, below are a few sentences from the article,

“It is certain that going through hardships can help people to atone for their sins and karma. And anyone who manages to stay good-natured amidst painful situations and interpersonal troubles is going to build up merit and virtue and, as a result, will achieve the elevation of his or her soul.”

“The end times are now upon us, and the Heavenly Gate that leads out of the Three Realms has been opened. The Creator has been selecting for deliverance those who have done as I describe.”

“All of the madness now unfolding in the world was planned as such, for the final phase, by divine beings. Their goal was to test the lives here and see whether they were worthy of salvation, and give them a chance to, in the process, work off their sins and karma while going through difficult things. And all of this was done so that people could be saved and gain deliverance back to heaven.”

“The reason some people lead happy lives and others do not all comes down to rewards and retributions for past deeds.”

“The real purpose of building those up is to pave the way for you back to heaven. And that is what’s most crucial, not the brief round of happiness that they can bring you in this lifetime!”
