Despite the Chinese Communist Party's lies and persecutions against Falun Dafa over the last 20 years, more and more people have learned the truth, thanks to Falun Dafa practitioners' persistent and tenacious efforts to spread the truth around the world.
Chinese Supporters of Falun Dafa Thank Master
Since ancient times, Chinese people have always believed that, “Good will be rewarded,” and “Gods are watching.” People of faith have been protected by Buddhas and other divine beings. In today's society, many people who support Falun Dafa have personally experienced the power of the Buddha Law. Some have been saved from fatal diseases or protected from serious injury during potentially deadly accidents. More and more people believe that quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated youth organizations will help them avoid being implicated in the future for the Party's crimes. They feel protected by Falun Dafa.
A former cancer patient in Deyang, Sichuan Province wrote in her greeting, “I was diagnosed with stomach cancer 10 years ago. My condition was agonizing after having surgery. I was tortured by pain every day and felt I was on the verge of death. When my family and I had lost hope, we were fortunate to meet Falun Dafa practitioners. They told us the true story of Dafa and helped us quit the communist organizations. Following their advice, I started repeating “Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” My health improved gradually and I completely recovered within a few months. I'm now healthy! My family and I would like to express our deep gratitude to Master Li Hongzhi! Thank you, Master, for your salvation! Your grace is so profound!”
A veteran official in Zhaoyuan, Shandong Province wrote, “I was diagnosed with stomach cancer 5 years ago and went through surgery and chemotherapy. When I was in terrible pain, a former classmate visited me and told me to to sincerely repeat “Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” I did so every day and I quickly recovered. I haven't taken any medicine or gone through any therapy in the past 5 years, but I'm perfectly fine. The results of my annual exams are normal. I have been living a healthy life and I'm now back to my normal weight.
“I sincerely thank Master for giving me a second life! I have read the book Zhuan Falun that my classmate gave me and learned the principles of Falun Dafa. It's a heavenly book! Master Li has such mighty virtue! I thank Master for all He has done for me and wish Master a Happy New Year from the bottom of my heart!”
A supporter from Zhucheng, Shandong Province wrote, “Greetings to the great Master of Falun Dafa! I'm a 67-year-old living on Shunwang Street. I like reading Falun Gong flyers. Our whole family believes that Falun Dafa is great. We have been blessed by Falun Dafa.
“On the afternoon of July 16, 2016, my daughter-in-law had a head-on car collision. Both cars were completely destroyed, but both my daughter-in-law and the other driver were safe. The inspector said they must be blessed to have survived such a bad accident. We know that she is living proof that holding positive thoughts about Dafa brings one safety and blessings.”
A host of a We media in Beijing wrote that he had been using anti-Internet-blockade software to visit websites and learn the true story of Falun Dafa. He said he was no longer fooled by the CCP.
A family member of a Falun Dafa practitioner in Yantai, Shandong Province wrote that he had, “truly seen the nature of the CCP by reading Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and The Ultimate Goal of Communism.” He said he would do his best to help Falun Dafa practitioners and hopes that more Chinese will learn the truth about Dafa and have a bright future.
Believing in Falun Dafa Brings Blessings
A doctoral student in Zhengzhou, Henan Province and her family expressed their gratitude to Master. She wrote, “One of my classmates and I were on our way to the graduate school admission exam one day in 2015 when we ran into my aunt Mei (my mom's cousin). Mei gave me a brochure about Falun Dafa and told me to remember “Falun Dafa is great and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” She and her brothers are Falun Dafa practitioners. Their behavior is indeed a reflection of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I knew Mei's words were for my benefit. I sincerely repeated, “Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” When I answered questions on the exam, I felt that nothing was hard. It was a different experience from any other exam I have taken. I was admitted to graduate school without any problem.
“After telling them my experience, my mom, my brother and my sister sincerely respect Falun Dafa. Mom has read the book Zhuan Falun and started measuring her own behavior with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. My brother and sister were admitted to great universities and later, to graduate schools. My mom is proud of us. She is happy and healthy!
“We are very grateful for the blessings of Falun Dafa! On behalf of my entire family, I would like to express our sincere admiration and gratitude to Master and wish Master a Happy New Year! Greetings also go to all Falun Dafa practitioners in China and overseas who shoulder the responsibility of spreading information to people despite the risk of being persecuted. We wish you great success and wish for all kind people to be blessed by Falun Dafa!”
Mr. Yang in the Xicheng District of Beijing wrote, “My neighbor who lives across the hallway is a Falun Dafa practitioner. One summer day 20 years ago, local police officers disguised as water company employees broke into his home and confiscated his property. They put some items into their own pockets. Their behavior was no different than robbers. My other neighbors and I came out to help him. While the others weren't looking I slipped into his home, quickly put his Falun Dafa books and Master's portrait into a bag, and took them to my home. I hid them in a safe place as fast as I could.
“The police dragged the Falun Dafa practitioner downstairs head first. They almost ripped his clothes off. My other neighbors stopped the police and helped the practitioner straighten his clothes.
“Though it happened many years ago, I still vividly remember the scene because it was impressed so deeply into my memory. All the people in our building know that the Falun Dafa practitioner was a well-recognized great person and that the CCP persecutes Falun Dafa badly.
“The practitioner was thrown into a labor camp. After he was released, I returned his Falun Dafa books and Master's portrait. He was very touched and told me many things about Falun Dafa. My entire family decided to quit the Communist organizations they'd joined. Ever since then, good things have happened to us. My daughter who had been trying to have a baby but couldn't, finally got pregnant! She knelt down in front of Master's portrait and thanked Him for the blessing. She also hung up a Falun Dafa calendar which had a picture of a cherub. She gave birth to a baby boy. My grandson looks just like that cherub on the calendar! My family is filled with happiness. No words can describe our gratitude to Master. We gave our grandson the nickname “Tianci” which means Heaven's Blessing. We wish Master a Happy New Year and look forward to the day Master can return to China! Falun Dafa is great!”
Imprisoned Falun Dafa Practitioners Express Unshakable Faith
Some Falun Dafa practitioners in Chinese prisons and detention centers managed to send their greetings through various channels. Every greeting from imprisoned practitioners is heartfelt: Falun Dafa disciples are determined to stay firm in their belief and walk a righteous path of cultivation.
A practitioner in Chifeng, Inner Mongolia wrote, “We Dafa disciples have learned to work together and offer salvation to sentient beings. We are no longer attached to who is right and who is wrong. We are becoming more rational and clear-minded. We hope our maturity in cultivation will save Master some worry!"
A practitioner in Beijing wrote, “It was our highest honor to become Falun Dafa practitioners. With our historical mission in mind, we are fulfilling our promise no matter how rampant the persecution is!”
