[Pureinsight.org] As the 2022 New Year arrives, about 500 New York Falun Dafa practitioners gathered at the practice site in Flushing on Dec 12. They respectfully wish Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, a happy new year and expressed their gratitude for Master Li.
The practitioners said that they were the luckiest and happiest persons in the world as they studied the practice. Meanwhile, they hoped that if the society is in turmoil and hit by waves of epidemic, people can bear in mind Falun Dafa is good and Zhen-Shan-Ren is good. The auspicious words can bring them safety and brightness.
On the lawn of Kissena Corridor Park in Flushing, colorful flags were displayed. A huge exhibition board that read "Happy New Year, benevolent Master" stood tall. On the board with a lavender background, the Falun pattern hung high. Underneath it reads, "At the last moment of Fa-rectification, all Dafa disciples will fulfill the grand mission and assist Master in Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings".
The practitioners felt grateful and respectfully wished, “Master, Happy New Year! Falun Dafa is good! Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
On Dec 12, practitioners who have obtained the Fa for more than 20 years and new practitioners shared their experience.
New Practitioner: I Really Felt that my Body Had Been Purified
Liu Qian who obtained the Fa in 2019 said, “I could feel that Dafa does exist and my body levitating.” Her friend introduced Dafa to her. She had watched the video of Master’s lectures since the very beginning.
“Every time I attend group Fa study and parade, I feel comfortable right now. When I read Hong Yin from the first page to the last, I kept crying. I stayed in a peaceful mind.”
“Before I took up the practice, I was affected by many warped notions and modern arts, which gave rise to my selfishness. Dafa helped me return to the tradition and consider other people’s needs. I’ve benefited a lot from practicing Falun Dafa and have become a better person.”
Wen Jun who is engaged in management work began to practice Dafa ten years ago. In 2011, when her friends passed on Dafa books to her, she loved the books. Regardless of CCP’s slanderous propaganda, she was never deceived. Rather, she believes that Dafa books help people become good persons.
At her workplace, when conflicts arise, she’s tried to consider others and to be altruistic with the guidance of Dafa.
New Westerner Practitioner: Dafa Helps me Give up Bad Habits
Igor Jankovski, at the age of 33, is a new local practitioner. He began to study the practice in 2019. He works as a musician. Impacted by modern society, he was indulged in night club and addicted to smoking and drinking wine. After he took up the practice, he could feel an enormous energy field and quitted smoking and drinking. Moreover, he came to understand the real meaning of coming to the human world.
He said, “My experience sounds interesting. My body simply started to reject drugs. Dafa is exactly what I’ve sought. Though I’m unable to explain this clearly, I’m after some spiritual discipline. It is Dafa that gives me the breadth of mind.”
“Falun Gong imparts Truth-Compassion-Tolerance to us and helps us become virtuous. You’re not a truly good person if your behavior is not sincere.” With regards to his understanding of tolerance, he said, “One can endure a tough time, which means forbearance. Actually, forbearance has a deeper inner meaning.”
“The more you cultivate, the more the breadth of mind you can attain. The deeper you understand Fa teachings, the better you get along with others. Then everything can be positioned properly and you can manage your life at ease.”
“Falun Dafa Hao” Can Spare People from the Rampant Epidemic
Ms Xia, 57-year-old, obtained the Fa in 1994. Since she practiced Dafa, she had her illness healed. She said, “I was granted the second life, so I feel very thankful for Master. Currently, I’m physically stronger than when I was young.”
She said that before learning Falun Gong, she had a range of illnesses. Doctors once said that I would not live over 40 years old. She experienced a few abortions. To her surprise, after she’d studied the practice for a year, she gave birth to a lovely boy. She said that Dafa gave her such a harmonious family. All her relatives and friends were amazed at this and praised the power of Falun Gong.
Ms Xia said, “Falun Dafa is coming to save people in this Dharma ending period. Perhaps everyone in this world has predestined connections with Falun Dafa, while Master Li Hongzhi holds all sentient beings in His heart.”
“Sincerely hope that people can treasure the gospel of Dafa. Don’t be indifferent. When you firmly keep in mind the nine-character auspicious words, you can survive the pandemic.”
