In China and around the world, tens of thousands of Chinese have observed the New
Year by sending digital greeting cards to Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of the spiritual practice of Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa. While addressed to Mr.Li, the cards, beautifully displayed on the Falun Gong website Minghui.org, also send a message to Beijing.
The sending of these cards has become an annual event. They typically express appreciation and gratitude to Mr. Li, addressed as “Master,” a title of reverence for a teacher in traditional Chinese culture.
Over 16 years ago, the odds did not seem to favor this joyful custom taking hold. The Chinese regime launched a campaign to eradicate Falun Gong, which the regime’s leader, Jiang Zemin, expected to take three months.
At the time, an estimated 100 million Chinese were practicing Falun Gong, whose adherents perform gentle exercises and live according to the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. [FULL STORY]
