Since the advocacy to name May 13 as the "World Falun Dafa Day" has been posted, which is proposed by the Falun Dafa practitioners in North America and Europe, it has invoked enthusiastic responses from all over the world. Recently, suggestions and discussion comments continually received by the Minghui editor express one common wish that this world wide celebration activity needs to be held successfully. The purpose of the activity is to gain support from more governments and people in the world; help practitioners in China to strive for their rights of freedom of belief and the legality for cultivation and practice; let more people in the world learn about the tremendous change in physical condition and mental status that Falun Dafa has brought to over 100 million people in the past eight years; share with more people about the mental wealth and ultimate hope that Falun Dafa intends to bring to human beings; and let more practitioners further upgrade themselves through the course of planning and holding the activities.

In order to facilitate worldwide practitioners and people of all nationality to participate and/or visit the celebration activities of the first "World Falun Dafa Day", we have recently created a "World Falun Dafa Day" special column that can be located from the Content list on the left-hand side of the main page for It is to be used to post the schedules, written responses and related information reports of these celebration activities from Falun Dafa Associations, Assistance Centers and Practice Sites all over the world. Your cooperation in informing us of your activity schedules before hand is greatly appreciated.
