LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Senate on Thursday adopted Sen. Dale Zorn’s resolution recognizing May 13, 2022 as Falun Dafa Day in Michigan.
“Falun Dafa was first taught publicly in China in 1992, and it spread quickly as people found greater health and spiritual well-being through its practice,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “Although practitioners have been persecuted for many years in China, Falun Dafa has been able to thrive in places like the United States and is now practiced in over 80 countries worldwide by people of all ages and backgrounds.
“As we congratulate Falun Dafa on their 30th anniversary, we also celebrate the freedom that enabled them to grow and support their efforts to end persecution in China.”
Senate Resolution 126 says that Falun Gong, also called Falun Dafa, is a peaceful spiritual practice rooted in traditional Chinese culture. It consists of meditation, four gentle sets of exercises, and a moral philosophy centered on the values of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance which practitioners take as a guide to their daily lives.
SR 126 also notes that since 1992, over 100 million people worldwide have become healthier, happier, and more altruistic through their practice of Falun Dafa.
