Argentina: Members of Congress and the Legislature Send Congratulations to Celebrate World Falun Dafa Day

( World Falun Dafa Day is celebrated around the world each year on May 13. Elected officials in Argentina jointly sent a letter and video messages to Falun Dafa practitioners, in which they commended Falun Dafa’s principles and practitioners’ efforts to improve Argentinian society. May 13 is the 32nd anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction and also the 25th World Falun Dafa Day.

Argentina is located at the southern tip of South America in the Southern Hemisphere. Argentina borders Bolivia and Paraguay to the North, Brazil and Uruguay to the East, and Chile to the west. Although many thousands of miles separate Argentina from China and the Western world in the Northern Hemisphere, Falun Dafa is known and respected among members of Congress and other elected officials in Argentina.

World Falun Dafa Day celebrates Falun Dafa’s introduction and its positive impact on the health and morality of millions around the world. The occasion also highlights practitioners’ efforts to uphold their freedom of belief in the face of brutal persecution by the Chinese communist regime. May 13th marks both the anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction and the birthday of its founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi.


Congratulations on the Spreading of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance

The congratulatory letter is co-signed by 12 elected officials, including 7 members and former members of the Congress of the Argentine Nation, 2 members of the Buenos Aires Legislature, and elected officials from the Provinces of Tucumán and Misiones.

The letter states, “On the occasion of the 25th annual celebration and the 32nd anniversary of the public introduction of Falun Dafa, I express my greetings and congratulations on the spreading of the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.

“I welcome the fact that Falun Dafa, an ancient spiritual discipline of the Buddha School rooted in traditional Chinese culture, is practiced by millions of people around the world, contributing to a healthier and more harmonious society.

“I also note the efforts of Falun Dafa practitioners to raise their moral standards by living according to the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, while experiencing remarkable health benefits through exercises and meditation.

“The teachings of Falun Dafa impart the idea that when the heart is pure, the mind balanced, and the body vigorous, health and happiness are a natural result. That is why people who practice this spiritual discipline strive to leave behind addictions and bad habits, and families seek to live together in peace; at the same time, they invite the community at large to embrace what is virtuous.

“It is noteworthy that, during these difficult times, Falun Dafa practitioners throughout Argentina organise free activities for the community, on a voluntary basis, such as teaching the 5 exercises outdoors and organising online workshops, as well as different cultural activities.

“Considering that Falun Dafa was introduced in China by its honorable founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi, on May 13, 1992 and has been celebrated annually since 1999, I join in the celebrations for this year’s anniversary.”

The 12 elected officials who co-signed the congratulatory letter include seven members of the Congress of the Argentina Nation: María Fernanda Araujo, Carlos Alberto Fernández, Mónica Frade, Martín Maquieyra, Juan Manuel Pedrini, Héctor Antonio Stefani, and Rubén Manzi (MC). In addition, elected officials Gustavo Mola and Yamil Santoro Rudko, Legislators of the capital of Buenos Aires; Javier Noguera, legislator of Tucumán Province; Benjamín Terraf, Councilmember of Tafí Viejo (Tucumán Province), and Francisco Sebastián Rolón, director of Ceremonial and Public Relations from the city of Posadas, also co-signed the congratulation letter.

Director of Ceremonial and Public Relations Celebrates World Falun Dafa Day

Practitioners in Argentina received a salutation letter from Francisco Sebastían Rolón, director of Ceremonial and Public Relations, from Posadas, the capital city Misiones Province in the North of Argentina, which borders the countries of Brazil and Paraguay, and harbors majestic Iguazú Falls, one of the seven Natural World Wonders.

Sebastián Rolón first came into contact with Falun Dafa in 2014, when he was director of the Multicultural Center of Misiones, which hosted the Zhen Shan Ren International Art Exhibition. Upon seeing the beauty and experiencing the profound messages of the paintings, he was deeply touched and put all his efforts into making the exhibition successful, including acquiring sponsorship. From that moment on, Mr. Rolón has collaborated with Falun Dafa practitioners, inviting them to teach the Falun Dafa exercises in the Multicultural Center and to participate in the Misiones Book Fair. He has also read Falun Dafa’s main book, Zhuan Falun.
