Pennsylvania: Hongfa at "Wisdom and Virtue China Festival" of Philadelphia
The annual Wisdom and Virtue China Festival is an important event to showcase Chinese culture. It also offers a good opportunity to introduce Dafa and clarify the truth to people. A new Western practitioner realized the importance of clarifying the truth to Chinese people. Since the Festival took place in his high school, he took the initiative to contact the organizer for the exhibition booth.
Keeping in mind the importance of clarifying the truth to Chinese, practitioners prepared well for the festival. They prepared photo exhibits including pictures of the spreading of Dafa in China and overseas, and Falun Gong exercise introduction. Proclamations from the state and cities, media reports, and Hongfa flyers decorated the booth.
Practitioners wrote the characters Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance in Chinese for visitors coming to the booth. People lined up for the calligraphic writing, and practitioners explained to them the meaning of these three characters. One practitioner told a boy, "You should do things according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, treating others well and not fighting with others." The boy nodded in understanding.
Besides introducing Dafa to the visitors, practitioners took the opportunity to clarify the truth and distribute VCDs containing the truth information. Everyone passing the booth was impressed by the righteous and noble conduct of the practitioners. The energy field at the booth was strong and pure.
