At 9:00 a.m. on December 22, 2001, the most solemn and sacred Falun Dafa Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference in Taiwan's history was grandly inaugurated at the Taipei World Trade International Conference Center. More than ten huge banners reading, "The Fa Rectifies the Human World," "The Fa Saves Sentient Beings," "Falun Dafa is Good" and "Falun Dafa is the Righteous Fa" etc. were hung outside of the conference auditorium. Over three thousand practitioners attended the conference. The splendid scene clearly showed the popularity of Dafa in Taiwan.

Ten minutes before the conference started, the practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all evils damaging Dafa. At 9:00 a.m. sharp, the conference commenced, with two masters of ceremonies reading the opening address. Then several practitioners, including a 58-year-old lady and a 6-year-old child, spoke about their cultivation experiences. In the middle of the conference, the Taiwanese President and Premier sent congratulatory telegrams, respectively, congratulating the conference for its great success.

At the same time as the on-going conference, a press conference was held in the lobby on the first floor. Six of the Western practitioners who participated in the peaceful demonstration on Tiananmen Square recounted their experiences. Finally, they held up the banner they had raised in Tiananmen Square and recited together, "Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa" (the banner, which read "Falun Dafa is Good," was seized by Chinese police, but later the practitioners were able to retrieve it.).
