2002 North Taiwan Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference Held Successfully (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) At 6:05 P.M., on the evening of June 23, 2002, after all the practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts, and after long and continuous applause, the 2002 North Taiwan Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference came to a successful conclusion.
All practitioners send forth righteous thoughts together
Around 12 P.M. both the main hall and side hall of the Chientan where the Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference was held were almost full. Many veteran practitioners moved to the side hall to let the new practitioners sit in the main hall. The practitioners always thought about others first and none were pushy or aggressive. The veteran practitioners took the initiative and shared many tasks.
At 12:45 P.M., the conference started with the host leading all practitioners in reading Teacher's new articles. Thirteen practitioners shared their experiences in the afternoon.
One practitioner reported how the 20 practitioners at their practice site united into a close unit and encouraged each other to progress together. Another practitioner shared his experience of promoting Dafa to nearly 40 thousand visitors from China at the airport every year. The practitioners looked inside themselves on all matters to bring the purity and beauty of Falun Gong to the people of Mainland China. One practitioner told the story of how over 20 family members obtained Dafa in less than six months. When this large family stepped onto the stage, the audience was moved to tears and applauded warmly.
17 family members obtain Falun Dafa in less than six months.
Some practitioners talked about how they overcame large tribulations and tests with righteous belief. Some shared their experiences of promoting Dafa to people from Mainland China. They said if we kept a compassionate and kind heart, even those policemen who were on "Vicious People List" could change their minds after being brainwashed by Jiang's Regime.
There was no break during the conference. Many practitioners listened to the speeches all the time without even going to the restroom. They tried to use every second to learn from others' experiences so as to progress diligently. Half of the attendants were new practitioners. They also listened to the speeches all the time and some of them were moved to tears by the Buddha's compassion and the mighty virtue of Dafa. Though they were new to Falun Dafa, they were thinking about how to catch up with Fa-Rectification after obtaining Dafa at a comparatively late time.
After the experience sharing, the Falun Dafa concert began. The first part consisted of songs accompanied by violin, piano, ancient Zheng (a 25-stringed plucked Chinese musical instrument in some ways similar to the zither) and Pipa (a plucked string Chinese musical instrument with a fretted fingerboard). Next was the video recording of the Symphonic Poem, "Falun Dafa is Good" which was performed in the National Music Hall. In the end, led by the "Zhen Shan Ren" Chorus, two thousand audience members sang the song "Falun Dafa is Good" together.
At 5:50 P.M., the host led the audience in reading Teacher's Poem, "Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions:"
A Great Enlightened Being does not fear hardship
Having forged an adamantine will
And with no attachment to living or dying
He walks his path of Fa-rectification openly and nobly
At 5:55 P.M., the hall became quiet. All the practitioners sent forth their purest and most steadfast righteous thoughts with compassionate hearts to save the sentient beings, and that concluded the 2002 North Taiwan Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference.
All the Taiwan practitioners form one integrated body. Practitioners from each district and area are of one body. The practitioners of the world are of one indivisible and undefeatable unit. Let's remember Master's words,
"With righteous thoughts and righteous actions;
He is diligent without letting up" ("A Righteous God")
and welcome the coming great and magnificent time when the Fa rectifies the human world with our mighty righteous thoughts and righteous belief.
