(Clearwisdom.net May 17, 2003) On May 13, Dafa practitioners in Japan held a concert at Koto-ku Culture Center in Tokyo to celebrate the 11th anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public.
A Japanese family of three generations performed a musical instrumental ensemble, and two Japanese practitioners sang songs Dafa practitioners composed in Chinese. Young practitioners from the Minghui School performed a chorus, sang, danced, and performed poetry recital. A variety of performances were cheerful, peaceful and touching.
During the performance, Japanese congressman Mr. Kino sent a congratulatory message. He wished that the basic principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance" would touch people's hearts and that all attendees would have an enjoyable night.
When rehearsing the song, "Coming for You," some practitioners were moved to tears. When performing the song later on stage, practitioners encouraged each other and sang out their compassionate wishes of saving the precious Chinese people.
It often occurred that once the music was played on the stage, the audience would applaud with rhythm, especially the chorus "Falun Dafa is good" in the end. As the practitioners sang on the stage, the host invited enthusiastic audience members to come up on the stage to join the chorus and sing the song once again. Then they sang it a third time. Practitioners and the audience sang the song together. The atmosphere was joyful and harmonious.
A young couple who just came to Japan from the north of China watched the performances from the beginning to the end, and they said excitedly, "Wonderful, so many people practice Falun Gong. This is different from the propaganda in China. The Party can only use lies to deceive common citizens."
