Switzerland: Several Stories About Introducing Falun Gong and Clarifying the Facts About the Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Over the past year, Dafa disciples in Switzerland have been introducing Falun Gong and clarifying the facts about the persecution in China to the public as much as possible. During the process, many touching stories have occurred.
I. A Pre-destined Person
At the Health Fair in Fribourg, Swiss practitioners hired a booth and showed a videotape demonstrating the five exercises as demonstrated by Master Li.
One lady walked towards the television to watch more clearly. She stood in front of the TV and watched it attentively. Suddenly, she knelt down. It brought tears to the eyes of a practitioner at the booth who thought she must have some predestined affinity with Falun Gong.
Indeed, after she stood up, she walked toward the display table and asked for various materials. She requested a contact number to for someone to teach her the exercises and said, "I want to practise Falun Gong.
II. The World Needs Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance
The winter in Switzerland is very cold. At one particular time, Dafa practitioners promoted Falun Gong and explained the facts of the persecution near a mountain that was covered with snow. The temperature was very low because of the snow and frosty weather.
However, every Dafa practitioner was in good spirits. Some distributed materials, some explained about the persecution and about Falun Gong to people, and some demonstrated the exercises.
When practitioners were demonstrating the exercises, a couple in their fifties also tried to follow along. After practising the first four exercises, the lady found that one of the practitioners was demonstrating Chinese calligraphy. At her request, this practitioner wrote, "Life needs Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance" for her, and "The world needs Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance" in Chinese.
After practitioners translated the calligraphy into German, she held the practitioner's hand tightly and said, "That's right. That's right." She pressed her hands together in the Heshi position, in front of the chest, and thanked practitioners again and again.
III. "Is it dangerous for you to go back to China?"
On one occasion, Dafa practitioners were holding activities in Olton. A Swiss person took the materials, signed his name and then talked with a Chinese practitioner. He practitioner said that Falun Gong requires that practitioners be good people.
In reply he said, belief is an individual right and individuals should have freedom of choice. Jiang Zemin has brutally killed his own people, this is unreasonable. This just proves he is an evil tyrant.
He asked one of the Chinese practitioners with real concern, "Is it dangerous for you to go back to China?" The practitioner answered that some people with Chinese passports had gone back and had been arrested. He explained that although he had a Swiss passport, it is still dangerous.
"Oh, you have Swiss nationality."
"Yes, I have lived here for many years. My daughter was born here and finished her education at university."
"Really? What is she majoring in?"
"Her major subject is law. She is a trainee lawyer with a law firm at the moment."
"It's good to study law. She could prosecute Jiang Zemin in court one day."
The practitioner said, "Many famous lawyers around the world support Falun Gong. They have prosecuted Jiang in several countries. I sincerely hope Jiang will be sued at an international court before my daughter qualifies as a lawyer."
IV. "Falun Gong's light shines brightly."
There is a Chinese food store and many Chinese and people from Southeastern Asia go there to buy special eastern products. Dafa practitioners often clarify the facts to an Asian person who works there.
After learning that Jiang Zemin had been prosecuted in court for genocide, and crimes of torture, he excitedly said to practitioners, "Falun Gong's light shines brightly.
