In the Same Warm Spring, Young Dafa Practitioners on Two Sides of the Taiwan Strait Have Different Experiences
(Clearwisdom.net) On Sunday, February 29, 2004, a young Dafa practitioners' class was held in Taozumiao, which meets on every other Sunday. Based on the experiences before, this time, the young Dafa practitioners' class had more activities and was well arranged. The young Dafa practitioners attending the class all felt that they benefited from it.
The Fa study focused on reading Zhuan Falun. For some young Dafa practitioners that could not read, their parents and adult practitioners patiently assisted them and read along with them. Many parents' feedback said that during consistent Fa study, children's characters unconsciously became purer and kinder.
During the story-telling period, the story named "Heirloom" mentioned a child who used to be lazy, but because he wanted to get an heirloom from his father, he turned himself into a promising young man. After the story, there was a quiz, and most young practitioners could accurately recall the episode in the story about "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."
Outdoor group exercise was also an indispensable activity. Predestined people would get to know Dafa by seeing young practitioners do the exercises. Young practitioners lined up and walked to the side of basketball court, where they began doing the sitting meditation. It was hot, but all of them persisted until the end.
After the exercises, on their way back to the classroom, the young practitioners handed out flyers to people who came to play basketball. Many passersby were amazed by the pure and noble demeanor of the young practitioners. They came over to ask what group they were. We took the opportunity to give them flyers, and sincerely shared with them about these children's positive changes after studying the Fa and practicing the exercises. When they learned that such a good cultivation practice, which has been spread to over 60 countries around the world and has won more than 1,000 awards and proclamations, has been brutally persecuted in China for more than four years, they all condemned the persecution.
In Taiwan's warm spring, young Falun Gong practitioners study the Fa in the shade, play with their friends, and encourage each other to be a good person following "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." However, in Mainland China, because of Jiang's group's brutality, ridiculous episodes of the persecution of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" have been staged one after another. The general public has been deceived by lies, and hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have been brutally tortured and abused, even killed. Countless practitioners have been forced to stay away from their homes to avoid persecution. In China there are countless children who should be innocent and carefree, but bear hatred toward "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" because of the Jiang group's deceptive lies. They should be the pillars of the country's future, but their pure hearts have been distorted.
In history, all those who persecute righteous beliefs have failed. We believe that more kind-hearted people will pay attention to the persecution, put an end to it as soon as possible, and bring the chief perpetrators headed by Jiang to justice. At that time, young Falun Dafa practitioners in Taiwan and in Mainland China will be able to study "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" in a peaceful cultivation environment and strive forward diligently together.
