Texas: Introducing Falun Dafa and Clarifying the Truth at an Austin Mind/Body Health Expo (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On March 20, and 21, an annual mind/body health expo was held in Austin, Texas. Falun Gong practitioners from Austin and San Antonio and a practitioner from Germany utilized this opportunity to introduce Falun Dafa and clarify the truth of the persecution to visitors.
The Falun Dafa group's display booth appeared especially fresh and attractive. Practitioners prepared various kinds of truth-clarifying materials including exercise-instruction videotapes, video CDs, Dafa music audio CDs, flyers and hand-made paper lotus flowers. They also exhibited Falun Gong's main book Zhuan Falun published in different languages. Many people expressed great interest in Dafa, and at the same time they learned about the persecution happening in China.
Apart from local residents, visitors also included people from Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and other major cities in Texas. A visitor from Dallas visited our booth four times and expressed that this was exactly what her son needed, and she would definitely buy a copy of Zhuan Falun for her him. After learning about the persecution, another lady and her two teenage sons took the initiative to sign the petition postcards and asked for more postcards for their friends or classmates to sign. A visitor said that she came here to specifically looking for the Falun Gong booth because she heard that Falun Gong practitioners would attend this expo. Some attendees from other booths also came to visit our booth and introduced their colleagues, friends and family members to learn about Dafa.
During the two-day expo, practitioners demonstrated the five-set Falun Gong exercises beside their booth. In the busy exhibit hall, they looked especially peaceful and serene and attracted a number of people to watch their demonstration. Some people even learned the exercises on the spot.
Practitioners had arranged in advance a Falun Dafa introductory seminar the following weekend so as to fulfill visitors' wishes of learning the exercises. Many visitors requested detailed information about the seminar schedule and expressed that they would come to learn the exercises.
