Coral Island is near the famous tourist site, Patiya. The island is beautiful and has many Chinese tourists every day. A few Falun Gong practitioners took a trip as tourists and boarded a ferry. While waiting for the ferry, the practitioners passed out Falun Dafa introductory material in Thai and Chinese to the tourists and peddlers. Many people read the material carefully.

After boarding the ferry, a young Thai woman approached the Falun Gong practitioners on the deck. She is a psychology student at the university and wanted to know more about Falun Gong. She especially could not understand why Falun Gong is persecuted in China. The practitioners answered her questions in detail and helped her to have a thorough understanding of Falun Gong and the evil of Jiang's regime.

Her introduction to Falun Gong was the staged "Tiananmen Square immolation incident". After hearing the truth, she dismissed her misconceptions and wanted to learn the exercises, so a practitioner taught her the fifth exercise. She quickly learned the hand gestures and was able to sit with both legs crossed. At parting, she said she would come to the practice site to learn the other exercises.

Chinese People Hear the Truth

At noon, practitioners went to a restaurant to have lunch with many Chinese tourists. The restaurant played the music "Pudu" "Jishi" "Falun Dafa is good" and "Coming for you". In the beginning, when Chinese visitors saw practitioners in yellow T-shirts printed with "Truthfulness Compassion Tolerance", they were surprised and looked at the practitioners warily. The practitioners smiled at them in return. Gradually, they found out that Falun Gong practitioners are just like other tourists and behaved normally, and they put away their misgivings.

A little boy at a nearby table didn't eat his lunch, so his mother scolded him. He cried. A practitioner gave him a bookmark with a baby practicing Falun Gong on it. He stopped crying. The parent looked at the back of the bookmark which read, "The world needs Truthfulness Compassion Tolerance" and put it in a safe place. They thanked the practitioners and accepted some truth-clarification material.

A middle-aged man who looked like a cadre agreed with the practitioners after he heard the appeals for Falun Gong. But he emphasized, "If Jiang is in power, these problems can't be solved."

"If Everybody Acts According to these Three Words, the World Will Be a Better Place"

Three visitors from eastern China didn't go to the beach after lunch. They took the initiative to sit beside the Falun Gong practitioners, looking like they were waiting for something. The practitioners knew they wanted to talk, so a practitioner greeted them and they soon began to discuss questions about Falun Gong.

They didn't avoid the "sensitive" topics and asked many questions such as, "Does Falun Gong have an organization?", "4-25 Zhongnanhai Appeal", and "Tiananmen Immolation Incident". The practitioners patiently answered their questions and told them the details about the 4-25 appeal, its cause, how Premier Zhu Rongji's handled the affair, Jiang's envy and the facts of the staged immolation.

Then they talked about how the persecution of Falun Gong was very difficult for Jiang's group to sustain and how Falun Gong has spread to over 60 countries all over the world. The three Chinese nodded their heads in agreement. One practitioner talked about her own experience of practicing Falun Gong. She had not been sick for seven years and was always energetic. A tourist asked her why Falun Gong was so effective. The practitioners explained the principle of "Truthfulness Compassion Tolerance" and the oneness of mind and body.

They were very agreeable to the practitioners' explanation. At some point another young couple joined and listened to their talk. Minutes earlier, the couple thought the practitioners were talking "politics," but now they listened carefully and their attitude toward Dafa completely changed.

The guide called them to catch up with the group. A tourist stood up and said, "If everybody would act according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the world would be a better place." Everyone smiled and said goodbye to each other.
