(Clearwisdom.net) In Taiwan, teachers, students and parents can freely practice Falun Gong. Falun Gong teaches people to be good, requires practitioners to always consider others first, and constantly improve their moral standard and mind nature. It allows practitioners to obtain good health and it is beneficial to any individual, family or the entire society. It has hundreds of benefits and harms no one.

Unfortunately, in China, some people with ulterior motives spread lies to defame Falun Gong in academic circles. These people spent large amounts of manpower, resources and time to counter a belief that promotes "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance". Teachers and students who practice Falun Gong are subject to persecution. Many teachers were fired and were forced to leave home to in order to avoid being illegally arrested. A number of students were expelled from school and lost their rights to continue their studies or graduate. Those officials who follow Jiang's persecution policies to suppress Falun Gong utilized all kinds of activities, and even composed exam questions in order to involve innocent students who did not yet know the facts about Falun Gong and position them against Falun Gong. Leaders forced teachers and teachers forced students and then students influenced their parents so as to achieve Jiang and his political group's goal of suppressing Falun Gong. Where would such kind of education lead youngsters to'

Education is a matter of fundamental importance for generations to come. From the sharp contrast between Taiwan and Mainland China, we feel that children in Taiwan are really happy, because they are able to study and grow up in the environment where the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance" is appreciated. Many children benefit from practicing Falun Gong.

The first row of the procession was a group of children. The youngest one was a 3-year-old girl. Her earnest demonstration of the exercises drew people's attention and won their praise. There were also two brothers in the 3rd, and 4th grade. They have been practicing Falun Gong for three years. According to their mother, prior to their practice, their health was not good. They often caught cold and suffered from asthma. Doctors diagnosed that the brothers suffered severe allergies and they had to take large amounts of medicine. After they started practicing Falun Gong, their health has become better and better. Over the past three years, they do not need to go to hospital or take any medicine. They are very healthy now.

Ms. Xu Hui-lin, who coordinated the practice demonstration, is a teacher from the An-hsi Elementary School. Four years ago she suffered from a severe disease that her nervous system seriously out of balance. She spent three years seeking treatment, from western medicine to Chinese medicine, from herbal medicine and folk prescriptions to diet treatments, from Qigong to Yoga, she had tried almost every method, but her health did not improve. One year ago, she encountered her schoolmate from college, from whom, she learned about Falun Gong. After reading through Zhuan Falun, the main teachings of Falun Gong, she was quite convinced by the principles illustrated in the book. After that she decided to practice Falun Gong and never give it up. Her health has gradually improved and her spirit and complexion became better and better. After witnessing improvements in her mental and physical health, her colleagues also became interested in Falun Gong.

Another teacher, Ms. Jiang Hui-min, from San-hsia Middle School also practices Falun Gong and has greatly benefited from the practice. She follows the teachings of Falun Gong to improve her mind nature and practices the exercises daily. Not only were her insomnia and depression cured, but the migraine and backache from which she had suffered for a long period of time were also healed without requiring any medication. She had never felt so relaxed and comfortable. Although her teaching load at the middle school is quite heavy, she said that she felt very energetic even when she had to teach six classes a day.

Some representatives from local communities were also invited to attend the sports meet. After listening to practitioners' explanation, they learned about the persecution occurring in China and could not believe that such a beautiful and peaceful practice was persecuted.

Apart from the exercise demonstration, a Falun Dafa information booth was also set up in the hallway. A lady was very happy to see the booth and said, "I've heard long time ago that this practice is truly good, but I did not know where I could learn it. Today, I finally found it." She took many free introductory materials and asked many questions.

In Taiwan, teachers, students and parents who practice Falun Gong often hold activities to introduce the practice at the campuses where they teach. Many campuses have practice sites. All of these allow more and more people to learn the beauty of Falun Dafa.
