Taiwan: Special TV Program Introduces Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) With Falun Gong getting more and more popular in Taiwan, a health program of a TV station made a special program to introduce the five sets of Falun Gong exercises. It also includes many Falun Gong practitioners' sharing of their experience of self-cultivation.
The first session is an introduction to Falun Gong exercises. The TV station staff bought "The Great Consummation Way of Falun Dafa" and studied the exercise movements. They captured the most beautiful movements for their TV audience. On the morning of June 12, 2004, Falun Gong practitioners were invited to do a group exercise in front of Chang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall for the TV program. About 500 practitioners showed up.
Many people watched the video-making. One of them asked, "What is it? It must be very good because so many people practice it." Upon hearing the introduction from a practitioner, he decided to learn Falun Gong. A man and his wife were amazed so many people practice Falun Gong. They stayed around and asked many questions. A practitioner gave them excellent answers. They asked the practitioner where he had received his education. It turned out the man and the practitioner graduated from the same university. After learning that many scholars and specialists practice Falun Gong, the man said he would like to read the Falun Gong book too.
A mother with her three children asked if children could practice Falun Gong. She saw children among the practitioners and became curious if they practiced out of their own willingness. A practitioner explained that the exercises cultivate mind and body. It feels very good to do the exercises. Many of these kids are pretty active. They wouldn't have done the exercises if they hadn't experienced how good it is. Many children have improved their health and behavior and become better in school work after beginning to practice Falun Gong. Many schools have begun to teach children Falun Gong. The mother asked where she could send her children to learn Falun Gong. She left happily with the contact information.
A tourist from mainland China was surprised to see so many people practiced Falun Gong in Taiwan and that a TV station reported about it. She listened to a practitioner's introduction and looked very eager to learn it. The practitioner told her the so-called "self-immolation on the Tiananmen Square" was staged and how Falun Gong had been persecuted in China. The tourist said one of her friends practices Falun Gong. Her friend is very nice. Many people still practice Falun Gong in China. She also said although Chinese people dare not talk about Falun Gong, they don't trust the government. The Party has lost people's heart. She couldn't understand how Jiang Zemin came into power because people dislike him. She said she would tell all her families and friends about the truth of Falun Gong.
