Taiwan: Young Practitioners Get Together to Exercise and Study the Fa (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On October 5, 2008, Falun Dafa practitioners held a bi-monthly experience sharing conference in Chiayi, southern Taiwan. Over eighty energetic young practitioners from many Minghui Schools came to the conference as well. They practiced group exercises and studied the Fa together. They were grouped into senior and junior classes and accompanied by their parents. After the event was over, many of the young practitioners were excited, and expressed interest in coming back again.
The program that day included Fa study and memorizing, doing the exercises, folding paper lotus flowers, blowing-up balloons, learning a welcome dance, playing dodge ball and educational games. Both the children and their parents enjoyed the fun and peaceful time together.
Becoming Healthy and Fit
Wenyu looked very healthy and fit,and she was very focused during Fa study. She is six years old and lives with her grandparents. She studies the Fa and does the exercises with her grandmother every day, and goes to the Minghui School in Chia-yi with her grandmother on a scooter every Saturday. "We learned a lot from the teachers, including basic manners, inspiring stories, and interesting games," said Wenyu.
Helping Her Teacher
Every day for the past year, Wenyu has finished her homework after school before she studies the Fa and does the exercises. She used to be rather rowdy and never stopped running around. Now she knows how to settle down and listen to her grandparents. She used to have a sensitive trachea and was always coughing and having colds. Practicing Falun Dafa has now made her healthy.
Improving in School
Shengyao is 13 years old. He started practicing Falun Dafa with his father when he was in fifth grade. He likes to join his father in Falun Dafa activities and clarify the facts about Falun Gong to people. Shengyao said he got better grades after practicing Falun Gong. He was previously an average student in elementary school, but the year after he began practicing Falun Dafa, he won a gifted student award from the county government. He has also become more patient and considerate of others after starting the practice.
Jiaming is Shengyao's younger brother. Jiaming said Shengyao's temper has become mild and he is less prone to getting sick now.
Learning How to Discipline the Children
Mr. Lin said he has benefited tremendously from the practice. He used to see doctors often, and spent over thirty thousand US dollars on medical treatments, but his illnesses were not cured until after he practiced Falun Gong. Because of his dramatic changes, his wife and children started practicing as well. He used to spank his children when they were being naughty. "Now when I discipline my children, I first think of Mr. Li Hongzhi's teachings. I ask myself to be truthful, compassionate, and forbearing before I discipline my children. Now they love it that I practice Falun Gong and they have become obedient," said Mr. Lin.
