The audience's thoughts and comments

Mr. Chen of Beicheng City, Jilin Province, kept complimenting the New Year Divine Performing Arts show as he watched it on the DVD. He said that the sky-screen background was very attractive, quite grand, and beautiful, and that the song lyrics were very meaningful, special, and different from the typical Chines New Year celebration shows.

When the show's master of ceremonies announced the program, "The Rising Lotus," Mr. Chen knew it was about the persecution of Falun Gong. He commented, as a government employee, "How could it not allow people to say something different, let alone the fact that the practitioners didn't do anything to influence the livelihoods of others. We all have the right to express our opinions. The persecution is not acceptable." When the "Tang Drummers" appeared, he felt the sound of the drums was quite different from any he had previously heard.

When a young lay Buddhist finished watching the Divine Performing Arts performance on the DVD, she was so moved that words could not convey her emotions. When they saw the "Descent of the Celestial Kings," where the Gods and Buddhas descended to create human civilization, this lay Buddhist and her folks were very impressed, especially by the background screen, as well as the lovely songs and meaningful lyrics. They also felt that the two program announcers were quite entertaining.

Disappearance of Health Problems

My 70 year-old mother has had heart problems (i.e. heart blockages, heartburn, etc.) for several years. She had a weak appetite, as she often experienced heartburn reaching from her throat to her stomach. As a result, she had lost a lot of weight and energy. On Sunday, April 27, when my kids and I visited my parents' home, I thought about the 2008 New Tang Dynasty New Year Spectacular VCD. We had watched it a few times. It contained very good programs with beautiful costumes and music, as well as a background screen that showed authentic Chinese traditional culture. I thought of my mother, who hadn't ever seen good programs like this at her age, so I brought it for her to enjoy.

After returning to my home, my wife, kids, and I sat on the bed, a heat-able type of brick bed. We talked about appreciating the great programs on the VCD. My mother had said they were very good, as if the gods in heaven were doing the show, narrating the story of gods.

During May 1 the holiday period, we went back to visit my mother again. Upon seeing us, she exclaimed, "After watching the show that night, I had three pieces of pancake and now I'm still feeling very comfortable! I kept reciting 'Falun Dafa is good.'" While listening to her, I noticed that she seemed quite spiritual, and even her complexion had improved. I replied, "Mom, you've gotten a good reward after watching the program and understanding the truth of Falun Gong. From now on, you must continue to recite 'Falun Dafa is good.'"

Chinese People in China Love Watching the Divine Performing Arts Show

A dress shop owner in a small shopping center on Beijing Street in Dalian City, Liaoning Province, talked to a practitioner after watching the Divine Performing Arts DVD. She said it was real culture that portrayed China's five thousand years of history, and she thought it was quite fantastic.

A dried fruits store owner at Shahekou District, Dalian City said to a practitioner, "The stage design, choreography, and music were all stupendous. This type of high-level, quality show cannot be seen in a society under the Chinese Communist regime.

Ms. Liu, a 76 year-old resident of the Malanzi area in the Shahekou District, Dalian City, told a Falun Gong practitioner emotionally, after watching the DVD, "The performers were morally good and the costumes so pretty--in contrast to what we had seen on television, where performers wore costumes that bared part of their chests and backs and looked immoral!"

Ms. Xiaoli, a 23 year-old college student in Qingdao City, Shandong Province, praised the Divine Performing Arts show. She liked the background screens. She said, "They were very pretty and made you feel comfortable. The whole show was so much better than the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) 'New Year' show."

As I expected, all those who watched the VCDs of Divine Performing Arts that I handed out said that the performance was quite fantastic. They said that they wouldn't want to watch the CCTV show, which was nothing but a low-class show.

After watching the VCD, a girl of Uighur ethnicity said, "I loved it very much. It's so beautiful. But I'm wondering whether there will be a dance from Xingjiang Province next year? Those friends of mine who are in the business of videotaping kept saying as they watched that this was a real, appropriately elegant Chinese show! We think it is a first class, quality show, unlike the ugly ones produced by CCTV. My 90 year-old relative liked it so much that he kept talking about it.

Watching the Divine Performing Arts Show Inspires a Man to Quit the CCP

By a practitioner in Dongying

This past spring, a friend of mine had the opportunity to receive a VCD of the Chinese New Year Spectacular. So both of us watched it, along with our families, not only once but twice. As we were watching, this friend of mine told me emotionally, "The gala production is so unbelievingly beautiful!"

At the age of 60, my friend had a serious health problem. His lower vertebrae had narrowed, creating too much pressure on the nerve of his left leg and causing unbearable pain. The following day, after watching the VCD, he told me, "The Dafa VCD is a great miracle! I was still feeling serious pain in my lower back yesterday, but this morning I no longer have the pain. I have to thank Falun Dafa for saving my life!"

This friend of mine usually doesn't believe in the CCP's propaganda of lies. From what he experienced after watching the Dafa VCD, he now believes more in the greatness of Dafa. As a matter of fact, he decided on his own to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. In addition, he also urged others to do the same.

The Divine Performing Arts show VCD has brought a whole family a brilliant future.
