(Clearwisdom.net) The following is a report from greater New York area Dafa practitioners on February 2, 2002.
Since January 31, Falun Gong practitioners started clarifying the truth of Falun Gong simultaneously at the former location of the World Trade Center (WTC), Waldorf Hotel, Lincoln Center and other locations.
WTC, the once magnificent place, was ruined by terrorists. The whole world was shocked, and people saw the terrorists' evil nature. Meanwhile, the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners by Jiang regime's state terrorism in China is destroying the fundamental nature of humanity.
In order to offer salvation to more sentient beings, in spite of the rain and cold, Falun Gong practitioners handed out Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials to passers-by. Many predestined people took the materials. However, many people missed this great opportunity that occurred only in history.
An expert from China coming to attend an international conference came to our booth, and practitioners talked to him warmly. We told him that we were Falun Gong practitioners and handed him the truth-clarifying literature. He didn't have any hostility and politely accepted the literature, telling us that there were practitioners at his workplace. He also asked whether we had jobs. We told him that we all had formal jobs. We intentionally took days off and came here to clarify the truth. Finally we bid each other goodbye fondly. Under the influence of the vicious propaganda in China, it is very precious that he is able to tell righteousness from evil. Because of the influence of Jiang regime's vicious propaganda, a lady who set up a booth asked some questions about issues she previously did not understand. Through practitioners' truth clarification and kind behavior, she changed her attitude. She said, "I had no idea about Falun Gong before. It will be great if everyone can conduct themselves just like Falun Gong practitioners." She also expressed her interest in Falun Gong, "I started Qigong and Taiji practice at an early age and won the championship in a provincial qigong contest. However, I felt that the progress of my energy potency was too slow. I am very surprised to see that every Falun Gong practitioner here can sit double cross-legged. In other schools, it would take several years to be able to do it." She expressed her gratitude and said goodbye. Another being was given the opportunity to be saved.
