Fa-spreading Activities on Mother's Day in Taiwan's Longtan Township (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) It is near Mother's Day, the second Sunday in May. More than 50 Falun Gong practitioners in the Longtan area took part in the Parent-Child Fun Competition held by the Longtan Township government at the Longtan Sports Park. They took the opportunity to introduce and spread Falun Dafa to the local people. At the opening ceremony, the head of the township, legislative committee members, and other local celebrities all praised Falun Gong. After viewing a Falun Gong truth-clarifying photo display and the exercise demonstration, the local people were also very complimentary.
Among the guests were teachers and students from ten primary schools of the township and several local officials, including Township Head Mr. Huang Renji and Legislative Committee Member Ms. Zhu Fengzhi.
About 50 local Falun Gong practitioners also took this valuable opportunity to spread Falun Dafa. After 7:00 a.m. practitioners arrived at the park and set up a booth facing the entrance. This position is so conspicuous that people can see it from quite a distance. Practitioners also prepared several dozen large Dafa truth-clarifying picture displays and placed them at the entrance. People were able to gain a deeper understanding of Falun Gong after viewing these pictures.
Dafa Display Booth at the Entrance
The opening ceremony was scheduled for 9:00 a.m., but by 8:00 a.m. people from all walks of life had started to arrive at the park. The sponsor invited Falun Gong practitioners to perform the five sets of exercises on the stage at 8:30 a.m. Besides demonstrating the exercises, the practitioners also gave clear explanations, from the gong mechanism to the Fa principle "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," from the brutal persecution on the Mainland to the worldwide spread of Falun Dafa. People were very interested.
Demonstrating the Exercises
At 9:00 a.m., the opening ceremony began. People from all social strata delivered speeches. Other than some general expressions of gratitude, they all mentioned Falun Gong. Township Head Mr. Huang Renji and Legislative Committee Member Ms. Zhu Fengchi knew of Falun Gong from before, so they expressed their appreciation to Falun Gong and also encouraged people to learn Falun Gong.
After the opening ceremony, a variety of competitive activities followed. The Youth Trade Committee sponsor encouraged everyone to actively join in the activities, and also invited Falun Gong practitioners to participate. Practitioners declined the invitation, because they wanted to introduce and spread Dafa. People were all glad to accept our flyers and learn the truth about Falun Gong. Quite a few people stopped and looked at our large Fa-spreading posters. One person spent more than an hour looking through all the pictures on our posters and then left. When we met him again later, he said he had introduced Falun Gong to one of his friends and had also given him a flyer. We gave him one more flyer, and he left happily. He seemed to have spread Dafa without obtaining Dafa.
Fa-spreading Photos and People Who Want to Know the Truth
Some people still felt puzzled after looking through our truth-clarifying pictures. They said that the Party on the Mainland would certainly be worried with so many people practicing Falun Gong. Practitioners told them, "The large exercise demonstration picture shows that the practitioners performed after being officially invited. Before Jiang mobilized political means to persecute Falun Gong due to his own selfishness, people were encouraged to practice Falun Gong. At the same time, however, other countries' governments around the world constantly issue awards to Falun Gong. Falun Gong practitioners are all good people. How can all the other countries be wrong?" This person had no response except to say that persecuting good people is definitely wrong.
The activity lasted until 11:00 a.m. This Fa-spreading opportunity was successful, with many people and officials highly praising Falun Gong, and many teachers and students able to view such a pure performance of the exercises. The head of the township was also very supportive, giving us many opportunities to conduct the exercises. We hope this Fa-spreading activity will be conducive to spreading the Fa to schools in the Longtan area.
