Photo Report: Falun Dafa Spreads Around the World (3)
(Clearwisdom.net) Accompanied by harmonious music, Falun Gong practitioners often practice gentle and peaceful exercises in groups. Such a scene is not rare. From Russia to Greenland, from Northern Europe to Southern Asia, from North America, South America, and Australia to Africa, whatever the language or nationality, you can find Falun Gong.
Falun Gong began spreading from China in 1992. Because of its marvelous effects on purifying one's heart and its healing and fitness benefits, Falun Gong spread throughout China, and about one hundred million people were practicing it within seven years. On July 20, 1999, however, Jiang's regime launched a brutal persecution against Falun Gong. The whole world was startled by the news. The peaceful, low-key Falun Gong practitioners were thrust upon the world's stage.
Truth cannot be changed by power and violence, and people with kind hearts are moved by the principles of Truth, Compassion, and Forbearance. Falun Gong was not crushed by torture and lies, but instead spread throughout the world along with practitioners' peaceful efforts to resist the persecution. During the last more than five years of persecution, Falun Gong practitioners have persevered, like plum blossoms in the snow.
"Dafa is being spread far and wide. Those who hear about it are looking for it. Those who have obtained it are delighted with it. The number of cultivators is increasing daily and becoming countless." (Essentials For Further Advancement)
