Boston, USA: Falun Gong Practitioners Clarify the Truth at Mid-Autumn Festival (Photos)

August 13, 2006 |   By a practitioner from Boston

(Clearwisdom.net) On August 6, 2006, a mid-autumn festival party was held in Chinatown in Boston. Falun Gong practitioners from Boston took this opportunity to clarify the truth to the attendees. Practitioners exhibited the "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" artworks, taught people how to fold paper lotus flowers, demonstrated the exercises, performed traditional Chinese dances and exposed the Chinese Communist Party’s brutality to the people.

A gentleman came to practitioners’ booth. Practitioners gave him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other "truth-clarifying" materials. He was eager to get a DVD of the Nine Commentaries, and asked if he could make copies to give to others. He was very happy to hear a positive answer.

A Jewish person initially thought that the Falun symbol was the same as Hitler’s, and was upset. Practitioners explained the meaning of the Falun to him. They also clarified the truth of the persecution and the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) harvesting practitioners' organs to him. The practitioners said, "We understand your concern, but our symbol has nothing to do with Hitler’s stuff. Our symbol is holy." The man calmed down and thanked the practitioners. He also suggested that practitioners post an explanation of the Falun symbol next to it, so that people would not have any misunderstandings.

The artworks move people: "How brutal the CCP is!"

An eighty-year old woman, who is a Buddhist, liked the paper lotus flowers made by practitioners very much. She comes to the practitioners’ booth every year at the mid-autumn festival party, and asks practitioners to make lotuses for her. She likes to chat with practitioners too. She said to a sixty-year-old practitioner: "Your skin is really smooth and glowing. You look like a forty-year-old." The practitioner told her that it was because she practices Falun Gong. The woman told practitioners that she has a copy of the Nine Commentaries. She and her friends have experienced the CCP’s brutality described in the book. So, she told practitioners that the content of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party is all true.
