Regarding Distributing Shen Yun DVDs
(Clearwisdom.net) One day I was distributing Shen Yun DVDs outside as usual. Some people were chatting on the street, so I went over to tell them about Shen Yun Performing Arts.
Everyone was happy to see the beautiful DVDs, and one of them said, "Please give me a few more DVDs, I will give them out for you." Another one told his friends, "I watched this before. It is really good. I would like to have another one. You can take one to watch at home!" Thus a lot of people accepted the Shen Yun DVDs. Some people said, "Thank you!" Some people asked for more copies for their families.
When I went out today, I met four older men selling items. A middle-aged man was selecting some things to buy from their booth. A fellow practitioner and I gave Shen Yun DVDs to the four older men. At this moment, the man who was shopping raised his head. He looked like a lower-ranking government official, based on his attire, appearance, and expression. The man said, "Are you Falun Gong practitioners? Falun Gong is getting political." We took this opportunity to clarify the facts to him and told him that Falun Gong is not political, but is a cultivation practice in the Buddha School. We told him that millions of innocent Falun Gong practitioners are brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and what practitioners have done is peacefully resist this persecution and clarify the facts to sentient beings.
The four older men listened quietly. They held the Shen Yun DVDs and told the government official, "Even if you don't want to watch this, we really would like to watch it."
The government official said, "Actually I have already watched it. I picked it up in front of my home. Your DVDs are really good." We told this man that we made these DVDs with our personal savings, and asked him to share these DVDs with his friends and family.
My fellow practitioner has two colleagues, one of whom is a military veteran. In the past, these colleagues did not want to quit the CCP no matter how this fellow practitioner told them the facts about Falun Gong. They did accept the Shen Yun DVDs, however, and after watching the performance, both readily withdrew from the CCP. The veteran requested a few more copies of the Shen Yun DVD for his friends and family, to help them learn about Falun Gong.
The above stories show that sentient beings are waiting to be saved. Shen Yun performances greatly contribute to this endeavor. We hope that fellow practitioners in China will consider distributing more of the Shen Yun performance DVDs.
