(Clearwisdom.net) To commemorate Zheng He's adventure to the west with his treasure fleet, an annual traditional celebration was held in central Java from August 5 to 7, 2010. Falun Gong practitioners had a table at the festival and introduced their practice to passersby.

In 1405, Zheng He led a fleet and traveled to the west seven times, bringing Chinese culture, agriculture and industrial technology, advanced navigation technology, and trade to over 30 countries. His adventures helped the Ming Dynasty to keep good relations with other countries and promote the development of culture, economy and trade in the places he visited. People in southern Asia still remember this friendly messenger and keeps temples and historical sites in his memory.

Falun Gong's table and posters attracted many local Chinese and Indonesians' attention.

Practitioners patiently clarified the facts of the persecution and explained the benefits of the practice. Many people understood what has really happened in the persecution and asked to learn Falun Dafa.
