Taiwan: Falun Gong Becomes Focus of Attention at International Flower Drum Parade (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) To celebrate the National Day of the Republic of China, the Cultural Bureau of Hsinchu County, Taiwan held a Flower Drum Parade on Oct. 10, 2011. More than fifty groups participated in the parade, which attracted more than ten thousand spectators.
The Waist Drum Troupe of Falun Gong practitioners participated in the parade in high spirits. Dressed in golden-colored uniforms, the practitioners played their drums with bright smiles and uniform movements. They spread the message of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, and won wave after wave of applause. Spectators took pictures of the troupe and gave them thumbs-up. “Come on!” “Falun Gong is the best!”
The average age of the fifty waist drum troupe members was fifty, with the oldest in her seventies. However, they didn't feel tired after playing their drums in the hot weather for over an hour. As Falun Gong practitioners, they set a high standard for themselves. They performed every drum beat with their heads held high, their shoulders squared and bright smiles. Their demeanor spread the benefits and peaceful spirit of Falun Dafa.
Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Yang said, “Thanks to every member's selfless contribution and cooperation, the performance today was perfect!”
Falun Gong practitioners also distributed introduction materials and paper lotuses to spectators. Many people became interested in learning Falun Gong and asked for exercise site information.
