Thousands of visitors come to Santa Monica Harbor in Los Angeles every year. On this date, a lot of tourists enjoy special peaceful and solemn performances.
Mr. Albert Roman, the activity organizer, introduced what Falun Gong / Falun Dafa is, its history, and why it becomes so popular that at one time there were over 100 million Chinese actively practicing. “Why is Falun Gong so popular? Frankly, because it is very effective.”
The effectiveness is not limited to Chinese practitioners. Westerner practitioners also experience its magical healing power.
Ms. Maripa had back pain three years ago. Doctors told her that the only solution was surgery. Maripa had liked meditation for some time, so she wanted to try some meditation exercises before having the surgery. In a few short weeks, her back pain was gone.
Falun Dafa also brought Maripa peace in her heart. “Three years ago, I was very worried and stressed because of the back pain illness and financial difficulties, as are many other people. But now, when I heard that my job may be cut a couple of weeks ago, I am not scared or stressed. I have faith in the future. Thanks to Falun Dafa!” said Maripa.
