Introducing Falun Gong at Korean Harvest Festival in Toronto
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners were invited to participate in the annual Korean Harvest Festival in Toronto, Canada on August 28, 2016. They demonstrated the five exercises and raised awareness about the practice and the persecution in China.
Many visitors learned the exercises by following along with the demonstration or asked questions about the Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa.
Outraged by the communist regime's harvesting of organs from unlawfully imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners, many signed the postcards to Canadian Prime Minister and petition to Canadian Parliament, calling on them to help stop the persecution.
A Korean Visitor: The Book Zhuan Falun Is So Good.
Steve Lee, from South Korea, attended the festival. He said he was drawn to the Falun Dafa booth. After talking with a practitioner, he became interested in the practice and read the book, Zhuan Falun, at the booth for quite a while.
Steve said, “This book is so good. Falun Dafa can help people ascend in spiritual realm, to think from a 'whole universe' perspective. The principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are very good. All people should follow them.”
He signed the petition condemning forced organ harvesting, saying, “I cannot imagine how they [the Chinese regime] could do that.”
Acupuncturist: “The Energy Is Strong”
May-yee Yu is an acupuncturist in Toronto. She and her husband stopped at the Falun Gong booth to learn the exercises. May-yee said, “I felt energy flowing inside my body when I did the movements. The energy is strong.” They both signed the petition against the persecution.
Mother and Daughters: “Falun Dafa Is Positive”
Sungah Cheng is from South Korea. She brought her two daughters Victoria and Kate to the festival. Sungah said, “Falun Dafa is positive. I am very interested in learning it.”
She signed the petition against the persecution and said, “This is what I can do now. I hope it helps you.” Her daughters were delighted to receive small paper lotus flowers from a practitioner.
Invited to Participate in Next Year's Festival
John Ko, the director of the hosting organization, came to the Falun Dafa booth to thank the practitioners for participating in the festival and invited them to return next year.
