Falun Gong practitioners in Hong Kong held a series of events on New Year's Day. The group put on a performing arts show, a large-scale exercise demonstration and parade, and sent New Year greetings to the founder of Falun Gong, Master Li Hongzhi, with gratitude for the benefits of the practice and its teachings of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
“The goal of this event is to help restore the traditional moral standard,” explained the head of the Taipei district that hosted the parade. He was pleased to have Falun Gong practitioners join this event. “Practicing Falun Gong and following the principles of 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' is a great way to nourish the compassionate component of human nature,” he said. “It benefits society.”
