Seven sold-out shows in Kyoto, Nagoya and Tokyo gave Japanese audiences the opportunity to savor the beauty of Shen Yun. Many people appreciated the ancient history and culture of China brought to life in the performances, while others resonated with the spiritual content. Said one theatergoer, “My dormant heart was jolted back to life. Shen Yun has made me enlighten to the fact that we must treasure every day, and know why we are alive.”
The practitioners' lion dance and waist drum teams opened a series of performances on stage at the Chinese New Year celebration in Parramatta, a suburb of Sydney. The performers gathered before the show and displayed a large banner reading “Falun Gong teaches Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” attracting many spectators to take photos. “You are welcomed a lot. People like your program,” praised the event staff.
Five of the paintings by Falun Gong practitioners recently exhibited in the Pennsylvania State Capitol reflected the beauty of the ancient cultivation practice, while the other 10 focused on the brutality of the persecution. The exhibition offered a chance for the lawmakers to learn about Falun Gong and the persecution as they initiated a resolution condemning the state-sanctioned organ harvesting in China.
Ms. Zhang Jiqui recounts her experience at Shuanghe Labor Camp, where she was brutally tortured for her belief in Falun Gong.
A young practitioner shares experiences that taught her the keys to overcoming difficulties: looking inside, letting go of attachments, and studying the Fa principles.
"I'm thankful that Falun Dafa has given me such a great mom, so healthy and compassionate! I'm so proud of her!"
