Practitioners were invited to participate in Flushing’s Chinese New Year parade on February 4, 2017. The Falun Dafa contingent included over 500 practitioners, led by the Tian Guo Marching Band and dragon dance, followed by heavenly girls, flag dance, and waist drum teams. Upon hearing the band, one spectator commented, “This is the most beautiful and pure music I have ever heard.”
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.
Falun Dafa practitioners learn that they should consider others first, and when encountering conflicts, they should take a step back and look within themselves for the cause.
