A Book Published in 40 Languages
(Minghui.org) Zhuan Falun, a book written by the founder of Falun Dafa, Mr. Li Hongzhi, has been published in 40 languages since the original Chinese version was published in December 1994.
According to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) statistics, in the 1980s, the most translated world classics were the Holy Bible and the Tao Te Ching, which were written a more than a thousand years ago. The Tao Te Ching has 250 translated versions in more than 30 languages. However, Zhuan Falun has been published in 40 languages even though it's been just over 20 years since it was first published.
Food for Thought
That fact itself should be food for thought for those who have been influenced by the Chinese Communist Party's slanderous propaganda about Falun Dafa.
One one occasion, some tourists from China visiting a tourist site in the West spoke disrespectfully to a Dafa practitioner who tried to talk to them about the persecution. One of them even made fun of the practitioner, telling her to carry their luggage. He taunted her, “Didn't you say you were nice people?”
I walked over and asked them not to raise their voices and to set a good example for the child in their group. I asked the child, “Have you ever heard the Chinese classic novel called Dream of the Red Chamber?” The child said, “Yes.” I said, “It's famous throughout the world. There are research associations that study this book in many countries. It has been translated into more than 20 languages, making it one of the most translated works in the world. Now, another book from China has been translated into almost 40 languages, surpassing the top Chinese classics, and has become a star in the history of world culture. Dozens of countries have designated a special day to recognize the author's contributions to humanity. He has brought pride to us Chinese people. Do you know the name of the book?”
The child answered, “No.” Curious, several of the other tourists asked what the book was. I told them, “It's the main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun.”
I continued, “How pitiful it is for Chinese people to show contempt toward this great work that has brought great honor to our nation! We Chinese have been terribly deceived by the Chinese Communist Party!”
Upon hearing this, the people who had said disrespectful words lowered their heads.
I added, “Falun Dafa is a great Buddha Law which teaches Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. It has uplifted people's morality and brought its practitioners great health and other benefits...”
Everyone in the group listened carefully and before leaving, decided to quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations.
