A large area of the United States was treated to a total solar eclipse this past week, with people from around the world converging on towns and cities located in the path of totality. Festivals were held in conjunction with this rare celestial event to provide entertainment as well as educational experiences. Falun Gong practitioners had a booth at a festival in Kentucky, where many people were interested in learning the exercises and wanted to know more about the practice.
Twenty-two practitioners shared their experiences of looking within, improving themselves, letting go of attachments, and raising awareness about the persecution in China. Practitioners who attended told us that that were encouraged after hearing the experience sharing from their peers. One said, “We should not overlook cultivation or our missions just because we’re young.”
A mother of five-year-old twins was sentenced to three years in prison and fined 30,000 yuan for refusing to renounce Falun Gong.
Falun Dafa practitioners have been a welcome part of the Toowoomba Languages and Cultures Festival since its inauguration in 2006.
Falun Dafa, and a mother-in-law's compassion, help a young woman turn her life around after some serious mistakes.
