Practitioners put on a parade with heavenly maidens, waist drummers, a dragon dance, and a demonstration of the Falun Dafa exercises. Some spectators learned the exercises, and many signed a petition calling to end the persecution of Falun Dafa by the communist regime in China. The event commemorates the anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction on May 13, 1992.
Many who try the Falun Gong exercises for the first time say they feel energy flowing through their bodies. At a free Falun Gong workshop, practitioners told the newcomers that doing the exercises was just the beginning and that reading Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, and trying to develop a deeper understanding of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance were even more important.
I have a very good friend who is a college professor, nearly 80 years old. He knew me before I began practicing Falun Dafa, and then saw amazing changes in my health and character after I began practicing. Intrigued by my experience with Falun Dafa and eager to learn more about the practice, he has visited me at each Chinese New Year holiday since 2012. After so many visits, my friend has taken up the practice himself and now has his own wonderful experiences to share.
The legislators commended Falun Dafa's values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and their positive impact on society.
Members of the public eagerly signed the petition condemning the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
As the authorities demand Ms. Cai Weihui renounce her faith, her husband encourages her with unconditional support.
