Sweden: Introducing Falun Gong at Stockholm Culture Night
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners participated in Stockholm's popular Culture Night which was held in the Kungstradgarden on April 27, 2019. They introduced the ancient spiritual practice to the public and collected signatures on a petition which called for an end to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution.
Practitioners Werner and Sofia introduced Falun Gong in both Swedish and English. Many people stopped to watch the activities and took photos. Some joined in to learn the exercises.
One lady carrying a musical instrument said that she really liked the music and beautiful exercise movements. A practitioner explained that Falun Gong cultivates both one's mind and body by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion- Forbearance. He also told her about the CCP's persecution. The lady got excited and said she agreed with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She smiled and added, “It looks like I should change my way of life!”
A gentleman from China was happy to see the Falun Gong practitioners. He said he had recently talked to a practitioner and quit the Communist organizations. He learned about the Self-Immolation Hoax on Tiananmen Square while he was still in China. He said that when he watched the CCP's propaganda film he immediately knew it was a hoax. He said he wanted to learn the Falun Gong exercises, and joined practitioners to learn the movements.
