Canada: Falun Dafa Welcomed at Ecosphere Fair Montréal
(Minghui.org) A Falun Dafa group held a booth at the Ecosphere Fair Montréal, September 14-15, 2019. The fair is the largest environmental event in Québec. More than 150 exhibitors and 40 presentations in the environmental and sustainable development fields were featured.
Many visitors showed great interest in Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong), a traditional self-cultivation practice which follows the guiding principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
After hearing the introduction to Falun Dafa, an employee from a children's hospital said she would introduce Falun Dafa to doctors and staff at her hospital.
A man from Burgundy, France, happened to be in Montréal visiting his son. He said that he had received a flyer about Falun Dafa in Chinatown a few days before. He'd also seen practitioners doing the exercises in France, and he was very interested in practicing. He talked with practitioners for a long time and planned to start practicing when he returned home.
A couple from Mauricie asked if they would be able to find an exercise site in their hometown. They explained that they had learned some of the exercises from the instruction video on the Falun Dafa website and felt strong energy. They had also started reading the main book of the teachings, Zhuan Falun.
Another man told a practitioner that he had been doing Falun Dafa exercises at home for years. He thought Dafa was great and said he always felt strong energy when he did the exercises.
Several people said that they had heard about Falun Dafa before, but did not have a chance to learn more. They were very happy to see Falun Dafa at the fair and learn more about this great practice.
