(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners gathered at the San Francisco Ferry Building on March 6, 2021, to demonstrate the five exercises and spread the wonders of the practice by telling people “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Some passersby learned the exercises right there and then, and many said they sensed the energy of the practice.

After a night of rain and wind, the air was pleasant and fresh, and sunlight radiated through the area. Many people were out walking, and some were visiting a nearby farmers' market. The peaceful and serene atmosphere at the group practice site attracted many onlookers who took out their cellphones to take pictures. Some people asked for more information about Falun Dafa while others learned the exercises on the spot.

Christopher and Shannon learn the second set of exercises from a Falun Dafa practitioner

Christopher was attracted by the beautiful and peaceful scene of Falun Dafa practitioners doing the exercises. He was recording the practitioners demonstrating the exercises when a Falun Dafa practitioner walked up to him and told him about the practice. Christopher said that he could feel an energy field. The practitioner continued by saying, “Not only do we practice the exercises, we also need to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be better people and get rid of our bad habits. Would you like to learn the practice as well? I can teach you.” Christopher decided to learn the exercises on the spot. Shannon also joined in and learned all five sets of exercises.

After trying the exercises, Christopher said happily, “My body feels alleviated. This is great!” Christopher wanted to continue learning the practice, so a Falun Dafa practitioner gave him a contact number. Christopher was horrified to hear about the ongoing persecution in China. He showed his support for practitioners by signing the petition to help disintegrate the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and said that the persecution should cease immediately.

Oak was curious about the activities and stopped to ask a practitioner what was going on. The Falun Dafa practitioner explained what Falun Dafa is and told Oak about the ongoing persecution of Falun Dafa in China, including the forced live organ harvesting from Falun Dafa practitioners. Oak was very angry to hear that the CCP was persecuting practitioners for their faith, and was shocked that things like that are allowed to happen in this day and age. He voluntarily signed the petition to disintegrate the CCP. The practitioner gave him a handmade paper lotus flower and told him it will bring him good fortune. Oak was very happy.
