Germany: Promoting Falun Gong in Frankfurt
(Clearwisdom.net) On the 4th of June 2005, in a busy pedestrian street in Frankfurt city centre, Falun Gong practitioners held an event to expose the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) brutal persecution of Falun Gong and to promote the beauty of Falun Gong and "Truthfulness Compassion Tolerance".
A young man who had just come from Mainland China to study passed by our display table and stopped to look. A western practitioner talked with him in Chinese. The young man knew a lot about Falun Gong already. Some of his relatives practice Falun Gong and he had read the books himself. Since the start of the persecution, he has received Falun Gong truth-clarifying emails several times. He also obtained the Nine Commentaries on the CCP through email. He said that many people in China have read it and many people want to get hold of it and read it.
All of sudden, the young man said to the practitioner: "I feel that I have seen you before. As soon as I saw you, I felt that I met you before." The practitioner said: "Did we meet before and where?"
Both of them were shocked. Gradually, the young man came to remember that he received a video clip by email in which this very practitioner was narrating in Chinese why he went to China to appeal for Falun Gong in 2001. It was such a surprise that he now met the very practitioner in Germany.
Across tens of thousands miles, the predestined relationship brought the right persons together during this Fa rectification period.
Many people were interested in Falun Gong and they surrounded our table. A Russian national asked in halting German: "Do you have Russian books? I want to read about Falun Gong."
A boy of about eight or nine stared at practitioners demonstrating the exercises. A female practitioner gave him a delicate little handmade paper flower. He asked where he could learn Falun Gong. When he found out that Falun Gong practitioners practice the exercises in the town centre together almost every day, he slowly asked, "Do I need to fill in a form? If so, I must ask my mum first." When the practitioner told him that there was no requirement of any forms of registration and one is free to practice or leave at any time, with free books and music to download and free teaching of the exercises. A smile spread over the little boy's face. He said: "That's great! Thank you!"
