Taiwan: Falun Gong Exercise Demonstration at Community College Achievement Presentation (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 26, 2005, the San-chong Community College and San-chong National Elementary School in Taipei County, Taiwan jointly conducted the Spring achievement presentation. Falun Gong practitioners were invited to attend the event and demonstrate the exercises.
Community colleges provide local citizens with opportunities to study. They usually provide multi-subject courses and a friendly study environment as well as colorful community activities so as to have education rooted in the communities. The colleges also become service centers for local citizens to further educate themselves. Falun Gong practitioners have been in close contact with local communities so as to allow more people to learn about Falun Gong, a cultivation practice that is suitable for modern people.
At the beginning of the achievement presentation conference, Falun Gong practitioners were invited to demonstrate the exercises. They explained the practice while demonstrating the Falun Gong exercise movements. People attentively watched the elegant exercise demonstration and were attracted by the gentle, slow and smooth movements as well as the melodious music. Visitors went to the practitioners' booth to request more information and many asked where they could learn and practice the exercises.

A lady who came to San-chong from the Three Gorges in China told practitioners that several years ago, someone gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun. She also knew about the practice site but never practiced the exercises. Through practitioners' explanations, she said with surprise, "Wow, it turns out that Falun Gong is so wonderful!" She said that she would like to go to the practice site to learn more about the practice, and that she will carefully read the book Zhuan Falun after going home. Some people said, "You Falun Gong practitioners really have a good nature."
After the presentation conference, leaders of the community college said they hoped to set up a Falun Gong club at the college after school begins next semester.
