The Tian Guo Marching Band, a float, an exercise demonstration, and waist drummers were all part of this year's Falun Dafa entry in the 150th Italian Heritage Parade (formerly known as the Columbus Day Parade) on Sunday. Both parade organizers and spectators were delighted by their positive message, colorful costumes, and energetic music.
Falun Gong practitioners in Germany held a rally and march in Munich on October 4, calling for an end to the Chinese Communist Party's persecution. The events coincided with Munich's Oktoberfest, giving many tourists and local residents an opportunity to learn about Falun Gong and the Chinese communist regime's ongoing persecution of the practice.
“I think Falun Gong must be very good when I see see that so many people are willing to participate and tell others what is happening,” said one person who saw Friday's parade in downtown Zurich. He was dismayed to learn that practitioners were being persecuted just because of their belief and appalled by the CCP's live organ harvesting: “That is pure evil. People should work together to stop it.”
One person at the rally said that silence on human rights issues because of economic interests is “lethal.” He said he signed the petition to put pressure on the Swiss government to take action.
A German practitioner recalls how she learned Falun Dafa twenty years ago and improves herself based on its principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
This is the first installment of a twelve-part series on the cultivation journey of Milarepa, the founder of the White Sect of Tibetan Buddhism.
