Theatergoers in Texas, Maryland, Illinois, and California enjoyed a special holiday gift this season, taking in the exquisite performances of Shen Yun. "I’ve never seen a performance in all my life equal to what I saw today,” said one audience member in Baltimore. Many of the shows were sold out performances.
Falun Dafa practitioners have adopted creative methods when approaching people from mainland China to tell them the facts about Dafa and the persecution. Some shared how they overcame fear using different ways to break the ice, and how using compassion, leaving a positive impression, and dressing appropriately help to gain the respect of Chinese tourists, many of whom arrive with prejudice against Dafa due to the communist regime’s hate propaganda.
A waist drum team formed by Falun Gong practitioners in New York received a great reaction from the audience. Some attendees took photos with the performers, and others asked for more information about learning Falun Gong. Their eye-catching golden costumes caught the attention of both reporters and festivalgoers.
A woman suffering from incurable disease gave Falun Gong a try despite the ongoing persecution of the mind-body practice. She recovered without medical intervention but was later arrested for upholding her faith. Though she was released on bail, the trauma of her sudden arrest resulted in a relapse of her old illness. She died just months later.
For many mainland Chinese, traveling overseas is their first opportunity to learn about Falun Gong, the persecution, and the brutality of the Communist Party.
An alumna who saw the film Letter From Masanjia said, “I could not have imagined that such things could be taking place in a civilized society. The media in Taiwan should report on this.”
