North American Falun Dafa practitioners enjoy taking part in local summer festivals and celebrations, introducing the spirit-lifting ancient meditation practice at community events across the continent.
“I hope more people will watch this,” said a former professor who attended a recent screening of Letter from Masanjia at the Asian American International Film Festival in New York City. The film shares the story of a prisoner of conscience who managed get his call for help out to the world through a letter hidden inside a product he was forced to make. The professor said, “Although the film is about one person, it powerfully exposes the persecution.”
Youth Day, an international celebration of the artistic talents of young people, is celebrated in many cities around the world. Falun Gong practitioners took part in Youth Day Toronto and met many people interested in learning Falun Gong. After learning the benefits of the practice, one visitor remarked, "We should let more people know [about Falun Gong]. This is going to help our communities.”
Minghui summer camps give children an environment where they can focus on traditional Chinese culture and the teachings of Falun Gong. Through structured activities, they learn to apply Falun Gong's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in their lives.
"I have never actually known that meditation is a crime in China," said a passerby after learning about the persecution of Falun Gong at a recent rally in Hamilton.
The exhibit brought many who carefully contemplated each of the art pieces and were impressed by the modesty of the accomplished artists.
