(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners held activities on Meir Street, a famous shopping street in Antwerp, Belgium, on August 7, 2021. The practitioners introduced the benefits and wonders of cultivating in Falun Dafa after a year of being on lockdown due to the CCP virus (coronavirus). Many local people started to learn the exercises on the spot and condemned the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for persecuting Falun Dafa in China.

Wilfried Duchamps, who coordinated the activity, said, “Falun Dafa can help elevate one’s moral standards and improve physical health.

“We want to spread the beauty and wonders of Falun Dafa so more people can benefit from it. Another purpose of this activity is to expose the CCP’s persecution of Falun Dafa and have more people join us in stopping the ongoing 22 years of persecution.”

Many people stopped in front of the information booth to watch practitioners do the exercises to the melodious music.

Kaoutar and her son were interested in the practice and asked if they could learn the exercises. Kaoutar said the exercises were great and she learned each of them very attentively. After learning the complete sets of exercises, Kaoutar wanted to learn more about Falun Dafa and expressed gratitude to the practitioner for helping her.

Dominique Spiesens stood in front of the information booth for a long time while chatting with a practitioner. He said that one of his friends had recommended Falun Dafa to him and highly praised the practice.

Dominique said he was very happy and felt fortunate that he encountered practitioners. After realizing that another practitioner, Thuy Vu, lived in the same district as him, Dominique took down Thuy’s contact number and hoped to start learning the practice. Dominique said that he has already started reading the book Zhuan Falun.

Two young Vietnamese mothers were very happy to take time off from being at home to attend the activity. They cordially introduced the beauty and wonders of Falun Dafa to passersby.

Giang, a high school teacher, said that her biggest enlightenment from practicing Falun Dafa was to always think of others. She had quarreled with and resented her husband for not helping her with household chores and childcare. After abiding by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, she learned to be tolerant, and understand that her husband was truly busy with work. Through practicing the exercises every day, Giang feels energetic, even when she gets less sleep.

Another practitioner, Hanh said, “This is my first time attending a Falun Dafa event. I felt very good and blessed.” Tears started to roll down her cheeks, and she said, “These are not tears of sadness, these are tears of happiness.” She stated that she will try to attend more activities like this in the future. Hanh also attends group practice at the Plac de la Boerle in Leige every Sunday.

Hanh obtained the Fa from her sister, and many of her family members cultivate Falun Dafa in Vietnam.
