(Minghui.org) Under the vast blue skies and radiant sun, Falun Dafa practitioners from the regions of Lombardia, Piedmont, and Veneto came together in Milan’s city center to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first public introduction of Falun Dafa. While spreading the beauty and wonders of the practice to passersby, practitioners also took the opportunity to express their heartfelt gratitude to Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, and wish him a Happy Birthday!
The bright yellow T-shirts worn by Falun Dafa practitioners with the words “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” printed on them, along with the peaceful exercise music attracted the attention of passersby.
Some female practitioners wore pink, yellow, and purple celestial maidens costumes. They distributed beautiful handmade lotus flowers to people.
“I am proud to be a Falun Dafa practitioner”
Thu, a Vietnamese practitioner from Lombardia, said, “The principles of Falun Dafa made me more optimistic. I’m no longer upset for no reason or become angry over trivial matters. I was also able to remain calm during conflicts.
“Ever since I embarked on a path of cultivation, I no longer feel lost and depressed. I found the meaning of my existence and higher moral values to abide by. Thank you, Dafa and Master.
“I am very fortunate to have found Falun Dafa. I am also glad to help out those who wish to learn more about Falun Dafa.”
Thu tells people about Falun Dafa. She said, “While telling people about Falun Dafa I met a man who looked very depressed. He stopped and started chatting with me and told me that his wife had passed away. I gave him a truth-clarification flyer and we talked for a long time. Before leaving, he shook my hand and expressed his gratitude.”
Thu said, “Thank you, Master! I am proud to be a Falun Dafa practitioner!”
“I became more optimistic and positive about life.”
Bianca, a practitioner from Piedmont, said, “My personality changed for the better after practicing Falun Dafa. I became more optimistic and positive towards life.”
Bianca became healthier after cultivating and no longer needs to rely on medications. “I feel full of energy,” she said.
“I use the principles of Dafa, like being honest and compassionate, to educate my children. After cultivating Dafa, I have become more altruistic and think for others. I no longer demand that others meet my expectations.
“I am sincerely grateful to Master and Dafa for giving me everything I have now,” said Bianca.
Experiencing the Power of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance
Giorgio started practicing Falun Dafa in 2019. He was unable to attend the activity but shared one of his cultivation experiences while clarifying the truth one time in Milan. That experience made him realize that when he tried his best to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, his surroundings and environment also changed for the better.
Giorgio said, “When I was demonstrating the exercises with other practitioners one time, a group of young people were loitering around and were being disrespectful. One of them even poked his finger into my ear. I was inwardly agitated but managed to conduct myself as a cultivator. No matter how badly he behaved I wanted him to be saved and I knew that I should behave according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
“I saw the group of young people after we finished demonstrating the exercises. They walked over and asked for a Dafa amulet!
“The change in their attitude was amazing. They were respectful towards what we were doing and the negative factors had been disintegrated.” Giorgio experienced the power of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance because he had thoughts of compassion.
“Thank you, Master!” he said.
Falun Dafa practitioners in Italy have been peacefully exposing the persecution and holding events to tell people about Falun Dafa, and how the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) is persecuting it.
