(Minghui.org) Shen Yun was established in 2006. Although it tours around the world every year, it is not yet able to perform in our country. When practitioners in our country want to help promote Shen Yun or sell tickets, they have to fly overseas. The cost of food and accommodation is high. However, in 2021, the Shen Yun Zuo Pin (ShenYunCreations.com –the streaming platform from Shen Yun) was launched, giving practitioners new opportunities to share the values presented in Shen Yun performances.
Introducing Traditional Chinese Values
The first story I’d like to share with you took place in a classroom. The children watched Shen Yun online and during the break they discussed what they saw. In another classroom, teachers and practitioners showed the students some Shen Yun Creations’ performances . The teacher told the children some stories about heaven and returning to tradition.
One four-year-old was always full of energy and sometimes became irritable. After watching Shen Yun Creations’ performances and listening to Shen Yun music, she is able to calm down quickly when she gets angry.
A five-year-old invited his friends to his home and showed them the Shen Yun Creations’ performances. He clarified the truth to his classmates. When they were leaving he asked them to remember, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
After the children began watching Shen Yun, they stopped watching social media. They like to watch Shen Yun Creations, and they sometimes dance to the rhythm of the music.
Anyone Can Appreciate and Spread Shen Yun
An elderly practitioner said that because of her age, it was difficult for her to open the Shen Yun Zuo Pin online. So, she bought a Shen Yun album. Her husband used to stop her from practicing the exercises and was unwilling to listen when she talked about Falun Dafa. When he saw his wife reading the album, out of curiosity he looked at it with her. The couple discussed the Shen Yun performances. She told some stories and clarified the truth to her husband.
After dinner, she asked her daughter and son-in-law to help translate the contents of the album. As they translated, she explained the legends presented in the performances. She also used these stories to clarify the truth. A few days later she decided to subscribe to Shen Yun Zuo Pin for the whole family to enjoy. Her son-in-law helped her show Shen Yun Zuo Pin on TV. Shen Yun has helped her reconnect with her family.
Learning about Falun Dafa and the Persecution by Watching Shen Yun Creations
A practitioner’s friend is a retired official, and is honest and kind. The practitioner tried to clarify the truth to him for six years, but he still misunderstood. A few days ago, the practitioner invited him to a tea party to introduce Shen Yun Performing Arts.
He went of respect for the practitioner, but he became interested in Shen Yun’s artistry. During the tea party, he asked if he could borrow a pen, saying that he wanted to learn more and would write down the URL link for Shen Yun Zuo Pin. The next day he and his family happily went to view the Art of Zhen Shan Ren Exhibition. As a result, his whole family learned the truth about Dafa and how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes practitioners.
Shen Yun’s Music Uplifts the Environment
One practitioner lives next to a park. People come and go all day. The surrounding environment is not quiet. He can’t concentrate on his work, and he finds it troublesome. It also affects his ability to focus when he reads the Falun Dafa books. He subscribed to Shen Yun Zuo Pin. He decided to play the music from Shen Yun Zuo Pin, and he opened his door so passersby could enjoy it.
One day while a young child walked past his house he shouted loudly and his grandmother couldn’t calm him down. The practitioner invited them into his home and showed them the Shen Yun Creations. The child immediately calmed down and watched a few pieces. His grandmother asked for the URL link so she could watch it at home.
“Shen Yun Is Amazing!”
A practitioner said that her husband suffered from insomnia for years, but medicines did not help. She decided to subscribe to the Shen Yun Zuo Pin and played the performances daily. Amazingly, her husband is now able to fall asleep quickly. She told her husband, “Look, taking medicine for years did not help, but after watching Shen Yun, you can sleep soundly. Shen Yun is amazing!”
Another practitioner needed to install a TV so that his family could enjoy Shen Yun. He hired an installer. After the installation was complete, he played a piece of music and a composition to test the sound and image. The installer was moved and asked about Shen Yun Performing Arts in detail. The practitioner explained the reason why Shen Yun artists can present such a top-level and wonderful show is because they follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
A week later, the man returned to check the TV quality. He told the practitioner that he began reading Zhuan Falun.
Spreading Information about Shen Yun
A woman sells advertising players. One day, a practitioner clarified the truth to her and showed her a trailer for Shen Yun. The woman watched all of them. A few weeks later, she went to the practitioner’s home and said, “Your trailers are so wonderful. I have installed them in our advertising players. Clients will test the equipment through the videos you sent (Shen Yun trailers).” She also asked for truth-clarification materials and explained, “I know many Chinese people, and I will give them these materials.”
A few days later another practitioner wanted to buy an advertising player. When he turned it on for testing, he was surprised to find that the pre-installed videos on the device were all trailers for Shen Yun and Shen Yun Zuo Pin.
I realized that every practitioner is not only cultivating and consummating himself, but the most wonderful thing is that we can assist Master to save people. We need to spread the truth to more people, including our friends and family.
Master said many times that Shen Yun’s mission is to save people. Shen Yun came to our country through the Shen Yun Zuo Pin website creating opportunities for Falun Dafa practitioners here to introduce Shen Yun.
Shen Yun Zuo Pin and Gan Jing World have indeed created new opportunities for all practitioners in those areas where Shen Yun has not yet performed live. It depends on whether we can enlighten to it and take action.
The above are just a few of the countless stories practitioners told me. Listening to them, I am touched and feel Master’s greatness, compassion, and how he gives people more opportunities. I hope these stories can help practitioners strengthen their righteous thoughts and join the effort to promote Shen Yun.
