(Minghui.org) Practitioners set up a booth on Unirii Square in Romania’s capital of Bucharest on March 11, 2023, to introduce Falun Dafa and inform people of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) ongoing persecution in China.
A young man in his 20s passed by and reached out for a small calendar on the table. Pointing to the principles mentioned on the front page—Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance—he asked, “What is this about?”
A practitioner briefly explained Falun Dafa and the persecution taking place in China. The man exclaimed, “Yes, I’ve heard about this. I studied Chinese economics and things related to China. I would like to know more about Falun Dafa.” After chatting with the practitioner, he said, “I think you are doing a meaningful thing. You give out amazing energy and this is all so fascinating!”
When he learned there was a practice site nearby, he smiled and said, “We will meet again for sure.”
A middle-aged man told practitioners he had recently begun practicing a qigong, so he was interested in spiritual practices like Falun Dafa. He asked several questions such as if the practice influences a person’s mental state and if it helps improve concentration. Happy with the answers practitioners gave him, he nodded and said, “Falun Dafa is great.”
A woman was drawn to the beautiful lotus flowers on the table and asked for information on Falun Dafa while her husband helped pick up brochures the wind had blown away. After reading a brochure, he asked where he could learn the exercises. When he was told there was one in King Michael I of Romania Park, he said delightedly, “That’s near where I live!”
He was shocked to learn that Falun Dafa has been suppressed by the CCP for 24 years. He said, “The principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance teach people to be honest, kind, and considerate. If we conduct ourselves according to these principles, we will not be deceived by the CCP’s lies.”
An elderly man pointed to a photo showing Chinese policemen beating practitioners and said, “God bless them [practitioners].”
Florin, who is in his 40s, said it was great that practitioners put up banners promoting Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He thought it was important for people to respect others. He said, “This is a fundamental value in any society. Young people nowadays should follow it, too.” He said he feels sad when he sees young people so absorbed in their mobile phones that they fail to look up to see the good things life has to offer. He wished practitioners good luck in their activities.
A group of seventh-grade girls from a school in Bucharest stopped to learn about Falun Dafa. They listened attentively as practitioners explained. They were impressed with the emphasis on moral values Falun Dafa stresses and said they hoped the persecution in China will end soon.
A young man asked how to practice Falun Dafa and why practitioners were handing out fliers. They told him Falun Dafa helps improve one’s concentration and relieves stress. He was interested to learn that Falun Dafa cultivates both the mind and body. He thanked practitioners for the introduction and left with a brochure and a lotus flower.
