As the holidays approach, Falun Gong groups around the world are participating in community events celebrating the season of good tidings, as well as offering a unique look at traditional Chinese culture and Falun Gong's principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. This report features Falun Dafa groups' participation in Christmas parades in Canada, the United States, and South Australia.
When the 2016 Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference was held at National Taiwan University on November 27, elected officials came and wrote letters to show their support. Learning that many practitioners came from other countries to attend the event, one official was impressed. She said, “I could feel the positive energy of compassion—this is how Falun Dafa practitioners are different from other groups.”
Despite success as a commercial airline pilot, Captain Nguyễn Tuấn Dũng struggled with physical problems and perplexing life questions. Once super critical of others and high strung, Captain Nguyễn's health and outlook changed dramatically after he discovered Falun Gong and the life-changing teachings of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
The event, held at a downtown square, included Falun Gong exercise demonstrations, poster boards, and informational materials. Practitioners explained the practice and the persecution to many passersby.
The Falun Gong Tian Guo Marching Band, chosen to lead the 130-plus participating groups into the stadium arena, also won the trophy for Best of Show.
The film, which documents China's state-sanctioned practice of harvesting vital organs from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners, was viewed by students and faculty, including a kidney specialist from the university.
