Falun Gong practitioners from Toronto assembled in front of the city hall, a local tourist spot visiting by tourists from Mainland China during the Chinese New Year vacation. The practitioners held an event to tell the public what Falun Gong is about, and exposed the persecution in China.
Practitioner Ms. Wang ran into Mr. Zhu from Beijing, who has double Ph.D. degrees in engineering and physics. Mr. Zhu wondered what Falun Gong really is, and whether divine beings truly exist. Ms. Wang talked to him for a long time, covering the basic teachings of Falun Gong, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, to the persecution of Falun Gong in China. They also discussed the spirituality of Falun Gong.
Mr. Zhu recognized the evil nature of the Communist Party. He quit the Party with Ms. Wang’s help, and told her that he would give careful thought to the topics they discussed.
Mr. Wang from Shandong didn’t have a positive attitude towards Falun Gong. When he saw practitioners at a tourist spot, he pointed to them and said to his son, “Look, they are Falun Gong, a group of psychos.” The young boy looked at practitioners curiously.
Practitioner Ms. Zhang, who is an artist, overheard them. She talked to the young boy, who told her he loves Chinese calligraphy. Ms. Zhang then showed him the pictures of her own masterpieces that were saved on her phone.
Mr. Wang’s family was attracted. The mother and the father both looked at the pictures with great interest. Mr. Wang then asked Ms. Zhang, “You are so talented, and for sure you can make a living. Why do you stand here, enduring people’s slams?”
Ms. Zhang told them in detail what Falun Gong is about, and how she has benefitted from practicing. She also talked about the persecution. Mr. Wang was touched, and gave Ms. Zhang a box of candy as a gift. The entire family agreed to quit the Party.
