Falun Dafa Has Made the Greatest Contribution to Humanity

Mr. Zhang who practices traditional Chinese medicine brought his friend to see the day’s activities. He said, “Falun Dafa has made the greatest contribution to humanity. These people were driven out of China, but wish to save China. They help the whole world see the evil nature of the CCP. I admire and respect practitioners, they are great! My friend and I came to participate in the activities and show our support. I oppose the CCP because it is an inhuman regime. I will do my best to support Falun Dafa.”

He also said that he’s observed practitioners and feels they are the best people. They send a strong positive energy to the world. He thinks people should have gratitude and faith. He said, “From their actions, I feel that practitioners are shining lights. I read the book, Zhuan Falun. I went to Hong Kong and saw practitioners raising awareness about the persecution everywhere. I think they are incredible for bravely resisting the CCP.”


People stop to listen as practitioners introduce the spiritual discipline.


Falun Dafa’s Pure, Positive Energy Is Most Important to Earth and Humanity

Marie Minamba is a spiritual therapist. She said, “This is the first time I saw such a joyous scene. I can feel the pure, positive energy coming from the band’s music. This is what’s most needed in our world, especially amid the pandemic.”

“Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance are what society needs. We need these values to help us perfect our lives. We also need this to love one another.”

She said she loved the traditional costumes worn by practitioners and how the colors complement one another. She felt the blue and yellow looked lovely and reflected positive energy. She also said she was very interested in learning the exercises. She was shocked to learn of the persecution.

She said, “Humans should learn to respect and love one another. One should look within to find one’s true, kind nature and return to the path of tradition. Especially after the pandemic broke out, we must stop the CCP from persecuting Falun Dafa and infringing on human rights and freedom of belief. The beauty of ‘Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance’ should be spread everywhere on earth.”


Marie Minamba, a spiritual therapist said Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance guides the world’s society on the right path.
