(Minghui.org) Practitioners held events in Sunset Park near Las Vegas on Sunday, September 11 and Sunday, 18, 2022 to introduce Falun Dafa to people. The activity was well received by local residents, who said that they felt peaceful and pleasant when they watched practitioners do the exercises. Multiple people said that they wanted to learn them.
One of the largest parks in Las Vegas, Sunset Park is an oasis in the desert. It has a walking trail along the lake where people come to fish, walk, and ride their bikes. It is beautiful and attracts nearby residents who come to exercise throughout the year.
Attracted by the melodious exercise music, many people stopped to watch practitioners as they did the exercises. Some read the informational brochures, while others asked where they could learn to practice Falun Dafa. Some said they wanted to learn and do the exercises right away after they talked to practitioners and learned more about Falun Dafa.
People Want to Learn Falun Dafa
A young couple watched the practitioners do the exercises. The husband said he felt a very peaceful energy, and told his wife, “Let’s try this.”
A practitioner told them what Falun Dafa is and how the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) persecutes the practice in China. The husband said, “I’m from Cuba which is also ruled by a communist regime. I know how evil the communist party is.”
The husband and wife asked in detail how to learn to practice Falun Dafa, and how many sets of exercises there are.
The practitioners took out a phone and showed them how to find Falun Dafa’s website, the book Falun Gong, and the video of Teacher Li Hongzhi demonstrating the exercises.
The husband wanted to learn the exercises. The practitioner showed them the first and second exercises. They said, “If we see you next week, we will join your group and do the exercises.”
After they received the Falun Dafa informational materials two women asked, “Does practicing Falun Dafa help people stay fit?”
A practitioner briefly introduced Falun Dafa to them, told them the basic principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and the benefits of practicing Falun Dafa. They really wanted to learn the practice and asked, “Will you be here next week?”
One of the women said that she would bring her younger brother who can speak Chinese to learn Falun Dafa.
People Feel the Field of Peace and Compassion
A woman watched practitioners for a long time and said, “The movements are so beautiful.”
Some people felt the peace and compassion of the field of Falun Dafa, and said, “You are so amazing. Although there is the sound of yachts, you are still so quiet and peaceful.”
A couple passed by and felt very comfortable and very good. They listened to the introduction of Falun Dafa and were excited about it. They hugged the practitioners and expressed their gratitude.
Another woman received a informational brochure and listened to the introduction of Falun Dafa. She said, “Thank you very much for telling me this. I will read it when I go back.”
Chinese Condemn the CCP
After learning the extent of the persecution in China, a man from Taiwan said, “I knew that Falun Dafa was persecuted, but I didn’t expect it to be so serious. The Chinese Communist Party is really evil.”
When he heard that the CCP harvests organs from living practitioners, he said that he heard about it before but didn’t quite believe it. He said, “How is this possible? Do they use any anesthesia? The CCP is terrifying. I didn’t expect that they would do such a thing. I have to stay away from them.”
Two women from China who have lived in the U.S. for many years said they are disgusted with the CCP’s policy of forcing every practitioner to sign a promise to renounce Falun Dafa. They said they know some facts about the persecution of practitioners in China. After learning more information about it, one woman said, “I really didn’t expect that the CCP was so evil. We are lucky that we are overseas.”
The practitioner explained to them the power of Falun Dafa in healing and fitness. They wanted to know how to learn Falun Dafa. They said that they were very happy to see practitioners doing the exercises in public. They planned to return the following week.
Background: What Is Falun Dafa and Why Is the CCP Persecuting It?
Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China, in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in over 100 countries and regions worldwide.
Millions of people who have embraced the teachings, which are based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and have learned the five exercises, have experienced improved health and well-being.
Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline’s growing popularity as a threat to the CCP’s atheistic ideology and on July 20, 1999, he issued an order to eradicate the practice.
Under Jiang’s personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organisation with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Dafa.
Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 23 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. Countless practitioners have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.
There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply China’s organ transplant industry.
