(Minghui.org) Practitioners in Poland held a parade on the bustling streets of Warsaw’s city centre on May 13, 2023 to celebrate the 31st anniversary of Falun Dafa’s introduction to the world and to wish Falun Dafa’s founder, Master Li Hongzhi, a happy birthday. Residents and tourists welcomed the parade, accepted flyers and talked with practitioners.
It was a warm, spring day, and the sun shown on the glittering, golden dragon as the parade started off from Plac Pięciu Rogów. Led by practitioners holding a banner with the words “Falun Dafa is Good,” came the dancing, golden dragon. The dragon team was followed by practitioners holding banners with messages such as “Falun Dafa Teaches Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance,” and “Stop the Persecution of Falun Dafa.” Next were practitioners demonstrating the exercises.
The parade passed through the city centre, passed by the president’s office and Warsaw’s Old City. As the parade came to an end, a double rainbow appeared in the sky.
The parade received the warm welcome and attention of many passers-by. One person joined the parade and followed it throughout the route. Many people took photos and videos. Some accepted flyers and talked to practitioners. After reading the information, some went online to search for information about Falun Dafa. All along the route, people talked to practitioners who were distributing flyers. They asked about the persecution in China and several people gave practitioners a thumbs up and praised their courage.
Practitioners Thank Master and Falun Dafa for Giving Them a New Lease on Life
There were few Falun Dafa practitioners in Poland in the early days, but the number has now increased and they can hold large parades and other activities to tell people about Falun Dafa. Furthermore, there is a continuous flow of new practitioners.
Requiring themselves to abide by the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, improve in their morality and differentiate right from wrong, every practitioner says they went through great, positive changes both mentally and physically. On this joyous day, they celebrated the 31st anniversary of the introduction of Falun Dafa to the world with hearts filled with gratitude.
Joanna, who lives in Poland, expressed her gratitude to Master for his benevolent salvation. She shared two miracles that she experienced. One happened to her granddaughter Basia, who is fourteen years old this year. Three months after she was born, she was diagnosed with severe learning disabilities. Despite trying all sorts of treatments over the past more than ten years’ time, nothing worked. The family was very worried about her.
Joanna said, “Shen Yun performed in Poland last year and I bought a ticket as a present for my granddaughter. After she watched the show and returned home, Basia happily described each performance to the family in great detail. She talked for more than two hours. This is the first time she’s spoken so fluently. Just watching one Shen Yun show helped this child become normal.”
Joanna said, “The wonderful energy from the Shen Yun performance helped my whole family witness the benevolence of the divine and the powers of Falun Dafa. The other miracle is that Basia’s parents no longer stop me from clarifying the truth to the family. This year, I brought even more grandchildren to watch Shen Yun.” She said that the child, who once suffered from learning disabilities, is now able to focus in school and is normal.
Joanna brought her granddaughter with her to join in the World Falun Dafa Day celebrations and to thank Master.
