At the end of September 2018, an increasing number of tourists from Mainland China travelled to Taipei in Taiwan - despite its extremely hot weather, as a result of the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday and National Day holiday in China. Falun Gong practitioners in front of Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall welcomed Chinese tourists as usual.
“The truth-clarification board is a gift from Falun Gong practitioners to Chinese tourists”
A tour guide told tourists, “You can see display boards such as these in almost every sightseeing place in Taipei, and they are called ‘truth-clarification boards’. This is a gift from Falun Gong practitioners to you. Please enjoy it! Alright, let us go inside to see the handover ceremony, and then we will come back and gather in front of the truth-clarification boards!”
As long as you see Falun Gong, you are going in the right direction
Another kind tour guide who always smiled told tourists, “If you travel in Taiwan, you are going in the right direction as long as you see a truth-clarification board. The truth-clarification board will always be our gathering place. I will wait for everyone at the board.”
“Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance” is the highest principle
A senior tour guide - Mr. Liu, said hello to Falun Gong practitioners when he came to the truth-clarification site. He said, “Falun Gong practitioners work so hard! It is 36 – 37 degrees Celsius, but you guys are still here despite the hot weather. You are amazing!” He then read the display boards carefully. He said, “We should support all beliefs that teach people to be good, however I cannot agree with people who say good words but do bad deeds and have evil thoughts.” He then gave Falun Gong practitioners a thumbs up, “‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance’ is the highest state of body and mind.” He stressed again, “‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance’ is the highest principle. We should understand it from our hearts”.
I have learned how to be more tolerant after hearing the truth
A tour guide and a leader of the same tourist group smoked and chatted besides the truth-clarification site. The tour guide suddenly told the leader in a loud voice, “Tolerate! You need to tolerate. ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance’ teaches you tolerance. You have to tolerate. If you tolerate, gradually you will not be moved by these things”. After hearing what the tour guide said, Falun Gong practitioners asked him, “Did you start cultivation?” The tour guide smiled and said, “You guys taught me too much. I was very petulant in the past. After being around you, I have started to tolerate things. Therefore, I am learning how to cultivate!”
Falun Gong has done a lot for our society
At around 12pm, Mr. Qiu, a resident who lives close to Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, passed by the truth-clarification site and said, "Oh, the weather is so hot. You guys are still here to contribute to society without complaint. Falun Gong practitioners are really nice and persistent. I have seen you for years and you are still here. You are really amazing!”
He also said, "Falun Gong has done a lot of things for our society without telling anyone - things like promoting Traditional Chinese culture, Shen Yun Performing Arts and the Shen Yun Orchestra, which are all beneficial and meaningful to society.” Mr. Qiu also said, “Some news outlets also said that the Taiwanese Government will cut off the water supply and electricity to the only communist temple in Taiwan, which will be destroyed eventually. Taiwan should not allow the Chinese flag to be flown here. I support the Taiwanese government!”
Soon after Mr. Qiu left, a young couple from Fujian, China came to ask for directions. The gentleman suddenly pointed to the display board and said, "I have seen these contents online using VPN (Virtual Private Network). My classmates all use VPN to read uncensored news and none of us believe in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I have also read the book ‘Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party’, which reveals the evil nature of the CCP and is truly convincing. In China, nobody likes Zemin Jiang. He has committed such huge crimes. Retribution will definitely come to him!” In regards to quitting the CCP, this gentleman did not know why he needed to quit the CCP. Dafa practitioners went over the contents on the relevant display board with him and helped him to quit the CCP. His wife said, “Maybe I should know more. Please give me some books and relevant materials”. Practitioners gave his wife some information and helped her to quit the CCP as well.
In the evening, a group of Chinese tourists waited for their next the truth-clarification site. Suddenly it started to rain heavily. Practitioners asked them to stand under a big umbrella at the truth-clarification site to shelter from the rain. While standing under the big umbrella, the tourists listened to a truth-clarification broadcast silently. When their bus arrived, practitioners took out umbrellas and escorted every single Chinese tourist to the bus. The female tour guide who did not say anything the whole time suddenly gave practitioners a thumbs up and nodded to practitioners. The male group leader kept saying, “Thank you! Thank you! Our whole group did not get wet because of you! Thank you!”
During the entire day, despite the hot weather, quite a large number of tour guides said “Falun Gong practitioners are amazing!” to Falun Gong practitioners.
