Ukraine: City Official Recognises the Positive Effects of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance

by Ukrainian Falun Dafa practitioner

October 14, 2001 Sunday

On September 23, every year on the day of the City Construction Festival, there are always many people on the streets in one of the cities in Ukraine. Telling people the truth about Falun Gong at this time was a relaxed and happy experience. People listened earnestly to practitioners introducing Falun Dafa and unceasingly asked questions. We hope that everyone can step onto the path of returning to one's origin, returning to the place where wisdom of mercy, compassion and kindness melt into one body, returning to a place infinitely wonderful and full of happiness, returning to a peaceful and joyful place where thoughts and state of mind are pure and in harmony. Our practitioners have found this path [of return] in the law of the universe - Falun Dafa, and tread along this path whole-heartedly. Falun Dafa is enriching the thoughts of every living being. It teaches people mercy, teaches people how to use the glory of the heavenly law to awaken a person's innermost wisdom, causes the people to gradually remember that they are originally kind-hearted, causes people to regain mutual trust, to cherish and protect one another, to treasure one another and have mutual understanding.

Whenever we practised the Falun Gong exercises, many people would always gather around. This is because the practice and music is so wonderful and its splendour radiates in all four directions. At this time, the practitioners, who were in front of the truth clarifying display board, distributed the materials introducing Falun Gong and clarifying the truth to people and introduced the practice. They told people the importance of understanding this law of the universe, narrated the tragic experiences of the practitioners in China, as well as the valuable contributions that these practitioners have made for being steadfast in their faith in Falun Dafa and safeguarding Falun Dafa. They told people that never in the history of mankind has anything so world-shattering happened before. On the day of the festival, we invited the city’s cultural official to visit. He saw our Falun Gong flags from very far away, and read out loud the words on the flags: "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance". Then he said: "Very well-said! I have noticed that for the 3 recent years, the people in our city have become more and more kind!"
