By Belgian practitioners
7th November 2001
When we heard that the Louvain train station is used by over ten thousand students every Sunday evening between 7 to 9pm, we all thought it was a great opportunity to tell the truth about Falun Gong to Belgian students. So we went to the station on time.
Shortly after we started giving out leaflets a station staff member in yellow uniform approached me. He asked what we were giving out. I then told him about Falun Gong and the persecution by the Chinese government. He asked if we had a permit to do so. When I said no, he requested me to go to the office with him. So I did, with a very calm heart. When we entered the security office I introduced myself to other staff and told them about the persecution. They were smiling to me all the time and said, “Normally we require permission for such activities… but this time you can give out leaflets at the station entrance.” Before I left the office I gave them a leaflet as well. They thanked me sincerely for that. I thought that perhaps it was indeed their chance to know about Falun Gong.
When I returned to the other practitioners, we still thought that the station itself rather than the station entrance, where we were standing, was the best spot to give out leaflets. However we did not have permission to do so. A western practitioner suddenly had a thought and said to the staff in uniform, “Please let us give out leaflets here. After we finish we will tidy up the floor and pick up the rubbish.” Seeing our innocent eyes the staff were moved. Just like that, we obtained the permission.
There is a store beside the station. I was going to get a drink from it. But I ended up chatting to the store owner for half an hour. He had been practising tai-chi for many years. I told him about the principles of Falun Gong and that Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is the highest principle in the universe. Before I left I gave him a leaflet. He was so moved that he said to me, “at this special moment on this special evening, you walked into my store and gave me this leaflet. You told me about Falun Gong. How amazing and miraculous all this is! I have a very special feeling right now.” I was also moved by the will to obtain the Fa [principles of Falun Gong] that came from deep inside his heart. I said to him in my heart, “I hope you will cherish this predestined relationship.”
