On the afternoon of January 14th, about two hundred practitioners gathered at the renowned Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, held their monthly group exercise practice and introduced Falun Dafa to the public. Along with the peaceful music, the practitioners did the exercises in a slow, smooth and gentle manner. Their peace and serenity formed a strong contrast with the busy, noisy and crowded environment, and caught the attention of passing-by tourists to slow down and take a closer look.

It was a sunny day with a clear sky. On the square, there were many tourists from Taiwan, Mainland China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, U.S., Canada, Britain, France, Holland and Israel. Among the people who stopped and watched the exercises with interest, some knew about Falun Gong and some had never heard of it. The exercise group seemed to be the major point of interest, and visitors watched the practitioners, read the introduction material, and took some photos.
An older gentleman with a strong accent stared at practitioners and said that his friend introduced Falun Gong to him a few years ago. He didn't start to practise because of the difficulty in doing the sitting meditation. But he kept an eye on Falun Gong. He knew that many people in Mainland China got healthier after practising the system and that just because too many people practised, the Chinese Communist regime suppressed it unlawfully. He said that he himself escaped to Taiwan from the persecution of the Chinese Communist regime. The Communist regime in fact is an irrational barbarian regime that "Says good words but does evil deeds."

A couple from Holland watched the exercise group for quite a while. When a practitioner went forward to talk to them the wife immediately stepped into the lines and started imitating the exercises. She said that as soon as she started, she could feel the strong energy. Seeing practitioners doing the sitting meditation, she asked in curiousity whether it would be very hard to have a peaceful mind. She mentioned that she had practised qigong for two years. Her instructor had left, so she had been looking for some kind of qigong to practise for a while. Unexpectedly, she ran into Falun Gong. She said that she would search online for a practice site once she returned to Holland.
A young man from Israel taking many photos said that he had never heard of Falun Gong and would be very happy to search for more information online after seeing such a peaceful practice. A tall Chinese person from Korea asked with a puzzled look, "Are there so many people practising all over the world? What are the benefits of the practice?" A practitioner told him, "There are over one hundred million practitioners of different ethnic groups from around 80 countries. Practising Falun Gong can make one healthy." He read the words "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" on the bookmark with a smile, nodded, and left with truth clarification materials.
In the afternoon, several groups of tourists from China came. Suddenly seeing the golden banner worded "Falun Dafa is Great" and so many people practising, they were kind of lost and some of them murmured. While walking, they watched the practitioners exercising and listened to a practitioner's explanation. One of them claimed that he knew more than the practitioner knew about the facts. When the practitioner told him that this was the most updated information, he quickly took the material and slipped it into his pocket. When they finished sightseeing at the Memorial Hall and walked back to their bus, they quickly took some photos of the exercise group and then left.

Due to its special historical background, the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall has become the must-visit place for many Chinese on their trips to Taiwan. Practitioners have been clarifying the truth there for a while. The group of practitioners, both young or old, men or women from different circles naturally become the focus of the tourists from Mainland China. They are the living evidence in the daylight, radiating sincerity and kindess, and disintegrating all of the CCP's lies and propaganda about Falun Gong. Groups of tourists from Mainland China come and go. All of them have predestined relationships. Practitioners take advantage of the opportunity to explain the facts to them.
