During the opening ceremony, Zhang Cuiying told of her experience of obtaining Falun Dafa. Four years ago, she suddenly became very ill; many of the joints all over her body were too painful to endure. Later, she luckily obtained Falun Dafa and started her new life. "Falun Dafa not only gave me a second life but also brought new life to my art.I find inner peace and serenity through Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and all of these are integrated into my painting." The beautiful paintings attracted many viewers.
Zhang used her personal experience of being illegally detained for eight months by Jiang's regime and enduring a lot of inhuman torture just because she adhered to her belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to expose Jiang's crime of brutal persecution against Falun Gong.
When a young German saw Falun Dafa practitioners' practice site, he kept praising it and inquired about the time and location of the group practice and wanted to learn Falun Gong. When he saw the pictures of the brutal persecution, he turned his head away and couldn't bear to see more. "These are too atrocious and too bloody! I will make every effort to help you end this persecution!"
A musician from Munich expressed his gratitude to Ms. Zhang and the practitioners who helped organize this art exhibition after he viewed the exhibition. He said that these art works were wonderful; people will feel inner serenity and find their true selves after looking at these paintings. He was shocked when he learned that only two years ago, Ms. Zhang had been detained in prison in China for about eight months and had suffered much torture. He thought that the persecution against Falun Gong practitioners in China was inconceivable and too brutal. He thought that the Western countries should not just consider business interests; they should fully use their influence to help stop the brutal infringement of Falun Gong practitioners' human rights soon.
What should be mentioned here is that this musician had strong sympathy towards practitioners' sending forth righteous thoughts. He has always believed that the mind and thoughts have some sort of power of penetration. When he is writing a song, he can always feel that power grow from his heart, penetrate through his head and emit to a place far away. He said, from now on, he would pray for Falun Gong practitioners from the bottom of his heart to help end the persecution. He believes that when more people do this, there will be great strength.
The beautiful paintings reflect Falun Gong practitioners' serene and harmonious inner world. Dafa practitioners' great compassion and tolerance are just like lotus flowers in this chaotic time. People will have their own judgment of the righteousness and viciousness.
