As this year’s summer holiday finished, another practitioner and I were invited by a Canary Islands TV station to host a special Falun Gong programme together with the TV station’s director. The director is very interested in Oriental culture. Not long ago, he also started to learn Falun Gong. He especially devised this programme about Falun Gong.
We started the programme with an introduction explaining that Falun Dafa is an ancient cultivation method from China. People can achieve the effect of improving their health and purifying their mind through practising the Falun Gong exercises and studying the teachings.
My fellow practitioner then talked about his own experience of cultivation practice. He said that his health improved considerably only a few months after he started to practise. He used to have a bad stomach, back problems and always felt tired. Now these problems have all disappeared and he has a peaceful, happy mind with lots of energy. He finished talking about his experiences by recommending all the viewers to try Falun Gong for themselves.
The programme then moved on to focus on the campaign of persecution that has been waged against Falun Gong practitioners in China for the past six years. At least 2,780 deaths through police abuse and torture have been confirmed, with government sources inside China indicating that the actual number could be has high as 7,000 or more. The programme displayed pictures of some of the persecution cases from China and also exposed the self-immolation that the Chinese Communist Party staged on Tiananmen Square and then blamed on Falun Gong practitioners.
Presenting this programme was an important experience for me. For the first time I attended and hosted a TV programme in front of all the Canary Islands inhabitants and the first task for me was to overcome my fear. In the beginning, like most people, I was nervous and my heart beat fast. But gradually I became comfortable with what I was doing. I knew that what I was doing could help more people understand the goodness of Falun Gong and become concerned for the innocent practitioners who are suffering such brutal persecution in China. I told the viewers about my personal story of cultivating Falun Gong and the huge positive changes it brought to my body and mind.
Through this experience, I learned more about the power of Falun Gong and I get rid of some of my fears at the same time. Now I know that I can narrate well and feel confident in talking to people about the persecution.
Later on, as I watched the Falun Gong special programme, I saw the words on my shirt glitter with a shining golden light.
