Falun Dafa was first imparted to Taiwan in April of 1995. Today, more than 10 years have passed, and there are now over 1,000 places where Falun Gong practitioners get together to practise the set of five exercises in Taiwan. Practitioners there range from university professors to doctors, lawyers, engineers, public servants, police, farmers, businessmen, students, and housewives. Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) is highly recognised by local Taiwan governments and societies.

In May of 1997, Mr. Lin Fusheng, a former tailor who had retired six years before, started learning Falun Gong. Not long after practising, ailments such as body pain and stiffness in his back disappeared. His complexion became rosy and he kicked his cigarette addiction to the curb. Even more remarkably black hair even started to grow back on his bald head. Over 40 years of taking medication had finally ended.

Half a year later, the founder of Falun Gong, Master Li Hongzhi visited Taiwan in November of 1997 and gave lectures at Taipei City Sanxing Elementary School and Taizhong City Wufeng Farm. The two lectures lasted for ten hours and around 1,000 Taiwanese Falun Gong practitioners were fortunate enough to attend. The deepest impression Mr. Lin had was that Master did not take any breaks during the five to six hour lecture. Some practitioners asked Master to take a break, but Master only waved his hands and said that he didnt need any rest.

Lin Fusheng recalled, "It was very hot on the day Master lectured. Many practitioners did not bring any water with them. We were very thirsty. After the five hour plus lecture, everyone hurried to find water during the break."

After listening to Master's lecture, Mr. Lin thought about why Master did not rest and continued lecturing. He later enlightened that it was due to Master's enormous compassion for everyone to listen to more of the principles taught in Falun Gong. In order to let the sentient beings listen to the Buddha Law, Master was not willing to take a break of even one minute.

Mr. Lin personally felt Master's dignity and compassion. He recalled, "I remember Master saying that in every lecture he gave that he needed to send out a large amount of energy. I indeed felt the preciousness and solemnity. At the lecture hall, I indeed felt the energy sent out by Master. I was originally sitting in the first row, but later moved to the third row as I was embarrassed to sit at the front. However, I was still very close to the stage."

Now, thinking back, Mr. Lin feels immersed in this overwhelming happiness. The memory of that precious experience always warms his heart.
