Every year before the summer holidays, the nursery where my son is at would invite all the children from the nursery and the day-care clinic as well as their parents to attend a celebration at the nursery. Apart from a few activities usually organised by the teachers, there would also be performances by invited groups. For parents, this was a good opportunity to communicate and chat with each other.

This summer the nursery decided to try something new. Two months before the celebration activities they held a meeting with a few parents of foreign nationalities to discuss their plans. They hoped that we could put on a few shows which represent our own cultures. I decided to bring the beauty of Falun Gong to these lovely children and their parents. After I briefly introduced the five Falun Gong exercises to the head of the nursery she immediately expressed her hope that I could put on such a great performance for the children and their parents. When we came to the time of the celebration my son and his group of friends would also be wearing their name tags in both Chinese and German.

Because this activity was mostly aimed at the children and their parents, I decided to hand out lucky charms and paper lotus flowers, telling them that these will bring them fortune and a good future. Every time I finished doing a round of Falun Gong exercises demonstration I could always see children and their parents standing aside waiting to receive lotus flowers and lucky charms.

The parents and teachers did not show a lack of interest in Qigong exercises either. After watching the exercise demonstrations they came over and asked me where they could learn Falun Gong and I gave them details of exercise classes and other materials to clarify the facts. Moreover I told them about the greatness of Falun Gong and the on-going persecution of Falun Gong in Mainland China. Some parents started learning the exercises on the spot. One parent said to me: Falun Gong’s five exercises really catch everyone’s eye. Another nursery teacher hoped that I could teach the exercises to the teachers so they could teach the children. She believed that this would greatly benefit the children both physically and spiritually.

The celebration activities lasting for only a short while and the afternoon came to an end. As I watched these people leave with satisfaction after finally hearing about Falun Gong I felt very glad for them from the bottom of my heart.
