Early Shen Yun Pieces: The Dafa Practitioner's Magical Encounter (2012 Production)
Early Shen Yun Pieces
This is a story about the courage of a man standing up for his faith. Set in today’s China, it tells of a kindhearted young man who practices the spiritual discipline called Falun Dafa. He does meditation exercises and aspires to live by the principles of Truth, Compassion, and Forbearance. But like millions of others in China today, he is persecuted by the communist state.

The man responds to the persecution by displaying a banner proclaiming, “Falun Dafa is Good” outside his home. For this action, he is chased down and assaulted by the regime’s police. The man flees to a secluded mountain, where he begins to meditate.

Suddenly the rocks above him shift, and fairies descend in a gesture of encouragement. The police soon arrive and again try to take down the Falun Dafa adherent, only to meet with divine retribution.

This story is a continuation of an ancient Chinese tradition of fairy tales about mystical beings deep in the mountains. But are they just fairy tales?
