【明慧网二零一四年三月十九日】在经历了几个星期的阴雨之后,雅加达终于迎来了一个晴朗的假日,二零一四年三月十六日是星期天,市民们纷纷来到街上运动,骑单车、慢跑、或散步。在喧闹的大街上,人们注意到:有一群人正在炼着法轮功,他们就像沙漠中的一片绿洲,带来一股平静、祥和的力量。在雅加达,每个星期天的早上都是政府规定的塔木林大街的无车日,这是一项旨在改善雅加达的空气质量和提高居民健康的措施。

法轮功学员集体炼功的这股祥和的力量吸引着经过的路人,他们停下脚步,走近前来,或观看,或交谈。当他们了解到,这是一个没有组织,完全免费的运动后,纷纷加入,学起了法轮功的五套功法。

一位中年的印尼华人在一旁静静地看了一个多小时,后来他告诉法轮功学员,他真的被法轮大法所吸引,他要在网上查找更多的相关资料来了解。

两位来自苏门答腊北部城市棉兰的男士,他们正在雅加达做短暂的旅行,他们说以前曾在棉兰遇到法轮功,但是还没有尝试过。其中一个人说,法轮功所提倡的做好人,还有“忍”,都很重要。他们说,当回到棉兰以后,会去找当地的炼功点。

一个曾在香港工作过的先生说,他在香港见过法轮功,他知道,法轮功在中国受到共产邪党的迫害。他还说,中共政府迫害很多信仰团体,迫害那里的人民。在离开之前,他非常愉快地带走了法轮功的真相资料。

(Minghui.org) After a few weeks of rain, March 16, another Car-Free Sunday in Jakarta, Indonesia, was a bright sunny day. The main street was closed to cars, and pedestrians were encouraged to participate in more outdoor activities.

Falun Gong practitioners demonstrated the exercises, bringing the peacefulness and beauty of Falun Gong to the busy city.

Many people stopped by and spoke to the practitioners, and some of them followed along in doing the exercises.

An Indonesian-Chinese watched the exercises for an hour. He told the practitioners later that he really liked the peaceful movements, and that he would look for more Falun Gong information online.

Two gentlemen traveling from Sumatra had seen Falun Gong practitioners in their hometown. “Falun Gong teaches people to be truthful and compassionate,” one of them said, “The teaching of forbearance is very important, too.”

The other one indicated interest in learning the exercises, and said that he would look for his local exercise site upon returning home.

A local resident who had worked in Hong Kong commented: “I saw Falun Gong there, and I know that it’s being persecuted in China. People have no freedom of belief there.” He took a variety of Falun Gong materials before he left.
