TAIPEI, Taiwan—Mr. Cheng is a Taiwanese currently working in China. He owns an original equipment manufacturing (OEM) factory for stereos in China, employing about 500 staff. He attended Shen Yun Performing Arts’ performance in Taipei on the evening of Feb. 23 and enjoyed it very much. Mr. Cheng travels to Taiwan each year to watch Shen Yun and is a loyal fan.
Mr. Cheng used to suffer from severe gout. The first time he watched Shen Yun’s performance four years ago, he felt a powerful energy that purified his mind. The gout miraculously disappeared afterward! With such a magical experience, he finds himself at Shen Yun’s performances every year. “Each time after I watched Shen Yun, I slept especially well that night. I suffered from gout four years ago. After I watched Shen Yun, the energy that purified my mind had a positive effect on my health too. From then on, I didn’t suffer from gout anymore.”
“It was a kind of energy field that brings positive effect on people. That is why I come back every year no matter how busy I am. I am flying to China tomorrow.”
Many Taiwanese businessmen hesitate to watch programs that contain information on Falun Gong because of the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong in China, and they fear retaliation from the Chinese regime. “Most people don’t talk about [the persecution of Falun Gong] in public in China. When we chat in private, the Chinese people basically think that Falun Gong is just a qigong practice and that the persecution is a mistake in the government policy. However, people change and time changes too. The story that unfolds in the dance An Unexpected Encounter is bound to happen more and more often.”
Mr. Cheng believes that the feeling he experiences after watching Shen Yun is all positive. “Each time I watch the show, the energy settles down my emotions. I feel tranquil. I am inspired to return to my true self, the most true, kind, and beautiful nature.”
Mr. Cheng encourages other Taiwanese businessmen who work in China to watch Shen Yun every year. “The stories can rectify the degenerating values in society nowadays and promote traditional Chinese culture. Business owners reflect on themselves too. They can purify their souls through watching Shen Yun.”
