Falun Dafa Day Celebration 2012

#Toronto City Hall had another celebration in Nathan Phillips Square as people celebrated the 20th anniversary  of the Falun Dafa on Saturday May 5, 2012.

From the City's event website "Celebrate Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance through beautiful cultural performances, exercises and a grand parade. Falun Dafa is an ancient cultivation practice of improving mind and body composed of gentle exercises and meditation. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public and the 61st birthday of its founder Master Li Hongzhi.

Although persecuted in China, practitioners have remained steadfast in the belief that goodness flourishes in the adversity, like plum blossoms blooming in the cold snow. On Saturday, join us in celebrating the beauty of Falun Dafa, Chinese culture and the many benefits, including health, that it has brought to over 100 million people around the world."
After music and speeches the march through the downtown city streets, passing along Yonge Street and then west on Dundas.
