Why Is This Spectacular Boat So Special and Meaningful? (Video)

Let’s count down, light up the Fa boat, and wish for a bright and glorious future together!

“Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.” Wow! It’s just so amazing!

Handmade by over 6,000 people, the world’s largest and tallest “Fa boat” attracted hundreds of people who wanted to take pictures and come on board during 2015 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Taichung.

It is 82 feet long, 26 feet wide, 59 feet high, and consists of six floors with three flags fluttering in the wind, saying “Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance.”

Visitors were surprised by the magnificent scene. Some commented:

  • “The moment when the Fa boat was lit up, I was stunned by its beauty. It’s touching, inspiring, and looks very bright and beautiful.”
  • “It’s spectacular and solemn.”

Many groups participated in the festival, and the Fa boat was presented by the Falun Dafa Association. A spokesperson named Huang Jiaren said: ” Noah built an ark during the Great Flood, allowing good people to come on board so that they could survive in this world. Today we made this Fa boat. We also hope that it can encourage people to be good and improve society’s morality,” according to NTDTV.

The lights were turned on by Taichung’s City Mayor Lin Chia-lung. And after he posted the pictures on Facebook, many bloggers praised the spectacle, and said they would like to witness its beauty.

The number of people waiting to board keeps going up but don’t worry, it’s not too late yet! The organizers said there will be a Fa boat lighting ceremony once an hour from 6 to 9 p.m. everyday til March 15. Hope you can make it!
