It has become more of a norm in recent years that thousands of adherents of Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, get together at the iconic Liberty Square in front of the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taipei, Taiwan, to participate in the Image and Chinese Character Formation around this time of the year.

Please watch the following video of the 2019  Falun Dafa image and Chinese character formation produced by New Tang Dynasty TV Asia Pacific:

With the theme of “Wide spreading of Falun Dafa around the world,” over 6,500 practitioners of this spiritual meditation practice formed a magnificent image of a giant world map and seven traditional Chinese characters, in a formation that was 101 meters long and 88 meters wide, at the Liberty Square on November 16.

Above the world map are the three Chinese characters of Zhēn, Shàn, and Rěn (Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance), which are the fundamental principles of this spiritual discipline, while beneath the map are the four Chinese characters of Dà Fǎ Hóng Cuán (meaning wide spreading of Dafa). Additionally, there are 10 rays of yellow light on the top of the image.

Additionally, dozens of display boards erected in two lines on the ground between Liberty Square and the arched gates of the Memorial Hall also help visitors understand the magnificence of Falun Dafa and the truth behind the ongoing atrocious persecution against this peaceful spiritual discipline in China since 1999.
