親愛的王先生:

我感謝你在本週花時間告知我關於在佛利蒙市和灣區的法輪功或法輪大法的活動之事宜。這兒似乎對你們活動的興趣大增,你們在短短的幾年裏就得到了重要的發展。

通過柔和的動作和冥想煉習來改善人的精神和身體的想法並不新穎,但在我們這個充滿壓力的現代社會中運用這些技術,這個想法卻是新穎的。我們對得到成功和財富的追求過強,往往我們得到卻是由於這種單方面用心過度的懲罰,諸如疾病、心臟問題、潰瘍,等等。法輪大法的實踐則可以使我們更集中在智慧和啟迪方面,而不是那些短期目的上。

在我們的城市或許有25%的居民是中國人或者是中國族裔。由於這種人口分布所帶來的大面積興趣,法輪大法對我們的城市來說是重要的。

我希望你們本週的活動得到極大成功,並鼓勵更多的佛利蒙市和灣區的居民參與你們的活動。在我看來,法輪大法的實踐在對個人的壓力緩解和總的精神和身體健康狀況方面的益處只可能使我們的社會更好。寄予你和你的伙伴們最好的願望。

真誠地,

(簽字)
格斯.莫力臣
市長

GUS MORRISION, MAYOR
CITY OF FREMONT
OFFICE OF THE MAYOR
October 17, 2000

Dear Mr. Wang:

I appreciate you taking the time to inform me of Falun Gong and the Falun Dafa activities being observed this week in Fremont and the Bay Area. It seems as if there is a great surge in interest in your activities here and that your growth has been significant in only a few short years.

The idea of improving the mind and the body through gentle exercise and the meditation is not new, but the use of these techniques in our modern, stress filled society is new to us. Too often our quest after success and wealth overpowers us and we pay the penalty for single-mindedness, penalties such as disease, heart problems, ulcers, and more. Falun Dafa practices could make us focus more on wisdom and enlightenment than on more short term goals.

In our city, perhaps 25% of our residents are Chinese or of Chinese origin. Falun Dafa is important to our city because of the interest of such a large segment of our population.

I wish you great success with your programs this week and encourage more residents of Fremont, and the Bay Area, to participate with you. It seems to me that the benefit to the individual of stress relief and overall mental and physical health from the practice of Falun Dafa can only make our community better. Best wishes to you and your associates.

Sincerely,

(Signature)
Gus Morrison
Mayor
