May 20, 2016 | Falun Gong practitioners from Queensland, Australia held a celebration of the 17th World Falun Dafa Day at Brisbane Square on May 14, 2016. Practitioners handed out Falun Gong informational materials, talked to people about Falun Gong, and exposed and raised awareness of the persecution in China.
Many citizens stopped and signed the petition to express their support for Falun Gong’s peaceful resistance. Some told practitioners that they had heard about the persecution and had already signed the petition.
Practitioners shared their experiences of how they have benefited from practicing Falun Gong.
Practitioner Vlad found out about Falun Gong five years ago, when he was searching for a spiritual path.
“I have benefited a lot, especially in regards to spiritual insights. I was looking for something righteous, and I wanted to learn higher principles. Through my wife, I found Falun Gong.”
“The Falun Gong book of teachings, Zhuan Falun, greatly opened my mind, and helped me enlighten to a new understanding of life and the universe, and answered all my questions. Everything around me suddenly became clear. I obtained a completely new perspective. By following the teachings of Falun Gong, I became clearer on the meaning of life, and gained more inner peace.”
