Falun Gong practitioners visited the 43rd High School in Batam Island, Indonesia to give a presentation on this ancient Chinese mind/body practice. The group was invited back to this school a second time, after giving a presentation there two years ago.
To a group of 800 students, practitioners talked about some of the spiritual principles taught in the book, Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong. They explained that the core principles of the practice are Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Afterward, they demonstrated and taught the exercise movements.
After the exercises, some faculty and staff members offered feedback. A teacher said, “The Falun Gong exercise music helped me focus and calm down. I felt the positive energy and my body feels refreshed now.” A security guard said, “The movements are gentle. The music is peaceful. I felt very relaxed.”
