(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners went to Hotel Samrat Residency in Bangalore, India, on February 6, 2023, to introduce the spiritual practice to a group of upper-class women.
Bindal Shah, a member of the group, had seen practitioners doing the exercises at a practice site and invited them to introduce Falun Dafa to the group.
Forty women participated in the event. The practitioners demonstrated the exercises, explained the teachings, and corrected exercise movements when necessary.
One woman said that, when she heard about the Falun Dafa introductory session, she thought it would be boring, and she and her friend had planned to sit in the last row. But just as the session started, she felt that this was what she had been waiting for all her life. She said she wanted to take up the practice right away.
Two other participants bought Falun Gong books, while others expressed interest in going to a practice site to learn more. One woman said that, after practicing the exercises, she felt serene and her body felt very light.
A lady who had missed the first session said that some of her friends who had attended it told her that it was great and that she had missed something brilliant. She felt that her friends were really telling the truth and that the practice was wonderful beyond her imagination.
Several women requested another session about Falun Gong at their next group event.
Celebrating Women’s Day with the Group
The women invited practitioners to introduce Falun Dafa on Women’s Day at the Century Club in Bangalore on March 8, 2023. About 100 women had gathered to celebrate Women’s Day. Practitioners gave a powerpoint presentation, demonstrated the exercises, and invited the ladies to do the exercises with them.
Practitioners explained that Falun Dafa is an ancient practice of mind and body and is practiced freely in more than 100 countries, except in China, where it is persecuted.
Some of the participants expressed interest in presenting the practice to other members at different venues. Many women noted down the practice site times so they could participate.
Background: What Is Falun Dafa and Why Is the CCP Persecuting It?
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China, in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in more than 100 countries and regions worldwide.
Millions of people who have embraced the teachings, which are based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and have learned the five exercises have experienced improved health and well-being.
Jiang Zemin, former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), perceived the spiritual discipline’s growing popularity as a threat to the CCP’s atheistic ideology, and on July 20, 1999, he issued an order to eradicate the practice.
Under Jiang’s personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organisation with the power to override the police and judicial systems and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Dafa.
Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 24 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. Countless practitioners have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.
There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply China’s organ transplant industry.
