Attracted to the Beautiful Music

Mia and her friends passed by the Falun Gong booth. They were attracted by the beautiful music and peaceful exercises. They stopped and began to learn the exercise movements. Mia felt it was peaceful and serene. The practitioner told her that Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) teaches people to practice cultivation based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and improve their mind. She said that it was wonderful. She and her friends accepted the brochures the practitioners distributed.

They were shocked to hear that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) attacked such a good practice and that the practitioners in China were killed for their organs. They got angry when hearing about such atrocities, and said that it shouldn’t be allowed. They signed the petition and called for an end to the persecution.

It was ANZAC day (commemorating veterans) as well. Chris, a veteran, and his wife had participated in the veteran parade and passed by the Falun Gong booth. They were told that Falun Gong practitioners are persecuted in China, so they signed the petition to express their support for the practitioners. They said that everyone should have the right to freedom of belief. They praised the practitioners for their efforts to call for an end to the persecution. They expressed their thanks to the practitioners for telling them about such a good spiritual practice.

Mr Liu and his wife, from Shandong Province, China, stopped and read the display boards. Mr Liu said that they received Falun Gong pamphlets and CDs many years ago when they were in China, and already withdrew from the CCP and its youth organisations. He knew that Falun Gong is a very good practice and the April 25 Appeal was a peaceful appeal in Beijing. He gave a thumbs-up to the practitioners and told them that they were doing the right thing, encouraging them to keep it up.

Robert started practicing Falun Gong two weeks ago. He said that he was very happy to do the exercises and spread the messages to the practitioners. He felt the energy field was good.

He came across a Falun Gong practitioner when he walked on the street just across the road two weeks ago. The practitioner clarified the truth about Falun Gong to him and asked him to sign the petition. He thus learned Falun Gong. He went online to find out more about the practice after he came home. He was told that the Art of Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance) International Exhibition was going to be held in Adelaide. He went to see the exhibition on the first day and was given more information about Falun Gong and its exercise sites in Adelaide. He joined the exercise class the next day.

He became interested in spiritual cultivation five years ago. But he only read books and didn’t join any organization or attend the exercises. He was waiting for something. When he had the thought of joining some kind of practice, he then came across Falun Gong. He said Falun Gong was what he had been waiting for and he felt fortunate.

Robert, a new practitioner, shared his happiness in practicing Falun Gong.
