(Clearwisdom.net) October 6, 2002 was early spring in Melbourne, Australia. Though the chilly wind of winter didn't' want to give up, the morning sunshine was already warm and pleasant. Practitioners from South Australia together with Melbourne practitioners practiced the exercises and sent forth righteous thoughts before they entered the conference hall for the 2002 Melbourne Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference.

The Fa-conference went on under a serene environment. After seven hours of experience sharing, practitioners put on "The Path to Return" concert. Though the performers were not professional and some of them had never performed on stage before, they used their hearts to perform and won many cheers and applauses from the audience. Some members of the audience were moved to tears. City Council Members, VIPs of local organizations, and many practitioners' family members and friends watched the performances as well.

In the evening, practitioners had dinner together and continued to share experiences and understandings.

The Fa-conference encouraged those practitioners who had not stepped forward to safeguard the Fa, reminded practitioners of the importance of being diligent in cultivation, and helped point areas that need improvement. Practitioners as one body came to deeper understandings of the importance of studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the truth.
