Falun Dafa at the University of Sydney's Multicultural Day (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On October 6, 2004, the Sydney University Falun Dafa Club was invited to take part in the University's Multicultural Day. Practitioners performed a demonstration of the Falun Dafa exercises and shared the story of Falun Dafa with the students.

Explaining the facts about Falun Dafa
An eye-catching yellow banner with the Chinese words, "Falun Dafa is Good" attracted students to the food tables, where materials about Falun Dafa and its being persecuted in China were on display. While some practitioners catered food, such as Chinese dumplings and delicious egg-tarts, others handed out fliers to students.
As students lined up to get food, each was offered a flier to read and told kindly, "Falun Dafa is an ancient meditation practice and it is being persecuted in China right now." Some students expressed their interest to learn the exercises while others expressed their sympathy toward the practitioners being persecuted.
Two Chinese girls who approached the table saw the bright banner. They read, "Falun Dafa hao" ("Falun Dafa is Good") out loud and smiled nervously. They happily accepted booklets explaining the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
A freelance news reporter from Poland also approached the practitioners. After listening to the practitioners describe the true story of Falun Dafa, she said, "This is amazing, I must find out more about it!"
Three Chinese Dafa practitioners later performed a demonstration of the five sets of exercises while a Westerner explained the principles of Falun Gong. As the music and Teacher Li Hongzhi's instructions began, the whole area was filled with serenity.
The event was a success, and a good opportunity for Sydney University students to learn the truth about Falun Dafa.
