(Clearwisdom.net) From June 3 to 5, the 90th anniversary celebration of National Central University and the annual graduation ceremony were held on campus. For the very first time, the university held a Faculty and Staff Organization Expo during this special period. More than 20 groups participated in this expo. The Falun Gong Club was invited, and received wide praise during the expo.

The president of the university attended the opening ceremony. In a speech he said, "The activities of the various organizations on campus are very important because they can enhance friendship and improve work efficiency." Director Lin of human resources, the hosting unit, said: "Our faculty and staff members have 21 different organizations. This is the very first expo to showcase our campus organizations and we thank the support and guidance from the President. We also thank all the members of these organizations for their participation." Many university VIPs, professors, staff members, students and residents in the nearby community attended the ceremony, packing the expo site.

Besides poster presentations, several clubs, including the Falun Gong Club, presented exquisite performances. Newly formed and the youngest club at the university, the Falun Gong Club presented nine large posters, all rich in content. At the expo site, Director Lin commended the Falun Gong Club for their contribution to the university community.

The Falun Dafa Club prepared a brief introduction, with highlights of their activities. They gave an introduction to the history of Falun Dafa, talked about the worldwide support and the many proclamations received, the health benefits of Falun Dafa, and the truth of the persecution in China. They also gave a Falun Gong exercise demonstration. Practitioners stated that the goal of the club is to let people know about the brutal persecution against Falun Gong in China and to show the public that Falun Gong is a wonderful and profound cultivation method of mind and body.

Many people viewed the practitioners' exhibition with great interest

On the afternoon of June 4, the various campus organizations had a talent show on the stage, and the Falun Gong Club participated. Nearly 20 faculty and staff members and their family members went onto the stage to demonstrate the five sets of Falun Gong exercises. Five practitioners in the first row demonstrated the sitting meditation. The audience was really surprised to see that a little girl was among the five practitioners. The emcee then asked the audience to show their encouragement to the small girl with a round of warm applause. As soon as the exercise music started, the practitioners started to demonstrate the exercises. Many spectators in the audience imitated the exercises along with the practitioners. After the performance, the Falun Gong Club had a continuous flow of visitors. The practitioners hope that all of the visitors will have an opportunity to practice Falun Gong in the future.

During this expo, the Falun Gong Club displayed more than 100 paper lotus flower bookmarks. Together with colorful Falun Dafa bookmarks, they were distributed to visitors. Dr. Roettger, a scholar from Germany, participated in the performance. After the performance, he felt so good and all his worry before the performance disappeared. He felt that his performance was much better than he thought it would be. People at the site said that they could feel a strong energy field during the Falun Gong demonstration.

One staff member asked many questions. She said that she had practiced another Qigong exercise system for a long time and she recently was not feeling very well. She said that many people had recommended that she practice Falun Gong. After she heard practitioners' introduction to Falun Gong, she said that she would try it.

Another staff member said that one of her relatives is very weak and she thus took some Falun Gong information for the relative. "Because I have heard that Falun Gong is quite beneficial," she said, "I will mail my relative these materials." The woman came to the expo for two consecutive days, and practitioners also invited her to come to see practitioners' demonstration on the afternoon of June 4. She said that she would come for sure.

It is worth mentioning a special staff member, who had attended several Falun Gong workshops and read Zhuan Falun twice. She started to practice with other practitioners on campus every morning ever since the club invited a professor practitioner to give a presentation. This woman has now read Zhuan Falun three times. After the stage performance, she was so moved by the energy that Falun Dafa has brought to her. She then said that she would convince her husband to practice as well.
