(Clearwisdom.net) From March 17 to 19, Falun Gong practitioners in Jakarta and nearby islands held a three-day Fa Study camp.

Group practice during the Fa Study Camp

During the 3-day camp, the practitioners studied "Touring North America to Teach the Fa", all 2005 articles and conference lectures, and Essentials for Further Advancement.

As a group, they discussed specific topics such as "How to strengthen one's righteous thoughts" and "How to do the three things well. Regarding righteous thoughts, a practitioner said: "Cultivation is most serious. I know that I have many bad thoughts, and I try very hard to eliminate them one after another once they emerge." A new practitioner said that after he started to practice Falun Gong, all his health problems, including those that he thought were not treatable, just disappeared. Another practitioner said that once, a customer had overpaid him. After realizing this, he returned the money to the customer who didn't even know what had happened.

Children from the local Minghui School also participated in the Fa Study Camp. They attended Fa study three times a day (morning, afternoon and evening) and practiced the Falun Gong exercises. When asked the benefits of practicing Falun Gong, they said: Health, better performance in school, and indifference to personal interest as they learned to position others' interest first.

When the Fa Study Camp concluded on March 19, everyone felt that the event was very helpful. The practitioners said that they would share their experiences at the Camp with fellow practitioners who were unable to attend.
