(Clearwisdom.net May 19, 2003) On May 13th 2003, Vienna, the capital city of Austria, saw its biggest torrential rain and hail storm in over 10 years. This terrible weather didn't stop Dafa practitioners' activities; they celebrated World Falun Dafa Day with righteous thoughts, telling many people about the practice and the truth behind the vicious persecution happening in China.

Dafa practitioners from all over Vienna came to the city centre to attend this activity. Due to the storm, certain plans had to be changed. However, practitioners frequently sent forth righteous thoughts and explained the facts about Falun Gong to the people of Vienna. The practitioners' peacefulness and glowing smiles made those who were worrying about the cold weather much more happy. There are many Chinese people living in Vienna. Some thought that Dafa practitioners were acting for "political reasons", and didn't believe that they would voluntarily stand on the streets to clarify the truth. When they saw Dafa practitioners still talking to people from their hearts during this terrible storm, they changed their notions and approached the practitioners asking to learn the facts about Falun Gong. When the activities finished, all of the Dafa materials prepared for this activity had been distributed to passers-by.
