(Clearwisdom.net) On January 7th and 8th, Austrian practitioners organized an experience sharing and Fa study meeting in one of Vienna's youth hostels.

On the first day, the practitioners read Master Li's latest lecture from a recent Falun Dafa conference in Manhattan. They then went on to share experiences and understandings from their recent efforts to raise awareness about the persecution of their fellow Falun Gong practitioners in China. The next day, many new practitioners attended the meeting. Everyone read from Falun Dafa's main text Zhuan Falun.

This meeting was very beneficial for all present in their effort to develop a better cultivation environment. The new practitioners had the opportunity to meet in smaller groups with veteran practitioners and ask questions about their cultivation. They also raised questions about the five-year persecution against Falun Gong by Jiang Zemin and the Chinese Communist Party. Everyone found the weekend both valuable and rewarding.
