Falun Gong Practitioners Interviewed on State Radio Network of Indonesia
(Clearwisdom.net) On June 13, 2010, government-run Radio Republic Indonesia (RRI) invited four Falun Gong practitioners for a live interview and call-in.
The president of the Indonesia Falun Dafa Association described the history of Falun Gong's development and its current situation. Falun Gong, (a.k.a. Falun Dafa) was first taught in 1992 in China by Mr. Li Hongzhi. Within just a few years, tens of millions of people had taken up the practice. They followed the core principles of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance in their daily lives and gained both mental and physical health. The practice has been spread to over 100 countries and areas around the world.
The host had three other practitioners talk about their personal experiences with the practice.
Several listeners sent in questions by text messages. The questions were mostly about where to find Falun Dafa's website and the volunteers who teach the exercises. One listener asked whether the practice was similar to martial arts. The practitioners answered the questions in detail based on their understandings.
Falun Gong has been taught in Indonesia since 1996. In Bali alone there are over 1000 practitioners. The Falun Dafa Association is planning to hold nine-day seminars around the country to show Mr. Li Hongzhi's video lectures and teach the exercises.
