UK: Falun Gong Practitioners Do the Exercises and Share Experiences in London (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On the morning on November 5, 2011, Falun Dafa practitioners from all over Europe gathered at Regent’s Park near the Chinese Embassy in London and did the five exercises.
After the exercise session, several practitioners shared their experience in the practice.
Murphy from Poland found Falun Gong on the Internet two years ago. After reading Zhuan Falun, he decided to practice. Soon his demeanor improved, and he became more physically fit. Before he practiced, Murphy smoked half a pack of cigarettes every day and was addicted to alcohol. He quit smoking and drinking a week after he picked up the practice.
Murphy said that he used to fight with others a lot before he practiced. He is now good-tempered and patient in a lot of regards. He followed the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and got rid of his bad habits gradually. Now he has a peaceful heart and clean thoughts. People who knew him from before said that he became a different person after the practice. His family was happy to see the changes in him and they are proud of him.
Diana from Spain and her mother Irene both practice Falun Dafa. After three years in the practice, Diana said that Falun Dafa enabled her to understand the meaning of life, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance has become an important part of her life. After she left home to go to college, she established a practice site in the university to teach the practice for free and to spread the beauty of Falun Dafa to more people.
Venga from India is a businessman and lives with his family in Spain. Two years ago, he learned Falun Dafa. Venga was thankful that Falun Dafa helped him quit drugs and alcohol abuse. He said that after he practiced Falun Dafa, he felt that everyone should follow the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He has a good temper now. Before, he was prone to fighting at the slightest provocation. Now he can think from the other party’s point of view and calm down when a conflict arises.
Ursula from Cologne said that she was a very stressed out person before she practiced Falun Dafa. She often worried over small things. After she started practicing Falun Dafa, she became relaxed and calm. She used to quarrel with her husband a lot, and has now learned how to be more considerate. Her family lives in harmony and her husband is very happy.
Ursula said that being a German, she knows all too well about how bad communism can be. She loves Chinese culture and hopes to tell the world that Falun Dafa teaches people to be kind and good. The practice helps people benefit both mentally and physically. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) slanders Falun Dafa and brutally persecutes the practitioners. The Chinese Communist regime even unlawfully harvests and sells the practitioners’ organs for profit. Ursula goes to Cologne Church (Kölner Dom) to tell people about the persecution of Falun Gong, especially to tourists from China.
