Falun Dafa Introductory Session Held in Tandur, India
An introductory session on Falun Dafa was held on August 21, 2011 in Tandur, India (125 km from Hyderabad). The exercises were demonstrated and taught, and a general overview and features of the practice were explained. The books Zhuan Falun and Falun Gong were presented to the local Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mr. Uday Kumar, who attended the event. He was pleased with the practice and remarked that everyone could benefit from it, as it helps people to control anger and give up jealousy.
Local Dafa practitioners took the initiative to clarify the facts to all those present. The next day, the event was reported in a number of leading newspapers. Practitioners were also inspired with how a non-practitioner took the initiative to invite the public prior to the session, through handing out pamphlets, publishing advertisements in a newspaper, and personal invitation.
