Local Falun Gong practitioners collaborated with the city government for a two-day event highlighting traditional Chinese culture called "Celebrating Spring" at the Auckland Botanic Gardens. A variety of activities were held, including an art exhibit, exercise demonstration and various musical performances. "It's the most grand event I've ever seen in the Botanic Gardens in recent years," said one of the garden's staff members.
Many Chinese spectators were proud and surprised to see Falun Gong in the parade. “This is something you cannot see in China,” said a Chinese gentleman very familiar with the persecution of this ancient self-improvement practice in China.
Greek Falun Gong practitioners held activities in Patra and Corinth near the Mediterranean Sea to introduce this ancient meditation practice from China. Many people were drawn to the beautiful music and strong energy field that accompanied the Falun Gong exercises. "The wonderful feeling is beyond description,” said one participant.
The exercise demonstration, something not seen every day in Jerusalem, caused great interest among the passersby, and it seemed that the peaceful energy made everyone forget the burning sun.
Local people had the opportunity to learn about Falun Gong and sign a petition calling for an end to the 18-year-long persecution in China.
Practitioners from neighboring Latvia took the opportunity to setup a booth at this year’s festival in Vilnius to introduce the peaceful meditative practice of Falun Gong to the people of Lithuania.
