Columbia University's Falun Dafa Club held a photo exhibition to raise awareness about the meditation to students and faculty. Several visitors brought up questions they had about the Chinese regime's slanderous claims against the practice, giving the club members a chance to explain the real story behind the persecution in China.
The parade brought the beauty of Falun Dafa's Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to area residents, both Chinese and Westerners, as well as tourists from around the world. Practitioners also raised awareness of the 18-year persecution of this ancient spiritual practice by the Chinese Communist Party. The parade was especially noteworthy for people recently from China, where Falun Gong is brutally suppressed.
The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra presented its final performance of the season at the Strathmore Music Center in North Bethesda to three encores and standing ovations. Audience members described the performance as representing the best of East and West, noting that it was filled with beauty, had healing powers, and that the music brought listeners closer to their spiritual selves.
The Falun Gong group demonstrates the exercises and performs in the parade for the largest annual street festival in Sydney.
“I now know why people come to this world. I learned that people who commit bad deeds will suffer retribution and that one will lose virtue if one mistreats others. I started following the Falun Dafa principles and I am a different person.”
A woman with an immune system problem lost her hair. After spending a lot of money on various treatments that did not work, she discovered Falun Dafa and her hair, and her hope, grew back.
