Australia: Group Character Formation at Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney
(Minghui.org) The day before the 2017 Australian Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference, Dafa practitioners gathered at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney for a large-scale character formation on September 9.
Adjacent to the Sydney Opera House, this garden is the oldest scientific institution in Australia and one of the most visited attractions in Sydney.
The character formation started at 9 a.m., with practitioners arriving wearing yellow jackets and light-colored trousers. They sat on the ground in carefully arranged locations, forming four large Chinese characters meaning “Fa Rectifies Heaven and Earth.”
Denise and Brian, mother and son, said they were happy to attended the event. They both experienced improved physical, mental, and spiritual health as a result of the practice. Denise said, “Falun Dafa is very special to us and we are very grateful to Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa.”
Brian agreed, and added that he felt great energy while sitting together with his fellow practitioners. “Every practitioner looks so pure and so happy. It is really a good thing to be here with everyone.”
Sydney practitioner Abhishek said that he was especially excited to see more and more people taking up the practice. He said he learned the purpose of life and much more from Falun Dafa.
He said, “I am so fortunate to practice Falun Dafa. I think this is why I came to this world. I will cherish this opportunity, follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and walk each step well.”
