Eight practitioners talked about how they have applied the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and how it changed their behavior and thoughts in their daily lives. One artist practitioner realized that the artwork we produce is just like us. To produce good art, she had to first be a good person. That included getting rid of jealousy, a competitive mentality, as well as the attachments to fame and material gain.
Even though their case was returned to the police three times due to insufficient evidence, six Falun Gong practitioners were charged and stood trial for their belief in Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Two practitioners were physically abused during interrogation and their lawyers were harassed by the authorities before and during the trial. Sadly, due process violation is the norm for Falun Gong practitioners under persecution in China.
Falun Gong was introduced at events in Pennsylvania and Vermont in the United States, Vienna in Austria, and Pune in India. Practitioners demonstrated the exercises, passed out informational materials, and talked to people about the persecution of the practice in China, collecting many signatures to end the persecution along the way.
A Falun Gong practitioner was force-fed after he went on a hunger strike to protest his latest arrest. He became critically ill but was still made to stand trial. His death one week after being tried capped years of suffering.
