2019, which marked 20 years since the start of the persecution, saw the arrest of large groups of practitioners as the authorities sought to prevent them from engaging in public demonstrations or launching other grassroots efforts to raise awareness about the persecution. Arrests also spiked around the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party's founding.
Falun Dafa practitioners are often seen at the popular tourist destinations in Taiwan demonstrating the exercises and raising awareness of the persecution in China. “You have a difficult job because you're trying to change the thinking of Chinese people who have been brainwashed by the communist government for so long,” said a supportive tour guide.
Several Australians share how they encountered Falun Dafa and its main book, Zhuan Falun. Some reported amazing recoveries from health problems after taking up the spiritual discipline, while others found answers to profound questions about life. "I will certainly keep reading Zhuan Falun for the rest of my life," one practitioner said.
Zhuan Falun, the book containing the main teachings of Falun Dafa, was first published in China 25 years ago. A German edition was made available in 1998, and many people in German-speaking regions have benefited from it. German-speaking practitioners share their stories in the hopes of inspiring more people and helping others experience positive transformations.
