Igor, a Czech Falun Dafa practitioner

Igor, from the Czech Republic, is a software engineer living in Vienna. He started cultivating Falun Dafa in 2016, and had previously tried out many different cultivation practices. Through the Falun Dafa sitting meditation he learned how to enter into tranquility. He also felt a large energy field surrounding him.

Igor found inner peace and was able to relinquish bad and negative energy after taking up cultivation. He has a calm and peaceful demeanor about himself. He used to strongly pursue comfort and success, but through reading Master’s lectures, he learned to let things happen naturally and be less attached.

Igor said that Master’s Dafa is priceless, and words cannot express his gratitude towards Master. “Happy Birthday Master! Thank you Master!” he exclaimed.

Young Practitioner: Growing Up in Dafa

Gerog, a young practitioner raising awareness about Falun Dafa

Gerog is almost 17 years old and has grown up in a family of cultivators. He started to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance at a very young age, and Dafa has been there for him every step of the way. He follows the Fa’s standards at school and gets along well with his classmates. Cultivating in Dafa has helped him lead a more focused life.

Mr. Wang from the Falun Dafa Association in Vienna said, “Master has led us in every step of cultivation and also purified our bodies. Dafa has spread to more than 100 countries and regions. With the ongoing pandemic, many people are deluded and searching for answers. When Falun Dafa practitioners clarify the truth, sentient beings are always listening carefully. The world needs Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance now more than ever.”

Falun Dafa practitioners wish great and benevolent Master a happy birthday.
