The annual conference took place in Baden, a suburb of Vienna, where both Western and Chinese practitioners talked about their experiences and lessons learned during their cultivation practice, including the importance of righteous thoughts, being compassionate, becoming selfless, and staying diligent.
Locals and tourists alike were impressed by the Falun Dafa parade in Frankfurt on Saturday, which was led by the Tian Guo Marching Band and followed by a procession that mourned practitioners who died as a result of the persecution. After the parade, practitioners in the city center demonstrated the exercises and collected signatures on petitions calling for an end to the persecution in China.
"I experienced fundamental changes in my mindset via an irresistible yet compassionate force. I was moved to tears. I knew that my life was no longer what it was before." A young man in Hungary shares his journey with Falun Dafa and how the practice has transformed his life in so many positive ways — from family relations to the workplace.
The free Falun Gong exercise classes have been a popular event at the Fremont Main Library. One participant noted, “I'm filled with energy after learning the exercises, which makes me relaxed and calm.”
A Falun Gong exercise class that has been held at the library for the past 10 years has attracted people from all walks of life. Many shared their experiences of what it has done for them.
An introductory session to teach the Falun Gong exercises was attended by 50 people, with some visiting from as far away as India, Vietnam as well as other countries. Many learned about the persecution of the practice in China for the first time.
