India: Falun Dafa Presentations Well-Received in Bangalore Schools
(Minghui.org) Based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the meditation system of Falun Dafa has benefited people in over 100 countries, both physically and spiritually.
Over the past several years, many schools in India have invited practitioners of Falun Dafa to give presentations for their teachers and students. This report features some recent presentations at schools in the city of Bangalore, the nation's third most populous city.
Vengal Government School
The principal of Vengal Government School invited practitioners to introduce Falun Dafa to staff and students. On August 29, 2019, some 400 students gathered on the school square where they learned the first set of exercises. The practitioners were invited to return and teach the students the rest of the exercises.
Practitioners also taught the school's 17 teachers the first and second sets of the exercises. One teacher said, “It feels so calm and peaceful.” She pointed out that usually when visitors come to the school, students are noisy and restless. But that day the students were quiet and well behaved. “I noticed the practitioners are always smiling and have lots of energy,” remarked another teacher. “We'd like to get Falun Dafa books and read them too.”
Stella Maris High School
After learning about Falun Dafa during the Bangalore Independence Day Flower Show in mid-August, several teachers at the Stella Maris High School were impressed by the meditation and its principles. They invited practitioners to come and demonstrate the exercises on September 3.
Practitioners met with members of the Eco Club, around 70 girls, and explained what cultivation is and how to practice. They then demonstrated the first and fifth set of exercises, while the students did the movements with them. “I've never seen these students so peaceful and happy,” said one teacher.
