(Minghui.org) Practitioners in Nagpur in Central India recently introduced Falun Dafa to several schools. They approach school officials and give them a brief presentation, and then are invited to introduce Falun Dafa to the students.

After the presentations, principals recommended the practice to other schools. In some schools, students gave fliers to their teachers, who then contacted practitioners to schedule a free teaching session. Practitioners were moved when they saw that so many schools were waiting for Falun Dafa.

Inner Peace

Practitioners heard that tribal students who live in the government hostel were keen to learn the Falun Dafa exercises after they received the informational fliers. So practitioners visited the hostel on November 25 and demonstrated the exercises to 67 boys and girls.

The students picked up the exercises very quickly and were able to calmly meditate. One of the girls said that she had never experienced this kind of inner peace. “It also give me a feeling of confidence and hope,” she said.

Former Student Welcomed

One practitioner graduated from the Newajabai Hitkarini Boys School, 150 km away from Nagpur, 40 years ago. When he decided to visit his alma mater, principal Mr. Gaidhane was happy to welcome the former student and immediately approved the idea of introducing Falun Dafa to the students the next day. The practitioner was surprised with the speed of the sequence of events and how everything fell into place as if it was all prearranged.

Practitioners went to the school on November 26. Most of the 1447 students were present along with some teachers. Impressed by how calm and quiet the students were while they did the exercises, Principal Mr. Gaidhane invited the practitioners to come back and give more demonstrations in the future.

The principal was also glad that Falun Dafa was taught free of charge. He was very happy to receive several copies of Falun Gong and Zhuan Falun. He suggested that practitioners contact the girls’ school next door and teach them the exercises.

Amazing Experience

What happened on the afternoon of November 25 at the Newajabai Hitkarini Girls School was astonishing. Almost all of the 1300-plus students were present. They stood in straight lines like soldiers and fell in line with military precision. A teacher who took photos said it was unbelievable to see the students behave so well for such a large event. “They stood in straight lines no matter which angle you look at them from,” she said.

Another teacher who took photos was also amazed by the students’ self-discipline during the line-up. Another teacher said the name Falun Dafa was special, and he felt the school was immersed in sacred energy while the students did the exercises.

Dr. Banpurkar, principal of the girls school, said she could feel the energy. She was also pleased to see how the students calmed down and were disciplined. She said this helped her understand the power of Falun Dafa. She took the practitioners’ fliers and said she would give them to students so that they could give them to their parents.

Looking Forward to Dafa Books

On Saturday December 3 practitioners from Nagpur were invited by the Shri Radhe High School to introduce Falun Dafa and demonstrate the exercises to 260 students. Headmaster Mr. Trayambak Raut was fascinated by the exercise movements since he previously practiced yoga and a Buddhist meditation.

Mr. Raut asked many questions, and was happy to learn that Falun Gong and Zhuan Falun were translated into Hindi.

Improving Mind and Body

Later that day practitioners from Nagpur also visited Bharati High School after the principal invited them to introduce the Falun Dafa exercises to 170 students. The principal, Dr. Rajesh Rewatkar, said he’s been looking for ways to improve the students’ physical and mental health.

Although he was unable to participate in the events due to other commitments, Dr. Rewatkar was extremely grateful for practitioners’ contributions. He was very interested in learning the excises and hopes they will hold another session.
