Germany: Teaching the Exercises and Revealing the Truth in Bielefeld Fitness Centre

Because of recent bad weather, we felt that practising exercises in the park was not as effective as it is during the summer. So in order to let more people know about Dafa, we tried to contact personal fitness centres and inquire into the possibility of teaching the exercises there.

In the eyes of Germans, Qi-gong is like “Tai chi“ or “Yoga”, which relieves stress and may make people feel relaxed. When we arrived, the fitness coach was astonished but also very happy to hear that Falun Dafa exercises are always taught for free. He said many of their members would be interested and happily made appointments for us to teach the Falun Gong exercises at the Bielefeld Fitness Centre.

To help people learn more about Dafa, we ordered one copy of both “Zhuan Falun” and “Falun Gong” from the bookstore, and also took the exercise instructions, exercise music, Dafa music and two different Video-CDs for distribution.

“In every one of society’s professions a person can cultivate, and in each there are also people with predestined relationships waiting to obtain the Fa.” (Quote from Master Li Hongzhi’s article “Dafa is All-Encompassing” in Essentials for Further Advancement II) On the afternoon of March 1st, sixteen people came to the free Falun Dafa exercise class, including two coaches from the fitness centre. In the spacious and bright room, with the righteous and peaceful music of “Pudu “and “Ji Shi“, they learned how to practise the five sets of exercises.

We also used this chance to tell them about the current evil persecution that is happening in China. They looked bewildered upon hearing that mentioning the three words “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” can lead to beatings, torture and even murder in China.

The whole activity lasted for less than one and a half-hours. Although the activity itself was short, the effects it had were quite remarkable. People left after the free exercise teaching with a deep impression about the goodness of Dafa and we made an appointment for the same time next week.
