Australia: Falun Dafa at the University of Sydney's Multicultural Day

On October 6th, 2004, the Sydney University Falun Dafa Club was invited to take part in the University's Multicultural Day. Practitioners performed a demonstration of the Falun Dafa exercises and shared the story of Falun Dafa with the students.

An eye-catching yellow banner with the Chinese words, "Falun Dafa is Good" attracted students to the food tables, where materials about Falun Dafa and its persecution in China were on display. While some practitioners catered food, such as Chinese dumplings and delicious egg tarts, others handed out fliers to students.

As students lined up to get food, each was offered a flier to read and told kindly, "Falun Dafa is an ancient meditation practise and it is being persecuted in China right now." Some students expressed their interest to learn the exercises while others expressed their sympathy toward the practitioners being persecuted.

Two Chinese girls who approached the table saw the bright banner. They read, "Falun Dafa Hao" ("Falun Dafa is Good") out loud and smiled nervously. They happily accepted booklets explaining the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution.

A freelance news reporter from Poland also approached the practitioners. After listening to the practitioners describe the true story of Falun Dafa, she said, "This is amazing, I must find out more about it!"

Three Chinese Falun Dafa practitioners later demonstrated the five sets of exercises while a western practitioner explained the principles of Falun Gong. As the music and Teacher Li Hongzhi's instructions began, the whole area was filled with serenity.

The event was a success, and a good opportunity for Sydney University students to learn the truth about Falun Dafa.
