On August 26th 2007, the UK Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference was held in London. Practitioners from all parts of the country attended the meeting.
At the conference, which was decorated simply yet solemnly, Chinese and Western practitioners from different age groups and backgrounds who started cultivation in different periods and are involved with various projects shared their experiences on an array of topics, such as improving their character to resolve conflicts at home, at work or in society, clarifying the truth to stop the Chinese Communist Party‘s persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, cultivating in the period of Fa rectification, letting go of the attachment to comfort, finding and getting rid of fundamental attachments, keeping righteous thoughts throughout projects, etc.
Young practitioners talked about the characteristics of their cultivation at home and in life through each age group, while elderly practitioners spoke about their improvements through different forms of tribulation.
Some Chinese and Western practitioners touched upon overcoming reservation and attachment to comfort, utilising cultivated righteous thoughts and personal strength to take initiatives in clarifying the truth to friends and the media to promote Falun Gong and tell more people about this persecution. They emphasised the importance of group study of the Falun Gong teachings and sharing for the improvement of individuals and the group as a whole.
Two practitioners who suffered the CCP persecution in mainland China exposed the CCP’s atrocious evil nature through their own experiences. They stressed letting go of the Party culture and attachment to comfort to better expose the evil overseas in normal western society. Those who took part in the twenty four hour vigil at the Chinese Embassy and exposed the CCP crimes in Chinatown reported a steady increase of people who learned the truth through the past few years. They also shared their cultivation experiences in this process.
Several practitioners who participated in various projects described how to balance a multitude of projects, help newcomers, be compassionate, co-ordinate with righteous thoughts, and persevere in Fa study and sending righteous thoughts under pressure in the Fa rectification period. They highlighted the importance to tolerate and encourage each other to improve as one body so that more people can learn about Falun Gong and the truth about the persecution in order to help Master in Fa rectification.
Heartfelt words of self criticism were well received. Many shed tears and applauded enthusiastically. The atmosphere of the conference was solemn and peaceful. At five o’clock in the afternoon the Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference ended successfully.
