Austria: "Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance" International Art Exhibition in Salzburg

Practitioners in Salzburg Austria held an art exhibition during the 10th and 12th of November 2006. Nearly 30,000 people attended who were not just locals but also visitors from Europe.

By providing a commentary, the exhibition organisers helped viewers to understand the persecution in China more deeply

Regardless of where the viewers were from, they were all attracted by our outstanding stand. By seeing these artists’ work and listening to the traditional Chinese music, many people stood there for long time and came to Falun Gong practitioners to ask the background information regarding these works.

A middle=aged gentleman was curious about the painting of a girl, who was holding a lotus with both her hands and meditating quietly. When he was told that the lotus represents those Falun Gong practitioners in mainland China who remain peaceful, sedate and noble even though they are being persecuted, his eyes filled with tears.

A mother and daughter came to the stand asking for Chinese Falun Gong material, as they wanted to give it to their Chinese friends. They were shocked by this persecution. They thought that the human rights situation in China had improved just as the economic boom has grown, however, they could never have thought that such a cruel persecution is still happening.

One lady was attracted by a painting which illustrated a peaceful appeal outside a Chinese Embassy. She said that the meditating practitioners were a sharp contrast to the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) Embassy. She could feel practitioners’ compassion and peacefulness.

A gallery owner from Germany invited practitioners to hold this "Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance" International Art Exhibition in his gallery.

After visiting this art exhibition, many people were really indignant about this persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the CCP. Quite a number of people asked for material about Falun Gong and enquiring about the exercises class.

This "Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance" International Art Exhibition will be held in other states in Austria.
