Recently Katya and Heinz, a couple from Australia whose marriage was strained, discovered the spiritual practice of Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong). Ever since, their lives turned around and they were brought back together again.
Katya said, “Falun Dafa changed my life completely. The teachings guide me to view things differently. I am able to think of others first and be considerate, and, on a daily basis, I can feel the positive changes. I gradually realized that I was also part of the problem when it came to my marriage. I might have hurt him or mistreated him in the past.”
“How could I hold him completely responsible for the failed relationship? No one is absolutely right or wrong; the only thing I can do is to change me, myself. I no longer insisted on my point of view, and I began paying more attention to others. My relationship with my husband improved.”
There are millions of such real life stories of people who have found peace and harmony in their lives, thanks to the practice of Falun Dafa. Since its introduction in China in May 13, 1992, this wonderful practice has brought about immense well-being to its practitioners for the past 25 years.
Having the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance at its core, this practice uplifts the moral character and leads to righteous behaviour of the practitioner.
While millions of Falun Dafa practitioners around the world celebrate the 25th anniversary on May 13, 2017, their joy is mingled with sorrow, thinking of their fellow practitioners in China languishing under severe persecution. The Falun Dafa practitioners in Mainland China have been suffering untold misery under the 17 year long relentless persecution.
Why is such an amazing practice which benefits people physically and mentally has been banned by the Chinese government? Why are innocent people arrested, tortured and even killed for their organs? It is hard to believe that such a peaceful and non-political practice could be perceived as a threat to the Communist regime. It is not just a violation of the Human Right of Freedom of Faith. Killing innocent people for organs is genocide, a crime against humanity.
I just signed a petition calling for an end to China’s persecution of Falun Dafa. I think it is important for all of us to take a stand on this issue, because the persecution of good people in any part of the world affects all of us in some way, wherever we are.
