Falun Dafa Melbourne

Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is a high-level cultivation system from China.

Falun Dafa is a self-cultivation practice that has brought better health and inner peace to millions around the world. We call it a cultivation practice: "cultivation" refers to the improvement of one's heart and mind through the study of universal principles based on Truthfulness, Benevolence, and Forbearance; "practice" means doing exercises and meditation to energise the body.

It is based on the universal quality of Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truth-Compassion-Forbearance) and has ancient historical roots. Cultivation, or body-mind-spirit development, is an important aspect of Oriental culture and many different systems have existed over the centuries.

"Cultivation" is a more accurate word to describe the improvement and upliftment of body, mind and spirit, since the process requires effort on the part of the practitioner. One literally "cultivates" their qualities like a garden, planting seeds of goodness and not letting that goodness be damaged by circumstances or events.

The Chinese word for cultivation is "Xulian" and it was used to describe those ancient practices, which had long, religious sounding names. After the Cultural Revolution however, people realized that to use the word "Xulian" would be uncomfortable for authorities. They formulated a new word, "Qigong" from two words that were more acceptable: "Qi" (pronounced "chee") meaning universal life energy and "Gong" meaning cultivation energy, which is a higher and more refined substance than Qi.

Melbourne: "Great Wall of Courage" Touches People
Eighth Anniversary of April 25th Appeal
27-04-2007

April 25th, 2007 was a special day for the Australian people, because it was the 92nd "Australia and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) Day." It is observed annually in memory of Australian and New Zealand soldiers who were injured and killed during the two world wars.

This day was also the eighth anniversary for the ten thousand Falun Gong practitioners in mainland China who gathered at the Appeals Bureau near Zhongnanhai, headquarters of the central government. Practitioners in Melbourne held a series of activities to demonstrate the goodness and peacefulness of Falun Gong to tourists and citizens who took part in the commemorative activities on ANZAC Day.

People were shocked at the brutal persecution that Falun Gong practitioners have been suffering in China. Falun Gong practitioners' great deeds of countering the persecution over the past eight years of hardships and tribulations, have touched the world's people.
