May 13, 2013 was the 14th World Falun Dafa Day, the 21st anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the world, and also the 62nd birthday of Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong. Falun Gong practitioners in Gothenburg, Sweden gathered on May 13 to celebrate the special occasion at Slottsskogen, the largest natural park in Gothenburg.

During the event, practitioners did the Falun Gong exercises as a group, introduced Falun Dafa and talked about the persecution in China to passersby. Practitioners who have benefited from Dafa also shared their stories.
Cui Lan, who has practised Falun Gong for just over a year, shared her miraculous experience excitedly. She recalled, "Not long after I started to practise Falun Gong, my son rang me to ask me to look after his son for 3 hours, as he needed to attend a meeting. Because my grandson had been ill for a week and the doctor could not find any problem with him, my grandson had to stay at home and could not attend kindergarten. When my grandson was with me, he suddenly fell to the ground unconscious. I was in a panic, and did not think about calling an ambulance. I just cried loudly: 'Master, save my grandson, Master save him! Save him!' I just shouted like this for a short while, then my little grandson started to breathe, and slowly regained consciousness.” When she talked about this experience, she was full of emotion. Then she said firmly, "Since then, I have been determined to practise Falun Gong. Even if I cannot go back to China [because of the persecution], I'll still practise Falun Gong."
Peter is a Swedish practitioner who has been practising Falun Gong since 1995 when Master Li held a conference in Sweden. It has been 18 years since then. Though he could not attend the full conference, he saw Master on the last day of the conference. Since that time, Peter has been practising cultivation.
Peter shared that for him, a veteran practitioner, the key was to follow the principle of forbearance diligently. Whether at home or in the workplace, this is always the case. He said that there are many things that need our forbearance. If we can follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, problems will be easier to deal with.
Peter said with deep reflection: "Due to being busy with work recently, it is natural to come across some character tests. When we encounter problems and contradictions, it is very important to search inwards, rather than blaming others. When my own problems are solved, other problems will be solved accordingly. This is my cultivation experience over so many years. My wife is a Dafa practitioner as well, and we always help each other in our cultivation. There are many other practitioners in Gothenburg, and we always come together to share when problems occur. I think that this is a good cultivation environment."
