The 13th of May was the 14th anniversary of the introduction of Falun Gong to the public and was also World Falun Dafa Day. On this day, Falun Gong practitioners from Gothenburg, Varberg, Lerum, Trollhattan and Uddevalla celebrated in beautiful Slottskogen.

The principles of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance, have purified practitioners' bodies and minds, elevating them both spiritually and mentally. Falun Dafa has showed people a way to cultivate their mind and return to their true nature. Since being introduced in 1992, Falun Gong has spread all over China and also brought a wonderful future to people in over eighty countries surmounting different races, nationality, skin colour, language and cultural context differences.

In the spring of 1995, Master Li Hongzhi went to Gothenburg and taught Falun Dafa to the Swedish people. Nowadays, Falun Dafa is deeply rooted in Sweden.

Filled with gratitude to Master and compassion for people, Falun Gong practitioners celebrated World Falun Dafa Day by displaying some pictures from the “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance International Art Exhibition”. They also demonstrated and taught the five sets of Falun Gong exercises. Poster boards were displayed to the public and a table was set for those who would like to learn how to fold paper lotus flowers. The practitioners also told people about the benefits they have received from practising Falun Gong. There were many activities and every part was telling the people the truth of Falun Gong, which formed a kind energy field.

Beret, who attended Master Li’s lectures in 1995, was touched by the day's events and said, ‘We are so lucky. When getting in touch with the practitioners in other countries, they might not know much about Sweden. However, they all know Gothenburg because it was the place that Master came to spread the Fa. My understanding of Qigong was superficial before 1995. Master’s lectures let me know about how to be a human being and the laws of the universe. I will do my best to spread the teachings of Falun Dafa.’

The yearly Gothenburg Marathon was taking place on the same day. The start was close to Slottskogen. Participants, spectators and other visitors were attracted from everywhere. A lot of people stopped to view the paintings carefully, learn how to fold paper lotus flowers, read the picture boards and the leaflets and listen to practitioners’ experiences and stories.

Falun Gong practitioners and the kind public were sharing the joyfulness and the happiness that Falun Gong brings to life.
