On Wednesday 22 May, some forty senior sitizens from Karlstad came to visit the practitioners in Arvika. Earlier this spring they had asked if they could come and learn about Falun Gong. During the day they received an introduction to Falun Gong and a brief explanation of it’s historical background and it’s unique health effects.

We also talked about xinxing (this means heart-nature/mind-nature, or moral quality) and the meaning and importance of living in harmony with the characteristics of the universe: Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearence.

Of course they also had questions about the persecution, something that seemed to concern them a lot. One of them said, “I can understand why they are persecuted! They want to be good people, but since the regime is such an evil one, ones urge for truth and kindness can serve as a threat. When people start to think for themselves and don’t accept the evil, they can’t be easily manipulated, and that’s something very dangerous for a dictatorship.”

We ended the day with some of the gentle and harmonious exersices, something that suited the elderly people well. They were all so grateful that they all, one by one, thanked us personally before they left.
