An Abstract:  

FALUN DAFA is a ‘cultivation practice’. The Presentation will cover three important aspects of this practice:

First, there will be an explanation of what ‘cultivation practice’ means.

Second, since cultivation practice is for purification and refinement of the mind and body, this practice results in amazing health benefits, as well as improvement of moral character.

Third, the gross injustices done against Falun Dafa practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will be discussed. By banning the practice and treating peace-loving citizens as criminals, the Chinese Communist Party has committed grave human rights violations against Falun Dafa practitioners. It is time the world know about this crime against humanity.

The Speaker:  

Born in Germany, Christiane Teich studied fine arts. Her love for travel and social work took her away from Germany, to various countries in South America and Africa. She helped to set up schools and children’s homes in Africa, and was also deeply involved in human rights and humanitarian work in refugee camps during the 1985 famine in Ethopia. She is spiritually inclined and has learnt various meditation and yoga practices. Along with her social work in Brazil and other countries in South America and Africa, she also taught yoga and meditation. Since 1991, she has been living in Sarnath, India (near Varanasi), and for 12 years she worked and taught meditation in a Buddhist Meditation Centre in Ladakh. She visits Ladakh during the summer months, and it was on one such visit that she met practitioners of Falun Dafa and learnt the exercises. She finally found her calling in the practice of Falun Dafa, and has been actively sharing this knowledge and introducing the practice in many schools in Varanasi and Ladakh. She has also worked to inform and create awareness on Falun Dafa and the on-going persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China, through film screenings and painting exhibitions. Owing to her expertise on the issue Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, has invited her on several occasions to give presentations on Falun Dafa and the human rights issues related to Falun Dafa practitioners in China.
