Falun Gong in India's Silicon Valley

Falun Gong in India's Silicon Valley

Bangalore is the third largest city in India, with a population of about 6.5 million. After India's independence in 1947, Bangalore, a hub city in mid-southern India, gradually became a center of heavy industry, including aerospace research. In the past decade or so, Bangalore has attracted the attention and support of high-tech firms from around the world. It has become India's information technology center. Engineers in Bangalore account for one-third of all engineers in India. A booming town with over 10,000 companies, Bangalore is known as India's Silicon Valley. It is one of the fastest growing cities in Asia.

On May 13, 2009, a reporter from the Indian Express, a renowned media in India, made a special trip to Bangalore, which also has the highest concentration of Falun Gong practitioners, to interview practitioners. That day was World Falun Dafa Day, marking the seventeenth anniversary of Falun Gong's spread around the world. The reporter took pictures of outdoor group exercises joined by local Falun Gong practitioners.

An Ancient Civilization Blessed by Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance

India, where Sakyamuni spread the Buddha law, is known as the Country of Buddha. Indians are a down-to-earth, honest, and kind people, and it's easy for Indians to accept Falun Dafa. The India Falun Dafa Association was registered in Mumbai in September 2004 and has gained recognition by the Indian government. Since then, India, the second most populous country on earth, has been blessed by Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance. People spread Falun Dafa by word of mouth and newcomers continue to join the practice.

First Fa Conference in India held in Bangalore on December 26, 2009

As early as March 2003, the book Falun Gong was published in the Indian language. Falun Gong practice sites were set up in many Indian cities, including Mumbai, New Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and New Delhi. On December 26, 2009, the first Fa Conference in India was held in Bangalore, and practitioners from various cities in India attended. Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, sent greetings to the conference, encouraging practitioners to “study the Fa well and abundantly--and do so frequently--become true cultivators of Dafa.”

Teachers and Students in Over 80 Schools Practice Falun Gong in Physical Education Classes

Falun Gong is practiced in over 80 schools in Bangalore. Students and teachers practice the Falun Gong exercises in physical education classes. Some schools have as many as over 3,000 practitioners. In Chintamani Town, not far from Bangalore, Verkey, principal of Jyothi School and a Catholic priest, spread the word to teachers and students after he experienced the miraculous healing effects of Falun Gong.

When asked whether they like Falun Gong, all the students raised their hands and replied loudly, “Yes, we do”

Teachers and students at Jyothi School found out that they physically benefited from doing Falun Gong exercises. The school made special arrangements to designate two classrooms for students to study Falun Gong, which set a precedence in India. Principal Verkey used almost his entire savings to purchase several acres of land near the school for building a facility so that practitioners can study the Fa and do the exercises. In India, where medical resources are in short supply, Falun Gong, a practice that is completely free, is no doubt a heaven-sent gift.

School Principals: Falun Gong Benefits Teachers and Students Mentally and Physically

In late November 2007, the National School Association of India celebrated its 50th anniversary. Principals of ranking private schools from all over India attended the celebration conference. Two school principals shared their experiences in promoting Falun Gong in their schools.

Principal Verkey's account of how Falun Gong became popular in his school was well received. He explained how he was experiencing health problems, and how he was amazed at the improvements after he started practicing Falun Gong. Naturally he told teachers and students about Falun Gong. After they started practicing, many students who were hard to educate made significant changes. Not only did they stop making trouble, but their grades improved as well. The uniqueness and effectiveness of Falun Gong is something he had never before seen. He was more than happy to recommend this to other principals, teachers, and students.

Chapter One

a pilgrimage
south on california one
leather & chrome, baby
a full tank
the shore pines
listen to the throaty pipes
of your lament
but they refuse
to take your confession,
leaving only salt air
to absolve your sins.

Chapter Two

down in LA
i find myself sitting
at the back of the church,
next to sam,
at the funeral
for our friend pat.

the last i knew of sam,
he was living out of his car,
not that those were bad years,
but it was awhile back
is what i am saying.

Chapter Three

i make it through
all the testimonials okay,
and suffer through the sermon
by the cheerful lady pastor
who assures us all
that god has called pat home
and he is in a better place,
although i don’t know how
that works for pat’s wife
or his son,
who’s kinda missing his dad and all.

towards the end,
they have a slide show of pat’s life,
and at that point i have to get up
and take a walk
for fear of completely
losing my composure.
i pretty much have a good view of pat’s life,
at least the parts that i enjoy remembering.
so i go outside
and start walking
on the sidewalk around the church.
the shadows are long
and the harsh midday sun is gone,
replaced by a reassuring golden light.
a light breeze comes up
to keep me company.

Chapter Four

soon the service is over
and people are coming
out of the church
and there’s sam
carrying a large flower arrangement
back to the car
to take to the reception at the house.

life is strange:
the last time i saw sam,
some 20 years ago,
he was carrying a large flower arrangement
out of the church after pat and kelly’s wedding.
i can’t cipher this out in my head,
so i back-burner it for later
anyway, let’s see, oh yeah,
well, we all go back to the house
and there are lots of people
who pat befriended
in one way or another over the years,
but i don't remember this part so good.

soon, it comes time for me to shove off.
i seek out sam and give him a hug.
“i live in up in malibu,” he says to me
“you ought to stop by the house
if you’re gonna be riding back up the coast.”
he gives me a card
with his number and i head out.

Chapter Five

so the next day, i call sam.

“things got interesting after you left,” he says to me.

“what do you mean?” i ask.

“i’ll explain when you get here,” he says.

later that afternoon,
i ride up to malibu
& up a side street into a canyon.
the last house at the end of the road
belongs to sam.
he answers the door
and i immediately notice
he’s got a big black eye.

“jesus! what happened to you?”

“as i said,
things got interesting after you left.”

“i thought us buddhists
were strictly non-violent.”

“well, there are certain exceptions,” says sam.
“i got into a fist fight
with a guy that had been staying
with pat and kelly for nearly a year.
i thought he was a mooch,
so i thought i’d ask him
when he was thinking about leaving.
apparently, he took offense.”

“boy,” i says, “i’m going to switch
to your Zen teacher. i’m liking this.
i always thought that,
except occasional self-immolation
during times of unjust wars,
we weren’t supposed to hurt other beings.”

“as i said,” says sam,
“there are certain exceptions.”

“i don’t have to lift a cauldron of boiling oil
with my bare arms
or nothing like that when i leave, do i?”

“no, i just have a regular door here.”

Chapter Six

and so,
sam and i spend the afternoon
drinking moosehead beer out on his deck.
zack the zen dog is running around the yard.
later we are joined by howie,
another old friend from the past,
and a chilean guy named aldo.
the sun drops down
behind the behind the canyon walls
and we look out towards a fiery sky
and share stories about pat,
some familiar, some not,
most of which cannot be repeated
in polite company.
anyways, later we get the drums out
and we get some pretty good riffs going.
and the sun is coming up
when sam walks me out to my bike.

“sam,” i says,
“i think this is the beginning
of a beautiful friendship.”
