Art that Awakens the Soul
The paintings offer a view into a world of inner beauty, strength and wonder that is inspired by the meditation practice, Falun Gong (Falun Dafa).
The works also reveal a persecution happening in China. The Falun Dafa practitioners depicted show their inner strength as they meet injustice with courage, whilst upholding the universal values of: Truth, Compassion, Tolerance.
The emblem of Falun Dafa is called the “Falun,” a Chinese term that translates loosely as “Wheel of Law.” It is composed of two primary elements: yin-yang symbols, which are Taoist in nature; and srivatsa (swastika), which are Buddhist. The swastika as presented in the Falun is the symbol of the Buddha.
Hosted by the Falun Dafa Association of Victoria Inc.
