One Sunday morning at the Titiwangsa practice site in Kuala Lumpur, a young man came to learn the truth of Falun Dafa. Afterwards, he said that the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) where he studies would hold a carnival-like campus activity. He invited us to participate so as to enrich their programs and provide more information about Falun Gong.

Thus, practitioners held group practice, truth clarification, and a signature drive on the campus of UTM from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on September 5th, 6th and 9th. Although that was during work hours, many practitioners actively took part in the activity. Practitioners felt that this was a precious chance to clarify the truth to students at this university. Some students immediately learned the exercises on the spot. Most students signed the petition to call for an end to the persecution as soon as they learned about Falun Gong.

On the last afternoon, the university held a "sports for all" activity. Falun Gong was selected to replace the gymnastic exercises that were picked in previous years. At 3pm, a ten-people drum troupe entered the sports ground and marched to the lawn. The sound of drums resounded throughout the campus. Then the "sports for all" activities began. Practitioners dressed in golden exercise suits led nearly 100 students to practise the Falun Gong exercises. After the exercise demonstration, some students did not feel that they had enough and requested more. The university agreed to their request and practitioners helped the students to divide into several small groups to continue teaching them . The atmosphere was very peaceful.

After the activity, the university cordially invited practitioners to take part in the closing ceremony. An edited film reviewing the activities was featured. People surprisingly found that practitioners' waist drum troupe and a young practitioner demonstrating Falun Gong's fifth exercise, the meditation exercise appeared on the screen. A round of warm applause sounded. Afterwards, we were invited to have dinner with the university's honoured guests. One gentleman asked about the meaning of the exercise demonstration and the waist drum performance and this allowed practitioners to explain Falun Gong in depth to those at the table. The people listened carefully and were interested in Dafa. They also expressed their sympathy towards persecuted practitioners. Later it was discovered that the gentleman who asked the question was a dean of UTM.
