OSU Professor Improves Work, Family and Health with Falun Gong

Ohio State economics professor Lucia Dunn discusses her experiences practicing Falun Gong and her efforts to raise awareness about atrocities and human rights abuses taking place in China.


My name is Lucia Dunn. I’m a professor of economics at Ohio State University in Colombus, Ohio. I’ve been a Falun Dafa practitioner for almost 15 years—it’ll be 15 years this fall.

The main benefit I got from becoming a Falun Dafa practitioner was that it changed my mind, it helped me get a clearer vision of what life was all about—what the purpose of life was. I started living my life by Truthfulness, Compassion & Forbearance…and it just changed everything; it made everything in my family happier, there was more harmony in my family—they all noticed that I had become easier to live with… I think my students benefited, I think my research benefited, and I became more caring, I think, of my students—more determined to do a good job by them. I think I just got more productive all around because I—my mind is more at peace…

Forced organ harvesting became known 2006, and that’s where a lot of my effort has gone in the ensuing years. We have collected thousands of signatures on the Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting petition that goes to the United Nations Human Rights Commission every year; and we pass out our flyers, we visit our congresspeople, our representatives, about it—there’s a huge effort going on there—we have to bring that to light so that people know…

I’d like to say: Master Li, thank you, thank you, thank you so much…and happy birthday, Master Li. Falun Dafa hao! (Falun Dafa is good!)
