Greetings, my revered fellow practitioners!

We are glad to welcome you to the 2nd Falun Dafa Experience-Sharing Conference in Russia.

Today we make no distinction between Western, Russian and Chinese practitioners. We are all Dafa particles in the Fa-rectification period. There is no difference between us. In our hearts, everything that has happened to our fellow practitioners in China has happened to each and every one of us.

We have undergone a fundamental change since the 1st Falun Dafa Experience-Sharing Conference. We all have done so many things in society to validate and safeguard Dafa. Every one of us has deeply felt our responsibility during this Fa-rectification period. We have changed completely in our understanding of the Fa and in our behavior.

Today's international Falun Dafa Experience-Sharing Conference is very important to us. Today Russia is a free country. Here we can practice the exercises and promote the Fa freely. But when the evil forces met with setbacks while promoting lies in Western countries, they turned instead to Russia and the ex-Soviet Union. We can all feel the pressure coming from the evil forces. Here the process of Fa-rectification and of the elimination of evil is going very quickly. Teacher places a very high requirement on us. Today's experience-sharing conference will move us forward greatly both in our cultivation and in the Fa-rectification process.

We would like to express from the depth of our hearts, "Thank you, Teacher!" We can always feel your help and encouragement. We would also like to thank all of our fellow practitioners from other countries for their help. We want to thank all of the Russian practitioners from other cities and the practitioners from the ex-Soviet Union. We thank all of the practitioners attending today's conference.

Thank you, Teacher!

Thank you, everyone!

Best wishes for the great success of the Fa-conference.

Russian Falun Dafa practitioners
