During the introduction, practitioners made use of a projector and films introducing the Falun Gong principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance in detail, citing some concrete examples of the significant changes experienced by Falun Gong to practitioners. The films explained, using scientific perspectives, the benefits and the physical and mental aspects of Falun Gong. All of the teachers who took part in the introduction were convinced by the benefits of Falun Gong, and many praised the practice while listening.

When the introduction finished, participants didn't want to leave until very late. Many said that the introduction gave them a pleasant feeling, and made them relaxed and comfortable.

One of the teachers said, "I received a copy of a Falun Gong leaflet, but at the time I thought it was only a new idea of some kind, so I didn't read it carefully. Today I realize what Falun Gong is. Falun Gong is such a wonderful practice. I will recommend it to my relatives, friends and students and help as many people I can to feel its goodness."

After the introduction forum concluded, the teachers made an appointment to study the Falun Gong exercises on June 26.

On the 26th, people arrived early at the National Education Bureau of Mersin Municipality. Some also brought their family members and friends with them. After learning the five sets of exercises, they exchanged their feelings and experiences from learning the exercises, and veteran practitioners answered questions one by one.
