The people of Mumbai treasure Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance even more after the recent terrorist attack. Renowned artist Kahini ArteMerchant attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition. She said, "The artists are highly skilled. The message conveyed by the artwork is critical because faith is the foundation of our lives. Nothing is needed more than Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."

People from all circles of life visited the exhibition. Upon hearing about the persecution of Falun Gong, student leader Shoaib Qureshi said, "I see from the artworks that Falun Gong practitioners are unfairly treated. I am very saddened, especially with the live organ harvesting. Falun Dafa is great!"

Shetty, a chief inspector at the Central Railway, said the theme of the exhibition has very deep meaning. "Forbearance is important in our lives, but very few can follow forbearance. If people want to enjoy life, they will need forbearance," he said.

"I am shocked! I have never heard of the persecution," art student Aditi Vengurlekar said. "The China I see in these artwork is completely different from what I imagined. I love the paintings very much! The artists successfully expressed what they wanted to say."

One woman said after seeing the paintings, "I have tried Yoga. Now I have finally found what I have been looking for!"
