Many visitors came to the exhibition with two questions: Does the persecution of Falun Dafa continue in China to this day? Why does the communist regime persecute Falun Dafa?
“I met Master Li in heaven five years ago”
On the last day of the exhibition, a woman in her sixties told exhibition volunteers her own near death experience where Master Li Hongzhi brought her back to life.
It was during a craniotomy operation five years ago. While in a coma, she arrived at a heavenly place floating above the clouds where everything was glittering with golden light. The golden light was very bright, and she saw many beautiful flowers that don't exist in the human world.
She also saw many divine beings, similar to those in the painting “Fulfilling Vows,” and met Master Li Hongzhi, who looked the same as in painting “Turning the Great Law Wheel.”
Master Li unlocked her memories, allowing her to remember the mission of those divine beings. Master Li then sent her back to her body.
When she finally opened her eyes, she saw her family and friends surrounding her, calling her name, because they were worried that she would never wake up again.
The moment she received a flier to attend the Zhen, Shan, Ren International Exhibition, she immediately recognized that Master Li was the divine being who sent her back to her body.
Being a president of a company, she has focused on working hard to make money, and had never thought about the meaning of life. Even after the operation, she still had bad headaches and could no longer work.
The art exhibition allowed her start to thinking about the meaning of life and ignited her interest in Falun Dafa.
“Falun Dafa is the highest Buddha Law”
One man, who is a Buddhist, came to the exhibition and told a volunteer that he knew “Falun” was mentioned in ancient Buddhist scriptures, and that Falun Dafa was the highest Buddha Law.
He stayed at the exhibition for a long time, looking closely at every painting. He returned to the exhibition on the last day to see the images of Master again.
