Tang Dynasty drummers perform

Practitioners demonstrated the exercises and presented Chinese dance and drum performances by the “Tang Dynasty drummers.” They set up display boards to expose the persecution of Falun Dafa in China and distributed flyers. Practitioners also set up a table to make paper lotus flowers with children and their parents. They explained how the lotus flower, a beautiful flower that emerges from muddy waters, is a symbol for the practitioners in China who have endured persecution while maintaining compassionate hearts.

Ms. Svetlana, a retired history teacher, was impressed by the Falun Dafa exercises and said she would like to learn. She said that she saw practitioners in several countries, but didn’t know there was a group in Moldova. She took a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and said that the crimes against good people in China are monstrous.

A woman was walking in the park and saw someone with a lotus flower and asked where she could get one and was directed to the World Falun Dafa Day gathering. She managed to get the last available flower and tears of joy came to her eyes. She said that she felt a special energy and a radiating light in the area.
