Danya said the first time she started to read the book Zhuan Falun, she realized just how wonderful it was, and she could see light and energy emanating from it. After she'd finished reading it the first time, the problem she'd had with her cervical vertebra, which had bothered her for two and a half years, was gone. She wanted to tell everyone, “Hurry! Come and look! It's a wonderful way to change your life and bring you great health!”

Yuliya from Moscow was involved in spiritual pursuits from the time she was young. She read many books, visited monasteries, and practiced Yoga in her search for the meaning of life. She finally found Falun Dafa and realized it was exactly what she had been looking for. After experiencing tribulations in her life and work, she said the only way to break through them was to be strong in her faith in Dafa and to persevere when it came to doing the three things. Her experience was proof of the power of Falun Dafa to those who knew her.

Mikhail, an attorney, said, “From the bottom of my heart I am deeply grateful to Master, but the only way to truly show my gratitude is to cultivate myself diligently and save more sentient beings!”

The conference provided a great opportunity for practitioners to exchange their cultivation experiences. Some of them were moved to tears when talking about their gratitude to Master. Practitioners encouraged each other to stay diligent in their cultivation and to offer salvation to more sentient beings.
