Russia: Introducing Falun Gong at a Youth Event and an Art Exhibition
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in Russia participated in a community event in St. Petersburg to introduce the practice to young people at the beginning of June 2019. They also held The Art of Zhen Shan Ren International Exhibition in the city of Tomsk in Siberia from May 10, 2019, to June 2, 2019.
Introducing Falun Gong to Youths
Falun Gong practitioners were invited to participate in the “Pure Heart” youth event in St. Petersburg, where they taught people to fold origami lotus flowers. They also demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises and talked to people about the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of the peaceful practice. Some practitioners performed dances in Chinese costumes.
An attendee named Nastya said she felt a special energy field from the practitioners, and many other attendees thanked the practitioners for telling them about Falun Gong and the persecution. The local government issued an appreciation note to practitioners and said they hoped the practitioners would participate in future events.
The Art of Zhen Shan Ren Exhibition in the City of Tomsk
The Art of Zhen Shan Ren International Exhibition was held at the Kartashov Gallery in the city of Tomsk, Siberia, from May 10 to June 2, 2019. The paintings introduced what Falun Dafa is and portrayed the Chinese communist regime's brutal persecution.
Some visitors left messages in the guest book:
“I heard about this exhibition from my mother. She said she wept when she visited the exhibition. We came with a one-and-a-half-year-old child. He was calm and always smiling. Falun Dafa and the energy of those paintings calm people and make them want to sit next to the characters to understand what they know.”
“The most inspiring part of the exhibition is improving oneself – cultivation. I now want to take some time to think many things over. I'm very thankful to you all, you have emphasized the most important things.”
