(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in St. Petersburg, Russia once again participated in a health exhibition at the “Eurasia” Large-Scale Exhibition Centre, on April 7-11, 2021. The exhibition was well-attended despite restrictive measures due to the pandemic.

The screen in the central hall continuously broadcast a short video about how the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li, introduced the practice. Practitioners demonstrated the exercises each day of the exhibit and gave dance performances twice on the exhibition hall’s central stage. The dance they performed was called “Xun Nan,” or martyrdom. The dance was choreographed to commemorate those practitioners who lost their lives due to the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution. The practitioner who narrated told the audience that China’s ancient civilization is being persecuted by the CCP. Many people stopped to listen and warmly applauded the performance.

Practitioners always left a good impression with the exhibition organizers, and this time the organizers allowed practitioners to display an additional large display board to introduce Falun Dafa. They also allowed practitioners to demonstrate the exercises next to exhibition center’s entrance twice a day.

Many people were interested in learning more about Falun Dafa, and came to the display booth. When they were told that Falun Dafa can help people improve their morals and health, people eagerly accepted the materials. Some expressed interest in learning the exercises and asked where the practice sites were located.

Elizabeth, from St. Petersburg, said that the exercise demonstration and introductions deeply impressed her. She said she plans to go to the park and learn the exercises. Elizabeth said that she will definitely bring her friends as they all want to become better people and be healthier.

A group of undergraduates from a technological university, who are members of the “life energy” movement, stopped to watch the demonstrations, read the materials, and talk with the practitioners. Some of them immediately began doing the exercises along with practitioners.

Victor Alexandrovich, who coordinated a calligraphy and painting booth, kept coming back to watch practitioners as they demonstrated the exercises. He discussed the effects of positive energy on humans, and he wished the practitioners success from the bottom of his heart.
