Ruslan and his family

Ruslan, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Kyrgyzstan, took part in the celebrations. He is very grateful to be able to practice Falun Dafa.

“Falun Dafa has given me answers to my questions in family relations, work, etc,” he said. “I read many religious books, but didn’t find the answers to the meaning of life. The first time I learned about Falun Dafa, I realized it was what I had been looking for. I gained spiritual peace, learned the meaning of life, and how to walk the path of self-cultivation. I realized this is the truth.”
