Russia: First Falun Dafa Workshop Held in Chelyabinsk
(Minghui.org) The first Falun Dafa 9-day lecture workshop offered in Chelyabinsk was held on January 5-13, 2019, and attracted twenty people. They watched the lecture videos and learned the five sets of Falun Dafa exercises. The participants talked afterward about their experience and shared their thoughts about learning Falun Dafa.
Ms. Lyubov Vasilyevna decided to attend the workshop after she received a flyer about it. She said that the teachings of Falun Dafa completely turned her perspective on life around. “I've begun to reconsider my attitude towards life, the world and the people around me. I am learning to do things according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” she said.
Yuria, who learned about Falun Dafa through social media, said she felt her stress melt away and she felt very energetic after she did the exercises. She said that Master Li Hongzhi's teachings deeply moved her, “I was very focused when I watched the first lecture. I felt an immediate connection with the teachings, and what I heard resonated with me. Throughout the next few days I experienced what Master said:
‘Nevertheless, some people do not have a problem hearing me. Though they may sleep soundly, they hear everything without missing a single word. They will become energetic afterwards, and will not feel sleepy even if they go two days without sleep.’ Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun.
Yuria talked about her understandings after listening to the lectures. “I understood that becoming a higher level being is more than just changing the energy composition in the body by doing the exercises. It requires that one raise one's moral level. The process starts from within oneself. You are able to effortlessly overcome life's challenges when you follow the principles. The teaching is free of charge and everyone is welcome to learn. The exercise movements are easy to follow.”
Another workshop participant said that he used to practice other energy practices. He was impressed with Falun Dafa and noted, “The exercises are easy to learn and suitable for everyone. Master does not judge other practices. He teaches the most effective way of improving oneself, which is by following the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance.”
