(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners hosted the Art of Zhen, Shan, Ren [Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance] International Exhibition at the University of Cincinnati, at the end of April 2022. The exhibition features over 40 paintings by Falun Dafa practitioners. The art exhibition was hosted by practitioners at the University of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati city hall back in 2005. More art pieces were added to the collection this year. 

Many university students, faculty members, and families of those who attended graduates’ ceremony viewed the art pieces. Some said they felt a spiritual elevation within Falun Dafa practitioners after enduring the persecution. Many also praised practitioners for their steadfast faith, high morals and compassion in adhering to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance despite the persecution. Some expressed gratitude for practitioners raising awareness about Falun Dafa. 

Students and faculty members of the university express their gratitude for Falun Dafa practitioners raising awareness about Falun Dafa. 

Guestbook Comments

Some comments in the guestbook read:

“Thank you for hosting the art exhibition. You’ve told me things that I had not known that they are happening in China. I will try my best to understand Falun Dafa, and the difficulties Falun Dafa practitioners are facing.”

“Thank you for bringing to us great energy emanating from the art works. Every art piece has its delicate detail. I can immerse myself in an art piece for the whole day! It is wonderful!”

“I am heartbroken and in tears upon learning about the persecution. I had no idea something like this was happening in China. These art pieces are beautiful, but they make me upset at the same time. I will keep those persecuted practitioners in my prayers.”

“These art pieces are extraordinarily beautiful. I enjoy the art piece that portrayed the heavens and hell.”

“Every art piece emits a very strong energy and it is very beautiful. I am touched by each art piece.”

“I understood the truth about Falun Dafa, and found it to be very meaningful.”

Many also signed the petition calling for an end to the persecution, and inquired about Falun Dafa. Some began to read Falun Dafa books, such as Falun Gong and Zhuan Falun, while others stated that they found the spirit of faith in Falun Dafa. They said that they wanted to participate in the local group practice site.
