(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners from the Bulgarian cities of Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas, Varna, and Stara Zagora celebrated Falun Dafa’s 30th anniversary and the 23rd World Falun Dafa Day. Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong), introduced this unique system for self-cultivation for the first time in 1992.
For their World Falun Dafa Day celebrations, Bulgarian practitioners demonstrated and taught the five exercises, informed people about the persecution of Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party that has gone on for 23 years, and taught the children how to make origami lotus flowers.
In the capital city of Sofia on May 14, Falun Dafa practitioners in South Park demonstrated the exercises and taught people who were interested in the park. For the little ones, a workshop on making paper lotus flowers was organized, and children of different ages learned about the symbolism of the lotus flower. The lotus flower is a symbol of a person’s inner purity—its roots are in the mud, but the petals always appear on the surface of the water, bright and pure.
