Every year this time, many tourists from Russia and other countries around the world would come to a farm village in southern Krasnoyarskiy Kray to participate in the carnival celebrations.
During the three day celebrations, Falun Gong practitioners held various activities to help tourists from afar know the benefits of practising Falun Gong. They demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises and taught those who had an interest to fold paper lotus flowers, which symbolise a self-cultivator's asirations to purity and high moral standards.
