The Health and Longevity Exhibition, held at the Kiev Sports Palace from September 14 to 16, 2023, presented various ways to improve the body. Falun Dafa practitioners took part in the event to introduce the spiritual discipline and demonstrate the meditative exercises.
Practitioners also displayed Falun Dafa books and informational materials. While talking with attendees, they also told them about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s persecution of practitioners in China.
The exhibition drew around a thousand visitors. Some said they were already familiar with Falun Dafa because they saw practitioners in parks and on Khreshchatyk Street holding activities to introduce Falun Dafa. Others said they had joined instructional webinars and learned the exercises there. People asked about group practice locations and left their contact information so that they could join the classes. Some visitors asked questions about the persecution and why it was happening.
Chinese Man Quits the CCP
A Chinese man came to the booth and talked with a practitioner. The practitioner told him about Falun Dafa and how its values (Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance) can benefit society.
The man said, “We know Dafa is very good, and Master Li is a great person.”
The practitioner asked the man if he had withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. The man said, “I understand everything. [The CCP] is very bad.” He asked the practitioner to help him quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations using a pseudonym.
The practitioner also showed the man Master Li’s recent article, “How Humankind Came To Be.” After he read the article, he said, “I really understand what’s happening now [in the world]! I thank you!”
Ukrainians Voice Their Support
Two Ukrainian women talked with a practitioner and listened intently as the practitioner explained Falun Dafa and its values of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. They stayed at the booth and learned more about the practice.
“What a good thing. Today, I came across such a good practice thanks to you,” one of them told the practitioner.
The two women left after taking flyers about the practice and lotus flower keepsakes with Falun Dafa’s values written on them.
