On May 12th, 2007, a group of practitioners in Ankara successfully initiated the first Falun Gong Experience Sharing Conference in the local Cultural Centre.
Seven veteran and new practitioners shared their experiences of cultivation for periods of from nine to two years, or just several months. The participants included TV workers, kindergarten school teachers, businessmen, students, government employees, medical workers and housewives. The director of the Cultural Centre and his secretary general came forward to express their congratulations and to wish our Fa-conference success.
A practitioner named Samara who obtained Falun Gong only several months ago said, “When I thought about the persecutions of Falun Gong inflicted by the Chinese Communist regime, I felt terribly sad. Falun gong is really a priceless treasure. That I comprehended Falun Gong is not accidental. I accessed the Falun Gong website by email. I finished Zhuan Falun [the main text of Falun Dafa] after reading it once through and began to learn the exercises immediately.”
“I enjoyed reading from childhood. I have read a great number of books. Every book gave me some revelation and elevated me a little. However, Falun Gong let me reach the summit of knowledge. After studying my view of life becomes clearer and my interpersonal relationships improved. I found Falun Gong could explain anything in the world. I usually introduce Falun Gong to my friends and wish all the people in the world could learn the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. Falun Gong is the most supreme. In a short several months, I also experienced the process of eliminating karma as Zhuan Falun [the main text of Falun Dafa] said, but it was amazing to get through the process easily.”Samara said.
Another practitioner said, “I believe in Falun Gong very much. I have recognised Falun Gong since the first day I encountered it. I treasure the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. I respect true Falun Gong practitioners. A practitioner celebrated Master’s birthday by baking a delicate birthday cake from a rare and special Turkish rice in honour of Master’s mercy.
The conference proceeded peacefully from beginning to end, and practitioners shared their understanding with each other and exchanged their personal experiences. An elderly man who obtained Falun Gong only two weeks previously said, “After learning the exercises several days ago, my stomach ache disappeared. This is my first time without a stomach ache for several days. I made up my mind to practise Falun Gong. I believe all that was said here today.”
