May 13, 2012 marked the 13th World Falun Dafa Day and the 20th anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public, as well as the 61st birthday of Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa. In order to express their gratitude to compassionate great Master and celebrate this magnificent occasion, practitioners in Turkey gathered in Istanbul's Bebek Park to display the wonderfulness of Falun Dafa's Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

On the spacious lawn in the centre of the park, practitioners in yellow T-shirts demonstrated the five sets of exercises, accompanied by peaceful exercise music.
A banner reading “Falun Dafa Is Good” hung high up in the air, and the peaceful exercise movements attracted the attention of many tourists. Many people stopped to watch for long periods of time. Some enthusiastically learned the practice on the spot.
