Falun Dafa practitioners in Finland hosted a booth at Educa Helsinki, the largest teaching and education exhibition in the country on January 26 and 27. With over 300 vendors and about 18,000 visitors, this two-day event is a major training venue for teachers and principals.
A large number of spectators stopped at the Falun Dafa booth. Some learned the exercises and some planned to invite practitioners to give presentations in their schools.
Martta, a teacher, had already heard about Falun Dafa. After signing a petition condemning the persecution in China, she looked through the information to learn more. Pointing to a photo of a local group doing the exercises together, she said one of the practitioners was a former student of hers. She also talked to the practitioners at the booth about them coming to give a presentation at her school.
One woman stayed for a long time reading brochures and learning the exercises.
“As I passed by the booth, I saw this place surrounded by golden light and felt very happy. I just knew I had to learn this,” she said.
