Practitioners taught children and their teachers the Falun Dafa exercises at Nene Hatun Kindergarten in Samsun on Monday, February 5.

Children and teachers gave the Dafa practitioners a warm welcome and expressed their curiosity. The children tried the exercises and repeated the words “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They said they felt energized and relaxed after doing the exercises. The teachers said that they had not heard of Falun Dafa before and would investigate further.

Practitioners offered free teaching of the Falun Dafa exercises at the Ecological Living Centre on Sunday, March 10.

During the event, Mesut Kösedağ, the Republican People’s Party (CHP) candidate for Mayor of Kadıköy, passed by. The practitioners invited him to the hall and gave him Falun Dafa information. He said he liked the origami lotus flower with a card attached that said, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” He said he would take it to his wife.

İlke Tuhta, an assistant director and biology graduate, shared her thoughts with practitioners after trying the exercises.

“I happened upon Falun Dafa while I was studying. I researched it and wanted to experience it for myself. As I did the exercises I felt my nerves and muscles relax. I felt good and stress-free. Thank you very much,” she said.

İlke Tuhta said practicing Falun Dafa made her feel refreshed.
