  • Remembering Master’s Miraculous Cures

  • When We Cultivate Diligently, Master Can Turn the Tide

    I first learned about Falun Dafa in the autumn of 1996. However, I was not serious about practising at that time because I was busy with my restaurant business. I became a diligent practitioner after a series of disasters brought chaos to my life.

    Over the past two years, I've often heard stories about fellow practitioners suffering from sickness karma. I would like to talk about my own experience of breaking through the illusion of sickness karma, and my understanding of the topic.
  • Diligent Fa Study Was Fundamental to Passing Test and Getting Job

    I returned home in September 2012 to look for a job in my hometown. Because I'm a relatively new practitioner, I diligently study the Fa daily and therefore didn’t have time to study for the written test that all those looking for a job have to take. I spent only a little time reading several pages in a book that helped prepare for the test. My parents were worried and constantly urged me to study hard for the test.
  • Eliminating My Fundamental Attachment: Lust

    Years ago, when I started practising Falun Dafa, it was not because of illness. Rather, I heard people telling me that practising Falun Dafa could make one young, beautiful and healthy. Later, after I studied Master's scripture “Toward Consummation,” I thought I had found my fundamental attachment: the desire to be young and beautiful.

If I couldn't find the person who gave me the money, I would donate it to retirement homes or schools.

  • 14 Years of Resisting the Persecution: Falun Gong Practitioners Sow the Seeds for the Return of Good Values in China (Part 1)

    China's communist regime launched a campaign of systematic persecution to eradicate Falun Gong in 1999. Practitioners of the spiritual discipline countered the Party-mandated violence with efforts to peacefully resist. The environment at the time was heavy and oppressive, “as if the sky was falling”—a phrase commonly used by Chinese speakers to characterize such situations of terror, oppression and uncertainty.
  • I Am So Grateful: How I Restarted My Cultivation

    In 1998, I dreamed I joined other practitioners who were walking forward, but a mountain blocked our path. Master appeared in front of us with a whip in his hand. He struck the mountain, and a wide road appeared in front of us. We followed Master. After a while, Master said, “It's now time, move faster.” Then a light pushed us forward. A heavenly door appeared in front of us and celestial maidens spread flowers.
  • Why Do I Lack Compassion?

    One morning after I practised the exercises, I thought about the issue I've been struggling with: Why didn’t I have enough compassion? I remembered a fellow practitioner once pointed out that when I took care of my father-in-law, I was not afraid of cleaning up human waste because I was kindhearted.
