Two years ago I was lucky enough to be able to obtain a book called Zhuan Falun through a friend. After I finished reading it, I thought Zhuan Falun was very well written, but for different reasons, I did not truly start practising.
In August of 2003, I turned again to read Zhuan Falun, only this time with a mind of respect. I thought the principles that Teacher taught were so good. At that time my mood was precisely as described in Zhuan Falun:
"Many people have practised qigong for a very long time. There are also people who have never practised it, but who have pursued and pondered the truth and the meaning of human life. Once they learn our Falun Dafa, they will understand at once many questions in life that they have wished to understand but could not answer."
After reading the book for the second time, I told my friend, "I certainly must practise Falun Gong. May I keep the copy of Zhuan Falun?" From that day on, I began to truly practise.
At around the age of 30, I started to develop rheumatism, gynaecological problems, gastric disease, etc. I had tried different kinds of treatment methods, including Chinese medicine and Western medicine, but they were all ineffective. Although my initial purpose for reading Zhuan Falun was to become healthy and fit, in truth, I was really exhausted at that time, and I thought life had no meaning. On several occasions I contemplated suicide. Only after reading Zhuan Falun did I understand the real goal of life--to return to one's original and true self.
Ever since I started to practise in 2003, I have had firm belief in Master's teachings and I have followed the standards and requirements of Falun Dafa. By doing so, I had a quick elevation in my realm of thought. I know how to be a good person, to be a practitioner who is altruistic and considerate for the others. Through practising Falun Dafa, my body no longer holds any illness. The different kinds of diseases I had all vanished. In my daily life, a lot of the things I handled became simple.
My daughter was deeply poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party's culture in the past and was afraid to let me practise. I acted according to Master's1 teachings and started from being a good person. I showed good care and consideration for her in everything. When I taught by setting a personal example, she felt that a parent who practised Falun Dafa was better than other schoolmates' parents. She no longer opposed my efforts to let others know the truth about the practise and giving out flyers to save sentient beings. I should thank Teacher for his mercy with this. He gave my daughter opportunities to come into contact with and be able to come to understand Falun Dafa. That is, one should start from being a good person and understand that one should have self-restraint out of a sense of spiritual obligation, abide by high moral standards, and handle everything with "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance."
As my study of the Falun Gong teachings reaches new levels, I truly feel that Zhuan Falun is not only a book for health and fitness and becoming a good person, but it is the universe's great law, which can guide us to return to our original, true selves. It has been longed for by all living beings for thousands of years. I want to thank Teacher once more for his merciful salvation. We certainly will obey Teacher's requirements to do the three things well, to live up to the title of "Falun Dafa Practitioners." We will cultivate diligently until Consummation.
