  • The Power of Compassion

    One day on the subway, a person who looked like someone from South America sat next to me. Looking at his clothing, I didn't think he would be interested in Divine Performing Arts. Then, I remembered that I should not judge a person by his clothes and I decided to hand him a flier. As I hadn't handed any materials on the subway for a long time, this little task seemed as hard as the first time I made truth-clarification phone calls to China
  • The Story of "Ms. Falun Gong"

    Ms. Xia firmly believed that she came here to offer people salvation and do what Master asked her to do; she would not be disturbed by human thoughts. She responded, "I am very sincere in wanting to help you; that is why I tell you the truth. If you want to arrest me, you will add more karma to yourself. I came to this area to explain the facts, and I am not afraid of being arrested. If you want to get more karmic retribution, go ahead and arrest me." That policeman left quietly, with his head down.
  • Clarifying the Truth in Another City

    We thus started a Fa-study site. Five hired helpers and one of my co-workers started to practice. Soon afterwards, our sales improved. In the past, they could only distribute a little advertisement materials and had to discard the rest. After beginning to practice and following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, all the advertisement materials were distributed. Because of this, their wages increased.
  • Looking Within and Finding My Own Responsibility

    He taught me for two to three days but I still did not know how to use it. The last time, while he was still busy doing something else, I called him to come to help me. I complained that he was not patient in teaching me by saying that if he had been a little more patient I would have mastered the skill. Not long afterwards, police arrested him. When I learned the news, my first thought was that his cultivation had not been good; he had loopholes and he had not studied the Fa enough. Now when I think of this again I feel that had I not taken so much time from him, his cultivation would have been better. How could I still complain about the fellow practitioner?
  • Dig Out the Root of Jealousy

    When I dug out the roots, I discovered that my jealousy was frighteningly strong. Now I have a deeper understanding of Master's words, "If jealousy is not abolished, everything that you have cultivated will become fragile" (Zhuan Falun). To me, not only did the jealousy make my cultivated side fragile but it also enabled other attachments to become stronger and harder to get rid of.
  • With Dafa in Mind, No Barriers Can Stand In My Way

    I said, "Dafa practitioners don't do immoral things--what we do is all for others." The CCP agent said, "If that's the case, why would you go to Beijing? Why do you ask people to withdraw from the CCP?" I said, "Going to Beijing is to tell the government not to persecute good people cultivating Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Advising people to withdraw from the CCP is saving them." I wasn't scared even though I was confronting many of them.
  • Young Practitioner: Looking Inside and Doing the Three Things Well

    When I started going to school, I encountered xinxing (character) tests more and more. When classmates or students hit me and took advantage of me, I took it happily and let it go because Master said that when cultivating and reaching the Arhat position one should always be happy, so I followed Master's teaching when doing things.
  • Enlightening Through Sickness Karma

    I realized that on some level, I was thinking, "If I practice Dafa, I'll never get sick and always have a light, healthy body; I'll get into all the schools I want; everywhere I go people will like me because I'm such a good person; and I'll stay young and beautiful forever and ever!" How far is that from the standard of a cultivator? Good things come from practicing Dafa, but they're not for the purpose of living well among everyday people. They're for cultivation practice. They're for aiding Master in Fa-Rectification.
  • New Practitioner: Dafa Brings Good Fortune to My Home

    Through my mother's efforts, my father was also willing to practice Falun Gong. My mother-in-law taught him the movements, and my father read Zhuan Falun with us. My father had suffered from pain in his hip joints. Even on a very soft, thick mattress, he often woke up because of the pain. After practicing Falun Gong, the pain disappeared. Also, he was seriously addicted to drinking alcohol before, yet he gave it up for good after practicing Falun Gong.
  • Children Are a Mirror of Our Cultivation

    A few days ago, my son was home alone when there was a blackout. When we got home, he was very excited to tell us that Teacher gave him a test by having him be alone in a dark room. He said that he was not scared because he had Teacher in his mind. Having faith in Teacher had firmly rooted in his mind.
  • Recalling My Cultivation Path

    After a few days, the two uncles told my father-in-law in tears, "You are so lucky to have such a good daughter-in-law." I told them with a smile that this was because I was a practitioner, and cultivated Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and that practitioners treat everyone well because we are compassionate.
  • Young Practitioner: A Brief Recounting of My Cultivation Experiences

    I realized that, as a practitioner, I needed to be able to endure, tolerate, and to have self-control and self-restraint. Otherwise, how could I be more compassionate, or elevate myself? I needed to look inward and be tolerant of others. If I always treated others with a kind heart, was considerate of others, and if I had a pure and selfless mind, would I still have fights like these?
  • My Experiences Clarifying the Truth

    This employee came to work early and stayed late and never cared about self-interest. The boss was very satisfied with her and told the person in charge of hiring at the factory, "Please keep an eye out for me. I want to hire whoever practices Falun Gong, and that person won't be underpaid."
  • Follow Teacher to Save Sentient Beings

    On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started its persecution of Falun Dafa. That night, someone from the local police station took away Teacher's photo and Zhuan Falun from my home. I was very sad, since Falun Dafa is the most precious thing in my life. I deeply regretted that I was not able to protect Teacher's photo and Zhuan Falun. I did the fifth exercise with tears in my eyes.
  • Using Personal Experiences to Clarify the Truth

    After listening to my experiences, they sat down. I told them that through practicing Falun Gong, I no longer needed the crutches, and that I had completely recovered. They all expressed sympathy, and were impressed by the miracle of Dafa. Before they left, the director said, "If you think it is good, you can practice at home. We will not watch over you all day long." They had come to arrest me, but the result was that I had the opportunity to clarify the truth. With Teacher's compassionate protection, I clarified truth with wisdom.
