(Clearwisdom.net) Revered Teacher, please allow me to extend my sincere and honorable wishes for your birthday.

I am a Chinese student studying in France. I came into contact with and began to practice Falun Gong under the influence of my parents, uncles, and aunts while visiting my family in China during the summer of 2007. I was affected gradually, without my being aware of it. Especially when I repeatedly read the book and listened to the recorded speeches, I felt that I had new enlightenment each and every time, and my mind became broader and my thoughts extended. I was moved to tears when I saw the video excerpts of some practitioners persisting in their cultivation in spite of the tribulations that they had encountered.

Although the duration of my cultivation has been rather short, I have strong confidence in my choice. It is not because of other practitioners' cultivation stories that I read; rather, it is because I have enlightened to things by studying the Fa rationally. I began to realize that I am not alone--there are other "mes" in other dimensions, that through studying the Fa one can transform oneself, that all the conflicts and unhappiness around me came about this way, etc.

Cultivating in Falun Dafa makes me better both physically and mentally. My realm is elevating. I will study the Fa hard and elevate my xinxing. I will always remember Teacher's words: "One's gong level is as high as one's xinxing level."

Thank you, Teacher.

Best regards,

A student in France
