Falun Gong enables one to become a good person
Practitioner Ms. Wang's whole family is practicing Falun Gong. She came to know Falun Gong six years ago from her parents-in-law, who were practitioners. She was pregnant at the time. By reading the Falun Gong books, she gradually understood what Falun Gong is about. She recalled that she was physically weak then, but unexpectedly, she was strong enough to give birth to her child. Hence, it built up her confidence in practicing Falun Gong and she has been practicing it ever since.
What makes her pleased the most is that her husband, who used to be hot-tempered, has changed to having an even temper after practicing Falun Gong. She said that she hopes everybody comes to learn such a good practice, because it is hard to have the opportunity back once we miss it.

It is the 10th annual World Falun Dafa Day this year. Local practitioners have celebrated the day in different places each year, hoping to bring the beauty of Falun Dafa to every corner of the country. This year, practitioners chose to come to Ipoh, the capital of Perak. Several police officers came to learn about Falun Dafa through the event.
Ms. Yang, one of the coordinators of the event, said, "I think that the police will gain a deeper understanding of Falun Gong. Dafa has been practiced until today, and people will become clearer about the magnificence of Dafa."
