A Happy Family Living at the Top of Rueili Mountain, in the Alishan Tourist Area in Taiwan (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Mrs. Ye is 80 years old and lives at Rueili Mountain, Chiayi County in Taiwan. Her family runs a successful tour business and owns the famous Ruoh-Lan Resort. Besides her business being successful, all her children and grandchildren practice Falun Gong, which pleases Mrs. Ye very much. There are over ten people in Grandmother Ye's family who have practiced Falun Gong for more than five or six years. Her three daughters, who reside in Chiayi City, are all practitioners and all of their daughters are Falun Gong practitioners as well. Also, she has another daughter and son whose families are practitioners. Her daughter-in-law's family, who reside in Kaohsiung City, practice as well.

Fortunate to Obtain Falun Dafa
Speaking of how the entire family starting to practice Falun Dafa, Mrs. Ye's daughter, Ms. Ye Zhaorong, said, "In 2001, a local lady, who married and lived in Chiayi City, brought a book called Zhuan Falun to my family, and asked my two older sisters and my young brother to read it."
Mr. Chunxi said, "In 2003, when the disease SARS spread widely, our family didn't dare to take and guide the tourists around, fearing infection with SARS, so we all took it easy at home. During that period of time, a practitioner came by chance to our village to hold a nine-day lecture seminar for some fellow villagers to watch Teacher's Falun Dafa lecture series. So we all attended the seminars. In July of the same year, my sister, Zhaorong, came home to participate in my family party, and she too started to practice Falun Gong, and later my eldest sister also became a practitioner."
Spreading the Fa and Clarifying the Truth
At first, Ms. Zhaorong felt that Falun Dafa was a good meditation exercise so she wanted her fellow the villagers to benefit from it. Therefore, in August, she organized a nine-day lecture seminar, playing Teacher's Falun Dafa lectures on tape in the mornings. She said, "The villagers are always busy in the evening, so we started to play the tapes of Teacher's lectures at 5:00 a.m. There were approximately twenty or thirty people attending the seminars including a mother and daughter-in-law, with a child along. At that time, I only knew that Falun Gong was very good; I didn't realized that it was cultivation practice."
Since learning this cultivation practice, Mrs. Ye's entire family has become more peaceful and happier. During their daily work and life, they help and encourage each other according to the Fa. They have also written letters to the people in mainland China to tell them the facts about Falun Dafa. Grandmother Ye is illiterate, so she has asked her children to put the truth-clarification letters in the resort mailbox after they finish writing them, and she will be responsible for paying the postage, buying the stamps, and handing the letters to the mailman who comes to the mountain to get the mail.

Several years ago, Mrs. Ye's daughter-in-law installed a computer for Mrs. Ye and taught her how to use the computer to send emails to people in mainland China. She was so happy and insisted on taking care of the cost of the computer by herself. Her daughter-in-law said, "When my mother-in-law just started learning how to use the computer, she was unable to control the mouse well. She said that handling a mouse was heavier than carrying a hoe, so she used her other hand to control her mouse-hand saying to the mouse, 'Don't run.' She studied very attentively, and it only took her about a week to learn the skill of handling the mouse correctly."
Now Grandmother Ye sits in front of her computer and holds the mouse, saying, "Falun Gong is so great. I must tell people how great it is, and why it is being persecuted by the CCP."
