(Clearwisdom.net) I am a sixth-grade student attending elementary school. Just shortly after the school began this semester, my teacher asked us to read a heavenly book called Zhuan Falun and also taught the female students in my class how to do the Falun Gong exercises.
I have found that reading Zhuan Falun has been very good for me. Before I had read Zhuan Falun I would easily lose my temper, but now I have learnt to control it better and I don't lose my temper as easily. Sometimes I would also fight with my younger brother, but now I never fight with him as my temperament has also improved. Before the students started to practice Falun Gong we were very noisy and would fight with each other during our break time. Since we started to practice Falun Gong, we behave very well.
Before, when the male students in my class decided they disliked a certain female student, I followed them and stop talking to her. After reading Zhuan Falun, I went to her and reconciled with her, which made her very happy. When the male students say bad words to her, she wants to retaliate and return the abuse. I prevent her, saying, "It doesn't matter if they say bad words to you, because when they do, they give you the white substance -- de [When one does a good deed, one acquires this white substance, de], and your black substance -- karma [When one does a bad deed, one obtains the black substance, karma], will be given to them. Then your karma will be reduced. Through this we became good friends."
A while ago, I read Zhuan Falun twice, but I still didn't understand what genuine cultivation practice was. Now, I have finally realized that the principles stated in Zhuan Falun need to be applied in our daily life.
I will spend my summer holiday time to diligently read Zhuan Falun and practice the exercises. I will take care of my younger brother and I will never fight with him. I will never say bad words to other male students and moreover I will change my menacing character and harmonize with my classmates.
Certainly, I must thank the author of Zhuan Falun, our great merciful Teacher.
