1. Fortunate to be a Dafa Disciple in this lifetime

I started practicing Falun Gong in November 1998. At that time, we had our annual physical exam. My results showed that I had a lot of diseases, including lobular hyperplasia, heart disease, vocal nodules, surface antigen-positive disease and others. I felt very bad. I was only 40 years old. How could I have so many diseases? One night, I couldn't sleep. The next day, I got up early in the morning. I wanted to go to the park and see if there was any good exercise method that I might try.

The moment I arrived at the park, I was attracted by some beautiful music. It seemed to be coming from heaven. I went to the place where the music was and saw many people sitting there in meditation. I asked the people nearby what it was. One lady introduced me to Falun Gong. I immediately felt happy inside. I thought about my job as a teacher and that I did not have much spare time. This exercise was a good fit for me. The next morning, I went to the exercise site and started learning the Falun Gong exercises.

That night I went with the coordinator to the group Fa study. The coordinator asked me how I felt. I said that I had been very relaxed the whole day. During the Fa study, I did not have a copy of Zhuan Falun, so I shared the book with another practitioner. At that time, I could feel that this book explained the meaning of life. I was able to understand many issues that I had wondered about for years. Several days later, my husband and I got a copy of Zhuan Falun. When I opened the book, I saw Teacher's photo. I was so happy that I shouted out loudly, "I know Teacher!" He looked so familiar, so close and so peaceful. At that point, I started on my cultivation path.

2. I Wanted to Validate the Fa

On July 20, 1999, the persecution against Falun Gong was launched. That morning I went to the exercise site, where I saw police. Two other practitioners were there like me, just walking back and forth. I felt very sad and shed tears.

At that time, I only clarified the truth to my friends and people with whom I was familiar. I told them how good Falun Dafa was. I had only enlightened to this point. At that time, my enlightenment quality was low, and I did not go to Beijing to validate the Fa. Now, when I think about that time, I think it was all due to my selfishness.

To make up for the regret, I often talk about the truth of Dafa to people around me. I told friends and relatives about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) staged self-immolation on Tiananmen Square. I pointed out to my co-workers that if Liu Siying's trachea was cut open, how could she sing songs? How could they wrap people suffering severe burns with heavy bandages? People without medical knowledge should still know these basic facts. I pointed out the suspicious parts of the Tiananmen Square self-immolation story to them. They could not help but nod in agreement. I also brought along the CD about the truth of the Tiananmen Square self-immolation. I kept clarifying the truth to friends, relatives, and people I knew, and introduced them to Falun Dafa. Soon after, some of my friends, relatives, and co-workers started cultivating Dafa, or at least they came to understand the truth about Dafa.

3. Making Truth Clarification Materials by Myself

After July 20, 1999, I lost contact with most practitioners. Occasionally, I received Teacher's new lectures from an older practitioner. I read one that I received five times.

"As a Dafa disciple, no matter what the situation or what the circumstances, you have to study the Fa, and you can't neglect your own assimilation and improvement; you can't forget to study the Fa. If you don't study the Fa well, you won't be able to do Dafa work well." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston")

I thought that I must study the Fa more. Only with more Fa study could I do Dafa things well and do better in clarifying the truth to people.

I started to hand-copy Teacher's new lecture. But before I could finish it, I had to pass it along to other practitioners. So, I thought that if I could only print Teacher's new lecture and pass it to other practitioners, that would be great! As soon as I had this thought, another practitioner gave me the software to break through the CCP's Internet blockade. Then, I could easily visit the Minghui/Clearwisdom website. I was able to download Teacher's new lectures and the "Minghui Weekly." This provided truth-clarification materials to me and to other practitioners. I truly enlightened to "Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master." (Lecture One in Zhuan Falun) I printed the articles in the daytime and distributed them door to door at night. I wanted to let more people know the truth about Falun Gong.

After the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published, I read it once. I always felt that I had been affected by the Chinese Communist Party's party culture. My words would often reflect that party culture. So, I read the Nine Commentaries two more times, and I was able to truly realize the CCP's nature of "deception-wickedness-violence." Then, I felt that my heart was clear and my body was transparent. I wanted more sentient beings to be saved. I enlightened that when clarifying the truth we need to widely spread the Nine Commentaries to let people realize the party's nature. At night when I come back home, I print the Nine Commentaries. Every day when I go to work, I bring two copies, and distribute them whenever I have a chance. At night I distribute them to every household's mailbox with this one thought: "I hope the sentient beings who receive the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party can realize the CCP's nature, withdraw from the party and thus be saved."

Sometimes, I visit some former students who have graduated. I clarify the truth to their parents and give them the Nine Commentaries. After they read it, they come to know the truth. They took the initiative and wanted to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations. I am also responsible for providing the materials to a few new practitioners so that they can have truth-clarification materials in a timely manner, validate the Fa, and save more sentient beings.

4. Studying the Fa well is the Key to Saving Sentient Beings

Although I work during the daytime, at night I am busy making truth-clarification materials. I am quite busy, but I always remember to study the Fa. I study at least one lecture each day. I also go over Teacher's new lectures periodically. I participate in a group Fa study session, and formed a Fa-study group with several new practitioners. At the beginning, we had group Fa-study every night, as I understood that new practitioners must study Fa more.

I'm a disciple of Teacher. I have the responsibility to guide the new practitioners well. This is also validating the Fa and saving sentient beings. We finished studying Zhuan Falun and all of Teacher's new lectures. The new practitioners improved quickly in their understanding of the Fa. Soon afterwards, they went out to validate the Fa and urge people to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations. We now have the group Fa-study two nights per week. When we study the Fa, their children also participate in Fa study (those children are college students). These young people now also go out to clarify the truth and urge their classmates to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations.

Because we study the Fa well, one of my cousins (a new practitioner) was able to pass the test of sickness karma smoothly. My cousin had glaucoma before she started practicing Falun Gong, and her glaucoma had not really been cured. After she started practicing Falun Gong, one day she could not see and her eyes were in a lot of pain. That night she called me over and told me, "This time the tribulation is too big. I'm afraid I won't be able to pass it, thus I would lose this Dafa and not be able to cultivate any more." (Before this one she had already had some serious tribulations, and she passed them smoothly.) I told her, "No, you have good inborn quality, you can endure it. That is why Teacher added this test for you. Maybe Teacher wants you to cultivate faster and keep up with the first batch of disciples."

She said to me later, "My eyes were so painful, yet I still finished studying one lecture in the morning." I asked her, "When you were studying the Fa, were your eyes in pain?" She said, "Not really." I said, "Then let's study the Fa together. Maybe this is better." We studied Lectures Six and Seven. I asked her again if she was in pain, and she said that now she felt much better. Then I remembered Teacher's words,

"The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts." ("Drive Out Interference" in Essentials for Further Advancement II)

The next day the pain in her eyes was all gone. I once again felt the magnificence of Dafa.

When we study Fa more, our saving sentient beings is also smooth. We clarify the truth to people face to face, urging them to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations. Every day, we successfully urge several dozen people to withdraw. During the summer, my cousin and I also traveled outside of our hometown to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. We clarified the truth on the train and were able to urge over twenty people to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations. Among those people, there were college students, graduate students, farmers, migrant workers, and others. Seeing those people come to understand the truth and choose a beautiful future, we were happy for them in our hearts.

We should study the Fa more, study the Fa well, and save more sentient beings, thus fulfilling the responsibility of Dafa disciples in the Fa-rectification period.
