A practitioner shares her experience on the stage.
Practitioners from ten to 85 years old shared their experiences in cultivating their xinxing and in clarifying the truth to save the world's people.
Ms. Ye Yuhan was the only elementary school teacher who received the "Teacher of the Year" award in Taiwan this year. Since she began practicing Falun Dafa, she followed the teachings of Falun Dafa and was an outstanding teacher in school. The class she taught was also the most outstanding at school. She often helped her colleagues as well.
She was nominated for Teacher of the Year for the past three years. This year the principal and her colleagues still encouraged her to participate. She realized that it wasn't accidental. She could clarify the facts about Falun Dafa through the application materials sent to the committee members at the Ministry of Education. The committee members interviewed her past students and their parents, and everyone gave her outstanding reviews. Ms. Ye attributed all her merits to her practice of Falun Dafa.
Ms. Lu Shu, 68 years old, from Taipei did the exercises at a practice site every day for the past 13 years. She spent 13 months memorizing Zhuan Falun in its entirety. She went to the Shilin Night Market to clarify the facts to tourists from China from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. every night, including typhoon days. When others suggested that there wouldn't be anyone reading the posters on a typhoon day, the coordinator told her that it would worth the effort even only one person read the poster. Her mind has never been shaken since that day.
Before practicing, Ms. Wen Hemei from Taichung dropped from 150 lbs to 103 lbs while having to take care of her husband who had a stroke. She regained her physical strength from practicing Falun Dafa. Though she only graduated from elementary school, she learned how to use a computer to clarify the facts of Falun Dafa to people. When she meditated near Sun Moon Lake, her arms were covered with mosquitoes biting her. She did not move and many passersby thought that she was a mannequin. After she was done, she had no welts from the mosquito bites on her and her skin was not itchy. She talked to tourists from China about Falun Dafa. She once helped over 90 Chinese tourists quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations in a week.
Ms. Lin Yufeng used to suffer from depression and a uterine tumor. She couldn't walk well with one of her legs shorter than the other. After she attended the nine-day Falun Dafa lecture session, she was free of illness and could walk for as long as she wanted. She persistently made phone calls every night to help the Chinese people quit the CCP organizations and to rescue practitioners in China who were illegally detained and tortured. Through various channels, she cooperated with local practitioners in China, and many times successfully rescued practitioners who were imprisoned. In the process, she also helped many police officers in China learn the facts about the persecution of Falun Dafa and helped them quit the CCP organizations.
Ms. Lin Fengying started to practice Falun Dafa in August 2009. She used to be a teacher who worked from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Since she began the practice, she changed her daily routine. She would join the group exercise before dawn; she finished reading all Teacher's lectures within two months after she began the practice; she started to clarify the facts of Falun Dafa after three months of practicing. Her life became busy, yet fulfilled. Once a Chinese person laughed at her when she clarified the facts online, but the next day the person called her and quit the CCP. Some listened to her quietly and repeatedly said thank you.
Ms. Lin has been a teacher for over 20 years. Chinese students liked to listen to her talking about the facts of Falun Dafa. Sometimes dozens of students listened to her and quit the CCP.
Ms. Jiang Fangyi used to be a doctor in China. She became a housewife after she married a Taiwanese man. She had become disappointed with her life and depressed. It wasn't until after she learned Falun Dafa that she became lively and full of hope. She helped call China to clarify the facts. When she went back to China to visit her family, she would fill her suitcase with truth clarification materials. She helped ten of her relatives and friends quit the CCP.
In 2008, Ms. Jiang's parents came to Taiwan and saw the Shen Yun Performing Arts. Her parents loved and admired the show. Jiang said that it was good to have become a housewife, otherwise she would have still been chasing fame and personal gain like other doctors in China. Now she is filled with compassion and thinks about validating the Fa all the time. She believes that this experience is priceless.
Ms. Du Fuying has been married to a Taiwanese man for more than ten years. She attended the nine-day lecture class in 1994 that was held in Tianjin. She remembered that it was just like what Teacher said in "Seeking Discipleship with Teacher" (Essentials for Further Advancement), "Dafa is being spread far and wide. Those who hear about it are looking for it. Those who have obtained it are delighted with it. The number of cultivators is increasing daily and becoming countless." In China, it used to be that when she went to the park in the morning, there would be a lot of people surrounding her asking her how to practice Falun Gong. When there were too many people in one exercise site, a new site would be established. Within a short time there were over 100 million practitioners in China. When the annual Falun Dafa experience sharing conference was held in China back then, the conference place was never big enough to accommodate everyone. Many of the practitioners had to stand outside.
Ms. Du was very moved being able to sit in a peaceful environment in Taiwan and listen to other practitioners sharing their experiences. She hoped that one day soon annual Fa conferences could be held in China again and she would definitely attend.
Ms. Liu from Taipei has been practicing Falun Gong for three years. She is an artist. This was her first time attending a Dafa conference. She could not stop crying while she listened to the sharing by fellow practitioners. She felt it was a great blessing that she was able to attend such a wonderful conference; she felt the sincerity and resolution in practitioners' hearts. She was touched by the practitioners working so hard and doing everything they could, rain or shine, to clarify the facts about the persecution to people in China. She saw the selflessness in them and knew that she needed to work harder to catch up in the practice.
The conference ended at 4:00 p.m. Practitioners encouraged one another to act and think righteously on their paths, so they could better save the people and not disappoint Teacher's compassionate salvation.
