(Clearwisdom.net) When I had some basic questions after reading Zhuan Falun, a female Chinese practitioner in our city advised me to read Master's other lectures to gain a deeper understanding and improve myself.

During the same time, a Malaysian practitioner and his wife visited our city and gave me books with Master's past lectures. In fact, I had already bought books of Master's lectures a few years before, but I rarely studied them, as I felt that I could not understand them. When this couple offered me the books, I realized that there must be a meaning behind their act. Thus, I started reading the lectures and felt happy that I was able to understand the content. This helped me a lot to understand the importance of doing the three things daily. Since then, and also after I read some articles on the Clearwisdom website, I have made it a point to do the three things without fail, except under very rare circumstances. I started getting up at 3:20 a.m. daily, studying the Fa after sending forth righteous thoughts, and then going to the practice site at 5:30 a.m. for exercises. This has become my set schedule, in addition to doing Fa-related activities daily. Slowly but surely, I have been improving in sending forth righteous thoughts at the set global times. I have reduced my sleep time and started devoting more time to introducing Falun Gong to more people.

While reading Master's lectures, I realized the great importance of clarifying the truth and that I should do the best I can in doing so. A local practitioner and I got three large boxes of the Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Art Exhibition paintings from another city. We then conducted an art exhibition at a local club. We invited members of the press, who were shocked to learn about the persecution in China, and reported this in the following day’s newspapers, along with details about the Falun Gong practice.

I recently had to conduct a business dealers’ meeting in a city 150 kilometers from my city of Hyderabad. I decided to present an art exhibition there and found a courier to transport the paintings. All local practitioners participated in the event. The dealers from my meeting and other people who saw the paintings couldn’t believe that such cruel methods were applied to crush a great spiritual practice that is based on truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance. This too was reported in the local press the next day.

I then had to conduct another dealers' meeting in the far away city of Rajamundry, and coordinated with other practitioners to take the exhibit there.When I booked train tickets to Rajamundry, I made an error and mistakenly booked the trip for two days earlier than needed. Instead of canceling and rebooking however, local practitioners and I decided to leave on the reserved day and conduct two art exhibitions in two cities, Vishakapatnam and Rajamundry. Many people attended the exhibitions and were shocked to learn the facts about the persecution in China. Many signed the petition, demanding an immediate end to this human rights atrocity.

In the morning, before the exhibit opened at the faculty club of Andhra University in Vishakapatnam, we did exercises at the sea shore and distributed many informational flyers to passersby. Many retired staff, professors, and other experts from the university attended the exhibit. Some even bought Falun Gong books after learning about the practice. We also showed them the exercises and distributed the flyers.

Some professors suggested that we talk to the head of the Yoga Institute, which is affiliated with the university. The head of the Yoga Institute showed a lot of interest and asked us to introduce Falun Gong to the university's yoga students. He also said that he would issue a press release to disseminate the information, as he agreed that the practice is good for public health and well-being. I think it is a miracle that we were able to meet such a great and influential contact, and we are now planning to visit this city again to introduce Falun Gong to the university's yoga students.

The morning after we met with the head of the Yoga Institute, we did the exercises at the beach and distributed informational flyers to many passersby in a local park in Rajamundry. Many people who saw the art exhibition in Rajamundry also signed the petition to end the persecution.

I think my booking the train tickets two days early was a perfect arrangement of our revered Master, so that we could clarify the facts to more people.
