(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Daiping, I am 59 years old and have been practicing Falun Gong since July 20, 1995.

I really wanted to know the contents of Master's book Zhuan Falun when I started to practice, but I could not read. I held the book in my hands and asked Master for help, crying myself to sleep while still holding onto it. When I woke up, I saw lotus flowers on the pages. I thought that this might be a hint from Master, encouraging me to keep trying to read. When I looked at the book again, I could recognize some of the characters, but still had difficulty making out a complete sentence. I persevered with it and went to group Fa study. I wholeheartedly followed other practitioners in reading the Fa, and was eventually able to read the book.

I have now copied Zhuan Falun by hand four times, and listened to Master’s lectures in Dalian on numerous occasions. While I listened to the lectures, I tried to follow along with the words in Zhuan Falun. It wasn’t long before I was able to read the entire book. Whenever Master’s new articles were published, I would memorize them first and then ask other practitioners to help explain the words that I could not recognize.

I live in the northeast of China and practice the exercises outside for an hour every day, even in the winter snow. I did the exercises one time during a big storm, but I never felt it raining.

When we were moving a Dafa materials production site from one place to another, I was responsible for setting up the new site and had to move things in the rain. I had a wish that the rain would stop, so that we could easily move our things. Sure enough, the rain stopped just long enough for us to move all the equipment without any of it getting wet or damaged.

My husband's boss called and wanted him to collect a shipment of fruit from the port, where a consignment had just been delivered by ship. The sky had turned dark and it started to thunder and lightning. My husband was anxious to go, but worried that it may soon rain heavily. He looked at me, and I told him, “Just go, we will be all right.” After he left, I asked Master for help. If it did rain and the fruit was ruined by the rain, we would have to pay for the losses. To get to the port and back took between three to four hours. The rain managed to hold off until my husband returned home. Then it poured down.

When it approached the anniversary of the persecution, we organized several local activities: distributing truth clarification materials, hanging up banners and broadcasting the facts about the persecution through loud speakers. We set up speakers in many locations the day before the event. Then we broadcast the facts about Falun Gong in the morning as everyone went to work. The event seemed to make the authorities very nervous. They mobilized the entire local police force to search for suspects, but they failed to find anyone.

The police were searching for me in 2001, so for my safety my husband sent me to his sister’s home, which was 8 hours away by train. He told his sister to look after me and to make sure I stayed away from other practitioners. However, I still did what a practitioner should do. When my sister-in-law saw lots of posters about Falun Gong that I had put up in the entrance hall and hallway to the apartment building, she got angry and upset. She called my husband and told him to come and collect me. My husband showed up the next morning and said, “You cannot stay here because you are no longer welcome. You cannot go home either because the police are looking for you. What do we do now?” I said firmly, “Let’s go home, no matter what!” My husband realized that I was firm in my belief, and became supportive of me in my efforts to validate the Fa.

I was busy on a Dafa project in 2002, and had my own ideas regarding how it should proceed. As a result, I could not concentrate during Fa study. My lack of concentration created gaps for the old forces to exploit. I was later arrested, detained and tortured. Under Master's protection I managed to get released from the detention center. After two months of studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts and doing the exercises, my body had fully recovered from the maltreatment I was subjected to. I remained diligent in my cultivation and sending righteous thoughts, and managed to avoid being arrested again.
