(Minghui.org) After Falun Dafa was introduced to the public in 1992, people could be found practicing the exercises to the beautiful music in every park in our southern city. Tourists were fascinated by the peaceful atmosphere of the group exercises.

On June 10, 1999, Jiang Zemin's regime established the 610 Office and plotted a large scale suppression of Falun Dafa. Practitioners were monitored and followed. A large Falun Dafa experience sharing conference in our city was originally planned for that time, but was canceled because we couldn't rent a conference site. So instead, we held small experience sharing conferences at the group exercise sites. The group from our practice site held a conference in a park in late June 1999. It was our last experience sharing conference before the persecution began.

Fellow practitioners gathered in the park before sunrise. We did the exercises in a group and shared our experiences. Several strangers showed up before our conference started; many of the women among them wore blue skirts similar to the police uniform. The strangers sat among the practitioners and occasionally took pictures. We knew very well who they were, but we remained calm and peaceful. Many practitioners quietly gave their sitting pads to the strangers.

Twelve practitioners shared how practicing Falun Dafa brought beneficial changes to their health and morality. Every one of them spoke calmly and with dignity.

Practitioner A developed endometrial cancer in her 30s, and she had to periodically undergo chemotherapy. She lost all her hair and looked pale and weak. In addition, her relation with her husband worsened. She lost hope. Seemingly by chance, she learned about Falun Dafa. Before long, her cancer was gone. Even her doctor thought it was incredible. She became strong and looked young and pretty again. Even her hair grew back, and, to her surprise, it was curly. She said, “It was Master who saved me.”

Practitioner B introduced Falun Dafa to 14 people in his family. The oldest was in her 80s and the youngest was 7 years old. His family did the exercises as a group every day. Everyone conducted himself or herself according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and thus, all conflicts were easily resolved. His family was very healthy and calm. Although she was in her 80s, grandma's grey hair became black again. The children's school performance soared. Those who worked had good jobs and good businesses. Their neighbors praised their happy family.

Practitioner C said she used to be calculating, had a lot of health problems, and got along poorly with others. She had always thought others weren't fair to her, so she was angry with them. After she learned Falun Dafa, she enlightened to the real reason for living and the truth about losses and gains. She stopped fighting for her benefits and became kind and tolerant. Her relationships improved. Without her realizing it, she became healthier and healthier. At the end of her sharing she said, “Falun Dafa cleansed my body, my mind, and my spirit!”

Many practitioners shared their experiences of how they safely escaped danger, returned money they had found, resisted bad temptations, improved family relationships, and became considerate of others at work. Their nobility and unselfishness benefited society. All of the practitioners were grateful and respectful to Master from the bottom of their hearts. Master had gone through untold hardships to offer everyone such a great cultivation practice.

Practitioners' real-life examples validated the power of Falun Dafa and touched everyone in the audience.

As practitioners shared their feelings of happiness with each other after the conference, the strangers quietly left. A couple of them left pretty late. Some of them approached us as we were taking down the speaker equipment. One of them gave us a thumbs up and said, “Falun Dafa is great!”

Later we confirmed that these strangers were plainclothes police. They had been assigned to monitor our conference by the 610 Office.

Every time I recount this unforgettable experience sharing conference, I feel Master's greatness and compassion, as well as the honor and responsibility of Falun Dafa practitioners in the Fa-rectification period. I will treasure this opportunity, advance steadily in my cultivation, do well on my Fa-rectification path, and be a true Falun Dafa practitioner.
