My Cultivation Story
(Minghui.org) I was an emotional person who worried about death and sickness for years. I was in search of a cultivation practice that would free me from my fears and, ultimately, discovered Falun Dafa in 1996. Despite all of the tribulations that I’ve encountered, I was able to overcome difficulties based on my firm belief in Master and the Fa.
Dafa changed my life, and my health greatly improved. Physical problems, such as irregular heart beat and cervical calcification, were all cured, and my complexion became rosy.
Thus, I felt very fortunate to be able to introduce Dafa to many people. Some of my relatives and neighbors also began to practice Falun Dafa as well.
Grateful for Master’s Salvation
When I think about Master and Dafa, I cannot help but feeling a sense of pride. Master has done so much to ensure our safety.
An example of this occurred shortly after I began to practice. I heard a discharging noise from the kitchen, which turned out to be the pressure cooker missing its cap. Porridge and hot steam boiled over everywhere. Panicked, I dashed into the kitchen, but had trouble turning off the gas. Boiling porridge got all over my face and body, and also got on my husband. At that moment, I yelled out, “Master, help me!” The gas flame immediately turned off and, instantly, the steam dissipated.
My husband and I washed our faces and were both surprised to be unscathed. There was only a small red spot on my face. Our company’s HR section chief happened to stop by that day. He was amazed when he heard about our incident. He said: “Your family must have special protection; the boiling porridge on your face did not cause any burns. It is truly a miracle.” I told him, “I have protection from my Master.”
One day I attended a business conference in the city. Afterward, I was following the crowd to exit the building and suddenly fell all the way down to the bottom of a staircase. I immediately remembered to ask Master to protect me, so I stood up slowly and walked back to my car.
Even my younger sister, who did not practice Falun Dafa, benefited from my practice. In September 2011, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Prior to that, her entire family had withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. After the diagnosis, she followed my advice and repeatedly recited aloud: “Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!” Her husband also joined in. During a medical checkup three days later, the tumor’s status changed from malignant to benign. She began to practice Falun Dafa after experiencing that miracle.
Clarifying the Truth to Save People
Since the CCP began to persecute Falun Dafa in July 1999, I have clarified the truth to thousands of people.
In 2005, I clarified the facts about Falun Dafa to a village council member, and he immediately agreed to withdraw from the CCP. He gave me thumbs up and said: “The people that I admire the most are Falun Dafa practitioners; you are truly remarkable. The Party is going to die.” He also cautioned me to stay safe.
A year later, a man in his 30s showed up at my store. His last name was Tashi and he was from Tibet. He happened to be visiting his cousin and was planning to rent a building to start a business. I told him the facts and asked him to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated youth organizations. He immediately agreed to renounce his past memberships of the Communist Youth League and Young Pioneers. He said that the CCP exerted very harsh control over Tibetans. His younger brother was a Lama who secretly kept some Tibetan Buddhist portraits. However, whenever the local Party officials came to inspect his temple, he had to bring out the portraits of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping.
I told Tashi about Falun Dafa and Master, and he expressed an immediate interest in reading Dafa books. When I handed him Zhuan Falun with both hands, he received the book in the Tibetan tradition by kneeling on one leg and raising both hands above his head. When he opened the book and saw Master’s portrait, his eyes filled with tears. He told me that Master Li was his true Master and that he would begin cultivation right away. He was so grateful that he bowed to me several times.
Two days later, Tashi came back and presented me with a white khata (a traditional Tibetan scarf) to thank me for telling him about Dafa. He told me he decided not to do business here. As it turned out, Master had arranged for him to travel thousands of miles just to find Dafa.
In the summer of 2011, I went to visit my son in another city. On the bus ride home, I had a chance to talk to a man in his 50s. I told him about the movement of withdrawing from the CCP., and he agreed to go online and withdraw from the Party with his real name. He said, “I stopped trusting the Party years ago.” I also told him about Falun Dafa being spread throughout the world, as well as the CCP’s persecution. He was shocked to learn the facts. Before his departure, he shook my hand and said: “It was an honor to have met you. You opened a window for me.”
Master has given practitioners this wonderful Fa. It is important that we follow Master and do the three things well.
