(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in October 2013. My younger sister had introduced it to me about ten years ago, but I wasn't interested. I thought I was just responsible for my family and work, and I didn't really have time for anything else. Also, when I read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, I couldn't concentrate.

Years of Party culture education made me not dare to learn more about the practice earlier. I missed a chance to start practicing Dafa until much later. Last year, I was lucky to meet up with Falun Dafa again.

Walking Into Cultivation

I received a phone call in 2012, asking me to deliver one of the products I was selling. I thought it was a service request from a new customer. This is how I met Ms. Jia, a young lady. It turned out, however, that she was a messenger from my sister, telling me that she was safe.

My sister has firmly cultivated in Falun Dafa for many years. She experienced forced labor, sentencing, torture and her home was ransacked again after she was released from a seven-year prison term.

She had left her home a little early, or she would have been illegally arrested with four other practitioners after her release. She became homeless and destitute. She could not contact me directly and I had been worrying about her.

I really appreciated the message. Ms. Jia said: “You and your sister have deep affection. Your sister is a diligent practitioner. You should read the Falun Dafa books too.”

I Could Finally Comprehend the Falun Dafa Book

I obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun in May 2013. I read one lecture every day. I understood more and more after reading the book several times. It cleared up the confusion which was in my head for many years. I could understand the reason for the tribulations I suffered. I understood the real purpose of life, which is to assist Master in the Fa-rectification.

I started to study the Fa and do the exercises on October 16, 2013. It wasn't easy to sit in the lotus position when doing the sitting exercise. At the beginning, I sat with one leg crossed for half an hour and it was very painful. I kept increasing the time and could sit with one leg crossed for one hour after three months. I have done the exercises for less than one year, and I no longer feel any discomfort.

Experiencing the Mighty Power of Dafa

About one month after I started to practice Dafa, I went to another city with Ms. Jia to rescue another practitioner from prison after her term expired. We went to a practitioner's home to send righteous thoughts because his home was very close to the prison.

Three practitioners and I sat on a bed and sent righteous thoughts. I clearly felt the bed shaking and my fingertips tingling. Other practitioners told me it was an energy field. We heard that after an hour the local 610 Office took the practitioner from the prison to a local police station.

Practitioners came up with different reasons for her not to be released. One of us said that we had a loophole and should search inwards. My sister thought we should keep sending righteous thoughts. After some more discussion, the group decided to continue sending righteous thoughts.

It took quite some time and some further actions, but finally the practitioner was released. We got him and left without any further problems. I experienced Dafa's divine power. It really is true:

“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide”(“The Master-Disciple Bond” from Hong Yin Vol. II)

I witnessed Master's grand compassion and fellow practitioners' cooperation and persistence.

Urgency to Save People

One day when I was meditating, I recalled that Master mentioned it was urgent to save people. I thought in my heart: “Master, is it really urgent?” I heard a bird calling “Ji! Ji! Ji!” outside the window [Note: “Ji” sounds similar to “Urgent” in Chinese].

I realized that saving people was important. I enlightened that I couldn't save people at a higher level than me if I didn't cultivate well. So, I got up at 3:40 a.m. and did the exercises every morning, sent forth righteous thoughts and studied the Fa. Master adjusted my body several times.

I invited old friends during the Chinese New Year holidays. My sister and I cooperated in clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa to them. She spoke to the people and I sent righteous thoughts. About 40 people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.

Helping a Stubborn Elderly Aunt

One of my aunts is over 70 years old. She is the backbone of her home and has the final say, be they big or small things. Her husband was critically ill, and after first agreeing to quit the CCP and its affiliates, he changed his mind. He passed away soon after.

I wanted to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to my aunt. I knew she was stubborn and I needed to communicate with her from the heart. I invited her to stay in my home for several days. I talked to her about Falun Dafa. She repeated the lies which were spread by the Party. I showed her all of my truth-clarification DVDs. She gradually understood the facts about Falun Dafa.

Several days later, I asked her: “I will visit fellow practitioners today. They can help you quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.” She agreed. I said that her husband could also quit. She had doubts and said: “He has passed away. How is it possible?” I told her it would be okay as long as family members agreed. She accepted my words and quit for herself and her husband.

Cultivation is serious. There are many things I need to do. I will be more diligent and catch up with the Fa-rectification progress.
