(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner in her 60s. I remember clearly how I learned about the cultivation practice of Falun Dafa in 1998.

I went to the morning market and settled into one of the booths, and a woman stopped by and said, “ You have already settled into the booth, which is fine.” She did not fight with me over this booth and went somewhere else to sell vegetables.

At the end of the day she asked me why I wore so many clothes. I wore a sweater and long woolen underwear. I wrapped my head with cloth and wore a hat when I stepped outside. I felt embarrassed, but answered that I had rheumatoid arthritis and was always in pain. She told me that a man who was diagnosed with the same illness could wear shorts during the summer after he started to practice Falun Dafa.

I told my husband that I would not sell vegetables the next morning, but find a Falun Dafa practice site. I left the house at 4 a.m. to find the practice site. As I did not know the location, I just walked until I saw a group of people and asked them if they practiced Falun Dafa.

Since they practiced Dafa I stood in the back of the group, watched and copied their movements. My neck which has been bent for some time straightened while I did the exercises. Within three days I no longer was in pain or experienced any other rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.

I studied the Dafa books and after some time all my ailments that had bothered me for many years disappeared. I no longer needed to wear a hat, sweater and long woolen underwear during the summer. I can now do all house chores, which I was not able to do in the past. My family all believe that Falun Dafa is good after they saw the changes in me.
