Doing What's Right Helps People Learn About Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) The first time I encountered Falun Dafa was through listening to Master Li’s recorded lecture series. I learned that no matter what the circumstance, we should always consider others first. And whenever we encounter conflicts, we should take a step back and look within ourselves for the cause. I agreed with these principles and made up my mind to become a Falun Dafa practitioner.
One day when I was cleaning at work, I found a large gold ring. I gave it to my manager and went to the registry to locate its owner. I called the person who had been in the room and asked if he had lost his ring. He was so touched that he gave our company an honorary flag. Someone told the newspapers, and reporters came to interview me. I told them that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner, and tried to live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
On another occasion, I found a wallet containing a 100 yuan bill. I showed it to my colleagues, who suggested we buy food with it. When I replied that I wanted to return it to its rightful owner, they thought I had gone insane. I told them that as a Falun Dafa practitioner, I could not keep what does not belong to me, and that I should consider others in all situations.
My manager once experienced severe pain in his back. He went to the emergency room where the doctors told him that he had acute renal calculi (kidney stones). They said that they needed to operate immediately, and that he had to pay a 5,000 yuan deposit. But he had already been paying for his father's cancer treatment and could not afford the added expense.
He was in excruciating pain when he remembered that I had told him that if he ever encountered a tribulation he could repeat, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He decided to give it a try and started repeating the phrases.
He fell into a deep sleep and dreamed that an old man with a long white beard sliced open his back and took out a fish. He held up the fish for him to see, then walked away. His dream was so vivid that it seemed to have really happened. His pain was completely gone.
When he woke up, he asked his mother if she had brought a doctor in to operate on him. She said that she hadn't. He went back to the hospital and was told that he was fine and didn’t need the surgery.
By practicing Falun Dafa my moral standard has improved, and many people have benefited. Thank you Master for your compassionate salvation!
