A New Practitioner's Cultivation Experiences
(Minghui.org) I have been practicing Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, for more than a year. Throughout the year, I've come to realize that cultivation is the most important turning point of my life. It is exactly what I have longed for deeply in my heart. It enables me to understand the meaning of life.
Dafa Saved My Life
I suffered from cerebral thrombosis in 2010 and had stayed in the hospital several times. I have spent a lot of money on medical treatment, but my health only got worse. My family grew more and more worried, and I was losing faith in the treatment.
However, I was lucky enough to be acquainted with a Dafa disciple. When I was on the brink of collapse, he introduced Falun Gong to me and gave me two Dafa books. After I read the books, I realized that Falun Gong is a Buddha Fa, which can save people and lead them to a glorious future.
I disposed of all the medicines provided by the hospital and got rid of my crutches. I knew that Master had given me a second life, as I was quickly restored to health after taking up the practice.
To thank Master for his salvation, I became determined to practice diligently and save sentient beings actively.
Master Teaches Us to Be Considerate
I saw an elderly woman sitting on a stone stool at the curb of a market street. She was surrounded by several people.
I walked close to her and asked, “Are you alright? Why are you sitting here in this chilly weather?”
She looked at me sadly.
“ I just fell and hurt my leg. I cannot walk home on my own,” she said.
I offered to take her home. She was stunned and asked if I was concerned that she was a thief. I told her that I am a Dafa practitioner and our Master asks us to be considerate to others.
She said to me in tears, “You are a good person. So many people have passed by and you are the one who offered to take me home.”
Dafa Gives Me Energy
Falun Dafa is a superior Buddha Law of the Buddhist school. It helps people become healthier. It teaches people to become honest, tolerant, kind, and peaceful.
I have changed greatly after practicing Falun Gong. I am energetic and rarely feel cold; sometimes on cold days, I don't even need a heavy jacket.
“It is so amazing!”
I went shopping on a small electric scooter one day. On my way home, I saw a woman pushing a buggy with a child inside toward me. To avoid hitting the buggy, I quickly swerved onto the sidewalk. The scooter tumbled and I fell down.
The woman came and asked me if I was hurt. I got up and patted the dirt off my clothes. When I told her that I was alright, she was surprised and said, “You must be a Falun Gong practitioner. It is so amazing!”
I asked her and her child if they were both fine. When they said they were, I happily replied, “Yes, I am a practitioner. Falun Dafa saved my life!”
“Because I am a Dafa Disciple.”
The floor right above me was being remodeled. When I was on the computer one day, two large pieces of cement blocks fell down onto my computer.
The neighbor came down to check on me.
“Did you get hit? It seems the computer is gone. I will pay for your new computer.” he said.
I said, “You don't have to do that. No one wants to see this kind of accident happen. My brother has an old one that I can use.”
He still felt bad and wanted to pay me a few hundred yuan. I politely declined his offer, telling him that I am a Dafa disciple.
Spreading Dafa to More People
As a Dafa disciple, I really hope that every being can understand the facts about Falun Gong. I always have Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, “Disintegrate the Party Culture” , and other Dafa books with me when I see friends and colleagues. I'd go around visiting people for this express purpose.
During these visits, many of my colleagues have told me that they fully understand that only Falun Dafa can save people. Many friends also indicated that they wanted to immediately start cultivation after they read the books.
I will continue handing out those Dafa books to people. I will help people remember that “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”.
