(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in June 1996. Thanks to Master's compassionate care, I have been able to overcome tribulations and improve in cultivation.

Finding My Way Back

Soon after I moved to Japan in 2002, I joined the local practitioners in their truth clarification efforts. I once got lost while distributing Dafa brochures in an unfamiliar neighborhood and didn't know how to ask for directions in Japanese.

As I tried to figure out what to do, I heard Master's voice in my mind, “Go back.” I turned around, went back the way I came, and soon saw a practitioner's car parked by the curb.

Recovering After a Fall

While I was at a practitioner's house helping to fold Dafa brochures, I fell after standing up too quickly. My lower back was in a lot of pain and I couldn't stand up straight.

Several practitioners helped me to a bed so I could lie down and rest. I knew this was the old forces' persecution and refused to acknowledge it. I got up from the bed and sat down to send forth righteous thoughts. The other practitioners did the same as well.

It took me more than an hour to walk home that day, which generally took only 15 minutes. Once I got home, I wrapped my lower back with a piece of cloth and started making dinner for my husband. That night, I couldn't sit still to study the Fa, so I knelt instead.

Although I was in pain for the entire night, I still went out to distribute Dafa brochures the next day. Three days later, the pain had disappeared. This incident deepened my belief that as long as we resolutely believe in Master and the Fa, there's no tribulation that we can't pass.

Clarifying the Truth at the Chinese Consulate

I had the wish to send righteous thoughts and let people know about Dafa near the Chinese consulate. With Master's help, I won the lottery for a low income housing unit that was a two-minute walk from the consulate.

I was initially worried that my Japanese would not be good enough to converse with people. After sharing with fellow practitioners, I realized the importance of sending forth righteous thoughts at a close proximity to the Chinese consulate, and made up my mind to do it!

I prepared Dafa materials in Japanese. After reading the materials some people bought me coffee or hot tea and told me to stay warm.

I also gave copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and the Chinese Epoch Times newspaper to the Chinese people who visited the consulate.

I sometimes met people who believed the Chinese regime's propaganda. An exchange student from China kicked me while I was sending righteous thoughts. I stayed calm and didn't get upset. The consulate guards came over and took him to the local police station.

The police said that I could file a lawsuit against the exchange student, and that he would be detained. I knew that he was also a victim of the Communist Party's lies and didn't want the arrest to go on his permanent record. I asked another practitioner to clarify the truth to him. He eventually apologized.

Overcoming an Illness Tribulation

I woke up one day to find that my entire body was red and swollen. My legs were so swollen that I couldn't put on my pants. I also could not open my eyes. I had made plans to help distribute brochures that day at a tourist attraction.

I refused to let the evil get its way and decided instead to go to the Chinese Consulate to send righteous thoughts. I wore a face mask and left the house. I recovered within 24 hours.
