Turning Point: Finding the True Purpose in Life
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 2015 and am 29 years old.
I was born into a family who was poor in material wealth, but of good hearts. They influenced me to have the heart of pursuing the Buddha and the Tao. After I grew up, I visited many temples in the mountains to seek the true way. I became a lay Buddhist and have been cultivating in the Buddha school for some years.
Almost Missing the Opportunity to Practice in Dafa
By chance, I met a Falun Dafa practitioner a few years ago. She was like an aunt to me. Since she believed that I was kind and had a good foundation for cultivation, she wanted to bring me into Dafa. But, I was not ready for this cultivation practice and refused to listen to her.
However, as Master said, “Predestined ties of countless lifetimes, Each has Dafa as its guiding thread ...” (“The Difficult Path to Godhood” from Hong Yin II) My predestined relationship with Dafa was strong.
I saw my relationship with this auntie practitioner, as I had the ability of precognition and retrocognition. She read Zhuan Falun to me even though I did not want to listen to her. Then, the sentences that talked about the layers of particles, the layers of cosmos and the lives of microscopic and macroscopic worlds opened up my sealed wisdom. I began to listen carefully and felt Falun Dafa's greatness through these words.
When she read Zhuan Falun to me again on the morning of May 18, 2015, I was touched. I heard a voice from inside myself: “I was born for the Fa.” I could not help but kept repeating it to the auntie, “I was born for the Fa.” Suddenly, a beam of warm light surrounded us. I knew that I had found the purpose of my life.
I was shocked when my master from the temple, who was in his 40s, passed away that afternoon. At his cremation I told him that I became a Falun Dafa practitioner and asked him to remember that “Falun Dafa is good.”
When I videotaped his cremation I saw a lotus flower rising, and knew that he would go to a good place.
Accepting Falun Dafa into My Life
Through more Fa study, I was made aware of the importance of clarifying the truth about Dafa and rising quickly in cultivation levels.
I met an old lay Buddhist. He had been indoctrinated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), as well as influenced by the Buddha school teachings. Even though he believed the CCP lies about Falun Dafa, I knew he was a kind person and needed to be told the truth.
He had the misconception that the CCP pays everyone's salary. So I told him that everyone works for it, instead, the CCP robbed the land from the people. I also talked about how the CCP had destroyed China's traditional culture and caused society's moral decline.
I introduced him to the Falun Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, how Dafa guides people to become a better person, that the Tiananmen self-immolation was staged, and Dafa has been spreading throughout the world.
Since he was a Buddhist, I told him that Master Li Hongzhi takes care of his practitioners and asks them to tell people the truth about Dafa and the CCP.
He finally understood and agreed to withdraw from the CCP. He thanked me and said that it is not easy for practitioners to help people understand the truth about Dafa, especially since the minds of many, like himself, are poisoned.
This was the turning point in my life, as from that moment I became a true Falun Dafa practitioner.
