(Minghui.org) I was a soldier. Since elementary school, I had been indoctrinated, taught atheism, and brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party. After I witnessed how amazing and how wonderful Falun Dafa is, I eliminated atheism from my mind, and began my cultivation journey.

Dafa Displays Its Power

At the age of 20, my wife's limbs were weak and numb because her cervical spinal compressed nerves. Diagnosis by doctors at the Huaxi Medical School Hospital in Sicuan Province, indicated that surgery might not work and the risk of paralysis was great.

We visited many hospitals, as my wife wanted to live a normal life, despite the risk of paralysis. She had surgery at the Huaxi Medial School hospital in April 1998, and the result was paralysis.

Some people told me that my wife should practice Falun Dafa. There are many stories of people recovering from illnesses. So, I decided to take her to a Falun Dafa practice site. The practitioners taught her the sitting exercise, and told her some of the teachings of Dafa, including how to become a better person.

The next day, she got out of bed without any help, could walk, go up and down the stairs, ride a bicycle, and do household chores!

Learning Falun Dafa

I was amazed that my wife recovered so quickly and could walk again after only learning the Falun Dafa sitting meditation. I decided to take up this cultivation practice.

A practitioner told me about the book Zhuan Falun, and reading it would answer many of my questions. I borrowed Zhuan Falun from her.

Reading Zhuan Falun opened my mind to cultivation principles, such as if one does evil, one will experience retribution. This book changed me from being an atheist into a believer.

Falun Dafa is very profound. I understood at the beginning that I should be kind to others, and become a better person. Then, I learned that when one improves ones morals one would raise one's cultivation level. Besides, when one reached a higher level one would face less difficulties.

Being a Steadfast Practitioner

After I started to practice Dafa, the CCP launched its persecution of Falun Dafa. I went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa in June 2000. I was illegally detained at a detention center, and then transferred to a drug rehabilitation center.

They demanded that I give up Dafa. After I refused, I was expelled from the army. Over the next 10 years, they monitored me and came to my workplace to harass me.

I was again taken to a detention center in 2005 for refusing to give up my faith. The authorities pressured my workplace to fire me. The army confiscated my house in 2014.

I filed a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime, in 2015. For this, staff from the local community center and local police precinct harassed me four times.

No matter the troubles I face from the authorities, I will not give up my belief in Falun Dafa.
