A Young Person Finds a True Practice
(Minghui.org) I am a young Falun Dafa practitioner who began to cultivate in 2012 and experienced many ups and downs. I sometimes was more diligent than other times, but I have never missed studying the Fa for one day.
Life Before Practicing Dafa
I had converted to Buddhism before I started to practice Dafa. I became a modern Buddhist who studied Buddhism to become virtuous. But I still was polluted by the poisonous, mundane world. I read books about Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, and others, but now understand that I was still descending on a path to disaster.
After I graduated and entered society, I was constantly vying with people for fame and personal benefits. I indulged in my desires without any restraint.
I had to have a major operation and even dreamed that I almost ended up in hell. However, the king of hell said that my lifespan was not up yet.
A college professor co-rented a room with me. She explained the truth of Falun Dafa and the despicable acts committed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
I was not really interested in what she had to say but was engrossed when she talked about the principles of the Fa. I felt that it was rare to find someone with whom I could discuss metaphysical issues. Everything she said was very logical.
Cultivation Path Is Difficult
She let me read a chapter called “Loss and Gain” from a Dafa book. After I showed interest, she told me that the book was Zhuan Falun. I borrowed it.
After I finished reading the book, all the answers that I had so painfully sought all these years seemed to have been answered. This was what I was looking for, and I decided to practice Falun Dafa.
This teacher introduced me to a very diligent older practitioner. She introduced me to Master Li Hongzhi’s (the founder) other lectures. It took me about a month to read nearly 90 percent of Master’s lectures.
I started to go out to talk to people about Dafa and the persecution. When I tried to talk to my classmates, they would not listen, and I felt very disappointed.
That night, I had a dream. I dreamed of “The Journey to the West.” Along the way, there were sandy winds, loose rocks and a priest and his three disciples who progressed with much difficulty. After I woke up, I understood that the path of cultivation is very difficult.
With the help of the older Dafa practitioners who cultivated very diligently, it allowed me to maintain a very positive cultivation state. I got up at 5:00 a.m. every morning to memorize the teachings.
Talking to People about Falun Dafa
We prepared Falun Dafa informational materials, including booklets and brochures.
I would always talk to the taxi driver every time I took a cab home from work. As a result, many taxi drivers understood the truth about Dafa and quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
During those days, I really felt that I was constantly immersed in the Buddha’s light. I would often dream of flying, going over mountains and ridges, flying through the clouds, speeding through the universe or speeding into the microscopic world, seeing many splendid scenes along the way.
We then started to clarify the truth using mobile phones. Another practitioner drove the car while I made the calls. I had very good results.
I also told them why they needed to quit the CCP and how the CCP has destroyed people’s moral values, and in the process of this, they were destroying mankind. I also told them how Dafa tries to awaken the conscience of people.
Many were very thankful and wanted to pass on the message to their relatives and friends. Some even asked how they could find me.
There was one person who did not have a friendly attitude when she first picked up the call, but when I started to clarify the truth, she listened very attentively and said in the end, “I have received many such phone calls, and in the past I would hang up, but today when you called, I got so interested that I kept listening!”
I know all these predestined people are helping to encourage me to persevere on my cultivation path and also to persevere in my truth-clarification activities.
