(Minghui.org) Greetings, Revered Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!

Dafa Gave Me a New Life

I’m originally from mainland China. Obtaining the Fa in March 1999 is my life’s greatest blessing. Before I began practicing, my life was filled with tribulations and I suffered from many illnesses. Although I was only in my mid-twenties, I felt like I was already forty or fifty years old. I always wondered why I had to endure so much suffering; I lost all hope and didn’t have the will to live.

A few months after I began practicing, many of my ailments completely disappeared. I experienced Falun Dafa’s wonderful power!

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) head, Jiang Zemin, launched the persecution and slanderous campaign against Falun Dafa in July 1999, and later staged the Tiananmen Self-immolation hoax. I was illegally arrested from my workplace in March 2001 by CCP agents because I distributed truth clarification materials. I was illegally held in a detention center, my home was ransacked, and I was put on trial. My family members were not allowed to visit me.

While I was detained the guards threatened me and said I would be sentenced for seven years. At that time, my human notions emerged and doubts about Dafa clouded my mind. But I recalled how ill I had been, and how within just a few months of practicing, my health had been restored. Before I began practicing I was very selfish, emotional, and insecure about myself, always worrying about losing profits, always thinking about how to take advantage of others. My life was exhausting and filled with suffering. After I began cultivating Dafa and following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, I became a happy and cheerful person. I no longer cared about profits and gains.

The only thought I had was to remember Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and to keep cultivating my xinxing. My body was purified during that time. Pain in my lower back kept me awake for several nights, but I was well again during the day. I was detained for several months and then given an illegal three-year sentence, with four years of probation.

After this tribulation, I truly experienced what Master said,

“At a certain point in time, you will be made unable to discern clearly whether something is true or not, whether your gong exists or not, whether or not you can cultivate and make it, or whether or not there are Buddhas and if they are real.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)

Moving to Hong Kong and Joining the Mobile Truth Clarification Sites

I immigrated to Hong Kong a few years ago. I needed to work long hours. I worked from noon to ten in the evening, and this continued for more than a year and a half. I didn’t have time to do the three things, and I felt troubled. One day during Fa study, another practitioner heard about my situation and suggested that I help at the mobile truth clarification sites on my days off. The coordinator for the mobile sites added my phone number to the contact group so I could receive information. I would be able to participate five days each month and distribute materials.

This was how I once again joined the ranks of practitioners saving sentient beings. I can never thank Master enough for not giving up on me!

I thought about how the other practitioners were making the best use of their time and going out to save people every day, while I spent most of my time making money. Though I had a better income, I was losing precious time for saving people. I realized that I should get a part-time job so that I could have more time to save people. I decided to quit my job and look for a part-time job.

Just when I was about to hand in my resignation letter, my co-worker told my director that I wanted to talk to him. The director came to me. I was surprised, since I only needed to notify my department head of my resignation, not the director. I braced myself and told him that I had to quit and find a part time job. To my great surprise the director told me that the company was creating a new job and would only hire part-time workers. The hours were 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., with the same benefits as my current job. He asked if I wanted it.

I was so happy! What could be better than staying at the same company and working part-time so I wouldn’t need to find a new job? I realized that Master made this arrangement! What’s more, the new job offered a free lunch, so I could eat before getting off work and then go directly to distribute truth clarification materials. Thank you Master for this amazing arrangement, which allowed me more time to save sentient beings!

After I worked for a year on this part-time job, the director gave me a pay raise of a thousand dollars since I had more responsibilities. After two years, the company gave me a double promotion and raised my salary again. Promotions and pay raises are quite rare for part-time jobs. Some of my colleagues wondered how this could happen. I knew it was all Master’s encouragement. I needed to save more people.

Cultivating While Spreading the Truth

Distributing information about Falun Dafa at the mobile sites is a great test for my xinxing. Many people were poisoned by the CCP’s lies and did not take our materials. At first, it took four hours to distribute one bundle of Minghui Weekly. In business districts it could take several hours to distribute just sixty or seventy copies. When my human notions surfaced, I really wanted to give up and go somewhere else where people were more willing to take the newspaper. I realized it wasn’t right to seek quantity. Even if only one person took a single copy and was saved, my work was not in vain. If I wasn’t there, those dozens of people would not have an opportunity to get our materials. After I corrected my thoughts, I became calm and determined again.

After participating for several years, I also understood that the mobile truth clarification site was a place for saving sentient beings. It also allows practitioners to participate at their own convenience. I also knew Master arranges all these predestined people to come and take our materials. When we are more diligent, more predestined people will come. Through our efforts we have already formed a positive energy field, and more and more people are willing to take the materials. Some people are very supportive and encourage us to keep up our good work.

When I distribute materials, I silently recite “Remember Falun Dafa is good, Zhen-Shan-Ren Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Dafa will bring you blessings.” Sometimes people who have already walked by, return to take the materials. Every human being has a knowing side, and they know that practitioners are offering them salvation. I believe if we keep on clarifying the truth diligently and persistently, Master will strengthen us and help us to save more sentient beings.

This is my understanding at my present level. Please point out anything inadequate.

Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners!
