(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa before the persecution started in 1999. During more than 20 years of cultivation, I have been kept safe under Master Li Hongzhi’s protection. I feel that without Dafa’s guidance and Master’s protection, I wouldn’t be where I am now. 

Learning to Read by Studying Zhuan Falun 

I did not go to school and had never learned to read. One day, a friend told me about Falun Dafa and gave me the book Zhuan Falun. She said it was a great cultivation practice. When I got home, I asked my husband to teach me to read. He thought it was impossible. He said, “Such a thick book. How can I teach you to read all of this?” I asked and asked and my husband finally said, “Alright, alright. I’ll teach you.”

He taught me sentence by sentence. A month later, I suddenly saw two lines of black characters flying into my eyes. It was very strange. I didn’t know what was happening. I went home and opened Zhuan Falun. To my surprise, I could read most of the characters in it. 

After that, I went to a group Fa study where everyone took turns reading a paragraph. When it was my turn, I was able to read my paragraph correctly. Everyone was shocked because they all knew that I couldn’t read. They were amazed that I could learn to read so well in such a short time. Dafa is so extraordinary and amazing. I knew it was Dafa that gave me this wisdom.

My Bike Went Faster Than Two Police Cars

In the fall of 2000, several other practitioners and I planned to put up banners exposing the persecution of Falun Dafa in front of the city government building at 3 a.m. During the day, we received Master Li’s lecture, “Teaching the Fa at the Great Lakes Fa Conference in North America.” I carefully read through the lecture that night without missing a single character. I suddenly felt more confident and calm about putting up the banner the next morning. I woke up right at 3 a.m. and was off to the government building to meet the other practitioners.

There was no one on the street when I got there. I started to put up the banner. After failing to throw the rope high enough into the tree a couple of times, I heard a man’s voice saying, “Let’s go.” I suddenly realized that one police car was parked in front of me and another behind me. I picked up the banners and started to push my bike. I told myself, “With Master and Dafa, what is there to be afraid of?”

My bike seemed weightless, and I could pedal so fast. I looked back to see the police cars. They were chasing me but they were far behind. That was when I realized that my bike was off the ground, flying.

I remembered that I hadn’t put up the banners yet. As I was thinking that, I found myself in front of a big shopping mall. I knew a lot of people would be there that day. The banners could save more people at this location, so I went ahead and put them all up there.

The next day, a fellow practitioner told me that many people saw the banners in front of the shopping mall.

“If You Truly Practice Falun Dafa, Get into the Car”

When other practitioners and I went to the village market to tell people the truth about Falun Dafa, someone reported us to the police.

A police car arrived and parked across the street. The officers told us to get into the car. We didn’t move for over 10 minutes. They then said that, if we didn’t get into the police car, we had to get on the bus, because the bus also stopped at the police station.

As we saw the bus approaching, a white car pulled up. I waved to the driver and said, “Please help us! We practice Falun Dafa. The police across the street are trying to arrest us.” The driver said, “Falun Dafa? Do you truly practice Falun Dafa?” I said, “Yes, I truly practice it.” He said immediately, “If you truly practice (Falun Dafa), get in!” As soon as we got into the car, the bus stopped between us and the police. We got home safely.

On the way home, we all felt that Master was protecting us. Tears streamed down my face. No words could describe what I was feeling at that moment. We had such deep gratitude for our teacher, Master Li Hongzhui.

Master said, “Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

No matter what we practitioners do, it’s actually all done by Master. We just take the opportunity to cultivate and improve ourselves and fulfill our missions.
