New Practitioner: Falun Dafa Saved Our Family
(Clearwisdom.net) I come from the southern region of China. I recently went to Shandong Province to do some business. Somehow, I lost all my money (around 100,000 yuan) in the business venture, and my business partner also left without letting me know where he had gone. As a result, our family got into serious financial problems, and we had difficulty just getting enough food to eat. The impact on me was so severe that I started to fight with my husband almost everyday, and my physical health also began to deteriorate. I even thought of committing suicide.
At that critical moment, I ran into two kind-hearted ladies, who talked to me and persuaded me not to blame myself too much. They also told me that they were Falun Dafa practitioners. When I first heard them talk about Falun Gong, I was a little bit afraid because I didn't know the truth yet, and I was afraid that people would identify me as a practitioner, so I didn't dare listen to the ladies. They noticed my concern and said to me, "Falun Dafa practitioners follow the principles of 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' to become better citizens. Those TV programs about Falun Gong are all fake. Don't be fooled by them. You lost your money because someone cheated you. Practitioners could never do that to someone."
The ladies then gave me a set of truth clarification materials, and I took them home and started to read them over carefully. The more I read, the more convincing the information seemed to be. I went back to the two ladies, and they told me more heart-moving stories about Falun Dafa being spread all over the world. At that moment, my heart was touched and I decided that I'd like to read the Falun Dafa books. I borrowed a copy of Zhuan Falun from them and began to read it as soon as I got home. After I finished reading the book from cover to cover, I realized how wonderful Falun Dafa is. It was completely different from those lies presented on the TV shows. No wonder so many people still kept practicing Falun Dafa even though the situation was so terrible. I felt lucky that I had come across those two kind-hearted ladies that showed me the truth about Falun Dafa. My trip to Shandong Province to do my business was worthwhile after all, even though I had lost a huge sum of money. I had learned about the most precious treasure--Falun Dafa. I felt like I was the luckiest person in the world.
After I started to practice Falun Dafa, my family began to show significant changes. The family became more agreeable, and everyone felt more relaxed. My attachments to my business losses diminished, and my husband developed a new business. My physical health also improved, and both my son and I got a job. I also had fewer worries about my daughter's studies at her school.
From the depths of my heart, I want to express my gratitude to Teacher and to Falun Dafa. It was Teacher and Falun Dafa that saved our whole family. Here I would also like to urge those who are still not clear about Falun Dafa to come learn the truth as soon as possible and to not be fooled by the lies and propaganda any more. Only after we understand the truth will we be able to have a new and bright future.
