Japan: New Practitioners Gather for Group Study and Experience Sharing (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, there have been more and more new Falun Gong practitioners and new practice sites set up in Hiroshima Prefecture. On December 6, 2010, practitioners held a year-end gathering. Thirty-six Japanese practitioners shared their cultivation experiences.
Falun Gong practitioners read Zhuan Falun in Japanese.
A 60-year-old woman told how she had rheumatoid arthritis for many years. After practicing Falun Gong, her illness was gone. She also reads Zhuan Falun every day to her elderly mother, who could not get up from bed. Her mother now has much more energy.
A 28-year-old woman, who used to work in a daycare but had to quit the job due to severe illness, related, "Though my whole body was aching, I knew this was true cultivation when I read Zhuan Falun. After practicing Falun Gong, I became healthy. The doctors thought it was unbelievable."
An 83-year-old woman shared, "My daughter-in-law is 35 years old. When the two of us were in the kitchen, she never talked to me. I felt sorrow every day. But after practicing Falun Gong, I became tolerant and happy. I came to think of things from her standpoint and became considerate of others."
A new practitioner in her 60s said, "I did not have any illness. I started practicing Falun Gong just because I was interested in it. Now when I feel anxious, I become serene after breathing deeply. It is fully due to practicing Falun Gong."
Another woman in her 60s, who started practicing Falun Gong two years ago, said, "I had diabetes and almost lost my eyesight. I had to have surgery. Now my eyesight is 1.0. I was moved by a fellow practitioner who has outstanding character. I decided to start practicing Falun Gong after she recommended it to me for the third time."
A 50-year-old practitioner who has a restaurant business said, "This practice system is very good for my health. My wife has practiced it for two years. I had heart disease, irregular heartbeat, migraines, dizziness, and finally, a brain tumor. The doctors said it would be difficult to have surgery as my brain tumor was located inside my ear. I could not work and just lay in bed. But I could get up from bed after practicing Falun Gong for one month. I felt my body becoming healthier every day. All my illnesses are now gone. I am very healthy now."
The practitioners participating the gathering were encouraged by the experience sharing and resolved to move forward diligently.
