(Minghui.org) My granddaughter Le Le is eight years old. She started cultivating Falun Dafa last September and has been cultivating for six months. I would like to share Le Le’s cultivation story.
Le Le’s father did not want Le Le to cultivate, so she did not have a good cultivation environment at home. However, Le Le did not give up on cultivation and silently recited: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day. She also abided by the principles of Dafa to become a better person at school.
Le Le is a hardworking student and tries her best in each subject at school. She has always been very attentive during math class and solves each mathematical problem carefully. As a result, she always gets full marks on her tests and mid-term exams. Her math teacher was very proud and always praised her. In English, Le Le’s grade this semester improved from "satisfactory" to "excellent," and she is often praised for her essays. She has also excelled in Chinese poetry and recently won a prize for being an outstanding broadcaster. Le Le also won second place in a national Chinese poetry competition, an honorary award in youth calligraphy, and many other prizes from teachers at her school.
All of these awards this semester would not have been possible if it hadn’t been for cultivation. All of the honors and awards Le Le earned were more than what she’d received over the past two years. She was very strict with herself and even arranged her time wisely during holidays. It was because Le Le cultivated and practiced Dafa that Master made it possible for her to achieve so many things.
Le Le also required herself to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to become a better person. Le Le once kindly reminded a classmate not to get mad. Le Le told the girl that when one loses one’s temper, the individual affects everyone around them. Her classmate gladly accepted what Le Le said and has not lost her temper since.
Le Le ran for the school committee recently and was surprised at how many people voted for her. She never quarrels with her classmates, because in her words: “When someone treats me badly, they will lose de, or virtue, and I do not wish to return that virtue.”
Le Le gets along very well with her two-year-old brother. If her brother hits her, she knows not to hit back, although it could hurt a lot.
“...you did not fight back when hit or talk back when cursed at.” (Fa-Teaching Given at the Conference in Sydney)
Because she was abiding by what Master said, Le Le’s parents were quite happy with her.
Le Le recites Lunyu every day. She said, “I had a hard time falling asleep in the past and it took me a long time to fall asleep. However, after reciting Lunyu every night, I fell asleep much faster.” Her sinusitis and other abnormalities also disappeared.
Le Le has very good enlightenment quality. Her mother had toothache one time, and Le Le said, “Why don’t you sincerely recite ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’? It is truly miraculous.” Le Le’s mom has told me from time to time that Le Le has great enlightenment quality since she is able to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I told my daughter that this is genuine cultivation.
"Solid CultivationStudy the Fa and gain the Fa,Focus on how you study and cultivate,Let each and every thing be measured against the Fa.Only then, with that,is it actually cultivation"(Hong Yin, Translation Version A)
Seeing Le Le abiding in the Fa and genuinely cultivating, I feel compelled to do even better as a veteran practitioner who has been cultivating for 20 years!
