(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in March 1998 and will be 70 this year, but I feel much younger. I am healthy and strong with rosy cheeks. It is Dafa and its principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance that has turned my life around!

I used to suffer from many illnesses. Walking to the field used to be very exhausting. I would collapse on the ground when I got there and have to lie down for a long time before I could stand up. I used to have diabetes, Meniere's syndrome, meningitis, stomach problems, and many other ailments. I saw doctors of both Western and Chinese medicine, but no one could cure me.

My husband had an extramarital affair and deserted me and our two teenagers. Troubles rained down on me all at once. I felt helpless.

On March 6, 1998, I heard that a video lecture series about Falun Dafa was being played in the village. I was so excited. Since that day, I have walked on the path of Dafa cultivation. Soon after I started practicing, all of my illnesses disappeared, and I became full of energy to do my work. I could easily carry a 100-pound bag, whereas it was absolutely impossible in the past.

I couldn’t read much because I’d had little education. But I really wanted to read the Dafa books, so I asked Master Li Hongzhi to give me wisdom. A miracle happened. In just over half a year later, I could read the main text, Zhuan Falun.

Through studying the Fa, I realized that the illnesses and difficulties in my life were all caused by karma accumulated in my previous lives. Whatever karma I’d created had to be eliminated. I was determined that no matter how difficult it was, I would continue to cultivate to the end. I was not afraid of hardship and would be willing to pay my debts.

Saving Sentient Beings While Being Persecuted

Since the persecution of Falun Dafa started on July 20, 1999, I have been illegally arrested, imprisoned, and harassed, and my home has been ransacked frequently. In an attempt to avoid the persecution, I left my hometown. I first worked as a babysitter and then as a nanny to make ends meet. No matter what I did, Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance always guided my life.

I was arrested after agents from the local 610 Office and the State Security Bureau looked for me everywhere. I was once arrested at the home of someone who was ill and had hired me as a nanny. The patient's daughter-in-law cried and didn't want them to take me away. An officer at the police department remarked, “Your employer spoke highly of you and really respects you.”

“That is because my Master requires us to be good people at all times,” I said.

I was held in a detention center for 15 days. After I got out, I continued to do the three things that practitioners are supposed to do. Come rain or shine, I was happy to go out and clarify the truth and help Master save sentient beings every day.

My son didn’t want me to be a nanny anymore, so I took clarifying the truth as my full-time job. For nearly 10 years, I've ridden my electric tricycle to markets and along the streets and lanes, posting and distributing information to help people gain a better understanding of Falun Dafa so that they can make the right decision and quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

I have bought three new electric tricycles for this sole purpose over the years. I'm very happy with what I have been doing and sing “Falun Dafa Is Good” along the way. Every day, I wake up at 3 a.m. to do the exercises and send forth righteous thoughts. I go out to clarify the truth in the morning and come back to send righteous thoughts at noon. I study the Fa and send righteous thoughts in the afternoon, and sometimes I read one more lecture of Zhuan Falun or do the sitting meditation again at night. My days are very productive!

Whenever someone reported me to the police, I would send righteous thoughts to clean up the evil beings behind them and ask Master to protect me. I would hold the thought: “Master is the supreme Buddha in the universe. You can't harm Master, and you can't harm me!”

In many cases, the danger would disappear.

Because I didn’t know how to write, I couldn't record the names of those who wanted to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. If I didn't write them down in time, I could forget. So I asked Master to pair me with a practitioner who could write. Soon this came to fruition, and we could clarify the truth and distribute materials together to save people.

During the outbreak of the Wuhan virus, we continued to go out to tell people the truth. During that time, perhaps out of self-protection most people were willing to accept the truth and quit the CCP.

Looking Inward

When things didn’t go well with clarifying the truth, or when I experienced sickness karma, I sent righteous thoughts and looked inward. There was a period of time when I hurt all over, and I couldn't find the cause.

A practitioner came to visit me when I was lying in bed watching Master's lecture videos. She said in surprise, “Do you know that higher beings in the heavens kneel down to listen to Master's Fa teachings?”

That embarrassed me. I quickly jumped up out of bed and said, “How disrespectful I was to listen to Master's teachings lying down. Master, I was wrong. I want to listen to your lectures in an upright manner!”

The pain in my body disappeared soon after I corrected myself.

I didn't feel well after I returned from the market one time. I knew something was wrong, so I immediately looked inward. I found that I was angry when someone didn't want the materials that I offered them. They only wanted to take amulets. I said angrily “I won't give you the amulets if you don’t take the materials.” I knew I was wrong and should be compassionate.

After the incident, I said to Master, “Master, I was wrong. I was not kind. Even if he didn't want the materials and only accepted the amulets, he was still a great person because he wanted something inscribed with ‘Falun Dafa is good’ on it. I will correct my mistakes and improve myself.”

Master said, “...the entire cultivation process for a practitioner is one of constantly giving up human attachments.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

Sometimes, I didn't want to go out when the weather was bad or my children wanted to visit. Whenever this happened, I would suffer physical discomfort. When I looked inward, I found attachments to selfishness and affection for my children.

Master has made great sacrifices for us to continue to help save people. Thinking of that, I would hurry out to distribute truth-clarification materials, and I immediately improved.

In addition to handing out materials, I helped other practitioners because I had an electric bicycle. I thought to myself, “I don’t know much about technology and I can’t do certain things, but I can help practitioners distribute more materials.” Therefore, I am on call no matter what time practitioners ask me to help.

I know that I need to study the Fa more, as my understanding is limited. I have many attachments and human notions that are yet to be removed. However, I will be strict with myself, work hard, and cultivate diligently to improve my xinxing. I will seize the time to help Master save more people and fulfill my historic mission!
