(Minghui.org) Greetings, Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!

I live in Vietnam and I started to practice Falun Dafa in 2014.

Master Li Hongzhi introduced Falun Dafa to the world on May 13, 1992. A former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) head used the regime’s resources to launch the brutal persecution against Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999. It mobilized its propaganda machines to slander and frame Falun Dafa throughout China and the world. Falun Dafa was not introduced in Vietnam until 2000, when I was fifty years old.

I was an atheist and not interested in any belief or religion. So I only politely listened when people talked about Falun Dafa.

Several years later a former university classmate gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun. Either the friend didn’t fully explain what Falun Dafa was or perhaps it wasn’t yet time for me to practice—I wasn’t interested. One year later in May 2014, I invited that friend and several other former classmates to my home for a get-together. I immediately noticed my friend’s positive changes. He looked very healthy with rosy skin. He used to be miserable and survived on various medications and treatments. I thought “Falun Dafa is so good—I want to practice!” As soon as I had this thought, I was blessed by Dafa.

I began suffering from insomnia when I was 20 years old. Sometimes I felt so bad that I’d rather die than live. However, as soon as I decided to practice Falun Dafa, I slept very soundly that night. I slept like a baby after suffering from insomnia for nearly 30 years. I felt it was miraculous, and I started to practice diligently.

Finding My Way

I stumbled a lot in cultivation at the beginning. I didn’t have a deep understanding of the Fa. There weren’t any veteran practitioners in my area to point out my mistakes. I had to enlighten by myself.

I used to have more than a dozen illnesses. When I began practicing, I didn’t think of having my illnesses healed or whether Dafa could restore my health, but the diseases gradually disappeared.

Soon after I began practicing, I felt something clogged in my throat. I worried whether it was a tumor. I had chronic sore throat for decades and was on powerful antibiotics. I went to the hospital for a check up, but the doctor said my throat was fine. Weeks passed, but I still felt a lump in my throat. I made an appointment for another examination. The doctor said the same thing: “Everything is normal.” This time I enlightened that Master was purifying my body and pushing out the illness that had plagued me for decades. I didn’t go to the doctor again.

I retired in 2011 and became a tour guide. It was a busy job and I had to travel constantly. I used to have cardiovascular disease, vertigo, nocturia caused by kidney deficiency, cold hands and feet, and joint pain caused by old injuries. I didn’t stop taking medications after I started practicing Falun Dafa due to my poor enlightenment quality. But when I sometimes forgot to take the medicines, I felt fine.

With the improvement of my xinxing, I realized that Master was helping me bit by bit and dissolving the karma for me. My health gradually improved. I later stopped taking medications. When I was 13, I suffered from heart disease, and the doctor suggested I avoid any strenuous labor. But now I could climb to the summit of a tall mountain. When I went to China in 2016 and climbed the Great Wall, I surpassed everyone in the 1000-meter climb. When I arrived at the top of the platform, I recited “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

I realize that Master not only purified my body but also constantly helped me. I’d like to share some examples.

Master Always Looks after Me

One day I took 40 foreign tourists to the train station. We planned to go to the south by train, but I didn’t calculate the time well. It was peak time and we arrived at the train station 30 minutes late. The train from the north to the south only stopped for a few minutes at the station. I was extremely worried. The consequence would be severe if the tourists missed the train, and as the tour guide I would take full responsibility. I asked Master for help. A miracle happened: as soon as we entered the station, the train was waiting for our group. I realized that Master was helping me. I urged the tourists to board the train immediately.

Another time, an English tourist accidentally poured a glass of boiling water on me. He was very worried. I told him not to worry. I changed my clothes in the washroom and kept asking Master to help me. Several hours later the swollen and red spots from the scald disappeared. The tourist was amazed. I took this opportunity to tell him and other tourists about Falun Dafa and how it’s persecuted in China.

One day I took a group of tourists to visit a village deep in the mountains. As soon as we walked to a field, the sky suddenly became cloudy and dark. The tourists didn’t bring umbrellas or rain coats. The dark clouds intensified and thunder rolled. However, the rain didn’t come down until we entered a house. It didn’t stop for quite a while. I understood that Master had helped us.

Although Falun Dafa was introduced in Vietnam several years later than in China, it was not persecuted here. This is an advantage for Vietnamese practitioners, and they could easily get truth-clarification materials. Zhuan Falun and Master’s other articles are translated and distributed to practitioners quickly. They can also get the latest audio and video materials from the Minghui, Epoch Times, and NTDTV websites in the Vietnamese language.

When I began to practice, I visited those websites out of curiosity. The more I read and listened, the more diligent and firm I became in cultivation. I realized that I have to make more efforts to raise awareness when the CCP suppresses Falun Gong more.

Because of my foreign language skills, I composed emails and sent links to the books Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and How The Specter of Communism is Ruling Our World, as well as other articles and web links about how the CCP persecutes Dafa to Chinese people and politicians, famous people, world organizations and people around the world. When I receive hostile replies, I provide them with more evidence and information.

I’ve begun listening to Minghui Radio in Vietnamese and read articles on the website every day. I also listen to and read the previously published articles, especially practitioners’ recollections of Master in the early days. Often I weep when I read about how Master overcame tremendous difficulties to teach Dafa in China.

I understand now that Master’s law bodies are always with us. They know our every thought and every action and compassionately encourage us, remind us, and give us hints. As long as we respect Master and the Fa, and maintain righteous thoughts, we can assist Master in the Fa-rectification period. Zhuan Falun is what I have been searching for! It is so precious and contains everything.

No words can express my gratitude to Master! Every time I see Master’s photo, I remind myself to cultivate more diligently. I will cultivate in Dafa firmly and follow Master to return to my original home. This is my pledge.

Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!
