(Minghui.org) Since I began the spiritual practice of Falun Dafa, I have paid attention to studying the Fa as every cultivator knows the importance of understanding the teachings. However, memorizing it verbatim was difficult for me.

In 2012 I memorized Zhuan Falun in four months but didn’t continue as I found it very time-consuming. I knew that memorizing was a good way to study the Fa, but I couldn’t overcome my mental obstacle.

On August 1, 2019, I decided to memorize the Fa again and I asked Master for help. Initially, I memorized one sentence at a time, and then one paragraph at a time. Even so, I studied with a peaceful mind. While memorizing the Fa, I eliminated many human attachments and gradually cultivated compassion.

In less than two months, I memorized the whole book for the first time.

During this time, I understood many Fa principles. Sometimes, one sentence in Zhuan Falun would appear new to me, as if I had never read it before. Also, some phenomena that Master mentioned in the book would occur right after I memorized that paragraph.

For example, I memorized,

“In addition, elderly women will regain their menstrual period since a cultivation practice of mind and body requires menses to cultivate the body.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

My period began the next day even though I am 65. In addition, when I reached a state of tranquility while memorizing the Fa, I experienced emptiness as it is described in Zhuan Falun.

In the past, I didn’t understand the state of the universe. Through memorizing the Fa, I suddenly understood this and other principles.

I feel wonderful when I memorize the Fa. The happiest and most hopeful thing for me to do every day is memorize the Fa peacefully with my legs crossed in the full-lotus position.

I really enjoy memorizing the Fa now. It took more than a year to memorize Zhuan Falun six times, but I also read the book and Master’s recent lectures dozens of times. Through diligent Fa study, my human attachments were weakening and my compassion was increasing.

I came to understand that I maintain the best cultivation state through diligent Fa study and can therefore do the three things well. During the pandemic this year, I knew what to do to save people.

My Daughter Finally Begins Dafa Cultivation

As a Falun Dafa adherent for over 20 years, I wondered if my daughter would ever cultivate Dafa. In fact, she has very good inborn quality. When I first started to practice, she was in junior high school. When she read Zhuan Falun, she saw that all the characters in the book were red and each one was rotating. However, she couldn’t accept the Dafa principles.

Both my daughter and her husband work in a confidential department for the Chinese Communist Party. Their manager was fired from public office because he practiced Falun Dafa, which made my daughter and son-in-law too scared to learn it. My daughter even looked down on me for being steadfast in my faith. For nearly 20 years, we didn’t get along.

Last July, my daughter and her family came to visit me. I had improved in cultivation because I memorized the Fa for over a year. I now have more compassion, follow the standards of a practitioner, and care more about my relatives, instead of criticizing them like I did in the past. I look inward when I encounter problems and no longer tried to force my daughter to accept Dafa. I saw that she was gradually changing and no longer talked to me scornfully.

I know these things occurred because I developed more compassion. As Master told us, the energy field of a cultivator can correct every incorrect state. Indeed, as my compassion grows, my energy field is able to correct incorrect states. Seeing my daughter change, I sincerely thanked Master for his compassion.

About 10 days after she’d returned to my home, she suddenly wanted to know about Dafa. I gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun, which she read in three days and then read it a second time in less than three days.

The night before she left, my daughter cried and apologized for not behaving like a loving daughter and hurting us in the past.

I was moved to tears, but they were tears of joy. The cold war between my daughter and me was finally over. Thank you, Master.

My daughter asked me to load the recordings of Master’s lectures on her MP3 player. She said she would follow Dafa’s requirements to be a good person. She is very glad to now follow a belief and from now on her life will be very happy.
