(Minghui.org) In the winter of 1996, someone talked to me about Falun Gong. Back then, I thought it sounded too mysterious and laughed at it. 

The following spring, my family started a business to hatch poultry, which required a lot of time to collect eggs and sell baby chicks, ducklings and goslings. Since 1994, I had been using the electronic thermostat I developed to control the incubation temperature of the eggs. My hatching technology in the area was the most advanced and the quality was the best too. A local bird breeder referred me to another breeder, Ju, who asked me to hatch birds for him. As such, I needed to visit Ju’s home at least two to three times a week.

The first time I went to his house, I saw various Falun Gong pictures on the walls in one of the rooms. I said to him, “Do you still believe in this?” 

He told me how good Falun Gong is and how his hypertension, which had been very serious and life-threatening, was cured within a few days of learning Falun Gong. When he said that his hypertension was cured, I was turned off because I knew that there was no way to cure hypertension. I could not listen to anything else he said.

But as I went to his house more often, I heard him saying more things about Falun Gong. When I realized that Falun Gong is a kind of qigong, I began to listen to him again. 

This was because when I’d attended the National Chicken Breeding Training Conference in Beijing back in 1988, I saw many people practicing qigong in a park. I also talked about some phenomena in qigong with the conference participants, mostly veterinarians from all over the country. We discussed that practicing qigong could make people’s bodies reach a disease-free state without medical intervention. Some people said that the first thing they would do after retirement was to practice qigong. I also had an idea: “I would practice qigong when I had the chance.”

Later, Ju’s wife told me how she accompanied him to learn Falun Gong and that she was also no longer sick any more. I was very impressed with the fact that Falun Gong is free of charge. I thought to myself, “If I can be free of disease, I’m willing to pay eight or ten thousand yuan.”

So I began to observe Ju and his family. Under the tempered glass of his dining table was a piece of paper that listed all of his morning, noon and evening medications. I sometimes joined them for lunch or dinner, so as to observe whether he took medicines or not. I saw that the two of them were both in pretty good mental and physical condition. But I still wasn’t convinced. I wondered: “How can I confirm whether he wasn’t taking medicine behind my back?”

The answer to my question came. One day I heard on the radio that there would be heavy rain all day the next day. So before dawn, I arrived at Ju’s home. I explained that I had time to come early since it was raining. I ate breakfast and lunch at his house and chatted with him all day. I saw that he indeed didn’t take any medicine. His son and daughter-in-law were not at home that day. When he took his grandson to school, I saw a layer of dust on the cap of the bottle of medicine for hypertension. 

It was still raining in the afternoon, and I stayed at his house. In the evening, we had dinner together, and I accompanied them to another practitioner’s home, where they were studying the Fa together. 

On my way home, I was finally convinced that everything Ju said about Falun Gong was true.

Through other families nearby and Ju’s son, I further confirmed that Ju’s high blood pressure was healed by learning Falun Gong. Later, I also investigated the changes people in neighboring villages experienced after practicing Falun Gong. Finally, my cousin also recommended Falun Gong to me. After three months of careful and detailed investigation and analysis, I decided to practice Falun Gong myself.

In China, many people now stay away from Falun Gong due to the communist regime’s demonizing propaganda. I want to say that everyone has the ability to think for themselves, and it is only right to judge right and wrong by the standard of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. I hope that more people in the world will understand the facts about Falun Gong and benefit from it accordinly.
