(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Singapore gathered in front of the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay performing arts center on January 21, 2024, to wish Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, a happy Chinese New Year. Practitioners shared their experiences and expressed their gratitude to Master.

Practitioners wish Master Li a happy Chinese New Year.

Peaceful Mind After Practicing Dafa

Young practitioner Tingting started practicing Dafa in March 2023. Her parents started practicing Dafa in China in 1995. She was young at the time and did not join them to practice, though she knew that Dafa was good.

She witnessed many amazing experiences that her parents had during their cultivation. She had some health issues last March and thought she should try the practice.

After practicing Dafa, Tingting said she has noticed some differences. “I feel that there are some changes in my character. I used to have a hot temper and strong personality, because of my environment. After learning Dafa, I take these things lightly and feel more peaceful,” she said.

She gave an example that previously she would ask others to finish a task right away. She is now more understanding and can say, “Okay, take your time.”

Recovering His Health After Practicing Dafa for Two Weeks

Qinglei, who works in the IT industry, has lived in Singapore for 26 years. He once dreamed of obtaining financial freedom and so he became interested in investing. He started practicing Falun Dafa in November 2016.

“It seems that people who are destined to connect with Dafa, no matter what profession they are struggling in, will eventually find themselves on the path of cultivation,” Qinglei said with emotion. He said that because he was studying the stock market at that time, he gradually came into contact with the many dark aspects of China’s politics and economy.

He later watched some videos and was curious about Falun Dafa. His wife’s health issues also motivated him to learn about Falun Dafa and read the Falun Dafa books.

He said that when he initially read Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, he pondered what he had read and found that everything made sense and all the questions that arose for him during reading were answered well. Qinglei thus started practicing Falun Dafa.

He stated that after practicing he understood better the distinction between kindness and evil, and he had a clear goal in life.

His father was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago. Qinglei could not go back to China and his father could not go to Singapore, so he advised his father to listen to the audio recordings of Master Li’s lectures and taught his father the exercises every morning remotely. “Two weeks later, my father went to a hospital for further diagnosis and was told that his cancer was gone,” Qinglei said. “Two weeks. I was stunned, though I thought it would work. But recovering in two weeks is very quick.”

Keeping Righteous in the Financial Sector

Simon started practicing Dafa in 1995 and works in the financial sector. He said a heart issue he had was completely gone after practicing Dafa. He is happy and illness free.

Simon follows the Falun Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a better person, and it reminds him to maintain his righteousness while working in the financial sector.

Simon studied science and engineering, and once had a so-called “scientific” and skeptical attitude toward Dafa, but after truly understanding the meaning of Dafa, he realized that Dafa is a true science.

Simon said he hoped that people who had no knowledge of Falun Dafa would read the book Zhuan Falun, find it on the Internet, or talk to a Falun Dafa practitioner around them to learn about it in person. Don’t just listen to the media’s propaganda. Only after you understand it yourself, will you know what it is and why people of every ethnicity in more than 100 countries around the world are practicing it.

Simon said he hopes to “have courage and righteous thoughts in the New Year, do the three things well, and live up to Master’s compassion and hard work. I wish Master a happy New Year!”

Gratitude to Master

Tingting said she hopes she can study the Fa more seriously, practice more diligently, and strictly demand herself to get rid of her attachments in the New Year.

Qinglei also hopes that more people can calmly think about what life is about and find the right direction.

Qinglei said he was truly grateful for Master’s compassionate salvation. “I am really grateful. There are no words to describe this feeling except for gratitude. I truly could never repay Master.”

Tingting said sincerely, “Thank you, Master, for giving me a second life. I will work hard.”
