Forever Grateful to Falun Dafa and Master Li

Feb. 2, 2024 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Hebei Province, China

(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa at the end of 1996. Since I had never been to school, my husband bought me a tape recorder to listen to the lectures by Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa. The more I listened, the better regard I had for Dafa, so I wanted to let all my relatives and neighbors know about its benefits. As time passed, people gathered in my home to study the teachings and do the exercises together. Our group practice site has been active for over 20 years. 

Learning to Read the Dafa Book in Three Months

In the early days, when I heard that many people in a neighboring village were practicing Falun Dafa, I also went to their group study and experience sharing. At first, all I could do was hold the book Zhuan Falun in my hands and listen to others read. 

I thought to myself, “It’s not good enough to just listen to others read; I should learn how to read the book myself.” So I asked my daughter and son to teach me. I started by learning one character a day, making sure that I could read it, memorize it, and write it by myself.

I was able to read all of Zhuan Falun in just three months! It was really a miracle. I am elderly, and it would be almost impossible even for a young person to do this in such a short time. 

Eliminating Karma by Improving My Xinxing

On May 14 last year, I went to visit another practitioner, Jie, to discuss cell phone security. I suggested that we not talk about anything related to cultivation practice on the phone. I also told her that if I needed to contact her, I would come to see her in person.

Jie said she understood, but she nonetheless said something negative about it. I was not disturbed and, since we had finished talking, I decided to leave. As I left, however, she slammed the door behind me. Again, I wasn’t bothered at all and went home. 

What surprised me was that a hard lump I’d had in my abdomen for over 10 years disappeared that day. I have never had any pain or discomfort since then, even when I eat cold food. I realized that Master Li had removed that chunk of karma from me because I had cultivated well that day by maintaining my xinxing during a conflict. 

Gratitude from My Neighbors and Relatives

On May 13 last year, I made some sticky yellow rice cakes to celebrate Master’s birthday. In our local area, we often give our neighbors a bowl of such rice cake for festive celebrations. o

After I finished cooking, I took a bowl of freshly-made rice cake to a neighbor’s and said, “Here is some rice cake to celebrate. Today is the birthday of Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa.”

“Oh, how nice! Thank you, Master Li!” the wife said. I could tell that the family was sincerely grateful to Master.

I then went to my elder sister’t house. Her husband was also home. “Here is some rice cake for you. Today is Master Li’s birthday.” I said to them.

As soon as I finished, my brother-in-law said loudly, “Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is good!”

One day, I bumped into a man in his 70s in my village. He said, “I know you always send greetings to your master on the Mid-Autumn Festival. Please also send my greetings to Master Li. I wish him a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!”

He is in very good health and often helps out at the small store his daughter-in-law runs. His whole family knows the truth about Dafa and often recites, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Their family business does very well. They understand that Dafa has brought them blessings.

Zhang in my village also knows the real story of Dafa and is very supportive of practitioners. When she learned that we always send greetings to Master on the Mid-Autumn Festival, she said to me, “Please send greetings to Master Li on my behalf! I wish him a very happy Mid-Autumn Festival!”
