  • My humble experience on the path of cultivation

    At the beginning I was not confident in writing an experience sharing article because I felt that I still need a lot of improvement in cultivation and I was not good enough to write a paper. Yet thinking the other way round, writing my experience is a huge cultivation opportunity that I should cherish and is a place where I can find genuine improvement in my cultivation.
  • Nothing Surpasses Cultivating in Falun Dafa

    I came to understand that Falun Dafa is not for people to keep fit and cure illnesses, but is a true and high level cultivation way and the first step is that the Teacher purifies practitioners' bodies. I also realized that Zhuan Falun is a priceless book. Once I understood the preciousness of Falun Dafa, I grew determined to live by the principle Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, be a good person and return to my original true self.
  • Master Gave Us a Second Life

    A friend told me that many people were learning Falun Gong and that if a person practised it with a true heart, it even could cure cancer. I was very glad to hear that. I went to the local practice site that evening. There were quite a lot of people at that site. They were kind and took care of me. They told me about the beauty of Falun Dafa and I was moved after listening to them. I decided to learn Falun Dafa.
  • Obtaining the Fa through Master’s Arrangement

    As I work in a leisure centre I always wanted to open up a Falun Gong class there. I always see how many people come to do Yoga and Pilates and think, “They should try Falun Gong instead” So after a lot of thinking and with Master’s help I managed to arrange a meeting with the head manager. I felt a huge righteous force present with me.
  • My Understanding Regarding the Issue of Praising Fellow Practitioners

    I felt somewhat uneasy when a practitioner recently commented that I had a clear understanding of the Fa principles. Today as we were preparing to study the Fa, the practitioner said, “I don't know why I can study the Fa better with you than with other practitioners.” I was just getting ready to read but became distracted when I heard her comments.
  • Overcoming the affection among family members by believing in Master and the Fa

    Because of laying down my human emotion, I have become calm and of fortitude. This state of mine has given my husband great confidence and encouragement. Now I can, in a dignified manner, not only study the Fa and do the exercises at home, but also openly make phone calls to mainland China clarifying the truth. And my family environmental has been finally rectified.
  • Learning to Be Truly Compassionate

    I came to understand many principles of the Fa and learned that to cultivate, aside from being a good person, I have to hold myself to a much higher standard. I should treat everybody with respect, care and compassion.
  • Regaining Sight after Thirty-one Years of Blindness in My Left Eye

    I wanted to be a good person, a true cultivator. From that moment, I started practising Falun Dafa and started a new life. Soon after, I started going to the practice site, and the pain from my illnesses were relieved, then disappeared. I have enjoyed a healthy body and mind since then.
  • Falun Dafa Teaches Me to Be Broadminded, Unselfish and to Take Self-Interest Lightly

    For me, cultivation practice in Falun Dafa has been a process of change in my notions. Prior to practising, I was shrewd and savvy. I did not think there was anything wrong with this and, instead, thought I was being smart. Since becoming a cultivator, I have looked at things from a completely different perspective.
  • Cultivating Whilst Promoting Shen Yun is a Special Privilege

    Cultivation is the key to success, our Master has taught us many times. So I try to follow this in my work for Dafa projects. There is not only the practical arrangements but the coordination and cultivation issues to bear in mind especially. In recent years I have worked on Shen Yun, becoming more involved as time has progressed.
  • Cultivation Is Very Serious

    Greetings, fellow practitioners. Recently, a number of practitioners in our region were taken advantage of by the old forces and were illegally arrested. I was very sad, but not because of human sentiments. After cultivating for so many years, and coming to the final stage of Fa-rectification, I hoped that fellow practitioners would no longer be taken advantage of by the old forces.
  • Dafa Connected the Pieces of My Life and Made Clear the Path Ahead

    Ms. Cornelia Ritter grew up in Switzerland. She was fascinated by Asian culture and always searched for a way to elevate her soul. She became a maths teacher and taught for 13 years. During this time, her aspiration for Buddhahood grew ever stronger, so she started to travel around Europe to places where the saints were born , hoping to find the Way.
  • Believing in Master and the Fa Can Change Our Conventional Mentalities

    In the past I didn't completely believe in Master and the Fa. Though I knew this mentality was not right, deep down I felt that way. I had read many times in Minghui Weekly and in experience sharing articles about practitioners asking Master for help when they were in dangerous situations, yet I was at a stage where I only read about others' experiences and did not have a deeper understanding or think much about it.
  • Looking Inward as a Whole Body is Helpful in Rescuing Fellow Practitioners

    Many instances of persecution have taken place in our area. Many fellow practitioners have been arrested, and many of us have tried a variety of ways to rescue them. How can we rescue our fellow practitioners efficiently? From three nearby instances, I've understood that only if we all look inward, eliminate gaps between each other, and elevate as a whole can we send forth strong righteous thoughts to effectively disintegrate the evil and rescue our fellow practitioners.
  • A Falun Gong Practitioner Wins Respect and Admiration at Work

    I am an educator. Since I started practising Falun Gong, I have conducted myself according to the Falun Gong cultivation principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I have since identified many of my bad thoughts and overcome them. I continue to validate that Falun Gong is good by what I say and do.
