  • 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.
  • Letting Go of Selfishness and Becoming Healthy and Happy

    I work in an administrative position, and I conduct myself according to Dafa's requirements. People here are very sophisticated, so I cannot slack off a bit; otherwise it would create obstacles for them to understand the truth. Over the years, my coworkers have come to respect me for who I am.
  • The Path of Validating the Fa in Literature and Artwork

    I have worked in the field of literature and art all my life. After the persecution of Falun Gong started, I was imprisoned and forced into homelessness to avoid further persecution. After I resumed my job, I was anti-social for a while until I enlightened that Dafa is a great law that is not restricted to any forms. My cultivation path has now become broader.
  • Due to Teacher's Protection, I Remained Safe and Sound in a Serious Bus Explosion

    I noticed that there were many people on the bus. Suddenly I saw white smoke coming from the back of the vehicle. Without realizing what it was, almost simultaneously, I heard a very loud bang which could be heard for a long distance. The body of the bus was blown away, and there was thick smoke in the shape of a mushroom cloud that formed in the air. The windows and doors flew out, and glass shattered and was flying in all directions.
  • Cultivating Away Attachments and Unconditionally Assisting Fellow Practitioners

    I am 60 years old this year. Before beginning Falun Dafa cultivation practice, I suffered from stomach ulcers, various aches and pains, and a multitude of other illnesses. I started cultivating Dafa in 1996. After studying the Fa at an exercise site for the first time, I distantly felt a big Falun rotating. I knew Master was adjusting my body, and from then on, I understood that this was no ordinary qigong.
  • What Should We Do If People Are Not Convinced? Only Human Hearts Will Become Tired

    When trying to save sentient beings, we often come across stubborn people. They understand many things, but most of their understandings are based on the notions of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) culture. If we argue with them, they express their own views, and then we try to convince them and refute their arguments. We often have our line of reasoning when we clarify the truth and always follow that line.
  • Teacher Saved Me When I Was On the Verge of Death

    I bought a copy of of the book Zhuan Falun on the fourth day and eagerly read the book within three days. During those three days, tears ran constantly. This is a book that can save lives. I spoke to Teacher's photo, “Teacher, I would like you to arrange everything in my future for me. I will set the principles of 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' as my standard and cultivate to the end.”
  • Looking Inward Helps to Remove Barriers

    Practitioners understand the need to cooperate with each other. However, our thinking and actions sometimes prevent us from doing so, but we may not aware of them because we do not look inward. One day while studying the Fa with a fellow practitioner, I realized that whenever our thoughts fail to align with the Fa, we create a barrier that prevents us from cooperating well.
  • I Am the Beijing Practitioner Master Protected and Mentioned in Zhuan Falun

    My wife and I have asked many people to quit the CCP but we still have a long way to go to catch up with other practitioners who are doing well in this regard. We will study the Fa more, study the Fa well, look inwards and waste no time in letting people know the facts of Falun Gong and helping them withdraw from the CCP. We have to save more sentient beings and play the role a veteran practitioner should. We are very grateful to Master and also want to thank fellow practitioners.
  • Moldovan Judge: Falun Dafa Brings Happiness to My Entire Family

    I was born in the Republic of Moldova. In the first 33 years of my life I started a family and achieved many goals of an ordinary human being. For me, life has been good and I have a good job―I have served as a judge for the past seven years. However, before I started practising Falun Dafa, I always thought that something was missing. I saw how easily close friends or relatives became enemies in court, and I wondered about the real purpose of life and work, and the real purpose of living on Earth.
  • A Sharing on Promoting Shen Yun

    The two months of promoting Shen Yun in New York was a priceless experience for the Greater New York area practitioners. I feel very fortunate to have been part of the team, aiding Master in Fa-rectification. When I first went out to put up the posters, I was surprised that every shop we went to took our materials and they knew about Shen Yun. I feel that Shen Yun has been rooted in every corner of society. At one school we went to, we asked the porter at the gate if he would allow us to put up a poster. When we asked if he had heard of Shen Yun, he told us that he had always wanted to see the performance, but missed it every time.
