  • A Chinese Lady's Experience of Coming to Practise Falun Gong in Austria

    After reading Zhuan Falun quietly from beginning to end, I suddenly felt I was in another world. Many questions I had always held, for which I could not find the answers were suddenly lying right before me. I finally understood that the fundamental principles of this cosmos are Zhen, Shan, Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance). They are the highest attainment of the law of the Universe and the most fundamental law. These principles, Zhen, Shan, Ren are the criteria by which the cosmos judges good and bad. I came to see that to understand what is good and what is bad you just have to use these principles as a guide.
  • Falun Dafa Saved My Life from Alcohol Addiction

    Over the last 45 years I have been an alcoholic, in order to stop me from drinking, my family members begged me; my friends tried their best to persuade me; my superior at work harshly criticised me; I repeatedly made resolutions to stop drinking when I was sober. None of this helped, and I continued to drink. People who knew me used to say, "If he can stop drinking, then I can stop eating." I was so dependent on alcohol that nothing could help me. Alcohol was a demon that I couldn't get rid of. It haunted me for most of my life been something that I couldn't shake no matter what.
  • Advancing Through Studying and Cultivating with Others

    Then, I saw her entire body, all the cells, and her thoughts all focused on the word "eliminated." And the sound of the word "eliminated" broke through the roof reaching the sky. I was enthralled by her righteous thoughts, and my mind was a total blank. Suddenly, paper on the machine fed through smoothly the very moment she recited the second "eliminated." Wow! It really expanded my mind, and I really believe the effect of righteous thoughts now.
  • Step Out of the Tribulation

    I don't know why I had always felt I had encountered more tribulations than others. I went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong four times, was sentenced to forced labour once, detained twice, and was abducted during the Chinese Communist Party's 16th National Congress. Though each time I broke out with the power of righteous thoughts, the tribulations kept coming, one after another.
  • An Elderly Practitioners Experience In Learning to Use the Computer

    I asked a fellow practitioner to teach me how to use the computer and the printer. Surprisingly, after only four lessons, I was able to surf the web, read articles and download and print materials. Afterwards, through practice and with the help of the fellow practitioner, I learnt to do paper-loading, speed printing, toner adding, and fixing a clogged printing head. From then on, I was able to print pamphlets containing Falun Dafa facts, Minghui Weekly, Teacher's lectures, and even the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Watching flyers print out page after page, my tears kept falling. I never imagined that I would learn how to use the computer.
  • A Fellow Practitioner Awakens and Holds Up a Piece of the Sky

    Finally, I decided to cross the creek. The fellow practitioner desperately needed to read Teacher's article. Through reading this article perhaps the fellow practitioner could really step forward and help in activities to let more people know the truth. So in my mind I recited Teacher's article, "Tathagata," and dashed into the icy cold water on my motorcycle. My motorcycle's engine stopped in the middle of the water and I fell into the water with my motorcycle. I crossed the creek and went to the practitioner's home. He looked at my wet clothes with surprise and asked why I still came when I had to cross the water. I told him, "Teacher's new article arrived. Even if there were a bigger obstacle I would still deliver it."
  • The Wonder of Falun Dafa: My Grandson's Fractured Bone Heals Instantly

    The orthopaedist was very surprised after he looked at the film. He said that he had done many orthopaedic jobs in his life and he had never seen such a severe injury healed automatically. And it was hard to believe that it didn't cause any pain or swelling, but the iron-clad evidence was right there. The head of the orthopaedics department then said: "Since every thing is normal, there is no need to take any medicine or to stay in the hospital. You can just go home."
  • Falun Gong Leads to Improvements In Health

    Ailian had been ill for 18 years before she began to practise Falun Dafa. After the persecution started in 1999, however, she stopped practising because of fear. When the painful conditions recurred, she felt hopeless. "Accidentally" Ailian watched a videotape revealing the truth about Faun Gong and the persecution allowing her to see through the evil Communist Party lies. Once again she started to study Zhuan Falun. The magnificence of Falun Dafa was manifested again.
  • Making a Clean Break from Superficiality

    I have realised that I have to break away from the surface level which means that I have to do whatever I am doing not simply because it is my duty but from a righteous understanding, participating in the projects for the right reason. This is often easy to say but may be difficult to put into practice. From my own experience, I know that it is easy to slide into a downward spiral and to simply continue the same way we did before the start of our cultivation. Only when we understand the principles taught in Falun Gong can we do everything from the heart and behave as true practitioners.
  • Removing My Fundamental Attachments

    With the help of an acquaintance of mine, I was able to recognise what I had done especially to my child and the burden I had put on her. She does not know anything about life yet and is longing for security, a role model, someone that tells her what is right from wrong. I recognised that I had to take charge and at last become a role model for her. I asked myself, what kind of role model had I been up to now and realised that I should not be surprised at all when Gloria cried a lot and was restless. She was my mirror image and showed me my innermost feelings, my restlessness, my chaos!
  • An Touching Experience I Encountered Outside the Chinese Embassy in Frankfurt

    Soon after I arrived a young couple stopped and started looking at the pictures. After reading the articles exposing the cruel persecution of Falun Gong practitioners currently taking place in China, the young man, with his heavy eyebrows raised high and his eyes wide open, simply asked: “Do you need any help or money?” I explained, “What I am doing has nothing to do with money or donations. I simply want to highlight the atrocities that the Chinese Communist Party has committed against those who practice Falun Gong, something which has been hidden from the people of China.”
  • An Elderly Woman's Cancer Disappears after She Started to Sincerely Recite, "Falun Dafa is Good"

    The practitioner told her, "As long as you sincerely recite, 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good,' your health will get better." After hearing that, Ms. Chen sincerely recited these words every night. She did this for three days. On the morning of the third day, she felt a burning object in her throat roll slowly downward. Her appetite improved and she felt like eating. In another week, all of her illness symptoms disappeared. This story caused quite a stir in her local area. Those people who knew about her cancer, in particular, exclaimed that Falun Dafa is indeed amazing.
  • A Mysterious and Debilitating Skin Disease Disappears Upon Practising Falun Gong

    Ms. Wang lives north of the Experimental Middle School in the Wenchang District of Laizhou City in Shangdong Province of China. She is 57 years old and suffered from an unknown skin disease for more than three years. Her skin was itchy and painful, which when scratched oozed a yellow fluid. Over the past three years, she tried both Western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine. After spending lots of money and taking an enormous amount of pills, she saw no improvement. On the contrary, the infected areas grew larger and larger and covered almost the entire lower half of her body. She could not eat or sleep well due to her suffering.
  • A European Practitioner's Experiences and Impressions During Her Visit to New York

    For fourteen days I did nothing else than tell people about the persecution, advised them to read the Falun Gong books and to practise the Falun Gong exercises. I saw for the first time our esteemed Master and was able to listen to His lecture on Falun Dafa’s principles in person. Not only was this very moving but I also met many practitioners from all over the world with whom I could share experiences about my cultivation with. As I remember, the entire stay was a precious period for me. Only, that day in New York was something else and not in the least pleasant.
  • My Memories of Gao Rongrong

    Whilst browsing the Internet, I was shocked at seeing the photos of Gao Rongrong’s disfigurement. When I learnt that she had managed to escape from the hospital I felt happy for her as I believed that she would not be subjected to further persecution. I later learnt that she was caught again but I did not expect that the sad news of her death would come so quickly after her escape. It seems as if it were just yesterday when we were together studying the Falun Gong teachings and practising the exercises.
