  • Distinguishing Righteous Thoughts from Competitiveness

    Arriving at the police station, my first thought was to straighten myself out, to see where the problem was and why this had happened. I found that, though I appeared to have sufficient righteous thoughts, a lot of competitiveness and human feelings had been mixed in with those thoughts. This competitiveness had caused me to miss Master's hints time and time again.
  • Remembering When Teacher Taught the Fa at the Assistants' Fa Conference in Changchun, China in 1998

    Teacher repeatedly told us to seize the time to study the Falun Dafa teachings, practise the exercises, improve our heart and use the teachings in Falun Dafa as a guide at all times. During the ten-minute break, Teacher didn't even drink any water. Instead he stood beside the podium and answered practitioners' questions with regard to their cultivation.
  • The Chinese Embassy Unreasonably Refused my Passport Renewal in Germany

    At about 11.am a male officer who I had never seen before appeared; he was not very tall and in his forties. He was holding my passport in hand and said to me: “Qi Luyi, come with me, I want to ask you something.” He took me to a meeting room next door while he was talking to me. He asked me when I came to Germany, I told him the truth. Then he asked: “Did you practise Falun Gong in China?” I replied: “yes, I did.” “Are you still practising it?”, “Yes, I am” I replied.
  • After Practising Falun Dafa, My Incurable Illness Disappeared

    In 1997, a sudden serious illness turned my life upside down. Large lumps grew all over my body. I could hardly bear the pain and itching, and could not sleep all night. My face was very swollen. A doctor diagnosed me with leukaemia, and said it was incurable and that medical treatment could only prolong my life for several years. An ordinary farmer like me could not afford the medical fees, so I gave up, and waited to die.
  • My Family's Path in Practising Falun Dafa Under the Awful Persecution in China

    Among my family members was my father, who started practising Falun Dafa at the beginning of 1996. He improved greatly in both mind and body and as a result, my mother, sister, husband, two children and I also started to practise Falun Dafa. Our whole family, including my 3-year-old child, all the way up to the 70-year-old members of the family, lived in harmony and happiness, and we forged ahead diligently on the path of improving ourselves.
  • A Young Falun Dafa Practitioner Returns to School with the Support of Fellow Practitioners

    I did not feel the atmosphere was right after I got to school. I realised what had happened when Teacher Wang asked me to have a talk with him. Teacher Wang took a firm stance and as my righteous thoughts were not strong I failed to clearly tell him about why I practise Falun Dafa and why the persecution is wrong. Teacher Wang repeatedly said, "The power is in the hands of the Communist Party. It does not allow you to practise Falun Gong, although Falun Gong is good."
  • A Falun Dafa Practitioner's Christmas Wish

    He gave a beautiful, heartfelt speech about how he learnt this year at college that we should not be afraid to open our minds to new ideas and ways of life. Every word was spoken from his heart, and I felt that everyone was listening deeply to him. Just when I was thinking about how much better an ordinary person had done than I had, at the very end of his speech, he said, "I want everyone to know that this very idea stems from my sister," and gesturing to me, he said "this is how I looked at what she got out of Falun Gong this year."
  • Whole-Heartedly Fulfilling My Responsibilities

    In January of 2004, I thought that I should go to the countryside since I had distributed materials frequently in the city. Especially in remote mountains, people did not know what Falun Gong was. I asked a practitioner to go to the remote mountains with me. We went there on a bus and walked back. That night, we walked through five villages and distributed several thousand leaflets.
  • Turkey: New Practitioners Diligently Introduce Falun Dafa and Expose the Persecution

    “You see nowadays people live very tensely due to their stressful lives and economic situations, yet you bring such good exercise which can relax and improve people’s health. Thank you very much!” I said, “Then you should thank our Master!” He said, “Please send my thanks to your Master.”
  • Learning Chinese and Reading the Chinese Version of Zhuan Falun

    He was very interested in Tai-Ji, meditation and so on and began practising these disciplines all the time. About one and half years ago he met a woman who practised Falun Gong while he was practising Tai-Ji in Malaysia. This lady told him what Falun Gong was all about and the persecution happening in China. After having listened to this lady he came to a certain understanding about Falun Gong. He realised that it is what he’d been looking for, and after a period of time, he firmly took the path of returning to his original, true self through practising Falun Gong.
  • Two Kinds of Falun Gong Practitioners

    The second group puts their own elevation and personal cultivation first. They have the attachment of getting rid of their attachments, the attachment to doing things, and have a hidden show-off mentality, zealotry, jealousy, and competitiveness. They are self-centred. On the surface, they are validating Dafa, but in essence, they are validating themselves. With no sense of security, they see the persecution of Falun Dafa as a way to establish their mighty virtue and to improve themselves.
  • Letting People Know the Correct Facts and Getting My Job Back

    I decided to go to my company and talk to them about Falun Gong and why the persecution is wrong. I approached leaders at different levels several times over a period of time and clarified the truth to them while asking them to give me back my job. However, my requests were turned down. Their reason was that anybody who had been sent to a forced labour camp and as a result of that been fired because of practising Falun Gong would have to declare his stand in front of the director of the security department.
  • Some Thoughts Evoked by A Stranger's Helpful Advice

    I suddenly realised that, while I was very happy to accept that elderly gentleman's words when he pointed out there was something wrong with my car, I haven't been so happy whenever my fellow practitioners have pointed out my shortcomings. Why do I react differently? I suppose it's because I didn't know the elderly gentleman and I want strangers to be left with a good impression of me. When my fellow practitioners have pointed out my shortcoming, however, I thought they were doing so just to pick on me, so I would always try to find excuses for myself.
  • Recollections of Teacher's Lectures in Guangzhou, China

    On the night of the 28th of December in 1994, the Guangzhou Lecture Session ended. Teacher said to us, "My visa is ready." All of us knew Teacher would travel around the world to introduce Falun Gong. We did not know when we would be able to see him in the future. During the eight days of lectures, Teacher taught us the universal law and cleansed our bodies. When it was time to say goodbye, everybody felt sad.
  • An Australian Falun Dafa Practitioner's Journey to Tanzania

    The practise site had become a landmark on scenic Ocean Drive, alongside the beautiful Indian Ocean. Even the taxi drivers asked whether we can do a Falun Gong program in their local language on the radio stations, so that they can learn about Falun Dafa while driving. When we handed out leaflets on the streets, people came up to us and said they had received our leaflets, and looked at the website. They said they couldn't believe the brutality of the persecution! Thanks to the media's continuing positive reports about the practise, Falun Dafa has become widely known.
