  • Letting Go of My Fundamental Attachments Amidst Long-term Tribulations

    I was continuously tortured both physically and mentally whilst I was being detained at the Xindian Female Forced Labour Camp in Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province of China. Such long-term suffering, however, could not change my determined heart. When I looked within throughout that experience, I also found many of my own attachments.
  • My Experiences and Understandings about Appealing at the Chinese Consulate in Edinburgh, Scotland

    One day when I was practising the Falun Gong exercises, an old Scottish man came over and said to me, "Young man, I have observed you for a few days, and I am really touched. Nowadays, there are very few young men like you. You are really brave. Carry on. What you are doing is great." When I heard this, tears streamed down my cheeks.
  • A New Falun Gong Practitioner in China Establishes Her Own Material Production Site

    I did not understand why I started to practise so late. I know now that everything happens for a reason. First, as a new practitioner, no one has been watching me; secondly, with a stable job and income, I am in good financial shape; thirdly, I have basic computer skills; and fourthly, I have a good family environment, so I have ample time and energy. Everything comes or forms for Falun Dafa. If we have the means but do not do what we should do, that will be our biggest regret. Haven't we been waiting for this day for thousands of years?
  • After Studying the Teachings of Falun Gong and Cultivating the Heart My Breast Cancer Disappears

    Before I started practising, I had breast cancer. I underwent an extensive operation for six hours at the Changgen Hospital. Like other cancer patients, I was treated with chemotherapy. I had a schedule of nine treatments. After each treatment, when I washed my hair, it would come out in handfuls. I felt sick and I was afraid. Before the operation, I bravely told my children not to worry, and that Bodhisattva would protect me and ensure my safety. However, I cried for days after I became bald.
  • A Senior Citizen: It's Wonderful to be Free of Pain

    One day, I found a pamphlet in my mailbox about Falun Gong. After reading it carefully, I was so glad to have come across this wonderful practice. I immediately contacted a local assistant, and began doing the exercises and studying the teachings on November 15, 2000. After participating in the nine-day seminar, my body went through an obvious transformation. Right now, I am able to walk confidently, and get up and down stairs with ease. After practising for half a year, the gout, which had bothered me for years, vanished without a trace. I was on a strict diet in the past, but I am now able to eat anything I wish.
  • Using the Phone to Tell the People of China that "Falun Dafa is Good"

    This desire changed a simple book-reading meeting to a time where Falun Gong practitioners would gather together to phone people in China to explain to them about Falun Gong and the persecution. Everyone agreed that it was a good idea to use the phone to call the Chinese people, police stations, forced labour camps and related authorities.
  • Understanding the Persecution from the Angle of the Law to Bring the Persecutors to Justice

    For these reasons, talking about the persecution against Falun Gong from the legal perspective becomes especially important. We should help people understand that persecuting Falun Gong violates our nation's Constitution and the law. Jiang Zemin and his followers, who controlled all of the state's resources to persecute Falun Gong, are the ones breaking the law, and the line of attack during the persecution is illegal and criminal.
  • The Great Happiness in My Life

    Eight years ago today was the greatest day of my whole life. It was the day that I was introduced to Falun Gong. On that day, I really felt I finally found what I came to this world for and that it was exactly what I wanted. During the nine days when I first watched the founder of Falun Gong’s videotaped lectures, I felt my whole world change, then came the cleansing of my body.
  • A Woman's Experiences in Practising Falun Gong

    The police tried all kinds of tricks to "transform" her, but were not successful. They were very angry and said, if she refused to write the statement, they would send her to a forced labour camp. Her boss knew that she was a nice person and rejected the police. "My employee is a good person. You cannot send her to a forced labour camp." Failing that, the police monitored her and sent her to brainwashing classes many times. It turned out that it was easier to move mountains than to move her. Whoever dealt with her found it impossible to change her.
  • The Best Way is to Change One's Self -- Experiences During the Car Tour of Scotland

    We met two mayors. One mayor opened a heavy door for us when we struggled to enter the town hall. We talked to him, thinking that he was a receptionist. Another mayor, who was attending a local meeting, rushed back to his office when he noticed us in the hallway. He came to greet us and shook our hands. It was as if we were being reunited with a family member.
  • Recollecting Miraculous Stories From Master's Lectures in Wuhan and Guangzhou

    He said "If Falun Dafa can cure my wife's illness then Teacher must be very great. How can I be left out when Teacher was to give a lecture in Guangzhou?" At that time, I only had one ticket for his wife. I didn't have a spare ticket for him. He said, "Even if I can't go in to attend the lecture, it would be my honor if I could simply see Teacher." So he insisted on going with us. After we arrived in Guangzhou, his wife and I went in to listen to the lecture. He, along with over 500 other people who didn't have tickets, sat outside the stadium to listen to Teacher's lecture, which was broadcast via loudspeakers.
  • Our Group Activity of Telephoning Falun Gong Practitioners in Beijing

    One woman hung up the phone out of fear as soon as she heard that the call was from Taiwan and that Falun Gong was mentioned. We called again and this time a gentleman answered. After he heard from us that anti-torture exhibitions are being held in many countries, that many people in Western countries know Falun Gong is being persecuted in China, and that many people support Falun Gong, he told us with joy that he is also a Falun Gong practitioner.
  • What Jiang Zemin's Stepping Down Tells Us

    We still need to further expose the persecution and rescue incarcerated fellow practitioners. More importantly, we cannot be attached to who is in power and other things of ordinary society, because our path of validating Dafa is the greatest and most solemn, and is not determined by a certain leader of state in ordinary society. We cannot rely on ordinary people even slightly.
  • Enlightenment from a Dream

    There was a thought in my mind: “The three local practitioners did not seem to participate in handing out the leaflets. I should have involved them in the activities.” I was shocked to realise that the scenes in the dream had reflected my actual situation. When I arrived at the fork of the road, I became reluctant to travel alone. When somebody guided me to resume my journey, I rejected to let go my attachment. Not to advance is to go back.
  • Only by Being Truly Selfless Can We Clear Away All Obstacles and Resolve Everything

    When facing everything, if we truly don't have any personal notions or self-interest in mind, then we are considered selfless and are assimilating to the characteristic of the cosmos, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance." Others are capable of sensing this. The things we do under such conditions will naturally have a good effect. That is indeed letting go of one's own self and being responsible for one's self and others. I deeply realised that only by being truly selfless can we be clear away obstacles and resolve everything.
