(Minghui.org) I am 68 years old. Since I was young, I have always sought to find the meaning of life. I read many books from various sects of Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, and theology. My friends and I also discussed such topics. Even so, I failed to discover a satisfactory answer.

One day in 2003, a colleague called me and told me about a flyer on the Internet. She said it was about a Chinese meditation practice that was similar to what I was interested in. The flyer also mentioned that many people in China are persecuted because they practice its principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

I felt something was guiding me to look for more information about this meditation practice. The flyer mentioned a website called Yuanming. I visited the website and immediately felt a strong energy radiating from it. So I began to read Zhuan Falun and other lectures on the website.

I spent several days reading Zhuan Falun. Immediately, I knew that this book had the answers to everything I had been seeking for so long. I had finally found my master: Master Li Hongzhi!

Next, I learned the exercises from online videos. I continued to read all the posted lectures. I have practiced Falun Dafa since then.

One particular experience stands out in my mind: my first significant karma elimination. One morning, when getting up for work, I felt very dizzy. I could neither stand nor open my eyes. I immediately lay back down in bed. But I found that laying down was also extremely uncomfortable, so I was forced to sit up. Despite the discomfort, I remained calm, understanding that it was Master who was eliminating karma for me.

My family members were worried and wanted to send me to the hospital, but I convinced them I was perfectly fine and that there was no need to go see a doctor.

These struggles lasted for three full days and nights. The fourth morning, my breathing became uncontrollably rapid. Nevertheless, I remained calm. Soon after, I sensed an explosion inside me. The dizziness that had been discomforting me for multiple days disappeared, and I found that I was able to get out of bed. Immediately, I knew Master had eliminated much of my karma for me. I had witnessed Master's and Dafa's power firsthand. I have never doubted Master.

I have been reading Master's Dafa and practicing it in my daily life. I have also tried to introduce Falun Dafa to people around me. When more people took up the practice, we organized an exercise site in the area. Later, through the Italian Falun Dafa Association, I met more practitioners and participated in many local and international activities.

Over the years, I have gone through many hardships. When facing these tests and tribulations, I always thought that they occur for a reason–namely that Master is helping me improve in my cultivation. These thoughts give me the strength to overcome any difficulties that arise.

I am grateful for Master's mercy! I vow to continue following Dafa and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
