(Minghui.org) I started to have skin problems and rashes on my face when in middle school. My skin was very itchy and whenever I scratched at it, it would hurt even more and many white flakes would fall from my face. If there were people around me, they would either laugh at me or regard it as unsightly and walk away. I felt very embarrassed because of my skin infection, and people even called me names. I was embarrassed to be in a crowd of people and did not like going outside. In the winter, I hid myself under a hat, and in the summer I often had no choice but to show my face.

I have been to many large and small hospitals, and sought out remedies to cure my skin problems, but everything always ended up in vain.

I accidentally stumbled upon a brand of face oil that was quite inexpensive. It softened the white flakes on my face, and when I applied it, my face looked less flaky. So over the previous nineteen years I was very dependent on this face oil.

When the surge of interest in qigong came, many people started to practice after hearing that it could cure illnesses. Many of my friends and family recommended all sorts of qigong for me to practice. For eight years, I tried numerous qigong practices, but they did not help with my skin problems. I was on the brink of giving up, thinking that there was no hope at all.

One autumn while I was collecting cottonwood buds, a classmate from a neighboring village came and said, “Let me give you a book, this book is very powerful.” I accepted the book, which was the book Zhuan Falun. Since I had already lost all hope in qigong however, I only accepted the book out of politeness and placed it in my bag filled with cotton.

When I got home, I read through a couple of pages and left it on top of my cabinet. I read only a couple of pages if I had time, and soon six months had passed. I took out Zhuan Falun again and realized that I was reading more pages than usual. My reading seemed very different this time and I wanted to keep on reading. Why was that so? I realized that the three characters “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” were truly very immense! These three characters embody everything in the universe and everything could be solved by abiding by these three characters!

I had never seen any principles like these in other qigong practices, and these principles directed me onto a path to walk forward and overcome all obstacles! That was my initial understanding after reading Zhuan Falun for the first time.

I started to read Zhuan Falun regularly, and about two weeks later, I felt a change in my face. The affected areas on my face have slowly faded. I was very happy and pondered whether or not this qigong was truly effective. I continued reading it for a month, and at this point, my face was no longer as white as before. The flakes on my face had become smaller and thinner. I started to think that this qigong could really cure my skin problems. From then on, I stopped applying the face oil. I also went to look for the classmate of mine who gave me the book Zhuan Falun. He taught me how to do the five sets of exercises and gave me the book The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection. I was reading Zhuan Falun and practicing the five exercises at the same time. In three months, my skin infection that had bothered me for 19 years completely disappeared! My skin now looks normal and healthy.

I have experienced Master’s boundless compassion and Dafa’s power. I am determined to cultivate till the very end and do the three things well!
