A Long Ride that Ended with Finding Falun Dafa
The story of Fan Tangyu (27) is one that many seekers of higher spiritual truths can identify with. For Fan, finding the teaching and self-cultivation practice of Falun Dafa became the end of his seeking and the beginning of his cultivation.
Since childhood Fan was inclined to explore disciplines like qigong and other metaphysical studies in the search of the meaning of life and answers to many other questions. Over a long time, however, this exploration produced unsatisfactory results.
This changed when his path crossed with the teachings of Falun Dafa while he was traveling several countries in Europe. After he read the main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun, he exclaimed the same sentence that many readers of the book have before: “This is what I have been seeking all my life!”
Combination of Curiosity and an Inquisitive Mind
Fan majored in science and engineering while attending universities in Taiwan and Germany. With this background of knowledge, he has a very inquisitive mind that questions many established theories like Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Fan explained “I’ve always been curious about the origin of mankind. I studied the history of the earth and various religions for years but I couldn’t find an answer until I read Zhuan Falun. Master Li made everything so clear in the very first lecture,”
As soon as Tangyu started walking the path of a Falun Dafa practitioner, he started noticing gradual changes in his life. His health improved radically, and the numerous illnesses he had long been medicated on disappeared.
Fan also found how much of a profound impact the application of Falun Gong’s principles had on other areas of his life, such letting go of attachments, improving his character by assimilating to Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance, and becoming morally responsible by holding himself to high standards as a practitioner.
Falun Dafa Improves Health and Environment
As he continued to practice Falun Dafa more openly and diligently, Fan also experienced changes in his environment, such as with his family members and community. He helped his family members to understand that Falun Dafa is good by clarifying the truth about its persecution in China. He also helped many of his compatriots to quit the Chinese Communist Party by explaining many of its crimes.
Since the beginning of his journey as practitioner, Fan has always felt heartfelt gratitude toward Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, for all the miracles he experienced since he started practicing. Tangyu continues to immerse himself in studying Zhuan Falun, by reading at least one of its nine lectures a day, and gradually matures more as a practitioner in the process.
