(Minghui.org) Ding Kai-ting is an attending physician in the Department of Hepatobiliary and Gastroenterology in Taiwan. At an age of 39, he is a young and promising doctor who has been practicing medicine for more than ten years and is said to be conscientious and attentive in his work.

He began practicing Falun Dafa nearly 20 years ago and says that Falun Dafa is not a belief but real science.


From a Science Fan to a Cultivator

Life sciences became popular in Taiwan in the 1990s. Ding Kai-ting was also fascinated and read books about the natural sciences. “I remember that DNA decoding was being talked about all over the world at that time. I was deeply interested in this and wanted to apply to the Department of Life Sciences to learn DNA decoding,” he recalled. “I later realised that my studies would be more complete if I combined them with human research, so I decided to pursue a career as a doctor.”

Medical school coursework is quite heavy. He had to study for hours and had difficulty sleeping. His father recommended he try the Falun Dafa Nine Day Class nearby to overcome his insomnia.

One night after he finished the nine-day class, he was under serious academic pressure. He remembered the Falun Dafa exercises he had just learned so he meditated for half an hour before going to bed. That night, he was able to relax and quickly fell asleep—this time he did not toss and turn. He said practicing Falun Dafa not only ended his insomnia but also “helps me concentrate, and improves my physical strength. My inner state of mind is peaceful and stable,” he said.

He had a wonderful experience when he practiced. He was meditating and sitting with both legs crossed. When the pain became intense he told himself that he should do as Master taught in Zhuan Falun, “When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun) Amazingly, the severe pain disappeared.

From this experience Ding realised that Zhuan Falun is not an ordinary book, but a Dafa (Great Way) that leads people to return to their true nature.

Amazing Scenes

He returned home after doing the exercises with other practitioners for the first time, took a shower, and lay down. “While I was half asleep and half awake, I saw red and blue lights that were constantly crisscrossing and shining, a little higher between my eyebrows, like a curtain about to open,” he recalled. “Then I saw a golden scene rising in front of my eyes. It looked like the rotation of the Milky Way in the universe.”

After his third eye opened, Ding Kai-ting also saw the Falun (Law Wheel) spinning in front of him. “I remember when I was half asleep and half awake, I saw an orange law wheel spinning in front of my eyes. Although it was not very near, I could see it clearly. Another time, I saw myself reading Zhuan Falun in my sleep. Zhuan Falun in other dimensions is not as small as it is in the human world. The background is golden. Each character in the book can change into a Law Wheel and it can be opened and you can see rows of books of scripture inside it. You can open these books and read them. It was magical, special, and spectacular,” Ding added.

Through repeatedly studying the Fa and cultivating his xinxing, Ding realised that Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance are the best things in life and are also the realms he wants to achieve.

A Cultivator Should Be Altruistic

Ding Kai-ting faced the first test of his character not long after he started practicing. Someone was needed to serve as the chief academic officer in the medical class, and the school’s Chinese medicine club also needed a leader who could coordinate the free clinic team. Serving as the chief academic officer would allow him to get to know many teachers, which was very helpful for future doctors. However, serving as a coordinator of a free clinic team that provides free medical services in rural areas is a tiring job. Not only do you have to drive around and see to many detailed tasks, but it does not directly help your future career development.

He thought of the principles taught in Zhuan Falun that one should consider others before oneself, so he agreed to coordinate the free clinic team, a task no one else wanted.

“At that time, there was a section exam every two weeks in the medical curriculum. If you failed the exam, you would have to repeat the grade. There was no time for me to rest between the two section exams. I also had to quickly arrange trips for the free clinic team. All this was a big challenge for my willpower. Looking back now, it was a very valuable experience for me to refine my will and seize the time to study the Fa and practice the exercises,” Ding recalled.


Falun Dafa Is Real Science

Ding Kai-ting became a medical doctor. However, no matter how advanced medical technology may appear to be, it has its limitations. He often saw the playing out of the cycle of birth, aging, illness, and death in the hospital. He wished he could have more opportunities to let patients know that Falun Dafa is extraordinary and a real science.

Ding said that Western medicine deals with physical problems, while Chinese medicine deals with the qi in the meridians. Only if there is healthy qi in the meridians can a person be healthy. The five elements of traditional Chinese medicine correspond to benevolence, justice, propriety, wisdom, and trust. If you want your body to be full of healthy qi, you must also behave and think correctly, in line with traditional culture and the five traditional Chinese medicine elements: benevolence, justice, propriety, wisdom, and trust. Whoever can do that will not become ill.

He considers the patients’ status and ability to accept what he has to say to let them know Falun Dafa is the most convenient method of cultivation in the world today. He said, “Practicing Falun Dafa can open meridians and acupuncture points. If you continue to practice, the meridians will become wider and eventually connect, filling the whole body with healthy energy. The practitioner’s mind will also improve. In the process, one becomes increasingly aligned with the characteristics of the universe, Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and one will form a circle of kindness between oneself and others.

“I hope more people can learn about Falun Dafa. It contains so many treasures and truths,” Ding said.
