A testimony from a practitioner:
Rong Zhen Sun
I had been working for over 50 years and used to work until very late in the night. I didn’t have enough rest and my work pressure was very heavy. It really made me feel exhausted. I always had insomnia and headaches.
I was fortunate to attend the Guang Huan Mi Zong Health Dharma class. I could sleep well at night after I learned how to practice the Health Dharma. My headache was gone. My physical body was relaxed.
I would really like to thank Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi for his blessing and help. I beg Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi to bless me so that I don’t have to suffer from insomnia anymore. I wish Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi could guide me on how to devote the rest of my life to help other sentient beings so that I would get more good merits. Thank you Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi!
