My 80-Year-Old Mother Attains the Fa
(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, the Jiang regime's propaganda reported the "transformation" of Wang Bo, a former student of the Central School of Music, and his family members. The report slandered Dafa. It said that Wang gave up his studies because of practicing Falun Gong and decided to go back to school again after he had allegedly "transformed." He cooperated with police to help arrest his father, also a practitioner. He took a picture in the prison showing his whole family wearing prison uniforms, seemingly very happy. This is indeed ironic and pitiful.
I have practiced Falun Gong since 1997 and experienced great changes both physically and mentally. I have always worked hard and was rehired by my previous employer three years after I retired.
I would like to share my 80-year-old mother's experience to show how good Falun Dafa is. In August 2000, my mother developed a sudden backache. Within several days, she became bedridden. She could only lie down on her right side and was unable to turn over on her bed. She felt pain in her whole body, even with breathing, so she could not take deep breaths. The doctor said that there was no specific treatment for her and prescribed some painkillers, which had no effect on her pain. She then developed a fever. This poor 80-year-old elderly woman was moaning and crying out from the pain. She often complained that living was worse than dying for her. She could not tolerate the pain and wanted to die quickly. My husband said that my mother might be half paralyzed, even if she were to recover. At one point, my mother thought she might be dying and asked me to lie by her side while she told me what to do after her death.
Three days later, in the afternoon, I thought while sewing a death hat for my mother that back pain should not cause a person to die. A fever of unknown origin for an 80-year-old person was really frightening, though. My parents had a bad relationship. My father did not care about us. My mother suffered her whole life and also hated her life. She just had a few good days recently. How could they pass so quickly? Then a thought came to my mind, "How pitiful it is for a life to die without attaining the Fa."
I then said to my mother, "Mom, look how good I am since I have been practicing Falun Gong. Many of my illnesses are gone. You have also read Zhuan Falun (she did not want to practice at that time). Do you believe what our Teacher says?"
My mother said, "Yes."
"Then would you like to practice with me?"
"If you want to practice, you must listen to the Teacher and do not live your life with hatred. My father passed away nearly 30 years ago. What is the use of you still hating him? Our teacher said that love and hatred among people are all caused by relationships in previous lifetimes. My father did not care about us. Maybe he should not have cared for us. We should read Teacher's book often. I will read to you now. I can teach you the exercises after you can get up from the bed."
My mother said, "Yes."
I started to read Zhuan Falun to her and did not pay attention to her motions in bed.
After about 20 minutes, I said, "Let's take a break."
She told me that she wanted to turn over in the bed. She tried to turn over and she actually could do it by herself. She felt only heat in her back, not pain. She tried to take a breath and found it was not so painful. She could breathe more easily. After several deep breaths, she felt much more comfortable. It was just this quick and miraculous. It was Teacher who saved my mother from the hands of death. My happiness was indescribable.
My mother said, "Maybe Teacher is here."
I said, "It is not maybe. Teacher is indeed here. As long as you practice, Teacher is by your side."
Then I helped my mother get out of her bed and walk a few steps. She was okay. The next day, I did not have to accompany her, and she could take care of herself. Soon, I taught her to study the Fa and to practice the exercises. In this way, my mother began the path of cultivation practice.
