My illnesses disappear

I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1994. I had numerous illnesses before: a chronic cough, infections in both ears, swelling of the neck, and hyperplasia of the knees. In 1977 I suffered side effects from a high fever while giving birth. Numbness of my entire body and pain made me consider suicide several times. I tried just about every available treatment, from doctors to special healing recipes and Qigong practices, but they could not completely cure my diseases. I was fortunate to attend Teacher's class in Zhengzhou City in 1994. Teacher personally purified every practitioner who attended the class. My mental and physical health took a decisive turn for the better, and all my ailments went away soon after. From that point on everything worked out well. I went to group Fa study and exercise practice daily, and my work and household chores were managed in good order. I only needed to sleep for about five hours but felt lively and almost weightless. My family and colleagues all sensed my transformation.

Pure compassion shocks and frightens the evil

Jiang's regime started the nationwide persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. How could a practitioner who benefited so much from Dafa ignore it-- Twice I went to appeal in Beijing. With the power of Dafa and Teacher's blessing, I never wavered in my faith in Dafa and in Teacher in front of the evil, regardless of the tricks and tactics they tried on me. I firmly believed it is never wrong to practice "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." I was never afraid in front of the police.

One day in July 2003, someone reported me to the police while I was distributing fact- clarification flyers. The police interrogated me with different tactics, but I refused to cooperate with them and calmly told them the facts about Falun Gong. When they asked my name, I simply replied, "Falun Dafa Disciple." I continued sending forth righteous thoughts and asked Teacher to reinforce and strengthen my resolve. After five hours of interrogation by four policemen, they found out nothing from me.

In the evening they sent me to a detention center. In the detention center I joyfully told the facts about Falun Gong to every inmate in the cell. They told me that it seemed strange that I was so worry free while they felt each day in the detention center was like a year. The detention center deputy asked, "How can you be released without telling us your identity--" I smiled and told them, "I will leave here after all of you understand the facts." The detention center deputies all laughed.

I truly experienced the power of Dafa as well as the blessing and protection of Teacher. Out of 50 people in the cell, only 2 or 3 of them did not accept the facts and interfered with my practice. But they were soon transferred to another cell. The police station twice sent someone to ask me whether I had thought it over. I told them, "I already told you, my real identity is a practitioner with resolute faith in Dafa. The righteous task that I am doing is to tell everyone the facts about Falun Dafa." The deputy jokingly said, "You treated me as a friend yet you won't tell me your name." I smiled and replied, "I will tell you after I leave the detention center." He nodded agreeably. The next morning the deputy called for the "Dafa practitioner" to gather personal belongings and prepare to be released. Several inmates came to me to say goodbye, "You must be extra careful after getting out. We all believe Falun Dafa is good."

After 13 days, I walked out of the detention center with righteous thoughts and rejoined the Fa rectification effort. Even though I still fall short of the standards set by Teacher and other diligent practitioners, I will do better and fulfill the goal of a qualified Dafa practitioner during the Fa rectification period.

Please allow me to solemnly use Teacher's poem "Hurry Up and Tell Them" for mutual encouragement:

"As Dafa disciples tell people the facts,

It's like sharp swords shooting out together from their mouths,

Shredding apart the rotten demons' lies.

Lose no time and save them, hurry up and tell them."

The above is my personal understanding. Please kindly point out any deficiency or lack of understanding.
