An Illiterate, Elderly Woman Miraculously Reads the Book Zhuan Falun
February 11, 2004
In a village of Yinan County, a miracle happened.
Falun Dafa was introduced to this village, and many people here believed in cultivation, especially the elderly. They heard that practicing Falun Gong could make people healthy, so many of them began practicing Falun Dafa.
One woman was around 80 years old and completely illiterate. She went to the practice site every day to listen to fellow practitioners reading Falun Dafa teachings. Upon listening to such great universal principles, she regretted that she had not been able to go to school and learn to read. But she thought of a way and bought a copy of the book Zhuan Falun. Every time the others read the book, she would point to the line with her finger. She figured she would recognize the words if she did this long enough. But since she didn't know any words to begin with, she was still pointing to the 3rd line, while others were already reading the 5th line. Realizing this, she became so anxious that she broke into tears. She spoke to Teacher in her heart: "Teacher, I really want to read and understand the Falun Dafa principles." Perhaps her sincere heart moved Teacher. From then on, every time she went to the practice site to study the Fa, when others read a line, she could see that line shining on her book. She was so excited and felt so grateful toward Teacher. Soon there were no words in Zhuan Falun that she didn't know!
