Stories from China: "It Is Really Extraordinary that Your Teacher Teaches You To Be Like This"
"It is really extraordinary that your Teacher teaches you to be like this"
This autumn, all traffic passing nearby had to detour along a country road through a small village because of road construction. It was a dirt road, so it was damaged by the heavy traffic. It thus became very difficult for the local people to transport the produce they harvested to the village. The village residents were very worried. Seeing this, some local Falun Dafa practitioners decided to repair the road themselves.
A local resident said, "I was so touched to see you all, even the young and the old, come to repair the road. It is really extraordinary that your Teacher teaches you to be like this." She then brought some water for the practitioners to drink. Another resident said, "I will join you. We will repair the road together."
When more residents passed by, many said, "After all, Falun Gong is good!" A resident said, "Only Falun Gong can do something good for the people. Still, Jiang Zemin wants to arrest them."
"Falun Dafa is so magnificent! I feel much better now"
In 2003, when one customer came in, it looked like she was feeling very bad. I asked, "Are you all right? Do you feel something wrong physically?" She nodded. I then clarified the truth to her. I told her Jiang persecuted Falun Gong and Jiang made up lies to defame Falun Gong. I also told her that the so-called "self-immolation" incident was faked.
As soon as I finished talking, the woman suddenly felt much better. She was surprised and impressed: "Everything you said is right. Falun Gong is so great! My body feels much better now."
The change in an elderly man in China's Northeast
An elderly man in a village in northeast China was very against Dafa and sometimes even cursed it because he had been deceived by the poisonous propaganda on TV. He erased truth-clarification phrases wherever he saw them posted. His wife used to practice Falun Gong, but stopped out of fear after the persecution started. His wife became severely ill, and did not improve after seeking everywhere for a cure. One Dafa practitioner suggested that she continue studying the Fa and doing the exercises. She said she could not because of the pressure from her family.
The practitioner then went to talk with her husband. At the beginning, he was furious. Later, he changed his attitude when the practitioner talked to him with compassion and dignity. The man said the practitioner's words and actions moved him. Finally, he came to know the truth and agreed to support his wife's continued practice. Still, he was not very convinced: "Anyway, I cannot afford to cure her illness; nor can she endure any longer. She can practice a few days and see how things go."
It turned out that his wife's health quickly recovered, and she no longer needed a walking stick. She could even walk to the market. Her husband was impressed. How come so many medications had no effect, but several days of practice worked?
The practitioner who had spoken to him earlier explained, "If you listen to our Teacher's lecture tapes, you will understand why, and you will also benefit from it."
Now the husband also practices. He said, "Falun Dafa is really great. Everything in it is to teach people to do good deeds. This does make sense. It is quite opposite to what is said on TV. Jiang Zemin has fabricated a lot of lies. He is really bad. I was so scared of the persecution that I even burned the books before. I did so many things disrespectful to Dafa, yet Teacher still takes care of me. No matter what attitudes I had toward practitioners, they were so patient telling me what it was all about. Now I have benefited from Dafa. I am so fortunate to know the truth!"
