Experiencing Incredible Improvements and Saving People under Teacher's Protection and Compassion
I. Obtaining Dafa
I am almost sixty years old, but others all say that I seem as if I am in my forties, for there are very few wrinkles on my face and my body is very strong. However, eight years ago I was not the person I am today.
In the summer of 1996, I broke my leg. The doctor said, "Your tendon has been damaged and we need to put pins in your leg to fix it." I was scared to death at the thought. That very evening, I saw many people practicing Falun Gong along the riverbank. I was inspired to try it too and see if my injury could be healed.
I saw that the practice site was covered with a large field of red light. Several days later, I saw a chubby baby boy with a fair complexion coming out of my forehead when I was falling asleep. He was very lovely and pure. Due to my damaged leg, I could not sit with my crossed legs to practice the sitting meditation. Fellow practitioners encouraged me to try anyway and I agreed. Then, I saw Teacher's law body before my very eyes teaching me how to do the meditation exercise, "Strengthening Supernormal Abilities." How excited I was! At that very moment, I was able to sit with crossed legs. A few days later, my leg had recovered completely. From then on, I persisted in practicing the exercises no matter what the weather was, windy or raining. Once in a while I felt lazy and did not want to practice. At those times, I heard a voice urging me, "Aren't you going to practice the exercises?" Then, I would instantly get up and practice.
Many miracles have happened to me since learning Dafa. Once when I was unable to unlock a door, I thought of Teacher for help. Then I unlocked the door using another key. When reading Zhuan Falun, I saw that the characters in the book were piled up one on top of each other. In recent years, I have seen that the entire book of Zhuan Falun changed its form into one of ancient times, where the characters are arranged from top to bottom. Moreover, all the characters are shining brightly. These kinds of miracles are too numerous to mention, but they encouraged my further practice in Falun Dafa.
II. Validating Dafa after the Persecution Began
On the third day after the persecution of Falun Gong was declared (on July 20, 1999), I went to the government in Hubei Province to appeal. There were several hundred people already there, including old people, children, students, teachers and government cadres. At midnight, more than thirty large vans and dozens of policemen arrived to forcibly disperse the crowd. They beat and kicked practitioners and pushed them into the vans. I wanted to get on board a van. A policeman said to me, "Do you know where this van will go? You'd better go home." Indeed, it was Teacher who was giving me a hint by using the policeman's mouth, but I didn't understand it then. I was desperate to board a van and I did. Upon arriving at the Yangzi River Bridge in Wuchang, the van got a flat tire. The police could do nothing but send us to the local police station. The local police interrogated us on arrival. I said to the young man interrogating me, "You must remember that Falun Gong is good, and read the Falun Gong books." He said he would remember. On the next afternoon, the police station officials tried to make us watch a television program slandering Dafa and we all refused. At six o'clock that evening, we were released.
Later, an unexpected thing happened in my family. One of my family members fell ill, and I moved to the countryside for more than two years to care for him. I didn't return home until 2001. In the countryside, I continued studying Falun Dafa, practicing the exercises, sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the truth. Villagers in that area all saw how healthy I was and that I could take care of another person. Therefore, they all believed in the goodness of Falun Dafa.
After coming home in 2001, I found that my sons, as well as my daughters-in-law, were opposed to my practicing Falun Dafa. Only my daughter joined me to practice. The leader of our work unit asked me not to go to Beijing to appeal. I replied, "I have already gone. You know how well I work and that every year I am praised for my good performance." Unexpectedly, the leader said to me, "As long as you think it is right, you can do what you want. We have no objection." As time passed, my sons observed my health getting better and better. In addition, I have been continuously clarifying the truth to them. Now, they have changed their attitudes toward Dafa.
III. Clarifying the Truth
In 2001, Teacher published one new article after another, asking us to do well on the three things. Thus, I have been studying Dafa with a calm heart, listening to Dafa lectures, and sending forth righteous thoughts at the beginning of each hour. I have never missed a day. Seeing that we didn't have enough Dafa truth-clarification materials, I used my own money to buy a printer to set up a small materials production site. No matter whether it is day or night, no matter whether it is in the extremely cold winter or the hot summer, I always go out to distribute Dafa materials, sometimes with my daughter. Over several years, I have handed out several tens of thousands of sets of Dafa materials. Teacher's compassionate support has enabled everything to go smoothly and I have not been in any danger.
Once, I was preparing to distribute truth-clarifying materials in front of an apartment building when someone came up to me. I said to him, "I am looking for so-and-so." He told me that the person lived on the fourth floor. Then, I successfully went upstairs to hand out materials there.
On the train back to my old home, I talked to a person sitting opposite me. Later, that person said to me, "I am wondering why I feel so comfortable and energized when talking with you. Is there something special about you?" I told him with a smile, "I am a practitioner of Falun Dafa."
When posting truth-clarifying flyers on the street, my daughter said to me, "You are really bold. There are so many people around." I said, "I make them unable to see me."
Another time, I went directly into an office of a work unit. I put my folded flyers on a desk and was ready to leave when I felt something wasn't quite right. I then said to a person in the office, "You are the boss, please have a look at these. These are Falun Gong materials. Please remember that Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance are good." He looked at me and said, "OK, thanks." I said again, "After you have finished reading, please hand the materials to others so that they can read them too." He said again, "OK, thanks." My daughter said, "Mom, as soon as you speak, people are compelled to listen to you." Within these recent years, whenever I meet someone, I do my best to let him know the truth. Very good results were achieved and I have never met anyone opposing Dafa.
When preparing Dafa materials, sometimes I am busy until one or two o'clock in the morning, but I still feel energetic the next day. In recent years, we paid for Dafa materials from our hearts, using my own money, my daughter's salary, and money from selling our house.
In September of 2004, after Teacher's new article was published ("Let Go of Human Attachments and Save the World's People"), I was so excited that I cried twice. I thought that my enlightenment quality was poor and that I must make better progress. Hence, I went out every day to clarify the truth to people face to face. No matter who I meet, I never waste an opportunity. Recently, I feel that the progress of Fa-rectification is noticeably speeding up. Many people, including old people and children, are looking for me to learn Falun Dafa.
