Why Do I Practice Falun Dafa?
(Clearwisdom.net) I'm an educator. In 2006 I began to practice Falun Dafa. From receiving the precious book Zhuan Falun till walking onto the path of cultivation, it took me 12 years. I sincerely thank all Falun Gong practitioners. They obey Master's instruction, bravely and kindly clarify the truth, save sentient beings, and bring light to this world.
Why do I practice Falun Dafa? Because Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa and can truly save sentient beings. Falun Dafa is "most profound; among all the theories in the world, it is the most intricate and extraordinary science." (official translation quoted from Lunyu, Zhuan Falun, Translated by US practitioners, 2000). How I obtained the Fa is simply a testimony to this.
As early as the end of 1994, my sister gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun, hoping that I could obtain he Fa and start cultivating. But I regarded this human world as more important than anything else and didn't take it up.
In April, 2004, I was sent to the hospital and diagnosed with nasal cancer. This was like a fatal blow to both me and my whole family. My parents, who are already in their senior years, were so worried about me that they couldn't sleep at night. Tears welled up in their eyes again and again. My husband and my daughter were also distressed and couldn't figure out what to do. As I was facing death, my sisters brought the Dafa books to me again, asking me to let go of everything and truly walk into cultivation. I was a little doubtful. I looked at them, thinking, "Can Dafa truly save my life?"
That same night, my nose was suddenly stuffed up, and I had difficulty breathing. Then I thought of benevolent Master. I put my hands together in the way of heshi and asked Master for help. After only a few seconds, my nose was no longer stuffy. Then I had to swallow. I didn't even know what happened, but all of sudden I felt very comfortable.
In fact Master had already eliminated my illness at that point, but I wasn't enlightened to it and couldn't let go of my human attachments. I continued to get chemotherapy at the hospital. After a few sessions, I totally changed: I lost all my hair and was frightful to look at. I lost my sense of smell. My sisters came to me again. They asked me why I didn't believe in the Fa, which is so good, and instead I believed in this hospital!
That night I had another dream. In my dream Master came to me. I said, "Master, I have nasal cancer." Master sighed and left. When I woke up I told my family this dream. They said, "Master does not like to hear the word, 'illness.' Master sighed because of your lack of understanding."
Persuaded by my sisters, I began to try to cultivate. However I still couldn't let go of many human attachments. I cultivated but at the same time I took medicine and went for chemotherapy. Not only was the cancer not cured, it spread. The doctors said there was no cure for it any more. I was extremely weak and I had no courage at all to continue to live.
My sisters came back again and said to my husband and my daughter, "Since the hospital could not cure her, let us take her to our place, where she can cultivate with all her heart."
I then moved to live with them. I stopped doing anything else to cure my cancer. Instead I truly began to study the Fa, practice, and purify my heart. After a couple of months, great changes happened to me. The cancer disappeared, and I had long black hair again. I'm active and filled with energy. It's Master who saved my life and gave me a second chance! My life was given by Dafa. My existence is proof that Dafa is a supernormal science. Because of this, I truly walked into Dafa and began to practice. I joined a Fa-study group and do the three things a Dafa practitioner should do to the best of my ability every day.
