I am a Falun Dafa practitioner living in Japan. Although my parents live far away in China, I often clarify the truth to them about Falun Dafa over the phone. One way that has benefited them is to recite "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good". Mother is a firm believer. Father also started to believe it and is now quietly reciting the phrases. But, the other family members have been rather dubious about the whole thing. However, a recent incident at home deeply moved them and let them feel the power of Dafa.

Father is 75 this year. Six months ago, he had a minor stroke. Three weeks ago, while preparing the field for sowing, he collapsed in the field. A neighbor found him and sent him to the district hospital. After an injection, father woke up, but his conscious state fluctuated. The doctor arranged a complete checkup for him the following Monday.

The night when Father was in hospital, I called and asked my brother to pass the phone over to father. I told him to keep reciting "Falun Dafa Hao" (Falun Dafa is good). Half stammering, he said he understood. I told mother to do the same, and father would be all right.

Two days later, the result of the examination indicated that father's condition was not that serious. However, on the third day, father passed out again. An X-ray showed that he had severe cerebral hemorrhage; the doctor said that father had only a few days to live. All the relatives came. After a family meeting, they decided to take father home, as they did not want dad to die in the hospital.

Preparations were made for the funeral. All other relatives living nearby were informed and everyone was ready for the final farewell ritual. Over the phone, I kept reminding mother that if she repeatedly recited "Falun Dafa is Good" in father's ear when he was conscious, father would have a chance.

On the first day after father came home, he rejected all forms of medication. If the medicine was forced into him, he reacted badly. So they decided to stop giving him anything altogether. On the second day after coming home, I was told that father woke up, and even ate two slices of watermelon. On the third day, with only minor help, he could even walk to the toilet by himself. After that, all the helpers left, leaving only one person attending to his needs.

Two days later, the family took father to another hospital for a checkup. The doctor said that the clot had resolved. After comparing his x-rays with the x-rays taken several days earlier, the doctor could not explain how he had recovered so quickly.

Mother happily said to me, "They all said that it must be the son in Japan praying for him for father to recover so miraculously." I said to mother, "We must thank Falun Gong. It was also because you had faith, that's why it worked. If the person concerned does not believe in it, it won't work." Father himself also indicated that Falun Dafa had saved his life.

After the incident, all our relatives were deeply touched by the power of Falun Dafa. Some of them said they would like to recite "Falun Dafa is Good" as well. Others said that if there were people to teach them, they would also like to practice Falun Gong. I hope more people will be saved through this incident.
