Dafa Brought Happiness to a Family
(Clearwisdom.net) When I arrived at my new work unit, I was able to tell a very kind lady about the truth of Falun Gong and about how I was detained for practicing it. She cried after learning the truth, and withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) organizations. She also wanted to read Dafa books, so I suggested that she read Zhuan Falun.
Several days later, she told me that her mother, who suffered from depression, had started to recite "Falun Dafa is good" but always forgot part of the sentence. Later, she excitedly told me that her mother could remember the entire sentence and kept reciting it all the time. Since then she no longer wandered around aimlessly and had returned to normal. Not only that, she did not need someone to take care of her anymore. This lady said that her younger brother had also started to read Zhuan Falun. As for herself, her high blood pressure and dizziness all went away. When she threw out the statues of "Bodhisattva"and "Buddha" and the Qigong books that she used to worship, she had a dream that several snakes had left her home. She also asked for another copy of Zhuan Falun.
After some time, she told me that her mother wanted to see me, because the three of them wanted to learn the exercises. I gladly went to her home. Her mother told me that she could not remember the sentence "Falun Dafa is good" when she initially started trying to recite the words. She thought to herself, "In the past, I traveled far to get my illnesses treated. I worshiped God, Bodhisattva, and Buddha. The blessing signs were all over my house, but nothing helped. Now I want to start on a righteous path and I will not allow anything to interfere with me. I am determined to remember 'Falun Dafa is good, Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'" She then asked her son to throw the blessing signs away, along with all the other things that could cause interference. After this had been done, she had a dream: A thick snake was fighting with her, but seeing that it would be defeated, the big snake escaped. She also told me that since the day that her daughter brought home the Dafa book, she could see Falun. Because she could not read, her daughter did not give her the book, but one day, she picked up the Dafa book and said to herself, "I just want to read even though I don't recognize the characters." When she opened the book and saw the Falun emblem, she knew that she had seen Falun since that first day. She also told me that no matter what she saw, as soon as she recited "Falun Dafa is good," the bad things disappeared, while the good things remained.
This lady's younger brother told me that after reading the book, he thought that Dafa was very righteous and marvelous. He had read many books from Buddhism and various Qigong books, but he never had such feelings when he read them. The next day when he was resting after lunch, he saw a very clean person coming towards him, walking past his bed. He felt as if his whole body was cleansed. That person touched his toes. I told him that it was Teacher purifying his body. He was very happy to hear this.
Her second sister was initially against them wanting to practice Falun Gong. She said, "Nowadays Falun Gong is persecuted. You want to practice? You are looking for trouble!" This lady asked me, "How can she be saved?" I said, "You do whatever you need to do. Gradually she will see your changes. Then she will change, too." Soon after that, other family members indeed witnessed the magnificence of Dafa through her. Her youngest sister, sister-in-law, second sister, and her niece all started practicing Falun Gong.
Her mother told me that since she started practicing Falun Gong, she can now do some housework (prior to this she was often bedridden due to the effects of anti-psychotic drugs) and she no longer thought of aimlessly wandering around. Later, after she listened to Teacher's Fa lectures, she was able to pass her xinxing tests. One night, when she had just started listening to the Fa lecture, her ten-year-old granddaughter kept kicking the bed angrily and would not let her listen. No matter what she said to her granddaughter, the child would not listen. But the grandmother tolerated her behavior. The next morning, when she went to the bathroom, her granddaughter also wanted to use the toilet, and so dragged her grandmother away from the toilet. She was at odds with her the whole morning. The grandmother then left home, and her son thought that her disease had recurred and she would go wandering around, so he followed her. Later he called me. When I arrived, the grandmother told me what had happened. When her son followed her, she asked him, "Why are you following me?" Her son said, "I am afraid that you forgot to bring money to buy things." She said, "Then give me the money!" But her son had not brought any money. She said, "You are not honest. You are lying." She thought to herself, "You think I will commit suicide? No. I have Teacher!" After hearing this I told her that this was her xingxing test, which she needed to pass. I told her, "You are doing great!" Since that day, she has become more talkative and has told others to recite, "Falun Dafa is good."
The second sister used to be short-tempered. Since she started to practice Dafa and followed the principles of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance, she has become very tolerant. The youngest sister also changed. Although her financial situation was not so good, she tried not to burden her sisters. She learned how to think of others and helped her mother do the housework.
The sister-in-law has had the greatest changes. She became honest. In the past, she had never taken care of her mother-in-law, but now she cooks, washes her clothes, and does housework for her. One time she cleaned her bed and the whole room. During the 2009 spring festival, not only did she do the cleaning, but she also bought new clothes for her. When the elder sister-in-law took things from her, she did not mind. The granddaughter also became a well-behaved child and also follows Truth-Compassion-Forbearance.
Seeing how they have all changed, I am so happy for them. They are a happy family that cultivates Dafa.
