Seventy-year-old Woman Busy with Saving Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) My sister-in-law started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. Although she is already 70 years old now, she looks like she's in her 50s. Since studying Zhuan Falun, she has set strict demands on herself in cultivation. She reads two chapters of Zhuan Falun without interruption each day and finds the time to study other Fa teachings, sends forth righteous thoughts on schedule, and takes every opportunity to clarify the truth to people face to face. Here I'll share some of my sister-in-law's miraculous experiences of when she has clarified the truth.
Right after the Chinese New Year, I heard that my sister-in-law had pain in her loins. I decided to visit her. When I got there, she had just come back from clarifying the truth. She told me her loins hurt so much. She could not bend and pick anything up. However, when she went out to clarify the truth to people, the pain suddenly disappeared. During our conversation I asked her how she has been managing with clarifying the truth. She told me she had already persuaded 30,000 people to make the "three withdrawals" [withdrawal from the Chinese Communist Party, and its affiliated organizations, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers] and passed out hundreds of thousands of Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials. Several years ago, traveling by bus with other practitioners, my sister-in-law went to a market to hand out truth-clarification materials and persuade people to make the three withdrawals. Every day she persuaded many people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. When she had free time, she always went to different places including the city, the country, streets and lanes. She never missed an opportunity to save those with predestined relationships with her. My sister-in-law also clarified the truth to children. Before school was over, she first sent forth righteous thoughts and waited in front of the school gate. When children were leaving for home; she met them and passed out truth-clarification materials and told them "Dafa Hao!" She helped them withdraw from the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers. After learning the truth, all the children were happy and shouted, "Thank you, Grandma!" But she always told them they should thank Teacher Li. After that, when children saw her, they always shouted, "Falun Gong Grandma is here!" and helped her passed out truth-clarification materials.
After learning the truth, many people helped her pass out truth-clarification materials and persuaded people to make the three withdrawals. Regardless of the heat or the cold, she would continue without interruption. She always carries with her a box of truth-clarification materials. She never has fear and always passes them out very quickly. No matter whom she meets: teachers, students, workers or policeman, she just clarifies the truth and is always safe.
My sister-in-law also told me about several miraculous stories that happened to her. For instance, once she rode her bike along a straight road and clarified the truth to some people working on the road. Later, it was getting dark and she got lost. Right at this time someone asked her where she wanted to go. She replied, "I have to go back home, I live in town." He said: "You're going in the wrong direction, it is about 20 miles from the town." She turned back and thought; "Teacher, I am lost." In an instant she suddenly realized that she was in front of her home all of a sudden. She wondered why. Then she realized that Teacher had sent her back.
Another story happened on a hot summer's day. She went out by bicycle to pass out truth-clarification materials and clarify the truth. Suddenly, it started to rain heavily. She thought, when Teacher taught the Fa it rained as well, but Teacher never got wet in the rain. She thought that she was one of Teacher's students and should not get wet either. When she arrived home her clothes were still dry and she realized Teacher had sheltered her from the storm.
Another day, she clarified the truth to several farmers. One of them said: "You are right, I believe it, it's just the long drought, and we farmers need water. It would be better if the divine could help us and make it rain." My sister-in-law replied, "Tomorrow it will rain." He did not believe her at first, but later that night it rained heavily. Since then people have thanked the great benevolence of Teacher Li.
One time, she took a box of Dafa truth-clarification materials and rode down the street. Suddenly, a man drove a motorcycle, hit her and knocked her flying tens of meters. She was unconscious for several minutes. When my sister-in-law awoke, she realized she was still lying on the ground. She rushed to get up. Her head was swollen, but she did not feel any pain. At that time, the man who hit her with the motorcycle was massaging her leg. She shouted a question at him: "Have you quit the Communist Party yet!?" That man feared my sister-in-law was blaming him, so he just kept quiet. Then my sister-in-law said to him: "What are you afraid of? I am fine. I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, I won't blame you. Follow me and say, 'Falun Dafa is good'; you know my Teacher saved your life." Then my sister-in-law clarified the truth to him and helped him make the three withdrawals. It seemed like nothing bad had happened. She continued to ride her bike and pass out materials.
Another experience happened when she was passing out some Dafa truth-clarification materials along a street and gave one to a student. The student passed it on to the police straight away. Two policemen came but couldn't find her after they had looked around. They asked the student where she was, and the student replied, "She was here just now, how could she get out of sight so soon?" Actually, my sister-in-law was still there, but to them she was invisible.
Another time, when she was passing out Dafa truth-clarification materials, policemen caught her and brought her to the police department. My sister-in-law started clarifying the truth to those policemen. A policeman even brought her some food, but she refused to accept the food. They tried to call the higher authorities in order to ask how to deal with the situation. At that moment, my sister-in-law sent forth righteous thoughts. As a result, no matter how they tried, the policeman still could not get through on the line. At last, they let her go back home. She only stayed in the police station for two hours. During those two hours she did not stop clarifying the truth to those policemen.
Another day, she was caught by policeman once again. When she got in the police van there were so many people in it, and there were no spare seats. One policeman said to her, "You squat in that corner." But my sister-in-law replied, "You go squat there!" That man really went to the corner and squatted there. My sister-in-law sat on the seat. When she got to the police station, she did the same thing as last time, by clarifying the truth for another two hours. As a result, they released her again. One policeman said, "You have your bike, no need to send you back. Go home by yourself."
One day she passed some Dafa materials to a young man. The young man called the police. One policeman asked her: "What did you give him?" She replied: "Something that will help him, for his own good." The policeman told her: "It's too hot, just go back home and rest."
There are many stories about my sister-in-law to tell. She never develops the attachment of zealotry and also does not show off. She always says, "I just do what Teacher has asked." With upright faith in Teacher and the Fa, and with the responsibility for all sentient beings, she walks magnanimously on her sacred path. All those things she did look like common things, but actually they are all earth-shaking events. Only a practitioner with righteous thoughts and righteous actions can do such.
