"She Couldn't Recover That Fast Even Taking Medicine!"
(Clearwisdom.net) On January 26 of this year, my younger brother's wife slipped on the snow and ice in her courtyard. After an exam, doctors told her that her lumbar vertebrae were fractured in three places, her coccyx was cracked, and her joints were dislocated. She needed to lie in bed without moving for three months. This meant that someone had to attend to her every need. At night, my sister-in-law was in so much pain that she could not fall asleep. She could only sleep after taking painkillers. She could barely eat or drink, but took a large number of pills with a swallow of water, which then caused her stomach to burn. She became so weak that she did not have any strength to say even one word.
I went to see her seven days after she was injured, and she was glad to see me. As she lay in bed, I started to tell her amazing stories of practicing Dafa. Listening for a while, she became spirited, and her voice became louder. Master told us,
"The Buddha School teaches self-salvation and salvation of all sentient beings. One does not only cultivate oneself, but also offers salvation to all sentient beings. Others can benefit as well, and you can unintentionally rectify other people's bodies, heal their illnesses, and so on." ("Zhuan Falun," 2000 translation version)
Remembering this, I said to her, "Please come and live with me. Both my brother and nephew need to work, so they don't have time to take care of you. Let me look after you." My nephew, who was nearby, said, "No, Aunt, it's not the time now. You cannot move my mother. Only someone as strong as my father or I can do that." I replied, "Don't worry. Just come and it will be fine." Due to my insistence, my nephew finally drove her to my house. Getting out of the car, my nephew and I supported her and walked with careful steps. It was very hard just to get her across the doorsill. My neighbors also saw how difficult it was at that time.
At noon on the same day, after making lunch, I put the tray on the bed to get ready to feed her. To my surprise, she sat up by herself! Sitting up against the windows, she happily said, "I can sit to have meals again." She ate a lot at noon. I told her that she should feel free to eat and drink and that she needn't worry about anything. I placed the portable toilet under the bed, so it would be convenient to use.
After lunch, she lay back down again and was in no pain. In fact, she hadn't felt any pain since she had moved to my house. In the afternoon, she asked, "My dear sister, may I stop taking the pain medications? I have such indigestion." I answered, "That's good. Master has said that illness is to eliminate karma, and that it is not a good idea to take medicine because that will press the karma back inside. Since you enlightened not to take the medicine, that's very good." Hearing this made her very happy. She told me that her son had forced her to take the medicine at home, and that it was so nice of me not to do that. They had brought a large box of medicine to my house, but after she arrived at my home, she never took any of it. When the box was returned, it was still unopened.
In the evening, I let her watch the videotapes of Master teaching in Guangzhou. Her steady gaze did not waver. She said, "Master taught so well, and I feel His teaching easy to understand." I said, "We will just watch one tape today because you have sit up to have two meals and have sit for an hour to study the Fa. You need to take a rest since you have been sitting so long." She slept comfortably that night and was never in pain.
The next morning when I was making breakfast in the kitchen, she got out of bed and wanted to use the toilet in the restroom, but I stopped her because she needed to cross over two steps to get there, and it was hard for her. The third morning when I was making breakfast, she went to the restroom secretly. I found out after I went back to the bedroom, and it made me very happy. At this time, the neighbor living on one side saw this and said with surprise, "She could barely walk in here, and now she can go to the restroom by herself. How amazing Falun Gong is. You often tell me Falun Gong is good, and I believed it. However, it didn't occur to me that she could recover this fast. Falun Gong is very good--I also want to study it as soon as possible."
On the second day, my nephew called me to ask about his mother. I told him that she hadn't been in any pain since she had gotten to my house and never took any medicine. He replied, "That's good, Aunt. I'm sorry to trouble you." I said that it was no trouble.
I thought it was a good chance for his mother to obtain the Fa. On the fourth day, my nephew and his wife came to see their mother. My sister-in-law, looking radiant, sat up to talk to them. They were very happy to see how well she was doing and were amazed that she could recover so fast. My nephew told me that he would go tell his father that his mother had regained her health. After two days, my brother, my nephew and his wife, as well as the sister of my brother's wife, all came to see her. Everyone was so happy to find that she had recovered so quickly. I took the opportunity to tell everyone that it was because of Dafa that my sister had recovered so fast, and taught them to say, "Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." When they left, my sister-in-law saw them to the door.
Master told us,
"Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master. It is good enough if you have this wish." (Zhuan Falun)
My sister-in-law experienced by herself how amazing Dafa is since she watched Master's teaching videotapes and had a desire to study the Fa. After the second day, we watched one lesson of Master's teaching videotapes in the evening, and during the day, she studied Zhuan Falun Fajie - The Law of Zhuan Falun Explained. On the fourth morning when I woke up to sit in meditation, she also followed to sit in meditation and did so for an hour. When I stood to practice exercises one through four, she sat on the bed to learn the exercises. On the fifth day, she could stand to learn the exercises. That day she couldn't bend over and circle her feet for the fourth exercise, but on the sixth day, she could. She watched Master's teaching videotapes every night, did the exercises every morning with me, and read Dafa books during the rest of the time. She said, "I am going to heaven to learn a lesson this time; I am going directly to college from elementary school. It helps me understand a lot. Master's Fa is so good, I really want to study it."
The seventh and eighth days, she could hardly stay in bed. She got up to help me make food, scatter corn for the chickens, tend the fire, sweep, and mop. She followed this routine in my home for eighteen days, learning Falun Gong and understanding a lot. I told her that she had come to my home to obtain the Fa, rather than to convalescence. She agreed with me very much. When she left, I presented her a set of discs of Master's teaching the Fa in Guangzhou and a set of exercise tapes. She accepted them as though she had been given a treasure and happily took them home.
During the time that Master made Dafa public, I had given her copies of Zhuan Falun and Hong Yin. After July 20, 1999, she carefully wrapped up the books and hid them. She hadn't opened them since. She considered them a treasure that should be hidden. She always had a good opinion of Dafa. It was because of this predestined relationship that she finally obtained the Fa through this opportunity.
For my sister-in-law to recover so quickly after practicing Falun Gong created a sensation in my village. My neighbor was an witness to what took place. As a result of this amazing occurrence, some people who had a predestined relationship obtained the Fa. Those with prostate disease or heart disease all recovered after they obtained the Fa.
The fifth day after my sister-in-law came to my house, my mother-in-law came to see her and said, "Wow, it is so amazing. Without any pills, you feel no pain and are even up and about again?" My sister answered, "Yes, it is. I couldn't have recovered so fast even by taking the medicine. That year after I fell down the stairs and broke my lumbar vertebrae, I laid in bed for forty-five days without moving. It is really magic this time!" My mother-in-law didn't believe Dafa before, but right then, confronted with the facts of this miraculous recovery, she also believed in Dafa.
