| By A Falun Dafa Practitioner In Mainland China
I am 37 years old this year. I am a very fortunate person because I began to practice Falun Gong while I was suffering from an incurable illness. That illness, which had not been cured even after spending hundreds of thousands of yuan (1), disappeared after I practiced Falun Gong for a few months.
Having benefited so much from Falun Gong, I feel so sad that such a good practice is being slandered and persecuted by Jiang Zemin's followers in China. Here, I'd like to share my true experience with Falun Dafa, so that those who have been deceived by Jiang's propaganda can have a correct view of it.
In March 2000, I was infected with hepatitis. Upon taking the hospital exam, I was told that the illness was very severe. The doctors introduced me to a retired Chinese medical doctor who claimed to be able to cure the illness. He treated me for five months, and I spent more than 20,000 yuan on medical treatment, but the illness was still unchecked. My family was very worried about me, and they looked everywhere for better treatment. Later, someone introduced me to another retired senior doctor and I took his treatments for 4 months. All the medical expenses cost more than 30,000 yuan, but the illness didn't subside. My family began to lose hope. All my relatives and friends looked for special medicines to cure my illness, and my family spent another 10,000 yuan. However, after one year, when I went to the hospital for an exam, the illness was still there. By that time we had no more money to spend, so I had to stop taking medicine.
In May 2002, I had a flare up of my liver disease. A friend introduced me to a new doctor. With a gleam of hope, I went to see him, and he told me that he was very confident of getting rid of the illness. He said,￣ I have cured of a lot of patients like you. You need to pay 20,000 yuan first, and you also need to buy drugs and combine them with my herbs to achieve a better effect. After you are cured of the liver illness, I will call a TV reporter here. Then, please help me advertise my medical skills.￣ I agreed with his requests and confidently let him treat my illness. However, when I was examined 5 months later, the liver illness had developed to liver cancer.
I had spent more than 100,000 yuan on the illness, and I never expected things would turn out this way. My whole family lived under the cloud of my illness, as well. During my time of almost complete despair, one of my relatives introduced me to Falun Gong. It was December 2002. I learned the Falun Gong exercises, and my health began to get better and better. With the support and encouragement of my family, I practiced Falun Gong cultivation very diligently. The illness miraculously disappeared after only a few months of the practice! During this time I spent no money at all on my illness. I am so lucky to be practicing Falun Gong. All of my neighbors and friends saw me working in the fields and going fishing after practicing for such a short period of time, and they marveled at the power of Falun Gong.
My friends, I am full of gratitude to the founder of Falun Gong, Teacher Li Hongzhi. It is he who saved me from death. I became a healthy person again, and happiness was restored to my family. Actually, Falun Gong saved my whole family. I want to tell everyone of my experience so that they will not be taken in by the lies of Jiang's media. One single personal experience outweighs thousands of their lies.
I wish to tell all of you that Falun Dafa is so good, because it teaches people to practice according to ＾Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance￣ and improves the quality of life in society. I cannot understand why such a good practice is being persecuted, instead of being broadly promoted. I think it is completely wrong and unfair.
