An 80-Year-Old Woman Speaks from Her Heart

October 28, 2004 |   By a practitioner in Jinan City, Shandong Province


Greetings Honorable Master!

Greetings all practitioners!

I am eighty years old. I often saw my son and my daughter-in-law writing things lately. So, I asked them what they were writing. My daughter-in-law told me that they were writing experience sharing articles for the First Written Experience Sharing for Falun Gong Practitioners in China. Every practitioner may write. These experiences will be mailed to America where Master lives. I also want to share something, but I cannot write. So, I asked my daughter-in-law to write for me.

Before, I believed what I heard on TV. I opposed my son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter and grandson for practicing Falun Gong. But after I saw the miraculous changes in my son and daughter-in-law, I became convinced, from the bottom of my heart.

My husband departed when I was 39 years old. Afterwards, I nurtured my son to maturity with countless trials and hardships. My son had a serious case of hepatitis when he was 33 years old. It cost us more than 5 thousand yuan to have his illness treated. My daughter-in-law had myocarditis and cervical vertebral disease. I had a very young granddaughter and a very young grandson to take care of, and I was in poor health myself. I have had such a hard life! I thought my situation was hopeless. But once my son and daughter-in-law started practicing Falun Gong, they soon became healthy. I almost could not believe it, but it was right there before my eyes. My son's complexion is now fair and rosy; my daughter-in-law takes good care of me and keeps up with a lot of housework. She never feels tired even though she wakes up earlier and goes to bed later. She has not needed to take any medicine during these years.

Eventually, I said, "I also want to learn Falun Gong." My family was very happy with my decision. In March of this year, I started to practice Dafa. When I listen to Master's audio tapes, I feel that Master's voice is very familiar and kind. I cannot read, so my children transcribed Master's "Hong Yin" (1) for me. They taught me word by word, and I studied diligently. Now I can read all of "Hong Yin." My children have started teaching me to read "LunYu."(2) My relatives all think it is a miracle. I am eighty years old and couldn't read a single word before. But now I can read the book! I have good health now and I have not needed medicine ever since I began studying the Fa. Sometimes, it appears that I'm eliminating karma on the surface, but I do not treat it as illness. I will follow our Master and cultivate diligently!

I deeply appreciate that Master has saved our family. I want to tell the people who do not believe in Falun Gong that "Falun Dafa is wonderful!"
