A Veteran Who Joined the Army in 1947 Regains His Health after Practicing Falun Dafa

November 15, 2004 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) I am a veteran who joined the army in 1947. I have received high awards from the military.

I used to suffer from over 10 different diseases.

In December 1990, I took a turn for the worse because of a major heart attack. After I was rescued, I had to remain hospitalized for four years. During my hospitalization, I had medical emergencies many times. I could not live without medication and oxygen.

In October 1994, I had a heart bypass operation. After the surgery, my heart only had one-quarter of the functions a normal heart has. One year later, during a checkup, it was found that two of the vessels in my heart were clogged, which could lead to sudden death.

In May 1997, I was transferred from a military hospital to a local civilian hospital for treatment. During the examination, I was found to have severe leukemia and a large tumor on my leg.

At that time, I suffered a complete mental collapse; I had lost the courage to live. I just wanted to end my life. I wrote my will and arranged my funeral.

However, just as I was in despair, I got a copy of the book, Zhuan Falun, from my brother. In the beginning, I didn't pay much attention to it since I knew nothing about cultivation. I was simply flipping through the pages while receiving an IV in bed. However, as I kept reading, the contents became more and more interesting. Then I sat up to read. Later I got off the bed and sat in a chair and read. At first I was still wearing my glasses. Then I felt the glasses were unnecessary, so I took them off. To my surprise, I found I could see even more clearly without glasses. This way I kept reading the book for several hours. Before I could finish the book, I suddenly came down with what felt like stomach flu. I went to the bathroom several times that day, but I didn't feel tired at all. Instead, I felt more energetic. At that time I truly felt this book was so miraculous. As long as I could calm down to study the book, positive changes were bound to happen.

Later my brother called to check on my health. I said emotionally, "Thank you so much for giving me this book!"

When I began to read the book for the second time, I requested to be discharged from the hospital. The doctors listed numerous reasons why I could not be discharged, but I simply insisted. The doctors told me that I would be responsible for any potential consequences myself. I signed my name on the discharge form without hesitation. The next morning, with the help of an assistant, I went to the park to look for a Falun Gong practice site. The second day, we were able to find one.

Starting September 8, 1997, I formally began to participate in the group exercise and study. Every morning I got up at 5:00 and went to the practice site to do exercises. I felt in high spirits and my health improved gradually. I was also calm and peaceful. I felt like I had changed to a completely different person. My illnesses disappeared one by one. In no more than one month, I stopped taking medication and I no long needed my assistant to accompany me to the park to practice. I also got rid of the oxygen tank. From the bottom of my heart I felt the power and might of Dafa and I realized the true meaning of human life.

I am a veteran serviceman. I had been doing political work in the army for many years. I used to believe only in modern science and often held a suspicious view of qigong, cultivation of the human body and supernormal capabilities. In the past, whenever I heard someone else talk about these things, I would think they were ignorant and superstitious. After I took up the practice of Falun Dafa, I came to understand that there is a boundless Great Law in the universe unknown to humankind, and that there are so many heavenly secrets to be experienced by humankind. Take myself as an example. The many illnesses that modern medicine had diagnosed as incurable were all cured by Falun Dafa. My personal experience firmly proves that Falun Dafa is a true science, not superstition. Moreover, many other people who suffered terminal illnesses have regained their health after practicing Falun Dafa. All this suggests that Falun Dafa is a true science.

Without Falun Dafa, I wouldn't be alive today. I received a second life from Falun Dafa. I will let more people know about my personal experience and tell them that Falun Dafa is the universal Law that can truly save people.
