(Clearwisdom.net) I'm now seventy-two years old. Forty years ago I suffered from heart disease, lung disease and arthritis. When I was very sick I couldn't fall asleep for several days and nights and wouldn't eat. When walking, I would fall if the wind were too strong. My body was only skin and bones. Every year I spent almost 10,000 Yuan in medicine, which made the whole family so poor that it looked like we had suffered through a flood. I really felt that I was an unwanted person in the family and very miserable.

In the summer of 1996, my health became worse. Realizing that my life had already reached the end, I asked my family members to prepare a funeral for me and told them some things to do after my death.

At this very point of despair, a friend came to visit me. He introduced the wonders of Falun Dafa to me and told me that this practice was a cultivation practice of mind and body, which is based on "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance" and practitioners were to be good persons, people who cared nothing about personal fame and interest and didn't fight with others. He also told me that if my true wish for cultivation came out, Master's law body would come and safeguard me. He also said through doing the exercises, supernormal abilities would be strengthened and karma would be eliminated, which would then change my body.

Upon hearing of this, I used all of my energy to grasp his hands and told him, "I want to learn Dafa. I believe Falun Dafa is good."

A few days later I got the precious book Zhuan Falun. Although I had lain in bed for almost half a year, I suddenly felt an inexhaustible energy. I got up, held the book, and looked at Master's picture, tears spilling like a fountain.

Since that day I gave myself to Master and Dafa. There is Master, there is Dafa, and there is me. Every day I asked children one by one to read the book to me in their spare time. All that Master speaks of I bear in my mind. I felt myself come alive again.

Ten days later I then got up to do some work. My children, neighbors and friends all exclaimed at my change.

Master stated on page two of Lecture One in Zhuan Falun,

"I'm not going to talk about doing healing here. We don't do healing. But if you want to do true cultivation, and you've come here with an ailing body, then you can't cultivate yet. So I have to purify your body. I only purify the body for people who've truly come here to learn the practice, who truly come to learn the Law."

I bear Master's teaching in mind, letting go of having my illnesses healed and [concentrate on] cultivating my xinxing (1) everywhere and with everything. For several years now, my body has been really well. I never take any medication, but am always in good health and full of energy. My relatives and friends who had predestined relationships with Dafa all began to practice Dafa.

Being unable to read a word before, now I can read the whole of Zhuan Falun. I write down the few new words I came across on a piece of paper and ask my children the meaning later. I can also recite Master's Hong Yin and all the new articles. It's compassionate and great Master who gave me a second life, still Jiang's followers have told many lies to deceive everyday people, poisoning the minds of living beings and persecuting good people.
