A Story from China: Professor Credits Falun Dafa for His Rapid Recovery from Surgery
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Professor Wang visited his friend Professor Yu. Professor Yu was in the golden age of his career, but had to retire early due to hyperplasia in his neck vertebra. Professor Yu was lying in bed in extreme pain, and said to Professor Wang, "This time, I can still struggle to say a few words with you. The next time you come, I probably won't be able to talk." During the conversation, Professor Yu had tears in his eyes.
Professor Wang replied, "As long as you believe the words, 'Falun Dafa is great,' your disease will be cured. I am not joking with you, nor merely comforting you. If you believe it sincerely, the miracle will happen." Then he began to tell Professor Yu about the miracle that Falun Dafa had bestowed on him. He also talked about the practitioners' peaceful appeal on April 25, the brutal persecution of 100 million practitioners since July 20, 1999, the truth about the "Tiananmen self-immolation incident," the spreading of Falun Dafa in more than 60 countries world-wide, and the fact that Jiang's regime is being sued in overseas courts. Professor Yu kept nodding his head, and said, "I believe what you said is true. I will keep thinking 'Falun Dafa is great.' "
Two weeks later, Professor Wang visited Professor Yu again. This time, Professor Yu could stand up with crutches and welcomed him. Professor Yu's operation had been very successful. He said, "Falun Dafa is so amazing. I have to believe my own experience. Thank you, you saved my life. Without you, I would probably still be lying in the hospital and not be able to come back home."
Professor Wang answered, "Our Teacher saved you, and Falun Dafa saved you. You should thank Teacher and Dafa." Professor Yu burst into tears and said, "I was sent to the hospital on a stretcher by ambulance. My ward mate had the same disease as me, but he rode to the hospital on a bike, so his illness was less serious than mine. Before the operation, the doctor explained to us both about the possible outcomes of the operation: 1) we could possibly die, 2) there was a possibility of becoming comatose, 3) there was a possibility of being paralyzed, and 4) the best they could hope for was for us to just have the ability to take care of our own basic needs.
"The doctor took out my lifeless neck bone, and replaced it with a bone from my leg. The operation lasted 8 hours while my whole body was anesthetized. I was saying in my mind, 'Falun Dafa is great' on the way to the hospital and on the operating table. I felt as though a great benefactor was helping me. I could hear clearly what the doctors were saying. They said that the operation was smooth and successful. What even surprised the doctors is that I am recovering especially fast, and even broke the hospital's record for a speedy recovery. The doctors wrote down my entire health history and wanted to investigate further. I don't think they will learn anything from that. I know that the essential key is because I believed, 'Falun Dafa is great'."
"But, my ward mate is paralyzed, and I do not know when he will be released from the hospital. I will tell him to say, 'Falun Dafa is great!' I will also tell the doctors and nurses about my miracle!" Professor Yu asked Professor Wang for a Falun Gong book, because he also wanted to practice. Professor Wang delivered the book to him the next day.
During that time, Professor Yu's 3-year-old grandson contracted a rare disease. The hospitalization would cost more than 15,000 yuan (1), but with no guarantee of a cure. The family had spent all of their savings on Professor Yu's illness. His son's schoolwork was also affected. His job was not good; moreover, he did not have his own residence, and had to squeeze into his parents-in-law's home. The 3-year-old grandson was not healthy. He was even shorter than a 1-year-old child. In this kind of situation, the whole family did not know how to help the child and felt that the life was very bitter.
Professor Wang explained to the whole family, "It is bitter to be a human being. Only cultivation can change a person's life. If Professor Yu practices Falun Gong, the whole family will also benefit. If the son and the whole family practice Falun Gong, it will be even better. Only through cultivation can one unexpectedly find a way out of a desperate situation. This may be your chance to practice Falun Gong."
Professor Yu's son said, "I want to practice Falun Gong." Professor Yu said, "I have already seen the greatness of Falun Dafa, and received good rewards. Otherwise I wouldn't have recovered so quickly. We can practice Falun Gong together." Professor Wang said, "Great! We will all practice Falun Gong together. I will deliver the book to you tomorrow."
Professor Yu's family immediately became very happy.
