(Clearwisdom.net) I am eighty-five years old. On April 27, 2005, I came from Sichuan Province to visit my niece in Hebei Province, where I was fortunate to start practicing Dafa again. As early as 1996, I practiced Falun Gong at Xinhua Park in Chengdu City. On July 20, 1999, the evil Party started attacking and slandering Dafa on TV stations and radio. They arrested people everywhere and we lived under the shadow of fear. One day my granddaughter, who was attending junior high school, burned all of my Dafa books when I was not home. When I got home, she told me, "Grandpa, I burned those books of yours. I was afraid that you would be arrested by the security office. The government and security office have arrested so many people. I fear that they will search our home." I was very distressed after I learned that she burned all of my books! I then developed the attachment of fear and dared not practice. Six years have passed in a snap. I truly regret the precious time I have wasted. It is our great Teacher who gives me another chance to return to my origin. I will cherish this opportunity.

On April 29, 2005, my niece said to me, "Uncle, make up your mind to practice Dafa even though you are over eighty. You will benefit both physically and mentally." I then practiced the exercises together with her. She patiently taught me the movements again. Since I had not practiced for six years, I had forgot the movements, especially for the meditation exercise. I now insist on practicing the exercises, studying the Fa and sending forth righteous thoughts regularly. In just over two months, I have read through all the Dafa books. I watched Teacher's lectures on VCD and listened to the lectures on tape. I have also read Zhuan Falun three times.

I had suffered insomnia for over one year. Being unable to sleep even after taking pills, I often had to get up and do some reading or watch TV, or listen to radio. It was truly burdensome. However, several days after I restarted practicing Dafa, I could sleep at least seven hours, after which I get up to study the Fa and practice the exercises. My right ear was once deaf from an injury. My hearing was bad and I could only hear a little. It has now improved a lot. My right ear is almost as good as my left ear. My niece bought me a tape recorder so that I can listen to the Teacher's lectures on tape. I switched the earpiece from left ear to my right ear and found that I can hear equally well. Dafa is truly miraculous.

I once suffered from a severe hernia. I had sought medicine all over and spent several thousand yuan without any relief from the pain that I often suffered. There was a big swollen lump on my lower abdomen, which made my daily life very difficult. After I restarted practicing Falun Gong, it shrank in size and was no longer painful. I can now freely go about my daily activities.

I had cataract surgery in 2002. I could only see slightly better after the operation. My vision was blurry and my eyes watered all the time. I had taken various kinds of medicine without much effect. After I restarted practicing, my eyes no longer water and my vision has improved a lot. I can read and write without any problem.

Two weeks into my practice in May, I developed a big lump the size of a dollar coin on the left side of my neck. I thought it was some kind of boil, as it was very itchy. Within about twenty days, it gradually became smaller and eventually disappeared. In mid-May, I suddenly developed many lumps on my hands. Their sizes ranged from the size of my little finger to the size of my thumb. Next day they spread to my legs and waist. The feeling of itchiness and burning sensation was almost unendurable. On the third day, I sent forth righteous thoughts and asked Teacher for help. On the fourth day, they all disappeared. I could not express my gratitude towards Teacher in words. Teacher: I thank you for your compassionate protection, and for everything you did for me. I have nothing to return. I can only be diligent and keep up with the pace of Fa rectification.

I will spread the magnificence of Falun Dafa to all the people I know or those I may not know but who have predestined relationships. I will ask them to truly realize the lies of the evil party and tell them that Falun Dafa is good, and that "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance" is good. I will do the three things well: study the Fa, send forth righteous thoughts and clarify the truth to live up to the expectations of Teacher.
