(Clearwisdom.net) Although we have not been practicing Falun Dafa for long, many of the practitioners around us, both new and veteran, can testify from their personal experiences to the various benefits they have obtained from cultivating in Falun Dafa. Below are some examples.

1. Singing " Falun Dafa Hao" Brings in Predestined People

In a certain small village, there is an older woman who likes to sing songs to her grandchildren. One day she sang songs with the communist party culture theme, when a Dafa practitioner heard her and said, "Granny, let me teach you a song which is better for the children." Delighted, the woman quickly learned to sing, "Falun Dafa Hao," "Falun Dafa - The Righteous Fa," and "The Buddha Light Illuminates Everywhere."

Whenever she had nothing to do, the older woman sang them repeatedly. A few days later, the woman said to another woman in the village, "Something strange has happened to me. My arm that had been hurting for years no longer hurts after I started singing those songs."

Curious, the other woman asked her who taught her the songs. The older woman said that a Falun Dafa practitioner taught her. That evening, the woman and her husband paid a visit to the practitioner, wanting to find out more about it for themselves. They quickly learned the facts and started learning the Falun Gong exercises there and then. The very next day, both women said they felt good and were very grateful to the Master of Falun Gong for the opportunity. They said they would definitely continue to practice. Both are now steadfast practitioners, and have joined other practitioners to study the Fa and practice the exercises together.

2. Saved by a "Thought"

Yuping fractured her ankle after falling off a bike one day. The ankle was swollen and bruised, and was very painful. Her parents immediately took her to a clinic for treatment. Her bones were set, surgically stabilized, and she was prescribed a lot of medicine. But no improvement was evident.

Yuping's friend, practitioner B, heard the news and went to see her. Curious to find her friend looking so radiant and healthy, Yuping asked, "How do you manage to be so healthy?" Without hesitation, practitioner B replied that she had been practicing Falun Dafa.

"Wasn't Falun Dafa banned by the government some years ago...?" practitioner B took the opportunity and clarified the truth to her. Yuping understood in no time and wanted to learn the practice.

With that sincere intent, that night in her sleep, Yuping saw a very large figure grabbing her fractured ankle and forcefully giving it a twist. The sharp pain woke her up. She found herself soaked in sweat. But the next morning to her surprise, she was able to walk on her injured leg. Unable to hold back her joy and gratitude, Yuping called practitioner B and told her about the miracle, and asked practitioner B if she had anything to do with it. Practitioner B explained, "It was because your Buddha nature emerged and wanted to practice cultivation, so Master gave you a helping hand. You should thank Master for purifying your body."

Yuping thanked Master repeatedly, and asked practitioner B for a copy of Zhuan Falun right away. She later asked for the exercise tapes and other lectures given by Master from various places. In less than a week after starting the exercises, Yuping was riding her bike again.

3. Reborn After Obtaining Falun Dafa

Practitioner C started cultivation recently, in August 2006. Before taking up Falun Dafa practice, there was not one part in her body, from head to toe, that was without problems - cerebral arteriosclerosis, coronary insufficiency, hypoxemia, anemia, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary oedema and pleural effusion, pyloric ulceration and stenosis, biliary- and chole-lithiasis, etc. She was taking pills all the time and spent a lot of money without avail. One day in July 2006, her heart problem got worse. Severe, unremitting fever forced her to go to the hospital. However, none of the medication or intravenous therapy helped. Feeling disappointed and not wanting to put up with it any longer, she went home against others' advice.

After coming home and feeling very depressed, she decided to end her own life to save her husband and others from all the trouble of looking after her. One day, while everyone was out, she climbed up to the top floor to take her own life. But she was stopped in time by a Falun Dafa practitioner, who after taking her home, explained to her patiently about the meaning of life and the benefits of cultivating Falun Dafa. Eventually she was dissuaded from further thoughts of suicide.

Two days later, miraculously and as if waking up from a dream, she felt much better. On the third day, she asked to practice the Dafa exercises with the other practitioners together. In less than six months, all of her other illnesses just vanished. It goes without saying that she was overjoyed, and she told everyone she met that Dafa had given her a second life. Not only did she become healthy and strong, her combative disposition and irritable temper had also improved. After a year's practice, she said that she was still far from what Master required of her, but she would strive to do what a Dafa practitioner should do.

"I am not an educated person, but what I have said is true." She said, "The Communist Party has been slandering Dafa and flooding the public with lies. People who do not practice Falun Gong may not know the truth and be deceived, but I am the living testimony of the goodness of Falun Dafa, and the CCP's lies cannot fool me."
