Witnessing that "Falun Dafa is Good"
Witnessing the Spread of Falun Dafa in China
In May 1996, I began cultivation in Falun Dafa. After I finished reading Zhuan Falun for the first time, I was really impressed by the breadth and depth of the Fa as well as the healing effects Falun Dafa has on one's body. Usually, we arrived at the exercise site at 4 o'clock in the morning and followed the music to meditate for an hour. Then we did the standing exercises. When we finished, we studied the Fa for half an hour. Every two weeks or so, we went to a large public square to demonstrate the exercises. Five hundred practitioners would gather there to do the exercises and the field was full of serenity and peace.
We formed a Fa study group at the beginning of 1997. At first, there were only eight people. Gradually, we had fourteen to fifteen. We studied the Fa together and shared our cultivation experiences, encouraging each other.
One practitioner was nearly sixty-years-old. One day, he was accidentally run into by a large motorcycle. He lied on the ground, his leg was bleeding and his trousers were torn. The riders, a young man and a young lady, helped him up and wanted to take him to the hospital. He said, "It doesn't matter. Please just go, I'm OK." The couple wanted to pay him some cash as compensation for his injury, but he refused. He cleaned himself off and walked back home, limping.
Many practitioners have talked about the good things that have happened to them after beginning to practice Falun Dafa. A middle-aged woman had heart disease and all kinds of other illnesses before cultivation, but through studying the Fa and doing the exercises, all her illnesses disappeared. An elderly male practitioner suffered what appeared to be a stroke, leaving his face temporarily twisted. He believed in Dafa very much and thought that it was due to karma elimination. After a month, his face returned to normal. Another young man whose legs were paralyzed was able to stand up and walk after studying the Fa and doing the exercises. He tells everyone he meets that Falun Dafa is good.
During that period of time, we studied the Fa two hours together, twice a week, and we also had an experience sharing meeting. We attended a special meeting held in memory of Master's introducing Falun Dafa to the public. We also attended experience sharing meetings held in cities nearby.
When I went to the meeting held in one particular city a month after Falun Dafa was introduced there, 4,000 practitioners attended. Three short years later, in May 1999, more than twenty thousand practitioners in that city gathered to demonstrate the exercises in two different locations. There were more than thirty thousand practitioners in that city.
Witnessing the Beauty of Dafa
Before cultivating Falun Gong, my health was so poor that I contracted Hepatitis B. After one month of cultivation, the chronic hepatitis that had bothered me for 30 years was totally gone.
One summer, while I was walking down the street I was drenched in a sudden rain storm. That night, I had a fever of 39 oC (about 102 oF). I knew that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner and my karma was being eliminated. I believed that I would be better after midnight. Just as I expected, after 12 a.m., my temperature dropped to 37 oC (about 99 oF).
One winter night at 3 a.m., my spouse fell down on his way to the bathroom and fell into a stupor. Before cultivation, he had once fallen down because of a heart attack and almost died. So we immediately took him to the hospital to be given emergency treatment. After several examinations, including a CT scan, we were told that nothing serious had happened. But his head hurt so much he couldn't get out of bed. So we went to another hospital. A specialist said that we'd better have an MRI done.
When we were about to have the MRI done on him, I thought of some practitioners who went to the hospital but had gotten even worse and some had even died. I realized my husband's condition was an old force arrangement. So I kept sending forth righteous thought to eliminate the interference that was causing him to appear ill and asked Master for help.
I kept sending forth righteous thought until they finished the procedure and my husband came out. The doctor said, "He's fine, the small blood vessels just bled a little and his body will absorb it. He doesn't need to be in the hospital."
After we brought my husband home he could eat and his head didn't hurt and very soon he was back to normal. Through this event, I felt the amazing power of Dafa.
I knew an older couple who were also Falun Gong practitioners. Although they had a rough life financially, they still helped a leukemia patient whose life was very difficult. They told him that if he recited "Falun Dafa is good" sincerely, he would be fine. The patient did what they asked him and his health improved. The other patients who were sick during the same time he was had all died. He became totally fine and returned to work!
More and more people have realized that Falun Dafa is good.
