(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa is spreading around the world. People who hear about its greatness and believe in it derive both mental and physical benefits.

During the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong, those who chose not to interfere with Dafa and believed that it was good, experienced one miracle after another.

Zhong Guoxi, 46, is a resident of Dalian City and a prisoner in the newcomers' section in the Liaoning Yingkou Prison. He was sentenced to 8 years in prison for drug use. After he entered the prison, he came down with a strange illness.

On his upper body, small pustules grew under his skin. His body ached so badly that he rolled all over the floor in pain. The pain only disappeared when the pustules were cut open and the pus was squeezed out.

No one knew the name of the disease, which flared up once a week. It appeared to be incurable. Each time the disease flared up, two to four pustules were visible on his body. Over time, his body was full of wounds. He thought to himself, "It would be better to be dead than to suffer like this!"

Later, Zhong Guoxi had the opportunity to meet some Falun Gong practitioners locked in the prison. He understood that Falun Gong is righteous cultivation and that it was wrong to slander the practice and to persecute its practitioners.

He was moved by the compassion and forbearance of the practitioners, and wanted to speak out the truth. One day in March 2006, in the prison canteen, he shouted, “Falun Dafa is good!” and “It is wrong to persecute Falun Gong!” and “Falun Gong practitioners are all kind people!”

Not long after, something unexpected happened. His debilitating disease disappeared without any treatment. He told the prison guards, "You see, the pustules on my body disppeared after I made contact with Falun Gong!"

Acquaintance's Good Luck

By a practitioner in Chongqing City, China

One day in 2004, I went to Xinfu town of Tongliang County of Chongqing City to handle affairs. I met an acquaintance whom I've known for years. His name is Tang Zhongyun, and he is over seventy years old. When I saw him, he looked senile and moved especially slow. His face, hands, and feet were swollen.

I asked him, “What's wrong with you?” He told me he had high blood pressure, arthritis, Ménière's disease, among many other illnesses. He had tried various treatments in numerous hospitals, but nothing worked.

His family member who was standing next to him, cried in despair. “We went everywhere for treatments. Now we are broke, yet we still have not found a cure. It seems like we lost our lives and our life savings. He is just waiting to die.”

I felt so sad for their situation, then I felt compassion. I comforted them: “Do not worry. There is always a way out. I have a way and perhaps it will have a magical effect.” Then, I told them about the greatness of Falun Dafa. I told them to sincerely read the words: “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told them that by repeating these words, not only will his situation turn around, but it will also have magical effect on his health. They thanked me, and I left in a hurry. I later forgot about the matter.

Not long ago, I ran into him again. He looked like a completely different person. He was particularly excited to see me and eager to tell me: “Since you told me those words, I went back home and read them every day. The more I read, the better my body felt. It did not take very long for me to recover. It really is a miracle. You see how good I look? I can cook for the senior center now.”

When I saw how happy he was, my eyes started to tear.

Seriously Ill Ninety-year-old Recovers in Three Days

By a practitioner in mainland China

My mother is ninety-three years old. A month ago, my family called to tell me she was seriously ill. She was not able to eat or drink anything and she could not defecate. She just drank two to three tablespoons of milk in twenty days. She just lay in bed every day. She was skinny and looked nothing like she did before.

I am over seventy years old. The last time I saw my mother was on August 19, when I went to her home.

When I arrived, I discovered that she could not speak. She was conscious and weakly mumbled something but I could not hear what she said. I practice Falun Gong, and as such, I know that that the opportunity to come across Dafa is rare indeed.

I wanted to tell my mother, “Falun Dafa is good!” before she died. So I told her to read, “Falun Dafa is good!” Since her hearing is not good, I leaned over and spoke the words directly into her ears. She could not say anything so I read to her. The next day, I helped her to read over ten minutes. She said: “You take a break for a while. I'll read by myself.”

On the third day, I asked her if she remembered what we read before. She nodded and said she remembered. At 3 p.m. that afternoon, she suddenly sat up and shouted, “Falun Dafa is good!” Then she said: “I want to go outside.” Then she moved her feet to the side of the bed.

Our family was terrified and thought that it may be “lightning striking before death” (a Chinese saying). We asked her what happened; if she wanted a drink of water, and if she wanted to take a break. After a while, she lay back down.

That evening, she wanted to eat some porridge and and drink some water. She was able to speak. Our family was very happy.

Gradually, she was able to eat and sit up by herself. She still needed assistance using the bathroom, but after a while, she was able to use her crutches to go to the bathroom herself. We could see physical and mental improvement in her every day.

She had not urinated in over twenty days but now she is OK. After she washes up in the morning, she lies down in bed to read, “Falun Dafa is good!”

My mother's physical and mental state have improved dramatically. Now, everyone in my family believes that Dafa is good. My family members witnessed the miracle of Dafa, once again. They saw that she recovered rapidly simply by reading, “Falun Dafa is good!”
