(Clearwisdom.net) I am a woman in my sixties and I am a farmer in Hubei Province. I have been practicing Falun Gong for several years. I asked a friend to help write down my experiences of practicing Falun Gong, in order to validate how great and benevolent Teacher is.

In February 2005, I accidentally broke my wrist. We were poor, so I didn't want to spend money to go to the hospital to have my broken wrist fixed. I asked someone who had some medical knowledge to help take an X-ray and fix the bone. However, it still hurt so much afterwards. Twenty days later, my family finally convinced me that I should take another X-ray. It was found that the bone wasn't fixed properly. We went to see that amateur doctor again. This time, he said he didn't know what to do. Feeling helpless, I went to town to see an old doctor that I was familiar with. When I arrived, I was told he was out of town and wouldn't be back until three days later. So I stayed with a relative, waiting for the doctor to fix my wrist.

My relative is a Falun Dafa practitioner. After July 20, 1999 when the persecution started, she was illegally detained for two years by the police. After that, every time I saw her, she'd talk to me about some of the experiences of Falun Dafa practitioners. I had been poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party's propaganda, so therefore I was not open to her. At one time, my arthritis came back again. I ran into my relative on my way to see the doctor. She suggested that I practice Falun Gong. I said, “But my joints are stiff.” She then asked me to read the Falun Dafa books. I said, “But I don't have a lot of education.” She said I'd get well if I practiced the Falun Dafa exercises. I didn't answer her but thought in my heart, “My arthritis is so bad. It's even useless when I take a lot of medicine. How could I get well by just doing a few exercises? I got a little better last time after drinking some medicinal wine.” When she tried to clarify the truth to me more, I said, “I'm very busy!” and then I left.

This time, my relative said to me, “While you are waiting for the doctor to return from out of town, why don't you watch my Teacher's Fa lecture in Dalian? This is the Fa of the cosmos.” Upon her advice, I agreed to watch three lectures every day, so that I could finish the whole nine lectures in three days. That night, when my relative realized that I couldn't move very freely by myself, she helped me wash my hair and take a bath. I didn't expect her to treat me so nicely. Previously, my daughter had told me that she was a very kind person. This time, I felt it myself. I asked her, “Why are you so nice?” She said, “Falun Gong practitioners are all good people. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) locks up good people in prisons and tries to force them to give up practicing Falun Dafa. Still, when they are released, they continue to practice Falun Dafa. Wouldn't you agree that Falun Gong is good? Who would continue to practice it if it weren't good? We practice Falun Dafa even if we are illegally detained in prisons.”

On the first day when I watched Teacher's Fa-lecture, I couldn't let go of my worries of having my broken wrist fixed and getting in touch with the doctor. She said to me, “The doctor is not at home. It will not help if you worry about it too much. If you don't listen carefully, you won't be able to learn anything. Just focus and don't worry about other things.” Gradually, I calmed down. The more I listened to Teacher lecturing on the Fa, the more I wanted to listen. I seemed to understand some things. After three days, I finished all the nine lectures. I hesitantly asked her, “I don't have much educational background. Can I still practice Falun Gong?” She said, “Yes.” Then she told me a story about her classmate's in-law who couldn't read. After practicing Falun Dafa, he was able to read through the entire book Zhuan Falun. When he was illegally arrested after the persecution started, the local police knew he wasn't literate. They said, “We will release you if you can recite Lunyu.” Realizing that it was a trick, he asked for the head of the police station as the witness. Then in front of a dozen policemen, he correctly recited Lunyu. The policemen were very surprised, so they released him. Then my relative said to me, “Last year I asked you to practice Falun Gong. Yet you found many excuses. It's not that you don't want to learn it, it's that you believed the CCP's propaganda which prevents you from practicing Falun Dafa. All their propaganda is fabricated stories and is not true.”

I asked, “I have believed in Buddha for over thirty years. And I made a promise at a temple before. What should I do?” She said, “You broke your wrist today. Why didn't the temple help you? At today's temples, they'd be happy if you give them more money. They wouldn't help you if you bring less money. Nothing can be done if you don't believe Falun Dafa or if you don't study the Fa whole-heartedly. You made a promise when you weren't clear with everything. So why don't you clearly make a wish to Teacher?”

On the fourth day I watched the videotape to learn how to do the Falun Dafa exercises. My joints were stiff and I couldn't remember all of the movements. My relative asked me to take it easy and pay more attention to cultivating my heart and disciplining myself according to Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. In the afternoon, she was reading books in her home office. I sat in front of the TV in the living room. I was thinking of Teacher. After ten minutes or so, I made a promise to Teacher, “In all my lives, I will study Falun Dafa. I will never change my mind. Teacher, please take me as your disciple.”

A few seconds later, I felt a strong force separating the bones of my broken wrist and then connect them back together very quickly. The force was stronger than if done by doctors. Yet it didn't hurt that much. I came to realize that it was Teacher showing me his benevolence and fixing my broken bones. I truly experienced Falun Dafa's power and magnificence. I knew that Falun Dafa is the true way. I didn't dare move, but just sat there.

At two o'clock, the alarm went off. I remembered that it was for my appointment with the doctor, as I made that appointment the first day when I arrived. My relative came out and asked me, “Are you going to see the doctor?” I said, “Teacher already fixed my broken wrist.” Then I told her about how I made a promise and what happened. She was teary and said, “How benevolent Teacher is.” She pressed her palms together in front of her chest in a gesture respect, to thank Teacher. I did it too.

My relative went back into her den and brought a large notebook to me. She said, “This is the book of Zhuan Falun. I hand-copied it. I managed to protect this book even when I was illegally detained and my home was illegally searched. Today I give it to you. You must cherish it. Whenever you have time, please read the book and study the Fa. Never go back to temples again. Clean out your home to get rid of those messy things. Call me if needed and I'll come visit you.” I then went back home in the afternoon.

March 30, 2005 is the date that I can never forget. It was the day when I started to walk the cultivation path to return to my true self. No matter how busy I am on the farm, I read a few pages of Zhuan Falun every day. I also practice the Falun Dafa exercises every day.

In May, I sneezed out something foul-smelling from my nose. Then my rhinitis got well. It was once again Teacher who cleansed my body! In June, my earlier pelvic diseases seemed to have come back again. I felt so awful that I almost couldn't bear it and was planning to go visit the doctor. Yet the sickness karma was eliminated within three days.
