Falun Dafa Saved Me from Despair

June 16, 2011 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner from Hubei Province, China

(Clearwisdom.net) I am a 76-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner from Hubei Province. I suffered from all kinds of diseases and lived through many hardships before practicing Falun Dafa.

My parents died when I was very young, so I became an orphan. In my middle age, I was wrongfully accused and my husband left me. Then, someone from my workplace, my husband and his mistress beat me. I was badly hurt and bleeding, and was taken to the hospital. My workplace refused to cover my medical expenses. Six lawyers volunteered to help me sue them, but due to the corruption within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the court took money from the defendants and I lost the lawsuit.

By the time I was in my 50s, I suffered from esophageal cancer, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, rheumatism, cerebrovascular disease and hematuria. I spent a lot of money on treatment, but nothing helped. In the end, no hospital wanted to accept me, and I could only go home and wait to die.

Life was very painful. I felt very bitter, cried a lot, didn’t want to speak anymore and became depressed. My days were so miserable that I wanted to be dead rather than alive.

I Was Fortunate to Obtain the Fa

Just when everything seemed hopeless, in 1995, I was fortunate enough to start practicing Falun Dafa. Some friends persuaded me to go to a Falun Dafa practitioners' experience sharing conference in the provincial capital. At the conference, we watched Teacher Li's Fa-lecture videos, and I was fascinated by the profound Fa principles that Teacher explained in such simple ways. I didn't even want to have lunch. I just wanted to finish watching Teacher's videos.

I went home the next day and at night I suddenly felt severe pain in my stomach. I thought to myself, “Whatever – just keep hurting; the worst that could happen is that I die.” After about ten minutes the pain suddenly disappeared and the symptoms of all my illnesses were gone. My body felt so relaxed, a feeling I had never experienced before. Tears were streaming from my eyes, as I thought: “Teacher! I haven't even seen you in person and you've already cleared away all these cancers and other hard-to-treat illnesses that have tortured me for years. My mind had already given up and my body was like a piece of dead wood, but you picked me up from hell and washed me clean. How can I ever repay you for your compassionate salvation?” I then told myself, “I'm determined to practice Falun Dafa and I will never give up!”

Broken Family Restored

Through studying the Fa, I understood why human beings are in this world and the cause-and-effect relationship of good and evil. I was determined to let go of whatever happened in the past, let go of gain and loss, and become a selfless and altruistic person according the requirements of Dafa.

I became a brand new, healthy person. I went to see my husband. He had been abandoned by his mistress and their son, and had gotten ill. I asked him whether he wanted to come back to me and told him that I would take care of him. He was very surprised and regretful, and agreed to come back. A broken family was thus restored.

There were over 100 people who began practicing Dafa after seeing the changes in me. My husband was also learning the practice without first telling me. He had a gallstone the size of a thumb but it disappeared after he began to practice.

Falun Dafa Is Miraculous

My little grandson had an immunization injection at his kindergarten one day and his arm was swollen. It must have been very painful because he was crying loudly. I was doing the Falun Dafa exercises next to him and he said, “Grandma, teach me!” Thus, I taught him. Only a moment later, he said happily: “It doesn't hurt anymore! It doesn't hurt anymore! Teacher has made my arm well!”

The next day at kindergarten, he was playing as usual, but many other children were still in pain. Some had a bandage on their arms and others were crying. Some children asked him, “How come your arm doesn't hurt?” My grandson said, “Because my grandma taught me to practice Falun Dafa and then it stopped hurting.” All the little children thus wanted to learn from him. He said, “I haven't even learned the whole thing yet.” They surrounded him for a long time and didn't want to leave.

After these children said they wanted to learn the exercises, their celestial eyes were opened. Some children saw that in Teacher's photo, there were three rows of six big srivatsa symbols in front of Teacher's chest and countless small srivatsa symbols all over Teacher's body; some saw that practitioners have Falun in their abdomens; some saw that when practitioners did the “Falun Standing Stance” exercise, some were holding mountains, some were holding trees, some were holding lotus flowers, and some were holding Faluns.

Another time, my grandson had a very high fever. He wouldn't sleep with his mom, but wanted to sleep with me. I read Teacher's Fa to him and after a short while, he stood up and said, “Grandma, I don't have a fever anymore!” These kinds of things happened many times.

I was on a public bus one day in March 2002. Suddenly my right leg felt like a bone had fractured. It was very painful and I couldn’t walk. A kind person took me to my friend's house. I laid in bed for three days and continued to study the Fa. I was able to get out of bed on the fourth day and was able to walk freely after two weeks. I knew it was Teacher's compassionate care for me.

While I was boarding a ship on September 29, 2002, my right foot slipped into a small gap between two metal plates. My entire leg was stuck. A young man tried to get it out, but couldn't. Another young man came to help and together they were able to pull it out. It was badly injured, from the toes to the upper leg, the knee cap especially. A kind driver carried me to a fellow practitioner's home. The fellow practitioner studied the Fa with me and with her righteous thoughts, I was able to get out of bed after a week and everything was back to normal within two months. We again witnessed the miraculous power of Dafa.

I fell off a concrete platform more than one meter high in the early morning of January 30, 2009. My left knee was dislocated and I could not walk. I just did the sitting meditation and studied the Fa. After seven days, I was able to get out of bed with a walking stick. My third son came to see me and said a friend's son was very sick and in critical condition. He asked me to go see him at once. I looked at my injured leg and thought, “I am Teacher's disciple. Saving people is the most urgent thing.”

I took the 40-mile ride on the bus to my friend's house. His son had been making a living for his 3-member family by offering a motorcycle taxi service. He fell and was hurt. Later, his condition became worse and he stayed in bed for a long time. He became delirious and was incoherent. This young man had several relatives who were authoritative doctors in hospitals of the provincial capital. They tried all kinds of treatments, but he was not getting better. He was then sent home and his family pretty much felt hopeless about his condition.

I knew that he was a good and honest person. I told his relatives, “If you sincerely recite 'Falun Dafa is good!' and 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!' it will help him.” I also told them the facts about the CCP's persecution of Falun Dafa. I stayed at their home and sent forth righteous thoughts to clear the environment and the evil factors around him. A week later, he regained consciousness and was able to recite “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” Then he was able to get out of bed and walk, and soon everything was back to normal.

Many of his relatives, friends and neighbors witnessed the miraculous power of Dafa, and more than a dozen people quit the Communist Party and its associated organizations. Many of them remembered that saying the words, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” can save people's lives.

While I was walking down the street around 8 p.m. on November 21, 2010, I was hit by a bus that was traveling very fast. I passed out immediately and was in the hospital when I woke up. The doctor said: “Your head has been injured and you've bled a lot. You've also lost blood around your eyes and mouth. The right side of your face is badly swollen. Your lower right leg has a bone fracture and there are three broken ribs on your right side.”

In the beginning, I felt dizzy and nauseous, and sometimes I fell unconscious. However, after five days my mind was clear, so I asked to go home. I was not able to move around when I got home, and fellow practitioners came to help me. Because I could not move, I had to use a container to urinate. One time I wasn't careful and the urine got on the bed. I enlightened that I should get out of bed to use the restroom. The next day, I sat up, put my feet on a small stool on the ground and just stepped left and right. At the same time I said, “Walk with Teacher and walk well the last part of Fa-rectification.” Just like this I started to get out of bed. After three weeks, I was able to walk freely without using a walking stick. When I was in the hospital, the doctor told me that the treatment would cost 50,000 yuan and even then I may not recover completely. However, I was fine after three weeks without undergoing medical treatment. Again I witnessed the miraculous power of Dafa.

Before I started practicing Falun Dafa, the hospital had pretty much told me to go home and wait for death. I was blessed to find Dafa and Teacher saved my life! I suffered many tribulations after the persecution began in 1999, but I've been able to make it through with Teacher's help and care. These sixteen years of life were given to me by Teacher. I've shared my stories because I want people to be able to distinguish good from evil, and right from wrong, to keep “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” in their minds all the time. I also urge all Chinese people to quickly quit the CCP and its associated organizations, and draw a clear line between themselves and the evil party so that they can have a beautiful future.
