Falun Dafa Has Benefited My Entire Family
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 5, 1994, my husband took his mother and my mother to attend one of Mr. Li Hongzhi's lectures while I stayed at home with my child. They brought home the book Falun Gong, and I read it. Though I did not fully understand the content, I felt really close to Mr. Li. Every day when my husband came home from Mr. Li's lecture, he told me about what he had learned, and I became very curious about the practice. One day, he told me that Mr. Li gave everyone in the class a Falun. I felt that he was somehow different from me then, because he had a Falun and I did not.
Another day when they came home, my mother did the sitting meditation. When I saw her do the hand signs, I thought they were very beautiful and I had no words to describe how I felt.
My husband became a completely different person after practicing Falun Gong. He quit drinking and smoking. He worked harder and stopped arguing with me. He was always cheerful. Because of this, I decided to become a practitioner, too. However, I still felt that I was not the same as my husband because I had not attended the lectures and Teacher had not given me a Falun. Soon after that, I read in the book Zhuan Falun where Teacher said,
“I treat all practitioners, including those who are able to truly practice cultivation through self-study, as my disciples.”
Still, I wondered how I would know if Teacher had truly given me a Falun. The next morning, as I was waking up, I felt something spinning in my abdomen. I touched it and felt it turning. I joyfully realized, “Teacher has given me a Falun!”
As I continued to practice, Teacher continued to give me hints and encouragement. When I progress diligently, Teacher shows me Falun. The smallest one was the size of a walnut and the largest one was several meters in diameter. One time, I saw countless large Falun lined up on a highway. There were so many that I could not see the end. I stood there and looked at them for a long time. Sometimes, I dream that I am flying and the feeling is overwhelming. Many things have happened in my practice that non-practitioners would find hard to believe or understand.
After reading Zhuan Falun and Teacher's articles, I have come to understand the meaning of life, and all my questions in life have been answered. I found Teacher and Falun Dafa and am not lost anymore.
Before the persecution started in July 1999, our family was so happy. We did the exercises every day and no longer had to see doctors or take medicine. We were all truly healthy.
My mother began to practice Falun Dafa when she was 57 years old. Before that, she had failing kidneys and gallstones. She had been taking medicine for years and tried several other qigong practices. Nothing worked. When she was in despair, she attended Teacher's lectures. After just one lecture, she was able to get up out of her chair easily. Three months later, she had regained her health. Her kidneys functioned normally, her gallstones were gone and she no longer had bone hyperplasia. She had been reborn.
I often tell people that when a person can cure an illness that stumps modern medicine, by using an alternative method, he will consider it a valid method even if others reject it, and he will never give it up.
My father is a middle school teacher and was a typical atheist. However, seeing the miraculous recovery my mother experienced, he began to think about it and decided to become a practitioner too. He rejected the atheism that he had learned and believed in all his life. After he read the chapter about quitting smoking in Zhuan Falun, he found that cigarettes tasted foul and he could not smoke anymore. After thirty years of smoking, he quit after just one week of practicing Falun Gong. He quit drinking, too.
Now, everyone in my family practices Falun Dafa, from my 4-year-old nephew to my 81-year-old uncle.
Falun Dafa has brought wonders to my family. We deeply thank Teacher for his grace, and we all have strong faith in Dafa.
