(Clearwisdom.net) I am in my 60s and have been practicing Falun Gong for 11 years. Although my cultivation path has not been easy, with Master's merciful protection I have continued to cultivate.

On August 15, 2010, a near fatal accident occurred at the brick and tile factory that I own. Just after 3:00 p.m., I walked along the edge of the brick kiln to check the intensity of the heat coming from the furnace. After taking a few steps I noticed that the surface of the kiln sank a little. When I went a little further the bricks began to separate from underneath me, and I slipped and fell into the kiln. There was a loud crashing sound of bricks underneath me. The only thing stopping me from falling further into the kiln was one layer of asbestos tiles under my feet. Luckily, I was still holding onto the top of the kiln, but my lower body was stuck. The temperature was probably over one thousand degrees Celsius further on down.

A thought then flashed through my mind: I must get out of here. With that thought my whole body immediately rose up and I fell down the outside of the kiln. I crawled to my feet and shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!" I looked at myself and found that my shorts and shirt were partly burnt, and my legs appeared to be severely burnt. My feet were partially protected by my shoes.

I quickly went over to the nearby fish pond to clean myself off. My son later came and took me home. When he saw my burns, he was very worried and called for a doctor to examine me. The doctor gave me some injections for the next two days. I used this opportunity to tell him about Falun Gong and encouraged him to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which he ended up doing.

While I was recovering from the accident, I firmly cultivated my mind and continued to believe in Master and Dafa. I knew that because I was a practitioner, I would be all right. During the days that followed, many of my friends and relatives came to visit me. I was able to clarify the facts to them and helped each of them withdraw from the CCP. With Master's help, I turned this bad accident into a good opportunity to help save sentient beings.

My legs have now completely healed and there are no scars. My friends and relatives have all witnessed this miracle. Without Master's merciful protection, I would have surely been burned to death.
