A Family Obtains the Fa and a New Life
(Clearwisdom.net) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. Before that, I had a blood vessel tumor in my right leg. My doctor didn't recommend surgery to remove the tumor because it could result in further complications. To get rid of the pain of the condition, I asked the doctor in my village to take some blood out to relieve the blood stasis in my lower leg caused by the slow circulation. I tried various methods to get well, such as praying in the Buddhist temple, practicing other types of qigong and reading many books and magazines about healing, but none of these worked for me. One day in 1996, a colleague handed me a copy of Zhuan Falun and said, “You should read this book carefully and practice Falun Gong as it is particularly effective in healing and fitness.” I started learning Falun Gong.
Since then I studied the Fa and practiced the Falun Gong exercise every day and set up a practice site in my home. An older woman in her sixties also came to join us in the practice. After practicing for a while, I understood Zhuan Falun to be a good book, a precious book guiding people to practice, eliminate impure thoughts and purify their heart. I understood that illnesses are due to karma, which we need to repay. Soon the pain in my leg went away and I felt extremely comfortable. I really felt wonderful without any illness. I didn't expect that Master would save an ordinary person like myself. I was so touched that I could not hold my tears.
After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, we stopped practicing Falun Gong due to fear and lack of understanding from the Fa, and started living like ordinary people again. One day in 2007, I met a fellow practitioner whom I had known before and she encouraged me to resume practicing. With her help, I started practicing Falun Dafa again. I am so grateful that Master didn't give up on me. Since then, I have been doing the three things well in the manner that Master has asked us to.
My mother-in-law didn't practice Falun Dafa again after the persecution started. One day in 2008, my child's uncle called to tell us that my mother-in-law couldn't walk and asked me to take her to the hospital. My mother-in-law had suffered hyperostosis for about eight or nine years and she couldn't walk after the condition had worsened. When I saw her, she was crying so hard that she couldn't talk. She was unable to walk even with the help of a cane. She told me that she had blood in her urine for over a month. At first, she didn't pay attention to it and thought it might be her menstrual cycle. Later, she felt that something had gone wrong and so when she went to the hospital to check, she found out that it was uterine tumors.
The same night, my daughter, who is also a practitioner, and I shared with my mother-in-law about the wonderfulness of Dafa and read some cultivation stories to her. We also asked her to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness, Forbearance and Compassion is good.” She truly believed in Dafa and started to practice Falun Gong with us right away. The second morning, my mother-in-law happily informed me that the blood in her urine was gone and she didn't need a cane any more. She had never felt so comfortable in her life. She stamped her feet and said with tears in her eyes, “ See, my leg is really recovered!” My son, my daughter-in-law and my husband were all stunned when they witnessed her change overnight. Although they all know that Falun Dafa is good, they didn't think it to be so miraculous.
Since then my home environment has changed a lot. Three years have passed. My mother-in-law listens to Master's Fa lectures every day (she is illiterate). She never stops practicing Falun Gong. Her complexion has become rosy and her skin is soft and youthful. She is 78 years old this year, and she walks faster than young people. She is very healthy. She often looks at Master's picture with tears in her eyes and often says, “Falun Dafa is good and Master is good!”
Now her daughter-in-law, granddaughter and her daughter are practicing Falun Gong.
