Tempering My Family's Hostility toward Dafa and Stepping Forward to Save Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) Undereducated, I have never composed any articles. Yet, with the understanding that composing an article is a matter of cultivation, I made up my mind to write about some things that have happened in my personal cultivation. I also wanted to write about cooperating with fellow practitioners to save sentient beings. I know I still have some human attachments to get rid of, but I nonetheless would like to share these experiences with the readers of the Minghui website.
Seeking the Tao
In the 1980s when qigong practice was very popular in China, I practiced a phony qigong. I even tried the Bigu fasting (going without food and water), but became malnourished and emaciated. I later sought salvation in Buddhism, but ended up with a mental disorder. I could hardly comprehend anything. I was sent to a mental hospital for treatment, which cost me nearly 10,000 yuan. I returned home when my condition improved, but I continued to take medicine for nearly one year. In my desperate search for the Tao, I paid high prices, but continued to reap nothing.
In 2004 a friend of mine visited me and told me some facts about Falun Gong. She said the practice keeps people healthy and fit. She did not know that I had mental problems. My family didn't want others to know about my mental disorder so they sent me to a mental hospital in another city, claiming that I was away to visit a relative. They saved themselves from being mocked by the neighbors for having a family member with a mental disorder.
I was convinced by what my friend said and asked her to teach me Falun Gong. At the time, my mind was void of any guidance and I was eager for a genuine Tao to enlighten my heart. During my hospitalization, doctors had emphasized that I must stay away from any qigong practices, including Tai Chi boxing. They said these practices were bound to worsen my mental problems.
My friend lived in another city and had to leave for home before she could teach me Falun Gong. So she introduced me to a Falun Gong practitioner from my village and directed me to go to her for the Falun Gong books and exercises. I followed my friend's advice and borrowed Zhuan Falun from the practitioner. When I read the line “Truly guiding people to high levels” in the first lecture, I perceived that this book was much more than just a qigong book. Master says,
“If they want to get healed, get rid of adversity, or eliminate their karma, then they’ve got to cultivate and return to their original, true selves. That’s how all the different cultivation ways see it. A person should return to his original, true self—that’s actually the true purpose of being human. So, once somebody wants to cultivate, they’d say his Buddha-nature has come out. That thought is the most precious, because he wants to return to his original, true self, he wants to break out of this level of ordinary people. ” (Zhuan Falun)
For so long had I sought a path of genuine cultivation. After so many frustrating and fruitless efforts, a great way unfolded in front of my eyes.
I read the book behind my husband's back, while taking care of our year-old grandson. One time, in the middle of the day when no one else was home, I read more than 100 pages. When I stood up I found that my body was so light that I could walk easily, like I was floating in the air. After I read the sections “Spirit Possession,” “Buddha Image Consecration,” “Attracting Demons in Qigong,” “Breeding Demons in Your Own Mind,” and “Bigu Fasting,” I realized that the cause of my sickness and that all of what I had practiced before was actually the work of malicious spirit possession. Master says,
“The reason is, it’s really hard when you want to do cultivation. There’s no way you’d succeed at true cultivation without my Law Bodies’ protection—the moment you stepped outside, maybe your life would be at risk.”(Zhuan Falun)
As I read further I found the teachings in the book truly meaningful, clear, and trustworthy. It warmed my heart like an old friend, so amiable that I could not hold back my tears. I was convinced that I had found the genuine path toward the great Tao. I regretted that I had gotten the book so late. Otherwise I wouldn't have tried any other practices and I could have saved myself from all the phony qigong. In the closing lecture Master says,
“So I’ll just say a few things in parting. I hope that in your cultivation that lies ahead you’ll go about things as a practitioner and truly keep cultivating. I hope that both our new students and veteran students are able to cultivate in Dafa, and have complete success! I hope that after you go back home you’ll seize the day to really cultivate.” (Zhuan Falun)
After I finished reading the book I placed it on a table, fell upon my knees, and, in tears of gratitude, bowed to Master. From then on I did what he taught by seizing each day to really cultivate.
Tribulations from My Family
Falun Dafa is great. When I borrowed the book from the fellow practitioner, she told me she would not teach me the exercises until I had read the book three times, but I simply could not wait to learn the exercises after I finished reading it the first time. I told her my aspiration. She wrote down the instructions for the exercises on a paper and taught me the movement of the exercises. When I went home that night, my husband asked me where I had been. I did not dare tell him the truth because of my previous mental disorder. My family had been agonized, and, in particular, my husband had borne the most to take care of me. It had truly been a heavy blow for him, so he was very worried that my mental disorder could come back again. He asked me, “Did you go to learn Falun Gong?” He knew that my friend had recommended Falun Gong to me. I thought, “I will tell him the truth now that he mentioned Falun Gong so explicitly. It is not right to do it behind his back.” I said, “You have a prophetic soul! I did go to learn Falun Gong.” My answer ignited his rage and he started to shout at me, uttering all the slanders against Falun Gong that he had learned from TV programs broadcast by the Chinese Communist Part (CCP). “I will leave you if your mental disorder comes back,” he shouted. His rage escalated and his words became increasingly abusive. Lying in bed, overwhelmed by the magnificence of Faluns that were rotating all over my body, I did not respond to him at all.
I told the fellow practitioner about the rotating Faluns all over my body. She said, “You truly have a profound predestined relationship to Dafa. With just one exercise, Master installed Falun and energy mechanisms in you.”
My son was also irritated by my practicing Falun Gong and tried stopping me with a disrespectful attitude. He reported to some of my relatives and continually disturbed me, threatening that he would break his blood tie with me if I persisted in practicing Falun Gong. All my relatives were against me—especially my father, who was a CCP member.
The day I removed the images of the CCP heads Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai from the wall of my home, my husband got furious. I did not even recognize him. Engulfed by his temper, he kicked me and tried beating me, but my daughter-in-law dragged him away.
The next morning when I was sitting on the sofa, he beat and kicked me right after he got up. My son and daughter-in-law, hearing the noise, were woken up and came to drag him away. That evening when my son and daughter-in-law were at work, I was lying in bed. The telephone rang. My husband picked up the phone. It was one of my relatives, who repeated the slanderous words of the CCP against Falun Gong. The relative wanted me to stop practicing Falun Gong. His words intensified my husband's hostility toward Falun Gong and he sprang to his feet and began to beat me. He held me against my bed and beat me. Then he dragged me out of the bed and beat me on the ground. He kicked me as he struck my head and face. I could hear the sound of his blows and felt my face heat up. It felt like my eyeballs were about to pop out. Then he dragged me out of the room into the yard and locked me out of the house. I thought of simply leaving home but was stopped by the thought that it might undermine the reputation of Dafa and Master. I went back, pushed the door open, and entered my home.
Although he exerted all his might and cruelty to beat me, I was free from any pain. Waves of heat circulated around my body. I knew Master was bearing all the pain for me. My tears of gratitude fell. In two days my husband beat me viciously three times. He beat me overall 12 times. Not knowing exactly how to cultivate, I simply tolerated it, with Master's teaching in Zhuan Falun in mind, “To be a practitioner you should, for starters, be able to 'not hit back when attacked, not talk back when insulted.' You have to endure.” Let me endure! It was like he could not stay with me in the same room. When his ferocity overtook him, he was like another person—consumed with madness, his eyes on fire with terrible anger, which might not be relieved even he if he beat me to death. He did not stop beating me until he was out of breath and became so tired that he could not lift his arms.
Due to his hostility toward my practicing Falun Gong, I could not step forward to do truth-clarification. I hid Zhuan Falun in a secret place, but he found it and burned it. He would beat me whenever he saw me doing the Falun Gong exercises, so I had to do them when he was sleeping at night. I began doing the exercises from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., daring not to turn on any lights or play the exercise music.
My husband's abuse and violence became an everyday routine for me. He could verbally abuse Falun Gong and Master for three hours without stopping. When I was sleeping at night, he would kick me out of bed. When I got back into bed, he kicked me out again. His anger grew to such a level that he sprang up, seized my hair, and hit my head against the wall. He did that many times. One day he vomited blood when he was beating me, but he did not stop until he was so tired that he could not lift his arms. But no matter how much he beat me, he could not make me waver in my faith in Dafa. I kept Master's teaching as a guardian of my heart, “I’ve finally obtained a true teaching, so if I don’t cultivate now, when would I?” (Zhuan Falun)
But how could I go on with my cultivation in Dafa now that he beat me every day? I had thought of leaving home but did not put it into action. I then moved to an orchard keeper's shelter far from my home, where I studied the Fa and did the Falun Gong exercises at night. During the daytime I went home to take care of my everyday duties. At the time, the only thing that I kept in mind was Master's teaching that a Dafa practitioner must be a good person to begin with. But I still could not escape my husband. One day he held me against the bed, hit me with a chair, and abused me like a mad man. My back was bruised, but I knew that Master bore for me all the pain. In his eagerness to save me, Master accepted me as his disciple and bore so many tribulations for me.
One year after I had moved to the orchard, I returned home. My husband still beat me like before. In the following three years he beat me more than 20 times. Each time he beat me he was as furious as a mad man, unleashing his violence at full scale, like he was trying to kill me. One night he strangled me with his hands, nearly suffocating me. He roared that he would find a rope to strangle me. Then he ran to the yard to find a rope but couldn't find one. He came back to me but was suddenly disabled and had to stay in bed, unable to move. I knew Master had saved me again. I told my son what he did to me, “When you were not home, your father almost strangled me to death. He tried to find a rope to strangle me with.” My son, having already learned the facts of Falun Gong and having withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations, said angrily, “He is too far gone. Mother, you can come live with us. Let's leave him home alone and he can do whatever he likes.” From then on my husband began to exercise self-restraint and he was less violent when he beat me—yet he still beat me sometimes. One day he confessed to me, “Do you think I really want to beat you? It is like an addiction that grows stronger when I get more violent. When it is really bad I could beat you to death.” I understood it was a symptom of possession by evil spirits.
Early on when he beat me, I thought he was helping me improve my xinxing, but he never stopped. A fellow practitioner sent me Master's new article, “Stop the Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts,” which made me realize the true cause of his violence against me. After that, when he beat me again, I began to send forth righteous thoughts. Previously I was not aware of how to cultivate and my mind was not stable, but I found that my righteous thoughts truly worked as he received karmic retributions for what he had done to me. I knew the divine beings who sided with Dafa were helping me. One afternoon he beat me again. That night he showed symptoms of a heart attack. Feeling bad, he went out alone and fell down. After sweating heavily he recovered. When he beat me, he abused Master. The next day he got a swollen mouth with some small blisters. He also got a cold sore in the back of his throat. He said, “A cold sore in the throat is serious.” In those nearly four years he had a hungry, lean, and burning look, and his spirit was as low as a dead man's. Looking back on those years, I know that Master was taking care of him all the time and hoped he could wake up soon, but he simply remained foggy-headed in his confusion.
Stepping Forward to Clarify the Truth with the Help of Fellow Practitioners
Learning about my situation, fellow practitioners from my Fa study group began to send forth righteous thought for me. They took turns to send righteous thoughts for the next month, without a break, to eliminate the evil elements that were manipulating my husband into beating me. Xiaolian (pseudonym), a practitioner who saw that I could not step forward for truth clarification, thought of an idea to solve my problem. With her husband, who did not practice Falun Gong, she established a small band that performed local traditional operas and invited me to join. She knew that I could play, so she created an opportunity for me to do truth-clarification that way. My husband was quite supportive of my performing in the band. She and I were the decision makers for the band, while other members who were not practitioners followed along. We performed only traditional operas, without any CCP elements. I realized that everything was arranged by Master and the band was actually set up for me. Thus, with the help of Master and fellow practitioners, I was able to break free of my family tribulations and devote myself to truth clarification, validating the Fa, and saving sentient beings.
We traveled around to find instruments for our band. That was merely an excuse, because our real intention was to clarify the facts about Falun Gong and save sentient beings. Wherever we went we worked together to talk to people about Falun Gong and the persecution. Sometimes we walked more than 50 km in a day, telling people we met the facts about Falun Gong. All of my friends within 10 to 15 km from us received informational materials and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party from us. We gave Dafa things top priority and played the opera so well that many villages in the surrounding areas invited us to perform for them. We performed to save people, whomever we might come across, wherever we went. When time was too limited for truth clarification, we at least left behind our sincere smiles.
Master saw our wish to save people and helped us each time. A village about 10 km from us invited us to perform for them. When we were there we tried to find opportunities for truth clarification. We first talked to the CCP secretary of the village, who agreed with me and withdrew from the CCP. We then talked to other village CCP committee members and the former secretary and helped them to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Our performance was so successful that many in the audience wanted to talk to us. I explained the facts while fellow practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts. In a short while, 22 people agreed to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. That was the first step I made on the path of assisting Master in Fa-rectification and saving people.
To begin with, as arranged by Master, I clarified the truth to people face to face. I gave out truth-clarification materials and copies of the Nine Commentaries. My heart was preoccupied with saving people. Whenever I walked out of my home, the first thing I thought about was saving people. Master saw my intent, and he arranged for people to come to me and listen to me.
I made use of all occasions—including funerals and weddings—to clarify the truth. One day a relative had a new baby. Many relatives and friends went to his home to celebrate. At the occasion I sang some Dafa songs to them, including “Wakening from a Dream” and “Seek the Truth.” They were very happy to hear m sing. I then clarified the truth to the guests at the celebration, table by table. I said, “Falun Gong practitioners are good people who believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, while Jiang Zeming, who launched the persecution and masterminded the fabricated self-immolation event on Tiananmen Square, is the worst. Falun Gong teaches people to be good and brings people good health. Its popularity grew so quickly because people like it, but it ignited Jiang's jealousy; he believed that Falun Gong would seize his power. The truth is, the founder of Falun Gong explicitly forbids his students from getting involved in politics and emphasizes on all occasions that Falun Gong is nothing more than a cultivation practice. Falun Gong represents the ultimate law of the universe and is the genuine Buddha Fa. The divine beings will not tolerate the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong. If you joined the CCP or its affiliated organizations, it would be best if you quit them now. You can do that under any name you choose, because it is your heart that the heaven values. Once you quit the CCP, you will be blessed by the heavens.” They agreed with what I said. When I met any children I said, “Falun Dafa enlightens your wisdom and makes you more intelligent. If you remember that 'Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,' you will study well at school.” I then asked them if they had joined in any of the CCP youth organizations, and they agreed to quit them. I helped more than 40 people seated at 4 tables to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliates. Some even told me I should bring them truth-clarification materials when I saw them again because I'd run out. The atmosphere at the celebration was friendly, joyous, and pleasant. I was very happy from the bottom of my heart.
Although I was in my 60s, I looked like I was in my 40s. When I clarified the truth, my face was radiant, which I knew was encouragement from Master. A lay Buddhist heartily admired the practice upon seeing the changes in me. “Falun Dafa is good,” he said. “Elder sister, you are doing a genuine cultivation practice!”
I clarified the truth at funerals. When my aunt passed away I went to her funeral to pay my respects. The funeral was attended by more than 50 people, including relatives and neighbors. An old lady asked who I was. I told her that I was the niece of the deceased. She said, “No wonder you were so moved at her passing away. I can see that your sorrow is from the bottom of your heart.” Everyone there had a very good impression of me. I then began to explain the facts to them. I said, “You are all my relatives and friends, whom I love most dearly. Now I will tell you a most important thing. Keep this in your mind: 'Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' If you remember that, the heavens will bless you.” I then told them that the self-immolation event on Tiananmen Square was fabricated by Jiang Zemin's regime. I also mentioned the rock found in Guizhou Province with Chinese characters foretelling the coming destruction of the CCP. I told them that it is the will of heaven that the CCP will be destroyed. All of them understood and withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
In the neighborhood of my village are two open markets. Practitioners from the several villages in my neighborhood cooperated very well as a whole body as we clarified the truth to the sales booths one by one. About seven practitioners gathered at the entrance of the market, clarifying the truth to the customers. Almost everyone there learned the facts regarding Falun Gong and quit the CCP. After several years of clarifying the truth at the market, we have created a friendly environment where we can openly clarify the truth without any obstacles or fear.
Next let me tell you three interesting experiences.
1. One day, another practitioner and I clarified the facts about Falun Gong to an onion peddler. I told him that practitioners believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, while the CCP promotes falsehood, treachery, and fighting. I also mentioned to him that the self-immolation event on Tiananmen Square was fabricated by the CCP to attack Falun Gong. He listened but disagreed with me, saying that he was a village officer and a Party member. We did not gave up and continued to talk to him, when more and more people came to him to buy his onions. We then turned to the buyers to tell them that the CCP would soon be destroyed by the heavens for all it had done against the heavens and the Chinese people. We said they would secure good futures if they quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Many buyers agreed and withdrew from the CCP. In less than 30 minutes all the peddler's onions were sold, while no one bought onions from two nearby vendors. I said to him, “Whenever we tell people the facts about Falun Gong, we bring blessings from heaven. You can tell because your onions sold out in such a short time. Falun Dafa is bestowing blessings upon you. Isn't that miraculous?” The practitioner with me then asked him to withdraw from the CCP. Finally he said, “Yes, I will,” and he was saved. After that, whenever he saw us again, he was very respectful and polite to us.
2. There was a watermelon vendor who had withdrawn from the CCP before. His business was booming as a result. Yet one day when I saw him, he had no customers. I went over to him with another practitioner. Just as we got there, people came to buy his watermelons. As we began to clarify the truth to them, more and more people came to him, making us, and him, very busy. He became soaked with sweat. In about an hour his wagon full of watermelons was empty. The watermelon vendor and his son were overwhelmed with happiness. This time we persuaded 48 people to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliates. From then on, whenever we went to the market to clarify the truth, he asked us to do it at his booth and rewarded us with free watermelons. I said to them, “This is a blessing from Falun Dafa. If you are supportive of Falun Gong, your business will do great.” Later, he even helped me in truth clarification. Other peddlers, witnessing the miracle of Dafa, asked us to come to their booths to clarify the truth.
3. Many people heard us explain the facts more than once since we began doing it in the market several years ago. I sent forth righteous thoughts and said to Master, “Master, I will go to save people today. Please collect only those who have never heard the facts regarding Falun Gong or who have not withdrawn from the CCP and send them to me. Please help me, Master.”
I went to the market to buy some apples from a vendor I had never seen before. I asked, “Where are you from? I have never seen you before.” He said, “This is my first time here. My home is about 10 km from here.” While buying his apples, I told him about Falun Gong and asked him to withdraw from the CCP. He acknowledged that he had been a member of the Communist Youth League when he was young. I said, “Brother, you are blessed. You are here to be blessed by heaven. Let me give you a pseudonym, Defu, which means 'being rewarded with blessings.'” He said, “I like the name. Yes, I will quit.” As I talked to him further about Falun Gong, more and more people came to buy his apples. They were men in their 30s whom I had never seen before. I said, “Falun Dafa is the law of the cosmos and its goal is to save people. Why is China plagued with so many natural and man-made catastrophes and misfortunes nowadays? They can all traced back to the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, which has incensed the heavens into destroying the CCP. To secure your futures, quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.” I then helped 12 of them to withdraw. His apples were soon sold out, while other apple vendors had very few patrons. I said, “Big brother, why have your apples sold out so quickly? It is because I am here telling people about Falun Gong, for which my Master is bestowing blessings upon you.” He was very pleased and said, “I know. You are truly like a minister of grace.”
One day we decided to take a long-distance bus home when it was too late to walk. We got on a bus full of passengers. Without hesitating, we naturally launched into a new round of truth clarification. The passengers listened to us attentively, until we got off the bus when we arrived at my village. A fellow practitioner said it was like performing an opera while the passengers were like our audience. Our coordinator, who studied the Fa well and was very eloquent, said, “From our village as the starting point, we talk about Dafa to everyone within a range of about 10 km.” We were like monks who were off wandering about while reciting Master's verses:
“He comes with Truth that gives him free reign
And travels the four seas with a free and easy spirit
The Fa’s principles spread throughout the world
His Fa Boat sets sail, loaded full with sentient beings ” (“Tathagata” from Hong Yin II)
To cover the necessary ground, we had to climb mountains and cross many roads, but we never felt tired. It was a brilliant experience, like floating in the air. Master was taking care of us all the time. Some people who initially refused to withdraw from the CCP could be motivated when they saw others do it. Some expressed their gratitude to us after they withdrew. One person refused to listen to me and took out his mobile phone to call the police. I told him that I was truly doing him a favor by telling him about Falun Gong. He put his phone back in his pocket, saying that he would also do me good in return. I once met five women doing embroidery work. They kindly gave me a glass of water. I gave each of them a pseudonym related to flower names and helped them withdraw from the CCP and its affiliates. One man resented hearing about Falun Gong, but was finally persuaded to withdraw after I walked with him for awhile. Everything has been done by Master, while what I possess is only a heart to save people. It is just as Master put it: “Cultivation is up to you, gong is up to the master.” (Zhuan Falun)
Valuing Fa Study
My truth clarification in the past several years has gone smoothly because I valued my Fa study as a fulfillment of my pledge that I made before the dawn of history. I have been waiting for tens of thousand years in this mundane world. Master says:
“This Great Law is able to rectify the colossal firmament and allows people to cultivate to Consummation-shouldn't you treasure an opportunity as rare and precious as this? And this is an opportunity that will be gone in an instant!” (“Shed the Human Mindset”)
Lest I fall behind in Fa-rectification, I found it hard to go a single day without studying the Fa. Every day I studied four lectures of Zhuan Falun, sometimes as many as eight. Even though I got up at 3 a.m. to study the Fa, I felt energetic during the day. My truth clarification truly worked, as the words and energy disintegrated the evil elements in other dimensions around my listeners. When I talked about Falun Gong, my heart was righteous, calm, and pure, without any distractions. Such a pure mindset and freedom from distractions are attainable only from the power of the Fa.
Later I changed the way I studied the Fa. Instead of reading so much at one time, I readl slowly, line by line, with my eyes and, above all, my heart, without any distractions. I felt that every word in the Fa was pinpointing my human attachments and resolving them instantly. One by one, I read each paragraph at least three times. I felt my human attachments and the bad elements in me become resolved. Studying cleanses me and strengthens my righteous thoughts. I did not go to the next paragraph until I was certain that my bad thoughts were disintegrated. I found it truly worked. I recently resumed studying the Fa as much as I could, like before. When I read the Fa, I was in a pure mindset and was free from any distractions. When there was any trace of distraction I would send forth righteous thoughts to get rid of it and it truly worked. I resumed doing that because of a dream that I had. In the dream I found many small silkworms all over the place, such as the streets and wild fields. I made many mat shelters to accommodate them. I fed them mulberry tree leaves, but I did not have enough. I tried to understand the meaning of the dream when I woke up as I was quite certain it was a hint from Master. I believer the silkworms represent the sentient beings in my world. There were so many of them, countless numbers. The mulberry tree leaves represented the Fa and the sentient being were in need of the Fa. In those days I studied the Fa so slowly, only two lectures pver more than ten days. That was not enough, as my sentient beings need to be fed as much Fa as possible. So I changed back to my previous way of Fa study and studied seven lectures in two days. I did it simply out of this enlightenment. Master says, “Different levels have different Laws that correspond to those levels. And at different levels the Law guides in different ways.” (Zhuan Falun) I just followed the path that Dafa pointed out to me.
Above are just some personal understandings about Fa study at my level. I just wrote it out to share with fellow practitioners.
My Husband Was Saved
In those years I kept clarifying the facts about Falun Gong to my husband. I did it whether he was happy or was ill and did not feel well. In the beginning his face was grim. I thought, “The old forces are doing all they can to push him down a dead end, but I will not give up on him. He is blessed for being my husband in this life and is supposed to obtain the Fa. I will not tolerate the old force's persecution of him. He will certainly benefit from my practicing Falun Gong.” With such conviction, I sent forth righteous thoughts for him six times each night.
As the Fa-rectification moves forward, evil elements in other dimensions are entirely eliminated. My husband underwent gradual changes. Last year I bought an MP3 player and uploaded onto it some songs and music composed by Dafa practitioners. He was in favor of the CCP's songs before. I played the MP3 and passed it to him, “Listen to it! You will like the songs. Every word of the lyrics will make big sense to your heart because it represents a new culture based on compassion.” He listened to it and said it was very beautiful. He had a habit of climbing the hill near our home every morning. When I asked him to allow me to go with him he was very happy. On our way I played the audio version of the Nine Commentaries and we listened as we were walking. After five days of that, I could sense that the communist elements in him were largely disintegrated. From then on, before he got up every morning, I played the Nine Commentaries and inserted the earphone in his ears, saying, “You just listen to it. Many sick people recovered after they listened to it.” I said that because he was very serious about his health. He listened twice to the audio materials, including the introduction to the divinely inspired Chinese culture, Dafa songs, Master's Fa lectures in Jinan City, Nine Commentaries, and Disintegrating the CCP Culture. This was all arranged by Master. By putting his arrangement into play, I perceived once again his painstaking effort to save people.
In May of this year I did not feel well, which was perhaps a test of my xinxing, and my husband did not feel well, either. One night when I was doing the meditation exercise he came in, sat down, and said, “Thank you. Thank you.” I did not reply to him because I was meditating. After a little while he said, “Falun Dafa is good. Falun Gong's Master is good.” He repeated that several times. Master purified his body right away; he hiccuped and hastily went to the toilet. When he came back, I was still meditating. He said, “I am very happy, very happy. I have never been so happy.” I put my legs down and saw that his face was as innocent as a child's. He said, “I saw Master.” I asked him what had happened. He said proudly, “I saw Master today, but you did not.” He then told me about the purification of his body, saying that he was feeling very well and was free from any illness. He had never felt so good in all his life. Gesturing, he said, “When I lifted my head, I saw two moons in the sky. They were like two intertwined rings. I think it was like that. Master was sitting on the moon in a yellow robe.”
Master had saved him totally. Now that the locks in his mind were undone, the malicious CCP atheism in his heart was resolved, and his resentment of Falun Gong was removed. He said, “Why should I stay in the CCP? I certainly will quit it. I will do that immediately.” He had quit the CCP a long time ago, but had never been so clear about its malice. It might be that he was so happy to be able to see through it that he further declared his cutting off from it before Master. I cannot hold back my tears when I come to this part: “Master, from my husband I see your mighty compassion and your painstaking effort to save sentient beings.” Step by step, Master paved the way for my husband, opening his celestial eye, and saving him in his entirety.” Now my husband is a happy man with a joyous face. He is very supportive of my truth clarification and saving people.
Master picked me up from hell, purging the imperfections in my head, and paving my path of returning to my home. I will certainly walk my path steadily and always be worthy of his compassionate salvation.
Fellow practitioners, let us be diligent in our cultivation together. We will do whatever Master tell us to do. We will value our Fa study, do it well with our hearts, and cultivate ourselves well. We will keep on saving people—as many as we can—and do well the three things until we return with Master to our home upon genuine fulfillment.
