What is the Fa?
I am a 73-year-old woman who began practicing Falun Dafa in 1994. When I first began practicing, I usually went to the riverside to practice with fellow practitioners. We also listened to tapes of Master Li's Nine Lectures. I always heard fellow practitioners say, “Listen to the Fa.” However, I didn't know what they meant by that. Fellow practitioners told me, “Words from Master Li are the Fa.” While listening to Lecture Two, I saw a shining light that led me to a new place along the river to listen to the Fa. When I began listening to Lecture Seven, I felt dizzy. As I continued to listen, my dizziness disappeared. I followed other practitioners and we practiced together. After about a month, I experienced some reactions of healing sickness. Previously, I suffered from dizziness, nephritis, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases. However, not long after my practice began, I became healthy.
The following year, I was meditating by the riverside and took out the book Zhuan Falun. I suddenly became tearful because I was illiterate. I asked for Master’s help to learn to read Dafa. I closed the book and began the meditation. It started to snow, and the snowfall became heavier and heavier. After a while, I heard a boy’s voice, “There’s no snow beside her!” After I finished meditating, I opened my eyes. I saw that there was no snow in a 30 cm. (1 ft.) radius around me, and none on my body either.
When I returned home from the river, I came upon a young man. I asked him to teach me to read Zhuan Falun. That's how I began to learn words and Dafa. I later attended the group study. While fellow practitioners were reading the book, I used my finger to point to each character, and thus learned to read.
After a year, I was able to recognize almost every word in the book. On one occasion, while in mediation, I saw a big Buddha in a shining yellow cassock. I knew it was Master encouraging me to practice diligently. From then on, I was firm in my belief in the practice of Falun Dafa.
Brainwashing Center Could Not Destroy My Belief
The police came to my home in 2002, and tricked me into going with them to identify someone. However, they actually took me to a brainwashing center. Four officers took turns trying to persuade me to give up my belief in Falun Dafa. I told each of them that Falun Dafa teaches people to be good and asks them to behave according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I also told them how I became healthy and disease-free after starting to practice Falun Dafa. By 8:00 p.m., they realized that they could not change my mind, so they let me go home.
Paralyzed Husband Walks after Reciting “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is Good”
At my suggestion, my husband started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. Before that, he had heart disease, angina, diabetes, hypertension, and rheumatism. He could not live without his medications. After he listened to Lecture Two, he stopped taking them. He then became healthy. He practiced for four years, until 1999, when the persecution of Falun Dafa began. At that time he stopped because he believed the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda, and his mind was poisoned by the lies. I encouraged him to keep on practicing and not to listen to the CCP lies about Falun Dafa. He wouldn't listen to me, and said some bad things about Master and Dafa. After about six months, all his former diseases returned.
My husband had a stroke in 2004. He could no longer talk, but he could move his arms and legs. After being hospitalized for 25 days, he couldn't even move his arms and legs and he became paralyzed. The doctor said that the medicine was not effective and there was no cure for his condition. He suggested that the doctors not treat him and just let him to die.
On the 26th day, I took my husband home. He stayed at home, paralyzed, for about six months. I said to him, “How silly you are! You had those severe diseases before and became healthy without taking any medicine. Don’t you believe you benefited from practicing Falun Dafa? Why do you believe the lies and propaganda on TV and in the newspaper?” I also told him, “You must declare that you quit the CCP and that all the bad things you said against Falun Dafa are invalid. That way, you will be safe. Would you like to do that?” My husband agreed and wrote the declaration with his trembling hands. I asked fellow practitioners to have it posted on The Epoch Times website.
One day, he had a heart attack and he was in a great deal of pain. He cried, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good!” The next day, he could walk around. What a wonder! He had been paralyzed for six months and the doctors could offer no treatment. Could a normal person be cured like that? From then on, he was able to walk by himself. It has been six years. I always tell my husband’s story to clarify the truth to other people. I ask them to remember that, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good.”
Family Members Who Remember “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is Good” Are Protected During Disaster
My family members have benefited from my Falun Dafa practice as well. I have three sons and one daughter. I always tell them the facts and ask them to remember, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good.” They have been able to accept this and have benefited greatly. My daughter started learning Falun Dafa three years ago. My sons had doubts at first, but after experiencing some things, they now believe “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good.”
My second son once had a sudden cerebral vascular accident. He fainted and was taken to the hospital. He was in a coma for a week, and even after he woke up, he stayed in intensive care. He was in a dangerous condition for a month. Doctors suggested he undergo a craniotomy. One day, I went to the hospital to care for him. I said to him loudly, “I will read you nine words. Please remember, ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good.’ You will be fine if you say these words. Did you hear me?” “Yes, I will,” he replied. The next day, it was his wife’s turn to take care of him. My son told her, “Would you please read those words to me?” His wife said, “Your mother said that you have to read them yourself. Why do you ask me to do it? You should read them.” My son sat up a bit and read the words himself. The next afternoon, he recovered and left the hospital. From then on, he believed in Falun Dafa.
I always asked our youngest son to say “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good.” Several years ago, he worked as a taxi driver. One night, he drove a guest to another town. The weather was very bad—rainy and windy, with thick ice on the ground. It was dark as he drove along a road beside a large lake. There were many cars turned over on their sides. When he drove back that way the next morning, he saw cars upside down along the road. Cranes and policemen were everywhere. Several people had died. The scene was terrible. Whenever he recalled the experience, he was frightened. He felt that he benefited from repeating, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good.”
There are many similar examples. I hope that people won’t be poisoned by the lies told by the CCP. Please quit the Party, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers of the CCP. Repeat “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good” and you will have a bright future. You will be blessed and have good fortune. On the other hand, people who persecute Falun Dafa will get bad results.
