(Clearwisdom.net) On the Minghui/Clearwisdom website, many accounts of Falun Gong curing people's chronic and terminal illnesses have been published. Many of the practitioners in these accounts are in mainland China, so to protect them from being persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the editors generally omit their names and addresses.

Falun Gong practitioners in this article have all chosen to use their real names. They were submitted between January 2 and 6, 2012.

Ms. Pi Zhong of Chongqing

Ms. Pi Zhong, 60, is from the Hechuan District in Chongqing, Sichuan Province. She first obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun in 1997, and she was immediately drawn to the content presented in the Fa. Shortly after beginning to practice Falun Gong, her chronic nephritis, headaches, pain in her eyes, back pain, and other illnesses disappeared. She used to take large amounts of medication, and after undergoing surgery to treat breast cancer, she had lost hope for life and was depressed. Ms. Pi is now free from illness, and she is cheerful and in a good mood everyday. She feels fortunate to practice Falun Gong, and she feels that she is the happiest person. (January 6, 2012)

Ms. Wang Lianrong of Liaoning Province

Ms. Wang Lianrong of Donggang, Liaoning Province, said: “I began to practice Falun Gong at the end of 1998. Prior to cultivation, I had many illnesses, took medicine every day, and visited the hospital often. I suffered from severe headaches, so I would have to lay in bed with my eyes closed when I got those nauseating headaches. I had to rely on medicine to cope with the condition. I also had lower back pain, osteoarthritis of the spine, sinusitis, colitis, and diabetes. Those illnesses had tortured me to the point of wanting to end my own life. For years, I felt my life was very difficult and painful.

“Shortly after practicing Falun Gong, my illnesses were all gone. I no longer had to take any medication. It is just as the Falun Gong practitioners often describe it: a body free of disease. My spirit and mood improved, and my weight increased from 90 pounds to 110 pounds. I followed Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to cultivate myself. I considered others before acting, and people said that I had changed. Many people came to know Dafa and the goodness of Dafa. They heard of Dafa's blessings, and many of them became practitioners themselves.” (January 6, 2012)

Mr. Yang Shengsong of Hubei Province

Mr. Yang Shengsong is a former teacher at Fenlu Township Middle School in Huangmei County, Hubei Province. The following is his account: “I started practicing Falun Gong in July 1999. At that time, my goal was to obtain a healthy body so that I would have more energy at work and improve my quality of life. Prior to practicing Falun Gong, I had tuberculosis, heart disease, neurosis, stomach ulcers, rheumatoid arthritis, lumbar disc problems, prostatitis, and rhinitis, among other health problems. I often had severe headaches, insomnia, and general weakness. I was irritable and unable to tolerate others, and I had a hard time getting along with others at home and at work.

“After practicing Falun Gong, both my body and mind were purified, and my illnesses were gone. I realized the grandness of this Fa, because it is neither an ordinary exercise nor some simple activity. It emphasizes the cultivation of one's morality and mind so that practitioners may harmonize themselves with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the nature of the universe. Therefore, I follow the Fa, I care less about fame and material gain, I stay away from had habits, I treat others kindly, and I search within whenever there is a conflict. I don't retaliate when others mistreat me, I have a bigger heart, I have become more tolerant of others, and I have stopped being attached to small matters. I constantly expect myself to become a better person.” (January 5, 2012)

Ms. Huang Lixia of Hubei Province

Ms. Huang Lixia is an accountant at Puai Hospital in Anlu, Hubei Province. Prior to practicing Falun Gong, Ms. Huang had stomach problems, high blood pressure, and heart disease. She had been taking medication for years. Because of her heart problem, she often lost consciousness and had a hard time taking her child to and from school.

In July 1999, Ms. Huang started to practice Falun Gong. After just one morning of doing the exercises, she felt light and relaxed all over. She felt the goodness of Falun Gong from her heart and decided to continue.

Through the exercises and cultivation, all of her illnesses have disappeared. Ms. Huang obtained a healthy body, her family members no longer worry about her health, and happiness and harmony fill her home. (January 3, 2012)

Why do Falun Gong practitioners in mainland China still remain steadfast in their belief despite the CCP persecution? Why do they persist in telling the public the facts about Falun Gong? It is because many practitioners personally benefit by practicing Falun Gong, and they want more people to benefit from it.

The above are just a few examples received in a matter of about five days. There are many similar accounts, and we will continue to share them with our readers.

These people are only maintaining faith in their belief and sharing the benefits of the practice—a basic human right. They wish to bring about a good future for the Chinese people. Such selfless and kind people should not be persecuted, so let us help them.
