My Mother's Secret to Health and Longevity
(Clearwisdom.net) My 102-year-old mother and I live in Changsha, Hunan Province. She has a ruddy complexion and a clear mind. She is healthy and able to do all the household chores. People always say that a healthy elderly person at home is a treasure. We are fortunate that my mother is healthy. The secret to her good health and longevity is her firm belief in Falun Gong. She often and sincerely says, “Falun Dafa is good.”
Older people generally cannot afford to take a fall, as it takes them longer to heal. My mother has fallen hard several times. On one occasion, she fell head first in a shoe store and hurt the back of her head. She bled a lot and passed out. While other shoppers were worrying, I quickly whispered in her ear to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” My mother gradually opened her eyes and whispered to me, “I said, 'Falun Dafa is good.' I am all right now.” The bleeding soon stopped and she claimed that she did not feel she had been injured, as if nothing ever happened. She has been protected by Dafa and can escape any danger.
To ensure she was all right, I took her to our local community hospital. A doctor there was very surprised at her condition and said, “An injury like this is very dangerous, even for a young person. How could this elderly lady escape being injured from such a hard fall?” I replied, “This is because Falun Gong's Master has protected my mother. I used to have cystitis and required surgery. I could not do housework at all. Bothered by the disease, I started practicing Falun Gong and the disease miraculously disappeared.” The doctor and others present all agreed that Falun Gong was amazing.
Another time when we celebrated my nephew's birthday in 2009, my mother lost her balance and fell to the fourth floor from the sixth floor. She bruised her face and sprained her arms. She recited, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” daily, and she soon recovered from the injuries.
My mother often pays respect to Master's photo to express her appreciation for repeatedly saving her life. She mentioned that her back was injured during childbirth some 70 or 80 years ago, but the pain vanished after she sincerely repeated, “Falun Dafa is good.”
My mother has taken good care of her Falun Dafa amulet (1). She always takes it off before bathing and puts it back around her neck afterwards. Her sincere belief in and respect for Falun Gong are the reason for her good health both mentally and physically.
Countless people have suffered from the lies instilled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) since the persecution began in 1999. My sister-in-law once fell on the frozen ground in an ice storm and broke her backbone. The operation cost her 30,000 yuan. In addition, she had to wear a steel plate around her waist to support her back. I told them that this retribution was attributed to their belief in the CCP, their hatred of Falun Dafa, and their objection to my mother wearing the Dafa amulet. I sincerely hoped they would understand the truth and abandon the CCP's slanderous propaganda. They were regretful after my clarifying the truth to them and they accepted the Dafa amulet I offered.
There is only a thin line between good and evil and blessings and misfortune. Falun Dafa is the Buddha Fa. Believing that “Falun Dafa is good” is a “good thought.” Keeping this good thought will surely bring you blessings and happiness.
Note: (1) Amulet – In China, practitioners sometimes clarify the truth by giving people something small to wear or cherish, bearing a few words reminding them of the goodness of Dafa.
