A Retired Teacher Becomes a Practitioner after Witnessing the Power of Falun Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) My cousin is a retired teacher. I have told her frequently that Falun Dafa teaches people to be kind. I also told her that ordinary people are prejudiced against Dafa and Dafa practitioners because they were deceived by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Having been instilled with the propaganda and slander of the CCP, my cousin was dubious of what I told her even though she had heard about how miraculous Dafa was and how Dafa practitioners have benefited. Not long ago she witnessed the mighty power of Dafa herself and became a practitioner.
On February 2, 2012 of the Lunar calendar, I visited my cousin when I learned that her granddaughter Maomao was sick. She had been drowsy because of a high fever and had not eaten for three days. The whole family was in an anxious state. My cousin sat on a couch crying while Maomao's father was nervously talking about transferring her to the Provincial Subsidiary Hospital before it was too late. My niece urgently argued “Maomao will need to go through all the procedures again if transferred to a new hospital, and we are not sure if it will do her any good.” My cousin told me that the child had been on intravenous medication for three days without any improvement, and she was unable to drink or eat.
I held Maomao in my arms and sent forth righteous thoughts for her. She cried and struggled at first and she gradually calmed down and became quiet in my arms. Surprised by this scene, the whole family suddenly stopped their arguments. I had her watch Master' s lecture with me, and she fell asleep a few minutes later. When my cousin wanted to put her in bed after the first lecture, I said to her, “Let her sleep here and listen to more lectures. She will benefit from it.” My cousin asked, “How does she listen when she's asleep?” I smiled and replied, “Her main spirit is still awake.” My cousin walked away with a doubtful look. My niece whispered to me, “Aunt, I heard about Dafa before, but I am really surprised at this miracle. Will it cure Maomao's disease?” I smiled at her and said, “Of course it will as Dafa is miraculous! Master helps us cleanse our bodies in order to practice cultivation. Any disease can be cured by Master.” My niece walked away happily.
More than one hour had passed and Maomao suddenly yelled after the second lecture, “I want something to eat.” My cousin quickly ran to us. The child already awoke and jumped to the floor from my arms. She looked like she had never been sick for the past three days. The whole family was very excited. My niece hurried to make dinner and her husband also helped her in the kitchen. My cousin poured a glass of water for Maomao, and everything was back to normal. The whole family was stunned by this experience, and they indeed realized the miraculous power of Falun Gong!
I told them about my own experience at dinner. I used to have a lot of health problems. I couldn't even get out of bed when it was serious. All my diseases disappeared after I began practicing Falun Gong. I have not taken any medicine for the past ten-plus years, and I am healthy and energetic. I have also become more good natured and willing to help others, and more harmonious with my family and neighbors. After dinner my cousin quietly took me aside and apologized for her suspicious and disrespectful attitude toward Dafa.
I used my own experiences to illustrate the greatness of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. From Maomao's experience, my cousin also witnessed the miraculous power and grace of Dafa. After discussing with her husband that same night, they both decided they wanted a copy of Zhuan Falun and they then started practicing Falun Gong.
