(Clearwisdom.net) A fellow villager I've known since I was young is now in his fifties. In the past he was constantly ill. Finally, on the brink of death, he realized that he had been disrespectful to Dafa in the past. He then sincerely recited, “Falun Dafa is good,” and he miraculously recovered!

This fellow villager worked hard to pay the tuition fees for his children’s education. His work involved hard physical labor, such as carrying rocks and cement blocks for long periods of time. As a result, he injured his lower back and was hospitalized many times. Moreover, he was diagnosed with several fractures of his vertebrae. The doctors at Huaxi Hospital held a consultation and concluded that he would be disabled even if they operated. He had to take medicine that had toxic side effects, and which caused his condition to become even worse. When I went to visit him, he had not been able to sleep for nine days due to the intense pain. He told me that he didn’t know what Falun Gong was, but had once followed others in cursing Falun Gong and burning Falun Gong brochures. Two other villagers who had done this had suffered from serious illnesses and become hunchbacked.

I knew he was experiencing karmic retribution, so I clarified the facts to him, and he seemed to truly believe it. I then gave him a Dafa amulet (1) and taught him to recite “Falun Dafa is good.” He sincerely realized his mistakes and wanted to correct them. From that night on, he was able to fall asleep.

When I met him again, it was in a market and he greeted me from far away, “Long time no see. Thank you so much for giving me the Dafa amulet and helping me quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliations. It saved my life.” He continued, “If you hadn’t told me those facts, I would have died. My family had already prepared burial arrangements for me. They shaved my head clean and had already dug my grave. The doctors neither dared to give me medicine or let me stay in the hospital, so they sent me home. However, I could not simply wait for death, so my family introduced me to a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, but I continued sincerely reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good.’ Since I met with you the last time, I've been able to sleep very well every night. Several months later, I gradually got better without knowing it. See, I’m not disabled at all and I have recovered completely. I didn’t become hunchbacked and I can walk easily and quickly.”

I said, “It was Falun Dafa that saved your life.” He replied, “Exactly. My coming back from the brink of death surprised many villagers. They have all come and asked me where I went to get cured. A dozen villagers who had the same illness as mine went to visit that doctor of traditional Chinese medicine after hearing from me, however, none of them was cured. This made me believe more firmly that it was Dafa that saved me. I appreciate Falun Dafa very much.”

Note: (1) Amulets– 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.
