[Selected Submission] Immersed in the Buddha-light of Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) The 17th day of the Chinese New Year 1996 was unforgettable for me, as this was the day when I started to practice cultivation in Falun Dafa.
I. Thousands of Years of Waiting
I became a victim of the Cultural Revolution when I was ten years of age. My mother could not stand the sudden disaster and fell ill and became bedridden. At only 10 years old, I had to support her when she had to stand on a platform in front of several hundred people and accept criticism.
At school, I suffered a lot of discrimination from teachers and classmates. After I got married, my husband and I lived in different cities. For 10 years, I raised our child by myself while working full-time. I had all kinds of physical ailments, including cataracts, migraines, and lower back pain.
In my 30s, I often had blurred vision. My husband urged me to see a doctor, and the diagnosis was congenital cataracts.
In 1995, my husband found me a qigong master to cure my illness. In 1996, that qigong master told me, “Falun Gong is very good. You should practice Falun Gong.” I immediately decided to practice Falun Gong as soon as I heard the name. The qigong master helped me get a copy of Zhuan Falun and Master Li's portrait. Then, I started practicing Falun Gong on the 17th day of the Chinese New Year in 1996.
I finished reading Zhuan Falun in two days. I read and practiced as soon as I had time. I almost forgot about the cataracts.
Over 20 days later, I woke up one morning but couldn't open my eyes – they were sealed by something sticky. I washed my eyes with clean water over and over again until they felt very cool and comfortable. I didn't know that Master had completely cleared out the root cause of my cataracts. I didn't realize it until a few days later when I noticed that my eyes had completely recovered.
I knelt down in front of our esteemed Master's portrait and cried. I didn't know what to say except repeatedly, “Thank you, Master!” In over 20 days, my more than 40 years of congenital cataracts and other ailments had miraculously disappeared.
II. Master Adjusted My Brain
From the beginning, I was able to enter into tranquility as soon as I conjoined my hands, and experienced the same state as described in Zhuan Falun, “You should feel wonderful and very comfortable as though you are sitting inside an egg shell; you will be aware of yourself practicing the exercise, but you feel that your whole body cannot move. ” (Zhuan Falun, Lecture Eight)
I had very poor memory prior to cultivation practice. One day, between sleep and awake, I saw Master. Master told me in a dream, “Your brain has an illness. I want to treat you, but I'm afraid you will be unable to stand it.” I remembered Master's Fa in Zhuan Falun, “It is because their brains have illnesses that need to be treated. One will be unable to stand it if one’s brain is worked on. Therefore, one must be put into a state of anesthesia or become unconscious.” (Zhuan Falun, Lecture Two) I said to Master cheerfully, “Master, I won't be afraid.”
As soon as these words came out of my mouth, I saw Master raising His hands and shooting two dark blue light beams toward me. I immediately felt pain in my head as if it were cracked open. I held my head and shouted, “Master, I cannot stand it anymore.” Master instantly pulled back His hands. I woke up with a sharp headache, which faded within half an hour. From then on, I never had this dimmed consciousness again, but instead was very alert.
III. The Fa Saves People with a Predestined Relationship
One day in 1998, the Wang couple stopped by my home. Mrs. Wang said, “My cholecystitis has recurred.” I said, “I used to have cholecystitis and cataracts, but they both disappeared after I had practiced Falun Gong for 20 days. Why don't you practice with me?” Her face lit up and she said, “Sure.”
I told her some cases where Dafa miraculously cured people's illnesses. She wanted to learn the exercises right away, and she was able to do the double-lotus easily.
I gave her Zhuan Falun and the exercise instruction video tape, and she said happily, “My gallbladder doesn't hurt anymore. It feels great.”
The next morning, Mrs. Wang called me at around 6:00 a.m. and told me excitedly, “I saw Master Li last night as soon as I sat down in meditation. Master was wearing a yellow cassock. He was sitting in the double-lotus position and His hands were conjoined. He circled around me once and stopped right across from me.” I was very excited too and wholeheartedly wished her the best.
I hadn't seen Mrs. Wang since the persecution started in 1999. I ran into her several years later and she was even more pretty. I asked her if she was still practicing cultivation, she nodded and we both smiled.
IV. Alcoholic Gains a Second Life
I had a coworker who was an alcoholic. When he wasn't drinking alcohol, he was shaking and looked pale. He was extremely skinny, his hair was brown and looked like dry grass, and his back was crooked. I said to him, “I would practice Falun Gong if I were you. Only Dafa can save you.” He just smiled and didn't say anything.
A few days later, I ran into him and said hello. He looked like he was in great pain and begged me, “Please help me.” I said, “Only Dafa and Master can save you. If you practice Falun Gong from now on, Dafa will surely save you.” I told him some wonderful stories of Dafa curing people's illnesses. He immediately told me he wanted to practice. I gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun and an exercise instruction videotape and told him, “If you indeed want to practice cultivation, you must follow Master's words and be determined to quit drinking alcohol.”
Soon after he started practicing Falun Gong, he came to my office and asked me, “How come I feel like I'm in the air as soon as I do the meditation?” He said he was afraid, but I told him, “Don't be afraid. Just practice cultivation with a calm mind. It's a good thing.”
About three months later, he saw me from afar and shouted to me, “Look at my hair!” Wow, during these three months, his dry brown hair had changed to black and shiny, he gained weight, his complexion became rosy, and his back wasn't crooked anymore. He looked like a totally different person than he was three months ago. My eyes were moist and I said repeatedly in my heart , “Thank you, Master!”
V. Policeman Blessed after Learning the Truth
In 2002, I told a woman about Dafa's wonderfulness and how I benefited from cultivating in Dafa, and clarified the facts to her about the staged Tiananmen “self-immolation.” She became very sympathetic toward Falun Gong. She told me that her husband was a policeman, and he was about to lead a team to Beijing to arrest practitioners. I asked her to tell her husband to never commit crimes against Dafa disciples, and that Dafa disciples are all good people who follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She went back and told her husband not to participate in the persecution of Dafa practitioners. Her husband understood the truth and told her before he left, “I hope I do not run into any Dafa disciples in Beijing.” With his good thought, indeed he did not arrest a single Dafa disciple in Beijing.
Miracles happened on his way back. When his police car was on the expressway, nobody noticed that a wheel had fallen off. The car continued running with only three wheels at high-speed, but nothing happened. Suddenly, a large, loaded truck stopped in front of the car, it was so abrupt that he had no time to brake. Just before the car was to go under the truck, the truck suddenly started running again quickly, and a disaster was averted. Because this policeman had treated Dafa properly, he escaped two dangerous situations in one trip.
