(Minghui.org) I would like to express my gratitude to our compassionate and great Master and Falun Dafa for saving my life!
My name is Chunbo, and I am 35 years old this year. I live in Hongxing Township of Acheng District in Harbin City. I am an average farmer. When I was 30 years old, one day while working outdoors, I suddenly had a very bad headache and could not move. The moment I started moving, I felt nauseous. The doctor diagnosed me with a malignant brain tumor. The tumor was growing on the stem between the two hemispheres of my brain. The doctor said that my condition was terminal: Even if I went for an operation to have the tumor removed, I would only live for 3 to 5 more months at most. My mother was very sad and kept crying. My relatives also sighed in resignation at my certain death. As I am their only son, my parents did not want to watch me die soon, even though they knew that the operation could not totally cure me. Thus, they sold their house, land, livestock, and car to get the money to pay for my operation. After the operation, I still had to take medication every day.
After the operation, my face became deformed. My mouth was crooked and slanted to one side. My teeth became misaligned. The iris of my right eye became greyish and blurry, and the eyeball was bloody red. Pus and blood kept flowing out of my eye. The right side of my temple also collapsed. I had difficulty controlling my limbs and was not aware of temperature changes. My speech was slurred, and my whole body kept shaking. I was bedridden. My wife became our family's sole bread winner.
In order to make a living, our whole family moved to a neighboring village to be near my third aunt. I soon ran out of medication, and my family went to get more. The doctor said, “There's no point in him taking more medicine. It would just be a waste of money. Nothing can help him now.” My whole family was devastated.
My aunt’s sister-in-law is a Falun Dafa practitioner. She suffered from two terminal diseases, but she recovered miraculously from her hip bone disease and breast cancer through cultivating in Falun Dafa. Having witnessed the miraculous healing effects of Falun Dafa, my aunt asked this lady to show me the exercises and explain how to practice. My aunt told the lady, “Chunbo’s condition is very severe. We do not hope for him to fully recover, but we feel that he is too young to die. Each day he lives is another day he can be with his family. I beg you to teach him how to practice Falun Dafa.” My aunt’s sister-in-law asked me if I sincerely wished to practice Falun Dafa. I answered, “Yes.” Thus, she began to show me how to practice.
Later, two other practitioners also came. The three of them came very early every day and patiently showed me the exercises. They led me to read Zhuan Falun with them. In the beginning, when I was doing the exercises, my body would shake and my head felt like it was spinning. My speech was slurred when I tried to study the Fa. I would also often miss lines. Sometimes I would even drop the book. But they never gave up on me. I was deeply moved by their kindness. Their patient encouragement helped to steady my determination to continue cultivation.
When I had only been practicing for two days, my uncle and grandfather came to stop me, as they were deceived by the lies and rumors broadcast by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on TV to slander Falun Dafa. They said they would not allow me to practice. After spending so much money, I still had not recovered, they noted, so how could Falun Dafa cure me? In my heart, I understood that Falun Dafa is a practice that requires practitioners to emphasize moral values and be kind, and that it follows the universe's highest principles and teaches one to pay attention to heart and mind nature. Thus, I made up my mind to practice Falun Dafa. I believed in Master and Dafa.
Perhaps it was my sincere wish to practice and my righteous thoughts toward Dafa that moved the heavens. After practicing for 12 days, a miracle happened. I regained the feeling in my right eye. The reddish eyeball was no longer red. My stiff tongue was much softer, and subsequently I could speak properly. My speech kept getting clearer. I kept studying the Fa and doing the exercises, and in a few months, I fully regained my eyesight. My mouth was no longer slanted, and my collapsed temple also looked normal. I could take care of myself and help my mother wash clothes and blankets. In the afternoon, I could heat up food for my child. I could also mop the floor and do chores.
Five years ago, the doctor gave me a death sentence. Compassionate Master saved me, and I have been practicing for 5 years now. Without taking any medication, I've recovered so well. One day, my relative met the doctor who had treated me. When the doctor heard that I was still alive, he was shocked. He said that it was a miracle and was really amazed.
After seeing the positive changes in my physical and emotional health, whenever my mother met anyone, she would say, “Falun Dafa is so miraculous! My son was given a second lease on life.” Once my uncle and grandfather heard that I fully recovered after practicing Falun Dafa, they no longer believed the lies fabricated by the CCP to slander Master and Dafa. Not long ago, my grandfather was diagnosed with severe heart disease. Then, he also started to practice Falun Dafa. Later, my uncle was diagnosed with kidney stones; he could no longer do chores due to his sore back. He came to my house and said that he also wanted to practice Falun Dafa. He asked the three fellow practitioners who had helped me, “Could you also show me the exercises and how to practice? My nephew recovered from such a severe illness. My illness is minor in comparison.” Now my uncle and grandfather are very diligent in their practice. We frequently phone each other and talk about our cultivation experiences.
