[Selected Submission] Doctor: “This Is Simply a Miracle”
(Minghui.org) As this year marks the 20th anniversary of the public introduction of Falun Dafa, I wish to take this opportunity to send greetings to our great Master and share the benefits I have experienced as well as the elevation of my xinxing through practicing Dafa.
Master Pulled Me Back from the Brink of Death
I am 41 years old this year. I began practicing Falun Dafa in March 1999. Before I began the practice, I was constantly ill and by the age of 27, I suffered from many serious physical problems including inflammation of the lungs, a stroke, heart disease, hardening of the arteries, and gallbladder infection. On top of that, both of my thigh bones had become necrotic. I could not walk at that time, but after practicing Falun Gong, in three to four days time, a miracle happened. I could walk and my legs stopped hurting.
After practicing for four months, the Chinese regime launched its suppression of Falun Dafa and started to persecute practitioners fanatically. Later on, I was incarcerated for one year in a forced labor camp. As a result of the maltreatment I experienced in the labor camp, I developed breast cancer. My right breast was completely affected and the tissue of the entire breast had festered. Those in the provincial labor camp thought that I would not live for long. I was released after being detained for eight months.
Upon returning home, a fellow practitioner took me back to her home and we studied the Fa and did the exercises together. In just 19 days, I recovered completely and my condition went back to normal. My breast was normal again and when I gave birth to a daughter subsequently, I was able to breast feed her.
I had x-rays taken of my thigh bone three times and the doctor confirmed that they had become necrotic. However, I have walked like a normal person for 13 years. I told the doctor that this was because I practice Falun Dafa and he immediately gave the thumbs up and said, “This is truly a miracle and I bow to Falun Dafa.”
To Truly Cultivate, One Must Follow Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance and Be Reborn
Before practicing Dafa, I was bad tempered and often had arguments with my husband. I always got into fights with my father-in-law and elder sister-in-law. After I understood the teachings of Dafa, I made efforts to change myself and kept correcting my faults and inadequacies.
I began to treat my father-in-law kindly. He had a stroke and because his legs were covered with a large abscess, he was afraid to walk. My husband carried him to the hospital on his back. Upon his return, I took care of him from day to night and told him about the beauty of Dafa. I asked him to often recite “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” as well as “Falun Dafa is good.” When my father-in-law saw my transformation, he truly believed in Dafa and was supportive when I went to appeal for Dafa. Because of this, he was blessed in return. The large abscess on his legs vanished in two days. Hence, he told everyone he met about how miraculous Falun Dafa is.
Through studying the Fa constantly and looking within, I resolved the conflict I'd had with my elder sister-in-law for over ten years. Now, I get along with my sister-in-law and her family harmoniously. They all believe that Dafa is good. My sister-in-law has often told people about the virtues of Dafa. She told them I had changed into a different person through the practice. Later, her grandson had a malignant tumor that could not be treated. She asked me to teach him the exercises and soon after, he miraculously recovered.
I understood from the Fa that treating others kindly is in fact treating myself well. As I kept improving my xinxing, my body experienced extraordinary changes. People around me commented that I had changed into a different person!
Village Head Helped Me Clarify the Truth and Agents from the 610 Office Ran Away
Those who did not believe in Dafa before, including the police officers who persecuted me, witnessed the miracles of Dafa that happened to me. Consequently, quite a few of them started their cultivation journey.
During the 2008 Beijing Olympics, an agent from the city's 610 Office came to my home and harassed me. A female village head who had worked together with the police many times in the past and arrested me, arrived too. As I was about to explain the facts about the persecution, the village head waved her hand signaling me to stop. She told the agent that I had become disabled because my thigh bones had become necrotic, but through practicing Falun Dafa I recovered. She said that we both come from the same village and if he didn't believe what she said, he could look at my x-rays. She continued, “You can see for yourself. Furthermore, when she had breast cancer, I personally escorted her back from the labor camp. You are being unreasonable if you stop her from practicing. In the past, she used to play mahjong with me but it's been ten years since she stopped. On top of that, she did not do much in the past, but since she started to practice Falun Dafa, I see her at work every day.” After listening to her, the agent left without saying anything.
Afterward, I ran into the village head on one occasion and thanked her for her help. She said proudly, “What I said was true and I saw it with my own eyes.” She even took my hand and apologized, “When I recall how I used to treat you, I feel very ashamed. I'm sorry. Ever since I saw your recovery from breast cancer with my own eyes, I truly believe in Dafa. Indeed, Dafa's Master has saved you!” I asked her to withdraw from the Communist Party and she gladly agreed.
Close Friends and Relatives Benefit from My Cultivation
In the 13 years of my practice, many extraordinary incidents occurred where my family and neighbors who do not practice Falun Dafa benefited from Dafa.
I gave birth to my second daughter at the age of 36. However my new breast could not produce milk. I remembered that when I was sent home from the labor camp after I had breast cancer, my pain subsided completely when I did the fourth exercise. I also became very energetic afterward. It looked like I had to do the exercises on this occasion. Hence, my mother did the exercises together with me. After we did the first four sets of exercises, I held my daughter and immediately I was able to give her milk from my breast. Those around me witnessed the miracles of Dafa once again.
My youngest daughter is six years old this year and she is very healthy. Over the past six years, she has had fevers and colds, but no matter how severe it appeared to be, I simply kept reciting the words “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” by her ear. I also played Master's taped lectures for her to listen to or let her watch the Shen Yun Performing Arts DVD. Usually, she recovered within two to three days.
My husband naturally benefited from my practice too. Once, he lay on the bed for two to three days, unable to get up. He could not eat anything and he looked very ill. He said his stomach felt bloated and this had been going on for a long time. I told him, “Why don't you try and practice Dafa for a few days since it is so extraordinary. If you feel good afterward, then continue with it. If not, we will go to the hospital.” He agreed and decided to do the exercises. After two days, he started to have diarrhea. I knew that Master was cleansing his body. He happily told me that his stomach stopped feeling bloated.
My neighbor had arthritis and her arms and legs ached so much that she could not walk. I explained to her the facts about Falun Dafa and asked her to recite often: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She believed what I told her and often told others the truth about the persecution as well. She also told others the miracles that happened to me, which she had seen with her own eyes.
In the end, she became better gradually and completely recovered from her illness. Many people asked how she became well. She smiled and told them that Falun Dafa is amazing. Her whole family believes that Dafa is good and withdrew from the Communist organizations.
