(Minghui.org) I was born in a small city in Hebei Province. I began to practice Falun Dafa on New Year’s Eve in 1996. I was 16 years old and a student at one of the best high schools in the province. Since I was living on campus, I could only practice on weekends when I came home. The holidays were the happiest time because I could do the exercises with other practitioners at the practice site in the morning and attend group study in the evening. I could also attend some activities with my family members, who were also practitioners, to promote Falun Dafa. At that time, my brother and I liked to carry the flag and scroll with Falun Dafa words. We were proud and happy to walk in the front of the parade each time. Since my parents and my brother were practitioners as well, the cultivation environment in our family was among the best in our area. Other practitioners enjoyed coming to our home to share experiences and study. It was a great period of time for us all.

Since my parents had jobs at that time and our economic condition was good, we were able to purchase the authorized Dafa books in large quantity and distribute them. When we obtained new shipments of books from other cities, some practitioners heard the news, and they would come to our house and buy the books as soon as possible. Sometimes, my parents were at work and they told my brother and I that we should sell the books to other practitioners at the same price we had purchased them. We must not charge one cent more. If they did not bring enough money for the books, we could let them take the books home anyway. Some practitioners traveled a great distance to purchase the authorized Dafa books. I felt that they were very friendly, even if we were meeting for the first time. Some of them planned to purchase two sets of the books, but after seeing the authorized books, they changed their mind and wanted to buy more than they originally planned. That was why sometimes it happened that they did not bring enough money. My brother and I did as Mom told us and allowed the practitioners to take the books home anyway. They would always bring back the money as soon as possible. During those years, there was not even one case of money not paid in full for the books purchased.

Our family members encouraged one another in cultivation. Sometimes, my younger brother and I liked to stay in bed late in the morning. However, our parents taught us not to be lazy and said that we should be diligent young practitioners. We also communicated our views to help our parents look at issues related to Xinxing at their workplace. We benefited a lot from learning Falun Dafa. Previously, my mother had high blood pressure, my father had leg problems and my brother had several big black moles on his back. All these health problems disappeared after they practiced Falun Dafa. Master helped me purify my body several times during my cultivation practice as well. The following is a story of how Falun Dafa helped me eliminate karma.

I contracted a strange disease when I was ten. It was a disease which caused hair loss. I lost lots of hair every morning when I combed my hair. Gradually, my family realized that my hair loss situation had become so severe that I had very little hair left on my head. Thus, I shaved my head, but then found that there were a lot of pustules on my scalp. Some of them suppurated and formed thick scabs. Some pustules were inflamed and painful. There was no hair on my head by then. My mother took me to several well-known hospitals and I was told by the doctors that my hair follicles were dead. I tried all kinds of medicines. When my mother cleaned my scalp with alcohol and iodine I couldn’t help but cry because of the pain. Sometimes, my mother was surprised to see new hair on my head, however, it soon fell out. Since I shaved my head, in order to let people tell that I was a girl, I wore a hat with flowers on it. I wore that hat for 2 years, until I went to junior high school and was finally healed of the disease.

One summer day in 1998, I found a thick scab on the bottom of my left foot. It looked like something that was left after suppuration and was not cleaned. It did not hurt when I pressed it, but I could not remove it either. I remember that I said to my family, “See, I have a thick scab on my foot too. I must have been a very bad person in my past life. I must have done lots of bad things. If not, why did I get scabs on my head and blisters on my feet (this is an old saying used in Northern China to describe a very bad person)?” My family members said to thank Falun Dafa and Master, who was helping me eliminate karma and pay my debt. The scab on my foot was a way Master was helping me purify my body. After about one month, the scab disappeared. I understood that Master wanted me to know that I had too much karma accumulated from past lives. Only if I am strict with myself in living up to the standard of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, could I avoid “scabs on my head and blisters on my feet” in the future.

In March of 1999, while studying at school, I felt an itchy sensation on my head and so I scratched my scalp. As a result, strands of hair broke off in my hand and there were scabs at the root. I was nervous at the time and wondered why this was happening again. I hurriedly touched my head again and found hair on other parts of my scalp intact, but my whole head was covered by a layer of thick scab. I felt new short hair beginning to grow on the scalp. I suddenly remembered what Master Li had told us,

“The ill part of your body, which you thought was healed before through qigong exercises or by a qigong master, will again have illness. This is because that qigong master did not cure the illness for you—he only postponed it. It was still there and would recur later if not at that time. We must dig it out and eliminate it completely from its root.” (Zhuan Falun, 2000 version)

This was Master helping me fundamentally get rid of the disease that I had before. Master also considered that because I am a girl, he did not allow the whole head of hair and scab to fall out all at once. My hair fell out little by little in the following months. Every time a section of hair and scab broke off, there was new hair on that part of my head; and every time the new hair grew, another piece of scab broke off. In this way, when the last piece of scab broke off, the hair on the first part had reached the length of my original hair. Although the lengths of my hair were different on my head, people could tell that I was a girl. I did not need to wear a special hat anymore. This story let my family and other people at our practice site witness the mercy and wonder of Falun Dafa once again. Every time my mother talked of this, she would tell me, “How merciful our Master is! He even considered the fact that you are a girl when helping you eliminate karma.”

This situation occurred 10 years ago, but every time it comes to mind, I can deeply feel the mercy and care from Master. I will try my best to practice well and not let Master down.

This is my first time to submit an article. I am overjoyed when I recall those memories. If there is any error or mistake in my sharing, please let me know.
