Minghui Fahui | Witnessing the Miracle of Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) Greetings, dear Master. Greetings, fellow practitioners.
I am from Hunan Province and I started practicing Falun Dafa in August 1997. I witnessed many of the miracles of Dafa and the infinite mercy of Master Li. I have cultivated for many years. I could not have reached this point today without Master’s protection. I realize that there are no hurdles I cannot overcome on my path as long as I have 100 percent belief in Dafa and Master. I would like to share some of my cultivation experiences and understandings with other practitioners.
Learning Falun Dafa
It was my great fortune to learn about Falun Dafa in January 1997. My father was in the hospital because of a medical condition called Trigeminal Neuralgia. Another patient, Mr. Wang, who was a college professor, was in the same room. Professor Wang suffered from a neurological disease and was unable to stand. He required blood transfusions just to survive and his disease was incurable. He was just waiting to die. One day, his colleague, Professor Li, visited and gave Professor Wang a book to read. Professor Wang was so ill that he could not even read by himself, so his wife read the book to him. Surprisingly, the professor was able to sit up on the fourth day after he got the book. He even had a bowl of rice congee.
After I saw this, I asked Professor Wang’s wife what the name of this amazing book was and how his disease could be cured by a book. His wife told me it was Zhuan Falun. On the fifth day, Professor Li came to visit Professor Wang again. Professor Wang said he wanted to leave the hospital and practice Falun Dafa with Professor Li. I asked Professor Li whether she had an extra book, as I wanted one also. She told me that she did not have one with her, but she gave me her address so that I could go to her house to pick one up. Due to my negligence, I lost her address and missed an opportunity to acquire Dafa at that time.
Master never forgets his disciple! In August, I had a dream on the night of my birthday. In the dream, there were crowds of people in the stadium in my town. I went there and saw people doing exercises and sitting in meditation. Master was standing at the gate. Master asked me whether I wanted to learn. I said yes, because this practice belonged to Buddhism. Master asked me to come in and I entered the stadium. Master asked, “Can you meditate?” I replied, “No, I can’t.” Then Master said, “Please sit down and let me teach you.” I sat down on the ground and Master helped me cross my legs. I sat with my legs crossed for two hours in the dream. Master also told me, “I take you as my disciple. Two days from now someone will give you a book. You must take it.”
Two days later, two ladies came to my house and brought me a book. It was Zhuan Falun. When I saw the cover page, I saw the Falun rotating. The words “Zhuan Falun” on the cover changed to the shining words, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” I held the book in my arms and said, “This book is so amazing. The image can rotate and the words can change. I have never seen such a book before. It is amazing and incredible!” The ladies said, “You are predestined. You can easily see the Falun rotating!” I told them that I had a reoccurring dream of receiving the book many times. The dreams finally came true after so many years!
I did not sleep that night until after I finished reading the book. This is the amazing account of how I acquired Dafa and began my cultivation practice.
Master Looks After Me
My leg was injured at work on July 10, 1996. I had a meniscectomy of my left knee. It was a small surgery, but it hurt all the time. My leg swelled and I was not able to wear pants. I could hardly walk. I tried everything, but nothing was effective. So I went to see a private doctor. After that, the swelling disappeared, but my knee still hurt and I had to stay at home. One year later, I acquired Dafa. After I read Zhuan Falun for two days, the pain in my knee disappeared. At 5 o’clock on the third morning, I heard beautiful whistling. I heard it for several days. I wondered who was playing such wonderful music. When I stepped out the door with one foot, I could hear it, but when both my feet were outside, I could not hear it. I tried several times and could not figure out the reason. After deeper thinking, I realized that it was Master helping me to get up to practice the Falun Dafa exercises.
One night after reading the book for a week, the lady who gave me the book came to my house and asked, “Will you come practice the exercises with me?” I said yes and thought, “I will go if Master asks me to.” That night at 1 a.m., I heard a male voice calling my name in Mandarin. I opened the window and asked, “Who is it?” It was dark outside and no one answered, so I went go back to sleep. At 3 a.m., somebody knocked on my door and said, “Why don’t you get up? It’s late!” I thought I had forgotten to lock my door and I got up to check, but the door was locked. I wondered what was going on. I suddenly realized that it was Master encouraging me to practice! After I started learning Dafa, similar things happened many times. Sometimes, it is the knock on the door, sometimes it is the telephone ringing.
There was no moonlight when I went out at 3 a.m., and it was quite dark. However, Master Li showed me the way to the practice site. A lady wanted to teach me the exercises, but I told her that Master had taught me in my dream and I could practice with the others. On the first day, when I was doing Holding the Wheel, I saw a stretch of red sky above. I knew it was Master encouraging me to keep practicing and enhancing my confidence in cultivation. After I finished that day, I asked for seven Dafa books, photos of Master Li, and two Falun pictures to bring home.
The female practitioner advised me to clear out all the evil books from my house. After I got home, I disposed of all the qigong books, tapes and the inverted bell that I had used for a year. I asked Master to do consecration for the Buddha statue in my home. After that, I noticed that there was a circle of light around the statue. When I disposed of the books, I wanted to burn them, but I couldn't. At that time, we did not know about sending out righteous thoughts. We asked Master to help us. We put our hands in the heshi position and asked for Master’s help. Just then the recycling man came. We gave all the old books and tapes to him. I had a dream that night. In the dream, many Taoists came to my house to cause trouble. Master Li came, too, and said to them, “Now she is my disciple. Don’t trouble her.” Then they left. The next day when I was practicing, I felt somebody pulling on me from the other dimension. I saw it was one of the Taoists from my dream. That time, Master Li covered me with a hood. I had no further problems from the Taoists. It is Master who helped me to solve all these problems.
On the seventh day of my practice, Master helped me open my Celestial Eye. He drew a big eye on my head and let me see the beautiful and glorious scenery in the other dimension. I got to see the roles that I played in history during other lifetimes. A month later, Master gave me a large box in my dream. It was filled with all kinds of weapons and armor and other things I could not name. At that time, I was thinking that Master was asking me to sing the ancient plays. Now I understand that they were the powerful tools to use during the Fa-rectification period.
In 1999, Master let me see to what degree I had practiced. After shedding my human skin, I saw a body of light consisting of very small atoms. I am so fortunate to be one of Master’s disciples.
Back to Life
In December of 1999, my mother was hospitalized because of her gallbladder. My niece was getting married on New Year’s Day, but I did not have a chance to attend the noontime wedding. A lot of people were coming from out of town, and there was not enough space at her house for everyone. Some of the guests stayed at my house. After settling them down, I went to the hospital to take care of my mother. My stomach hurt. I hadn’t practiced for several days, so I decided to meditate for a while and then went to sleep. However, the severe pain woke me up at 3 a.m. I got up to go to the restroom and saw the nurses resting at their desk. Somehow, I fell down and saw myself flying out of my human body and arriving at the entrance to a dark tunnel. I could only fly forward. I wanted to go back to my human body, but I could not find it. I thought about Master. I could not leave like this. I hadn’t finished my mission yet. I shouted, “Master, save me! Master Li, please save me!” Master came and put me back in my human body. Then I woke up. The clock on the wall was pointing at 3:35 a.m. I found excrement all over me. It was just like when people die, and their bladder and bowels empty. I knew I had passed very close to the curtain of death. It was Master who saved me from death.
When I returned home to change my clothes, my family told me that they had had diarrhea in the night, too. They had even used up all the toilet paper. After I arrived home, they were fine. I understood that Master let them share the Karma for me. Master has said in Zhuan Falun, “Let us use an example. We will put together your different karma in your future life, and eliminate part of it or half of it. The remaining half is still higher than a mountain, and you cannot overcome it. What should be done? When you achieve the Tao, many people in the future will benefit. This way, many people will bear a share for you. Of course, it is nothing to them.”
After this, I knew that if I had 100 percent belief in Master and Dafa, there wouldn’t be any barrier that I could not cross. “When disciples have ample righteous thoughts, Master has the power to turn back the tide” (“The Master-Disciple Bond,” Hong Yin II). Thanks to Master Li, who saved me from death. Master has such power and he did not give up on me. I cannot find the words to express my gratitude to Master.
Righteous Thoughts Change Danger to Safety
At the end of August, 2011, the coordinator in our town was illegally arrested. One Falun Gong material production site was searched. The place where I lived was strictly monitored as well. At the time, I had a lot of equipment and finished materials and discs. Two practitioners from other towns were staying at my place. Our landline phones and cell phones were monitored also. One practitioner told me to stop making the materials for a while. I told her, “I don’t know why the machine did not work last night. So I stopped. The main concern is the safety of the two practitioners in my home and how to replace those machines and materials.” Later, we sent the two practitioners on their way safely with our righteous thoughts. Shortly after that, several people stopped by, saying they were there to interview for the babysitting job. When I opened the door, I saw a relative of mine accompanied by four other people. I asked, “Which of you is applying for the babysitting job?” One of them said, “Oh, the person who wants the job is not with us today. We came here to see the place and negotiate the rate first.” I said, “My relatives all know about my family situation. The salary will be no different from the standard pay for babysitting.” The visitors looked throughout the house, but found nothing and left. Master protected us by arranging for the materials to be hidden from their view. However, they did not give up and employed some elderly people to keep watch on those who went in and out of my house. This presented an unsafe situation for fellow practitioners. I sat down and sent forth righteous thoughts asking Master to help. Right at that moment, I heard the person watching our home say, “I don’t know why I have these painful abdominal cramps today.” The other one replied, “Me too, but there is no restroom in this apartment building.” The third one said, “I cannot hold on anymore. Call them to get someone else to take our places.” They left and new people came. I kept on sending out righteous thoughts and soon they left in the same way.
I sent forth righteous thoughts continuously in my home and in nearby areas. I also asked for Fa-protection and that practitioners all over the world assist in clearing out the evil. I saw the battle between Good and Evil. There was lightning and thunder. Soon it became clear in my space.
I sent forth righteous thoughts for several days. At 5 o’clock on the third day, I saw an old man sitting on a chair in front of a gate. I sent forth righteous thoughts and then he was gone. He died at home that same night. He was punished for doing bad things. This threatened the evil, and there was nobody who dared to come to guard the gate. With the protection of Master and the cooperation of fellow practitioners, all the Falun Dafa materials and equipment were safely transferred to a more secure place.
Master has said,
“Should you have fear,
it will seize upon you
If thoughts are righteous,
evil will collapse
The cultivator’s mind
is loaded with Fa
Send righteous thoughts,
and rotten demons explode
Gods walk the earth,
validating the Fa” (“What’s to Fear?” Hong Yin II)
I also realized why Master asks us to do the three things during the Fa-rectification period. One of them is sending forth righteous thoughts, which is very important.
The Nine Powerful Words
Why can people be blessed if they believe “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good?” The reason is that Falun Dafa is the Buddha Fa, and when it is persecuted in the everyday world, yet you can still tell the right from the wrong and support goodness, which is a very precious thought, then you will be blessed by gods. The following is a true account of my experience with this Fa principle.
On May 11, 2008, I had a dream. I dreamed that the father-in-law of my younger sister, who lives far away from me, came to visit and asked me to save him. I told him that only our Master could save him and I asked him to say aloud, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He left after hearing this. Then I woke up. I was about to call my sister the next morning when she called me. She said that her father-in-law had had a stroke the previous night. I told her about my dream and asked her to help him say the “Nine Words.” She would not believe it and said, “If repeating these words can cure disease, why do we need hospitals?” I told her about the wonder of Dafa and that a lot of people recovered from diseases that could not be treated at hospitals simply by repeating and understanding these words. I asked her to give it a try and she agreed.
A week later, I dreamed about her father-in-law again. He asked me to save him. I called the family the next day. It was my niece who answered the phone. I asked her, “How is your grandpa?” She said, “He has not woken up yet. The doctor said there is no hope.” I told her, “Yes, there is hope for your grandpa. Please go to your grandpa’s side and say, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He will wake up.” My niece said, “My family members are all police officers and I cannot do that.” I said, You have an opportunity to save your grandpa and you choose not to? Falun Dafa is the Buddha Fa. He can be saved if you repeat the words.” I sent forth righteous thoughts to her at the same time. Then she understood and said, “I will tell my parents to say the words to him.”
A few days passed. The grandpa had been in a coma for 12 days. The doctor told my sister’s husband, “He will not make it. You should prepare for his funeral. We have tried our best.” My sister’s husband called me and asked, “Did you say that you have a way to save my dad?” “Yes,” I said, “You must repeat the words, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' to your dad. Then he can be saved.” “OK, I have no other choice and I will try it. Would you send the words to my cellphone through SMS? I want to see them clearly.” I sent it right away. At 8 o’clock, he called me again and asked, “Is there anything else that I need to do?” I said, “Nothing, you only need recite the words to your father. You also have to help your father quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) or any CCP organization he was in. You and your family members need to quit, too. Since you all recognize that Falun Dafa is good, you will have a bright future and your father will be saved. If you don’t quit the CCP, which is against Falun Dafa, the gods see that you are still a member. Just reciting the words won’t do, the gods must also see people’s true hearts.” He said, “I will do what you suggest and quit.”
That night, his younger brother stayed at the hospital to look after his father. He repeated the words sincerely from 8:30 p.m. until midnight and then drifted off to sleep. Around 3 a.m., he was awakened by his father. He could hardly believe it. He thought he was dreaming and he slapped himself. He saw it was true and asked his father, “What do you need?” His father said, “I want to sit up.” He told the whole family, “Our father woke up!” He called me at 3:30 a.m. and said, “It really works! It works!” The father left the hospital two days later.
I am very happy for them all because they are saved. Three years later, I visited the old man who was already 88 years old. The story was well known in the local area, and all his friends knew the truth. They all chose to quit the CCP and believe in Falun Dafa. They also chose their own bright future. The old man's children worked for the CCP, but after they understood the truth, they changed their view of Falun Dafa. They never did what the authorities told them to do. They chose their futures as well. I felt so happy for them.
I have had many more similar examples. I understand that it is Master who saves people’s lives, we practitioners just do our duties.
Now the time left for Fa-rectification is limited. I decided to let go of all my everyday people's attachments, study the Fa earnestly, and cultivate myself well. Master has treated me with such mercy and I do not want to let him down. Only in this way can I finish my sacred mission and fulfill my responsibilities.
Due to my limited level, please kindly point out any mistakes or shortcomings.
