(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. I'm 62 years old and I can walk with steady and light steps like a young person. However, twelve years ago when my husband passed away, I suffered from diseases such as severe rheumatism, bronchitis, sinusitis, and chronic appendicitis. Even though I had these illnesses I still had to work so that my son could go to school. Life was hard for me back then.

Practicing Falun Dafa gave me the courage to live. Three months after I became a practitioner, all my illnesses had vanished. Knowing that Master endured a lot for me, I decided that I must spread the beauty of this amazing practice to people.

When Jiang’s regime began to viciously attack the practice on July 20, 1999, my son and I went to Beijing to appeal. I was incarcerated afterwards.

My son and I suffered all kinds of persecution, however, Dafa gives us the courage and confidence to continue cultivating. More than once we've witnessed Falun Dafa’s mighty virtue, purity, compassion, sacredness and dignity.

1. Handcuffs cannot restrict me

I was illegally arrested and imprisoned in Heilongjiang Women’s Prison at the end of July, 2001. To force practitioners to denounce their belief the guards kept us handcuffed the entire time. In the evenings, they cuffed one of our hands to the bed while we slept.

The handcuffs were very tight, and three days later, our hands were swollen, and our entire bodies ached. One day, I asked myself since I hadn't broken any laws, how could I be restricted by these people? I asked Master to give me strength and make my hands smaller. As soon as I said that, my hands came out of the handcuffs. No words could express how grateful I was and I thanked Master repeatedly.

I was hung up for 23 days, and during that time, I did not feel the pain from the handcuffs and they had no impact on me at all.

2. My eyesight becomes bright and clear again

One summer day in 2002, I finally received a copy of Master’s new lecture. Covering myself with the quilt and holding Master’s lecture, I could not see anything clearly since the font was too small. I cried anxiously not knowing what to do, but at that critical moment, I remembered to ask Master for help.

I said, “Master, I'm locked up in this detention center, I have only tonight to read your lecture. Tomorrow I’ll have to pass it on so that other practitioners can read it. Please help me. I must read the lecture twice tonight.” As I said that, I picked up the lecture again and found that I could easily read it. I thanked Master in my heart.

3. “Practitioners are kindhearted”

I got a job at the end of 2005 taking care of elderly people. The first person that I took care of was an old man in his seventies. He could not walk well by himself, and none of his children lived with him. Before my husband passed away, I did not do any household chores, so I had no idea how to take care of other people. Cooking three meals a day for another person was difficult for me, let alone doing other household chores.

Standing inside the man's kitchen, in my heart I said, “Master, I don’t know how to cook.” At that moment, Master’s words echoed in my head, “When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible.” (Zhuan Falun) I told myself that practitioners can do anything, and Dafa gives us wisdom. Not only would I know how to cook, I would also do a very good job. Master teaches us to act with “selflessness and altruism.” (“Non-Omission in Buddha Nature” in Essentials for Further Advancement). I should be considerate of others in every way. Thus I worked hard and carefully took care of the old man. He and his children began to trust me.

In the winter of 2007, he had a high fever which lingered for a while. An ambulance came to take him to the hospital, but the stretcher was cold. I used my new cotton quilt that a fellow practitioner made for me to cover the stretcher so that he was warm lying on it. But he wet a large portion of my new quilt. After he recovered, he told me gratefully that Dafa disciples are kindhearted and are truly good people.

4. Conducting Myself as a Practitioner

I'm in my sixties, so taking care of other people isn't easy for me, particularly if they are bedridden. It's difficult to change the bedding and move them.

Once, he fell after using the bathroom, and I didn't know how to carry him back to his bed. At that moment, I told myself: practitioners have divine capabilities. As soon as I thought this, I was able to carry the old man to bed. Similar things happened many times.

I cultivate in a state of gradual enlightenment, and sometimes, I'm able to see things that happened to me in my previous lives. One day when I was meditating, I saw with my third eye that this old man was my son in one of our previous lives.

I told him what I saw, but he didn't believe me. However, three days before he died, his third eye suddenly opened. Master helped him to see our karmic relationship, and he realized that I was indeed his mother in our previous life. Excitedly he said, “I'm so fortunate.” He murmured “Falun Dafa is good” before passing away.

The day he died, many people came to his home, and most of them were leaders of various work units. Patting me on the back, the old man’s daughter told her guests, “This is the person who took care of my father. She’s a Falun Gong practitioner!” Suddenly, over twenty pairs of eyes were fixed on me. With a smile on my face, I silently told them, “Please remember Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

After the funeral, the daughter put 3000 yuan into my hands and said, “You’ve been working hard taking care of my father. I’m very grateful for you. Please accept this as a way for me to thank you.” I did not want the money, but she said, “You’ve sacrificed, therefore, this money is yours.”

After the old man passed away, his daughter asked me to take care of the house for her. While cleaning the house one day, I found several stamp albums with some very old stamps. I called her right away, and immediately she sent someone over to take the albums to her.

She felt very grateful to me, and told me that the albums contained all the stamps that her father had collected his entire life. Some of them were very valuable. She knew that Dafa disciples were selfless and trustworthy. From then on, she hired me to do household chores for her and treated me as her family member.

I left her house a few years ago, but she often calls me and asks me to come back. Then she asked me to refer another practitioner to her. She told me, “I trust my house to practitioners.”

5. Rising above this filthy world

When I first began to take care of the old man, I sometimes cleaned his body for him. He once asked, “You haven’t lived with a man for over a dozen years. How do you feel when you clean my bottom?” I wasn't moved and told him, “I’m just doing my job. I do not have any wicked thoughts.” Surprised, he did not know how to respond. A few days later, he told me respectfully that I was truly a good person.

I met all kinds of people after I began working. Faced with all kinds of human temptations, I have one thought, “No lust or desires will tempt me.” That single thought proved to be very effective later on.

I did household chores for a blind masseur in 2009. Two days later, he suddenly said, “You have to agree to one condition-- sleep with me.”

I could hardly believe what I just heard. Immediately I replied, “Absolutely not!” He said, “I’ll pay you more.” I told him, “No matter how much more you pay me. I’m a Falun Gong practitioner. We don't do immoral things like that.”

He began to curse Master and Dafa loudly. Solemnly and sternly I told him, “Please stop. You’ll receive karmic retribution if you don’t stop now.” After saying that, I began to send forth righteous thoughts to stop him. I realized that I needed to clarify the truth to him before he did or said anything else he'd regret. After cursing a few more times, he suddenly couldn't make any sound when his mouth opened. From then on, he dared not have any improper thoughts towards me anymore.

After dinner one day, sitting about two meters away from me, he “stared” at me for a long time. Then he asked, “I can see that your heart is tightly locked by a big lock. It’s strange.” I understood right away that he must have seen the scenes from other dimensions.

My one thought really formed a lock inside my heart. I realized how serious cultivation is. Master is constantly taking care of me. Master has done so much for us because He wants us to have a compassionate heart. I want to be a pure lotus flower emerging from the filthy human world to demonstrate the purity and magnificence of Dafa.

6. Retired Police Department Executive Helps Clarify the Truth

Another person that I took care of was a retired office executive for a head of a police department. Two days after I began working for him, he withdrew from the CCP. I bought a DVD player for us to watch Master’s lectures, and truth-clarifying DVDs. During the day, I wheeled him to the park and market to spread the truth of Dafa to the people there and the other places we went.

When I helped people withdraw from CCP and its affiliated associations, he sometimes helped add a few comments. He was fond of music, so I played “Pu Du” and “Ji Shi” for him. He listened to them several times a day, and every time he listened, he said that the music was from heaven.

After working for him for six months, I left his house, but returned to visit him twice. Once he told me that he was taken to the emergency room after he had a heart attack. While he was in a coma, he saw armed soldiers and commanders from some other dimensions. They pointed at him and said, “Follow us!” He replied, “I can’t follow you!” Then he shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” The soldiers and commanders were shocked and said, “Let’s go quickly. He doesn’t belong to us anymore,” then they left. The old man woke up from his coma.


I've worked in several houses in seven years. It felt as if I was wandering in the ordinary world, just like Master said in Zhuan Falun . I truly have met various people, and was given all kinds of opportunities to elevate my xinxing. Sometimes I felt miserable, but I will never forget what Master said in “Teaching the Fa at the 2004 International Fa Conference in New York”: “Your mere existence has the effect of saving sentient beings.”

I often remind myself that I'm a cultivator and need to save people. I have the obligation to tell every person I meet the truth and save them. No matter how long the road is ahead of me, I have but one thought: I should constantly purify myself and save more people because this is what Master wants.
