Trapped under a Raft in Rapids
(Luoyang City, Henan Province) My aunt is a Falun Gong practitioner. She told me the truth about Falun Gong and asked me to say “Falun Dafa is good” as often as I could. Although I knew the facts, I still did not understand Falun Gong practitioners. I thought to myself, “The practice is good, but the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) does not allow it, and the persecution is so brutal that one could die. It is useless even though it is a good practice.”
In August, 2012, I went rafting with several friends. Eleven of us rented two rafts. In a place where there were rapids, the raft with six of us in it hit a floating log and turned upside-down. Out of instinct, I grabbed a rope in the raft. From the moment I fell into the water, I kept my eyes open. I saw I was trapped underneath the raft. The water was rushing so fast that my life vest did not work at all. No matter how hard I struggled, I could not get out of the water. It was my first encounter with rapids, so I was not experienced. I swallowed some water, then I felt like I was suffocating.
Now, thinking back, it was, simply, a miracle. When I thought I was going to die, I only remembered, “Falun Dafa is good! Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Master Li, save me!” This is what happened: The words “hold my breath” appeared in my mind, and I felt a force under my feet push my whole body up. Soon I floated up out of water, and a friend dragged me up. At that moment, I knew that if Master did not save me, I would have died.
After this incident, I understood why Falun Gong practitioners still hold firm to their belief after more than a decade of persecution by the CCP. I understood why Falun Dafa has been embraced around the world, despite the CCP slander and lies. It is because Falun Dafa is the Buddha law that saves sentient beings. As long as you believe in it, the divine beings will guard you. I muddled along without any aim for more than 30 years. As an ordinary person, I struggled for fame and profits. Now I also have become a Falun Gong practitioner. I will live with a clear mind. I will use Master's teachings to guide myself, improve myself, and find my true self.
(China) There is a disabled veteran in our area. He lost sight in one of his eyes during the Vietnam war. After he heard about the truth of Falun Dafa, he eagerly looked for all kinds of truth-clarification DVDs and brochures. Every morning when he gets up, he shouts, “Falun Dafa is good!” He also reads Zhuan Falun before he goes to sleep. He clarified truth to more than a dozen of his friends and let them take turns watching the Shen Yun DVD and reading the truth-clarification brochures. They also read Zhuan Falun . Those who knew the truth all asked to quit the CCP.
This disabled veteran was rewarded for doing such good deeds. Now he can even read small characters with his formerly bad eye. He is extremely grateful to Master!
One Thought Saved His Life
(China) My friend Li told me after he came back from his hometown for the 2013 Chinese New Year: "Thank you! Thanks to Falun Dafa!” He said he went to his hometown in Jiayue to deliver New Year's groceries. The road in the countryside was frozen, and his car slid. To avoid hitting villagers on the road, he let the car slide to the side. It looked like the car would fall into a ditch. If it had, even if no one was injured, it would have been hard to get the car out.
At the critical moment, Li thought about Falun Dafa. Once the thought came into his mind, the car adjusted its direction by itself, then slowly stopped on the side of the road.
Li was so nervous that he did not realize what had happened until after a while. Then he went home feeling lucky and grateful.
