(Minghui.org) In the spring of 1999, I was on the verge of death. I had been bedridden for more than 40 days and couldn't move.

I had suffered rheumatism for years and had almost lost the confidence and courage to go on with my life. I had visited many famous hospitals, and many doctors predicted that I wouldn't live much longer.

My daughter is a Chinese medical doctor. She made prescriptions for me. Every Chinese medical doctor knows that asarum (the root of Chinese wild ginger, an ingredient in Chinese medicine) cannot exceed 5g in one dose, otherwise, it can seriously affect the patient. My daughter treated me as a dying patient, so she added 250g of asarum in the prescription. I didn't have any response until I took it for three days. Though I felt better, I couldn't afford the expense. I decided to give up all treatment and just wait to breathe my last.

Just at that time, a Falun Dafa practitioner came to my home. She said, “Falun Gong has cured many patients who suffered from serious diseases. You might give it a try.” I thought, “All right. Let me give it a try. Since I am dying, I won't blame Falun Gong even if it doesn't help.” The following day, I went to the nearby practice site. Though it was very close to my home, it took me two hours to get there. The first day, I felt very good. A week later, my disease disappeared! I became healthy! I couldn't express my joy and my gratitude towards Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) and Dafa. I was reborn.

In the meantime, I started studying the Fa. I became healthy both physically and spiritually. I was in high spirits every day. I understood the significance of life after beginning the practice.

Validating the Fa

Just as I started cultivating Dafa and understanding the meaning of life, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to suppress Falun Gong. The CCP used propaganda to spread rumors and lies to defame Falun Gong. I went with other practitioners to Beijing to validate the Fa and speak up for Master and Dafa. However, the police arrested and beat us, closed down the practice sites, and detained the volunteer assistants. We practitioners, as one body, were dispersed.

We lost our practice environment. For a period of time I didn't practice. As a consequence, the old disease came back to me and drove me to the verge of death. My daughter's prescription no longer had any effect on me. I said to my husband and daughter, “If I practice Falun Gong, the police will arrest me; if I do not practice Falun Gong, I will die. You know that I became healthy after practicing Falun Gong, so I can't give it up. Please don't stop me. I am ready to risk everything. The worst result is death.” I resumed studying the Fa and practicing the exercises, and soon recovered.

Since I resumed practicing, I have been very healthy and never went to the hospital again. Those famous hospitals that had sentenced me to death frequently sent me surveys asking about my health. They wanted to know if I was still alive. I thought, “This is a really good opportunity to validate the Fa.” I told my husband, “I'll reply and tell them that I am still alive. They couldn't cure me, but Falun Gong did.” I replied to the letters from more than ten famous hospitals in an open and dignified way. They never sent me any more letters.

“They Are Really Warriors from Heaven.”

Dafa was being defamed, Master's reputation was tarnished, and practitioners were being persecuted. Dafa gave me a second lease on life. As a person who benefited so much from Dafa, why should I be afraid to tell people the facts about Falun Dafa?

I rode a tricycle every day and pretended to be collecting rubbish. I distributed truth clarification flyers door to door in residential communities. At first I didn't do it openly, so whenever I came across someone while I was distributing Dafa literature, I would pretend to be looking for some water or someone. Not many practitioners stepped forward in that initial period, and the evil was very rampant. Practitioners were often arrested. I used my wisdom to protect myself. For instance, I put some Coke bottles or paper boxes on my tricycle and wore shabby clothes to make me look like an old woman collecting rubbish.

No one paid any attention to me, so I was safe no matter how many brochures I carried with me. During the daytime I distributed materials in remote areas; at night I distributed materials nearby. Apart from the time spent studying the Fa, I spent most of my time distributing truth clarification materials.

One time, my relatives and I took turns taking care of my paralyzed elderly mother in her village. One night prior to my shift, I delivered Falun Gong materials to each household in that village. There weren't any Dafa practitioners in that village after the persecution started on July 20, 2013, so I had to save the people there. The next day, a villager went to my village and asked, “How many Falun Gong practitioners are there on earth? Every household in my village got a leaflet. The CCP is persecuting Falun Gong practitioners so severely, how do they dare do that? They are really not afraid of death!”

The corn in the northern village's field was ready for harvest. The night before the harvest was to begin, I put truth clarification materials on each cornstalk at the end of the rows. When they started harvesting, the villagers all said, “Falun Gong is so magical. It is everywhere, in every field, no more, no less, they're really like warriors from heaven!”

Clarifying the Truth Face to Face

As the Fa-rectification period progressed, I started telling people the facts about Falun Gong face to face. At first, I only distributed materials. In time I started to talk to people when I was distributing materials, from residential communities to small lanes, markets and highways; from local residents to different groups of people, and to all sentient beings with no exceptions. I often took a big bag of materials with me to the nearby flea market and auto trade market. People there almost grabbed for the materials whenever I went. Because I often went there, they knew that I had come to bring them something valuable.

Sometimes I ran into difficulties. One time at an auto trade market, I handed some materials to a young man. He said, “Give it to my teacher.” His "teacher" approached me, holding a cigarette between his lips. He didn't look decent and said he was going to report me to the police. I enlightened him by using my righteous thoughts, saying “I think you must be a talented and capable person since you have quite a few apprentices working for you. If you want them to obey you, the only way is to have them follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. It is the law of the universe and the sole criterion to judge good from bad. If they can follow these principles, it will be easier for you to manage them.” He immediately said, “Really? Come on, give each of them a copy. Let's study it carefully.”

One time when I was talking to people about Falun Gong at a flea market, some of them asked me for materials. A plainclothes officer appeared and attempted to grab my bag, but I held it tightly. Then he showed me his police ID. I thought, “Who are you? How could you harm me?” I said, “I am quite busy right now and have no time to talk to you. Go over there and stand still.” He was very obedient and stood in a corner, with his head lowered, like a guilty person who had committed wrongdoing. I took materials with me and continued saving people. When I finished doing my own business, I saw that person still standing there with his head lowered. Later I thought maybe Teacher helped me and fixed him over there so that he would not interfere with me saving people.

A couple from another city wanted to rent my house, but they had no money, because they had to pay medical expenses for their mentally challenged son. I said, “If you don't have any money, you can continue to stay here. Don't worry about the money.” He believed in Buddhism. I told him the facts about Falun Dafa. I gave his son a Dafa amulet and taught the boy to recite “Falun Dafa is good.”

One day, he lost his son on their way back from Shijiazhuang City, where they had gone to see a doctor. He was very worried. I comforted him and told him take it easy, “Your son will not be lost. He is wearing a Dafa amulet. Master Li is protecting him. He may be foolish in this life, but not in the next—his Primordial Spirit is not foolish.” Then I told him more about Falun Dafa and told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good.” I also suggested that he go to the police and hospitals to tell people the truth and look for his son. I told him that he would definitely find his son. He followed my suggestion. A week later he had a dream. In his dream, an elderly lady told him where to find his son. After he woke up, he followed what the old lady told him and finally found his son. He was very happy and decided not to go to the hospital anymore. They not only recite “Falun Dafa is good” sincerely but firmly believe in Teacher and Dafa. They started practicing Falun Dafa and went back to their hometown.

After they left, I was enlightened to the fact that they probably had a very close predestined relationship with me. They came to me, but left after they obtained the Fa. This experience made me wonder, “Is it possible that there are more people who have a very close predestined relationship with me but are still waiting for me to save them? I visit places nearby, but there are many people on buses coming back and forth along the highway. They are all from other cities. I should go there to find those who have a predestined relationship with me.” So I went to the bus stations on the highway, restaurants, grocery stores, and crossroads to tell people the facts and distribute materials, with very good results. Sometimes I came across another practitioner from another city. He took all my materials and said, “Sister, please give these materials to me. We are so short of them in our area.”

Head of 610 Office: Everyone, Come Quickly to Listen to Her

There were also times that I encountered trouble. One time while I was distributing materials on the highway, a police car came and quite a few policemen got out. They said that they were from Hebei Province Police Bureau, Shijiazhuang City. They said nothing and arrested me. I had no fear at all and clarified the truth to them in the car. They didn't listen to me and said they were just doing their job. They took me to the nearest police station, then left. In the police station, I maintained righteous thoughts and told them the facts about Falun Dafa. Finally everyone kept silent. But they still dared not let me go because the police from the provincial bureau had arrested me and taken me there. They called the head of the district 610 office.

The district 610 Office head arrived. I had no fear and treated him with compassion. I also told him the facts, but he still insisted on taking me away. I started vomiting very seriously as soon as I got in the police car. I knew that Master was helping me. I was very calm. He was afraid and said, “Didn't you say that reciting 'Falun Dafa is good' will help? Why don't you recite it right now?” I said, “Yes, it does help. You can also help me recite it.” Then he started reciting loudly “Falun Dafa is good.” We recited it together. In ten minutes I was all right. He said, “Wow, it really worked!” I said, “That's right. How could I deceive you? I am practicing Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. How could I tell lies?” As soon as we arrived at his office, he called others over, “Hey everyone, come listen to her!” I told them that Falun Dafa is the law of the universe and had spread to more than 100 countries worldwide. "This is an opportunity that one doesn't encounter in eons." I told them about how the Jiang Zemin regime started persecuting Falun Gong and that hundreds of thousands of Dafa practitioners were detained in labor camps and prisons. I explained how the CCP has killed over 80 million Chinese people. I also said that heaven is going to eliminate the CCP and that people can ensure safety only by quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

As I was clarifying the truth to them, the 610 Office head said, “All right. It's time for you to go home.” I said, “How am I to get back?” He said, “Ask your son to pick you up.” I said, “No way. This is not a private business or home business. I can't ask my son to pick me up.” He asked me, “Then who do you want to pick you up?” I said, “An officer from the police station or village officials.” He asked me, “How many people should come?” I said, “The more the better.” He then called the police station and village government.

A car from the police station arrived, and quite a few officers got out. Then a village official drove a car to pick me up. I told them what I had experienced the whole day, then continued clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa to them. Actually, I was very familiar with them. Some of them had already quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I just wanted to validate that Dafa is great, Master Li is innocent, and Dafa practitioners are saving sentient beings. I just believed that we are doing the three things in a grand and dignified way. People who know the truth should take me home in an honorable way.

After I returned home, the director of our village committee told me, “From now on no one will stop you from what you are doing, nor will your son.” It's true. Now I am doing the three things without any interference from anyone. My environment is now very favorable.
