Villagers All Witness How My 87-year-old Mother Was Cured after Saying "Falun Dafa Is Good"
(Minghui.org) My hometown is Donggang Village, Zaoyang City, Hubei Province. It is a large and densely populated village located on an vast plain. It is the kind of place where whatever happens in one family quickly spreads to everyone.
My mom is 87 this year. She likes helping others, and everyone in the village likes her. My brother is the former village head and is well known. All my relatives understand the truth about Falun Gong, and they all believe that Falun Dafa is good. Consequently my brother's family is prosperous and happy and all his children secured well-paying jobs in town.
Last March, I had an Internet chat with my daughter-in-law and learned that Mom had developed a condition that caused her head to shake uncontrollably. I hadn’t returned to my hometown for several years. After the communist regime began persecuting Falun Gong in July 1999, I'd been severely persecuted physically and financially. My family didn’t tell me about my mom’s condition, because they didn’t want me to return home and spend money which would add to my financial burden. In fact, my mom had had this condition for more than a year, but it seriously worsened this last March. Other villagers with the same symptom had apparently already passed away.
A devastating diagnosis, a drastic response
My brother invited the best doctor in the village to examine her. After he saw her, the doctor said, “There is no cure--it is a symptom of Alzheimer's.”
When my mom heard this, she was in despair. All my family members worked outside the village except for my brother, who has stayed home to take care of her. One day when my brother was away, Mom drank a toxic farm chemical attempting to commit suicide so that she wouldn't be a burden to the family. My brother didn’t know what happened until he returned home and saw her vomiting. Fortunately, Mom did not die. Afterwards, however, her head shaking became worse, and now even her whole body began shaking.
My brother asked the doctor to examine her again, and the doctor put my mom on an intravenous drip. But even with all this going on, my brother didn’t bother contacting me. It wasn't until the end of March that I was informed. I quickly returned home with my older sister who had learned the facts about Falun Dafa and who had also witnessed first-hand many miracles brought about by Dafa.
Please say "Falun Dafa is good"
I asked my mom to recite “Falun Dafa is good.” She was unwilling to at first. My older sister told her, “Just take a look at your daughter [meaning me]. She has cultivated for so many years and she looks younger and younger. This practice must be very good. You should listen to her. Don’t worry about anything. Just recite the words.” We then taught her to recite the sentence.
Because Mom's hearing is very poor, we had to repeat the words into her ears one by one. As we did this, I sent forth righteous thoughts and silently asked Master for help to settle her malevolent predestined relationships with a benevolent solution.
"Just by reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good,’ I completely recovered."
After she recited the sentence for four days, her head stopped shaking. On the fifth day she was able to get up and walk around. My older sister and I took her with us to clarify the truth to the villagers.
She hadn’t gone outside for more than a year. Everyone was surprised to see her and expressed their amazement over Dafa’s miraculous healing power. They all asked for informational materials, and some came to our home to learn more about Dafa.
When I returned home this time, I brought many posters that said “Falun Dafa is good.” I originally planned to put them outside. But witnessing my mom’s miraculous recovery and seeing the posters in her room, everyone asked for one. Some people took more than one, saying that they wanted to present them to their relatives.
For several days we walked around the village with my mom. One villager was shocked at her incredible recovery and asked, “Are you really well now?” My mom replied, “Absolutely. Just by reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good,’ I completely recovered. It's not hard. You should do it!”
My sister-in-law’s grandson always cried at a certain time in the evening. She and her husband tried many things to soothe him, but nothing worked. I told her to recite “Falun Dafa is good” to her grandson before he fell asleep. She did, and five days later her grandson stopped crying and never did it again. Afterward they told whoever they met that Falun Dafa is really good.
All the villagers witnessed what Dafa did for my mother. They said, “This is really miraculous! One can be cured by reciting a single sentence. How come people are not allowed to follow such a good practice? The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is going to hell. No wonder people won't give up practicing Falun Gong despite the harsh persecution. It turns out that Falun Gong really is good!”
My older sister said to me, “Now I truly understand why you practitioners are steadfast in your belief.” After she returned to her workplace, she also began actively clarifying the truth.
I very much appreciate Master, not only for curing my mom, but also for saving sentient beings in my hometown. Thank you, Master!
