How an Entire Family Benefited from Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) My memories of my childhood are pretty grim. My mother suffered from severe bleeding, was not able to work, and her condition worsened. My father and my elder brother worked far away from home, but their wages were not enough to pay for my mother's health care.
My family was very poor, and our neighbors despised us. I often looked up to heaven and asked why we had to suffer like this.
Good fortune came to my family in the spring of 1997. My parents began to practice Falun Dafa. My mother no longer suffered from any health problems a short time after she practiced Dafa.
My entire family began to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. We all enjoyed good health and lived together in harmony.
Grandma Came Back from the Death's Door
My grandmother quarreled with her daughter-in-law in 1999 and, in a fit of anger,tried to commit suicide by drinking poison. She vomited a lot of blood. When my mother found her, she was in bed and couldn't move. My mother told her, “Falun Dafa is brilliant. Come to practice with us!” Grandma nodded, stayed with our family, and practiced Dafa.
After Grandma recovered, she had a sudden pain in her chest, went into a coma, and no pulse could be detected. Our relatives came a few hours later to prepare for her funeral, but Grandma regained her consciousness!
“I climbed to the top of a mountain and saw many many people practicing Falun Dafa. We should hurry up and practice Falun Dafa,” she said.
Everyone witnessed her return to life and said, “She died and was revived. People practicing Falun Dafa are really special!”
Now Grandma is 86 years old, and can still do farm work. She harvests the rice, digs up potatoes and gathers firewood. She also keeps a few pigs. She has even more energy than when she was young.
A Bully Becomes a Practitioner
My brother-in-law was a notorious bully and also stole and fought with people.
Because many people practiced Dafa in our area in 1998, my brother-in-law became curious. He watched a video in which Master taught the Fa. He was struck by how different Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance was from his fighting and stealing.
He used fighting and violence to solve problems. He realized that his bad ways did not really do him any good. The instant gratification was always short lived and then was followed by a feeling of insecurity, worry, and fear. He often wondered what the purpose of his life was.
He found answers when he listened to the Fa and thought that the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance could help him change. He abandoned his bad habits and became a kind and friendly person.
One of my uncles suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and muscular atrophy. He could not even carry two pounds of noodles and had not worked for many years.
When he started to practice Falun Dafa in 1999, his knees began to swell and feel numb. When he cut firewood, he accidentally cut his knee, but he did not feel any pain. A few days later, his knee was no longer swollen. Soon after that, his leg muscles became normal.
He also came down with a runny nose for over 80 days. After it cleared up, he became full of energy and no longer was in pain. Now he can carry heavy loads and work perfectly fine.
Husband Quietly Accepts Dafa
My elder sister also practiced Falun Dafa. Her husband often heard from us about how good and amazing Falun Dafa was, but he still refused to let my sister practice it and sometimes even beat her.
Her husband could not stretch his arms backwards, so he often visited a massage therapist, which cost a lot of money. My sister advised him, “Just say, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,' and you will soon feel better.” He didn't respond.
One day he kept belching and could not stop. He then secretly said, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,' and the belching suddenly stopped! He even surprised himself. After that, he allowed my sister to practice Dafa.
