Family Members Experience the Power of Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I was twice asked to practice Falun Dafa, but chose not to. The founder of this cultivation practice, Mr. Li Hongzhi, did not give up on me, and granted me additional opportunities to begin practicing.
One of my sisters was the first person in our family to practice Falun Dafa. Soon after she began to practice, her heart disease and tuberculosis vanished.
She asked me to read Hong Yin, a book of poems by Mr. Li, who is also called Master Li, a term of respect in the East. I only read several pages and put the book aside because I did not understand it.
Another sister began practicing after one of her neighbors gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa. The neighbor said that she had benefited greatly, and that Dafa could help my sister. My sister trusted her and began practicing.
Predestined Relationship with Dafa
This sister asked me to go with her to the practice site. She gave me Zhuan Falun and asked me to read it. She also played Mr. Li's videos lectures for me. This was the first time I had ever seen Mr. Li, but he looked very familiar. My sister laughed, and said I must have a predestined relationship to learn Falun Dafa. However, I again chose not to.
My husband began to show signs of mental illness in late 1997. We worked for the same employer, and because the business had financial problems, we were each paid only 100 yuan per month. Making things worse, I had pneumonia.
One of my co-workers told me that only Dafa could help us. She asked me to read Zhuan Falun, and told me that the book would help me understand all of our problems. I felt that I had run out of options, so I began practicing. My pneumonia disappeared and my husband also recovered, although he did not practice.
After other family members saw how my sisters and I improved, they also began to study Dafa. They and others close to them benefited. For example, another sister of ours was unable to take care of herself. She often laughed and cried for no reason. Now 83, she is clear-minded and can take care of herself.
Following Upright Principles
I worked in a warehouse. I used to think it was acceptable to take home merchandise from the company. Falun Dafa taught me that if I take something that is not mine, I will lose virtue and good fortune, so I stopped stealing.
My family used to run a Mahjong gambling club. After I began to practice Falun Dafa, I asked my husband to close the business. He said that we did not steal from anyone, and because we earned so little at our regular jobs, we needed the club. I told him that we should not earn dirty money, so we rented out the space where we were running the club.
We used to run the electric meter backwards at the end of each month. I told my husband that we were stealing, which was against Dafa. My husband agreed, and we stopped.
Once when I went to the bank to make a withdrawal, the cashier gave me 50 yuan too much. I told her that she had counted incorrectly. I gave her the money, she counted it, and her face turned red. She thanked me. I told her that I practiced Falun Dafa and to please remember that Falun Dafa is good.
Dafa Displays Its Power
My son developed acute pancreatitis in December 2002. He was hospitalized, screaming in pain. I asked Master Li to help me during the almost six-hour trip to the hospital.
As soon as I entered my son's room, I started playing Master Li’s audio lectures. The other patients in the room asked how he could hear anything, being in such agony. After less than a minute, my son stopped screaming. The other patients were stunned.
My son recovered quickly, which also amazed the other patients. I took this opportunity to tell them about Falun Dafa. My son worried that I would be arrested and said that I did not need to talk to them if they refused to listen. I told him that he had benefited from Dafa, so we should tell them about the goodness of the practice.
I spoke to each patient individually. One was a local government official and would not listen. However, his wife witnessed my son’s improvement and said that the son of one of her co-workers had blood cancer. I told her only Falun Dafa could save him. “Tell him to recite 'Falun Dafa is good,'” I said. She said she would.
My husband developed heart disease, and his belly swelled. The doctor said he needed to stay in the hospital, but I kept my faith in Master Li and Dafa. My husband decided to stay at home. Every day I read Zhuan Falun to him and asked him to recite “Falun Dafa is good.”
In the evenings I went out to help people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), then went home to do the exercises and send forth righteous thoughts. My husband felt comfortable while I did either.
He read Master’s articles and Dafa informational materials whenever he couldn’t sleep. The swelling of his abdomen gradually disappeared. He could soon climb to the sixth floor without becoming short of breath, and did our grocery shopping.
My entire family is grateful to Dafa and Master Li. We have all benefited from this wonderful cultivation practice.
