(Minghui.org) My life was miserable for 51 years. I am 70 years old now. Falun Dafa gave me a new and happy life.

Turning Point in My Life

I was born prematurely and suffered from malnutrition. My mother was often ill and died when I was five. I had many ailments, including heart disease and arthritis. I suffered from migraines, lower back pain and toothache. At the age of 37, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I could see no hope for my life.

As a mother of three, I had difficulty preparing meals for them. My husband helped with some of the household chores as I was in pain every day. My only hope was to survive another day.

I was a school teacher, but due to my poor health was reassigned to a kindergarten class to reduce my workload and I could sit down whenever I needed.

In 1993, someone introduced me to Buddhism. In a desperate hope to cure my ailments I made large donations to the Buddhist temples, kowtowed 108 times a day, and recited phrases from the scriptures whenever possible. But none of them helped. So to relieve my pain, I took lots of aspirin and other pills.

I was exhausted and felt hopeless. Then a friend told me about Falun Dafa on May 16, 1996. When watching Teacher's Fa lecture video that evening, I was deeply impressed as I believe that what I was hearing was profound and righteous. I said to Teacher in my mind, “I will practice this and not give it up, no matter what happens.”

I learned the five sets of exercises and joined others outside to do them every day. By following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, my xinxing quickly improved, my ailments miraculously disappeared, I became energetic and could do physical work, no matter big or small.

Support from My Family

My family witnessed the positive changes in me. My two cousins were so impressed that they started practicing Falun Dafa. My brother said, “From your experience, I know Falun Dafa is indeed great.”

My daughter was also very grateful to Dafa and Teacher. She said, “Falun Dafa gave me a new mother,” and also reminded me, “You will promise to be a good student and listen to Teacher. Won't you?”

Even after the persecution of Falun Dafa began in 1999, my family didn't stop supporting me because they had all seen how I had benefited from the practice.

My son-in-law, a commander in the navy, learned the facts about Falun Dafa and came to know how bad the persecution was. He, like many other relatives, agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and declared that any of his previous negative comments against Falun Dafa were null and void, as they were the made as a result of being deceived by the CCP's propaganda machine.

My husband does not practice Falun Dafa, but he knows the difference between right and wrong. As soon as the staged "self-immolation" incident appeared on the news, he knew that it was a hoax. He welcomes other practitioners in to our home to study the Fa, and also goes out with me to help distribute Falun Dafa informational materials.

Eliminating the Interference of Illness

When visiting a dentist in 2009, I was told that there was something growing between two of my teeth, and it appeared to be cancerous. I went to three different dentists, who all came to the same conclusion. I was initially scared because I remembered how my cervical cancer started many years ago. Then I realized that as a practitioner I should not be affected by this.

On the way back home, I was thinking what loopholes I had that caused the interference. I also asked Teacher for help. I found many attachments including zealotry, showing-off and the pursuit of consummation. I decided to ignore the “symptoms” and continued to practice as usual, as well as go out every day to tell people about Falun Dafa and the persecution. Things went well and many people came to knew the truth about Falun Dafa. Three days later, my teeth were fine with no trace of a growth.

My body experienced other types of interference too. A strange rash appeared on my skin in 2011. It was very itchy and I couldn't sleep well. But I knew it was not illness and continued to study the Fa as well as look within. I also sent forth righteous thoughts and asked Teacher for help. My body soon cleared up and the rash disappeared.

Telling People the Facts about Falun Dafa

Some people have hatred against Falun Dafa and are hostile towards practitioners because they have been misled by the CCP's lies and propaganda. I knew this is not good for them or their future, so I decided to tell more people about Falun Dafa and the persecution.

It was a good learning experience for me. Initially, I only felt comfortable talking to people whom I thought were kind. However, I later realized that was a human notion brought about by fear that I should let go of.

One day, another practitioner and I were talking to an old man. We asked him to quit the CCP for a safe future. He immediately grabbed the practitioner's arm and threatened to take him to the police. I went up to him and said, “Please don't treat us like this. We came here to tell you something important that is for your own good.” The man soon let go of the practitioner's arm and we left.

I still had fear when walking away. I decided to do better next time.

I chatted with a young man one time and was about to tell him about Falun Dafa, when stopped me. He said “I'm a police officer. What are you doing here?”

“I am telling you something that is important for your future,” I replied, and handed him a card carrying information about Falun Dafa on it.

“Are you against the CCP?” he questioned. “It seems that I need to call the police,” and took out his cell phone.

I smiled at him, “Young man, could you wait for a few minutes before making the call? If what I'm telling you is the truth, then you won't want to report me to the police, will you? Otherwise, you would feel regret your entire life.”

He calmed down and began to listen. I told him what Falun Dafa is, and why the CCP was dragging Chinese people on the path of no return. I also told him about the staged “self-immolation” incident. He was soon convinced and asked me to help him quit the CCP. He took more informational materials from me and left, while continually thanking me.

I once talked with a 76-year-old man. He looked healthy, but said he needed a spiritual goal. Another practitioner and I told him about Falun Dafa. He seemed deeply touched and pressed his palms together in front of him as a gesture of thanks. He also decided to renounce his membership in the CCP and its affiliated organizations. He took some Falun Dafa materials, thanked us again and left.
