“Falun Dafa Is Simply Amazing”
(Minghui.org) My father was recently hospitalized after having a stroke. While I stayed by his bed to take care of him, I told the patient who shared the same room and his wife about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
At first the elderly couple refused to listen. They said, “We think 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' is good, but we are both retired and survive on the pension given to us by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).”
The Party Does Not Provide Gifts
I informed the lady that their retirement pension is not a gift from the Party. I said “You earned it. The Party has pocketed the profits we worked so hard for. What the Party has given us is far less than we deserve. In any normal society, if we put in the same amount of effort we have under the communist regime, our returns would be several times greater than what we get now.”
“The Party does nothing. Where do you think its money comes from? It's from us, the taxpayers. We are the ones who support the Party.”
Believing the CCPs Lies and Propaganda
She was silent for a while, before saying that Falun Gong practitioners involved in the Self-Immolation incident on Tiananmen Square were truly terrifying.
I said, “Do you really believe that I would set fire to myself?” She replied, “No. You seem very kind and decent.”
I continued, “Dafa practitioners are very kind and live according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. We always strive to treat people with compassion and put their interests before ours. Do you believe such people would set themselves on fire? The Self-Immolation was a hoax orchestrated by Jiang Zemin (former CCP head) and his gang of thugs. It was done to stir up hatred against practitioners, so they can justify the persecution.”
I continued to ask her, “If everyone conducted themselves according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, would there be any lies, corruption or violence in our society?”
“I Want to Learn Falun Dafa Right Now”
I told the lady that I have been practicing Falun Dafa for over 10 years and talked about the health benefits I've enjoyed since I started practicing. I also told her some of the moving stories of practitioners that have been published on the Minghui website.
The elderly couple listened attentively. Then the lady said, “I want to learn Falun Dafa right now.” She told her husband to recite 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' and 'Falun Dafa is good'.”
I turned on my MP3 and started to teach them the exercises.
When I had finished I gave the lady an audio tape of the exercise music that I had borrowed from another practitioner, a Shen Yun performance DVD, the software that allows her to surf the web freely without censorship, and some Dafa informational materials. She also took my contact number before she went home.
“Falun Dafa Is Truly Amazing”
The next day, she hurried into the ward, eager to tell me something.
She said, “Falun Dafa is truly amazing! After I got home yesterday, I suddenly had excruciating back pain and couldn't walk. Then I remembered what you told me about reciting 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' and 'Falun Dafa is good.' After I did that, I heard a cracking sound in my back. The pain had gone and I could walk!”
Her husband said happily, “From now on, we will recite 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' and 'Falun Dafa is good' every day.
Whenever I have a chance to visit my friends or relatives in the hospital, I always tell others about Dafa and teach them the exercises. I do not wish to overlook anyone who is predestined to learn about Dafa.
