71-Year-Old Practitioner Recovers Three Days After a Serious Accident
(Minghui.org) I was riding my tricycle when I crossed an intersection one afternoon in April 2014. A large container truck was parked in the intersection on my left, blocking my view. A car sped from the left and crashed into me. I landed five meters away, and the impact of the accident broke the metal plates on the tricycle.
I lost consciousness as I lay face down on the ground. When I woke up, the first thought that crossed my mind was that I'm a practitioner, and I knew that Master and Falun Dafa would protect me from any harm. Although I could not move, I quietly recited “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
The driver was frightened, called an ambulance and notified my family. I was taken to the hospital. The doctor, my family, and the driver insisted that I get a thorough examination. I said that I was fine and wanted to go home, even though I could not move. They refused, so I ended up staying at the hospital.
After my family left the hospital that evening, my leg begun to swell, and my pants felt tight. My left thigh was bruised and I could not walk. I wasn't worried and knew that I was fine, so I did the sitting meditation. The doctor checked on me later that evening and said I needed a physical examination. I told him that I had done the sitting meditation and I was going to be fine.
The next morning the doctor wanted to examine me. I said I felt fine and wanted to go home. The doctor finally discharged me and said that I would be responsible if something went wrong later.
I studied the Falun Dafa books when I returned home. My body started to ache that evening. I got up the next morning at 3:50 to do the exercises. When I did the sitting meditation, I was in severe pain, but I did not give up. Master must have endured a lot of karma for me, and I could not hold back my tears thinking about it.
After I finished the exercises and sent forth righteous thoughts I lay down to rest. When I woke up I had already forgotten that I had been in a car accident, as if nothing had happened. I got up to do some housework and noticed that my leg was fine.
It's unbelievable that a person my age could recover so soon after a serious accident! This experience solidified my faith in Dafa and Master even more.
I mentioned this experience when I talked to my friends and relatives about the benefits of practicing Falun Dafa. Before this happened, my second son did not want to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). But after witnessing my miraculous recovery, he happily renounced the Party.
The driver that hit me offered me compensation. I declined his offer and only let him pay for the medical bill and the repair of my tricycle. I talked to him about Falun Dafa and the persecution. He quit the CCP, and said that I was very kind for not demanding a large sum of money from him. I told him that Master asks us to be considerate of others. He wanted to learn more about Dafa, so I gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun.
