(Minghui.org) I often noticed a lonely elderly man several years ago who pushed a walker in a park in Shenyang City. He had lots of warts on his face, sores on his head and had an uncombed appearance.

I talked to him about Falun Dafa and the persecution by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) one day. He hated the CCP for withholding his pension and thus had to survive on a small welfare check from the local community. But, because he lived in Communist China, he worried he would be targeted by the CCP for his discontentment and therefore was reluctant to agree with what I said.

When I found out that he was a scholar, I recited several articles from Essentials for Further Advancement, a book by Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, “Wealth with Virtue,” “Enlightenment,” and “Remaking Mankind.” He said: “Your Master is so great! What he said is truly enlightening!”

When I saw him a year later, his appearance had changed. He looked radiant, he only had a few warts, his hair was combed, and his eyes sparkled.

He told me that fortunetellers had predicted that he would not live beyond the age of 72. He was 71 last year and not in good health. Yet, because he had met me he was still alive, so he thanked me.

I then told him that I was merely the messenger, and he returned to good health because of Dafa. I said that he benefited from reciting “Falun Dafa is good.”

Since then, I gave him a Falun Dafa calendar every year and every year he tells me that he had a peaceful year.

“My illnesses have disappeared since you gave me the calendars. Whenever I feel any discomfort, I just recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and ask Mr. Li for help, and the symptoms disappear.”

He is 77 now. He recites “Falun Dafa is good” daily. He loves the calendars. He says he feels rejuvenated and he might teach again should the opportunity arise.
