Falun Dafa Improved My Family and College Life
(Minghui.org) I come from an typical rural family in Hebei Province. Both my parents are peasants, so our family's income was meager. My mother suffered from a number of illnesses, but because we had no money for medical treatment she had no choice but to endure it.
My aunt is a Falun Dafa practitioner and often visited us. She told us how good the practice was, but because of the defamatory propaganda in the media we had many misunderstandings and did not listen to her. She was not upset or annoyed, and continued to tell us about the practice.
“This Is the Only Hope for You”
My mother became severely ill when I was in my sophomore year at college. She could not even walk. We had enough money to send her to a local hospital, but the doctors could not find what was causing her symptoms. My father lost hope and began preparing for her funeral.
My aunt came to visit, and brought along a copy of the book Zhuan Falun and an MP3 audio player containing the lectures by Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa. “Give this a try,” she suggested to my mother, adding, “This is the only hope for you now.” This time mother did not argue and simply followed her advice.
My mother listened to an audio lecture and found that she was able to sit up later that day. She learned how to do the exercises and started doing them every day. Her health completely recovered.
Amazed by what happened to my mother, both my father and I also started to practice.
I have suffered from a bowel disease since middle school and sometimes had to continuously run to the bathroom. Several days after I started practicing Falun Dafa, I noticed the disease was no longer playing up. I was glad that my life had finally returned to normal. As I continued doing the exercises, the acne on my face, which had been untreatable no matter what methods I tried, totally disappeared.
I then had the symptoms of hemorrhoids. Because of the discomfort and the pain, I used some medicine that a friend bought for me. But instead of helping, the pain increased. Realizing that I had done the wrong thing, I called my mother for advice. She reminded me of the section “Your Mind Must be Right” in Zhuan Falun. I regretted my poor enlightenment quality and wanted to apologize to Master Li. As I had that thought, the pain stopped and I was able to sit up. The next day I had fully recovered, and was reminded that Falun Dafa is truly miraculous.
Guidance in My Life
I witnessed the decadent and corrupt lifestyles and the totalitarian power of high-ranking officials when I attended college in Beijing. But Falun Dafa guided me, helped me resist various temptations, and allowed me to stick to my path.
I planned to pursue a Master's degree, but my parents could not afford it. My father felt very bad about it. My mother told me to continue doing what I had planned, and that Master would help us if necessary. I followed her advice and passed the exam with great marks. I was able to enroll in a graduate program with a scholarship. I was very touched by Master's care and compassion.
I now have my Master's degree and have found a job. Because my bus commute takes about an hour each way, I often spend the time reciting Zhuan Falun. I am so grateful that I am a Dafa practitioner. Master has helped me so much.
