[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Master Li Saved My Husband’s Life
(Minghui.org) As part of the celebration of World Falun Dafa Day, I would like to share a miracle that happened to our family and express our deep gratitude to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa.
I started practicing Falun Dafa in August 1995 because I had heard of its health benefits.
Later, I read the book Zhuan Falun and learned that Falun Dafa is a high-level cultivation practice of the Buddha School. I also understood that Falun Dafa has strict requirements in the cultivation of one's xinxing and character, and that one can become truly healthy only by conducting oneself by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
So I started to follow these principles in my daily life, from being kind to others to always looking within myself for shortcomings when conflicts arise. I practiced tolerance and would not strike back when hit or swear back when cursed at.
I also did the Falun dafa exercises diligently, and soon my persistent ailments, including periarthritis and hemorrhoids, all disappeared without a trace.
Seeing the benefits of Falun Dafa, my husband said to me, “It’s such a good practice. Keep it up!”
However, he did not take up the practice himself at the time, saying, “You can practice. As for me, I’ll think about it later.”
Still, I reminded him to remember “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
My Husband Injured
My husband was hit by a truck on the morning of March 29, 2007 while riding his motorbike home.
It was a rainy day. The truck driver wanted to take off initially after hitting my husband, but he was stopped by a kindhearted passerby. So he called the police and ambulance service, and my husband was taken to the county hospital.
I was shocked upon receiving the terrible news. Luckily, my mom, who also practices Falun Gong, was visiting us that day.
“Don’t worry. He'll be fine,” she told me calmly. “Master once said ‘with one person practicing, the whole family benefits.’”
Having Faith in Master and Dafa
We rushed to the hospital. My husband was beyond recognition; his body was covered in mud and blood.
The diagnosis was heart-wrenching: the damage to his brain was severe, and his brain stem was broken. All the blood clots in his brain made it inoperable.
In order to minimize vibration to his brain, doctors cut an opening in his windpipe and inserted an endotracheal tube. My husband’s body was connected to various monitoring machines with tubes.
Mom and I kept calling his name and reciting “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” while asking Master for help in our hearts.
My husband’s condition deteriorated on the third day. His breathing became very feeble, and his pupils gradually began to dilate. Doctor Li, the chief doctor in charge of my husband’s case, told us that his injuries were too severe and that the chances of him being saved were almost nonexistent. He said no more emergency treatment was needed and told us to go home and prepare for his funeral.
I told him that I am a Dafa practitioner, and that with our Master’s protection, miracles would happen. I asked him to give it another try.
“I hope you're right,” he said, unconvinced.
I then said to Master in my heart: Master, please help save my husband’s life.
After over an hour of emergency treatment, my husband started breathing again.
Even the doctors kept saying, “It's a miracle! It's really a miracle!”
However, doctors said that even if my husband survived, he would remain in a vegetative state. He was in a coma for so long that doctors did not hold out much hope for anything better.
I played Master’s lectures and Dafa songs to my husband every day on an MP3 player.
On the fifty-third day, my husband regained consciousness, but he could not talk.
When Doctor Li told me that it was because an opening was cut in his windpipe, I said to him, “My husband still can't talk almost two months after his windpipe was cut open. How could Liu Siying, the little girl in the “self-immolation” on Tiananmen Square shown on CCTV, talk clearly and even sing when she was interviewed by a reporter only four days after her windpipe was supposedly cut open?” I explained that the “self-immolation” was a hoax broadcast on TV to stir up public hatred of Falun Dafa.
The doctor smiled and didn’t say anything.
Ten days later, he was able to talk in a husky voice.
“Master Li saved me from Hell,” he said to me. “He even fed me two bowls of herbal medicine in person. I would have long been buried if it hadn’t been for Master Li. I want to practice Falun Gong, too.”
'Truly a miracle in medical history'
Doctor Wang, a well-known brain specialist in Beijing, said to us, “I’ve never seen anything like this in my many years of practice. This is truly a miracle in medical history!”
Now, my husband and I read Zhuan Falun and do the Dafa exercises every day. He can also do some simple household chores, and his health is getting better and better.
Thank you, Master Li, for giving my husband a second life.
