[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Master Saved Me and My Husband
(Minghui.org) I got married when I was 27. I had no idea that this was the beginning of a miserable life.
My husband was an alcoholic. Whenever he came home drunk, he beat me badly. After my son was born, there was no sign of improvement. When my son was just a few years old, he sometimes drove both of us out into the yard and kept the door shut for two or three hours.
The beatings left me with an injured body and a broken heart. But I had to keep on.
Even worse, his relatives mistreated me too, from my mother-in-law, to my sisters and brothers-in-law. I thought of taking my own life and attempted to do so once or twice. Fortunately, I failed.
I was introduced to Falun Gong in 1998. After reading Zhuan Falun, I understood that my hardship was the result of my previous lives. Master said:
“In cultivation, there may be two scenarios when dealing with specific conflicts or when others treat you badly. One is that you might have treated this person badly in your previous life. You feel in your heart that it is unfair, “How can this person treat me like this?” Then why did you treat this person that way in the past? You might claim that you actually did not know it at that time, and this lifetime has nothing to do with another lifetime, but that won’t do. There is another issue. In conflicts, the issue of transforming karma is involved. Therefore, when actually dealing with conflicts we should take the high road instead of acting like everyday people.” (Zhuan Falun)
Shortly after I began practicing Falun Gong, all of my illnesses disappeared. Most importantly, my heart lightened up. I no longer had feelings of hatred toward my husband and his family, and I could calmly handle what he did to me.
After the persecution of Falun Gong began, I was given two years of forced labor since I refused to give up the practice. My husband visited me every month during my detention. He told me that he was afraid the guards would mistreat me. I felt his sincere kindness.
Master Saved My Husband for the First Time
After I was released, my husband was afraid that I would be persecuted again and no longer allowed me to practice Falun Gong. He beat me when he saw me doing the exercises or reading Zhuan Falun.
But shortly afterwards, he was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver, with severe ascites. His belly swelled up. When we went to the hospital, the doctor told us to prepare for his funeral. But I told him that he would recover because I am a Falun Gong practitioner and Master said "with one person practicing, the whole family benefits." (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
He was admitted to the hospital. That night, my sister-in-law stayed with him. I came home and stayed up all night. I studied the Fa and did the exercises. I asked Master to help my husband.
When I visited him the next morning, his belly was no longer swollen. I was moved and told him what I had done the night before. My nephew, who was at the hospital at the time, said to me, "My uncle was so lucky that you practice Falun Gong." My husband smiled but did not say anything. But I could tell that he acknowledged the power of Dafa. He recovered completely and was discharged from the hospital 27 days later.
I followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and took good care of my husband. I also sincerely helped the families of his brothers and sisters and looked lightly on their inappropriate behavior. Now, they have shown me a great deal of respect.
Saved from a Coal Mine Accident
My husband was a coal miner. Once, when he was working, the coal cart he was riding in overturned. His colleagues on the cart all lost their lives, but he survived.
When he told me the story, I realized that Dafa had saved him. I had put a Dafa amulet in his coat pocket. He felt very fortunate and grateful that he had not thrown it away.
After that, my husband no longer opposed my practicing Dafa. I was really happy for his change.
My Husband Survived a Relapse of Liver Cirrhosis
My husband's cirrhosis and severe ascites relapsed in 2010. It was so severe that he was shaking while walking. He was afraid that he would die this time.
I sincerely told him that Master would take care of him, as he had to live to listen to the truth since I had not told him everything yet. He was touched to hear that.
Three weeks later, my husband recovered. Master had saved his life again.
He began to listen to Master's lecture while I played the audio recordings at home. His bad temper disappeared.
I sincerely thank Master and Dafa from the bottom of my heart. It saved me and my husband, and also resolved the karmic relationship between us. Dafa can resolve everything for us, as long as we firmly believe.
