(Minghui.org) During the second half of 1996, Falun Dafa began to spread rapidly by word of mouth throughout Ningde City in Fujian Province, China.
Falun Dafa’s remarkable healing power and ability to uplift the mind created an unprecedented fervor in this area for learning the practice.
(Continued from Part 1)
Before she began Falun Dafa cultivation practice, Ms. Chen Jinhui suffered from multiple illnesses, including stomach problems, rheumatism, heart disease, liver disease, and high blood pressure. She needed frequent hospitalization.
Various medical treatments proved ineffective, especially for her chronic diseases, which had tortured her for half her life. Her pain and suffering was impossible to describe with words.
One day on October 1997, Chen saw a group of people doing Falun Dafa exercises. She was attracted by the peaceful and benevolent energy that was emitted.
She joined them the next day. Thus began her journey on Dafa’s cultivation path.
Chen has since strived to live her life in accordance with Dafa’s teachings of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Not only was the level of her morality raised, her diseases disappeared. She now walks with a spring in every step.
When the Communist Party launched its persecution of Falun Dafa in July 1999, Chen had been abducted multiple times, had her home raided, had been thrown into jail, held in a forced labor camp, held in an iron cage, and tortured with sleep deprivation for six days…
Yet no amount of torture could make Chen waver from her staunch belief in Falun Dafa.
She proclaimed, “Falun Dafa is an authentic superior Buddha Law. That is an absolute truth. I will practice to the end, and never turn back!”
Ms. Chen Xingguang was a manager at the Industrial and Commercial Bank. Her career was enviable, but her health was regrettable. She suffered from back pain, leg pain, dizziness, vertigo, and weakness of the limbs.
She sought constant Chinese medical treatment, and took Chinese herbs every two to three days. But she was getting so tired of taking medicine that she kept thinking, “Is there a special something that could give me a healthy body without medicine?”
Chen found that special something in May 1999, that eliminated all of her diseases. She found Falun Dafa.
With in-depth and diligent study of Falun Dafa’s main text, Zhuan Falun, written by Dafa’s Master Li Hongzhi, Chen learned that Falun Dafa is a superior cultivation way of the Buddha school, that Falun Dafa’s teaching is based on its principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and that practitioners can raise their levels through cultivating xinxing.
Chen came to understand not only the truth of the universe, the meaning of life, and the reasons for sicknesses, but also learned how to eliminate the “self,” and think of others first, to become a genuinely good person.
Chen also understood that everything under heaven and on earth can be answered and resolved clearly and thoroughly from the lofty and virtuous Great Law of Falun Dafa.
From then on, Falun Dafa became for Chen her only pursuit and lifetime belief.
During the long years of persecution, Chen has experienced multiple arrests, home raids, being locked up in a detention center, being held in a forced labor camp, serving a five-year prison term. She has also suffered extreme tortures, yet she has remained unshakeable, and continues to solidly cultivate Falun Dafa.
Ms. Ma Cuiying was a sickly person through and through. She suffered from nephritis, rhinitis, allergic scabies, neurasthenia, gynecological problems, dizziness, tinnitus, weakness, and other symptoms.
Her health condition was extremely serious. During the hot summer, Ma would shiver under a winter blanket. No amount of Chinese or Western medicine helped. She was just passing her days in frustrating bitterness and pain.
Then, Ma’s life was turned around. She found Falun Dafa.
She had just practiced for about 20 days when she realized that her medical problems had all disappeared.
Ma said excitedly, “Dafa has saved me. Dafa’s Master has given me a second life. Without Master’s mighty compassion and magnanimous grace, I would have left this world!”
Through Dafa cultivation, Ma learned how to be a good person, how to rid herself of her selfish heart, how to be considerate of others.
Even in the forced labor camp, Ma still thought of others first, and tried to be helpful, so she could get along with everyone, even under the extremely difficult situation.
She consistently follows Master’s teachings to look inward and rectify her every thought and deed.
She said, “Dafa is such a wonderful cultivation way, but the communist regime chooses to persecute good people. They won’t let me be a good person. This is unprecedented barbarism that I can’t accept and won’t give in to, not even to my last breath.
“In fact, for the last 16 years, because I continue to practice Falun Dafa to be a good person, the persecution that has been heaped on me has not stopped.”
Ma has been abducted four times, had her home ransacked multiple times, has been sent to a force labor camp twice, and has been sentenced to a four-year prison term.
She has suffered being held in an iron cage, having her head forcibly banged against the wall, been slapped, forced fed, and been subjected to many other forms of inhumane treatment.
Through all of this, Ma has remained a faithful Falun Dafa practitioner.
Ms. Li Sulian suffered from dizziness, osteoarthritis, arthritis, rheumatism, back pain, and other ailments. No amount of medical treatment offered relief or improvement in her condition.
Li had thus been resigned to a life of pain and suffering with no relief in sight. It is impossible to imagine how she passed her days.
Li started practicing Falun Dafa in March 1993. The physical problems that had her under their grips for over a decade disappeared completely overnight.
She grew stronger each day. She took long walks, and did all the household chores. Nothing could tire her out. She finally experienced the joyous feeling of being disease-free. She became optimistic and cheerful.
Li’s daughter has a handicap. She only has one arm. Li constantly felt bitter resentment over that. She used to hit and berate her daughter over mere trifles.
With understandings that come from Falun Dafa practice, Li stopped her feeling of resentment, and became mild-tempered and tolerant. Her family environment is now without strife or grudges, and full of harmony.
A decade of pain and suffering was replaced by joy and warmth, thanks to Falun Dafa!
Ms. Zheng Rongzhu was 19 years old when she develped a strange disease. She was constantly dizzy. She couldn’t touch water, and was even afraid of rain. She also couldn’t stand sunshine. So she was afraid to go out to interact with people.
Her stomach was weak. As soon as she ate, she would feel the need to eliminate, so she was afraid to eat. She didn’t feel like eating anyway. Nor did she know what hunger meant.
All the joints in her entire body ached, and she was anemic. Medical treatments didn’t help, much less cure her.
Because of her diseases, all the household chores fell on the shoulders of her mother and sister-in-law. At a young age, Zheng was passing her days like a living dead person.
Eleven days after the Chinese New Year in 1999, Zheng started practicing Falun Dafa. Very soon, a miracle happened. She came alive. She was able to help with household chores. She could do laundry and cook meals.
She then found a job. Her pay was eventually enough to not only support the family, but to also build a five-story building. She became the financial mainstay of her family.
Originally, Zheng was an illiterate, but after cultivating in Falun Dafa, she learned how to read. She was originally only able to speak in her local dialect, but after cultivating, she learned to speak Mandarin, the national language.
From an essentially living dead person, Zheng transformed into a most capable individual, full of life and vitality, and professional achievements.
Zheng said, “If it were not for Dafa’s Master, I would have remained a living dead person. Dafa’s Master saved my life.”
When the communist regime launched the persecution on Falun Dafa, Zheng was locked up and tortured. The police tried to transform her and coerce her into giving up the practice.
Zheng told them, “I was sickly since I was 19 years old. I sought help from doctors all over the country. Even well-known Chinese and Western specialists could not cure my diseases. Falun Dafa did. After I started Falun Dafa practice, all my diseases were cured. I have not seen a doctor for 17 years, nor have I taken a single pill. Such a wonderful cultivation practice, and you want me to give it up? How can that be possible?!”
Ms. Yang Guimei once suffered from year-round headaches, frequent nightmares, amnesia, joint pain, and gynecological diseases. She felt that life was not worth living.
Even her doctor remarked she was like a bad machine, no matter how much repair work was performed on it, it would still be a bad machine.
One October morning in 1998, Yang saw people doing Falun Dafa exercises in a park. She was attracted by the lovely music and the gentle movements. She felt immensely peaceful and comfortable.
Somebody asked her, “Do you want to learn?”
This was how Yang entered into Dafa cultivation practice. She learned the five sets of exercises, and read Falun Dafa’s main text, Zhuan Falun.
Gradually, she became able to eat and sleep well. She congratulated herself for having found her lifeline.
With cultivation, Yang’s xinxing continues to rise, and her physical condition continues to improve.
Yang works hard at her job. She treats everyone with kindness and compassion.
Dafa cultivation injected new energy into her “bad machine,” leaving her full of vitality and immense strength.
The persecution of Falun Dafa led to Yang’s being abducted and locked up, her home raided, and her wages garnished, but nothing can destroy her faith in Dafa or her determination to remain a solid practitioner.
Mr. Zheng Jing learned from his mother that since birth, he had been fragile and sickly, and that the diseases he had were surprising varied.
Zheng himself made a calculation. In the span of four decades, the total number of known major and minor diseases he had, added up to 27, and this only included those he knew about and could name.
Right before he began practicing Falun Dafa, his more than 40 years of suffering from diseases which had tortured him to practically beyond recognition, he experienced the onset of a few major, almost fatal, diseases which placed him at the brink of death.
The two most serious ones even stumped prominent doctors from well-known hospitals.
Luckily, he was not fated to die just yet. He is still alive today thanks to Falun Dafa.
In January 1999, a kindhearted person introduced Zheng to Falun Dafa, and told him that if he sincerely and diligently studied the Fa and did the exercises, he would definitely get better.
Zheng wasn’t completely convinced, but felt it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try.
Several days after he finished reading through Falun Dafa’s main text, Zhuan Falun, he realized to his surprise, that his stomach problem seemed to have disappeared, because he felt like eating. He has since been able to eat whatever he wants.
Zheng continued practicing and cultivate according to Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. As he continued to raise his xinxing, his diseases disappeared one after another, until all 27 of them were gone.
Dafa cultivation has now become his one goal in life.
