(Minghui.org) My son died in an accident in 1997. Two days before his death, he said to me, “Mom, you're not in good health. Go to that place under the bridge and learn qigong.”
I didn't know what qigong was at the time, and I didn't pay attention to what he said.
I missed him so much after his death that I developed several chronic ailments. Someone later told me that the qigong exercise my son had told me about was Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa), the great Buddha Fa.
I decided to go to the exercise site to learn it. A warm current went through my body during the first two days, and I could smell incense in another dimension. It was like a hole in my head was releasing steam, and my body felt like it was floating.
I realized that this was not an ordinary qigong practice.
“In the course of samsara, you have had mothers who were human and non-human, and there are too many of them to be numbered. It is also countless how many sons and daughters you have had throughout your different lifetimes. Who is your mother? Who is your son or daughter? No one knows it after one passes away. You must still pay for what you owe others.” (Zhuan Falun)
Through Fa study, I realized that I needed to let go of sentimentality and regard the tribulations in my life as repaying karma.
I established a Fa study group in my home. There were just four or five of us when we started out, but that soon increased to more than 30. We did the exercises in the morning and studied the Fa in the evening. When we encountered problems or interpersonal conflicts, we looked within for the reason. We learned from each other and helped one another.
The pain of missing my son gradually faded. My ailments, including heart disease and rheumatism, also disappeared.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the persecution of Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, but I was determined to continue practicing. I followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person.
Those close to me witnessed the positive changes in my attitude and behavior, and they all supported me in the practice. They were also willing to accept information about Falun Gong.
My boss saw that I did my job well, so he didn't try to force me to sign any documents to say I would give up practicing, which he was instructed to do by the authorities.
I talked to everyone who had a predestined relationship with me and told them about Falun Gong and the persecution. Someone told me that they recited 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' as they walked, and their body felt light and illness-free.
Another person said, “I had a hard time sleeping for the past 10 years, Now I recite 'Falun Dafa is good' and I can sleep throughout the night. I am so grateful to your Master for helping me!”
My husband found an abandoned baby in 1999 and brought her home. She only looked a few weeks old and was disabled. My family didn't want to take the baby, but I said, “This is also a life. I am a practitioner and will ask for Master's help. She will grow up well.”
I played the recordings of Master's teachings to her every day. She learned to walk when she was about five and speak at the age of eight. When we took her to a large hospital to be examined, the doctor said that she had severe learning difficulties and would require lifelong care.
I didn't give up on her. I sent her to a regular school in the daytime and read Zhuan Falun to her in the evening. A year later, she could read Zhuan Falun by herself.
She now helps senior practitioners to register online the names of those who want to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. She also downloads weekly journals and other materials from the Minghui website. Great, benevolent Master saved her. This is Dafa's miracle!
I now go out with my daughter to clarify the truth every day. I do the talking, while she sends forth righteous thoughts and writes down the names of people who want to quit the CCP. Other practitioners affectionately call her “Little Secretary.” We coordinate well and help 5 to 20 people quit the CCP every day.
I've talked to all kinds of people—farmers, government officials, and even the head of the county. I let them know that Falun Gong is practiced in more than 100 countries around the world, that practitioners follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be good people, and that we use our own money to print information about Dafa for people to read.
If this information is explained clearly, people are eager to quit the CCP.
A school principal once asked me about my education, because he thought I spoke so well and was able to answer all his questions. I told him, “I didn't get a formal education, my Master has taught me everything I need to know.” He then said that he wanted to quit the CCP.
Another practitioner and I were reported to the police while talking to people about Falun Gong in 2012 and were detained for 15 days.
I was not frightened in the police station. I just remembered that Master said:
“If you can let go of life and death, you’re a God; if you can’t let go of life and death, you’re a human...” (“Teaching the Fa in New York City”)
I told the police about Falun Gong and the persecution and told them to be kind to practitioners. One officer was furious and asked how I dared to say that in their presence. I replied calmly, “What I said is the truth.”
Two days later, I was released.
Master let me see Buddhas in other dimensions when I cultivated well. I saw a great Buddha looking at me, expecting me to go back to heaven soon.
I often remind my daughter to be diligent in cultivation and cherish this rare opportunity. Dafa has saved both of us. Thank you, great benevolent Master, for leading us to the path to return to our true home.
