My Brothers Changed After They Experienced Falun Dafa in Their Hearts
(Minghui.org) My older brother, aged 66, witnessed that I had changed a lot after I began to practice Falun Dafa, and thus thought to give it a try. But, he did not read the entire Falun Dafa book Zhuan Falun. He claimed that he had been brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for many decades, and that atheism and evolutionary theories were already deeply rooted in his mind, stopping him from accepting the Fa principles.
“I find Zhuan Falun hard to understand,” he said, “so how could I follow the teachings? I can't practice!” I suggested that he read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and Dissolving the Party Culture, but it did not improve his understanding.
After thinking about the issue for a while, I suggested that he copy the book because only mechanical work was involved and there was no need to think. But he had not written anything since quitting school, therefore such a task was too demanding. Then, my younger brother got involved. He asked, “Do you want to be as good as she is?” He nodded and said, “Yes!” “Then, you do the copying!”
My older brother had been on sick leave for some time and did not earn much. He used to live with our mother. After she passed away, I gave him the money I had contributed to her living. I considered this to be a scholarship.
He agreed to copy Zhuan Falun and took six months to copy the entire book. While reading, his physical condition improved. Looking at his handwriting, I really could not give him any compliment, yet the changes that happened to him were truly amazing.
Every single step was steady instead of wobbly slow. He had rosy cheeks and his eyes shone bright. Most of his silver hair turned black and he looked much younger.
The most stunning change was in his attitude. In the past, he was a penny pincher. He caught everyone by surprise when he gave my 16-year-old son a red envelope containing money for the Chinese New Year.
He used to be of great concern to everyone in the family. Now it's a big relief to see the changes in him. He had turned healthy and happy.
Younger Brother Recovered from Depression
My young brother was the successful type. However, both his business and marriage were on the rocks. He told a psychiatrist that when he got up in the morning, the first thing was to open the window to see which one was better to jump out of to cause his death. He was worried that one day he could not control himself. Thus, my husband and I moved in to live with him.
Every day other than making delicious meals for him, I asked him to read one lecture in Zhuan Falun and other Falun Dafa teachings. I also asked him to keep reciting “Falun Dafa is good”. Just like my big brother, he knew that Dafa was good, but had some barriers. So, he decided to read the Fa aloud. He said to me, “My attitude towards Dafa is very serious!”
After two weeks, he said that he had recovered. He wanted to take a bath and get a haircut, and then he would be ready to go to work. It happened to be the day that he was supposed to return to the psychiatrist for another visit. The doctor checked him over and was amazed at the changes in him.
My younger brother said that he now has Dafa in his heart.
