(Minghui.org) When I was riding on a bus not long ago, a passenger asked me about my age, and I told him that I was 81 years old. Another person overhead this and announced my age to everyone, and people stared at me. They wondered why I looked so much younger than my age, so I asked if they wanted to hear the truth. They could not wait to hear what I had to tell them.

I told them about the benefits of Falun Dafa and told them to repeat “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” whenever they face a problem.

They accepted all the Falun Dafa informational materials I had with me, as well as software that can bypass the Chinese Internet censorship and allow them to surf foreign websites.

Falun Dafa Came Into my Life at a Low Point

Before I began practicing Dafa in 1995, I suffered from renal hypertension and was put on hormone therapy, which caused me to gain a lot of weight. After my husband passed away, I came down with a heart disease and high blood pressure. I was often hospitalized. Since my health insurance had expired, treatments were very expensive for me. The doctors did not give me any hope.

Before checking out of the hospital, I met a man who asked me how I was doing, so I told him my sad story.

He suggested, “There is something that could help you out of your misery. You should sincerely recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’.”

Not having heard about this before, I could not quite believe this man's words. But, he told me that as long as I recited these sentences with a sincere heart, they would have a powerful effect.

By reciting these sentences, I was able to fall sleep without taking sleeping pills. So, I called this man and told him what I had experienced. He then sent me a copy of Zhuan Falun}}. Reading this book opened my eyes to the preciousness of Falun Dafa, and I decided to start practicing.

Not Afraid of Police

Jiang Zemin, former head of the communist regime, launched the persecution of Dafa in 1999. I burned incense and said to Master, “They do not allow me to practice Dafa, but I will practice and believe in Master and Dafa.”

When I saw a police car parked outside my house, I turned on the tape player and began to do the Dafa exercises. My family was a little scared and asked me to turn down the volume.

“I will not turn down the volume,” I said. “Anyway, they all know that I practice Dafa. I am not afraid. I would have died were it not for Dafa. So, I not afraid of anything. However, my family shut the windows.

Clarifying the Truth

Local practitioners, including me, began {{clarifying the truth about Dafa after 2000 and told people that Master is innocent and that Dafa is being persecuted. I distributed Dafa informational materials from door to door.

Sometimes I experienced the power of Dafa when distributing the materials. I lived close to a gated air force residential compound. The guard opened the gate without asking who I was, and I was able to get in and out of residential buildings without having the proper key.

I went to my hometown and cities in Xinjiang, Heilongjiang, Hebei, Shanxi, as well as other provinces to clarify the truth to my relatives and friends and to distribute informational materials. I also wrote on walls and in other areas, “Falun Dafa is good. Heaven will eliminate the Communist Party.” The majority of my relatives quit the Party.

When I tried to tell a man at a bus stop about the persecution, he did not want to listen. But, after I told him my real age, and he verified it by looking at my senior ID card, he changed his attitude and wanted me to tell him the truth about Dafa. On the bus, he announced loudly that I was 80 years old, yet I looked much younger because I practice Dafa.

I said, “I have benefited a lot from Dafa. When I was in my 50s, my husband died. My hair turned gray. But, after I began practicing Dafa, my gray hair turned black again. In the past, dark age spots covered my entire body, but those disappeared.”

There was a woman on the bus who was on her way to a hospital for cancer treatment. She grabbed my arm and said, “I have been looking for practitioners for a long time. I have heard that Dafa is powerful and can restore good health. It is so great that I met you today!”

As I had no truth-clarification materials left, I gave her a charm with the words, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told her to repeat these two sentences and that she would be blessed by it. She thanked me again and again. All the passengers began to repeat the two sentences.

Benefiting from Practicing Dafa

A practitioner encouraged me to copy the book Zhuan Falun by hand. I told her that I could not write. She said that I had come through many tribulations, so this should be easy. She bought me pens and a notebook. I began to write. It took me a year and a half to copy the book for the first time, and I have copied it several times since then.

When I buy groceries, I no longer search for the best vegetables. Seeing my behavior, a few of the grocers in the market and their customers started to practice Dafa.

My son used to be an ordinary policeman. Later, he was promoted to a director. He is kind and helps those in need. Whenever he sees discarded truth-clarification materials, he picks them up and gives them to me.

He and his daughter went for a ride on his motorcycle in 2003. They hit a large truck, and my son and his daughter were thrown for about 10 meters. Neither of them was hurt.

The truck driver was scared and took them to a hospital. My son had only a few minor skin scratches, and his daughter was fine. It was just as Master had said: “…with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
