My Family Benefits from Being Supportive of Falun Dafa

February 15, 2017 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Hebei Province, China

(Minghui.org) After I brought home Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, in 1998, I read more than a hundred pages. Before I finished reading it, my illness symptoms that had plagued me for many years, such as insomnia, headaches, and back and leg pain all disappeared.

Before I started to practice Falun Dafa, I was too weak to cook or clean the house. After I started to cultivate, I could take over all the household chores. At work, I improved the work-flow. Co-workers agreed that my group would take only one day to complete an assignment, while other groups would take up to three days.

I always keep the teachings of Master's Li Hongzhi, the founder of Dafa, in mind,

“You should always maintain a heart of compassion and kindness. Then, when you run into a problem, you will be able to do well because it gives you room to buffer the confrontation.” (Zhuan Falun)

Not Afraid to Defend Falun Dafa

After I started to practice Falun Dafa, I introduced Zhuan Falun to my 80-year-old mother-in-law. She read the book and understood that Dafa taught people to be good.

At the beginning of the persecution, she would often tell people, “Jiang Zemin (the former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader) does not allow people to be good!”

I gave her a VCD player and asked her to watch Master's Fa teaching lectures in Guangzhou. After watching the video, she stopped watching other television programs and kept watching the lecture series. She also quit smoking.

During the SARS epidemic in 2003, the village was blocked, and no outsiders were allowed in. We went to visit my sister-in-law, and I brought them some Falun Dafa fliers. Since we could not walk through the village, my mother-in-law said that she would distribute the fliers.

Someone committed arson in the village. It was rumored that practitioners did it. My mother-in-law told them that this was impossible because practitioners only did good deeds.

Some people who practiced different religions also badmouthed Dafa, and my mother-in-law told them to stop. She told the villagers that the Tiananmen Self-immolation was a hoax created to incite people to turn against Dafa.

She read the publications of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and the Disintegration of the Party Culture. She remarked that everything that was detailed in the books were true. She then withdrew from the CCP.

My Husband's Full Support

My husband did not object when practitioners did the exercises in our home. He also read Zhuan Falun and understood that the book teaches people to be good.

“The propaganda against Dafa does not matter,” he said. “My wife is now free of all the illnesses she suffered before she practiced Dafa. This cultivation practice is greatly beneficial, even if you only look at the savings in medical expenses.“

My husband is very helpful and often took care of the house when I was involved in Falun Dafa projects. He often tells me, “You are busy! What you are doing is more important.”

The CCP officials put pressure on the workplaces and families of practitioners. My supervisor told my husband to stop me from passing out Dafa materials and assigned someone to monitor me. When I went out to distribute fliers, they unsuccessfully tried to chase me down because my husband lead them around in circles.

My husband quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations when the Nine Commentaries was first published. He also refused to participate in any meetings related to the persecution.

Nothing Wrong with Practicing Falun Dafa

After my son read Zhuan Falun twice, he recovered from his chronic bacterial infection. After the persecution started, he read Dafa informational materials and suggested that I send them to the office whose teachers teach politics.

A government official asked my son what he thought about his mother being a practitioner, and he replied, “Falun Dafa gave my mother a healthy body, I see nothing wrong with it.”

He has been very supportive by helping me make fliers, as well as buying a printer and associated materials. He also had me clarify the truth about Dafa to his girlfriend. He then decided to quit the CCP's affiliated organizations.

My entire family has received blessings for being supportive of Dafa.
