(Minghui.org) As the 61-year-old husband of a Falun Dafa practitioner, I was skeptical about the benefits of the practice. That was until I experienced the power of Dafa by reciting, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” after having a stroke from a cerebral infarction.

I had witnessed the power of Dafa when my wife took up the practice over ten years ago, but despite her positive changes, I was still not convinced of its benefits.

When I was taking my granddaughter back to her home one time, I suddenly felt numb on one side of my body and fell to the ground. I was then taken to hospital.

My wife suggested that I recite with a sincere heart, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She told me that I would be fine, but only if I repeated these words.

It sounded inconceivable that one would recover from a stroke by chanting a few special words and seriously doubted that it would work.

She seemed to know what I was thinking and patiently told me, “If you recite 'Falun Dafa is good' with all your heart when you are in danger, our Master will protect you. I know it's hard to believe, but our Master said that if one person cultivates in Falun Dafa, the whole family benefits.”

I haven't had a cold since my wife started practicing Falun Dafa, and I've been in good health for over a decade. So, I decided to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

I was able to go home the next day and fully recovered shortly afterwards. I now firmly believe that the special words allowed the power of Dafa to manifest.

Another Skeptic Listens

Another cerebral infarction patient had been hospitalized for several days and shared the same ward with me. He was surprised to see how quickly I had recovered, while he was still unable to walk.

He started to blame the doctor for the unfair treatment he had received. He assumed that the doctor must have prescribed the best medicine to treat my condition rather than his.

My wife told him that she had asked me to recite sincerely, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

“As long as you recite these words,” she said, “you will witness the extraordinary power of Falun Dafa.”

The man didn't want to believe it, but his son, who had been taking care of him for days, convinced him to give it a try. The man nodded in silence.
