Protected at the Moment Danger Comes
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners all have stories to tell. The practice has brought all manner of benefits to those who practice it around the world. What follows are three such stories, each telling of how a practitioner overcame a particularly dangerous situation, thanks to their strong belief and conviction.
A Tractor With a Full Load Ran Over My Right Leg
By a practitioner in China
A few days ago, a relative’s family had a funeral. I went to help transport sand for the burial grave. I sat on the tractor loaded with sand.
The road condition was not good and the ride was bumpy. I suddenly slipped and fell off the tractor, landing right in front of a rear wheel. The tractor was fully loaded with sand, and the rear wheel ran over my right ankle, my lower right leg and the middle of my thigh.
I had no fear at that moment. After the tractor ran over me, I stood up right away and shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
The driver was frightened. He stepped on the brake and stopped the tractor. Then he immediately jumped off the tractor and asked, “Where are you hurt? Let’s go to the hospital.” I told him, “I am okay. I am a Dafa practitioner.”
There was a large tear in my new jeans between the legs the size of two hands, and the tractor's wheel left an imprint of the tire track on my leg. However, my leg did not swell nor did I feel any pain. The skin was not even broken. It was a miracle.
The driver was amazed. He said, “No injury at all!? Falun Gong is miraculous. I would not have believed it if I did not see it. If the accident happened to anyone else, he would definitely have suffered a bone fracture, if not a comminuted leg fracture.”
At that moment, a flow of warmth ran through my heart. I thanked Master for saving my leg. I also knew I should not be zealous or show off. I should simply tell people about Falun Gong so that they know the truth.
After returning to my village, the villagers all came to see me. I told them about my experience and explained to them about Falun Gong. Some villagers asked me for the phrases I shouted. I told them, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
Hit by a Car
By a practitioner in China
On a cold, rainy afternoon, I was riding my electric bike. A car going in the same direction suddenly hit me. At that moment, my body was jerked backward, and the back of my head hit something. I fell heavily to the ground. My left lower leg was then run over.
The first thought that came to mind when I regained consciousness was, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
After I gradually regained a clear mind, I noticed that my bike was shattered. Pieces of it scattered all around, with some landing more than 20 yards away. The driver, with one of my boots in hand, stood there absent-minded and trembling.
I thought, “I am a Dafa practitioner, and I am okay.” I slowly got up from the muddy wet ground, limped to the roadside, and sat on the curb.
I saw that my bike was beyond repair. I told the driver, “Please put my boots on for me. You don’t need to worry. Falun Gong practitioners do not swindle people. Please take me home, and don’t worry about the bike.”
He insisted on taking me to a hospital. I politely declined and told him, “You did not hit me on purpose.” He said, “I wanted to catch the green light. It was my fault.” He insisted on taking me to a hospital. I told him, “Let’s get in your car first!”
Sitting in his car, I felt some pain at the back of my head. I then noticed that the windshield of the car was smashed, hanging in place by its safety lamination. I told him, “You see, my Master protected me. I am okay.” He kept saying, “I ran into a good person today! I ran into a good person today!”
I said to him, “I am over 60 years old. If I were an ordinary person, what would be the result of this accident? You can see that I have no injuries and that I don’t want any compensation from you. Dafa practitioners are all good people. The ‘Tiananmen Square self-immolation’ is a deception by the Chinese Communist Party. Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, and you will have a safe future.”
He kept nodding his head. He then quit the Young Pioneers, accepted an amulet, and thanked me again and again!
My Car Lost Control Going Downhill
By a practitioner in China
I drove to the countryside on the seventh day of the 12th lunar month. Driving was difficult on the winding mountain trails that were covered with snow and ice.
At dusk, my car suddenly lost control going downhill. In a panic, I stomped on the brake. It did not help and my car started sliding sideways. At that moment of life and death, I shouted, “Master Li Hongzhi, please help me!”
A miracle occurred. My car slowly stopped on the side of a trench, with one wheel suspended in the air. I turned off the ignition and got out of the car. I was surprised to see that my car was on the verge of rolling down the trench.
I looked around, but did not see any people or cars. It was getting dark, and I was scared. “What should I do?” I kept begging Master for help in my mind.
After a while, I saw two vehicles at a distance driving in my direction. When they came closer, I signaled them for help. They pulled my car out with a rope in their four-wheel-drive SUV.
These people were very kind, and they did not accept any payment. Afterwards I kept thinking about what happened. The more I thought about it, the more I was scared. Without Master’s protection, I would have been finished. I sincerely thanked Master for the protection.
For practitioners, at the moment a test comes, if they can keep their minds unmoved and if all their thoughts are based on Dafa, then no difficulties can stop them.
In contrast, having ordinary thought when experiencing danger or persecution makes the tribulation worse. And the process of awakening from the worsened tribulation is very painful.
“We have said that good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (“Lecture Four”, Zhuan Falun)
