Friends and Relative Praise Falun Gong after Witnessing its Benefits
(Minghui.org) My eldest daughter said, “Mom and Dad, you are now in good health. This is our family’s greatest blessing. We no longer worry about you. Your Falun Gong practice has benefited our family. Falun Gong is good, and you should continue practicing it.”
Benefiting after Three Months of Learning Falun Gong
I visited my eldest daughter in 1997, when I was 57 years old. One morning I went to a park at around 5:00 a.m. and saw hundreds of people doing exercises while listening to beautiful music. Their movements were gentle and graceful. I thought that this practice looked very good. I watched them for a while, then walked towards the back of the group and copied their movements.
A young man came over and said in a low voice, “Aunty, this is Falun Gong, an advanced level cultivation practice from the Buddha school, which has been made public by Mr. Li Hongzhi. We teach people Falun Gong voluntarily free of any cost and you can come or go freely.”
The young man was very polite, and patiently taught me the practice’s five sets of exercises. He then helped me buy a copy of the book, Zhuan Falun. When I returned to my daughter's home I was too busy to read the book, but I kept thinking about reading it.
On my return home I did some household chores and then told my husband, “I’m going to read a book. Please help me with some of the chores and try not to disturb me this evening.” I read the entire book between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., while sitting in the lotus position.
Upon opening the book, I saw Master Li ’s photo. He looked kind and majestic. I felt that I had seen him somewhere before.
I was ordered to have a sterilization procedure in 1973. Due to complications, I came down with a pelvic inflammatory illness and abdominal pain, which was accompanied by a low fever.
The first time I read Zhuan Falun, it felt as if a pair of warm hands was massaging my cervical spine. I did feel some pain on and off, but I was not worried. I felt warm and very comfortable while reading. The principles taught by Mr. Li Hongzhi held my attention and I did not feel tired at all.
After three months of reading Zhuan Falun and doing the exercises all of my physical problems had disappeared. I felt very light when climbing stairs, could carry heavy things, and always felt as if I was floating.
I have been trying to be a good person by following the Falun Gong principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
My daughters and son were planning to visit for the Mid-Autumn Festival in 2012, so my husband and I were making dumplings, but the cooker was not working.
I took the cooker to an electric repair shop. Upon entering the shop, I asked that the cooker be repaired as soon as possible. A younger man who was there got angry, said that he was ahead of me, and began to swear.
This incident made me realize that I should improve my character. I apologized and told him that I naturally would wait my turn. Thus, an unpleasant encounter was resolved peacefully.
I was crossing a road in 2013 when a bus hit me, and I was thrown quite a distance. I heard people crying out in alarm. But I slowly got up and looked at myself. I was fine, without any injury or scratches.
The young bus driver appeared to be scared to death, so I smiled and said, “I am a Falun Gong practitioner. I am all right. You can relax!” It took the driver some time to compose himself before he said, “Today I have come across a good person, indeed!”
Entire Family Benefits from Falun Gong
“Haven’t I said that with one person practicing, the whole family benefits? At a minimum, the energy field that you carry is beneficial to all of your family members since you are cultivating the righteous Fa, and the benevolent and tranquil power that you carry can rectify all incorrect states.” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
After seeing the changes in me, my husband started practicing Falun Gong in late 1997. Both my son and daughter-in-law started practicing around 1998, and my daughter-in-law's mother stepped into the practice in 1998.
My husband and I have been in good health for more than ten years and can look after ourselves, thanks to practicing Falun Gong. If any of our children need help, we are able to give them a hand.
Every Chinese New Year when we have a family reunion, my eldest daughter says, “Our parents are a fire brigade. When the family needs help, they will come and offer help! It is wonderful for our father and mother, at their age, to look after themselves and help us when we need it. That is rare!”
By comparing our past lives with our present lives, we are grateful to Falun Gong. Our neighbors and friends envy that my husband and I are in good health and spirits. They have witnessed our changes after we began practicing Falun Gong, and they all praise this cultivation practice.
