Blessed to Have Obtained Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I was diagnosed with lumbar disc protrusion in 2003. I took painkillers and continued to work in the fields, but the pain finally became so excruciating that I could not get out of bed and I needed help just to get around.
We sought treatment for my chronic pain, but modern medicine was unable to cure me or give me much relief. It was Falun Dafa that cured me and gave me back my life.
Worries and Ailments
Before I became a Falun Dafa practitioner, my husband and I worried about our family finances. Our two children were still in school, and we had tuition to pay. My husband had to travel to a distant city for a better paying job.
Because of anxiety over our family’s situation, I developed more health problems. I had precancerous growths in my breasts, a frozen shoulder, edema in my legs, chronic breathlessness, and dizziness. My poor health gave me much to contemplate, and I began to give serious thought to the meaning of life, whether we existed after death, and the existence of Gods.
A Precious Book
My husband came home with a book and recommended I read it. It was a book about Falun Dafa. “I don’t want to read it,” I said. “I watched that horrific self-immolation broadcast on television.”
My husband was patient, and he explained how he had met a woman who practiced Falun Dafa. He said, “She described how her illness had disappeared after she began practicing and explained that the self-immolation incident was a hoax staged by former Party leader Jiang Zemin out of jealousy over the number of Falun Dafa practitioners in China. It was staged to convince the general population to hate Falun Dafa.”
I still did not want to read the book, so my husband said, “I’ll read it first and let you know what I think.”
My husband finished reading the book a few days later and told me, “I think Falun Dafa is good and totally different from what we have seen in the media.”
I agreed to take a look. I was amazed and energized when I read “Genuinely Guiding People Toward High Levels” in Zhuan Falun. This book held the answers to life that I was desperately seeking. I was determined to be a cultivator of Master Li (founder of Falun Dafa).
I immersed myself in the book and was so captivated that I did not notice night had fallen. The book exceeded my expectations. I continued reading past midnight and then slept until dawn.
The following morning, I quickly sat up the moment I heard my husband say that breakfast was ready. Amazed, my husband asked, “How were you able to sit up so fast? Does your back still hurt?” To my surprise and joy, my back did not hurt. I knew Master Li had accepted me as a practitioner.
Becoming a True Practitioner
I found the practitioner who had introduced Falun Dafa to my husband. I told her that I finished reading the book and asked her to teach me the five exercises. She cried at my request and said, “Despite the government’s harsh persecution, you still wish to practice Dafa. I must thank Master for saving your life.”
I began reading Master’s many lectures in order to understand the principles of being a better person. I embarked on a journey to return to my original nature, counting myself fortunate to have obtained Dafa.
Members of My Family Take up the Practice
Gradually, members of my family also started cultivating in Dafa. My father suffered from necrosis of the hip joint and took large quantities of Chinese and Western medicine to relieve the pain. He was completely cured within six months of practicing Falun Dafa and was able to return to work at a brick kiln.
My mother's chronic cold and rhinitis were also cured. My sister's brain hemorrhage symptoms vanished the moment she recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
My husband and children also acknowledge the goodness of Dafa and often recite “Falun Dafa is good.” They have obtained good health and blessings. I myself have not been ill even once in the past ten years since I began practicing. Such is the wonder of Falun Dafa.
