Reciting “Falun Dafa Is Good” Saves the Day
(Minghui.org) I have been practicing Falun Dafa for twenty years now. I had read many reports on the Minghui website about people reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and it saving the day, but never experienced this myself until the summer of 2014.
I joined a tour to Inner Mongolia that summer. The travel agency arranged a tour guide and a 20-passenger bus for us.
We headed down a long stretch of highway with the vast expanse of the prairie on both sides. I couldn't even see a single tree or sign of people for miles. Everyone was enjoying the scenery and taking pictures.
Suddenly we smelled something burning. We looked and saw smoke coming out the rear side of the bus. The driver pulled over and everyone got out.
It turned out that the brake pad was stuck on that wheel and the friction had caused the tire to begin to melt. The driver tried to get it unstuck, but couldn't.
He poured some cold water on the brake and hoped it would be okay for a while. But within a few minutes of driving, the tire started smoking again. The bus driver called for a mechanic, and the tour guide called for another bus, but it was high season for tourism. The repair shop could not send anyone and their were no more buses available. We were stuck!
Both the bus driver and the tour guide were drenched with sweat while still trying to fix the problem. The passengers were anxious, standing out in the hot sun in the middle of nowhere. I pulled the driver aside.
“You have tried everything you can think of, and it is still not working. I may have a solution. Are you willing to try?” I asked
“Tell me quickly, I will try anything,” he said.
I said, “If you recite 'Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!' sincerely, it might just work.”
He looked at me suspiciously. I explained to him briefly that Falun Dafa had been slandered by the communist regime, but that it was in fact a true cultivation path that teaches the universal principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I also told him that there were many reports on the Internet about miracles people experienced after reciting “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
“You have no other options. I believe Falun Dafa is your only hope now,” I said.
He decided to give it a try. We all got back into the bus. I sat next to the driver this time. I encouraged him to recite the words and I myself also recited them in my heart.
At first, the driver did not dare to accelerate. After a few minutes, he said he felt the brake loosen up a little. I encouraged him to keep reciting and also to try accelerating. He sped up gradually to 30~40 miles/hr and said it felt like the brake was no longer stuck. He became more confident.
I assured him, “It should be fine now. Keep reciting and accelerating. Just drive as normal!”
The bus sped up to 65 miles/hr. The bus driver smiled like a child, exclaiming, “It is okay, it is all okay now!” Everyone on the bus saw the bus was driving at normal speed without smoke coming from the tire. They all smiled with relief.
Tears filled my eyes.
The next day, the bus driver told me that when he took the bus in for repair the night before, the repairman said, “It's a miracle you could drive your bus here with this kind of damage.”
When the tour guide found out how the issue was resolved, he was amazed. I took the opportunity to further explain to them about Falun Dafa and the persecution. They both happily agreed to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations.
The bus driver told me that he would tell his friends what happened so that they could recite “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” if they encountered trouble.
