“At 100 Years Old Falun Dafa Helps Me to Live a Healthy and Long Life”
(Minghui.org) I am 100 years old. I am also illiterate, so a fellow practitioner helped me write this sharing. I want to let other practitioners know how I have benefited from practicing Falun Dafa, and how Master has protected me since I learned Dafa 19 years ago.
I started to practice Dafa in August 1998. I had many illnesses, such as long-term migraines, back pain, stomach pain, and I suffered greatly from tympanites (swelling of the abdomen) for 40 years. I visited many doctors and took countless medications, but nothing worked.
Less than four months after I started practicing Dafa, all of my illnesses disappeared. I became very healthy. I often got so excited and cried in joy, “Thank you Master, thank you Master!”
I listened to Master’s audio tapes, and my daughter read Zhuan Falun to me at night. I loved listening to Master’s teachings. Every word went into my heart; every sound went into my ears. After about six months, I was able to climb the Great Wall.
I got up at 3:50 every morning to do the exercises and send forth righteous thoughts with my daughter. I never stopped. Others were envious of my healthy body!
I asked a fellow practitioner to write a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin (the former Chinese leader who initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa) for me, in July 2015. Later my son found out and scolded me. He asked me why I sued Jiang?
I replied: “My Master gave me a healthy body, shouldn't I speak the truth? Jiang persecuted Falun Dafa, He did not allow people to be good. He was corrupt to the core and betrayed our country. He went as far as harvesting organs from living Dafa practitioners. Shouldn’t I sue him? I have to speak the truth and clear Master's name.”
I became very angry and did not follow Master’s teaching of forbearance. Two days later, I suffered from a severe headache. I could not eat nor sleep. I could only lie face down and drink a little bit of water or milk. Even with all that suffering, my brain was very clear. I knew the old forces were persecuting me!
When the pain was unbearable, I would cry out: “Master please save me! I want to go home with you. Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good.”
A few practitioners came to help me send forth righteous thoughts. I did not want them to come again, because I knew they were very busy doing the three things that Master wanted them to do. This torture lasted for 35 days, then I slowly got better.
However, my nose started to bleed 10 days later, and I couldn't stop the bleeding. I knew that the evil was persecuting me again. Master did not recognize the persecution from the old forces, and I would not recognize it either!
I screamed “Master, please save your disciple! I want to go home with you.”
In no time the bleeding stopped. Please think about it, if it weren't for Master’s compassion, an older person like me, could not have survived to this day!
When I suffered the sickness karma, my son, daughter, daughter-in-law, nephew, niece, and grandson all came to visit me. They had a car waiting at my front door and tried to take me to the hospital. I would not go.
I said to my grandson: “Ask your mother whether I should go to the hospital.”
My daughter said: “If you are a practitioner then you don't go, if you are not a practitioner you should go.”
I said that I would not go to the hospital. They all got very angry and left. They were very unhappy with my daughter. Soon afterward I got better, and they were not angry anymore. They all felt the compassion of Master, and the supernatural power of Dafa.
Right up until 10 years ago, I still delivered truth clarification materials with other practitioners to help save people. Now I stay home and send forth righteous to support other practitioners. During my tribulations, I did too little while teacher gave me too much! I thank practitioners for helping me out. They are selfless. It is like what Master has said:
“The next person’s things are your things, and your things are his things.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. Fa Conference” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference II)
Recently a 70-year-old practitioner came from very far away to study the Fa with me. I now host a Fa-study group, and I am so happy. I know Master sent her to me. Master did not give up on this old lady. I thank Master for compassionately saving me. I feel so light and healthy!
