A Driver Declares His Gratitude in Front of Over 100 People, “Falun Dafa is Good!”
(Minghui.org) I am almost 80 years old and started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. Master Li Hongzhi cleansed my body soon after. Blood flowed from my nose for five days, but I was still feeling good. In addition, all kinds of diseases completely disappeared afterwards. My family and I felt it was miraculous!
My eldest daughter had rented a piece of land near a river to plant mushrooms. One day a torrential flood occurred, and it seemed that her land would be annihilated. She cried for help, “Master Li! Save me!” Instantly the flood dispersed, and her plot of land was spared.
I was hit by a car on the way home from a market on March 14, 2013. I landed on the ground over four meters away. But I didn’t feel any pain, and there were no bruises present on my face or body. The driver wanted to rush me to a hospital, but I told him that it was not necessary. He then asked me how much he could pay me. I replied that I would not ask him for a cent!
Over 100 bystanders saw the accident, and many seemed shocked by my decision. Someone said that I was stupid not to take any money. Someone else said that I must be a really a decent person for not being so interested in money in today's society.
I got up from the ground and brushed the dirt off my clothes. I said to the crowd, “Do you know why I refused to go to a hospital, and why I didn’t ask for a cent? The reason is that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Nothing happened to me, as I was protected by my Master.
“Master Li teaches us to act according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and wants us to consider others first. Think about it. As an over-70-year-old man, I was hit and knocked down by a car. However, I got up easily by myself. If I was not a Falun Dafa practitioner, I might not have been able to get up by myself, even if I just happened to fall. For people my age, money is not necessarily more important than a healthy body.”
Some people were still worried about my condition, saying, “Sir, for an elderly man like you, nothing happened now. That is great, but it does not guarantee that something won't be hurt later. Then your sons and daughters might blame you for making the wrong decision today.”
I replied, “First, I thank you for your concern!” I then turned to the driver and added, “Trust me! I will not write down your name or your license plate number! I believe firmly that nothing will happen now or in the future! Young man, I just have one request for you. You must express your gratitude towards Master Li for removing this ill fortune for you.”
He asked me how he should do this. I told him that it would not cost him a cent; he could just press his hands together in front of his chest (in heishi) and shout loudly, “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” He gladly agreed to my suggestion.
At first I raised my hands and shouted excitedly, “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
The young man followed along, and he yelled out in a louder voice, “Falun Dafa is good!” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
I bowed to the public and said, “Everybody, please remember that Falun Dafa is good. Then you and your families will have a bright future.”
I left the scene to a hearty round of applause. I was excited too, and kept waving both my hands to express my gratitude.
