The Power of Dafa: Four Generations in One Family Benefit from Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am 88 years old and have been practicing Falun Dafa for 20 years. Just as it says in Zhuan Falun, the main book of Dafa, my body gradually turned youthful.
Witnessing my physical and mental improvements, my family has always supported me in my faith. They were there for me when I needed them, and they thus have benefited from Dafa.
There are four generations in our family, and many of them are doctors. But they do not talk about illness at family gatherings, since all 19 of us are healthy.
My Grandson and His Wife Support Dafa
After graduating from college, my grandson met Xiao Min, a sweet and sensible girl, and we all liked her. But his father—my eldest son—was against the marriage after he learned that Xiao Min suffered from hepatitis B and other serious illnesses. That prompted my grandson to move out of his parents’ home.
At a family gathering, I took Xiao aside and had a long talk with her about her “incurable” illnesses. I told her about Falun Dafa and how she could benefit from it. I then asked my grandson to have her read Zhuan Falun. I also gave them a Dafa truth clarification DVD.
Xiao told me sometime later that she had seen a Dafa DVD at a hairdresser’s in a disreputable area. After thinking about it on her way home, she decided to go back and ask for the DVD, and they gave it to her. I told her that she would benefit from protecting Dafa materials. Shortly after, she quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
“If someone dares to say 'Falun Dafa is good' during this period of time when the persecution is happening--just based on that one heartfelt statement, and without doing anything else--this person will definitely return to his original place! (Applause) Why is that? During this period of time and amidst an evil environment, he still dares to validate the Fa, so he will definitely become a divine being. Whoever does even just a small kind deed or minor good thing for Dafa disciples during this time of persecution will definitely become a divine being!” (“Fa Teaching at the 2007 New York Fa Conference” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference VIII)
Soon after, my eldest son announced that he agreed to the marriage of his son and Xiao. I believe that he changed his mind because she had protected the DVD and quit the CCP.
After they had been married for four years, Xiao realized that she had not been sick during all that time. Not only that, she gave birth to two smart and lovely boys.
My grandson had accepted Dafa informational materials since he was little and had shared it with his classmates. He also quit the Party some years ago.
Released from Detention Center in Three Days
I was reported to the police in June 2002 for handing out truth clarification materials. I was arrested and taken to a drug addiction center after the police ransacked my house.
My eldest son was scared at first but soon calmed down. He did not fret about his job or his future. He tried everything to rescue me, and I was released from the detention center in three days. He did not complain and tried to comfort me and so did my second son.
I told them, “In the future you will not be ashamed that I was in a detention center. On the contrary, you will be proud of it.” They believed me.
Dafa Practitioners Are Healthy
My daughter is the one who supports me the most. When I started to talk to people about quitting the CCP in 2005, she was the first one to quit. My sons were afraid to quit at that time, so my daughter agreed to encourage her brothers to quit. After talking to them again and again about Dafa and the importance of quitting the CCP, both men agreed.
She tells her friends that Dafa is good and that I am a practitioner. She makes sure that I send forth righteous thoughts on time and tells me to study the Fa, while she takes care of everything else.
My daughter, sons, and grandchildren point to my good health when they talk to people about Dafa. My second daughter-in-law tells her friends and family, "My mother-in-law practices Falun Dafa. She is very healthy, although she is almost 90 years old. She never gets sick and takes care of herself, which saves us a lot of time and trouble. Advise your elderly family members to practice Falun Dafa so they can be healthy.”
That makes it quite easy for me to tell people the facts about Dafa and encourage them to quit the CCP. All her family members have quit the Party.
Granddaughter Recognizes the CCP's Duplicity
My family told me that my granddaughter had applied to study philosophy at a prestigious university. To me, this was accepting the brainwashing of the CCP. She should not study it as her major, but I could not stop her. I told her that Mao's philosophy was not good, that it was used to brainwash people and to instill in them a competitive mentality.
Just a few days before the beginning of the semester, she told me that her dad and uncle had changed her major to English. What a relief!
She did well in her studies and passed the exam to study abroad. She returned to China after graduating and was assigned to work for a newspaper. I knew that this was not a good situation since Chinese newspapers are all controlled by the CCP. I became depressed and felt helpless.
However, not long after she took the newspaper job, she resigned. She told her parents that the relationships among the employees were too underhanded and immoral. Reporter jobs in the state-owned media are CCP jobs. The CCP tells reporters exactly what they can and cannot say.
She found a teaching job, and her income is very good.
Pass on to Future Generations the Benefits We Have Received from Dafa
My second son’s daughter came down with hyperthyroidism after her pregnancy and cesarean section. She recited, "Falun Dafa is good” over and over again, and she and her baby were fine. When the baby started to talk, the first words my daughter-in-law taught the baby were, “Falun Dafa is good.”
Three months ago, my eldest son called and asked me to burn some incense for him to show his gratitude to Master because his second grandson was just born. My son was very excited because he had dreamed that he would have two grandsons.
Now, "Falun Dafa is good" resides deep in the heart of everyone in my family. The four generations in our family all get along very well.
Master said, “…with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
My entire family is benefiting from my practicing Dafa. I told my children and grandchildren at the last New Year's Eve celebration, “Over the past two decades, Falun Dafa has given our whole family countless blessings and benefits. There are no words that can fully express our gratitude to Dafa. I hope each of you cherishes and respects the benefits, long lives, and all the other good things we have. You must always respect Master and Dafa. Always remember all the benefits we have enjoyed, and pass this on from generation to generation!
