Centenarians Experience Miracles When Believing in Dafa (II)
(Minghui.org) Continued from Part I.
Our health has greatly benefited from the advent of modern technology, medicine and physical therapy, but at the same time, we are still powerless before many new and complex diseases. Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong), a mind and body practice that’s been taught in China since 1992, has saved the lives of numerous practitioners with incurable illnesses, helping millions improve their physical and mental wellness.
The following are stories of several centenarians who once suffered from chronic ailments and now live healthy lives thanks to their belief in these words: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Falun Dafa, which was introduced to the public in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi, teaches people to live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and think of others first in all actions.
Millions of Falun Dafa practitioners worldwide have benefited mentally and physically from practicing Dafa. They have improved their morals and gained healthy bodies. Even their family members have been blessed by supporting Dafa.
Healthy Grandma in Beijing
A grandma in Beijing is now 101 years old. She has a healthy complexion and looks like she’s in her 70s. She’s been practicing Falun Dafa for 20 years.
The grandma was born in a poor family and was malnourished since she was little. After she got married, she bore many children, which took a great toll on her health. She looked 20 years older than she actually was when she was only in her 50s.
She had vertigo since she was young. It would hit her any time, anywhere, without any warning. When it did, she became so dizzy that she would immediately pass out. It often put her in dangerous and life-threatening situations.
The medicine to treat her condition was expensive and she could barely afford it. In January of 1998, when she was 81, she began practicing Falun Dafa. She listened to the recordings of the lectures and followed Dafa's principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in her life. She also did the Falun Dafa exercises every day.
Shortly afterward, she was free of illness. Her legs and back straightened up and she no longer needed assistance going up and down the stairs. The vertigo that had plagued her for years was gone.
Elderly Woman Quickly Recovers from Severe Falls
When Yueying was 81, her daughter came home and introduced her to Falun Gong. Yueying was a spiritual person to begin with, so it didn't take much for her to begin practicing with her daughter. Though she hadn't received much education, she was quickly able to read Zhuan Falun on her own.
Yueying had uterine cancer when she was in her forties. After her recovery, her lower abdomen would become swollen and hurt every time she had a fever. After she started practicing Falun Gong, one day she felt a series of sharp pains in her lower abdomen, like needles stabbing her.
But the pain went away that night and her abdomen never hurt again.
She fell once while getting out of the bathtub and hit the wall hard. She could barely move after the accident. However, two days later she was able to get up out of bed and walk.
A few years ago, when she was in her nineties, she fell when she was trying to break up an argument between her daughter and daughter-in-law. As she fell, her head struck a coffee table and then the door.
Her face was swollen and she couldn’t see. She shared later that in her mind she asked Master Li Hongzhi, the found of Falun Dafa, to help her. She was rushed to the hospital and the medical exam showed that neither her brain nor her eyes were harmed. She recovered after a little while without any side effects.
When she was 98, she fell backward when trying to open a microwave oven. She fell down hard onto the floor and found herself paralyzed. There wasn’t anyone home at the time, so she just lay there believing that Master Li would save her. When her son and daughter-in-law came home, they immediately moved her to a bed. She remained immobile, in pain all over. Yet, the hospital exam still showed that there was nothing wrong with her. A month later, she could walk again.
She’s 103 now in 2018 and can take care of herself and help out with light housework. There are currently four generations in her family as she just welcomed a great-grandson in 2016.
Three Generations Benefit from Practicing Falun Dafa
An elderly man in Shandong Province is 107 this year and is still capable of taking care of himself – he even needs no help climbing stairs. In 2015, he sent his greetings to Master Li and said, “I am 104 and healthy. My grey hair has turned black and I’m clear-headed. People think that I am in my eighties. A big thank you to Master and Falun Dafa.”
He did not always enjoy good health. Twenty-three years ago he had trouble breathing and his heart was failing – his family had even arranged for his funeral. His son, who was 59 at the time, suddenly contracted a spinal disease and was virtually immobilized. All medical treatments failed him. His granddaughter, who was a Falun Dafa practitioner, tried to help her father and recommended the practice to him.
The daughter played the audio recording of the Falun Dafa lectures for her immobilized father. The 85-year-old man, who had been lying moribund up until that point, suddenly spoke:
“Who’s talking?! He’s so right and everything he says is absolutely true!”
“This is the right way! These are real teachings to offer mankind salvation!” he continued.
Then, to everyone’s surprise, he sat straight up in bed!
The old man listened to the teachings that afternoon with his son and granddaughter. He felt physically and mentally relaxed. That night, he vomited a lot of sticky solids. The next day, his major illnesses were gone.
The old man became very healthy after that and never needed a pill or shot. His son’s spinal problem quickly went away as well. Their relatives and friends who witnessed their medical miracles knew that Falun Dafa was good.
The old man started a Falun Dafa study group. One of his neighbors, who was in her fifties and had had breast cancer, became illness-free shortly after she took up the practice.
After the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999, the old man’s son gave up the practice when the police arrested him and tortured him for his faith.
The son had spinal tuberculosis when he was 74 and couldn’t walk. He was bedridden and needed to be carried from place to place.
The old man told his son, “Don’t think too much. Why don’t you start Falun Dafa again?”
His son agreed without hesitation. That afternoon he was able to walk again, after being paralyzed for nearly six months. Two weeks later, he was able to work on the farm. Now he is close to 80 and full of energy. He looks like a man in his forties and regularly works his 10 acres of farmland.
The 107-year-old man used to be a hot-tempered person and would often verbally or even physically abuse others when things didn’t go his way. Now he follows the principles of Falun Dafa and treats others with kindness. As a result, he received many visitors at home on New Year’s Day in 2017, happy to share the holiday with him. The old man knew that this wouldn’t have happened if he hadn't changed his behavior according to Falun Dafa's teachings.
