Eighty-Year-Old Doctor Provides Free Treatment to Patients
(Minghui.org) I am a retired doctor and have been cultivating Falun Dafa for 20 years. Although I am in my 80s, I provide free treatment to patients every day, including holidays. As Falun Dafa helped me recover from severe lumbar spondylosis, I hope that my patients can benefit from Falun Dafa as well.
From Being Bedridden to Walking 12 Miles
Before I began to cultivate in Dafa, I suffered from all kinds of aliments. Because of lumbar spondylosis, I was bedridden for more than nine months and did not leave my apartment for four years.
A friend of mine brought me a copy of Zhuan Falun (the main book of Falun Dafa) in 1997. After reading the book three times, I improved, but I still could not do the Dafa exercises.
When my friend came to see me, I expressed my gratitude for his introducing me to Dafa. This friend told me that some Dafa practitioners were teaching the exercises about 12 miles from where I lived. Because I wanted to learn them, he took me to the practice site.
He walked ahead of me, holding onto his bike. I was able to walk over 12 miles that day. All my ailments disappeared that day.
At dusk, I stopped walking because the sky was illuminated by arrays of beautiful colors–red, brown, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I knew that this display was meant to encourage me and that I should step on the path of cultivation.
My friend thought that I had stopped because I could not walk any longer, but I eased his worries and had no problems walking.
I began to cultivate in Dafa and have been very healthy ever since.
A Good Samaritan
Cultivating in Dafa gives me good health and energy. When I was in my 70s, I was asked to work in a drug store as their doctor. I was living comfortably and did not have to work, but I knew that Teacher Li had arranged this opportunity for me to clarify the truth of Dafa to the people I would meet.
I read the Dafa teachings for three hours each day and practiced the exercises at five in the morning. After sending forth righteous thoughts, I walked for three miles to the drug store to treat patients for free. I never charge a penny because my goal is to help people learn the facts and benefits of Dafa.
Teacher Li teaches us,
“Even when in your daily life you pass by people so quickly that you don't have a chance to talk to them, you should still leave them with your compassion and kindness. Don't lose those who should be saved, especially those with predestined connections.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conference” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference IV)
Reciting Dafa Sentences: Four Year Old's Burn Wound Healed
Last year, a couple took me to see their four-year-old son, who had severe burns on his knee. They told me that they had been looking for me for two days. A former patient whom I had not seen for over a dozen years had told them about me.
The child's knee had been scalded by boiling water. The local hospital had been treating the child for over a month, but the wound was not healing. The child was in pain and kept crying. I noticed that the burned area was ulcerated so badly that the knee could not be straightened. Even if the wound reacted positively to my treatment, it would take at least another month to heal.
The child was wailing, so I immediately started to clean the wound. I told myself that Teacher had brought them to me, so I must do my best. While treating the wound, I told them the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution. The child continued to cry, so I asked his parents to recite, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” A few minutes later, the child fell asleep.
I set up a treatment plan. They needed to come every other day so I could clean the wound. The drug store would be closed two days before the Chinese New Year, however, so I asked them to bring their child to my apartment.
They gave me a red envelope as a thank-you gift for the New Year, but I returned it to them. When they tried to convince me to accept their gift the next day, I explained to them that I had not accepted any money or gifts from my patients since I became a Dafa cultivator.
Teacher Li said,
“Fame, gain, emotion—cultivate each away,And ascend to the Firmament at Consummation,See the human world with eyes of compassion,Then are you freed from the spell of delusion.”(“Success at Consummation,” from Hong Yin)
I encouraged them to continue reciting the two sentences, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations, which they did.
The child's wound completely healed after 20 days. The father told me on the phone, “Our son has begun kindergarten. His wound is all healed, and his leg is normal too. He can walk like a normal kid. Thank you, Master of Dafa!”
