Believing in Dafa, Clarifying the Truth, and Saving People
(Minghui.org) I met an elderly lady in a wheelchair one day in April 2017. I said to her, “Please remember 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' ...can you hear me?” She nodded. I then explained to several people that, to ensure a safe future, they should withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and renounce its youth organizations.
One person pointed to the lady in the wheelchair and said, “She used to be the chairwoman of the local CCP. We all are members of the CCP Youth League.” When she heard that, the elderly woman stood up and walked over to me, smiling. I advised her to quit the Youth League, and she replied, “I quit, I quit,” and gave me her name.
The others were surprised and stared at her in amazement. One of them said, “It is a miracle. She has not smiled or talked for over a decade. Now she is smiling and talking. She even stood up and walked without help! Truly amazing!”
About five or six people then started a lively conversation. Some quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers and asked for Dafa informational materials. Someone said, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” It was so moving!
My Illnesses Disappeared
I am illiterate and live in a rural area. My mother was well-known in the region. I had a dream once where I went to a mountain covered with flowers. I met my mother, who flew to me and said, “Keep cultivating hard and return to heaven.” She then flew away. But my mother's words took root in my heart and often came back to me.
I used to suffer from several ailments and severe pain. Medical treatments were not effective. I asked myself where this path was to return to heaven? When my suffering became unbearable, someone from our village advised us to try Falun Dafa.
The first time I saw Master Li Hongzhi’s picture, I burst into tears. I knew that he would save me. I started to study the Fa and eagerly do the exercises. There was a shortage of Dafa books at the time. Our village had only one copy of Zhuan Falun and one copy of the exercise video. Practitioners in our village studied and did the exercises every morning and evening.
I experienced miraculous results a few months later. I no longer felt dizzy, my stomach no longer hurt, and my lumbar fractures disappeared. I felt warm, and my limbs had become flexible. I felt as though I was flying while walking, and while riding a bicycle, it seemed as if someone was pulling me forward. Everything I did was easy, and I felt full of energy. I cannot find the words to adequately thank Master.
I couldn't read the Dafa books since I had never gone to school. In August 1998, I obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun and three other books, as well as the audio recordings of Teacher's lectures in Guangzhou. I held the books in front of my chest and knelt in front of Master's picture and asked Master to help me. During the daytime, I asked others to help me learn to read and in the evening I listened to the lectures. I learned the Fa one word at a time. Several months later, I was able to read Zhuan Falun. One year later, I could read the other three Dafa books and recite Master's Hong Yin.
Following Master's Words, Clarifying the Facts, and Saving People
The persecution of Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) started in July 1999. Being faced with slander and the cruel persecution, we followed Master's requirements and clarified the facts to help people learn the truth.
In a crop field, I told an elderly lady the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution. Her son raised a hoe above his head and shouted aggressively, “How dare you promote Falun Gong! I'll kill you with this hoe1”
“If I owe you a life, you can kill me,” I replied. “If I don't, you won't be able to harm me. I am still going to tell you the facts in order to save you.”
His mother grabbed him and cried, “Stop. She is telling me to be a good person by practicing Falun Gong.”
I said, “That's right. Falun Gong teaches people to practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Isn't that good?” Her son did not reply. I gave the lady informational materials and told her that, once her son read it, he would understand and know the truth.
On another occasion, I rode my bicycle to a town 30 kilometers away to distribute materials. It was dark on my way back, and I fell off my bicycle. I injured my ankle, and the pain was excruciating when I tried to stand. My wrist hurt as well. I told myself that I was a practitioner, that Master looks after me, and that I would be alright. My family took me to a hospital when I returned home. My wrist was fractured and was put in a cast. At home, I removed the cast. I told others that I was a practitioner and Master was taking care of me. I continued to study the Fa, do the exercises, and clarify the facts every day. Before long, my wrist healed.
I was detained in November 2008 and sent to a brainwashing center for 26 days. I was interrogated every day, and officers tried to force me to give up Falun Gong. I refused to cooperate.
During the brainwashing sessions, they played video programs that slandered Dafa and Master. I told them that we practiced Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, that Falun Gong is the highest Buddha Fa, and that what they were doing was a crime. I asked them to turn off the TV. I sent forth righteous thoughts to disable the TV, and it soon stopped working.
I explained the facts to the police officers. I was detained in a cold dark room, but I still recited the Fa, did the exercises, and sent forth righteous thoughts. The guards there wore thick coats but still felt chilly. I was wearing only thin clothing but I didn't feel cold and had lots of energy. One of them asked me, “Don't you feel cold?”
I said, “We practitioners cultivate xinxing, are good people, and are protected by our master. I don't feel cold.” After they realized that they couldn't change my thinking, they started to fear that I might become an inspiration to others, so they released me.
After returning home, I managed to escape being monitored by the authorities. I went to surrounding towns and talked to people about Falun Dafa. One trip lasted five days. With Master's help, I explained the facts to 70 people, and 50 to 60 withdrew from the Party and its youth organizations.
I once met a woman in her 70s who was confined to a wheelchair due to paralysis. She told me, “One of my legs is shorter than the other. If I stretch it, a burning pain shoots through my leg, and I don't dare to stand on it. I cannot move the fingers of my left hand, as they are stuck together.” I said, “The two of us have a predestined relationship. I have good news for you. Recite wholeheartedly 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' These words are about the highest Buddha Fa and can save sentient beings.”
She put her palms together in front of her chest and twice recited, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She stopped for a while and then said, “My whole body is tingling. I feel very good.”
She stretched her leg and didn't have any pain. She stood up without feeling that one leg was shorter than the other. She looked at her left hand, and all of her fingers were separated. She said, “It’s really amazing! You are really great.”
I replied, “It's not me who is great. It is Dafa. Because your heart is sincere, our master is taking care of you!”
