(Minghui.org) I had polio when I was a child, and it caused my muscles to atrophy. My bones hurt and I became hunchbacked. I suffered from pharyngitis, constipation, hemorrhoids, and dizziness. Winters were the worst: I always felt cold, my arms and legs would swell, and my skin developed sores which oozed pus.

I was thin and pale. My face was covered with dark spots, and my hair was brittle. Every day, I took more medications and injections than food.

The right side of my body became paralyzed in 1981, and it was hard for me to move. I finally felt that it was too painful to live. Attempting to kill myself, I took poison three times, but I failed each time. I decided that I was not supposed to die.

In order to cure my illness, I became a devout Buddhist. Instead, my health kept deteriorating. I spent a lot of money to learn several different qigong practices, but none of them helped.

I was struggling in the dark as I searched for an answer. I was not sure if I would ever see light at the end of my dark tunnel.

Falun Dafa Gave Me a New Life

My husband also suffered from various illnesses, but the symptoms disappeared after he learned Falun Dafa. He often encouraged me to give it a try, but I felt it was not for me.

One time I was lying in bed watching him do the exercises. I saw two law bodies of Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa. That was an awesome experience!

I opened the book Zhuan Falun one day when no one was home. I saw Master Li's photo smiling at me. He gazed at me as if he had found a long-lost child. I felt that he wanted to speak to me, and I cried.

Afterward I decided to practice Falun Dafa. I threw away all the spirit tablets for worshiping ancestors I had kept, and I gave away or burned all the qigong books that I had.

I studied the Dafa books and my mind was filled with the Falun Dafa principles. My illnesses soon disappeared. My face looked healthy and radiant and all the dark spots disappeared. After being hunchbacked for years, my spine straightened, and my atrophied muscles became normal.

I felt like a new person. I was happy and full of energy. The people who knew me were shocked, and they thought that Falun Dafa was amazing! Many of them, including my relatives, began to learn the practice.

Overcoming Tribulations

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution of Falun Dafa two years after I became a practitioner. My family members and I were persecuted as well.

I was illegally arrested several times. I went on hunger strikes many times, and the longest time was fifteen days without food or water. I kept doing the exercises, reciting the teachings and talking to others about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I even did the sitting meditation while I was handcuffed and fettered.

I had a dream one night that Master came to my home and sat next to me. He asked me to recite Hong Yin, and I did. Master was very happy and told me to memorize Hong Yin Vol. II.

As I was going to the door with Master, a ferocious beast appeared. It growled and stared at us menacingly. Master kept walking, and the beast turned into water.

From this dream I realized Master is always with me, protecting me. I became more steadfast and diligent in my practice.

One time after I was arrested, the police said that I would be sentenced to 18 years in prison. I replied, “Your words mean nothing. Master Li has the final say.” I was released a few hours later.

The police ransacked my house several times, but they could never find the book, Zhuan Falun. One time they saw me reading it. I gave it to my husband and he hid it in a box. The police walked over, pointed at the box, and said, “The book is here.” However, when they opened the box they could not find it.

Due to the CCP's slander and the constant harassment by the police, people around me thought I was a bad person. Our family became isolated and alienated. Some people even took advantage of us and occupied our land.

I followed the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, looked inward for my shortcomings, putting others first, and practiced forbearance. People gradually saw that I was a good person, an innocent person who was wrongly persecuted. The transformation of my body and mind was a testimony to the wonders of Dafa.

Talking to People about the Goodness of Falun Dafa

I work with another practitioner at a private hospital. The doctors prescribe medicines made from secret recipes passed down from our ancestors. Because the medicines are affordable and very effective, patients travel from other cities and provinces to seek treatment at our hospital.

I talk to people about Falun Dafa and the persecution whenever I can. We hang Falun Dafa banners outside of the consulting room, and Master's photo is inside the office. Many patients say that they feel relaxed and comfortable when they come to our hospital for treatment.

I often tell them, “Although you came to seek treatment, the real reason may be to hear about Falun Dafa.” Most of our patients have withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. About two to twenty people, patients and their family members, quit the Party each day.

One patient had uterine cancer, and I had given her Falun Dafa informational material many times. When the doctor said she had less than three months to live, I suggested she repeat the words, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

One day she admitted that she threw away all the informational material I gave her because she watched the CCP's propaganda on television. I told her that practitioners spent their own money and volunteered their time to make those materials. I gave her more copies, and the cancer was gone a few days after she read the material.

That happened more than ten years ago. The woman is now in her 70s and is healthy. She often tells others to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
