[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] A Newer Practitioner's Unusual Experience That Led Her to Start Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am 70 years old, and began practicing Falun Dafa just over a year ago. My husband has been practicing Dafa for over 20 years. Before he became a practitioner, he was a ruffian who often got into fights. No one dared to offend him for fear of being beaten up.
He changed completely after he began practicing Falun Dafa. He was respectful towards his parents and kind to family members. He also got along peacefully with others and stopped swearing.
My husband used to take his anger out on me. He has now become a calm and kind person. I truly witnessed the beauty of Dafa. Whenever someone criticizes Falun Dafa, I talk about my husband's changes.
I supported my husband's efforts in clarifying the truth about Dafa. He tried to persuade me to take up the practice on many occasions, but I was poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party's indoctrination and did not believe in gods or Buddhas.
Challenging Master to Appear
I got up early one morning in Spring of 2016 to make breakfast for the family. After everyone left, I rested in bed.
I turned my head and saw Master's portrait. I said to Master, “If what you say is true, why don't you appear in front of me?” Indeed Master came out of the portrait! He was tall and dignified, and his hair was blue and curly. He looked at me compassionately and a moment later disappeared.
I rubbed my eyes thinking, “I don't believe what I just saw. If it's true, show me again.” Master stepped out of the picture again and held the same expression.
I climbed out of bed, and he disappeared. I then pulled back the curtains and let the sun in.
There is a Chinese saying nothing happens thrice. Just as I had this thought, Master appeared again, standing in front of me for real.
I quickly knelt down respectfully. My stubborn disbelief in the existence of gods was overturned!
When my husband came home, I told him what happened. He was truly happy for me. As of that day, I became a practitioner.
More Courageous and Wiser
Master purified my body several times after I began practicing Falun Dafa. Within a few months, all my illnesses disappeared, and I became energetic. I truly experienced how wonderful it is to practice Dafa. I told my husband every day about both the physical and mental changes I was going through.
A year after I began practicing, a group of police officers broke into my house and arrested my husband and other practitioners.
I remained calm and repeatedly went to the police station to demand my husband's release. I told the officers that Falun Dafa had turned my husband into a good man. I said, “When he was a ruffian, you left him alone. When he changed into a good person, you arrest him. Is there law in this country?”
Although I have only practiced Dafa for just over a year, the profound teachings have made me stronger, more courageous, and wiser.
