(Minghui.org) I am a physician. During the 1997 New Year holidays, I was invited to a friend's home to watch the videos of Master Li's (the founder of Falun Gong) Falun Buddha Law Lectures in Guangzhou. The visit changed my life.
What Master taught me was completely different from what I had read in other Buddhist books. I was deeply moved and inspired. From that moment, I was so fortunate to become a Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) practitioner.
Prior to my cultivation, I suffered from rhinitis, anemia, chest tightness, shortness of breath, low blood pressure, headache, confusion, dizziness, and breast hyperplasia. I always felt fatigued and depressed and often took medicines.
My husband and I had tried all kinds of qigong and nothing worked. I had read all the Buddhist books I knew. My husband also worshiped many Buddha statues with incense sticks. Our efforts did not help and my health deteriorated further and further.
Within two weeks of practicing Falun Gong, all my diseases disappeared completely. The lump caused by breast hyperplasia also vanished. I walked with light steps. I was very happy. Seeing my changes, my parents strongly supported my practicing Falun Gong.
I conducted myself in accordance with the principles of Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance) to become a good person and be considerate to others.
I used to slide along with the decline of social morality and became very greedy. I accepted patients' cash in any amount. After cultivation, I started to consider the welfare of the patients. I did not ask for overtime pay or time-off from the hospital for my extra hours of treating emergency patients. I did not take money from patients any more. One time, I even gave an elderly village patient 60 yuan to help pay for his medical expenses.
Knowing that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, our hospital president tried to test my “forbearance.” He purposely held my pay back on payday. I was calm and still did my work as usual without mentioning the paycheck. A few days later, the hospital president happily handed me my pay. He praised me with the words, “You are amazing.”
In our family tradition, we make dumplings on New Year's Eve. On the 1998 New Year's Eve, my husband suddenly said, “I do not want to do it this year.”
He put down the dough and walked away. I was not happy, but I quickly thought of “Ren” (“Forbearance”) in Zhen-Shan-Ren and started to calmly make the dumplings.
When I looked up at Master's photo, I saw him laughing instead of smiling in the picture. “Wow! There is really a Buddha in the world,” I said. I felt very good and vigorously rolled the dough to make the dumpling skin. Surprisingly, my husband came back and worked together with me.
Since Jiang Zemin's regime launched the persecution against Dafa practitioners in 1999, my husband and I appealed in Beijing and we both were fired from our jobs. My husband was detained in labor camps twice and displaced from our home for six years.
I was arrested three times and incarcerated in labor camps twice. My pay was withheld for two years. I was also fined for more than 10,000 yuan, which was later deducted from my pay. A single-family house of 700 square feet cost 30,000 yuan in 2000.
My physician's certificate and medical practice license were revoked. We lived in extreme poverty and my child was forced to drop out of middle school because I could not afford the tuition.
I did street sweeping work for a living. Some streets were very dirty. Sweeping those streets is drudgery which everyone tries to avoid. I voluntarily took the work. For this reason, everyone on the cleaning team respected me and loved to work with me. I took every opportunity to tell them the facts about Falun Gong and helped some quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
Under the merciful protection of Master, I got my medical job back because the leader at my hospital reissued my physician's certificate and medical license.
I have worked for several private hospitals. I seriously told the leader of each hospital that, as a clinician, I would work hard but I would not write false medical reports. I also introduced Dafa to doctors, nurses, staff members, and patients.
I once worked at a geriatric hospital. Many patients there had difficulty walking, and some did not have children nearby to look after them.
“Of course, while cultivating in ordinary human society, we should be good to our parents and look after our children. Under all circumstances, we must be good and kind to others, not to mention to our family members. We should treat everyone in the same way. We must be good to our parents and children and be considerate of others in all respects. Such a heart is thus unselfish, and it is a heart of kindness and benevolence—it is compassion.” (Zhuan Falun, Lecture Six)
I thus treated them like my parents. I patiently explained to them their health conditions. I helped them get in and out of bed, and helped them put on their shoes. I even personally pushed their wheelchairs to nurses.
One day, a woman in her forties said to me, “Doctor, you are really compassionate.”
I told her, “I believe in Falun Dafa. Our Master taught us to be compassionate to others. We are in the Dharma-Ending Age and our Master spreads the universal principles to save sentient beings.”
“I did not know that Falun Gong is so good,” another woman said.
I added, “The CCP is evil. Only by quitting it can you be saved. You should make the right choice for a good future.”
In the end, these two women quit the CCP.
I told many seriously ill patients to recite, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They all quit the CCP after their illnesses disappeared.
Falun Dafa has widely spread to save sentient beings. Many miracles have happened to patients around me. Some of the miraculous stories exemplify the power of Dafa.
A few years ago in my clinic, a patient in her forties was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid tumor. After the tumor was removed, cancer cells were detected. She came to see me and cried, “The doctor at the Shenyang Medical College advised me to have my uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tube removed.”
I said, “Don't worry. The Buddha Fa is boundless and you will be fine. As long as you sincerely recite 'Falun Dafa is good', you can be saved from adversity.”
Seeing her doubt my words, I added, “Just try it for four months. It will work. If it does not, you have nothing to lose.”
Three months later, she came back and gave me a case of powdered milk. She happily said that her cancer cells were gone. I took this opportunity to tell her more about Falun Gong.
On another occasion, a woman visited a hospital where I was learning ultrasound techniques. She had a bump as big as a fetal head in her abdomen. The gynecologist at the hospital suggested that she go to Shenyang Medical College. She cried, “ I am divorced. I do not have money. I do odd jobs to pay for my child's college expenses.”
I sympathized with her. I stopped her on her way out.
I said, “I can help you. Have you heard of the profound cultivation practice of Falun Gong? It has healing power. It cured the lump in my breast.”
“I don't have time,” she said.
I said, “Just sincerely recite 'Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good'. I am sure you will be blessed.” I also gave her a Dafa amulet.
Three and a half months later, this woman came back to take an ultrasound. The lump had disappeared, without surgery. She found me and said that she came back to let me know that my advice worked. Everyone felt that it was incredible.
I was happy for her. I also appreciated what Master had done.
Another miracle was about a 17-year-old girl who came to the hospital to have an ultrasound for her carotid artery. This girl said that she had already gone to Shenyang Medical University for treatment but was told that her problem was incurable.
I told her, “You are so lovely! I feel very bad about your situation. Why don't you try to practice Falun Gong? It can save you.”
She replied that her aunt is a Falun Gong practitioner, but her mom didn't allow her to practice it. Later, her mother came to the hospital for an ultrasound. I took this opportunity to talk to her mother.
I said, “Your daughter has a serious ailment and only Falun Gong can save her. Don't pass up any chance of saving her; otherwise, you will be regretful. How about I let her stay so she can practice Falun Gong with her aunt for a few days?”
Several days later, this girl came back to see me. She told me that she decided to practice Falun Gong with her aunt and she had already withdrawn from the Young Pioneers, one of the CCP's affiliated youth organizations.
She came back again for a follow-up two weeks later. Her carotiditis had improved significantly. “Isn't it a miracle?” she asked excitedly.
