Experiencing the Power of Dafa

Ms. Yang Li, a current resident of San Francisco, was a former opera costume designer at the Art Department of the Huangmei Drama Performing Arts Center.

Ms. Yang was weak and sick from an early age. She had suffered from many diseases, including hepatitis A, hepatitis B, gastrointestinal disorders, high blood pressure, and others.

When she was working on a costume design for the Anhui television station in mid-1990, she suddenly vomited blood and fainted. She was diagnosed with late-stage cancer and had an immediate surgery. The doctor gave her a two-year life span based on the most optimistic estimate.

Then, in the second half of 1993, she suffered severe pain in her right elbow joint. She went to see a doctor, who gave her an injection, but later a lump grew at her elbow joint. An examination showed that her bone had changed to a honeycomb shape, and the doctors suspected that her cancer had metastasized into bone cancer.

She felt ill in 1995 and had an examination. The doctor suspected that she suffered nasopharyngeal carcinoma and told her that she might only live for another three to five months.

Then, in early November of 1995, a friend who practiced Falun Dafa gave her a copy of the book Falun Gong, the introductory book of Falun Dafa, and several Falun Buddha Fa in Hefei City brochures.

She felt that Falun Dafa was so good, and she was determined to take up the practice, but she was too weak to walk to the nearest practice site. The volunteer coordinator told her to read the book and study the movements at home by following the teaching materials in the book, and suggested that she wait until the winter was over before she came to the practice site.

She read the book and did the exercises at home. She felt that her health was improving and could finally walk to the practice site in April 1996.

Since Falun Dafa is a genuine cultivation practice, it is beyond ordinary principles. A cultivator must discipline and change himself by following high level principles if he wants to achieve good health and be free of illness. Ms. Yang followed Falun Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, became a good person, considered others' needs first, and took fame and personal gain lightly. She looked inside to find her own faults during times of conflicts.

Gradually, she became illness free. Over two decades have passed since she started practicing Falun Dafa. She has not had to consult a doctor or taken a pill. She became energetic and healthy.

At her work place, she was responsible and diligent, never complained or competed for fame and personal gain. As a result, she gained recognition and respect from her coworkers and supervisors, and was given the Excellent Worker Award every year.

She became a good daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and neighbor. She had a harmonious family and developed good relationships with relatives.

Recovering from Debilitating Blood Disease

Ms. Huang Lingyan (nickname Huang Xingjiao), 44 years old, is now living in Foshan City, Guangdong Province.

She was born in the Sanzeli community of Hengjiang Village, Baiyang Township, Xiapu County, Fujian Province in 1974. It was a very small hill community with only a dozen households. Her parents were forced to move there after having been persecuted during the CCP's political movements. The small hill was isolated from the outside world, so it took her more than one hour to walk to school.

As a teenager, in the early 1990s, she suffered from serious illnesses. She often had stomachaches and felt severe pain. Sometimes she fainted while walking. When she awakened, she could not remember when and how she had fallen down. She consulted a doctor in a hospital and was told that she had a blood disease similar to leukemia.

She moved to Foshan in Guangdong to make a living. Whenever she felt extreme pain, she was fascinated with thoughts of committing suicide without implicating others. She was filled with the endless torment of the disease at the age of 20.

July 23, 1996, became an unforgettable day for her. On that morning, she went to Chuihong Park for a walk and saw many people sitting in meditation. They ranged from the elderly to little kids, and were very peaceful and tranquil. She was drawn to the scene, and she was told when asked that they were practicing Falun Dafa and would provide free teaching.

She got two Dafa books from the Foshan Library: Falun Gong and Zhuan Falun. Since then, she has walked on the Falun Dafa cultivation path. She followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. About a month later, she was free of illness.

Three months later, she went back to her hometown. Her parents, who were Christians and rejected any other belief, had no objection at all when they witnessed their daughter's good health. She taught her two younger brothers Huang Zhenyu and Huang Zhenzhou to practice Falun Dafa and both of them benefited greatly. Her youngest brother Huang Zhuanzhou had disabilities and bad hearing and had never been to school. After he practiced Falun Dafa, he was able to share his cultivation experience in front of thousands of people at an experience sharing conference.

She got married to Mr. Qiao Junhua, also a practitioner, at the end of 1997, and gave birth to a lovely girl in 1999. The family was very happy and harmonious. They also had a good relationship with their neighbors.

Recovering from Late-Stage Cirrhosis of the Liver

Mr. Gan Yuntao was a former teacher at the Macheng No. 1 Experimental Elementary School. At the age of 29, in July 1996, he was diagnosed with late-stage cirrhosis. His stomach was as big as that of a pregnant woman of eight months.

Ms. Gan was aware of how serious his disease was. He went back home to discuss with his wife about the medical treatment. The salary of an elementary school teacher is very low and his wife had no job. They had two sons, a one-year-old and a seven-year-old.

Anyway, liver cirrhosis was an incurable disease. Moreover, if they borrowed money to pay for the medical expense, how would his wife and two sons repay the debt in the future? He decided to give up treatment.

A friend introduced Falun Dafa to them, suggesting that he could return to good health. It is also taught for free.

Mr. Gan soon decided to take up the practice of Falun Dafa. He read Zhuan Falun from 7:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. His body had a very strong reaction in the morning, as expected.

His family took him to the practice site that evening, where he watched practitioners doing the Dafa exercises. When he returned home, he found that his belly had shrunk and he felt more comfortable. On the second day, he went to the practice site on his own. Upon returning home after doing the exercises, his belly was back to a normal size. On the third day, he was able to ride a bicycle to the practice site. His relatives, friends, and colleagues witnessed his full recovery.

His wife Ms. Liu Jiqing took up the practice of Falun Dafa in 1998. She also returned to good health and they lived a harmonious life.

The Horror of the CCP

On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution of Falun Dafa. When the CCP defamed the Falun Dafa founder Mr. Li Hongzhi and Falun Dafa, people who benefited from the practice spoke up and told the government that Falun Dafa is good and that it's wrong to crack down on this cultivation practice. The communist regime refused to listen and went ahead with the persecution.

Ms. Yang Li's home has been ransacked three times. She was taken to a brainwashing center four times, tortured, held at a detention center for 25 days, detained at the police bureau three times, and harassed by police numerous times.

Ms. Huang Lingyan, her husband Mr. Qiao Junhua, two younger brothers Mr. Huang Zhenyu and Huang Zhenzhou were frequently arrested, detained, and taken to brainwashing centers. Mr. Qiao was tortured and became mentally disoriented.

Mr. Gan Yuntao was detained twice and forced to pay huge financial penalties. He was forced to give up the practice of Falun Gong and passed away in 2003.

The CCP has been persecuting Falun Dafa over the past 19 years while defaming Falun Dafa, claiming that practitioners ignored family and killed many people.

However, the facts are that the CCP has been killing people, while Falun Dafa has given many people new ways of life when they had reached the end of the road.

Falun Dafa practitioners have gained health and harmonious families. It's the CCP that has deprived millions of practitioners of a normal life.
