Compassionate Master Protected My Life in a Car Accident
(Minghui.org) I have been practicing Falun Dafa for over 20 years, and haven't taken any medicine since I started practicing. I have gained a healthy body and improved character from cultivation – Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, taught us that true cultivators do things according to the principles of 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.'
I had a car accident in November 2017 that seriously injured me. But I didn't force the driver to compensate me at all, and recovered quickly without even seeing the doctor. As I practice the principles of 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' in my daily life, I have benefited greatly.
Handling an Accident in a Different Way
I rode my motorbike to a practitioner's home and was hit by a van from behind at an intersection. I lost consciousness. When I came to, I asked the van driver to help me move my motorbike off the road first to let the cars pass by.
Master's words came to my mind:
“Nowadays, human moral values have been distorted. The driver indeed drove the car too fast, but how could he possibly hit someone on purpose? Didn’t he do it unintentionally?” (Zhuan Falun)
I comforted the van driver, who was petrified. I said, “Don't worry about me, as I have my Master to protect me. I won't ask you for money, but you must remember 'Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!' If you had hit someone else who isn't a Dafa practitioner, I don't think they'd let you off so easy.”
The driver asked me to go to the hospital to get a check up. My chin and nose were bleeding, and my right cheek, eyes and mouth were swollen.
I used tissues on my chin to stop the bleeding, and continued comforting the driver, “My Master asks us to consider others first. You drove fast, but I'm sure you didn't hit me on purpose.”
The driver said, “You're such a kind person! I'm lucky to have met a good person today!”
The driver then took out a 100 yuan note from his pocket and gave it to me. I refused it and told him that I would be alright.
He said, “I will feel better if you take the money.” So I took it to reduce his guilt and donated the money to the Falun Dafa material site to help save more people.
When I arrived at the fellow practitioner's home, she was shocked after seeing the state of my face from the accident. I sat on her sofa and started sending forth righteous thoughts.
I asked for Master's help to get better, as I needed to go to work in the afternoon. Just ten minutes later, my face had healed exponentially.
My manager saw my wound when I went to work, and asked if the driver gave me any compensation. I told him that the driver forced me to take 100 yuan.
My manager held my hand and said to me, with tears in his eyes: “You are too kind!” Another colleague said, “You're foolish! One thousand yuan wouldn't be enough, let alone 100 yuan. How could you let him go and not ask him to leave his contact details? What will you do if you have problems later on?”
I understood my colleague's concern, but I am a Dafa practitioner. I know I have a higher moral standard to follow.
Over the next two to three days, I had a serious headache, and a negative message continually appeared in my mind telling me that I have a concussion, and will suffer from it.
I kept sending righteous thoughts and negated the interference. My wounds gradually recovered. Only my chin took some time to close up, as it was a deep cut. My colleagues thought it was amazing that the cut on the chin cleaned up well without having stitches.
One of my colleagues witnessed the process of my recovery, and said: “Falun Gong practitioners really are different. Look how she's recovered so quickly.”
“There is no affect between master and discipleThe Buddha’s grace remolds Heaven and EarthWhen disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide” (Hong Yin Volume II)
I now have a better and deeper understanding of Master's poem after the car accident. Only by cultivating diligently can we live up to Master's compassionate salvation.
