Special Student Achieves the Unexpected with the Guidance of Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I have a very unique student named Ren (alias) and he's now 13 years old. Before he came to me, he only attended school for less than a week before he was kicked out. I'd like to share his story with you.
When Ren was only two months old, one day he suddenly frothed at the mouth and became unconscious. His family rushed him to the ER. The chief physician examined him and said he had congenital epilepsy. The county hospital could not hospitalize infants, so the doctor recommended the family take him to one of the large hospitals in Shenyang or Beijing.
The family rushed to Shenyang that night. After expert consultations and tests, the diagnosis was the same as the county hospital's. Doctors recommended the family seek treatment in specialized hospitals in Beijing.
The family hurried to Beijing. After Ren underwent more exams, the diagnosis remained the same. The doctor told the family the infant's chance of survival was very small, and they should just take him home. The family was very sad and wept.
Holding her little grandson, Ren's maternal grandmother thought of Falun Dafa. She no longer suffered from multiple diseases after practicing Falun Dafa and she regained her health. Her entire family had witnessed this.
She thought for a moment, and then said firmly, "The baby won't die. He will survive! Falun Dafa can save him. Let's go home."
After several hours of long distance travel, the poor baby looked miserable, and the family's hearts were almost broken. His relatives all hoped the child could be saved.
The grandmother stayed with little Ren and kept playing the recordings of Master's lectures for him. After 24 hours he stopped twitching and his expression became normal. He cried and was able to drink some milk.
His entire family was overjoyed. They all said, "Thank you, Falun Dafa's Master! Falun Dafa is good!"
The baby recovered. All his relatives, friends and neighbors were amazed. The grandmother told the entire family, "It is Falun Dafa and Master Li who gave our little Ren his second life. We are indebted to Dafa for saving him!"
The story of how Ren survived spread throughout the surrounding villages, and many people began practicing Falun Dafa because of this.
The years passed in a flash, and Ren was old enough to go to school. But after attending school for less than a week, he was expelled. The school said Ren had ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and would not listen to anyone. He was not allowed to return to school until he was cured.
The parents were very worried and tried to reason with the school authorities multiple times, but the decision was irrevocable, and Ren had to stay home.
The parents came to me because I also practice Falun Dafa. After we talked it over I agreed to teach Ren.
My curriculum for him was Chinese and math, in addition to reading Falun Dafa books. After a few days I found Ren's problem: his serious illness in early childhood had slowed him down mentally. Even though he survived, his intelligence was still recovering.
Secondly, his family had spoiled and over-protected him, so he was very egotistical and restless. He had no common sense even though he was nine years old.
Everyone said that Ren was a "fool." His grandma brought him to class every day and sat with him. He often cursed her and kicked me. I tried to discipline him using everyday people's methods, but nothing worked. He kept talking back to me. When I was firm with him, his family didn't like it. I was in a big dilemma.
Master gave me wisdom and I took a fresh look at my special student. Ren's grandmother told me he liked to watch Master's lectures since he was little, and was even able to recite some poems from Hong Yin and Hong Yin Vol. II. So I studied the Fa with him and talked to him about using Dafa's principles of improving his character and becoming a better person. He was extremely interested.
He gradually learned to listen and became polite and even started to look within. One day I examined my reaction to something and said, "I lost my temper. I did not conform to Master's teachings."
Ren said, "Teacher, I have a lot of attachments and I have let Master down." He added, "Only studying the Fa without cultivating my character, isn't that the same as being an everyday person? I don't want to be an everyday person. I want to follow Master to the heavenly world."
From then on, Ren changed significantly. His mental abilities improved and his academic scores rose.
To teach him Chinese, I picked characters and words from Zhuan Falun as well as elementary textbooks. Ren read and memorized Chinese classics including Family Names, Three Character Classic, and Tang poetry. Later he memorized Master's Hong Yin and Lun Yu from Zhuan Falun. By the time he was in third grade, he was able to read Zhuan Falun from cover to cover.
With the improvement of his character, Ren was able to do something extraordinary – he could recite Zhuan Falun from memory. This mentally challenged boy could recite over three hundred pages, from the beginning to the end and in reverse, without a single missing character.
I tested him by starting to read any paragraph on any page of the book; he could continue reciting without making a mistake. I did other tests such as reading a few sentences on a random page, and I asked him which page I was on. He answered correctly every single time.
This ability was rare even for scholars, experts, or professors! I understood Master imprinted the book in Ren's mind because he was only able to read the book and did not even attempt to memorize it. Master gave him an amazing ability.
I told Ren, "This is a big reward Master has given you. You must cherish Master's merciful salvation." He said, "I thought everyone could do it." From then on, whenever he did something wrong, he could look for his own shortcomings by using Dafa's standards.
Whenever his grandmother clarified the facts about Falun Dafa to others, Ren would add, "My life was given by Dafa and Master. You will be blessed if you remember that Dafa is good." Ren studied the Fa every day. If his grandma was too busy, he would sit in front of Master's portrait and study a lecture of Zhuan Falun by himself.
He often helped with housework such as mopping the floor, doing dishes, and laundry. While doing chores, he would quietly say that it was a good thing to suffer hardships.
One day, several police officers walked into the village committee building with a few "Falun Dafa Is Good!" banners in their hands. Ren followed them. As soon as the officers laid the banners on the ground, Ren picked them up and told them that the banners were for saving people. The officers were amused.
Coming back to life from death, changing from mentally disabled to normal, and from normal to supernormal - Ren's amazing changes cannot be explained by science.
