Blessed by Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am an 83-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner who started to cultivate in 1994. In the past, I suffered from chronic gastritis, anemia, hypotension, tachycardia, frequent fainting spells, and backaches. On occasion, my gastric condition would flare up so badly that I could not eat due to severe vomiting. I would then be forced to have intravenous infusions just to survive.
In 1993, a friend introduced me to Falun Dafa. I eventually became a practitioner and encountered many miracles thereafter.
Participating in the 1993 Oriental Health Expo
In December 1993, I had the privilege of attending the Oriental Health Expo held in Beijing. The “China Falun Gong” booth was teeming with people waiting in line for queue numbers. Having arrived late, I did not manage to obtain a place for the morning or afternoon sessions, despite waiting a long time. As I was disappointedly getting ready to leave, a staff member ran over and informed me that a patient had not shown up. He asked if I wanted to take over this queue number. Overjoyed, I gratefully accepted.
Having obtained this precious queue number, I immediately decided to ask Master Li Hongzhi (the founder) to cure my grandson of his arrhythmia and tachycardia. As Master Li was too busy, one of his students treated my grandson. My grandson was instantly cured! After returning home, he could run, jump, and even play football. This miracle amazed my entire family. For years we had gone to famous major hospitals but to no avail. Yet a single treatment session by a qigong master cured him completely! At my grandson’s subsequent medical exam, the hospital doctors were amazed to find his condition had vanished.
During the Health Expo, I also managed to obtain a book, China Falun Gong, and an exercise instruction videotape. I also had the good fortune to meet Master Li at the booth. I managed to get my book signed by Master, an experience so exciting and overwhelming, I was tongue-tied throughout. As Master signed his name, I experienced an indescribable feeling of comfort, lightness, and happiness. Afterward, I guiltily chastised myself for not uttering even a word of thanks.
I came home from the expo, cold from the winter air and starving. I devoured a large bowl of rice before remembering my chronic stomach condition. Yet my stomach did not bother me in the least! I was so happy and excited that I could barely sit still. Master had taken me under his care! Falun Dafa saved me! My husband was equally amazed and agreed that Falun Dafa was clearly not an ordinary practice.
In 1994, I formally became a Falun Dafa practitioner. My illnesses vanished and I became more energetic, carefree, and cheerful. I started to put on weight and gained more stamina as my health improved by leaps and bounds.
Participating in Master's Lecture Sessions
During the 1993 Oriental Health Expo, I was able to attend Master’s lectures. The more I listened, the more amazed I felt. Master’s emphasis on moral values was something I had never heard of before! I felt elated at encountering this once-in-a-lifetime Dharma! From Master’s lecture, I learned the true meaning of life and the reason behind human suffering. Only by returning to our origins could we accomplish our true goal in life. Master’s profound, yet simple to understand teachings was the final push I needed. I decided to become a Falun Dafa practitioner.
During the session, Master said that he would help everyone adjust their bodies. He asked everyone in the audience to stand up, think of their own or a family member’s illness, extend a hand, stamp one foot, close their eyes and relax their bodies. Master would send out the Falun to adjust the person’s bodies. During that session, I thought about my daughter's gallstones. Ever since then her gallstones have disappeared! Not only did Dafa save me, it also saved my family!
Blessed by Dafa
My husband also used to suffer from poor health. His various illnesses included high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, severe back pain, enlarged prostate, and a poor immune system. A frequent hospital visitor, he underwent a variety of long-term Chinese and Western therapies.
Having witnessed the many supernormal benefits Dafa brought to his family, my husband was so deeply convinced of Dafa’s powers that he too voluntarily entered into cultivation practice. His illnesses soon miraculously vanished and we saved a lot of money on medical expenses. My children were overjoyed to see his recovery and were able to go about their lives with greater peace of mind.
Having greatly benefited from Falun Dafa, my family is always on the lookout for opportunities to spread the Fa. We have passed out copies of Master’s books and given microSD cards containing truth-clarification materials to relatives and friends. We also visited their homes in order to teach them the exercises. To date, many people have benefited from practicing Falun Dafa.
My middle daughter's mother-in-law was a long term hospital patient. After understanding the truth, she began listening to Minghui Radio's programs and recited, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Just as her condition took a turn for the worse, Master intervened. She was brought back to life and restored to health, living her retirement years in bliss.
My youngest daughter's mother-in-law suffered from rectal cancer. She was admitted to the hospital as her condition became progressively severe. My husband and I packed some truth-clarification materials and undertook the long journey to see her. This woman was impressed with our robust physical health and stamina, as well as our sincere concern for her welfare. She decided to place her trust in Dafa, silently recited “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”, and withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organizations.
Her health improved and she was soon discharged from the hospital. She was able to resume helping with the household chores. Her daughter was so impressed by her mother’s quick recovery that she needed little convincing to believe in the goodness of Dafa. She immediately quit the CCP and the Young Pioneers organizations and sincerely thanked us for helping her mother.
My husband seizes every opportunity to extoll the goodness of Dafa and clarify the facts about the malicious CCP. Many of his friends learned the truth behind the persecution during their gatherings and chose to quit the CCP.
My cousin was a lung cancer patient who, having understood the truth behind the persecution, chose to quit the CCP. She would often silently recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”, and her health started to improve. Last year, she decided to become a Dafa cultivator, saying, “I have benefited from Falun Dafa. I want to spread the practice to others. I used to believe in the lies and propaganda spread on radio and television. Now I offer my apologies to Master Li. Falun Dafa is a good practice and I thank Master Li for saving me.” Now, my cousin frequently tells others about the effectiveness of Falun Dafa in curing illnesses and maintaining health. She also clarifies the facts about the CCP’s persecution of Dafa practitioners.
As more people become convinced about the goodness of Dafa, it is my wish that more Chinese people can hear and accept the truth, obtain salvation and enjoy a better future!
