Touching Stories From When I Told People About Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am 85 years old, and I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1994. During my 25 years of cultivation, I’ve experienced Master Li Hongzhi's great benevolence.
I would like to tell several touching stories that happened when I went out to tell people about Falun Dafa and its persecution in China.
“You are truly saving people!”
It was warm, and flowers had just started blooming. A fellow practitioner and I went to a tourist spot to tell people about the persecution of Dafa.
There weren’t very many tourists, as most of the people there were elderly couples from the city. I walked over to one of them and said, “Hello! I’d like to tell you great news!”
I went on to say, “Have you heard about quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to secure your safety? The CCP has ruined traditional culture since its inception.
“It started in various political purges, such as the Three-Anti and Five-Anti campaigns, the Anti-Rightist Movement, the Cultural Revolution, the June 4th massacre of students, and the campaign to eradicate Falun Dafa. Over the years, 80 million people have been persecuted to death.”
Lastly, I said, “The CCP’s crime is so enormous that heaven will eliminate it. Anyone who is a member has to quit it to be safe. May I ask if you have joined the CCP, Communist Youth League, or Young Pioneers?”
The couple replied, “We’ve joined none of them.”
“That’s great,” I said, “Here are some pamphlets about Falun Dafa. Please remember, ‘Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ It will protect you from danger!”
The gentleman took the pamphlets and said excitedly, “You are truly saving people!”
I replied, “Yes. We are here to save people!” I gave them an engraved pendant, and he became tearful and said, “Thank you! Thank you!”
He put the pendant on his neck right away. After we distributed all the materials, we ran into the couple again, and they enthusiastically waved to us.
Tears Of Regret
At the tourist spot, I met another couple. The husband was tall, but he was limping.
His wife was helping him by holding his arm. I guessed his condition was the result of a stroke.
I warmly greeted them, “How are you, sir?”
“I’m not well. My body is like this,” He said dejectedly.
I replied, “Don’t worry. It will get better. Have you heard about quitting the CCP to secure your safety?”
He looked at me with surprise, “You practice Falun Dafa? I used to practice it myself.”
I smiled, “Yes, I practice Falun Dafa!”
I began to ask him about his condition, but his wife interjected before I could finish: “He practiced so well before, and he was diligent. He recovered from all his illnesses.”
She went on to say: “Later on, the suppression started, and he was too afraid to practice. Then, his body became like this.”
“You know Dafa is good. Don’t give up! Look at me,” I said, “I’m 84, and my body is in great health. Without practicing Falun Dafa, I would not be able to stand in front of you.”
“Ah? You are 84? You look like you are in your 60s. Your health is so good! I’m only 70, and I’m already like this!”
He said in tears, “I know the practice is good. I’ve kept the books well. I’m just afraid and don’t dare to practice!”
“You should hurry up and get your books out to study,” I replied, “Do you know any other practitioners?”
I advised him, “Go find them and join their study group. Your mind will change quickly that way, and your condition will improve!”
He asked: “Can I still practice?”
“Of course you can! Hurry up and cultivate! Master [Li Hongzhi] is still taking care of you. It’s not an accident for you to meet me today!”
Upon hearing my words, he cried like a child. I knew it was both tears of regret and tears of awakening.
“I’ll teach my wife to practice too!”
Two years ago, I went out to talk to people about Falun Dafa during the winter. I saw a man in his 50s and went over to him. He very much agreed with Dafa’s principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I also told him how the CCP has ruined traditional culture and morality. He agreed with that too.
He told me about a car accident in which he was run over but didn’t get hurt. From then on, he started to believe that he was protected by gods.
I said, “Gods are indeed protecting kind people all the time. The creator sees that human beings are now facing a big tribulation, and he asks Dafa practitioners to tell them the truth and help save them.”
“I want to read your [Falun Dafa] book too and learn your practice,” he exclaimed.
He was very happy but also a bit frustrated because he couldn’t afford a DVD player. His wife had been sick for years, and he had spent all their savings to treat her illness.
His youngest son just left for college that year, and he and his two older daughters had to work out of town to support the family. Upon hearing this, I immediately gave him 200 yuan for him to buy a DVD player.
I told him that Falun Dafa has a great effect on health and that as long as one practices with a pure heart and follows the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, even cancer patients have been cured.
He also learned about the hardship my family faced due to the persecution. He was moved to tears.
I visited him again a few days later, and he was very excited to see me and said: “I bought a DVD player and learned the exercises by following the instructions. The practice is so great! I felt warm all over and full of energy after doing the exercises once. Thank you, Auntie! I’m going home in a few days, and I'll teach my wife to practice too!”
