The Power of Dafa: Benefiting from Believing in Dafa
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners have told people how good Falun Dafa is and that those who believe in it will benefit and experience its power. There are many examples that have backed up that assertion.
90-Year-Old Woman Gains New Life
My 90-year-old mother complained of an excruciating headache in 2012. The village doctor tried to treat her, but within three days, she was in critical condition. The doctor asked that she be transferred to a large hospital.
The doctors said Mother had cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaking from the medulla section of her brain. They found a one-centimeter crack in her skull. The doctor said that, even if she survived, she would probably have dementia. “For someone her age, there’s no known treatment.” The doctor advised us to take her home and take good care of her.
At home I told my mother, “Mom, you see that all my illnesses disappeared, even my allergic rhinitis, after I started practicing Falun Dafa. I haven’t taken any medicine for over 10 years. You should believe in Dafa, too. Only Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, can help you recover and save your life. The hospital just told you to go home and for us to take good care of you.”
My mother agreed to practice Dafa, so I patiently taught her to memorize, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I also asked her to listen to Master’s lectures, and I read the Fa to her at night.
My mother recovered within a week. She told family and friends, “Fortunately, my daughter Xiaosi practices Falun Dafa. She taught me to say, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ I recovered within a short time. You should all recite those phrases and you’ll benefit, too.”
We hope that people will read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Dafa. Whoever reads it and believes in the teachings will benefit.
Benefiting from Falun Dafa: Injured Leg Heals
Report from China
My eldest son is an electrician. One day when he was putting up an electric utility pole, he pushed really hard and damaged a tendon in the back of his right leg. It was extremely painful and his ankle turned black and purple. His coworkers took him to the hospital.
The doctors examined him and advised amputation. My son firmly rejected the idea. We took him to a different hospital, but the diagnosis and proposed treatment were the same.
Our family decided he should have traditional treatment, which included surgery but not amputation. We used our network to find the best doctor to do the operation. He was only given a local anesthetic because we were afraid that putting him out totally might harm him.
Before the surgery, I asked him to keep reciting to himself, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and ask Master Li to help him. After the surgery, my son told me that he kept asking Master to protect him when he was laying on the operating table. Then he felt someone touch his face and he fell asleep.
When the doctor first cut into the leg, my son's blood was black and dark, but then fresh red blood spurted out. Seeing it, the doctor knew that there was hope of saving my son's leg. When the surgery was over, my son was still asleep. The doctor woke him up, and my son said he felt no pain at all.
The doctor said, “Your family must worship a great Buddha. Only one out of a hundred people are as lucky as your son. He’s truly fortunate. However, even when his leg heals, his heel won't tolerate much weight. I’m afraid he will have to walk on his toes.”
After my son came home, he decided to practice the Falun Dafa exercises with me. Sometimes he felt countless small substances spinning on his injured leg. He was amazed and asked me what they were. I told him, “Master is taking care of you. Faluns are fixing your body.”
To do the first exercise, I told him to push his head up and his feet down while he stretched very hard. He didn’t dare to push his foot down at first, because it was very painful. Then, gradually, his heel could touch the ground. After more than 10 days, he discarded his crutches and was able to take big steps.
My son’s leg is now back to normal. People can’t believe that doctors predicted that his right leg would be disabled for life.
My son tells everyone he meets that Falun Dafa cured his leg. He also often tells his friends who work for the public security system, “Without Falun Dafa, my leg would have been disabled long ago. You shouldn't persecute Falun Dafa anymore.”
