Stories about My Granddaughter Doudou
(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner who began to practice in 1996. I have a granddaughter named Doudou who is eight years old. I would like to share some cultivation stories about her.
Helping Me Find Predestined People
Doudou has a deep predestined relationship with Dafa. When she was eight months old, she would smile when she saw Master Li’s picture. Her smile was genuine. When I read Dafa books to her, she always listened quietly and contentedly.
I started taking her out with me to tell people the facts about Dafa when she was a year old. I told her to smile if she saw people who had a predestined relationship with us, and I would talk to them about Dafa. She was adorable and very intelligent. When we were at a bus stop, she often grabbed people’s clothes and smiled at them. Then I would tell them the facts about Dafa. They usually accepted what I said.
On the way home one day, Doudou suddenly ran to a man in his 60s at a bus stop and stood next to him. I realized that was her way of telling me to talk to him about Dafa. A police car was parked nearby, but Doudou was just not leaving. So I discussed the facts about Falun Dafa with the man. Surprisingly, he easily agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
One day, a lady came up to us, complimented Doudou, and left quickly. Doudou couldn’t talk yet, but she pointed to the lady and gurgled, “Ah.” I understood that she was telling me the lady was a person with a predestined relationship, so I picked her up and ran to catch up with the lady. I talked with her about Dafa, and she quit the CCP.
Another time, I was out walking with Doudou and we came upon a lady walking her two small dogs. Doudou ran up to the dogs, and I followed, realizing then that I knew the lady. So I talked with her about Falun Dafa and she agreed with what I said and quit the CCP. She kept saying how adorable Doudou was.
We set off again, when Doudou suddenly stopped, turned around, and ran in the opposite direction. She wouldn't stop no matter how many times I called her. I ran after her and saw a woman in her 50s carrying a child on her back walking toward us: another predestined person. I talked with her about Dafa, and she happily quit the CCP.
Doudou’s Enlightenment Quality
When Doudou was two, she never turned on the light when she went to the bathroom at night. I asked her, “Aren't you afraid? Do you want Grandma to come with you?” She said, “I’m not afraid, Master’s fashen is with me.”
Once she was playing with a big flashlight and accidentally dropped it on her toe. She was just about to cry, but she stopped and said loudly, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Master is good!” Then she said, “Grandma, I’m not hurt anymore.”
At daycare when the teacher handed out fruit, Doudou always waited until last to take her piece. When the teacher asked her to get her piece first, she always picked the smallest one. I asked her why, and she said, “Master said we should put others before ourselves.”
When Doudou was in the first grade, a very naughty boy shared a desk with her. One day, when Doudou was doing her work, he kept shaking the desk so that she couldn’t write. Doudou told me, “Grandma, I wasn’t upset at all, and I didn’t argue with him, nor did I tell the teacher. I just thought about Master, and that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. I tolerated what he was doing and then he stopped shaking the desk.”
Another time, a classmate pushed her down, and her leg broke. It hurt a lot. She told me, “I didn’t make a sound. I walked to the side and sat on the ground. I thought, 'I am a young Dafa disciple, I have Master, and I will be all right.' After a while, my leg didn't hurt anymore.” I encouraged her, “Doudou, you behaved properly.”
Doudou loves reading Zhuan Falun. When she was almost two, she accidentally tore a page in the book. I scolded her. She was quiet and then said to Master Li’s picture in the book, “Master, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to tear the page.”
I was very surprised. At the time she could only say two-character words like papa, mama, master, etc. However, she was able to say a complete sentence to Master⸺ It was amazing.
When Doudou was four, she was able to read Zhuan Falun all the way through and even learned to recite some of it.
Helping Me Improve My Character
I filed a complaint in June 2015 against Jiang Zemin, the former CCP leader, for persecuting Falun Dafa. A couple of months later, I heard from a fellow practitioner that the police went to her house with her complaint and confiscated her picture of Master. I was afraid that they would come to my house and take my Dafa books, so I decided to hide them in a fellow practitioner’s garage. The fellow practitioner didn’t encourage my cautionary approach but didn’t comment on it either.
That night, I told Doudou, who was five at the time, what I had done. She said, “Grandma, you did it wrong.” She quoted Master, saying:
“Some people say that they will take my photo to the homes of their relatives or friends to keep evil spirits away. I am not here to keep away evil spirits for everyday people—that is the worst disrespect towards Teacher.” (Lecture Five, Zhuan Falun)
She asked, “Do you think what you did was right?” I replied, “Grandma didn’t leave the books at an ordinary person’s house. They are at a Dafa disciple’s house.” She said, “It’s still not right. A garage is for cars. How could you put Dafa books in such a filthy place?”
I felt so ashamed. I wasn’t even as good a cultivator as a child. I immediately said, “Doudou, Grandma recognizes her mistake. I will bring the Dafa books back tomorrow morning, and I will apologize to Master sincerely.”
Saving Her Mom
Before Doudou’s mother married my son in 2008, I helped her quit the CCP youth organizations. However, she was still deeply poisoned by the Party and even joined it in 2014.
One day, Doudou sadly said, “Grandma, what about my mom? She is a CCP member, and she doesn’t believe in Falun Dafa. She will be eliminated when disaster comes. I don’t want to lose my mom. What should I do?”
Seeing Doudou so sad, I said, “Grandma will clarify the truth to your mother.” She said that her mom wouldn’t listen. I said, “Then let’s send righteous thoughts. You do it at home, and I'll do it at my place.”
The next time Doudou came to my house, I asked her if she had sent righteous thoughts for her mom. She said she had but only once. I asked, “What should we do? Let’s send Master a plea.” She agreed and stood in front of Master’s photo with her hands together and said, “Please, Master, save my mom.” She said it three times in a row. Then, she got on her knees and kowtowed to Master. She did it nine times saying “Thank you, Master” each time.
A few days later, an opportunity arose. One evening, when only Doudou, her mother, and I were at home, I told Doudou that I would talk with her mother and asked her to send righteous thoughts to save her mom. She said she would. Then I went to Master’s photo and asked him to help us. Surprisingly, after talking with Doudou’s mother for just a short time, she agreed to quit the CCP. Doudou and I had big smiles on our faces.
Before I wrote this article, I told Doudou that I was going to write about her and send it to Minghui. She said, “Don’t write about me, write about yourself.” I said, “How about I write about both of us?” She said, “Sure, I’ll tell you what to write.”
Then she told me things I needed to note and said, “I’ll edit it after you are done.” When I asked how she would edit it, she replied, “Master said, ‘...by preserving the good part and removing the bad part...’” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
