Power of Falun Dafa Experienced by Practitioner's Family
(Minghui.org) I am a nurse who works in a hospital. At the end of 1996, I was accidentally injured in my lower back while moving items at the hospital. I was diagnosed with an injury to the lumbar intervertebral disc. The condition gradually worsened, affecting my left leg and making me limp. I had to recuperate at home.
The director of orthopedics suggested that I have surgery to correct the problem. I didn't have the courage to undergo such a surgery. I was the head nurse in the operating room, and I knew this kind of surgery very well. Now, I needed to have this surgery, and I was not comfortable with that thought! I concluded that if my condition further worsened and developed into urinary incontinence, I would consider surgery.
Introduced to Falun Dafa
Nurse Xiao Ai from our hospital visited me. She told me that her mother had more than a dozen illnesses before she practiced Falun Dafa, and had recovered from all of them.
When Xiao previously mentioned Falun Dafa to me, I told her that we studied medicine, and that she was being superstitious. Today, she mentioned Falun Dafa again. I didn't want to hurt her feelings and said that I would give it a try.
She sent me a book titled Zhuan Falun and an audio tape the next day. I read the book and felt that the contents were different from other books, and quite novel. After I read half of the book, I found that my left leg was no longer hurting, and I could walk normally – it was amazing! I understood that Zhuan Falun is a real treasure, a book from heaven!
I immediately went to the hospital to see the hospital's president, and told him that I had recovered. He was surprised to hear this, as I was going to have surgery. I told him that Xiao Ai gave me the book Zhuan Falun, and before I had finished reading it, I had recovered from my injuries! He looked at me skeptically. I said it was true, and it was amazing!
Later, the president noticed that the Dafa disciples at our hospital were never paid for their efforts. The practitioners would tell whoever was ill to practice Falun Dafa! Every day more than a dozen practitioners at our hospital studied the Falun Gong teachings.
After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Dafa, we went to Beijing to petition for Falun Dafa. The president of the hospital helped us to keep our jobs at the hospital, while practitioners in other companies were being laid off.
With the continuous learning of Falun Dafa, I also recovered from my other illnesses, including endometriosis and vertigo. I have not taken any medicine for more than 20 years, and I really have a very light and easy feeling, without any illness!
My Family Supports and Benefits from Dafa
My husband witnessed the changes in me after I began to practice Falun Dafa, and he supported my cultivation. He never complained when I went to Beijing to petition for Falun Dafa, when I had gone into hiding to avoid persecution, or when I was illegally detained. He took good care of our family and our children during these times. He helped practitioners deliver Dafa truth-clarification materials every time he was asked to do so.
When my husband was brushing his teeth at midnight on December 24, 2008, he suddenly realized that his lower back would not move. He managed to get to our bed to wake me up. I asked him what happened? He smiled and said: “Nothing, I can't move, give me a hand.” I dragged him onto the bed, and told him that he may have a herniated lumbar disc, and I would ask the hospital to give me a few days off to take care of him.
The next day, he couldn't go to work. His workplace needed a written diagnosis from a hospital in order to take sick days. He couldn't move at all, and I couldn't move him either. So I called an ambulance and took him to a hospital for an examination. The diagnosis was acute lumbar disc herniation. I didn't pick up the medicine the doctor prescribed. I said to my husband that we have Dafa and Master; what are we afraid of? He said with conviction, "Yes, let's go home!"
After returning home, I arranged for him to lie on the floor. I played Master's audio lectures for him. After two days, I helped him sit up to do the sitting meditation. His condition improved every day. On January 4, 2009 he was able to walk, and he drove us to my mother-in-law's home. How could someone with a herniated lumbar disc be cured so fast? Dafa is amazing! Master is compassionate, and even took care of my family members who don't practice Falun Dafa.
It really is that “The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities.” (Lecture Three, Zhuan Falun)
“...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia”)
My mother is 93 years old. She was widowed at the age of 38 and raised four children by herself. The youngest was three at that time, and the oldest was nine. She has experienced all kinds of hardships throughout her life while raising four children to adulthood. She is kind and willing to help others. When she was 82 years old, she came down with tachycardia and had difficulty breathing. She was hospitalized, and diagnosed with atrial fibrillation.
After receiving treatment, her condition did not improve significantly. She was saying that she probably would not live too much longer. I told her that she should not be afraid, and that she could learn to practice Falun Dafa with me. She said that she had no strength to practice. I said: “You can first recite, 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!'” She recited it every day, sometimes hundreds of times. Her condition gradually improved, but she was still taking medicine.
Later, she began to read Zhuan Falun and do the sitting meditation. Gradually, she stopped taking the medicine. Whenever she saw that her relatives and friends were sick, she told them that reciting, "Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" can cure their illnesses.
My elder brother's friend asked how come his mother's health is so good. My brother told his friend that my mother does a cultivation practice called Falun Dafa, and it has given her good health. After my brother told his friend, he said he felt very proud! His friend asked why? He said: “My younger sister practices Falun Dafa. I am proud that my family members practice Falun Dafa!” When our family has held dinner parties during the holidays, my older brother raises his glass and says: “Falun Dafa is good.” And we would respond with, “Falun Dafa is good!”
My mother-in-law is 94 years old. She has six children, and my husband is the youngest. My mother-in-law has said to everyone, “My youngest daughter-in-law is better than my daughter; she cooks for me everyday after work, buys clothes for me, and takes me on vacations. These days it is difficult to find such a good daughter-in-law.”
When she was 90 years old, she accidentally fell down the steps while taking a walk in the garden. I came home from work and found her in bed. She said she fell in the garden that afternoon. I asked her why she didn't call me. She said that nothing serious happened, yet she struggled to walk home. I asked her: “No one helped you?” She said: “I fell to the ground. People passed by me, and no one cared about me.”
I checked her, and found that her wrist had a bone fracture and her pelvis may have also had a problem. I immediately called her eldest daughter, eldest son, and second son. We took her to our hospital for a CT scan. She was diagnosed with a left wrist fracture and a pelvic fracture. She was too old to have surgery. Her wrist had to be fixed to a board, and the pelvic fracture may recover over time with rest. After returning home, I told her to recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Three weeks later, my mother-in-law was able to walk by herself. Now she is back to normal and often goes out for a walk! Generally, a 90-year-old person who had a pelvic fracture would be paralyzed.
Many amazing things have happened in our family. I will not list them one by one. But, I want to tell people that Falun Dafa is righteous, and is not what the Communist Party has said. I hope more people will know the truth and be blessed.
