Grateful for Master Watching Over Me
(Minghui.org) I have gone through detours prior to officially starting on my cultivation path, although Master Li kept giving me hints. I finally began to practice Falun Dafa, also called Falun Gong. I am very grateful that Master never gave up on me – someone who took her good old time to step onto the cultivation path.
Taking My Time to Begin
When I first was introduced to Falun Dafa, I was 25 years old and had just been diagnosed with hepatitis B. I had just gotten married and wanted to be in good health so I could conceive and deliver a healthy baby.
My husband worked in a different town and only came home on holidays. I thought that taking up a qigong practice would also be a good way to lessen my loneliness.
One of my former classmates and coworkers was a Falun Dafa practitioner. She gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun and told me to finish reading it in one go the first time. After I did, I made a wish to become a practitioner.
I went to the practice site to do the exercises every morning. I still remember that one day when I was doing the fifth exercise, I was thinking, “Falun Dafa is the Buddha Fa. Although I am so young, I will become a Buddha. How amazing.”
However, due to my pursuits and limited understanding, I did not truly follow Dafa’s requirements. I did not cultivate my xinxing. There was no obvious sign of improved health. Besides, I had been indoctrinated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and developed doubts about Dafa at one point. Thus, I continued to go see doctors and take medicines.
Modern Medicine Could Not Restore My Son's and My Health
My son was born in 1998. When he was three years old, he, too, was diagnosed with hepatitis B. I was desperate.
Then the persecution of Falun Gong started. Although I did not truly cultivate, I still was affected by the persecution. I lost my job and source of income. My husband took my son and me to different hospitals to find a cure, but modern medicine and science could not restore our health.
I looked at our son and felt guilty. I believed in modern technology. But even though we were willing to spend any amount of money to restore our health, nothing could be done.
Falun Dafa Restored Our Health
As I was feeling hopeless I picked up Zhuan Falun again. I realized that I did not truly believe in Master and Dafa. I did not truly cultivate solidly. I did not follow strictly the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I even had doubts about Dafa. I cried and cried, “Master, I was wrong. Please help save me. I want to become a true practitioner.”
Master said, “When one’s Buddha-nature emerges, it will shake ‘the world of ten directions.’” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
Once I stopped my pursuits, my son’s hepatitis B disappeared! He was finally admitted to preschool. At first, I could not believe that this was for real. After we took him to three hospitals to recheck, we found that he had recovered his health. I was so grateful that Master saved my son, saved me and my family!
Then, I was offered a job and could take care of my son while working.
I memorized Zhuan Falun three times over the past 10 years. I continued to cultivate my xinxing and lived by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Two physical exams confirmed that my hepatitis B had disappeared as well. I experienced the power of Dafa and have benefited from practicing Dafa.
After I started practicing Dafa, my mind and body improved significantly. I worked very hard and received recognition from my coworkers and the management.
Dafa not only gave my son and me great health, our family’s financial situation also improved significantly. We have a new house and a new car. My husband also bought me a diamond ring. People around us witnessed the power of Dafa – we experienced good fortune and benefits because of my practicing Dafa.
I am grateful for what Master and Dafa have given us. I never met Master in person and never paid any tuition to Master. I only follow what Master taught us in the Dafa books and cultivate my xinxing.
Factory Head Benefited from Understanding the Truth
Due to practicing Falun Dafa, I was dismissed from my prior job. I started a new job at another factory. I clarified the truth about Dafa to coworkers at both places.
When I shared my story with the head of the factory where I currently work, he was very understanding. He took me aside, and said, “You just keep working here, and do not worry about anything. I will give you a raise of 300 yuan per month.”
While I was distributing Falun Dafa informational materials, I was arrested and held in a detention center for 15 days. The head of the factory and my coworkers were looking for me everywhere. After I was released, I asked him if he would agree to have me return to work. He asked me what happened and then said that I would still be welcome. He could not believe that I was detained for talking about Dafa to people. When other coworkers asked about my situation, he helped cover it up for me.
Because the factory head treated Dafa practitioners well, he also benefited from Falun Dafa. Once, when he was traveling, he had symptoms of a stroke. But he recovered quickly and came back to work in only a few months.
I am thankful to Master for giving me the wisdom and strength to cultivate. Master has removed all roadblocks on my cultivation path. Only if I practice diligently, help more sentient beings understand the truth, will I not let down Master’s benevolent salvation!
