Experiencing the Preciousness of Dafa
(Minghui.org) When I read the book Zhuan Falun for the first time in 1997, each word appeared in golden yellow. A few days later, the words in the book appeared in rainbow colors, like colored lights.
The Joy of Obtaining Dafa
When I first started to practice Falun Dafa, I didn't know what the words Buddha and Dao represented, or how to cultivate. But I followed whatever Master said.
I was born in the countryside and did attend school. I was semi-illiterate. I didn't know the majority of words in the book Zhuan Falun. So I wrote the words that I couldn't read on a piece of paper. I asked my husband about these words after he came home. Sometimes my daughter helped me, too. I studied the Fa whenever I had time. Every time I studied the Fa, I felt tranquil, and tears of joy streamed down my face.
At night, twelve days after I started attending the group Fa-study, I saw many spinning Falun, in blue, green, and other colors, in my home. During the daytime, I saw in my body and arms a ball connected to a line, another ball connected to a line, and so on—all were connected. When my husband came home, I saw that his body was like this too. I supposed that was the molecular structure of the body that Master had talked about. I also saw that practitioners were covered with white light—I was amazed. I guessed that it was their energy field. I felt very light as I walked, as if someone was pushing me from behind. My complexion also turned fair, rosy, and tender.
“...another reason is that Shakyamuni is a Buddha, so his words carry Buddha-nature.” (“Fa-Teaching Given at the Conference in Sydney”)
When I read this sentence, I immediately saw Master standing in a yellow cassock, holding one palm erect. My joy at the time was beyond words.
When I meditated for the first time, I crossed my legs in a half-lotus position for 15 minutes. When I looked at others, they were all crossing their legs in the full-lotus position. I wondered why I couldn't do that. I was determined to cross my legs as the others did. The next day, I meditated for half an hour, although it was extremely painful. I tried hard to meditate like that every day, and after three or four months, I could finally meditate with my legs in the full-lotus position. One day, the leg pain while meditating was unbearable, but I continued, and after a while, they no longer hurt. It seemed that the bones in my legs were gone, I felt that my legs were soft and comfortable, and my whole body felt wonderful. Dafa is really amazing.
Master Purifies My Body
I diligently studied the Fa and did the exercises every day after I obtained the Fa. Without realizing it, I recovered from all my illnesses. The breast lumps disappeared, my menstruation returned to normal, the pain in my lower back stopped, and so on.
When Master cured my stomach cramps, my stomach hurt a lot all night. The next day I went to work and vomited green liquid. It was raining heavily when it was time to go home after work. I felt uncomfortable, but I rode my bike home anyway.
My mother was worried. I said, “I'm fine. I'll get well in a while.” I read Essentials for Further Advancement.Even before I finished reading that book, all symptoms were gone. My mother said, “It's so miraculous!” I told her, “Master has accepted my tribulations for me. Dafa is omnipotent as long as one believes in Master and the Fa. Practitioners don't have illnesses.”
A colleague and I once loaded a total of 6,400 bricks on two trucks. When I loaded the second truck, I felt a little uncomfortable. I didn't take it seriously. I could hardly walk home after loading the bricks. I wanted to sit down and take a break upon entering my neighborhood. At this time I said to myself, “No, I am a cultivator, I have Master. Master always protects and helps me. So I can walk home.” My home is on the second floor, and I went straight up without resting. The next day, I recovered and felt fresh and energetic.
Some practitioners and I went to the provincial capital to clarify the truth about Dafa on July 20, 1999, when the persecution had just started. Thereafter, the police and street officers often visited me at home and harassed me. But I was not afraid. When they came to my home, I talked about the improvement of my health after obtaining the Fa. I clarified the facts to people wherever I went.
I cooperated with other practitioners. Two of us distributed Dafa truth-clarification materials and hung up banners. We made most of the truth-clarification materials and banners ourselves. Our goal was to let people know that Dafa is good. I was always full of energy.
My husband suffered a sudden cerebral hemorrhage in 2008. In the hospital, I clarified the truth to people whenever I got an opportunity. But little by little, I slacked off unknowingly, and I couldn't keep up with the Fa study and practice.
My husband died in 2010, and I collapsed. I went to practitioners crying and asked them to study the Fa with me. I looked inward and asked myself, “Did I really cultivate diligently? Have I put down all kinds of attachments? How much fame, profit, and affection can I let go?” I seemed to be quite diligent, but I actually needed to improve my xinxing and cultivate. I regretted that I had not cultivated myself well after realizing how much I needed to improve.
I established a materials production site with help from other practitioners. Later, a practitioner was arrested. The police tried to find my home and arrest me, but they either could not find it or went to the wrong door. This was what the state security team head told me later. Once, when I was on the balcony, I saw them approaching. I then heard them ring the doorbell of my neighbor and said, “No one is home.” They didn't come back. I am glad I am following Master and doing what I am supposed to do.
