(Minghui.org) I have benefited both physically and mentally from practicing Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa). I've also witnessed the many blessings that people receive when they correctly understand the practice. Below I share two examples.

One day in the spring of 2007, I drove to my sister's house to help her and a male friend plant some trees.

While I was working, I talked to him about how Falun Dafa is being persecuted in China and how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) fabricated the Tiananmen self-immolation hoax in order to defame the spiritual discipline.

I also spoke about a 270-million-year-old stone that was discovered in June 2002 in Guizhou Province, China. A crack that had formed 500 years ago in the megalith revealed six neatly arranged Chinese characters that read, “The Chinese Communist Party perishes.”

When I explained why people should quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, he asked me to help him quit the Communist Youth League, which he had joined when he was young.

Shortly after, a friend of his stopped by to visit. When the topic of Falun Gong came up, his friend started slandering the practice. My sister's friend immediately stopped him saying, “You don't know the real story behind Falun Dafa, so stop talking nonsense!”

My sister's friend was single at the time. By the end of the year, however, someone introduced him to a very kind lady. Not long after, they began dating, got engaged, and married two years later. Every time he sees me, he greets me with a big smile on his face!

One late evening in 2018, my doorbell rang. As I pressed the intercom button to ask who it was, a man hurriedly said, “My name is Xiao Hou. Your brother was just hit by a car. Please hurry down and bring some money with you!”

When I asked, “How badly is he hurt?” he replied, “It's hard to tell because he's covered in blood!”

I immediately called my sister—who lives in the same residential complex as I do—then ran to the waiting car outside. When I opened the car door, I was shocked! My brother looked like he had just been in a war zone!

Several minutes later, my sister arrived. When she opened the car door and saw our brother, she screamed and stumbled backwards. I got out of the car and tried to comfort her, saying, “He’s conscious. He'll be okay. We need to get him to the hospital as quickly as possible and ask Master Li [the founder of Falun Gong] for help!”

When we arrived at the hospital, he was whisked into an examination room. Hours later, we were told that although he had not suffered any broken bones or internal injuries, he did sustain deep lacerations to his nose, face, skull, and ears, requiring more than 100 stitches.

The next morning, my brother was transferred to a regular hospital room. When we saw him, he told us what had happened.

“I was riding my electric bicycle home at night when a taxi suddenly hit me from behind, knocking me into the air.

“As I landed on the hood of the car, my head hit the windshield and I blacked out.

“Instead of slowing down, the driver sped up, making me roll off the hood and onto my damaged bike, which was in front of the taxi.

“A second later, I came to and instinctively grabbed the front bumper of the taxi. As the vehicle came at me for another eight or nine meters, I thought, ‘This guy is trying to run me over!’”

The next day, I went to the local police station to file an accident report. The officers I spoke to were surprised that my brother was still alive.

When he was discharged 11 days later, he decided not to press charges against the driver. He also accepted the small settlement amount that the insurance company offered him, even though it did not cover $275 worth of medicine that he needed.

Instead of asking the driver to pay this extra amount, my brother paid it out of his own pocket. When a friend volunteered to help him get a handicap parking permit, he respectfully declined.

If you looked at my brother today, it’s impossible to tell that he was involved in a near-fatal wreck! His whole family is very grateful to Master Li for saving him!

I hope that people understand the truth about Falun Gong and sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truth, Compassion, Forbearance is good.” Doing this will bring them untold blessings!
