Getting to Know Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a family member of a Dafa practitioner. I have only practiced Dafa for a month.
In my daily interactions with my wife, I could feel the beauty of Dafa from her words and actions, and could see the great mental and physical changes of a Dafa practitioner. I had to admit Dafa is amazing.
My wife suffered lumbar disc herniation, stomach pains and frequent colds in her early years, and when her back pain recurred, she could not get out of bed for several months. She had been to countless hospitals and private clinics, and suffered a lot of pain and trouble during treatments, not to mention the amount of money spent.
But she was still sick. Her back still hurt, her stomach still ached, and she still frequently had colds and flu. For years, her poor health had made her life miserable.
However, after practicing Falun Dafa, she recovered from her lumbar disc herniation, her stomach pains disappeared, and even the frequent colds were gone.
My mother-in-law was a walking medicine cabinet for decades. She had heart disease, high blood pressure, and cerebellar atrophy, and spent her days on medication.
After a hospitalization in 2018, she began listening to the recordings of Master Li’s lectures in Guangzhou. After a period of time, all her problems, including heart disease and high blood pressure, were gone.
On the afternoon of October 14, 2020, I was attacked by a severe stomach pain. I rolled around, hit my head against the wall, and even crawled on the floor, wailing uncontrollably. The pain went on for more than four hours without any relief.
My wife said, “You are convinced of the power of Dafa and know Dafa’s beauty, but you won’t practice. Now that the test has come, please sincerely ask Master to save you. You should truly believe in Master, sincerely repeat ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ and follow Master’s arrangements in everything.”
I nodded and began to chant “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” sincerely and begged Master Li to save me. After about half an hour, my stomach began to feel better and the pain started fading.
My wife told me when my stomach pain peaked, a big area in my back was visibly dark. It was really a fight between life and death! I was extremely grateful to Master Li for saving my life.
When the pain became somehow bearable, I called an ambulance and was taken to the hospital, where I stayed for a week. The doctors couldn’t figure out anything wrong with me.
On November 4, I had chest pain and went for a checkup in another hospital. I was shocked to learn the diagnosis of an aortic coarctation anomaly which the local hospital was not able to treat.
On November 8, I was transferred to the cardiovascular department of Nanning Medical University Hospital, and the doctors there were going to perform an aortic stenting and cardiovascular bypass surgery when my condition became stabilized.
My wife’s sister brought me the recordings of Master’s Guangzhou lectures so I could listen to them in the hospital.
As soon as I listened to the lectures, I didn’t have any pain anymore. When I closed my eyes, I could clearly see several people listening to the lectures with me. I told my wife what I saw, and she burst into tears out of excitement!
On November 16, my surgery was completed successfully. The operation lasted only six or seven hours. I was transferred to the general ward after only 10 hours in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
For an operation of this magnitude, the patient is usually kept in the ICU for observation for several days or longer, which could be very expensive.
Even so, the surgery and hospitalization cost me more than 100,000 yuan ($15,300 USD). I felt so distressed because we didn’t have much money.
But my wife said, “Compared to your life, how can the money still be important? If not for Master’s protection, you would’ve lost your life. Look at mother, from her stubbornness in the old days to being free of illness today, isn’t it just an issue of conventional thinking? Do think about what you want to do after being discharged from the hospital.”
I was discharged on the 21st. I had lost thirty pounds during the several hospitalizations, and I was very weak.
Within a week after leaving the hospital, I gained almost a pound a day, and my complexion changed from pale to ruddy.
Now, it’s time for me to fulfill my promise to listen to the Fa and read Dafa books. Very soon, I will use my personal experience to validate the beauty of Dafa, and I will no longer waver.
I went through a long process from not knowing Dafa to getting to know Dafa and starting Dafa cultivation. I am determined to practice Dafa sincerely, assimilate to the principles of Dafa, spread Dafa, and be a true Dafa disciple just like my wife and sister-in-law.
