Experiencing the Power of Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a 50-year-old female practitioner from a rural area in China. Over the past 20 years, I have faced the persecution of Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), prejudice against practitioners from people who’ve been influenced by the Party propaganda, misunderstandings from my relatives, and pressure from society.
It has been righteous thoughts, a firm belief in Dafa, and Master Li's omnipresent compassion and protection that have kept me diligent on my cultivation path.
Broken Incisor Regrew in a Few Hours
My son took me shopping on his motorcycle in 2018 and we hit a pothole. I was thrown off the bike, breaking one of my incisors when I hit the ground. My mouth filled with blood, and we rushed home.
When my daughter-in-law saw me, she was worried. She told me to rest and that she would do the cooking for the next few days. She asked me to eat and wanted to take me to the hospital. I told her not to worry, although there was no way I could eat anything.
I went to my room. When I thought about my plans to go out toclarify the truth with other practitioners that afternoon, I calmed down and searched inward to find where I’d gone wrong. I remembered that I had said something that a cultivator should not say. It was taken advantage of by the old forces, which led to this hardship.
I told myself, “I am a practitioner. Everything is up to Master. My mission as a practitioner is to save people—no one can interfere!”
With this in mind, I gathered some Dafa informational materials and went out. When I came home, I found that my daughter-in-law was still worried and had been out looking for me. I showed her that my tooth was now fine. She witnessed the power of Dafa.
Sprained Ankle Recovered Overnight
Another time, I went out to distribute Dafa materials and sprained my ankle. The other practitioner asked if I was ok and whether I’d be able to keep going.
I sent a righteous thought in my mind: “Wherever we go, let all the evil factors that interfere with the salvation of sentient beings be disintegrated!” We are protected by Master, and it is the great virtue of Dafa that makes our achievements possible. All we need is righteous faith in Master and Dafa.
On the way home, other practitioners noted that our plans for that day had almost been aborted because of interference. I remembered my sprained ankle. I pressed it to see if it still hurt. After this small doubt in my mind, I couldn't move it when I tried to get out of the car.
My son got worried when he saw my swollen ankle. He wrapped a couple of ice cubes in a towel and asked me to put it on the swollen area. He stayed by my bed and said he would get my little granddaughter to watch me overnight.
It was almost time to send righteous thoughts so I said to him, “Don't worry. I am protected by Master, so there is no need for ice.” Realizing that I would not use it, he left.
The next morning, he came over to see how about my ankle. I told him that I had recovered. He was relieved when he saw that the swelling was down. Two days later I rejoined our group to help people learn the truth about Dafa.
Keeping Promises Shows that Dafa Is Good
During the cold winter weather, there are fewer people on the streets. On a very windy afternoon, a practitioner and I circled around but didn't meet anyone.
The other practitioner said that she had to buy a winter coat. I said I would go with her, because there were so few people out on such a cold day. She tried on a coat and liked it but there was a minor defect. She asked if there was another one like it. The store owner had to order the coat in and said, “If you really want to buy it, you can make a deposit now and pick it up tomorrow afternoon.”
My fellow practitioner then told him about Dafa: “We are cultivators who follow Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. If the coat arrives tomorrow, I will definitely buy it.”
She gave him a desk calendar with information about Dafa on it and talked to him further. Before leaving, we gave him the books Blessings from God and Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.
He thanked us and did not ask for a deposit. Because we did not buy clothes often, we did not pay much attention to the surrounding stores. The next day when we went again, we saw several nearby stores displaying similar coats at much cheaper prices.
We thought, “Should we go back to the same place?” We decided if we did not go back, what would the people who work in that shop think about us cultivators and about Dafa?
Helping people learn the truth about Dafa is our goal. So we went back to the same store. The man from yesterday was busy, so his sister, a lady in her 30s, was in charge. He had told her, “If they do come tomorrow, you'd better believe they were telling the truth.” She said, “I didn't expect you to really come!” She happily accepted a calendar and quit the CCP and its youth organizations. She also offered a discount.
Our every action, every move, and every word are living testimonies in the validation of Dafa and have a great impact when it comes to saving people.
A Dental Director Understands the Truth about Dafa
Practitioner Amy wanted to have her teeth fixed. She’d lost almost all her teeth and had been wearing dentures before practicing Dafa. Her dentures had become loose so she went to a private hospital to get a new set.
While Amy was discussing her dental symptoms with the director of the department, I was telling other patients about Dafa. Although I kept my voice low, the director probably heard everything. We helped him quit the CCP and put a calendar on his desk.
I gave him a copy of The Ultimate Goal of Communism and told him, “If you understand this book, you will be blessed.”
A few days later Amy went back to have an impression made, and I had some of my bad teeth removed. The dentist said, “If you want to get that cavity you have filled, please come back in a month.”
A month later, I revisited the hospital with another practitioner. After the cavity was filled, the director asked me to come back in a week for a crown. He said I could pay the next time. While I was getting money out of my purse, I asked him jokingly, “Aren't you afraid I won't come back?” He said, “You’re not like everyone else.”
The new denture wasn’t very comfortable, so I called back into the clinic. It was almost closing time and there weren't many patients. The dentist was standing by the counter and before I said anything, he asked, “Is there anything bothering you? Let me make an adjustment for you.”
He fixed the spot I pointed to. Just then, the director of the dental department approached me, made a polite Buddhist gesture, and said solemnly, “Dafa is good!”
At a time when people who support Dafa practitioners risk persecution, this sudden heroic feat by the director stunned the dentist. It also deeply shocked me, and I felt very grateful. It was because he really understood the truth that he had the courage to openly acknowledge Dafa.
Because he never interfered with us when we told people the truth about Dafa in his small hospital, five or six doctors, a janitor, and some of the patients learned the truth about Dafa. He, in return, has been blessed. Many patients prefer to visit him and his business is booming.
As Master said:
“When people show the appropriate respect and reverence toward Dafa as it manifests here in this world, they, their race, or their nation will enjoy blessings or honor. It was Dafa—the Great Way of the universe—that created the cosmic body, the universe, life, and all of creation. Any life that turns away from Dafa is truly corrupt. Any person who can align with Dafa is truly a good person, and will be rewarded and blessed with health and happiness.” (On Dafa, Zhuan Falun)
