Centenarian: “Falun Dafa Is Indeed Good”
(Minghui.org) There is a 102-year-old man in our village. We all call him “Mr. Li.”
Mr. Li used to visit temples with other people in the village. However, after a while, he saw that those people who prayed to Buddha only acted nicely when they were in the temples, but would curse people with foul language or take advantage of others in their daily life. He didn't think that was good, so he stopped going to temples.
After the communist regime launched the persecution of Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, Mr. Li often received pamphlets from the practitioners and liked to read them. He learned that Falun Dafa’s principles are Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance, and that Falun Dafa practitioners are following these principles to become good people. He read all the Dafa materials he had and saved them.
Whenever Mr. Li saw me, he was always happy and said, “Falun Dafa is indeed good. Master Li Hongzhi comes from Heaven. He is here to save people with Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.”
In July 2000, Mr. Li broke a thermos bottle and his feet were scalded by the hot water. The water was so hot that his feet immediately had blisters. His daughter-in-law took off his shoes and saw that his skin was peeling off. She applied burn medicine, but it caused so much pain that he rubbed off the medicine and kept his feet naked.
Strangely, the pain faded away quickly without the medicine and he fully recovered within a month.
Another thing happened in March 2001. Mr. Li's arm was accidentally dislocated. His son applied medicine to the joint but it only made the pain worse. Once again, Mr. Li threw away the medicine and his arm recovered a few months later without any further treatment.
On the morning of August 15, 2013, Mr. Li was walking along a street when a van hit him from behind. He fell unconscious and was sent to the hospital by the driver.
After he woke up, he told the driver that he wanted to go home. The driver only drove him half way and told him to walk back himself. And he did walk back by himself.
I saw him on my way back home one day and noticed the bruise on his left eye. He told me he was involved in a car accident. But he said he was fine because he was wearing the Falun Dafa amulet all the time.
My Own Story
I am over 70 years old. I had many diseases before practicing Falun Dafa. I couldn't work at all. Because of my poor health, my temper was bad too. I couldn't stop fighting with my family.
However, things changed after I took up Falun Dafa in 1996. In three months, all my diseases were gone without any treatment. I got along with my family again and also resumed work.
In 2000, I was forcibly sent to a detention center because I went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. I was detained in a room with many young women who were forced to do labor. I wanted to help them, so I tried to put on my glasses. However, they were broken. I thought: “Master, does this mean that I do not need glasses any more?” Amazingly, immediately I could see everything clearly. I have not needed glasses since then.
During the summer of 2012, when I was constructing a hen house, suddenly my back felt very uncomfortable. I went into a room to check and found that there were many extremely itchy bumps around my waist and on my legs. The bumps were white on top and red on the bottom, piled up here and there. This disease, known as herpes zoster, can be very severe.
However, I was not scared. I ignored it and simply did what I was supposed to do every day. I cooked three meals a day, and transferred bricks and sand for the hen house. I studied Dafa books and did Dafa exercises every night. Half a month later, when the construction was almost done, all of the bumps were gone.
