(Minghui.org) As the coronavirus outbreak ravages China and the rest of the world, many Falun Dafa practitioners have been encouraging people to recite two phrases, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” in order to stay safe amidst the epidemic.

Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is a mind-body practice based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Many practitioners have experienced the miraculous healing power of the practice by following its principles and doing its five sets of gentle meditative exercises. Even those who do not practice Falun Dafa have seen their health restored simply by reciting the two phrases.

I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and I have been urging people around me to say the phrases, especially since the coronavirus outbreak began. Below are two such stories.

My Relative Recovered from Oral Cancer

I have a relative who lives in a mountainous region. I don't visit his family often, as it is rather inconvenient to get there due to poor transportation infrastructure.

Each time I saw him, however, I told him to remember “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told him and his family members to recite the two phrases as often as they could.

He got sick last year, and was diagnosed with oral cancer. I called him in early December to send my good wishes. He told me he had recovered and was well again.

I could hear that his voice was loud and clear. I didn't stay on the phone for long at the time as I had things to do at hand, but I called him again two days ago and he told me how he recovered.

He visited three hospitals in a bigger city, but none was helpful. The first two hospitals said that he had oral cancer without running tests, and each demanded a deposit of 120,000 yuan before surgery could be scheduled. He declined and turned to the third hospital, which charged him more than 7,000 yuan to lower his cholesterol level but didn't treat his oral cancer.

“I suffered a lot in those two months,” he told me, “I couldn't open my mouth and it was very painful to eat anything.”

“Didn't you remember to recite the two phrases I told you to recite?” I asked him.

He said, “I did when I remembered them, and then I felt better and better.”

Indeed, when he was talking to me on the phone, his voice was loud and clear, even better than when I called him in December. I told him to keep reciting the two phrases and to tell his loved ones and people around him to do the same. He said he would.

My Colleague Passed an Important Message to Her Cousin

I went to work yesterday and had a chat with a female colleague who had recently returned from her hometown in Sichuan Province. She talked about the inconveniences resulting from the lockdown and temperature checks.

I said, “Those who do temperature checks are also in great danger. There are so many people coming and going. The situation in some areas is really frightening. When one person is infected, all those around him/her have to be put in quarantine.”

She concurred, and told me that her cousin's husband, a government employee tasked with checking coworkers' temperatures every day, didn't dare to go home in the evening for fear of infecting his wife, and had to stay in a hotel.

“Have you heard about the two precious phrases, 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good'?” I asked my colleague.

She said she had heard about the phrases before but didn't believe in them.

I told her that saying the phrases would not bring her any harm even if she didn't believe in their healing power. On the contrary, it would give her one more choice to stay safe amidst the epidemic, especially given that many people have recovered from the virus by saying the phrases.

She agreed that it would cost nothing to say the phrases and it wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

Not long after, I heard her talking on the phone. I thought she must be calling her cousin in Sichuan, as they were speaking in the local dialect which I didn't quite understand. But I heard the words “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She must have been telling her cousin to tell her husband to recite the two precious phrases.

“You really care about your cousin!” I said to her after she hung up.

She smiled at me knowingly.
