Child with Cerebral Palsy Benefits from Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) An elderly woman came to my school in the spring of 2016. Her nine-year-old grandson wanted to attend school, but the boy was born two months premature and had severe cerebral palsy. He was unable to control his bowels or feed himself. The family went to every school in town, private and public, and none of them accepted him. “Will you accept him?” the grandmother asked.
I am the owner of my school. As a Falun Dafa practitioner, I know the limitless power of Dafa, and I believed Dafa could save the child. I accepted him on the spot.
The First Days
The boy arrived in a wheelchair. He was a nice-looking child and had the body of a six-year-old. His legs were stiff and crossed. He could not stand and was unable to hold a pencil.
He could not read but he listened attentively. That was how he learned. I taught him the phrases: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He repeated them out loud.
By day four, positive changes in the boy were apparent. On the first day, when he said that he needed to use the toilet, he had already gone in his pants. Just a few days later, he was able to wait until we got him to the bathroom. People were amazed.
Gradually, he was able to walk up and down four flights of stairs while holding onto the railing. His family’s flat was on the fourth floor.
Changes in the Boy’s Grandmother
Initially, the grandmother did not have a good opinion of Falun Dafa and Falun Dafa practitioners. After witnessing her grandson’s improvements just by saying, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” she also started practicing Falun Dafa. Many of her chronic aches and pains went away. She was illiterate but learned how to read using the book Zhuan Falun. She often said with awe: “Falun Dafa is amazing.”
Changes in the Boy
The boy became a happier child. He spent less and less time in the hospital and was weaned off daily medications. As he grew taller and stronger, he was able to write and could feed himself. He gained control of his bladder and bowels. With support, he could even walk a few steps.
He could not do any of the Falun Dafa exercises nor send righteous thoughts. However, he was able to manage sickness karma elimination. One time, his grandmother brought him to my home because he was covered in a red rash. He recovered in three days. Another time, he had a fever for four days. Every time he persevered through sickness karma, he became healthier.
When Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) practitioners filed a lawsuit against Jiang Zemin [the Chinese leader who initiated the persecution of Falun Gong], he wanted to put his name on the letter and be part of it.
Changes in the Boy’s Family
The boy’s grandfather started practicing Falun Dafa in February 2019. The elderly man soon stopped needing daily insulin injections and became a diligent practitioner.
The boy’s parents used to be against Falun Gong because they believed in the communist government's propaganda. They became supportive of Falun Gong and practitioners after seeing the changes in their son and his grandparents. The father said: “Look at my son now. He doesn't take any medication.” In fact, the boy has not taken any medication for the past three years.
The boy learned over 5,000 characters while attending my school. He memorized several classical Chinese texts—some over 50,000 words long. After spending three years at my school, his intellect progressed from that of a three-year-old to that of a nine-year-old.
He left our school in the winter of 2019. Two of his classmates helped him walk to the car. My mission was completed. Both of his grandparents are now practitioners. I trust they will be able to guide him to continue his cultivation.
