Experiencing the Power of Dafa: Master Led Me to the Path of Cultivation
(Minghui.org) I was illiterate and had very little education when I was young. But through Fa study, Master showed me how to read, and now I can read all of the Falun Dafa books. I am now 81 years old.
The power of Dafa also manifested in my health. I was blind in my left eye for more than 50 years but regained sight in it after practicing Dafa.
Guided in the Right Direction
I used to practice a type of qigong with people in my home.
One morning, I was half awake and saw a huge Buddha wearing a yellow kasaya descending from the sky. He paused in the air and said to me, “You need to find so-and-so. He lives north of the big market.” He let me see where the person lived and then disappeared.
I got dressed, jumped on my bicycle, and rode to the place the Buddha had shown me.
It seemed to be the right place, but I wasn’t sure exactly where to find the person. A young woman was opening up a store across the street, so I went over and asked her if she knew where so-and-so lived. She told me that the person was meditating in the back and guided me through the store.
When I entered the room, I saw a man meditating and a portrait on the wall. I couldn’t help but ask, “Isn’t that the Buddha who got me to come see you?”
The man told me the person in the portrait was Master Li Hongzhi. As soon as I heard the name, I knelt down and kowtowed to Master.
Master cleaned up my body soon after I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996, and my asthma and rheumatoid arthritis disappeared.
I had lost the sight in my left eye at the age of seven and been blind in that eye for over 50 years. But only a few days after I started practicing Dafa, my sight was restored, with crystal clear vision.
My sister didn't believe me when I told her, so she covered my right eye with a towel and asked me questions about what I could see. Each time I answered correctly. I even threaded a needle in front of her with my right eye shut. She was dumb-founded, and said, “Wow, you really can see.”
That made her decide to practice Falun Dafa, too.
As my xinxing improved, I was able to float up in the air. Sitting on my bed or on a mat in the living room, I could float up and circle around the room.
I wasn’t sure why I was able to do this, and when a new practitioner told me that I might be following a deviant path, I became very frightened.
The floating stopped when Master locked this supernatural capability for me, but I still felt very light when I walked. Younger people had a hard time keeping up with me. When I rode my bicycle, it was as if someone was pushing me from behind.
Once, when Master was cleansing my body, I had to stop a few times on my way home to vomit blood. Before I got there, I said to Master, “Master, please help me stop vomiting. I'm afraid that if people at home see me doing this they won't understand why it's happening.”
The vomiting stopped right away, as I felt a warm current go through my entire body, starting at the top of my head.
Master Guides and Protects Us
When I learned that no practitioners were distributing Dafa informational materials in two nearby cities, another practitioner and I decided to do it. Each day we carried large bags loaded with materials and went down one street after another, delivering materials to each household.
We did this for almost six years and only stopped when the local practitioners started to get involved.
We didn’t have a local material production site at the time, so to get materials I often carried a box of brochures to the township for practitioners in our county and rural areas to use.
During those years, we often went out when it was dark to distribute materials. I was riding a bicycle one night in the countryside, when my bike suddenly stopped on its own. The road ahead of me lit up, and I saw a river right in front of me. Master protected me from heading straight into it.
Another time, I went to a village about 30 miles from my home with another practitioner. After I finished delivering materials, I went to the agreed place by the roadside to meet her. I had to wait for a while before she finally showed up. She said, “I got lost and couldn’t find you. Then I saw a Falun spinning over this area, so I decided to follow it. Then I saw you.”
Because I often went to the township to hand out brochures and clarify the facts, many cab drivers got to know me. As soon as they saw me, they would ask me for brochures.
Helping the Police
Shortly after going out to distribute materials in the spring of 2017, I was arrested by the police.
Three officers were staring at me in the police station. I began to send righteous thoughts to eliminate the old force factors that were controlling them in other dimensions and to awaken their conscience.
I said to them, “I have DVDs in my handbag. Please feel free to look at them.”
They watched three of the DVDs, one after the other, until dawn. When other police officers arrived in the morning I gave DVDs and brochures to each of them as well. I suggested they take them home to let their family members watch or read them. They took everything I had.
At about 9:00 a.m. a police officer said, “Please get ready to go home. Your son should be here soon to collect you.”
Sure enough, my son showed up and took me home.
I am a villager without a pension and no other income. My children give me money each month to pay the bills. I only spend a fraction of what they give me on myself and give the rest to help support the local material production site.
My children all believe that Dafa is wonderful, and they support me in my cultivation. In turn, they have received good fortune in the form of decent jobs.
