(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Gong in 1996, and since then, not only me, but my family have benefited from this traditional mind-body practice based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I would like to share how Master Li, the founder of Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, has saved me and family from danger. 

My Apartment Was Saved

One day, after lighting incense in front of Master Li's portrait, I went to my mother’s house. Coming back a few hours later, I noticed that my apartment was full of smoke. I looked everywhere but could not find where the smoke was coming from. 

In the living room, I saw that the plastic vase on the table was completely melted, with the flowers scattered on the sofa next to the table. Master's portrait, which had been hanging on the wall, had fallen, but was intact. There were two big holes in the sofa, one at the back corner, and the other on the backrest. The leather cover and the stuffing were all burnt but not the wood frame. The lighter, which I'd used to light the incense and likely forgot to switch off, was also burned. 

I was so scared when I saw the situation—if the wooden sofa frame had caught fire, the entire apartment could have burned down! 

I Was Not Injured

I was cooking dinner one day, with porridge cooking in the pressure cooker on the stove next to me. All of a sudden, the pressure cooker's gasket gave out, and steaming hot porridge splattered onto my face and body, and all over the kitchen. After taking a shower, however, I was completely fine without any burns although the kitchen wall was still hot where the porridge had hit it. We had no doubt that Master Li had protected me. 

Falun Gong Teaches Me to Be a Good Person

Before retiring, my mother-in-law was the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) secretary for her work unit for 16 years. When she was hospitalized, my husband and I went to the hospital to take care of her. She had not been able to have a bowel movement for several days, and was very miserable, so I pulled the stool out for her by hand. She felt so much better afterwards, and said that my mother had raised a kind-hearted daughter for her. I replied that being the youngest child in my family, I had been badly spoiled by my mother, but it was Master Li who had taught me to be a considerate person. 

I told her that she would feel better if she repeated the two phrases, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She began to recite the two phrases sincerely, and even added, "Master Li is good!" She had been on blood pressure medication for more than ten years. Not long after she began to repeat the two phrases, her blood pressure became normal and she no longer needed the medicines. The hypertension that she'd suffered for over ten years was cured.
