(Minghui.org) I am a 70-year-old woman living in the countryside. I started to practice Falun Dafa in 2002.
Before I took up the practice, I suffered all kinds of illnesses, such as neurosis and sciatica. I could not sleep at night due to unbearable pain in my legs and my arms; I was so weak that I could not even pick up a thermos of water. I also suffered frequent shock and loss of consciousness.
I developed a very grumpy temper due to the physical torment. When I lost my temper, I would overturn the table, smashing up everything on it. I scolded my husband at will, and my whole family was living in a mess.
After I started practicing Falun Dafa, not only did I regain good health, my temper also took a complete change.
Our neighbors commented, “The wife (referring to me) never did any house chores before she practiced Falun Dafa, and she always scolded the man (my husband); but it’s the reverse now, the wife does all the work and the man becomes idle, and he scolds the wife when he is unhappy, and the wife doesn’t even get angry. There won’t be any fight in this family now, and we don’t need to worry about them anymore.”
Obtaining the Fa in Beijing
In 2002, a relative in Beijing asked me to spend a few days with her. I didn’t want to go in the beginning due to my poor health. But she called me a number of times, so I agreed and went to Beijing to help her take care of an elderly relative in the hospital.
One day, I suffered shock all of a sudden. Luckily it happened in the hospital and I received emergency treatment in time. However, the hospital could not pinpoint the cause of my symptom. I didn’t want to cause more trouble for the relative, so I discharged myself from the hospital and went to say with my aunt, who was also living in Beijing at that time.
My aunt is a Falun Dafa practitioner. She gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun in the past, but I didn’t want to practice then, so my son took away the book.
My aunt encouraged me again to take up the practice, so I did a few exercise movements with her. I felt a strong energy field while learning the exercise movements.
Only half a day after I learned the exercises, the pain in my arms disappeared and I was able to lift a bucket of water with no problem! This was incredible! I was really excited and determined that I would practice Falun Dafa.
The first thing I did when I got back home was to ask my son for the book Zhuan Falun.
When I got the book back and started reading it, I felt that everything was so well said and explained. I felt deeply regretful that I had not read it earlier.
Falun Dafa Is a Buddha School Cultivation
Although I started to read the book and do the exercises, I wasn’t clear that Falun Dafa is more about spiritual cultivation than healing illnesses or keeping fit like other qigong practices. So even though I read Zhuan Falun every day, I did not pay much attention to letting go of my attachments in daily life. Sometimes, when someone called me to play mahjong, I would put down my book straight away and go to play with them.
One day, while I was reading Zhuan Falun, someone called me to play mahjong again. I closed the book and started to leave.
Just as I got to the bedroom door, I heard someone calling me, but there was no one in the room or in the courtyard. The sound seemed to be coming from the book. I went back in and picked up the book, then it was all quiet. I thought I must have had some sort of hallucination. So I went to play mahjong as usual.
Later, I contacted local practitioners and shared with them. I understood that as a Falun Dafa practitioner, I should let go of attachments for entertainment and I should stop playing mahjong. I realized that Falun Dafa is a cultivation practice in the Buddha School, and the sound I heard was not a hallucination, but a warning to stop me from playing mahjong. Since then I have given up my bad habit of mahjong playing.
Master cleansed my body soon after I started practicing Falun Dafa. All my illnesses disappeared, including the annoying presbyopia, and I can do all sorts of house chores.
Once a fellow practitioner gave me a copy of Master’s portrait. I was so happy and put it up on the wall. I also placed an incense burner on the table and started to burn incense every day to show my respect to Master.
One day, while I was burning incense, suddenly I saw a few big characters “Falun Buddha Fa” in the air. They were shining with golden radiance, floating gently from west to east, like in a movie. There also appeared the scenes in a heavenly paradise, with clearly visible palaces. Then I saw two crystal balls on the table, giving off colorful lights as they rotated.
I looked up and saw Master smiling at me. I felt extremely excited as I knew that Master was encouraging me to cherish the opportunity and to be more diligent in cultivation.
Premature Baby Saved
I had another miraculous experience. It was on a summer evening in 2019. Suddenly I heard someone knocking on the door. It was a woman in my village. She told me anxiously that her grandson’s life was in grave danger and the hospital could not save him.
“My elder sister (a Dafa practitioner out of town) called me and told me to come to you, and see if Falun Dafa could save this baby,” she said eagerly. “I would do whatever you tell me to do.”
As it turned out her grandson was born prematurely with congenital tracheal stenosis, and he stopped breathing frequently.
“Do you believe in Falun Dafa?” I asked.
“Yes, I do. All my family members do,” she replied.
I went to her house with her and saw the whole family was at the side of the little baby boy, who kept his little mouth open, with heavy breathing.
“Now, all of you, please recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ with all sincerity from your heart,” I said to everyone in the house. “You need to recite these two phrases as often as you can and play Master Li’s Fa-teaching recordings to the little baby.”
I went to their house again the next day, and as soon as I stepped inside the door, the baby’s mom greeted me happily, “The baby is well now. He got better at around 3 a.m. He can close his mouth now and breathe normally!” I felt so happy for the family.
I went to their home again a few days later and saw the baby boy lying in bed playfully. He is very good-looking with two big shining eyes, a very adorable baby.
Master saved his life, and the whole family is extremely grateful to Master for his compassion.
The boy is now chubby and healthy. When people asked how he survived, his family members would tell them, “He was cured by Falun Dafa’s Master!”
People in Our Local Area All Know Falun Dafa Is Good
I often tell people about the facts of Falun Dafa in public places and distribute truth-clarification materials, without holding any fear.
Oftentimes, I would ride a bicycle to the local market, with a bag of Minghui Weekly. I would carry a stack of the periodicals in my left arm and hold up a copy in my right hand before I started talking loudly, “Listen to me, fellow villagers. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will soon come to an end because heaven is about to destroy it. Hurry up and quit the CCP, the Communist Youth League, and the Young Pioneers! You will be safe if you quit them. These are Minghui Weekly, come and get a copy for yourself!”
When people came to get the periodical, I would help them do the three withdrawals.
Each time when the New Year was coming, I would distribute the beautiful desk calendars with Dafa information at the market. People were very keen to get one.
By and by, local people got to know me, and I didn’t even need to say anything. They just came to take the materials themselves.
However, gradually, I developed an attachment to zealotry and didn’t pay much attention to safety anymore.
One day, as soon as I arrived at the market, the CCP secretary of the local village tried to drive me away. I changed locations, but he followed me over, and slapped me in the face a few times, saying he would call the police.
I took off on my electric bicycle as fast as I could, and as soon as I left the village, I fell into a ditch by the road.
I started looking within when I got home and realized that I was being too careless. Apart from talking too loudly at the market, I often talked to people and distributed materials near the secretary’s office. This would cause much pressure for him and make it difficult for him not to do anything, especially when CCP officials are ordered to carry out the persecution policy. Master told us to always be considerate of others, but I did not do well. I should not be too close to the village office when I clarified the truth so loudly in a public place.
I went to the market again after skipping two market dates. The CCP secretary saw me and called me to a quiet lane, “I was wrong to hit you last time,” he apologized, “But could you not talk the way you did? Could you save me a bit of face?”
“No problem,” I replied and went back to the market.
Later, someone told me that the secretary started to have pain in his arm after he hit me and he was worried that he was suffering retribution for slapping me in the face, and that’s why he apologized to me.
Nowadays, when people saw me on the market, they often shouted out, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
At the beginning of December 2020, all the people in my village, men and women, old and young, were called to a small square to do the coronavirus test.
I thought it would be a very good opportunity to clarify the truth to people. So I asked Master to strengthen me and I went to the square with informational materials.
There are more than 3,000 people in our village. That day, tables were placed on both east and west sides of the square and people lined up for the test.
After I was tested on the east side, I spoke loudly to the villagers, “Please listen to me, folks! Yes, we need to prevent the virus infection, but there have been cases of people being infected and deceased. I’ve got a secret recipe, which is to recite: ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ If you keep doing this with due sincerity, the virus would stay away from you.”
The villagers who heard me all smiled and responded, “Yes, we often do that. Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
After I finished on the east side, I went to the west side of the square and told people the same. The village cadres all smiled quietly and none of them said anything. After that, I started distributing truth-clarification materials and amulets.
“You Can Put Up Falun Gong Posters Anywhere In the Hospital”
One summer, I went to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa in another village. As there were not many people on the street, I went into a local hospital, thinking there would be more people there. I told some people there that if they kept reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ sincerely, they would recover quicker.
Just then, the hospital director came over, and to my great surprise, he said, “Keep talking. I have been to Hong Kong and seen people practicing Falun Dafa freely on the street. There are also some construction workers in the courtyard. You can go and help them quit the CCP organizations too.”
That day, I helped 29 people quit the CCP organizations in the hospital, including doctors, nurses, patients, and construction workers.
I said to the hospital director happily, “You will be blessed in the future!”
“I have already been blessed,” he said.
As it turned out, when the area was hit by a severe storm a while ago, most greenhouse covers of the local residents were blown away, but the greenhouse at the hospital remained intact. He was really surprised and went out to take a look around.
He saw two slogans “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” on the two poles on each side of the hospital gate. He realized that the hospital was protected by Falun Dafa’s Master.
“You are welcome at my hospital anytime and you can put up Falun Dafa posters anywhere you like in the hospital,” the director said.
I did go to the hospital a few more times later, and some doctors also started to practice Falun Dafa.
It’s been almost 20 years since I started cultivation in Falun Dafa. There are too many memories to recount. During this period, I was once unlawfully arrested, and my house was ransacked by police. People from the CCP organizations also harassed me from time to time, but nothing could shake my faith in Master and Dafa.
My children also changed from feeling scared to being supportive of me, and they have all been blessed as a result. They are all living a prosperous life now. My family used to be considered a poor household in the village, but now we are one of the well-off ones.
Villagers say that all this happened because I practice Dafa and we are protected by gods! I know in my heart that all this is given to us by Master because I am a Dafa practitioner.
