(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. More and more people among my family and extended family, friends, classmates, colleagues, neighbors and students have learned that Falun Dafa is good, and witnessed the power of Dafa.
Story about My Cousin Who Is 96 Years Old
One of my extended cousins is 96 years old. He joined the military of the Kunmingtang to fight against the Japanese. He was labeled as a counter-revolutionary in 1957 and was monitored and forced to work as a laborer. He listened to everyone, and didn’t dare to speak or do things of his own will. He decided not to believe in Gods or Buddhas.
His brother invited a gongs and drums team to play at his mother’s funeral ceremony. He didn’t allow them to play because he thought it was superstitious and not in line with the government’s regulations.
I went back to my hometown in 2006 and learned that his wife had suffered a concussion when getting in a fight with people. She had gone through various treatments but didn’t get any better. I told her that she would recover if she repeated “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day. Besides, I gave her a Falun Dafa amulet, but asked her not to tell my cousin about this.
My cousin called me two months later. He said, “The thing you gave to my wife is more effective than medicine. What’s going on there? Please give me one. My body itches all over.” I sent a “Falun Dafa is good” amulet and some Dafa truth-clarification materials to him. He wore the amulet every day and recited “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” with his wife.
I visited him in 2009. He said, “I originally didn’t believe in spirits or Gods. My wife didn’t get any better, even though she was on medication for two years. But. after you gave her the amulet, she no longer comes down with headaches, even though she doesn't take any medicine. My body no longer itched after you gave me the amulet. Who is Falun Dafa’s Master? Are there Gods? Why does the government crack down on it? Your husband is a government official. Why does he dare let you practice Falun Dafa?” He asked many questions.
I told him whatever I knew about Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa. I asked him to think about why the CCP treats us so badly, where do we come from, why do the planets spin around the sun, and so on. He began to doubt atheism. He was not afraid to tell his wife’s brother how he and his wife benefited from Dafa. He asked him to read Zhuan Falun.
I visited him for his 90th birthday party in September 2015. He was suffering from gout and couldn’t sleep at night. His legs and feet were so swollen, he was unable to put his shoes on. He used a wheelchair even at home. I let him listen to Master’s audio lectures. He listened until 3 a.m. the next day and his legs and feet were back to normal.
He walked to the hotel by himself to attend the birthday party. He told his relatives and villagers, “I have to believe it, since I experienced it myself.”
He fell in front of his home at the end of the year. His legs were swollen, and he couldn’t even go for a walk. He asked my sister, also a practitioner, about his accident and explained that he doubted what we told him about Dafa: “Didn’t you say that I would be protected? How come I fell down? I don’t believe it.”
I called him and said, “Cousin, did you break a bone? Your neighbor was only 73 years old. He fell on the same place as you did. He has been in the hospital for half a year, can’t take care of himself, and has to be fed.”
He realized, “Oh, I am wrong. God has protected me!”
I said to him, “You have eliminated a huge amount of karma when you suffered. But you are still good and live on. Did Dafa's Master protect you or not?” He replied, “Okay, I understand. I will believe in Master from now on. I no longer have any doubt.”
It was 41 degrees Celsius in the summer of 2019 in my hometown. He went out for a walk in the community area. He had a fever and passed out when he returned home. His family members thought he would die this time. His wife sat on his bed and repeated “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” beside him all day. Two weeks later he could walk around. I had a video call with him on the Chinese New Year this year. He still recognized my husband. He is 96 years old.
My Classmate’s Life Extended
One of my classmates in middle school was an English teacher and well known locally. I didn’t see him when we had a class reunion in the spring of 2009. I was told that he suffered from rectal cancer and had surgery twice. The cancer metastasized to his liver and lungs. The doctor told his family that he wouldn't live more than three months.
I went to see him and said, “I retired before I was 55 due to illness. For decades I suffered from heart disease, chronic gastritis, low blood pressure, frequent dizziness, long-term insomnia, and arthritis. I was diagnosed with a blood disorder in my early 50's. None of my tests were normal. Someone had to take care of me. I retired early due to illness. I was introduced to Falun Dafa by a student’s parent in 1996. I became illness-free after I practiced Falun Dafa for a month.”
He asked me to buy an MP3 player and download Master’s lectures into it for him. He listened to it, became healthy, and lived a normal life. He asked his wife to make socks for me to express his thanks.
Regrettably he had poor enlightenment. He went out to play mahjong every day after he recovered and forgot how he got well. He didn’t do what he should do. He was hospitalized 3 years later, in November 2012, and passed away in 20 days.
He told his wife before he died, “You’d better thank my classmate. I have lived three more years and earned a lot of additional money for our family.” He also told his wife to practice Falun Dafa. Now his wife recites “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day.
“My Family Members and Relatives Are Now Convinced.”
There was an earthquake that registered a 7.0 on the Richter scale in the summer of 2012 in my hometown. My new neighbor was walking on the stairs, fell, and rolled down the stairs from the second floor. She suffered a lumbar compression fracture and was hospitalized for a month. Her husband had to take care of her.
I went to see her and told her, “If you believe in Falun Dafa’s Master, you’d better go home. I will read Zhuan Falun to you. I guarantee that you will recover quickly.” She replied, “Yes, I believe him! I practiced Falun Dafa for half a month before July 20, 1999. I gave up, given the objection by my family after the persecution started. I didn’t tell anyone about this.”
I started to read Zhuan Falun to her after she was discharged from the hospital, and when her husband went out to play mahjong because we were afraid he would oppose us. She was able to go to the toilet by holding onto the wall after I had spent two afternoons reading 150 pages. I finished reading the whole book in five and a half days. She told me, “I can walk freely at home. I can cook. My husband is very happy. My family members will come to see me tomorrow. You don’t need to come over to read for me.”
She started to practice Falun Dafa openly. Her husband and other family members no longer oppose her.
The father-in-law of my neighbor’s daughter was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer in the autumn of 2016. My neighbor asked me to help him. I clarified the truth about Falun Dafa to him and helped him withdraw from the CCP. I gave him the book Zhuan Falun and an MP3 player with downloaded files. He was discharged from the hospital. He listened to Master’s audio lectures or read Zhuan Falun all day long.
He passed away in the autumn of 2019 after he had been in the hospital for three weeks. The neighbor said to me, “The father-in-law’s family knows that Falun Dafa’s Master let him live three more years and save some money for them.”
My neighbor’s brother sustained a severe head injury in a car accident early this year. His family had prepared his funeral. My neighbor sat beside him reciting “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He came out of his coma a week later. My neighbor continued reciting those words to him. He was discharged from the hospital half a month later. He had fully recovered.
My neighbor said, “Many thanks to Master! My family and relatives are convinced this time.”
Mother of a Courier Recovered
One courier often helped us post Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials. We knew him very well. We even got acquainted with his mother. His mother fell outside her home and broke her leg. She text messaged me two days before the surgery and asked me to pray for her because she was afraid. I asked my husband to send her an audio file of Master’s lectures and advised her and her family to recite “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” sincerely.
She was able to get out of bed five days after the operation. Her daughter helped her to get up and walk. She was discharged several days later. The next day she came to my shop to see me. I asked her to continue listening to Master’s lectures. She completely recovered within one month.
Classmate Suffering Cancer Said, “I Am Very Well”
I received a call from a former classmate in the Normal College last August. He told me that he was diagnosed with laryngeal cancer a year ago, which had metastasized to his liver and lungs, and he was told he didn't have long to live. I had clarified the truth to him before. He had withdrawn from the CCP. He believed in Dafa and Master Li. He wanted to practice Falun Dafa but didn’t start because his family opposed it.
I sent the truth-clarification materials to him and told him to repeat “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He would get better.
I received his call one month later. He told me that he became better. He rang me twice afterwards and told me he was very well. I asked him to tell his story to his relatives so that they could benefit from Dafa as well.
I have practiced Falun Dafa for 25 years. My family members and relatives have benefited from Dafa a lot as well. Thank you, benevolent Master!
