(Minghui.org) I have been practicing Falun Dafa for 24 years. I would like to share some of the many miraculous things that have happened to me during this time to express my gratitude for the boundless grace of Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa.

I started practicing Dafa in the spring of 1997 when I was bedridden and my life was hanging by a thread. When my aunt came to visit me, she brought me Master’s audio lectures from Jinan. She and I listened to the lectures and she taught me how to do the Falun Dafa exercises. Master started to purify my body three days after I started listening to the lectures, and I was able to miraculously get out of bed the next day. A week later, I could do household chores and I became very healthy in three weeks. I was even able to work in the fields.

I listened to Master’s lectures every day, and the more I listened to them, the more I liked them. I wanted to meet Master and often wondered what such a great and compassionate person looked like. I asked my aunt several times about seeing him. She said she had only seen Master on the lecture video recordings. She said he looked very young and confident, and although Master was already in his 40s, he looked like a 20-year-old.

My aunt gave me a copy of the book Zhuan Falun in the autumn of 1997. I took the precious book and opened it to the page with Master’s photo. It seemed as if I knew Master from long ago. When I looked at the Chinese characters for “Zhuan Falun” on the front cover, my body shook like never before. I read the characters “Zhuan Falun” several times but did not know the true meaning of those words. I started to eagerly read Zhuan Falun that same day.

While I was reading Lecture Three in Zhuan Falun, I started to get drowsy and heard a male voice clearly telling me, “The true purpose of one’s life is to return to one’s original, true self.” The voice was very clear and crisp and it resounded in my mind for a long time. However, since I was a new practitioner, I did not know what returning to one’s original, true self actually meant.

I was getting ready for a nap one afternoon after I finished reading Zhuan Falun. Before I closed my eyes, I saw and heard a big, colorful Falun (Law Wheel) making whooshing sounds. It resounded in my ears while rotating clockwise and counterclockwise. It was magnificent and very beautiful. The colorful Falun rotated in my room, emitting beaming light. I was so enchanted that I stared at it for about five minutes. It was truly wonderful! I have never yet seen anything like it in the human world! When I had the thought, “I’m done looking at it,” the Falun disappeared—almost as if it had read my mind. I regretted thinking about not wanting to see it anymore.

Another practitioner and I rode the bus to attend a local Fa conference in March 1999. About halfway there, a practitioner called out, “I see a dragon up in the sky!” Everyone started to look out the window. Other practitioners started to call out, “I see a blue dragon” or “I see a red dragon.” I saw a blue dragon at that time and it was dancing in the clouds. Later on, other practitioners and I saw Faluns of all different colors. They accompanied us all along our trip, and everyone was very happy. We saw Faluns throughout the journey and felt very blessed! Words cannot describe the miracles and wonders we encountered during our journey!

When the SARS epidemic broke out in China in the spring of 2003, there were tight security checkpoints and public security officers at all forms of transportation. I was constantly on the move to avoid being illegally arrested at the time. I was helping another practitioner write sharing articles. I was on a bus after writing an article one day when I suddenly saw a Buddha in a yellow kasaya, or robe, hovering in the sky. It was magnificent in the blue sky and white clouds. I observed the Buddha closer and realized that it was actually Master. I was very touched and looked at the Buddha for about a minute.

I was illegally arrested and taken to a forced labor camp in the autumn of 2005. The guard in charge was very cruel, so I sent righteous thoughts to eliminate the negative factors behind her. Three months later I had a dream about a green snake dying. In another dream four months later, I handed that guard a juicy red peach. At first the guard politely refused to take it, but after I insisted, she was very happy. I enlightened to the fact that Master was telling me to save her.

In my head, I drafted a letter to the guard to tell her about Dafa and why she shouldn't participate in the persecution. Miraculously, that very day I was transferred to another cell that had paper and a pen on the table. It almost seemed like it was prepared for me, so I began to write a 2,000-character letter. The guard in charge came into my cell four times after reading my letter. She smiled at me and called out my name each time she came into the cell. After that, the guard was more compassionate towards me and other practitioners.

Another practitioner named Mei and I rode our bicycles to distribute truth-clarification flyers one autumn night in 2007. I was getting ready to go home after distributing 600 flyers when suddenly my vision started to blur and I fell off my bicycle several times. Mei was riding ahead of me and I suddenly thought to recite the Fa. I recited the poems “Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions” and “A Righteous God” while biking home. I regained my vision miraculously and was able to see the road more clearly. It was as if a lamp had been lit for me as I biked the last ten li (approximately 500 meters).

Thank you, great and compassionate Master!
