(Minghui.org) Greetings, Master. Greetings, fellow practitioners.

I would like to tell about a few miracles that have happened during my cultivation practice.

The first one was when I encountered Falun Dafa and became a practitioner. It was in the autumn of 1998. I had something to do for my company in a park at a cultural festival. I saw some Dafa practitioners doing the exercises on the stage and was very interested. I found them simple and logical. I came later and asked to learn. They said, “This practice is free of charge. Tomorrow, you can come here and we will teach you.” I didn’t know that doing this would forever change my life. 

The practitioners were friendly and kind, so I came regularly and practiced with them. One day they invited me to a nine-day video lecture seminar in Chinese—at that time there were no simultaneous translations into other languages—so I didn’t understand anything, but I participated in the whole seminar. Even though I didn’t understand anything, I found the teacher very serious, and I liked his manner when he taught the Fa. I also recognized him as the noble person I’d seenbefore in a dream. 

The second miracle was when I saw Master Li, the founder, at a Fa conference and decided to become his disciple. When I read the book Zhuan Falun, I didn’t understand much, but I had the feeling that what Master taught was very righteous and rational. It shed light on many subjects that other religious books or schools could not clearly explain. But I still had doubts... intelligent people can say things beautifully, but do they truly know what they say? So, a few months later, when fellow practitioners told me about the New York Fa Conference, I wanted to go. 

That’s where I had the chance to see Master Li for the first time. The impression Master gave me at that event was miraculous: This is a true Master who truly knows what he is teaching, and he is teaching the righteous Fa that is very precious. From then on I was determined. I would not go search for the Dao anywhere else, I would only follow this cultivation way until the end. I was 55 years old at that time. 

The third miracle happened when I suddenly understood my duty as a Dafa disciple after the persecution began. When the persecution of Falun Dafa started in July 1999, I’d only been practicing for a few months, so my understanding was very shallow. But in my heart I only had one thought: “The Buddha Law is being attacked. I must safeguard it and counter the persecution of my fellow practitioners in China.” I also thought: “Master has only one hundred million disciples, and I am one of them. I must be worthy of it.” I didn’t know at that time that this was exactly what I should do as a practitioner to proceed on this path of cultivation practice, and that the person who benefits from it the most is no one else but me. 

For example, I used to be very shy and didn’t dare to hand a flyer to someone in person. But I forced myself to do it for the sake of Dafa. I dared not speak in front of people, but for the sake of Dafa, I organized Dafa classes in different community centers to introduce the practice and speak about the persecution to other people. I didn’t know much about music but I registered with the Tian Guo Marching Band to play the flute. I even dared to try to sell small ads for theEpoch Times newspaper. All these were miracles. Master was beside me all the time and helped me so that everything went smoothly. This is how I’ve spent over 20 years as a Dafa disciple.

Other Miracles

Once as I was walking down a quiet street, I suddenly had an awful pain in my knee and could not move. Nobody was nearby. Suddenly, a tree branch shaped exactly like a walking stick appeared just in front of me; there were no other such branches around. I picked it up and went ahead to my destination. I used it for a few weeks until one day an older fellow practitioner told me, “You cannot use that, you are not an ordinary person.” She threw it over a wall and it disappeared as magically as it had appeared. 

Another time during this period, the marching band was scheduled to play in a city far away. I silently told Master: “Master, there are not many people in the band, I cannot skip it. Please help me.” I then joined the band as usual. The conductor knew about my situation and was a little worried. We played as we marched up and down hills for 40 minutes, and I had no problem with my knee. But at the finish, I suddenly couldn’t walk anymore, and fellow practitioners had to carry me to the bus and then to my house. Everything was so “miraculous” that I smiled to myself and thanked Master for his help.

One day we were in New York in front of the United Nations building. My brother worked there. After the rally to denounce the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of Dafa, I told my fellow practitioners that I wanted to stay a few days at my brother’s home, so they left. But that day was my brother’s day off, and I didn’t have any other phone number for him. There were still a few practitioners from other areas. I stayed there without knowing what to do. Just then, a practitioner I didn’t know but who lived in the area passed by and said hello to me. I told him about the situation, and he looked up my brother’s address and said: “I live in that area, come with me.” We took the subway, then the bus, to get to his home. Then he drove me in his car to my brother’s home. Wouldn’t you say that was a miracle? I remember Master saying: “The Sage is full of great aspirations while minding minor details” (“Sage,” Essentials for FurtherAdvancement). My situation was so minor, but Master took care of it.

Once Jiang Zemin (the former head of the CCP) visited the US. He stayed in a hotel in Houston. With about 20 practitioners from other areas, we decided to stay the night outside in front of the hotel to continue to protest. That night it rained (as usual, wherever the evil goes, it rains abundantly) and we were all soaked with our luggage next to us. When morning came, I didn’t know where to go or what to do. Suddenly, an older fellow practitioner that I knew before in my area appeared. After hearing that I had no place to stay, she said, “Come with me.” And she showed me where other practitioners were staying. What a miracle!

Another time, I was in Flushing, New York. After the demonstration event with the marching band, everyone left. I was preparing to stay a few weeks to help practitioners with our efforts to encourage people to quit the CCP. I had an address, but something happened and it didn’t work out. I was all alone, pulling my suitcase behind me. It was raining a little. As I was standing in front of a restaurant waiting for the rain to stop, a few practitioners were inside eating. They saw me and invited me to join them. Then one who lived in the area drove me to a place where other practitioners were staying. I always had these kinds of unique encounters.

One time we were distributing Shen Yun flyers in a nearby city. Each one of us in our group covered one street, but then I got lost. I had no cell phone with me, so I decided to just stay where I was and wait for my fellow practitioners to find me. Right in front of me was a very clean and comfortable couch that somebody was throwing away, so I sat down and calmly sent righteous thoughts. As soon as I finished, I opened my eyes and saw my fellow practitioners there in front of me. I was stunned.

Another time I was in a shopping mall helping to sell Shen Yun tickets. At lunch time, I was sitting alone eating in the restaurant area. Suddenly, food got stuck in my throat and I couldn’t breathe. At that time, I remembered a fellow practitioner was in the same situation. She told us, “If this is the last thing I will ever do in this lifetime, I will do it.” Then she silently recited “Falun Dafa Hao, Zhen Shan Ren Hao.” So I did the same thing! Miraculously, everything went down, and I could breathe normally. 

In daily life, Master also takes care of his disciples. Because I live alone, when I am in need of something, for example to repair a leaky water tap, to shovel snow, to cut grass, or to work on the computer, Master always sends someone to help. It might be a fellow practitioner, or someone else. The way they come to help is very extraordinary. There were also things that I didn’t know I would need later but Master brought them to me anyway. I only realized it later on.

When I first became a practitioner, I didn’t know English very well. But while studying Zhuan Falun in English, I improved my understanding of the language. Now at 78 yrs old, I would like to start learning Chinese so as to understand Master better. So, Master shows me a very particular way to study Chinese. When I was young, I was not very organized, but now it is better. I understand that all our abilities are given by Master. Master also keeps me in good health with the practice. All my former ailments disappeared long ago.

Miracles in My Family

I encountered a tribulation with my two sons. They are very good children. After finishing their advanced degrees, they got married, started their own families, and went to live in other cities. They used to tell each other with relief, “We don’t have to worry about our elderly mother. She is not an ordinary person, she is happy in Dafa and enjoys a life traveling here and there, with her fellow practitioners taking care of her.” That was true. Every year, I went to one to three Fa conferences in Canada or in the US. My fellow practitioners took care of my transportation, lodging, and registration. I just had to follow them to attend the activities. 

I was completely happy until my two grandchildren were born in 2006. After that, the two families suddenly tried to distance themselves from me. I could see in their attitudes interference aimed at preventing them and their children from having a connection with the Fa. For many years, I suffered tremendously due to this situation, but nothing could be done about it. It was my karma, combined with their karma. I should only cultivate harder so as to repay my karma and transmit to them the de that they would need. Then, one night when I was sending righteous thoughts, I saw my elder son and his daughter sleeping beside me and then Master came and projected two rays of light on them. The evil interference was destroyed.

After that, everything changed for the better. Last year, my elder son called me and said, “Mom, I want to practice Falun Dafa.” I don’t know what happened for him to awaken like that, because he sincerely insisted on becoming Master’s disciple. Then, I heard him turn toward his daughter and his wife and ask, “Do you want to practice, too?” Both loudly answered “Yes!” I was happy beyond words. All my suffering for this child and his family were gone in the blink of an eye.

Then, that same year, another incredible miracle happened on Thanksgiving Day: I reconnected with my second son and his family that I had lost contact with for seven years. I sent them three copies of Zhuan Falun and hope that they, too, can experience the wonders of Dafa. 

Master also uses other means to help me understand and raise my xinxing. Oftentimes it’s in a dream or visions during Fa conferences or on other occasions, or while I am meditating or through a word or a sentence in Zhuan Falun. For example, in one dream Master gave me a special pair of glasses. Later on, I could understand what is happening in the world nowadays as the battle between righteousness and evil is unfolding. Or when Master let me see the face of the demon of sentimentality, it was to let me know I had to relinquish it, because it is very ugly.


My life took a new path starting from the day I encountered Dafa. I was an ordinary person living in ordinary human society. My thoughts and actions were for myself and my family, creating a lot of karma out of ignorance. Even though I had read many books on religion and spirituality, all of them were just theories to me and could not apply to real life. To most people, it seems that cultivation practice is something “reserved” for a certain category of people. Therefore, like everyone else, I did it as best as I could in a “blind” way. Now, through Zhuan Falun, we understand much more. For example, everyone can cultivate and practice—all ages, all walks of life, and all professions and cultures, while living in ordinary society. It is the best environment for cultivating. Being able to elevate one’s xinxing through conflicts and personal interests between people is the quickest and the shortest path. 

Master explained: 

“A person’s earliest life comes from the universe... As the number of lives increases, a collective form of social relations develops in which some people may develop selfishness and gradually their level will be lowered. ... They will continue to descend further until, in the end, they reach this level of human beings.” ... One should return to one’s original, true self; this is the real purpose of being human” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

Master therefore created a new, simple, and logical method for cultivating body and mind that anyone can easily learn and practice in everyday life. As a consequence, in my view, when everyone can practice this method by raising their own moral standards in their relations with others, then all of humanity will have a chance to head away from destruction and toward a new future of peace and harmony.

Master also teaches us in Zhuan Falun a very high level Fa:

“The most fundamental characteristic of this universe, Zhen-Shan-Ren, is the highest manifestation of the Buddha Fa. It is the most fundamental Buddha Fa. The Buddha Fa manifests different forms at different levels and assumes different guiding roles at different levels.”… “As a cultivator, if you assimilate yourself to this characteristic you are one who has attained the Tao—it’s just such a simple principle.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

Master also warns us that cultivation practice is not child’s play, it is not something where we can do as we want and get what we want. There are many deviant and false paths. Many things about cultivation practice, according to Zhuan Falun,were unknown to ordinary people and even to the community of cultivators. Since Zhuan Falun has been made public, it has been like a beacon that illuminates the dark human world. Heavenly secrets are exposed with rationality and logic that move true practitioners or scientists who seek the truth about life, matter, and the universe. Zhuan Falun is a divine book, forever a precious and invaluable spiritual gift for mankind.

I’ve read articles by practitioners who were with Master early on and who helped establish the Fa in the human world. When Master started teaching, there were only a few disciples. Master wore no uniform and didn’t belong to any organization. He appeared as a “young” qigong master teaching his school of practice. Therefore, many people did not know who he was and did not show him proper respect. People with varying degrees of paranormal powers also came to challenge him. Demons from other dimensions also came to interfere.

Only deities in high dimensions were on their knees with folded hands to listen to Master’s teaching, but few people could see this. Only those whose celestial eye was open could see it. I believe all of it was real. Master worked tirelessly day and night for two years and went through a lot of “hard to endure” things to spell out this Dafa completely and give it to mankind. Even after the Fa has spread widely, the old forces in the old universe still wanted to interfere to prevent human beings from easily obtaining it and being saved. Almost 30 years have now passed, and we have been following Master and witnessing the enormous battle between compassion and the evil, satanic forces whose purpose is to destroy the souls of humans. And it’s not yet finished. 

Zhuan Falun has now been translated from the original Chinese into nearly 40 languages. Falun Dafa has spread around the world. The characteristic of the universe, Zhen Shan Ren (Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance) has entered the human heart. Mankind can now know how to live a “good life” in Gods’ view, and people can understand that to hurt others is to hurt oneself. It is the new Era of the Golden Age mentioned in many past prophecies. We will never have enough words to express our gratitude to our great Master, the Lord of Buddha who turns the Fa wheel and rectifies the Fa of the universe. We are the luckiest beings living in this period of time when Master is doing tremendous things in the Fa-rectification. 

Master, thank you for bringing us to Dafa and helping us to mature in Dafa. “Falafa Hao (is good), Zhen Shan Ren Hao (is good)!”

Thank you, Master. Thank you, fellow practitioners.
