Benefiting from Practicing Falun Dafa, Diligently Saving People

Sept. 17, 2021 |   By Baolian, a Falun Dafa practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) in 1997. Through practicing Dafa, I have gone through tremendous changes both mentally and physically.

Since Master Li (Falun Dafa's founder) asked us to clarify the facts and save sentient beings, I have been doing just that. I’d like to report a few stories to Master and also share with fellow practitioners.

I Benefited Both Mentally and Physically Through Practicing Dafa

Prior to practicing, I was very ill. I had hyperthyroidism, diabetes, heart disease, a kidney infection, neurosis, a perforated eardrum, internal hemorrhoids, and external fissures. As a result, I had frequent blood in my stool and swollen buttocks, which made it impossible to sit.

I often took medications and got injections, but they didn’t help. In April 1997, I was fortunate enough to begin Dafa cultivation.

Within two months, all my health problems disappeared, and I tossed all my medications away. Master gave me a new life.

By cultivating, I became tolerant, and many miraculous things happened to me.

I ran a small store, and one day, two young girls came in to buy something. I don’t know how I provoked them, but while they were heading out, they started cursing me.

An elderly lady who overheard them said that I really had changed. When these two young girls cursed me, I just laughed.

She said that if this had happened before I practiced Dafa, I would have started a fight with them. From my attitude, this lady saw how much I’d changed. Inspired by that, she started to practice Dafa.

One summer, my husband bought 10 kilograms of concentrated hydrochloric acid in a plastic container. When he was taking it off the bicycle, he let it go before I had a hold on it. It hit the ground and broke, splashing hydrochloric acid onto the tiles, gurgling and bubbling.

I was only wearing a pair of silk stockings, and the acid splashed on my pants and feet. It ate through the stockings, but I was fine. My husband was dumbfounded. He wondered why my pants were still fine.

People from nearby stores came running over. The owner of the store across from mine saw blue smoke raising off the ground, as if it was on fire. The bricks were so burned they turned white. He said, “This time, I truly believe it. I didn’t understand how powerful Dafa was before, but now I do.”

When I spoke to the owner of the neighboring store about quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) before, he didn’t want to do it. He said, “Please stop talking to me about that. I don’t want to quit, nor do I believe what you are saying.”

This time, he saw what was right in front of him and said, “Please help me withdraw from the Youth League.”

One time, a few people came to buy something. I prepared their receipt, but only after they left did I realize I forgot to charge them.

Later on, a couple of primary school students came in to buy white gloves, which cost a little over 200 yuan. I helped them quit the Youth League but forgot to charge them again. This kind of thing happened many times.

At first, I was very upset. I wondered, “Why do I always forget to collect their money?” Later I realized I must have been paying back what I owed in the past. I have been in business for many years. Shouldn't I return whatever I obtained through improper means?

After I completely let go of my attachment to self-interest and wasn’t moved anymore, that never happened again.

Another time, I went to the warehouse to pick up some goods. As I was carrying them out, an elderly lady asked me if my store had been robbed. I said, “Why are you asking?” She said, “Didn’t everybody else get robbed?” That’s how I came to find out that, out of the 12 stores near me, every one but mine was burglarized—even though it was packed with goods. I knew it was Master watching over me.

One time, I went to a supermarket. I picked out a few pieces of fruit from a stand owned by a young man and handed him bills that had words about Falun Dafa written on them. He refused to take them, saying they had characters printed on them.

No matter how hard I tried to convince him, he wouldn’t change his mind, so I went the stand right across from him, where the owner was willing to take my bills.

I turned around and smiled kindly at the young man. When I went back to his stand later and picked out some fruit, he decided to accept those bills. Then I told him, “These bills are good fortune. If you accept them, you will be blessed and stay safe.”

He shouted, “Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!”

Keeping Sentient Beings in Mind and Saving Them Diligently

Police Station Chief Knew the Truth

A police officer came to my store to buy a pair of shoes. I said, “Sir, you want to buy a pair of shoes. That you have come into my store is our predestined relationship. Please remember ‘Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!’”

He said, “You have guts! Seeing me in this uniform, you still dare to talk to me about Falun Dafa. Let me tell you, I’m in charge of the Falun Dafa issue, and I could arrest you now.”

I said to him with a smile, “What don’t I dare to talk about? Just because you wear that uniform, I wanted to say something to you. Police officers also need to be saved—I’m truly thinking of your welfare. If you remember ‘Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!’ you’ll be blessed. When calamities come and people are eliminated, you’ll stay safe.”

He told me that, a couple of days before, an elderly lady delivered a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to his home. He told her that if she gave him stuff like that again, he would arrest her.

I said, “The lady who delivered the Nine Commentaries to your home was there to save you, but you wanted to arrest her. That was wrong.”

I then told him how people like Zhou Yongkang incurred retribution for persecuting practitioners and about the crime of live organ harvesting. I talked for nearly two hours. In the end, he was moved and said I was great. Before he left, I gave him a pair of shoes for free.

The second time he came back to buy shoes, I spoke to him about Dafa for another two hours and gave him another pair of shoes.

The third time, he came to exchange shoes. I upgraded his shoes and clarified the facts to him for another two hours.

He said, “I’m the chief of a police station. I told everyone in our police station that you are very nice. Now, if someone reports practitioners, we just had to turn a blind eye to it.”

He told me that he’d run into that elderly lady who handed out informational materials again. He saw she had quite a few brochures with her and let her go. I told him that he would have good fortune. He told me to pay attention to my own safety and that he would update me if there was any news related to persecuting Falun Dafa.

I felt he truly understood the truth. I also told him not to take something for free anymore, especially when it came to taking practitioners’ money, and explained the principle of no loss, no gain. I told him that when our practitioners were hit by a car, they didn’t accept any compensation.

After hearing this, he wanted to pay me for the two pairs of shoes I’d given him before. I told him that I’d meant to give them to him for free.

After Believing in Dafa, Storeowner’s Breast Cancer Was Healed

A married couple from Hebei Province opened up a business near my store. Not long after that, the wife developed breast cancer. After she had chemotherapy, she lost all her hair. She often cried because of her situation.

They also had a boy in third grade, and I often clarified the facts to him. He believed what I told him.

He not only withdrew from the Young Pioneers, but he also talked to his classmates about quitting that organization. Whenever he saw brochures and truth-clarification flyers on the ground, he’d pick them up and hand them over to me.

One time, he almost slipped on the ice but quickly managed to recover by reciting “Falun Dafa is wonderful!” Another time, he slipped in the shower, hit the mirror, and smashed it. The mirror was broken, but he was unscathed.

At first, this couple didn’t believe me, but I often clarified the facts to them and said, “If you can believe me, then you will be healed.” I asked her if she wanted to watch truth-clarification DVDs, but said she had to believe me before I would give them to her to watch.

This time, she said she’d believe me, and later, she indeed was healed. During all these years, I have helped all the store owners near me quit the CCP.

They all know I practice Dafa and that Dafa is wonderful.

A Chemical Engineering Teacher Finally Quit the CCP

A teacher at a chemical engineering school came to buy lab coats for his students. When he first came, I began to talk to him about quitting the CCP. He kept shaking his head, saying, “Stop talking. If you don’t, I won’t buy anything from you.” So I just said a little bit about how Falun Dafa teaches people to be good.

He saw I was a nice person and said, “I buy your clothes only for the sake of buying your clothes. Don’t talk to me about that.” So I acquiesced.

I often sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the bad substance controlling him. Whenever he came, I could talk to him only a little bit each time.

But over time, I touched him with my sincerity. He also came to realize that people who practiced Dafa are reliable and have good hearts, and he often came to buy things from me. I wanted to save him from the bottom of my heart, so I also asked Master for help. One time when he came, I asked if he felt OK, because I saw his eyes were black.

Before admitting he didn’t, he asked me how I knew. I said, “You have come here to shop for clothes for a while now, but you never believe Falun Dafa is good. Dafa can help heal illnesses and keep you fit. You could just recite ‘Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!’ quietly to achieve that. So many CCP officials have now quit the CCP and its youth organizations.

“You could quit from deep down inside to ensure your safety and be cured. Besides, when the great calamity comes, you can escape it and stay safe.”

This time he truly felt my sincerity and made up his mind to quit the CCP. Later, I also gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun.

A Plainclothes Officer, “I Know.”

A person came in to buy white gloves, and I began to talk to him about Falun Dafa. He asked if I knew what he did and then told me his code name. I figured he was a plainclothes officer and felt a bit scared.

But right away I asked Master for strength and reminded myself not to have fear. Then I began to send forth righteous thoughts.

Just as he was about to leave, I said, “I’m truly concerned about your welfare. When you drive, please recite ‘Falun Dafa is wonderful! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is wonderful!’ to ensure your safety. What I’m suggesting is meant to save you.”

He said, “I know.”

A Police Officer, “Four Out of Five People Died, I’m the Only One Who Survived.”

A man came into my store to buy repaired clothes worn by police officers. No matter how hard I tried to engage him, he wouldn’t say anything and just kept busy trying on clothes.

I couldn’t figure out why he was like that. Then he pulled out his cell phone but said to me, “Don’t be scared. I will not report you. I understand your thing. Four out of five people died—only I survived.”

I figured right away he’d been in a car accident. He had understood the truth so he came out of it safe and sound.

Studying the Fa Well, Master Protects Me

I have run this store for more than 10 years and clarified the facts to the majority of my customers. A practitioner asked me, “Why aren’t you afraid when you clarify the facts to people?”

I said, “What is there to be afraid of? Can we save people if we harbor fear while trying to awaken their consciences?”

Actually, I know I can stay safe when clarifying the truth because of Master's indispensable protection at all times. Master arranges everything, and all we do is play our part.

Over the past 20 plus years since I began cultivating Falun Dafa, I have only missed Fa-study and doing the exercises a few times. It would have been truly great if I never missed once.

I have also taken a few detours, but I didn’t let them get me down. I have stumbled and fallen, but I still get up and keep moving forward.

For me to be able to reach so many predestined people is all due to Master’s painstaking arrangements.
