(Minghui.org) When the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in China in November 2020, my eldest sister was admitted to the county hospital’s intensive care unit due to breathing difficulties. It turned out that the cavity in her left lung was full of fluid. The hospital issued a notice of a critical condition and urged her to be discharged quickly, as they could not cure her.
When my eldest sister’s daughter called me the next morning and told me about her situation, I urged my niece to have her mother recite the Falun Dafa auspicious phrases, namely, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
“I’ve been reciting it all night, and my mother has survived the night.” my niece said.
“Great, let’s recite it together.”
A few days later, my sister recovered and was discharged from the hospital.
My eldest sister isn’t the only one in my extended family who has benefitted from reciting the auspicious phrases. Despite the persecution of Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party since 1999, many of my family members know that Dafa is great and support me in practicing it. Because of their kindness, they have also been blessed.
My second elder sister’s husband suffered from liver cancer six years ago and went to Beijing for surgery. However, a year later, the tumor grew again in the liver. He was afraid because their family could not afford to travel to Beijing for surgery again, so he had his second surgery locally. He never imagined that after a month, three small tumors grew again, with one on the blood vessel of the liver. My brother-in-law was afraid to have the surgery locally again, so he decided to go to Beijing.
The day before he left for Beijing, I drove hundreds of miles to his house to see him, despite the rainy weather and slippery roads. I prepared a recording of Master’s teachings and told my brother-in-law about the many cases where relatives of Dafa disciples had received blessings through reciting the auspicious phrases, and asked him to do the same and listen to recordings of Master’s teachings. When my brother-in-law had a checkup in Beijing, he was surprised to learn that there were no longer any tumors in his body and that he could go home.
Now that eight years have passed, my brother-in-law is still fine and no more tumors have ever been found in him.
My 89-year-old mother-in-law is also a beneficiary of Dafa. She wakes up every day and recites the auspicious phrases for half an hour. She likes to live in my house as she sleeps soundly and feels comfortable in my home. Although I do not cook to her taste, she is not fussy about it. Whenever she is not feeling well at my husband’s older brother’s house, she calls my husband to pick her up and bring her to our house. Every time she returns to my brother-in-law’s place, she is reluctant to leave and tells me that she will be back in a few days.
In fact, before I practiced Dafa, my mother-in-law and I had a deep-seated conflict. My mother-in-law, who favored boys over girls, gave me a hard time during my first month after giving birth to a girl. She made fun of me and ostracized me, saying that the baby I gave birth to was a “demon” that I had to throw away. I was bullied and once even had a mental breakdown. I was forced to live away from home to avoid my mother-in-law when my baby was only 17 days old and managed everything without her help. I had a lot of resentment toward her, and I couldn’t let it go for many years.
It wasn’t until I practiced Falun Dafa that I forgave her. I felt relieved because Dafa had helped me understand many principles. I understood that people with resentment could never be happy; they resent every day, suffer and cause the people around them also to suffer. I believe my mother-in-law knew that I hated her and she didn’t come to my house for many years. When I completely let go of this resentment, my mother-in-law apologized to me, and I said, “It’s okay, everyone makes mistakes sometimes. It is Master Li (Dafa’s founder) who told me to be kind to people, and I will get along with you well. Let’s thank Master!”
A former colleague of mine was unable to eat and suffered from stomach pain for some time. After more than a month of treatment, she still didn’t see any improvement. When standing next to her, I could smell the medicine on her. She was losing weight and suffering from insomnia. I told her that she could try to recite the auspicious phrases and she may receive unexpected results.
When I saw her in front of the office a few days later, the bitter expression on her face was gone. She said to me with a bright smile: “I am well; I am completely well!” She said she now understood why I persisted in practicing Dafa despite the persecution. She thanked me and asked me to stay safe.
