(Minghui.org) Lian once suffered from severe depression and had to take medication every day. The death of her father in 2019 was very hard on her and made her condition even worse. Her behavior was erratic, and she was admitted to a psychiatric hospital for the second time.

After Lian was discharged from the hospital, her mother Ju, in her 80s, had to take care of her. Ju used to be a colleague of mine and we still kept in touch after we retired. When Ju’s husband died, I went to visit her. I found her in a very miserable situation, filled with grievances and in pain.

She had heart disease, high blood pressure, leg pain, difficulty walking, and severe insomnia. She was also frightened of being alone at home. Nonetheless, she had to take Lian back and forth to the hospital and take care of her at home. It was really hard on her. 

During our visit, I talked about Falun Dafa and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. In particular, I encouraged Ju to calm down and recite the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She agreed and seemed to be hopeful. 

Soon after, Ju told me that she was no longer afraid of being alone at home and she could sleep just fine. The pain in her legs also got a lot better. The miraculous changes in her health gave her more confidence, and she continued to recite the phrases more devoutly. 

As we talked, Ju learned the facts about Falun Dafa and that the practice is welcomed all over the world. She once told me that she had actually gone to a lecture given by Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, in 1993. It was in Beijing, and she sincerely regretted not attending the entire series of lectures due to her poor enlightenment quality at the time.

So I gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun, e-books with Master’s other lectures, videos on the facts of Dafa, and copies of Minghui Weekly. She was very pleased to have them. Ju was improving day by day and began to look very healthy and in much better spirits. Even half of her gray hair started to turn black. She knew that Master was looking after her, and she became even more diligent about studying the Dafa teachings.

But when she looked at her daughter Lian, she was overcome with worry, unsure what would happen to her in the future. 

“Don’t worry,” I comforted her. “As long as you have true faith in Dafa and Master, your family members will also benefit. The more diligently you cultivate, the quicker your daughter will recover. She will be fine.”

Lian also noticed the changes in Ju. “Mom, what are you reading?” she asked. “I’m reading Zhuan Falun, and I have started practicing Falun Dafa. It’s very good,” replied Ju.

Very late one night in 2022, Lian had severe abdominal pain and broke out in a cold sweat. It was inconvenient to take her to hospital at the time, so Ju suggested to Lian, “Let’s recite these phrases together, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”

Five or six minutes later, Lian’s pain was gone, and she fell asleep again. When she woke up, everything was fine. Lian was so impressed with the power of Dafa that she also started to practice. She and her mother have been studying the teachings together every day. Both were safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Lian has now changed for the better both physically and mentally. Her former dull countenance is completely gone, and she is much happier. She is able to write pure and beautiful experience sharing articles.

Falun Dafa has given Lian a new life and a better future. Seeing her smiling face, my heart was filled with gratitude to Master. She told me that she reads Zhuan Falun every day and is very happy. She has become more respectful of her mother and does most of the household chores. She also helps her neighbors whenever needed and is very happy to do what she can.
