Master's Merciful Salvation Led Me to Recover from Leukemia
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a 54-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner from Jilin Province. I began the practice just one month before the persecution started on July 20,1999.
When the nationwide persecution of Falun Gong began, I gradually distanced myself from Falun Dafa. I didn't pay much attention to Fa study and I indulged myself with leisure activities. In 2000 however, I began to develop a high fever, and was unable to wash my clothes, take showers, and brush my teeth. Whenever I washed my hair, I would catch a fever; and whenever I brushed my teeth, my mouth would bleed. Soon after the Spring Festival [Chinese Lunar New Year] of 2001, I went to the hospital and had a physical checkup. They gave me some injections to cure the fever. After the shots were administered, my buttocks turned purple and the color gradually extended over to my lower abdomen. I developed a rash all over my body and my nose also began to bleed. I was diagnosed with late-stage leukemia. My doctors asked my family to prepare for my funeral, and my neighbors came over to my house to make funeral clothes for me. I lay on my bed for two weeks, unable to eat any food, and my nose just kept bleeding. If I blocked my nose, the blood would ooze out from my mouth. I had difficulty opening my eyes and felt very tired. Even when I did open my eyes, I couldn't see clearly. When people visited me I couldn't recognize them even if they stood right beside my bed. I said to myself: "That's it, I will just wait for the final day to come." My family had already bought worship-money [artificial paper money to be burned on the altar of the deceased]. For three days, my primordial soul left my body and flew around in some valleys. I couldn't see the sky when I looked up, and I couldn't see the ground when I looked down. I couldn't see my own body either. Blowing winds whistled around my ears.
On February 4, 2001, when I was lying on my bed, I suddenly saw bright lights on the ceiling, and I could see them even more clearly when I closed my eyes. I saw numerous Falun (Law wheels) spinning around on the ceiling. Immediately afterwards, I felt a wave of heat throughout my physical body, warming up my whole body from my head down to my feet. Soon after that, I could get up from my bed and eat some food. My family thought that I was just experiencing the so-called "returning to consciousness just before dying." I told my family that there was still hope in me, and that I could still practice Falun Gong. The excitement inside me at that time was beyond any expression. I thought to myself, "Teacher is still looking after me even though I have degenerated so much." Ever since then, my primordial soul stopped leaving my body and I could sleep normally.
I resumed cultivation and my health improved very quickly. Gradually, I could take walks outside. When my friends and neighbors all asked me how I had recovered, I told them that it was a result of my practice of Falun Gong. Witnessing the dramatic changes in me, many of my friends and neighbors also began to practice Falun Gong with much diligence. They had all personally seen the miracles of Dafa through me.
There was a person who had been practicing cultivation inside a certain temple, and this person also started to practice Falun Gong after learning about my experiences. All of those that had contact with me came to know Falun Dafa and that it is indeed good.
My four-year-old grandson's fingers were once accidentally clamped by the door and his nails were cracked, but the little boy didn't yell for help and he said he didn't feel any pain at all. He just went ahead and sat on the bed doing the sitting mediation by himself, asking Teacher to help eliminate the karma. Soon afterwards, new nails grew out.
A fourth-grade elementary school kid was always stealing his parents' money, didn't pay attention to his schoolwork, and had bad temper tantrums frequently. I gave the boy some truth-clarification materials and told him about Falun Gong. Soon, the child changed his bad attitude and started to study well at school, and his other bad habits also went away. One of my neighbors once had a hemorrhage, and I told her to recite "Falun Dafa is good" in her heart. She did that throughout a whole night, and the next day, the hemorrhage was healed. There are so many such episodes. It is Teacher who has saved my life, and who is saving all the sentient beings right now. I can never pay him back for that. I will definitely follow the Fa and keep on practicing until the end. I will do my best to do the three things--studying the Fa, clarifying the truth, and sending forth righteous thoughts--so that I can live up to Teacher's benevolent salvation.
