Sentient Beings Wish to Obtain the Fa
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a Falun Gong practitioner who has been cultivating for the past 15 years. Under the protection of our compassionate and merciful Master, I have been able to make it to this point today. There are many sentient beings around me who wish to learn Falun Gong. Some of them drove to my home to learn it, asked for Falun Gong books, exercise tapes and exercise instruction videos.
One day in the summer of 2006, I was walking down the road and met an older colleague of mine. I asked him, "You looked quite okay some time ago, what has happened?" He said with much agony that he was diagnosed with brain thrombosis and was doomed. I told him to recite, "Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" and he would have good fortune. I also urged him to renounce his Party membership to guarantee his safety. He replied that he was not a Party member. I said he should then just recite "Falun Dafa is good" every day. He immediately followed and repeated after me and smiled.
At this time, his wife came to my side and said that I looked familiar. I told her that it was a predestined relationship that her husband was in the same work unit as I was. She said that she remembered that it was me who taught her the exercises in the park one time. She practiced for three days and then heard on the radio that the government had banned Falun Gong.
I told her about the wonderfulness of Falun Gong and the fact that if she renounced her Party membership it would guarantee her safety. She listened to me attentively and in the end she agreed happily to renounce her membership to the Communist Youth League. I asked her if she still wanted to practice Falun Gong. She said that she wished to, but was afraid. I told her that I would teach her and she gladly gave me her address.
I went to her house for a week and taught her the exercises. She gave up smoking, which she had done for over twenty years. She told me with much emotion that she had wanted to give up smoking all along, but was not successful. She told me that she had practiced Falun Gong for only one week and when she picked up a cigarette again, she did not feel the urge to smoke, and that Falun Gong was really miraculous.
Not long after that, I gave her the book Falun Gong and the exercise tapes. She told me excitedly that she would spend time reading the book. Although her husband did not want to practice, every time I went to his house, he said to me, "Falun Dafa is good" and his health was much better. Their children all agreed that Falun Gong is good and also renounced their Party memberships.
About ten people around me followed this example. Some of them wanted to learn Falun Gong on the spot after they understood the truth, and also asked for Falun Gong books. When I saw their delight and their wish to obtain Dafa, I was really moved.
One day in January of 2007, I went to the market in the morning to buy groceries. I saw an aged couple who used to be my colleagues rushing towards me. They told me that they had been looking for me for many days, and had been at my house but did not find me. I smiled and asked what was the matter. The woman pointed to her husband and said that they both wanted to learn Falun Gong. I asked them if they were studying Buddhism. They replied that they had been cultivating in Buddhism for over twenty years, but did not really see much improvement. The aged colleague quickly said, "Last year I was hospitalized five times and was diagnosed with heart disease. My heart skips a beat every three to five beats. I also have diabetes. I was given two warnings on the seriousness of my illness. You see, we have serious illnesses and we thought of Falun Gong." I told them to go back and read the book Zhuan Falun and then I would teach them the exercises.
One week had passed before I went to their house. Upon seeing me, the woman grabbed my hand and said, "It was really miraculous. My husband is saved." I looked at my aged colleague and saw that he was radiant and he talked with strength. He smiled and said that he finished reading Zhuan Falun in three days and now he was reading it for the second time. He told me that the more he read the book, the more he loved it. He also said that Master Li is a real Buddha and that Master Li saved his life. He felt that his heart disease disappeared and his pulse had returned to normal. I was happy for both of them. They were already in their seventies (my colleague was seventy-three while his wife was seventy-one). Master was taking care of them and did not leave them behind. Master is really compassionate; tears ran down my face.
The couple practiced the exercises every morning and they improved very quickly. Three months later, the husband went to the hospital for a check-up and the doctors noticed that his heart disease was gone. I told them that they should tell their personal story of how they benefited from practicing Falun Gong to their friends and relatives and the cultivators of Buddhism.
The couple once again expressed their gratitude towards me. I said that they should not thank me but should thank our Master for his painstaking arrangements. I told them that we must be diligent together and reach consummation and follow Master home. We all smiled.
Whenever I saw the joy of these sentient beings upon obtaining the Fa, I wholeheartedly exclaimed: Thank you Master!
