My Family Benefitted Greatly When I Became a Falun Gong Practitioner
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a Falun Gong practitioner from the Northeast. Before I practiced Falun Gong, I suffered from many diseases, with high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver disease, and neurasthenia bothering me for years. When I began practicing the exercises in 1996 and studying the teachings in Zhuan Falun in no time all my ailments were gone, and I even began to look younger, much to everyone’s surprise.
“Haven’t I said that with one person practicing, the whole family benefits?” (“Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia,” 1999)
Over the past ten years, our family has experienced Master's benevolent care again and again. We have passed many trials and tribulations safely.
1. My Son-in-law Unscathed after Being Hit and Squeezed Between Two Cars
The winter of 2008, my son-in-law was on his motorcycle on his way to the market to buy groceries when a car suddenly turned sharply in front of him, hit a van, and trapped him between the two vehicles. When he got free and checked his arms and legs, he found he was not hurt at all, but the rear of the motorcycle was smashed. The driver wanted to take him to a hospital, but he said it wasn't necessary. They offered to repair his motorcycle, but he said, “No, thank you. It's all right.” He got back on his motorcycle and stopped to buy some vegetables when he noticed the tire was flat. When he sent it in for repairs, the mechanic said, "Your motorcycle had five holes it it. How did you drive it? That is amazing!" My son-in-law knew that it was Master who saved him. From then on, he believed in Dafa more. Workers in our restaurant all knew that Falun Dafa saved him, so they all quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
2. A Burning Gas Tank Suddenly Extinguished Itself
Once morning in the early winter of 2009, the rubber tube connected to a gas tank suddenly fell off, and flames erupted from the tank. The workers tried to put out the fire with water and a wet blanket, but they could not extinguish the flames. In order to save the workers and our neighbors, my son-in-law ran over to the gas tank, his cotton clothes soaked with water. I cried, "Master, save us!" Suddenly the flame at the opening grew smaller and smaller and finally went out. A very dangerous situation was instantly resolved. My family, friends, and the fireman on site all witnessed the miracle of Falun Dafa that day.
3. Respecting Our Traditional Virtues
My son-in-law went to his niece's home for her wedding. There are three rooms and a living room in her home. Their living space got the benefit of the warm sun, while her mother-in-law's room was cold and dark. He said to his niece, "You are the daughter-in-law, and, according to traditional values, you should let your parents-in-law live in the sunny room, while you live in the other room to show your respect for them. We should not be like modern young people, who always put their own comfort first, are extravagant, and do not respect their elders. You should be a good daughter-in-law and live by Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." His words deeply touched his niece and mother-in-law. His pureness of thought rectified all their own selfish thoughts. In today’s China many people put their own interests first and are very selfish. His words and deeds followed Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. Both families benefited from the universal principles of Dafa.

4. My Granddaughter Grew up Healthily
My granddaughter benefitted greatly when she began to practice Falun Dafa. From primary school, middle school, and up to college, she never needed extra tutoring. Studying the Fa made her wise and clever, and her grades were always excellent. Working on her four-year university degree, her academic scores were also excellent. Once during an election for college student committee members, it was made obvious that Communist Party members would be favored. My granddaughter was a practitioner and would not enroll in the Party, so she rightly gave up the election for committee member. As a result her boyfriend broke up with her. In getting rid of attachments to feelings, she progressed diligently, and her xinxing was upgraded. When applying for scholarships, she did not worry nor was she moved to compete. She passed many tribulations, and upgraded her xinxing even more. At her graduation, she had the best scores in the school. She applied for a teaching position and was chosen to be a middle school teacher.
Everyone in my family has greatly benefited from Dafa, and many of our relatives have started to read Zhuan Falun and begin the practice.
