(Clearwisdom.net) I am over 70 years old and had many illnesses before I started cultivating in Falun Dafa. The worst was blood in the stool, which I had for 18 years. I visited many medical experts in Baoding, Beijing and Shijiazhuang. They all said the same thing: There is no cure and no medicine that could alleviate my suffering. I was at my wits end.
A practitioner gave me the book of Falun Dafa teachings, Zhuan Falun, in the spring of 1997 and encouraged me to step into this practice. I didn’t read the book diligently before going to a practice site to learn the exercises. After three days of practice, there was more blood in my stool. This really scared me, so I walked away from this practice and put the book in the bottom of my drawer. I didn’t realize that Master was cleansing my body. By winter of 1998, I started to read Zhuan Falun more diligently, and in March 1998, I went to a practice site again to do the exercises.
The practitioner who had introduced me to Falun Dafa spoke of the miracles and benefits experienced by many Falun Dafa practitioners. I finally awakened and started to truly believe in Falun Dafa. I decided to cultivate to the end, no matter how difficult it might be. Never had I imagined that after three months, I would be free of all illnesses. This came as a big shock to everyone. My neighbors, friends and relatives began to admire Falun Dafa. Many people also started to practice after seeing what had happened to me.
The miracle of my becoming healthy again greatly affected my family. My spouse had been an atheist and hadn't believed in the existence of gods and Buddhas. After he witnessed the changes in my body, however, he realized that he had been poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and became determined to cultivate in Falun Dafa, too. At the time, I couldn’t read on my own. My daughter read Zhuan Falun to me and felt a Falun turning in her abdominal area. She then began to practice Falun Dafa.
My family formed a Fa-study group. I wanted to tell everyone that people who truly cultivate in Falun Dafa benefit greatly from the practice. Not only can one become healthy, but one's family life can also become more peaceful and harmonious. In the past, my husband and I fought like cats and dogs. Now, we respect and tolerate each other. We know that this is the power of Dafa. The power of the Buddha Fa is truly boundless. We told everyone we knew about Falun Dafa.
People Are Blessed after Learning the Truth
When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, we felt great pressure because the CCP agents burned Dafa books and illegally arrested practitioners. We cried, knowing that a practice that teaches people to be good and helps them to regain good health was being persecuted. Because I held strong fear, I dared not study the Fa or practice the exercises for a month. I was passively accepting the situation.
A fellow practitioner came to my home and said, “Your were cured of your illness, yet you only want to gain from Falun Dafa. Now Dafa is being persecuted, yet you don’t want to step forward and clear its name.” These words hit me like a hammer, and the fog in my brain immediately lifted. From then on, I no longer felt fear and got involved in clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa. I posted truth-clarifying messages on walls, as well as distributed and posted flyers. I took a taxi to places over a hundred miles from my home to distribute flyers about Falun Dafa. I never stopped and went over hills and valleys despite the bitter cold or the scorching sun to tell people about Falun Dafa and advise them to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. It didn't matter if I knew the person or if it was a stranger, I didn’t let opportunities pass by.
I took great care of my relatives, and many of them understood the facts about the persecution after I repeatedly spoke to them. My aunt's brother is a businessman. He was very touched after seeing me regain good health and improve my attitude toward people. He is very supportive of Falun Dafa.
One time, he and his friends were having a drink. They started talking about Falun Dafa. One of his friends said some negative things about the practice. My aunt's brother immediately stood up and said: “You are wrong. The CCP doesn’t tell people the truth. You are deceived by it. There used to be many satellite dishes installed in my village, and one could listen to news from outside of China. Government officials removed them. They are afraid for people to know the true situation. In fact, those who practice Falun Dafa are the best people. If you don’t believe me, just try to think of Falun Dafa practitioners around you? Take my aunt's sister for example. After she started practicing, she became healthy and she no longer has a bad temper. She also no longer wants to be better than others. She now lives peacefully with her daughter-in-law. She and her husband argued for half their lives, but now they take care of each other. They always think of others first. On the other hand, the CCP kills people, robs people, embezzles and is corrupt. Who do you think is good?” After this took place, several issues that he had with his business were quickly cleared up.
One afternoon, a neighbor told my aunt's brother that her daughter had been having a high fever for many days. The little girl had been in the hospital for over two weeks, but hadn't turned for the better. He told her: “Teach her to recite 'Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!' If you and she recite it sincerely, it will be effective. Go and try it, it does not cost anything.” The woman sincerely recited the words. By midnight, the child’s fever was gone. The next day morning before daylight, the woman came to my aunt's brother and said: “It appears you have a god watching over you. It was a miracle.” He replied, “It is Falun Dafa. You should thank Master Li Hongzhi!”
After he had told us these stories, my daughter said: “Uncle, do you know why you have such good luck? It is because you exposed the CCP's crimes at your drinking party. You spread the wonders of Falun Dafa. Remember, do these without pursuit from now on. As long as you spread and support Falun Dafa, you will have more luck in the future.”
On the night of January 13, 2006, he called and told me that my aunt was not doing well. My aunt was 80 years old. She had been in an unconscious state for over 10 days. Doctors had told the family to expect the worst. The next morning, my husband and I went to visit her. I said into her ear to remember “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” After I repeated this five or six times, she came to and recognized us. She asked for poached eggs. After one poached egg, she had some milk. At lunch, she ate a big bowl of food.
My aunt's brother noted that she no longer looked as if she was going to die. Three days later, I visited her again. She grabbed my hands with both hands and was clearheaded. She told me that Buddha had saved her. I told her again to recite, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She said that she had not forgotten those words. On August 15, 2010, I visited her again. She was 84 years old. I asked her if she still recited those words. She said, “Of course, as long as I have breath, I will recite them.”
There are many such miracles, but there is not enough space or time to list them all.
Editor's note: Over the course of the 11-year persecution of Falun Gong in China, many people's minds have been poisoned by the lies and slander of the Chinese Communist Party, causing them to have misunderstandings about Falun Dafa. In this environment of persecution, it is a major breakthrough for a person in China to understand the true situation and openly declare their belief in the goodness of Dafa. Many people have received good returns upon siding with goodness and coming to recognize a power higher than the ruling regime. This is one such story.
