[Selected Submission] “Your Wife is Really Like a Bodhisattva”
(Minghui.org) Several years ago, my family had a van to provide rides for people, including students. We did this for a whole year. My husband was the driver and I was in charge of handling fares. We charged students 25 yuan per month for transportation between school and home. Several students' families were very poor. I thought: I am a Falun Dafa practitioner and I should not take their money, so I did not charge them fares for a year. Later, when the students would leave school and began to earn their livelihood, their parents wanted to repay me or give me gifts. I declined their offers with soft words: “I am a Falun Dafa disciple. I should not take anything from you.”
One day, an elderly man got on our van. He wanted to go shopping in the city. He returned soon after he got off the van. He told me he lost the 200 yuan he carried in his pocket and he wanted to take a look in the van. He could not find the money and he was very anxious. At that time, 200 yuan was not a small amount of money to most people. I also helped him search the van. I suddenly saw a pouch in a corner behind the door. I picked it up and saw there was 200 yuan inside. It was just what the elderly man searched for. I gave it to him. He was very glad and said: “Thank you. Thank you.” I smiled and said: “I cultivate Falun Dafa. Do not thank me. As long as you know Falun Dafa is good, it's fine.”
One day, we were driving in the suburbs. I saw a man in his 40s sitting on the roadside. He wore ragged clothes and carried a big bag. Our van finished two round trips in the area and passed him four times. He still sat there. I got out of the van and asked him: “Why do you sit here?” He said: “I have no money to pay the fare.” I asked him why. He said: “I did manual labor for a person who did not pay me when I finished the job.” I said: “Get in. I will give you a free ride.” After a while, he got off the van. I asked him: “How much would it cost from here to your home?” He said: “20 yuan.” So I gave him 20 yuan.
A teacher sitting in the van saw what I did. He was deeply moved. He said: “You are so kind.” He also gave the man 10 yuan. A while later I told the teacher that Falun Dafa is good and advised him to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations in order to have a peaceful future. He said: “I believe you because you are a kind person.” Three members of his family happily quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Another day, our van hit a child when turning a corner. People on the roadside said our van ran over the child so my husband and I quickly sent him to a hospital for treatment. As it turned, the child was not seriously injured at all, except for a bruise on his thigh. I knew that Master protected us and averted a potential disaster.
We later sold the van. A school principal heard this and said to my husband: “Your wife is really like a Bodhisattva. She always helped people to transport things and would not charge a fee. It is really a pity you closed the business.”
