(Minghui.org) I am 58 years old and began to practice Falun Gong in 1998. I used to be of ill health and very weak and suffered from many illnesses. I often came down with a fever, had a headache, and felt dizzy. In 1996, I contracted a very strange illness, which made me itch all over. First, a small pustule appeared that kept growing and then more and more pustules appeared. I couldn't fall asleep because of the itching. I went to the hospital and had blood and skin tests, but to no avail. I felt terrible and was at a loss. Finally, the hospital contacted a specialist who couldn't diagnose it either. They then just called it a “large pemphigus,” which is a rare autoimmune disease. They had no clue what medication would work and injected hormones to control the itch. The pustules got smaller, but after a hospital stay of more than 20 days and once the medication wore off, they grew big again. I decided to check out of the hospital, but the doctors advised against it. I gained a lot of weight from the hormone injections. I looked like a monster. I wanted to check out, but the doctors wouldn't sign the discharge papers. After I told them that I had run out of money, they discharged me.

At home, the pustules kept growing bigger. One of my relatives, a doctor, asked me to come his place and he would try to help. He chose a combination of Chinese and Western medicine and controlled the growth of the pustules, but I still itched all over. So, after a while I returned home. Then, someone told me that there was a kind of qigong that could cure illnesses, but it didn't help either.

Becoming Healthy after Learning Falun Dafa

Then, for whatever reason, maybe it was my luck, a friend told me that many people were learning Falun Gong and that if a person practiced it with a true heart, it even could cure cancer. I was very glad to hear that. I went to the local practice site that evening. There were quite a lot of people at that site. They were kind and took care of me. They told me about the beauty of Falun Dafa and I was moved after listening to them. I decided to learn Falun Dafa.

The practitioners taught me the exercises and helped me get a copy of Zhuan Falun. That day, I didn't feel that itchy anymore and I could sleep again. After ten days I felt even better and more comfortable. Later, some yellow pus came out of the pustules and I felt itchy and uncomfortable again. But I knew it was Master taking care of me and purifying my body. One week later, there were no more pustules and I no longer felt itchy.

Remembering those days, I still shudder. Falun Dafa is amazing! Dafa saves people’s lives and teaches people to be good. One lives by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, which are the most fundamental principles a human should follow.

My mother, my husband, and my sister are also practicing Falun Dafa. I am deeply grateful to Master Li, who gave me the second chance to live. Thank you, revered Master!

Falun Dafa Saved Another Life

In 2007, my father was diagnosed with a late stage lung ailment. No injection or medicine helped. I hadn't known about this until my younger brother called me and asked me to come and see my father one last time. My sister broke out in tears when she heard about father's imminent death. At that time, I held the thought that Falun Dafa could save my father’s life.

I took a Falun Dafa amulet (1) with me and went to the hospital. My father was in very bad shape and couldn't open his eyes. The doctor said that he would not live beyond noon and asked us to take him home. I took out the amulet and said to my father, “Dad, here is a present from me.” I put it in my father’s pocket. I also asked him to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” At that time, my father was still conscious and he nodded. I became calm. I said to all my family that my father was saved and he would be fine. One family member doubted that I spoke the truth and asked “Will it really work?”

At 5 p.m., my father could speak and he wanted to eat! He recovered within a few days. He told me later that the moment I gave him the amulet, he knew he would not die. He felt a warm current flow from his feet towards his head and he felt very comfortable. He recovered and became healthy again. He told everyone that Falun Dafa is really good and that it is Falun Dafa that saved his life.

Saving Lives and Returning to Good Health

In 2009, I heard that one of my colleagues had hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). I decided to visit him and tell him about Falun Dafa. His home was about 124 miles from where I lived, so I took a bus to his house. He was resting when I arrived. I asked him, “I heard that you are not feeling well?” He replied, “Yes, I just returned from the hospital.” I saw that his hair had fallen out and his face looked yellow. I told him, “Today I bring you a Dafa amulet that can save your life. Do you believe it?” He was very happy and said, “Yes, I believe. I believe.” I told him, “Please recite, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Then you will be fine.” He recited happily. I gave him some Dafa materials later on and asked him to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates. He and his family of four quit. It took several months, but he fully recovered. He had another test at the hospital and was found to be in good health.

In 2010, I heard from one of my relatives whose father suffered from rheumatism. One day, his daughter gave his father a Falun Dafa amulet and told him, “People say that Falun Dafa can save lives. Why don’t you try to recite the words ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’?” A few months later, he said to his daughter, “My dear daughter, Falun Dafa really works! My legs are fine now and they no longer hurt. I can even do all the heavy farm chores.”

There are many more such stories, and they all attest to the power of Falun Dafa and the mercy of Master Li. In order to thank Master, I, as a practitioner, must practice well, do the three things to save more people, and return home with Master.

Note: (1) Amulets – In China, practitioners sometimes clarify the truth by giving people something small to wear or cherish, bearing a few words reminding them of the goodness of Falun Dafa.
