Minghui Fahui | Being Steadfast Like a Rock, the Miraculousness of Dafa Saves Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) In a seemingly accidental occurrence, I was given the book Zhuan Falun. I scanned through the table of contents and realized that the book was what I had been looking for. I then quickly read the whole book and understood the purpose of life. From then on, I would study the Fa when I wasn't working or doing housework. The minute I started to study the Fa, I would be surrounded by a strong energy field, and I felt very comfortable. The pages in Zhuan Falun were transparent with a silvery sheen. The more I read, the more clearheaded I became and the lighter my body felt. However, when Buddhas, Daos, and Gods were mentioned in the book, I would hesitate. One time, out of the blue, my son came into my room and told me excitedly, “Mother, Buddhas, Taos, and Gods truly exist! I saw the gate to heaven open. Gods in heaven are enormous and the sticks in their hands are dozens of feet long.” How did he know that I was thinking of Buddhas, Daos, and Gods? I knew Master was giving me a hint through my son.
One night as I was sleeping, I felt a dark object sitting on top of me. I couldn't breathe and yelled out to Master for help. Suddenly, the dark object flew away and I saw three rows of Buddhas, Daos, and Gods. It was so solemn and magnificent.
I used to have bone overgrowth in my neck and spine, and my legs were crooked. I also used to suffer from insufficient blood supply to the brain, recurrent headaches, neurasthenia, stomach problems, hepatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and poor eyesight, hearing and memory. Two weeks after I began to practice Faun Dafa, I was able to walk fast on my own again and my crooked legs became straight. Five months later, all my illnesses disappeared. It was an amazing feeling! I would like to thank Falun Dafa and compassionate Master for giving me a second chance in life. From then on, I attended group study every afternoon and went out to tell people my experiences with Falun Dafa on the weekends.
After the persecution started in 1999, I was determined to continue cultivating. I refused to turn in my Dafa books or write statements that renounced the practice. My supervisor at work tried to make me quit practicing, but I clarified the facts of the persecution to him instead. One night after I fell asleep, a big, silver-white energy surrounded me. I woke up with a great sense of wellbeing. I knew that Master was cleansing my body. The next day, I felt as if I was floating on air. My vision improved and I felt like a young girl again. I jumped around at home excitedly, and my family was happy for me. I persisted in studying the Fa and doing the Falun Dafa exercises. I was part of the Fa, so I knew I should protect it. I went to a bookstore with another practitioner and bought all 20 copies of Zhuan Falun. We put them carefully away at home, so the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) couldn't destroy them.
Clarifying the Facts
I talked to my supervisors, coworkers, and patients at the hospital where I work about the truth of Falun Dafa. I also told them my personal experiences. Most of them understood the truth. The supervising office where I worked arranged a so-called “confrontation conference,” where everyone was supposed to accuse Faun Dafa of something. However, only one person ended up talking while another agreed. Nobody else took part. The conference ended quickly.
In 2003, several of my coworkers did the first standing exercise with me. Everyone felt a strong energy field. Many of them have read Zhuan Falun and know the truth. Several of them have openly said that Falun Dafa is good and that Dafa practitioners are good people. Later, two of them also began to practice.
Master said in “To Save The World” from Hong Yin III:
“Make known the truth and get rid of evil spirits
Spread the Nine Commentaries and the evil Party will fade
Save the world’s people with righteous thoughts
Expose the lies and open the locks in people’s hearts
We don’t believe consciences can’t be brought back”
I helped many of my coworkers, my supervisor and his children, and a former military person quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
I also went to visit friends and former classmates to tell them the facts and help them quit the CCP. Many of them withdrew their membership, including high ranking CCP officials, directors of hospitals, presidents of companies, businessmen, and professors. One of them brought his wife to me and asked me to help her quit. When I clarified the truth, Master opened my wisdom so that I was calm and clearheaded and never ran out of things to say. Master said,
"Validate the Fa with rationality, clarify the truth with wisdom, spread the Fa and save people with mercy..." ("Rationality" from Essentials for Further Advancement II )
Once, I clarified the truth to a college student at a bus station. After she quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, she said, “There are so many students in school who don't know [the truth]. Hurry up and go save them!”
Outside a supermarket, I talked to a Korean war veteran. He agreed with what I said about how evil the CCP was, but he refused to quit the CCP and was confident that Jesus Christ would protect him. I was not moved by what he said and continued to tell him in a firm, peaceful tone of voice, “Christianity is a righteous practice. It was persecuted for 300 years and the Christians were able to keep their faith. How commendable. Your lord knows that there is higher lord here now to offer salvation. When your lord knows that you can understand the truth of Falun Dafa and can quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, he will be happy that you are saved.” The man was suddenly awakened and said, “That is so! I will quit—and thank you.”
I clarify the truth to taxi and bus drivers, students, and grandmothers who are picking up their grandchildren. Many of them know the truth and have quit the CCP. In fact, Master is the one who is doing everything:
“Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master." (Zhuan Falun)
In the process of clarifying the truth, I realized many of my notions and eliminated them to improve myself.
To save more people, I began to write truth-clarification letters to people I didn't know. As Master said in the February 6, 2008 article “Greetings:” “Save your sentient beings, fulfill your great prehistoric vows, and make good on the pledges you made!” I collected names and addresses of people in different locations and professions. The content of the letter would vary depending on the person's occupation. I sent about 50 letters per week. More practitioners have now joined this project.
The Miraculousness of Believing in Master and the Fa
In the summer of 2006, Practitioner A, who had been practicing Falun Dafa for several months, came to my town. A was in her 60s and had leukemia. Her mouth and eyes were crooked, her limbs were stiff, she slurred her words when she talked, and she walked with a limp. She couldn't take care of herself. Accompanied by her husband and relatives, Practitioner A came to see me at home. She couldn't decide whether to go to a hospital or not. She was in great despair. Master said:
"...because the Dafa disciples are my disciples, and nobody else is worthy of handling them." ("Teaching the Fa at the Meeting with Asia-Pacific Students")
I asked her, “Are you truly practicing or are you ready to be hospitalized?” She quickly answered, “I am truly practicing!” I then asked her to stay with me.
Every morning, I did the Falun Dafa exercises with A. I would recite Master's Fa to encourage her when she had a difficult time doing the exercises: "When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it." (Zhuan Falun)
We also studied the Fa together. In the beginning, she couldn't read on her own, so I read to her. The next day, A insisted that she read on her own. Although she slurred her words, she was able to read almost 20 pages in Zhuan Falun. Her physical condition improved. I helped her bathe and cooked her meals. On the third day, she could finish reading one chapter of Zhuan Falun. Her mouth and eyes were less crooked. On the fourth day, she studied Zhuan Falun and Essentials for Further Advancement. Every day, I shared with her based on the Fa.
On the fourth and fifth day, her family called to inquire about her. Practitioner A said in a loud voice, “Listen, I can talk clearly and I am getting better every day.” Her family was very grateful to Master and Dafa. They kept thanking me and other practitioners who helped A. On the sixth day, she could raise her stiff arms and walk normally. On the seventh day, she was completely back to her normal self and healthy again. She held my hands and thanked me. She was ready to go home. With tears in her eyes, she knelt down in front of Master's photo and said, “Thank you, Master, for saving my life. I will be a steadfast practitioner.” Master said in "Master-Disciple Grace" in Hong Yin II:
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughts
Master has the power to turn back the tide”
I was able to witness the miraculousness of Falun Dafa.
