Surviving Serious Accidents and Compassionately Saving Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) I'm a woman in my seventies who started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. My son-in-law and I have miraculously survived serious car accidents. My family knows that Falun Dafa is good and I'm very grateful to Master for his great kindness and compassion.
I've had many interesting experiences saving sentient beings. I would like to share a few of these stories with you.
My Son-In-Law Is Blessed and Survived a Car Accident
Four police officers broke into my home on the morning of February 23, 2003, attempting to arrest me. I viewed them as sentient beings that wished to be saved. I compassionately told them about Falun Dafa and the persecution. They left an hour later.
My son-in-law brought me to live with them in order to prevent the police from persecuting me. The next day he went on a business trip. He ended up driving into a ditch that bordered an apple orchard in order to avoid hitting a pedestrian. The car rolled over twice. Two apple trees were uprooted, and the windows were shattered, but the three occupants inside were not injured.
When he arrived home, he excitedly said, “Ma, since you are living with us, we have been bathed in the light of Falun Dafa. We wouldn't have survived the accident otherwise.” I said, “You have been blessed because you understand the truth about Falun Gong.”
I Am Blessed and Survived a Car Accident
I was walking across an intersection after leaving our small Fa study group on September 30, 2012, when I felt a huge force hit me from behind. I realized that I had been hit by a car. At the sound of the crash, I fell to the ground, and in a flash, I saw the turning of a car wheel. I felt something pull me from underneath the car and place me in a standing position. I was terrified.
I thought of what Master said,
“Good or evil comes from that instant thought.” (Zhuan Falun)
I thought, “I practice Falun Dafa. I have a Vajra’s indestructible body. I'm fine. Thank you Master for saving me.”
The driver was terrified. He said, “Auntie (Auntie is a respectful way to address an older woman.), I'm sorry, I didn't see anyone behind me. Are you hurt? Lets go to the hospital and get a check up.” I said, “I'm fine. We don't need to go to the hospital. I'm alright because I practice Falun Dafa. If you had backed up your van into a non-practitioner in her seventies, her bones would have been crushed and she would have died. It would have been horrible.”
The young man gratefully said, “Thank you auntie.” I said, “You can leave. Please remember, 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Have you heard about withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations?” He said, “I withdrew from the CCP two years ago.” I felt that he had good fortune because he had withdrawn from the CCP.
My right knee swelled up when I was sending forth righteous thoughts that night at 11:00 p.m. The skin on my knee felt as if it had split open when I was meditating, sitting in the lotus position. It really hurt, yet there was no pain emanating from my bones.
I told my family that I had been hit by a car. My daughter said, “I will take you to Fa study this afternoon.” I said, “You don't need to. I can go by myself.” I realized that I had gaps in my cultivation that evil elements had taken advantage of. I calmly looked within and found many attachments that I hadn't let go, including holding grudges, a fighting mentality, jealousy, and showing off, among others. The old forces were using these shortcomings to prevent me from doing the three things.
I also had a lot of pain in my abdomen during our Fa study the next day, and felt that it was distended. I only then thought about the consequences and internal injuries that would have resulted from such an accident if I hadn't practiced Dafa. I was safe and sound and my historic mission to clarify the truth to sentient beings went uninterrupted. This was a miracle of Dafa, and Master had benevolently resolved the outcome. Master is always protecting practitioners. Thank you Master for your great compassion and suffering so much on my behalf.
Compassionately Saving Sentient Beings
I have followed Master in the course of Fa-rectification. Practitioners are continuously telling sentient beings about Falun Gong and the persecution, and most people are willing to listen and withdraw from the CCP. I would like to tell you about some of my experiences.
Clarifying the Truth to Three High School Students
I was studying the Fa at home on the afternoon of August 27, 2011, when I was distracted by the sound of heavy rain. I didn't know why, but I couldn't resist the urge to look out the window. I saw three young men running to the shelter of a doorway on the opposite side of the street. I thought that perhaps these were people that I had a predestined relationship with, and I wanted to clarify the truth to them. I didn't think about whether the rain would prevent me from doing this. I just grabbed an umbrella and asked for Master's support to keep them from leaving.
I politely asked, “You seem pretty young, may I ask how old you are?” One of them said, “We attend high school.” I said, “I can tell that you must be good students. Your parents are very fortunate and have nothing to worry about. Do you have time to talk with me for a minute? I want to tell you about Falun Gong and the persecution.”
Two of them seemed a bit reluctant, but one of them said, “Go ahead, I want to hear.” One of the other two, a boy who was wearing glasses, tried to stop him by grabbing his clothes. I sent forth righteous thoughts and said to him in a solemn voice, “Young fellow, you shouldn't do this. You may not want to listen to what I have to say, but what right do you have to prevent others from hearing? This is a serious matter regarding his salvation, and your actions will result in bad consequences for you.” He quickly changed his attitude. Perhaps my righteous thoughts had eliminated the evil factors interfering with him. He then said, “OK, I'll listen.”
I told them about Falun Gong and the persecution, how the CCP was slandering Falun Gong, how much society had been corrupted, how students' minds had been systematically poisoned by the CCP from an early age, and why they should withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I asked them to remember, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They used their real names to withdraw from the Communist Youth League, an organization affiliated with the CCP. I wished them a glorious future. They said, “Thank you auntie.”
I returned home and sent forth righteous thoughts at 4:00 p.m. The room felt very tranquil and peaceful as soon as I shut my eyes. I felt as if I had entered a beautiful paradise. I knew that Master was encouraging me to save more sentient beings.
Clarifying the Truth to a Family in Their Car
I once clarified the truth to gentleman in his forties who was sitting in his car with his mother and daughter. I crouched by the side of the car and said, “Falun Dafa is wonderful. It is practiced all around the world. People here hate Falun Dafa because of the lies spread by the CCP. Their minds have been poisoned. The CCP has persecuted practitioners and harvested organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit.”
He jumped out of his car and gave me a seat cushion and said, “Please sit. You are older and must be tired from squatting there.” I said, “If you can understand what I'm saying, then I won't be tired at all.” Unfortunately he got a phone call before I was finished. He left. I was able to help his mother and daughter withdraw from the CCP. I hope he will meet another practitioner with whom he has a predestined relationship, and who will help him withdraw from the CCP.
Clarifying the Truth to a Man that “Handles” Falun Gong
I was once clarifying the truth at a bus stop when I noticed a well-dressed middle aged gentleman. We greeted each other. He glanced at me but didn't say anything. I thought, “I must tell him about Falun Gong before the bus arrives, or I will lose this opportunity.” I said, “Young man, I want to tell you about something. I don't know whether you are aware of it or not.” He didn't say a word but I didn't let this affect me.
I started to tell him about Falun Gong, the persecution, and withdrawing from the CCP. Before long, I heard him say in a low voice, “Do you know what kind of work I do? I'm in charge of handling Falun Gong and the persecution.” I didn't pause, and continued to earnestly tell him the facts. I said, “Then you have even more reason to hear what I have to say. You shouldn't blindly follow the lead of the CCP and sacrifice your life. You need to be responsible for your own life.”
He sincerely said, “I understand the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution. I have visited overseas websites about Falun Gong. I know that you are good people.” I said, “You are a smart person. I know that this is your work, but I hope that you handle your responsibilities well and protect practitioners. You will then be doing something good and receive blessings.” He said, “I know. I won't do bad things and hurt practitioners.” In the end he said, “Please pay attention to your safety.” I said, “Thank you for your concern.”
Young Man's Mind Poisoned by the CCP
There have been people who haven't wanted to listen to the truth, and I felt great compassion towards them. They have been deeply poisoned by the CCP, and I feel that their lives are pitiful.
I once met a young man in the shopping district. I said, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He didn't say a word and started to kick me in the calves ruthlessly. I left. He ran after me and continued kicking me from behind. I dodged him and he kicked aimlessly in the air. I turned around and said to him in a solemn voice, “What are you doing? What's wrong with telling you how to be a good person?” His head drooped and he looked listless. A woman turned to me and said in an angry voice, “People today are really bad. It's no use talking with them. They don't know what's best for them.”
I walked ahead and thought, “Master, please don't let my legs turn black and blue. I'm wearing capris because the weather is very hot. My family won't let me leave the house if they see that I have been kicked. That young man would then accumulate a lot of karma!” I finished clarifying the truth and returned home. My calves were swollen, with the imprint of the front part of a shoe, but they didn't turn black and blue. Thank you Master! My family never noticed.
I saw the same young man about a year later and wanted to save him. I said, “I have good news to tell you. Are you willing to listen? I truly wish the best for you. Falun Dafa is the Buddha Fa.” He spit at me and then hit me. I didn't react and was very calm. I felt pity for him. The CCP had poisoned him with lies even at such a young age. I hope he meets a practitioner with whom he has a predestined relationship, who can save him.
I will continue to be diligent, seize every opportunity to save sentient beings, and repay our venerable Master for his great kindness and salvation.
