(Minghui.org) My mother is 83. She not only takes care of herself, but also grows vegetables. She often sells her extra vegetables at the market. Many of her customers know her. One time, three customers were chatting with her as they picked out what they wanted. They asked her how old she was. Mother asked them to guess.
One of them said she must be in her 50s. Another one guessed 55. The last one said she was at most 60. Mother laughed and told them she was 83. They looked at each other in disbelief. How could an 83-year-old look so young? It was incredible!
Mother told them the reason she looked so young was because she practiced Falun Gong. They all agreed Mother had proved to them rejuvenation wasn't a myth. They said, “We will certainly remember what you told us: 'Falun Dafa is great! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are great!'”
My whole family has benefited from practicing Falun Gong. I have personally experienced how Dafa cleansed my body. My father's health has greatly improved, and his hunchback was straightened.
By chance I found the book Zhuan Falun when I went to buy cigarettes on September 8, 1998. I opened it and happened to read Master's words about dual cultivation of nature and longevity:
“I’ve already explained dual cultivation of nature and longevity in detail. Dual cultivation of nature and longevity means that while cultivating your character, you are also cultivating longevity, or in other words, you are transforming your innate body.” (Zhuan Falun, the Fifth Talk)
I flipped to another page and found:
“Your Mingmen acupoint is an extremely important, major aperture. Daoists call it an 'aperture,' and we call it a 'pass.' It’s an important, major pass, and it’s really like a steel gate—like countless layers of steel gates.” (Zhuan Falun, the Fourth Talk)
I thought it was a great book about keeping fit. I borrowed it from the cigarette store owner.
When I had read about a third of the book at home, I suddenly felt a Falun rotating in my abdomen. It was very obvious. It rotated counterclockwise nine times and clockwise nine times. It continued to rotate like this. I was excited that Master had given me a Falun! It was completely beyond my expectation, but it was so real. I continued to read the book and began to feel many Falun all over my body. They were cleansing and purifying my body. The most obvious sensations were on my shoulders and spine. I could feel many Falun of different sizes cleansing my body from different angels and locations. It was such a comfortable feeling!
After I finished reading the book, Master further cleansed my body. My chronic liver pain of 30 years was gone. My chronic gastritis, which had bothered me for 25 years, was cured. My 15-year-long arrhythmia and cerebral atherosclerosis were gone. My duodenal ulcer and serious nephritis went away without any treatment. No words can describe the great feeling of being rid of all these diseases. I felt energized all the time. My body was light and I walked quickly. I rode my bike with ease, as if someone was pushing me from behind. My family and friends admired me as I worked with such ease.
My wife and I went to visit my parents at the end of 1999. My father had just recovered from an illness. His face looked yellow and thin, and he didn't have energy to do anything. He was hunchbacked and much shorter. I was very saddened to see him like this. I told him about the health benefits of Falun Dafa and the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Father said he wished to cultivate himself in Dafa, too, but he was worried his age and stiff limbs wouldn't allow him to. I encouraged him by telling him that as long as he had the wish to cultivate himself, Master would help him regardless. He decided to try.
When learning the first exercise, he couldn't lift his hands higher than his stomach, even though he tried his best. He was discouraged, but I told him not to worry and continue to do his best. As he continued, I noticed his arms become more flexible. He could then lift his hands as high as his neck. By the time we finished for the day, he could already lift his hands to his forehead. Both of us were very excited with the progress. The next morning, I started reading the Fa with father. He studied one lecture and learned one exercise each day.
After 21 days, Father's tuberculosis, which he had suffered from for 40 years, was gone! His arms and legs were flexible. His back had straightened. He had a better appetite and could walk without a cane. He became completely healthy! After 25 days, he started working on the farm!
Having witnessed what happened to my father, Mother started practicing Falun Dafa in March 2000. Her rheumatism, stomach problem, and other ailments disappeared. Mother's appearance improved as well. Her face looks healthy and has a nice radiance. She doesn't have any wrinkles or gray hair. She looks so much younger than her actual age that people often mistake her as being in her 50s.
