Accepting the Truth about Falun Dafa Can Bring Benefits
(Minghui.org) I was born in the Northeast, and was in poor health since birth. The doctors had diagnosed me with pneumonia, chronic coughs, asthma, and itchy hives. I was on antibiotics, anti-inflammatory intravenous drips and injections for as many years as I can remember. Mother also called for a traditional spiritual healer to come to our home. Nothing brought relief.
Additionally, my shoulder dislocated at the slightest provocation. Even the act of opening the door on my own, or being carried by an adult had the unintended consequence of dislocating my shoulder joint. After a doctor put the joint back in place, I suffered much pain and stiffness, which always left me in tears.
I often wondered why I was born into this world full of pain and suffering. Moreover my medical bills were putting a serious dent into my family’s financial resources.
Too Fatigued to Read Zhuan Falun
I moved to Shenyang City and worked as a dishwasher in a restaurant, where I met my future husband, a chef.
My husband was a Falun Dafa practitioner. He was a morally upright person who did not smoke, drink, gamble, or fight. Moreover he was always willing to help others. His behavior was in direct contrast to his peers. He told me that it was Falun Dafa that made him change. He lent me Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa and told me to read it. However, I could not read it because of extreme fatigue when I attempted to read it, so I returned the book to him.
I gave birth to a daughter after we got married. As our daughter required constant care during the first month, I was unable to take care of myself and fell ill, which aggrevated my heart condition. Therefore, I consulted traditional Chinese and Western doctors and took large quantities of medications daily. I lost my appetite, became very thin and was just living from day to day, unable to see any hope.
Worried about my worsening health, my husband gave up his job and we returned to our village. He spent hours telling me about the Dafa principles, and I was fascinated. I then read Zhuan Falun, and followed the Dafa principles. I learned from the book to curb my inconsiderate words and actions. Gradually, I put on weight and I found myself with a healthy body.
Dafa Saved Another Life
One of our customers is a 37 year-old man. When I delivered some goods, he sat listlessly at his table. Normally, he warmly welcomed me before he helped me unpack his goods. His wife said that he became depressed after he was diagnosed with diabetes. We all thought that chronic diabetes was a prolonged and fatal disease. Also, a recent attempt by his wife to conceive a child through in-vitro fertilization had failed within three months. All this unfortunate news contributed to his despair.
I spoke to him about Dafa and about quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He accepted what I said, because he had a good impression of Dafa. His family had overpaid us a few times, and each time I returned the amount and told him that as a practitioner I was obligated to do so. I then gave him an amulet, which he carefully put in his pocket, before I told him to recite sincerely “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and he would benefit.
A few months later I dropped by his home to deliver goods. He told me that the hospital found that he recovered from the diabetes. After the doctor questioned he said, “One of our suppliers gave me an amulet and told me to recite, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' I sincerely recited these words, which helped me recover from my illness.”
His doctor was amazed. A few days later, he visited the Shenyang Medical University to verify the lab results, and obtained the same confirmation. I told him, “You are really brave. Falun Dafa is still persecuted,. Weren’t you afraid to mention Falun Dafa?" He replied, “Even if the police were to ask me, I would still dare to say that reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good' was the thing that saved me.”
When it was time for me to leave, he drove me and my remaining goods in his rickshaw to the bus station. When watching him leave, I was suddenly overcome with the realization that because of Dafa he had fully recovered his health and strength and it saved his life!
