People in Lingyuan City, Liaoning Province, Blessed after They Truly Believe that Dafa Is Good (Part 3)
(Minghui.org) Chinese people believe that “Good would be rewarded with good, while doing evil would be met with retribution.” Since Falun Dafa's spread throughout the world, many people have benefited because of their support for Dafa and experienced good fortune.
However, there has been those who maligned and persecuted Dafa. Many have thus faced misery, afflictions, tribulations, and even death.
10. Atonement Brings Blessing
Mr. Luo, a farmer from a village in Lingyuan City, was in good health. Even though he was over 60 years old, younger people could not keep up with him at work.
However, his life was not always easy, free, and healthy. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, he believed in the lies broadcasted by the Communist media and he participated in the persecution. He used abusive language against Falun Dafa and its Teacher Li Hongzhi, the founder of this spiritual practice, and tore up Dafa truth clarification materials.
His daughter practiced Falun Dafa and repeatedly told him that good is rewarded and evil is punished. But he refused to listen.
His health began to deteriorate significantly three years after the onset of the persecution, and it kept deteriorating. He lost all of his teeth and needed dentures, and he lost his eyesight. His legs and hands became numb, leaving this once strong and capable man disabled. He was then afflicted with a blood clot and was diagnosed with diabetes. He had turned into an invalid and because his family lived far away, and there was no one to take care of him.
When he had reached a low point, he visited a Falun Dafa practitioner who had talked to him about Dafa. He told her that he was at his wit's end, since neither injections nor medication helped him.
The practitioner told him that there was something that could make a difference. “There is a picture of Teacher Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, in your daughter's home,” she told him. “You can burn incense and kneel in front of the picture and tell Teacher that you are truly repentant. You should admit that you were wrong. If you are no longer hostile toward Dafa, then you should ask Teacher to pardon you.”
Too embarrassed to admit that he was wrong, he left, went home, and did exactly what the practitioner told him to do. He returned to the practitioner's home about a week later after his health had turned for the better.
11. Believing in Falun Dafa, Life Is Saved at a Critical Moment
A woman from Qianzhangzi Village in Lingyuan City came to the home of a Falun Dafa practitioner one night in 2009. As soon as she entered, she knelt down in front of the photo of Teacher Li and bowed to him again and again. She sobbed and said, “It was Teacher Li who saved my husband’s life today. Thank you for saving his life!”
As it turned out, the woman's husband Wang Fu, 53, hauled goods from another location that day. When they traveled along a winding mountain path, his van’s brakes suddenly stopped working, and the vehicle sped down toward a deep chasm of a few hundred meters. The three people in the van were terrified. They could only close their eyes and wait to die.
Suddenly, Wang remembered that a Falun Dafa practitioner told him to recite two sentences when he was in danger, so he shouted, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Dafa please save me!”
As soon as he stopped shouting, it was as if someone pushed the speeding van into a different direction, where it collided with a large tree by the roadside. Wang was not injured. One of the passengers had a broken arm, and the other passenger's face was scratched. Neither injury was life threatening.
When Falun Dafa practitioners clarified the truth to Wang Fu in the past, he accepted the informational materials and quit the CCP. So, he survived the accident untouched, and his two colleagues also benefited from his decision.
The three men later held a party for friends and relatives to celebrate surviving the accident. At the dinner table, the three men could not wait to recount the incident. They all credited Falun Dafa's founder for saving their lives and told all those present that Falun Dafa is good. During the party, Wang also helped relatives and friends quit the CCP.
12. Da Li Stops Police from Persecuting Good People
The Lingyuan City Hospital admitted Da Li, 42, a man who was diagnosed with inflammation of the heart and told him that he needed surgery. However, just a day later, the doctor found that Da Li was in good health. The doctors and nurses were dumbfounded.
As it went, after practitioners talked to him about Dafa, he quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
When he worked in the field near the village entrance on March 28, 2009, a few police came by and asked him what the practitioners in that village were up to.
“Nothing,” he said. “Why do you monitor and harass Dafa all day long instead of going after the bad guys anyway. Go back! There is nothing that concerns you here. The police left without another word.
Of course, he attributed his recovery to him helping practitioners.
13. Saved in Life-Threatening Accident
When Mr. Huo, in his 40s, drove through a mountainous area, the brakes of his car suddenly stopped working. The car sped up downhill.
One of his passengers, a practitioner, shouted for help. “Falun Dafa is good!” he said. “Master, please save us!” All others in the car joined into shouting these words.
The car then stopped at the edge of a cliff. The people were in shock and got out of the car, knelt down, and bowed and thanked the Teacher of Dafa over and over again for saving them. Some of them were moved to tears.
Mr. Huo asked the practitioner for Dafa informational materials, came to understand the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa, and quit the CCP. Every time he now goes on a trip, he burns incense and recites the two sentences, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
14. Kindness Toward Dafa Is Rewarded
Some practitioners talked to a manager in a factory in Lingyuan about Dafa. He listened carefully and understood everything they told him. He later protected practitioners and their books and materials from officials looking to stir up trouble.
When he was on the factory floor with several leaders of the factory, a gas leak caused an explosion. The plant collapsed and he lost consciousness. When he came to, he saw a light and climbed out. He checked himself and found he was not hurt. Two of those who were with him died, and another was severely injured while another lost his legs.
Over the next few years, he was promoted. Two factories with poor results merged and the results did not improve after two of the leaders resigned. Immediately, after this man took over the leadership, the results improved and workers received more income.
His son was average at school, but did well enough in the college entrance exams to be admitted into a top university. His son is now abroad.
People did not understand why his family achieved so much success and his career had taken off. Of course, he was rewarded for his kindness and mindset toward Dafa.
15. Extraordinary Experience in Ruyi Village
When village leaders of Ruyi Village in Lingyuan City were laying the foundation for an asphalt road in early July 2005, the front wheels of a 10-wheeler dump truck loaded with 12 tons of sand and gravel sank into the mud. Eight of the village leaders in charge of the project dug down into the mud in hopes of reaching solid ground. However, the wheels sank deeper and deeper instead, until they were completely submerged. Some wanted to unload the truck while others said that a crane was needed. No one knew what to do.
Practitioner Ms. Yulan noticed that the truck tilted forward. She said, “If you keep digging like this, the whole truck will sink down. It’s better to shout 'Falun Dafa is good.'” So one person immediately shouted it.
“It’s not enough for you to shout on your own. When everyone shouts together it’s more powerful,” she said.
The eight leaders shouted in unison that Falun Dafa is good. It was as if a sonic boom filled the valley, and the truck began reversing out of the mud puddle.
16. Silently Repeating "Falun Dafa Is Good," Cancer Disappears
An elderly woman in Jiuzhangzi Village, Lingyuan City, went to a hospital in the spring of 2004. Doctors diagnosed her with esophageal cancer and told her to go home.
Her family did not tell her the truth about her condition. When she returned home, her daughter-in-law said, “Mom, if you seriously recite 'Falun Dafa is good' every day from now on, you will recover.” She accepted the advice and recited this sentence over and over again. The doctors said that there was nothing wrong with her a few days later.
Thereafter, she made a point to tell people to remember that, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
The above examples are just a few stories told in China today. Many people talk about how Dafa has helped them recuperate or saved them during serious accidents. They speak of how much they admire Dafa and its practitioners and how thankful they are to the cultivation practice.
