Falun Dafa Has Blessed Me and My 106-Year-Old Mother
(Minghui.org) I struggled with illness all my life until twenty years ago, when I found Falun Dafa. At the age of 76, I am still healthy and energetic. My mother, now 106 years old, and other friends and family have also benefited from this amazing practice.
Since I was young, I had suffered many illnesses including heart disease, liver problems, stomach ulcer, and had suffered a nervous breakdown. With all these problems, along with chronic lower back pain and skin disease, I did not think I would make it past my mid-fifties.
However, everything turned around after I took up Falun Dafa in 1995. All of my major illnesses disappeared, as did several minor problems such as athlete's foot and bad breath.
Elderly Mother Recovers from a Bad Fall
My mother, also a practitioner, lives with us. When we celebrated her 104th birthday in summer 2011, one relative congratulated her, saying our family was fortunate to have five generations living together. My mother said proudly that she was probably one of the luckiest people in the world who has happiness, longevity, and prestige.
As we came back home later that day, my mother fell down on the sidewalk. My husband (also a practitioner) and I immediately recited “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” By the time she went to bed, her pain had greatly subsided. She completely recovered within two or three weeks, which is remarkable for a person her age.
Helping with My Son's PhD Project
Practicing Falun Dafa not only improves health, but also wisdom.
My son, a PhD candidate in mechanical engineering, called me one day in March later year, saying that his mentoring professor was unsatisfied with his dissertation. More specifically, the professor said my son's writing was unclear and humiliated him, making my son angry and depressed.
After hanging up the phone, I talked with my husband. We both knew it was not accidental to encounter this. I called my son back to encourage him not to take it personally and to think about how he could take the criticism constructively.
We then went to visit our son and asked him for the dissertation draft. I glanced through the paper, asked my son questions, and soon got a rough idea. I discussed with him about the key formulas and soon realized why the professor was unhappy. I then found a way that the calculation could be simplified, making it clearer and easier to understand.
My son and his wife were surprised that I, who graduated with a bachelor's in electronics 50 years ago, could help a PhD candidate in mechanical engineering. I explained, “No, I didn't have that high level of knowledge. It is my Teacher (founder of Falun Dafa) who gave me wisdom.”
My son revised his dissertation and got his professor's approval.
Supporting Dafa Brings Reward
Because of the massive propaganda and severe persecution of Falun Dafa in China, many people were misled and became hostile towards practitioners. For those who have the courage to support the innocent, they are often rewarded with good fortune. The following are two such cases involving two of my friends.
One friend had heart disease and was scheduled for surgery to receive stents. Wanting to help him, I told him all about Falun Dafa and encouraged him to recite “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He took my advice and his health quickly improved. The doctor found that he improved so much that the surgery was no longer needed.
Another friend lost sight in both eyes after retina detachment. He underwent two surgeries, but the results were minimal and he was left with a lot of pain in his eyes. After he followed my advice to recite “Falun Dafa is good”and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” the pain subsided and he could see some light. Two months later, he received a third surgery, similar to the previous ones. The doctors did not expect much, but surprisingly, my friend regained sight in both eyes. He said to me, “I really want to thank your Teacher and Falun Dafa.”
