My Family and Friends Benefit from Dafa and Help Spread the Truth
(Minghui.org) Over the past 23 years since I began practicing Falun Dafa, I have benefited in many areas of my life. However, it's not just me––my family, relatives, and friends have also benefited from the practice.
They're very thankful for Falun Dafa, and each of them has their own story. Here are just a few examples of them.
My Second Sister Respects Master
My second sister is a Buddhist and often goes to the temple; my third sister and I practice Falun Dafa. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Dafa, my second sister tried to persuade my third sister and me to convert to Buddhism. Over the years, we had clarified the truth to her many times. Gradually, she came to understand the facts about Dafa, and even chose to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa), with his compassion, helped my second sister to resolve some challenges in her life.
Once, she was very dejected because she couldn't find a job. In her sorrow, she saw an image of Master Li (Falun Dafa's founder), who told her that a job was waiting for her. A few minutes later, the manager of the job agency she was working with called her and told her to go to work immediately. My second sister was very grateful to Master.
Since then, she often bows to Master's photo. After she receives new truth-clarification materials and finishes reading them, she would share them with her friends who believe in Buddhism. She also told the people around her about the evil history of the CCP.
Once, I clarified the truth to a friend of hers, who believes in Buddhism.
This person said to me: "Some of you Falun Gong practitioners have told me the same thing. One of them told me about quitting the CCP. I joined the CCP’s affiliated organizations but I don’t want to quit because I believe in Buddhism. I am afraid there will be some conflicts between quitting the CCP and my faith in Buddhism."
"If you quit, you'll leave the CCP, which will give you peace of mind,” I said. “This does not conflict with your belief in Buddhism. After you quit the CCP, you can continue to believe in Buddhism. You don’t have to practice Falun Dafa, but you get the peace of mind of knowing that you're no longer affiliated with an organization that commits inhuman deeds."
I continued talking to her, pointing to my second sister.
"My sister already quit long ago. Now she still believes in Buddhism. It can only do you good."
"My younger sister is right,” said my second sister.
She then told her friend about how Master helped her find a part-time job. She also told her about how corrupt the CCP was and how it has harmed to the country and the Chinese people.
After hearing this, the friend seemed to understand.
“I want to quit. I don't want to be a member of it. I only want peace and safety,” she told us.
My second elder sister has received many blessings from knowing the truth and helping spread the truth of Dafa. She is 75 years old, and she is still in good health. She and her husband not only cultivate several acres of farmland for her family, but have also contracted a few more acres of farmland from their relatives to cultivate. People around her say that she is getting younger and younger each day.
My Husband Helps Spread the Truth
I obtained Falun Dafa when I was seriously ill, helpless and bedridden. I had a miraculous recovery only after I practiced Falun Dafa.
My husband once said, "Falun Dafa is a miraculous practice." He thanked Master and Falun Dafa from the bottom of his heart.
After the CCP and Jiang Zemin started to persecute Falun Dafa in July 1999, the police took my husband to the police station because I practiced Falun Dafa.
The police interrogated him.
“Why don’t you discipline your wife? Why do you allow her to practice Falun Dafa?”
“Falun Dafa saved my wife’s life when she was ill and dying,” my husband replied.
“Do you mean that Falun Dafa is good?”
“Yes, I do mean that Falun Dafa is good.”
After practicing Falun Dafa, I haven't taken any medication in the past 23 years, and I could farm while my husband worked outside. It's almost as if my life is getting better every year.
Years ago, my husband said to me, "In the past 20 years, you have saved 200,000 yuan in medical expenses for the family."
My husband is in good health. He works year-round. In addition, he is one of the top performers at his workplace. The people in our village admire him, saying that he has benefited from my practice of Falun Dafa.
He has indeed benefited a lot from Dafa because he respects it and supports my cultivation. Master saved him three times when he encountered three major accidents. He survived unscathed, and his ill luck turned into good fortune.
My husband took a truth-clarification key pendant with him every day ever since he received one from a practitioner. Some of his colleagues saw it, thought it looked very beautiful, and asked him for it, so he gave them some as well. Under his influence, some people wanted to know about Falun Dafa, so he passed along some literature to them.
Many of his colleagues knew that I practice Falun Dafa. Once, after receiving a call telling them the truth about Dafa, my husband's workshop supervisor told him that it must be me who had made this call because others did not know his phone number.
After the supervisor understood the truth of Dafa, he was blessed and enjoyed good health. He is now more than 70 years old and full of energy.
Three weeks ago, I received some exquisitely-made truth-clarification pendants that can be hung up in cars. The pendants were very beautiful.
After seeing them, my husband immediately asked for one to give to his coworker.
I saw that he was willing to pass them out, so I said to him, “It’s the autumn harvest season, and I don’t have time to go out. These are for saving people and cannot be kept at home.”
He said, “I’ll take them to my factory and pass them out for you. Nobody can resist such pretty pendants.”
He told me after he got back home from work that he had passed them all out.
A Friend Donates Money to Save Sentient Beings
My friend Jinxia had helped my family build our new house. Her husband and son also came to help my family when I was arbitrarily detained and imprisoned by the CCP.
Jinxia and her husband worked hard and contributed a lot during the construction of my house. All her family members also quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Therefore, they were all blessed.
Ten years ago, Jinxia and her family moved to our provincial capital and bought an apartment. They were the first family in our village to move to the city. In recent years, she and her husband have both worked and farmed, earning a considerable income each year. Her son bought a car and an apartment. Jinxia's grandson is smart and very cute. Their family is prosperous with enough money to cover all their wants.
However, when I had a video chat with Jinxia days ago, she looked very pale. She said she had just been discharged from the hospital. The next day after our chat, I went to visit her and brought her an MP3 player with Falun Dafa stories loaded onto it and also an amulet.
I asked her to follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, and to recite "Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion -Forbearance is good." I assured her that if she did as I asked, she would be blessed by the divine and quickly recover.
"I will definitely remember what you said,” she told me.
Before I left, Jinxia gave me 100 yuan and asked me to donate it to Dafa practitioners who were making truth-clarification literature.
"You have such a good heart,” I said. “I will accept your kindness, but not your money. I know you've just spent more than eight thousand yuan in the hospital. Please buy some supplements for yourself with this money.”
“Please take it!” Jinxia said. “Don’t worry! Since everyone in my family makes money, we have enough."
In the end, I accepted the money. The practitioners were all moved by Jinxia’s kindness after I took the money to them.
