Practicing Falun Dafa: Remarkable Recoveries from Life-Threatening Illnesses
(Minghui.org) Many stories are being told of people who recovered from life-threatening illnesses after they started to practice Falun Dafa, not only in China, but also worldwide. Two such stories are recounted in this article that spoke of people who were granted a second life after practicing Falun Dafa.
Recovering from Late Stage Lung Cancer
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in China
When the doctor diagnosed me with last stage lung cancer, it sounded like a death sentence to me. I was 60 years old. Money and social status all of a sudden became meaningless.
I believed in science, but medical science could not cure me. Surgery and radiation therapy were not effective in treating my final stage lung cancer, so the doctor suggested chemotherapy.
After a period of chemotherapy, I developed skin blisters. It was so itchy that I could not sleep, and I had to restrain myself from scratching.
Later on the doctor stopped the chemotherapy. I was in extreme pain, running a high fever, and my digestive system ceased to work. I could not eat or drink because of the mouth ulcers. I could not urinate, and was constipated. Sitting up or lying down was difficult, thus I could not sleep.
Remembering the Power of Falun Dafa
I thought about Falun Dafa while in a semiconscious state. There was a glimmer of hope deep in my heart. I asked Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, to save me. I told my wife, “Go find the auntie that practices Falun Dafa, I want to learn the practice!”
I tried learning the sitting meditation with the practitioner, and an indescribable energy held me up. When I stretched my arms sideways, I felt I was immersed in a gentle and wonderful energy field.
I realized that Master Li was helping me! Tears of gratitude covered my face.
I fell asleep afterward. When I woke up, I felt like a new person, and was able to eat and go to the bathroom. It recovered within one night from a life threatening illness.
My wife and I read Falun Dafa books, mostly Zhuan Falun, the main book of the practice, and did the exercises every day. I fully recovered within seven days. I gained eight pounds within two weeks, and was able to drive and return to work.
My recovery shocked everyone around me! Friends and family came to visit and witnessed the incredible power of Dafa. They all praised the practice from the bottom of their heart, “Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is truly amazing!”
Two Books That Changed My Life
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province, China
When young, I contracted an unusual disorder and fell into a coma.
Someone had to feed and clean me. I had no emotions and could not talk. And when I woke up, I experienced an excruciating stomach pain.
The doctors could not figure out what I had, so they called it a “strange disease.” I experienced this illness three times, and they lasted a total of nine years and nine months.
My wife and children took good care of me, and took me to the hospital. The doctor diagnosed me with a duodenal ulcer and advised surgery. After cutting me open, he found that I was not afflicted with a duodenal ulcer. He made another incision on the other side of my belly, but did not find anything.
The doctor performed three surgeries within eight days. The areas of the incision started to bleed and fester.
I am a farmer and the main worker of the family. My illness created a huge financial burden on my family. When I fell ill, my wife had to sell vegetables to make a living. My two children were young, and often went hungry. This situation continued until 1995, until my children were grown.
Introduced to Dafa by the Practices Introductory and Main Book
My daughter brought home a Falun Dafa book one day, so that my wife could take up this cultivation practice. My wife, a Buddhist, saw Master Li’s photo in the book, and had a good feeling about the practice.
She read the books Falun Gong, the introductory book, Zhuan Falun, the main book, and did the exercises every day. The more she read the better she understood the reasons for life and other questions she had. Thus, she first had me read Falun Gong, and then Zhuan Falun.
To my happiness, I was able to stand after six days, and I made some rice for my wife. My wife came home from work, and could not believe what she saw – the two Falun Dafa books enabled a bedridden man to stand and move about. It was unbelievable!
I was able to help with the housework, ride the tricycle, and sell vegetables. I later joined the tricycle team to transport decorative materials such as tiles and fiberboard.
My health improved. I am 69 years old now. My wife and I are both healthy and happy. Thank you, Master Li, for granting me a second life.
