Power of Dafa: The Lump on My Sister-in-Law’s Spine Vanished
(Minghui.org) My family of three visited my parents before the 2002 Chinese New Year. I found that my sister-in-law was not the happy person I knew her to be. She operated a barbershop and usually was very busy before the New Year. She loved to talk and laugh. But this time she looked worried and in pain.
When I asked her what was wrong, she said that she was very ill. Her cervical spine had become severely deformed, and she had a lump the size of an egg on the back of her neck. The lump was so big that it made her neck curve unnaturally. She went to the hospital to seek medical options and tried various alternative treatments, such as stretching and massage, but nothing helped.
Then she began to have headaches. Her entire body became so stiff that she could not raise her head or turn her neck. At night, she couldn’t lie down and had to sleep in a semi-upright position. Her condition caused her a lot of pain. She was very worried and didn’t know what to do next.
Clarifying the Truth about Dafa
I told her, “Don’t worry. Let me tell you about Falun Dafa. After I began to practice several years ago, I recovered from all my ailments and stopped using any medications. Many people have recovered from their health problems after practicing Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa is the Buddha Law, so it is very powerful.”
She asked, “Do you still practice?” I responded, “Of course, why would I stop practicing something so good?”
She agreed and complimented me for looking so healthy.
I told her about the benefits of practicing Falun Dafa. I also clarified the truth about the Tiananmen self-immolation, a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as an excuse to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners.
“Have you seen the so-called ‘self-immolation’ video produced by CCTV?” I asked. She replied that she did and that it scared her. I pointed out several flaws in the video.
First, the man named Wang Jindong “burned” himself, but the green Sprite bottle of gasoline between his legs did not burn despite the fire. She agreed that was impossible.
Second, a person's hair easily catches fire, but his hair was intact. How was that possible? She added that his eyebrows should have been burned as well but were not.
Third, the police were holding a blanket but waited until Wang had shouted the slogan before covering him with it to put out the fire. Didn’t this seem more like acting? My sister-in-law agreed.
Fourth, it was very strange that the police just happened to be patrolling with a fire extinguisher that day. Also, there were so many views taken from different angles: from high above, telephoto shots, short-focus views, and close-ups. Why were all these shots taken if there was a real emergency in progress? This was clearly a setup.
My sister-in-law suddenly realized, “Why didn’t I think about these things before? The CCP fabricated that incident to malign Falun Dafa!”
I told her that people reacted to the repeated playing of that video without thinking very much about it. The CCP wanted to incite hatred. She replied, “Those CCP officials are very bad. How could they do such a thing?” I also told her about the goodness of Dafa, and she listened very carefully.
Experiencing the Power of Dafa
I stayed at my parent’s house for nine days. The day before I left, my sister-in-law cooked with us and had a good time. She said she felt very relaxed and less fatigued during the past few days. Out of habit, she touched the back of her neck and suddenly shouted, “The lump is gone!”
My child and I hurried over to look at it, and it really had disappeared. My sister-in-law said emotionally, “Dafa is so miraculous! After listening to you tell me the truth about Dafa, the lump on my neck went away and my spine became normal!”
I told her that this was the compassion of Dafa's Teacher and the mighty virtue of Dafa, which is righteous and has boundless power. She had recovered when listening to and accepting the truth about Dafa.
She replied, “It is really incredible! It would be hard to believe if this happened to someone else.” Even to this day, 18 years later, my sister-in-law’s spine is still fine.
